Happy Independence Weekend


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...

We have a mission to help every digital team be more efficient by providing a simple API to power content for their website or application.  And this milestone provides some validation for that goal.  We are grateful to all our users who are joining us on this journey.

In this tutorial, we are going to be creating a simple inventory management application with Laravel and Vue.js as our frontend.

At Cosmic JS our mission is to help teams build websites and apps faster and easier.  Today, we’re happy to announce an exciting milestone: we have passed 1,000,000 API requests.  This comes shortly after announcing our 500,000th API request last month.  This means that over 1 Million times someone has used Cosmic JS to view a web page, create a static website build, send a chat message, vote for their preferred presidential candidate or view a blog post using an iOS or Android device.

It's now easier to get started using Cosmic JS as your content platform.  After signing in, click "Add new bucket" and you will see that you now have the option to install a starter bucket.  

After you click "Install", your starter bucket will be imported to a new bucket and your app zip file will be downloaded to your machine.  At that point you can extract the files and configure your new app to connect to your new Cosmic JS bucket.  

This is meant to help familiarize you with how to set up your bucket to best manage content for your websites and apps.  Sign in and enjoy!

Happy Presidents Day (or Not My Presidents Day for some)!  We've just added a new feature that makes it easier to find Objects in your Bucket.

We are excited to announce that you can now use all of the Cosmic JS features in a full demo before signing up for an official Cosmic JS account.
