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.
