For small projects with a simple domain model, we should have a client-side tool that provides a basic admin backend in no time. How about a tool that can suit applications built on any server language (PHP, Node.js, Go, etc.) and using any persistence engine (PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB, etc.)? Get rid of the language and storage problems, and simply plug it to one common standard, a RESTful API. That's what ng-admin does.
