QuickStart a React Auth App Using a Headless CMS API
Cosmic offers a headless CMS that enables content managers and developers to work better together. By providing an intuitive Admin Dashboard, powerful APIs, and flexible user roles, applications are built faster, more light-weight, and your whole team ends up saving time in the process.
To demonstrate how easy it is to get started with Cosmic, we'll utilize the Cosmic CLI to quickstart a React Auth App. This app shows implementation of Authentication in ReactJS, NextJS and NodeJS using the Cosmic API. This app has all the basic modules like signin, signup, view/edit profile, forgot password and reset password. It will be locally downloaded to your command line tool and available to connect with your Cosmic Bucket Dashboard.

QuickStart a React Auth App using a Headless CMS API
Cosmic is an example of a robust headless CMS and API that's promoting collaboration on cross-functional teams to build apps faster. Get started building Cosmic-powered apps in seconds 🚀 We have Node.js, React, Vue, Gatsby and Serverless Starters to help you get your project started quickly. There are over 70 app examples available in the Cosmic Apps Marketplace to speed up your project as well. Today we'll be using the Cosmic CLI to quickstart a React Auth App.
Install via the Cosmic CLI:
I set up an example Bucket for this blog:
cosmic -h for a list of all commands. Run
cosmic [command] -h for details on options for a specific command. You're now up and running with a React Auth App that can be managed entirely from your Cosmic Bucket Dashboard and Command Line Terminal tool of choice.
I was able to easily install a React Auth App using a headless CMS API that I can now use to manage dynamic content changes. When ditching the installed content management system and going API-first isn't quick enough, check out the Starter Apps from Cosmic to get a project up and running in seconds. 🔥
