How to Add Google Analytics Insights in Cosmic JS


Cosmic JS Extensions make it possible to extend the functionality of Cosmic JS for both the developer and editor. Developers are given a canvas to create interactive views, connect to third-party APIs and customize the editor experience. 

A recent example built by the Cosmic JS Community is the Google Analytics Extension, which allows team members to easily see analytics insights directly in their Cosmic JS Bucket Dashboard.
