QuickStart a Nuxt.js Website Using a Headless CMS API


Cosmic JS 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 JS, I'll quickstart a Nuxt.js Website Boilerplate using the Cosmic JS CLI and connect it with my Cosmic JS Bucket Dashboard.

Get started building Cosmic-powered apps in seconds 🚀 We have Node.js, React, Vue, Gatsby and Serverless Starters to help you get your project started quickly. There are over 70 app examples available in the Cosmic JS Apps Marketplace to speed up your project as well. Today we'll be using the Cosmic JS CLI to quickstart a Nuxt.js Website Boilerplate.

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 JS 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 JS  to get a project up and running in seconds. 🔥
