In this video I walk you through adding localization to your Cosmic JS object types.  This allows you to add versions of your content in different languages and locales.

There is also a Localization Example App available on the  Cosmic JS Apps page.

In this installment of the Cosmic JS Developer Spotlight Series, we sat down with Diego Perez, a Demandware / Software Developer residing in Spain who recently submitted the new Angular Company Website in the Cosmic Community. Follow Diego on Twitter, LinkedIn or GitHub, and enjoy the Q/A.

We know first hand the problem of building websites and apps on a time crunch.  And it's always nice to find something pre-built that you can simply pull "off-the-shelf" and customize to fit your needs.

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 JS.  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 JS 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 JS 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 JS!  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 JS, please contact support@cosmicjs.com.  Happy building!

Extendible Objects is one of the most powerful features of Cosmic JS.  And this powerful feature just became more intuitive with a new property added to all endpoint responses: Metadata.

We are excited to announce that you can now use all of the Cosmic JS features in a full demo before signing up for an official Cosmic JS account.
