Cosmic Extensions make it possible to extend the functionality of Cosmic for both the developer and editor. Developers are given a canvas to create interactive views, connect to third-party APIs and customize the editor experience. 

A recent example built by the Cosmic Community is the Google Analytics Extension, which allows team members to easily see analytics insights directly in their Cosmic Bucket Dashboard. In this blog I'll show you how to install and integrate the Google Analytics Extension into your Cosmic Dashboard in 3 easy steps.
