20 CodeCanyon PHP Scripts for Adminpanel-like Projects
Usually when we think about web-projects, we mean websites that consist of front-end view and back-end adminpanel. But there are other types of projects – I call them web-applications. They are more like data management software, just in a browser instead of a Windows/Mac. In fact, you can treat them as adminpanel-only projects. This is a perfect case for our QuickAdmin, so we decided to search for more examples, and the best place for that is CodeCanyon scripts library. So here’s what we’ve found.
For this review, we’ve taken the most popular scripts. Most of them are priced from $20 to $50 have 1000-5000 sales. So these packages may be quite a good business for their creators, even taking into account CodeCanyon fee and taxes.

Conclusions and takeaways
By analyzing those scripts and project, we’ve noticed some similarities and patterns between them, here they are:
- Adminpanels are viable business: It is totally possible to create adminpanel-only web-applications and make money out of them
- There’s no overnight success: The most successful packages on CodeCanyon are at least 2 years old, more likely 3-5 years old
- Documentation is the key: if you want to sell your packages to masses, make sure documentation is clear and is easy-to-read
- Enough of project management software: project management software market is too saturated – apparently, not only in the SaaS space, but in ready-made scripts market, too
So these are the packages and project we’ve mentioned. Any project we’ve missed and you want to add to the list? Or maybe you have comments about this list?
