Cosmic offers a headless CMS that enables content managers and developers to work better together. By providing an intuitive Admin Dashboard, powerful APIs, and flexible user roles, applications are built faster, more light-weight, and your whole team ends up saving time in the process. To demonstrate how easy it is to get started with Cosmic, I'll quickstart a Nuxt.js Website Boilerplate using the Cosmic CLI and connect it with my Cosmic Bucket Dashboard.

This website boilerplate satisfies some common website requirements including: 

  • dynamic pages
  • blog articles
  • author management
  • SEO ability
  • contact form
  • website search


🛠️ 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 Nuxt.js Website Boilerplate 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 Nuxt.js Website Boilerplate 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. 🔥
