The Life is Good community shares one simple, unifying mission: to spread the power of optimism. In that spirit, the Life is Good tech team built a Gratitude Wall for some user-generated-thanksgiving. This widget will allow users to add “sticky notes” with their name and what they are grateful for to the gratitude board.

The Gratitude Wall is adapted from the Cosmic JS Sticky Notes App, built on React, Redux and Node.js. The Wall is currently running on Heroku and is i-framed into WordPress on its landing page. The Life is Good team also built a simple moderation application so that their team can easily approve or delete User Generated Content as it flows in. They also built client-side moderation during content entry, which checks against a banned list of words and blocks submission.

Cosmic JS provided us with a robust scaffolding to accept, store, and moderate User Generated Content and display it in a custom web app in real time. With Cosmic, we were able to develop an MVP in a matter of hours and focus our resources on UX and design versus content management. The Cosmic Support Team was extremely helpful throughout the process. We’re excited to leverage these tools again for future projects.”
