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 React ToDo 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 React ToDo 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 React ToDo 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. 🔥
