Hello! I built the Medium Backup App to solve my own problem and help others by automatically backing up Medium blog posts for any publication. Let me know if you have any questions!

@tonyspiro curious how this works and why this is necessary given that Medium lets you export all your content at once...

@chrismessina great question! The export function in the Medium settings is great for downloading all of your posts in HTML format. But it's still a manual process and a bit limiting. The Medium Backup App allows you to set a cron to automatically backup your posts and stores more metadata like Tags and Author. Your Medium posts are stored in your Bucket for safe-keeping AND saving to Cosmic JS allows you to serve your content to any other location via the Cosmic JS API.
