Cosmic is an API-first content management platform that makes it easy to add content to any existing or new application. Developers get a suite of powerful APIs while content managers manage content in a familiar cloud-based content editor. To demonstrate how easy it is to get started with Cosmic, we'll utilize the Cosmic CLI to quickstart a Node.js User Management App

This example user management app is built using Node.js and Cosmic. User information is stored as objects in your Cosmic dashboard for easy adding, editing and extending.

There are over 70 app examples available in the Cosmic Apps Marketplace to speed up your project as well. Today we'll be using the Cosmic CLI to quickstart a Node.js User Management App.


🛠️ Installation

Install via the Cosmic CLI:

I set up an example Bucket for this blog:


Run cosmic -h for a list of all commands. Run cosmic [command] -h for details on options for a specific command. You're now up and running with a Node.js User Management App that can be managed entirely from your Cosmic Bucket Dashboard and Command Line Terminal tool of choice. 




Conclusion

I was able to easily install a Node.js User Management App using a headless CMS API that I can now use to manage dynamic content changes. When ditching the installed content management system and going API-first isn't quick enough, check out the Starter Apps from Cosmic  to get a project up and running in seconds. 🔥
