We’re excited to announce the public beta for our new developer platform. The platform is easily one of the most advanced parts of the new Squarespace system, enabling you to create any kind of website. Having seen internal use for over a year, it is the most tried-and-true component of Squarespace 6, powering our own site and every one of our templates.
Git/SFTP. Every template is a Git repository. Version control comes standard. Connect to template files via Git or SFTP.
Developer Tools. LESS Preprocessing, JSON Templating, Script Comboing, Retina-ready Responsive Image Handling, and more.
Free. Developer accounts never expire while in development. Take as much time as you need before launching your site, and pay nothing until you do. Then pay as little as $16/mo. when you go live.
Some examples of sites that have already been built using the Squarespace developer platform. These sites are launched and in production.
We will be sending out developer notifications (feature updates, bug fixes, etc.) via mailing list.
We have set up a Question/Answer forum at http://answers.squarespace.com/ that you can use to submit technical questions. These questions will be answered by the community, or an engineer from Squarespace.
