Product Update: View as Editor


We're happy to release a new feature that helps you collaborate with your team members easier using Cosmic JS. Introducing View as Editor.

As a developer, getting a CMS set up for your content creators requires a certain level of empathy. It's your job to make a technology choice that allows them to work in a comfortable environment and only see what they need to get their job done.

With the new "View as Editor" toggle now available in your Bucket for the developer and admin roles (see gif below), you can preview the entire Bucket experience from the vantage point of your content creators hiding all developer features and settings.


So now when you add your content creators in the editor role, you can be sure that you are giving them an intuitive and easy-to-use editing experience.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this and other ways to make it easier for teams of developers and content creators to collaborate. Join the conversation on Slack and reach out to us on Twitter.

You can now use Cosmic JS to deploy your GitHub private repos to the web.  All you have to do is sign up or sign in using your GitHub account and authorize access to your private repos. (Don't worry, we only access your private repos when you are ready to deploy them to the web).


After you authorize access the process is super easy.  Just go to Your Bucket > Settings > Deploy Web App and choose which private (or public) GitHub repo you would like to deploy. You can also deploy an app from any public Git repo url (make sure your app follows the Heroku deployment guidelines).


Click Deploy Web App and your private repo will be deployed to the world!
