How it works
1. Add the Automatic Daily Backups Add-on in Bucket Dashboard > Settings > Billing.
2. Every day at 12am UTC a Backup of your Bucket will be saved.
3. You will be able to manually save a Snapshot of your Bucket at any time as well.

We hope you enjoy using the new Automatic Bucket Backups for peace of mind to know that every day your Bucket is saved as a Snapshot for easy backup and emergency restore.  Management of Snapshots is easy with naming, deleting and downloading available.

Here I am again, writing late at night with more thoughts on Cosmic JS and what it could do for developers and content creators.  For some reason I keep thinking about Doogie Houser and that theme song...

So here's what I'm thinking: Everything is going the way of subscription services.  Music, movies, tv, enterprise software, you name it there is a company out there that will offer it to you without you having to download software, install an app, populate a database.  Everything is moving toward a service economy.

This is going to continue because the trend of human nature has always been toward better customer service, the less a customer has to do, the better the service.

With this in mind, comes the idea that your website's content doesn't need to be locked into a database.  It doesn't need to be something that has to be installed.  Your content can live freely as a service and can be accessed anywhere a device is needing to connect.  This means your website, your app, your business is allowed to be accessed anywhere and it's content is easily transported to wherever it needs to go.  This is huge.

APIs are now the DNA of the internet.  They connect everything from your favorite blogs to your tv to your facebook news feed to your twitter stream to everything you access on the web and any content in any smart device, period.  APIs are content.  

So here's the question: If APIs are our content platforms, why aren't we managing our content in the APIs?  Well now you can.

You can now manage the content of your website or app in Cosmic JS on a fast and secure content framework independently of any downloaded software or managed system.  

Welcome to the 21st century.  Your content is still king and it is now delivered everywhere... 

Today we are announcing a new role, Contributor, which gives you the power to collaborate on content in an entirely new way.

In an effort to make the data modeling of Metafields even easier, you can now add Metafields at the top, bottom and inline between Metafields.

In this tutorial Iā€™m going to show you how to build a user management app using Node.js and the Cosmic JS CMS API.

We're always trying to make the process of editing content easier.  We just released an update that makes editing your content in your Cosmic JS Buckets easier on the eyes.  One of the goals of the update was to make the Object edit view design look less busy. 

The Repeater Metafield allows you to group Metafields into groups with the ability to “repeat” the group.  This makes building blocks of content on a page really intuitive.
