QuickStart a Vue.js Music App Using an API-first CMS


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. Our community just debuted a new music application that we'll use today for our demo. 

To demonstrate how easy it is to get started with Cosmic JS, we'll utilize the Cosmic JS CLI to quickstart a Vue.js Music App. This Music website was built using Vue, Nuxt and Cosmic JS. Users can upload and play tracks, upload and manage album art plus leave comments. It will be locally downloaded to your command line tool and available to connect with your Cosmic JS Bucket Dashboard.

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 Vue.js Music App that can be managed entirely from your Cosmic JS Bucket Dashboard and Command Line Terminal tool of choice.
