πŸ› οΈ Installation

Install via the Cosmic CLI:

I set up an example Bucket for this blog:


Run 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 ToDo App that can be managed entirely from your Cosmic JS Bucket Dashboard and Command Line Terminal tool of choice. 

Conclusion
