In this blog I’ll demonstrate installing a simple Node.js application built for avid readers to keep a list of their favorite books. Using Cosmic JS you can add books to this list and in addition, a link to purchase the book. The main page displays the current books in the list with a short description of the book. To obtain more info about the book you can click on the “More Info” button. This takes you to the page where it displays a full description of the book along with the full image and a link to purchase on Amazon.
We’ll be using Cosmic JS to install and manage our Favorite Book App’s content, data and files.
