New Feature: Media Metadata


by Tony Spiro on August 25, 2017

We're excited to announce you now have the ability to add metadata to your Bucket Media.  It's easy and just takes a couple steps:

1. Go to the Media area in your Bucket located in Your Bucket Dashboard > Media.  Hover over the Media that you want to add metadata to and click "Add Metadata".


2. Add your key / values to the Media and click "Save Metadata".


3. Your Media now has the metadata available via the media endpoint.


This is another Community-requested feature to help you and your team Build Apps Faster.  If you have any questions, connect with us on Twitter and join other members of our Community in conversation on our Slack channel.

In this article I’m going to show you how to quickly and easily create a cross-platform blog that will connect your content across Web, iOS and Android.  With content powered but Cosmic JS, you will be able to edit your content once and deliver the update simultaneously across all devices and platforms.  This is powerful stuff.  Let’s get started.

We’re excited to announce Extensions, a powerful new way to create custom experiences using Cosmic JS.  With Cosmic JS Extensions, you can now build applications directly into your Bucket Dashboard giving you the power to create customized views and communicate with third party APIs to extend the functionality of Cosmic JS.

In this Developer Spotlight we sit down with Ben Packer, a web developer who's writing code for a cause.

It's now easier to get started using Cosmic JS as your content platform.  After signing in, click "Add new bucket" and you will see that you now have the option to install a starter bucket.  

After you click "Install", your starter bucket will be imported to a new bucket and your app zip file will be downloaded to your machine.  At that point you can extract the files and configure your new app to connect to your new Cosmic JS bucket.  

This is meant to help familiarize you with how to set up your bucket to best manage content for your websites and apps.  Sign in and enjoy!
