Story Licensing is a site for users to find and republish high-quality and high traffic blog posts on their own site, application or blog. Cosmic partnered with AMI to build the Story Licensing application using some of the most powerful development tools available. By offloading the non-core development functionality onto available API services, our cross-functional teams were able to build this application faster than we ever could have imagined.
AMI stands for ArtMap, Inc. and is a collection of publications that range from Hackernoon to Art + Marketing and P.S. I Love You. A backup of each AMI publication's content is stored in Cosmic. The team plugged in Algolia to search the available content and integrated SendGrid to notify the publisher and writer of a republishing lead. You can see more about how Story Licensing was built here.
"When the opportunity to work with Hacker Noon contributors Tony Spiro and Carson Gibbons came up, I jumped on the opportunity. Their API-first content management platform Cosmic was perfect (and super simple) for connecting best-in-class services like Algolia for search and SendGrid for email. In terms of providing the framework for teams to quickly build quality professional apps, Cosmic is definitely onto something.”
