What does the JS in Cosmic JS Stand For?

Diving In

Cosmic JS is a cloud-hosted content platform that makes it easy to add dynamic content to any website or app. Cosmic JS solves a real problem in the content space today. A wide rift between people and easy content management has been created by the many devices and platforms for content consumption. Cosmic JS solves this problem by allowing a user to manage content for multiple websites and apps in one place and makes the content available everywhere in any programming language, whether it’s PHP, Ruby, Swift for iOS, JAVA for Android or web client-side applications. Cosmic JS provides a structured API that works for any programming language or device.

What’s With the “JS”?

The JS in Cosmic JS comes from the fact that Cosmic JS converts content into JavaScript Objects (JSON) making it available through the advanced Cosmic JS API. Think of JSON objects as the DNA that brings life to your web and native applications. This allows for content consumption to any phone, desktop, web or native application, which allows for faster development cycles and faster content management saving time and money.

What’s in The Cosmic Stack?

Since we have seen enormous benefits by removing the installed CMS, we decided to remove web hosting as well. Now your application stack only needs the Cosmic JS CMS API and a code repository. What was once a mess of connections between various applications and servers is now boiled down to simply:

1. GitHub repo
2. Cosmic JS CMS API
3. Cosmic app server

For Developers

Developer tools and features are offered as valuable time-savers during the development process. It’s easier than ever to manage your project from the first line of code, to content population, to launch day. Review: Getting Started.

For Content Editors

Add rich text, drag and drop media and upload video. Set roles and permissions for easy content collaboration within your team. Content management is faster, easier and keeps the project on track. Review: Cosmic JS Features.
