Deploy a React News App in 3 Steps

Carson Gibbons

In this blog I will demonstrate deploying a React News App in 3 steps. This is a minimal news blog boilerplate powered by React and the Cosmic API. Pages and articles are stored remotely and displayed on the blog as needed. Install and manage your React News Blog from your Cosmic JS Bucket Dashboard. Simple. 😎  You can refer to the original tutorial below to build the app from scratch, or continue reading to simply deploy the React News Blog in 3 Steps.

Building Your Own News Blog with Cosmic JS + React

We'll be using Cosmic JS to install our example app, deploy and make content updates moving forward. Cosmic JS is an API-first Content Management Platform that allows developers to build apps in any programming language while giving content editors a familiar content editor to manage dynamic content from the cloud. If you haven't already, get started by Signing Up for Cosmic JS. 

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 React News Blog

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

Confirm Deploy Location and Branch

Now that your app is deployed to the Cosmic JS App Server, you're free to completely manage your React News Blog and all of its content from one place.
