In an effort to make it easier to create content-ready applications as well as manage content, you can now install and deploy applications using Cosmic.  It's the fastest and easiest way to go from 0 to content-ready web app (about 2 minutes!) without any server or configuration hassle.  It's really cool and only requires a few steps:

1. Sign in to your Cosmic account
2. Choose a bucket then navigate on the left sidenav to Settings > Apps
3. Select your app and click "Install"
4. Go to Settings > Deploy Web App and click "Deploy Web App"



In about 2 minutes your application will be deployed and connected to your Cosmic bucket.  Add and edit content easily and review from the deployed location.  Choose from one of the provided apps or add the link to the public git repo to clone your own app into deployment.

You can deploy your applications from any GitHub, BitBucket or any other public repo. Your application will be deployed to it's own isolated Docker container using Dokku, a Docker-powered mini-Heroku. This means that you can build your app in any language and easily deploy it from Cosmic!  You can find out more about how to make apps Dokku compatible by reading Heroku documentation

If you would like to contribute apps to be available on Cosmic, please contact support@cosmicjs.com.  Happy building!
