Too Long; Didn't Read

In this blog I will demonstrate deploying a Node.js Band Website in 3 steps. This Express app lets you store information about your band, your band’s tour dates, and your band’s photos in Cosmic JS and present them to your fans in the form of a traditional band site. This website has been built as an Express app and integrates with MailChimp to handle email signups. All of its data is served entirely from Cosmic JS. It will be deployed through Cosmic as well. You can refer to the original tutorial below if you’d like to see how the app was built from scratch, or keep reading to simply deploy the Node.js Band Website in 3 easy steps.

I’ll be using Cosmic JS for this example blog. Cosmic JS is an API-first CMS that makes managing and building websites and applications faster and more intuitive. By decoupling content from code, Cosmic JS empowers developer flexibility while ensuring content editors can plan and deploy content as it best suits them. Cosmic JS lets developers use the tools they love, like Node.js, GitHub, Docker and more. We’ll be using Cosmic JS to install our example app, deploy and make content updates moving forward from the cloud-based Content Management Platform.

1. Create a New Bucket

Your bucket’s name is the name of your website, project, client or web application that you are building.

2. Install the Node.js Band Website

Cosmic JS gives you the ability to filter between programming languages such as Node.js, Vue.js, React, AngularJS and more.

3. Deploy to Web

I clicked “Deploy to Web”. I can then edit Objects while my web application is deploying. You will receive an email confirming the deployment of your web application. If you encounter any issues during deployment, you may be routed to the Cosmic JS Troubleshooting Page.

Now that your app is deployed to the Cosmic JS App Server, you’re free to completely manage your Node.js Band Website and all of its content from one place.

Cosmic JS is an API-first cloud-based content management platform that makes it easy to manage applications and content. If you have questions about the Cosmic JS API, please reach out to the founders on Twitter or Slack.
