Community Articles QuickStart a Vue.js Store Locator App Using a Headless CMS API

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 is unopionated about the content models employed, as well as the format of content Objects being managed. In this example blog we'll utilize Cosmic to quickstart a store locator built using Vue.js, Vuex and the Google Maps API. 

To demonstrate how easy it is to get started with Cosmic, we'll utilize the Cosmic CLI to quickstart a Vue.js Store Locator built using Vue.js, Vuex and the Google Maps API. It will be locally downloaded to your command line tool and available to connect with your Cosmic Bucket Dashboard.

🛠️ 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 Vue.js Store Locator 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 Vue.js Store Locator 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. 🔥
