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, we'll utilize the Cosmic CLI to quickstart a React Auth App.  This app shows implementation of Authentication in ReactJS, NextJS and NodeJS using the Cosmic API. This app has all the basic modules like signin, signup, view/edit profile, forgot password and reset password. It will be locally downloaded to your command line tool and available to connect with your Cosmic Bucket Dashboard.

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 React Auth App that can be managed entirely from your Cosmic Bucket Dashboard and Command Line Terminal tool of choice.
