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.
