Components customization

Fforeign-sapphire10/23/2023
Hello. Is there a way to customize components in Refine? If so, where can I find documentation on this topic? Additionally, I'm looking for information on how backend work is handled, specifically, the setup and configuration of the backend.

Hi @shvetspavel. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Yes, you can customize components in Refine. One way to do this is by creating your own Sider Menu with Refine. Here's an example of how to do it:
npm create refine-app@latest -- --example customization-sider
npm create refine-app@latest -- --example customization-sider
You can find more information about this in the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/examples/customization/customSider/). Another way to customize components is by using the swizzle command. This command allows you to copy the default Sider component to your project, enabling you to customize the sider as you want. More information about the swizzle command can be found in the swizzle documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/cli/#swizzle). As for the backend work, Refine is backend agnostic, meaning it supports any custom Rest or Graphql API out of the box. You can set up and configure your backend as per your requirements and then integrate it with Refine. Unfortunately, the extracts provided do not include specific instructions or code examples for this process. However, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/) for more information on setting up and configuring Refine with your backend. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Hello @shvetspavel you can use swizzle feature if you need to customize some components, data providers https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/cli/#swizzle We are purely frontend framework and we use dataProvider as a data layer to connect to your backend, you can see docs here: https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/providers/data-provider/#usage
Data Provider | refine
Data provider acts as a data layer for your app, making HTTP requests and encapsulating how the data is retrieved. The methods of these requests are then consumed by refine via data hooks.
CLI | refine
refine CLI is a command line application that allows you to interact with your refine project and perform some tasks. This includes creating a new resource, managing updates, swizzle components, and runs your project (build, start, dev).
