Community Articles QuickStart a Vue.js App Using a CMS API

Vue.js is an open-source JavaScript framework for building user interfaces that's steadily been gaining popularity over the last several years. The upside for Vue developers is that integrating into projects that use other JavaScript libraries is simplified with Vue because it is designed to be incrementally adoptable. Utilizing a headless CMS to integrate with a Vue.js application is a breeze as using a headless CMS API allows developers to build their app using their favorite tools while allowing marketers and content managers to manage content from a web-based Dashboard. 

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.



Cosmic makes it easy to manage content for your Vue.js applications. You can install the Official Cosmic JavaScript Client to integrate your Vue.js app today, or keep reading to install the Vue.js Starter.
