Web development

Recommended Posts

I am admittedly new to Squarespace. But I want to start off with the right perspective. It seems to me there is a disconnect between "software development" and designer sites using a template like Squarespace. I develop web sites where terms like page load time, software maintenance, and scalability seem to be the topics of discussion. Everyone (developers) has an opinion on the best framework (like Angular) or library (like React) is best to build a web application with. So these web applications are easily maintained and very responsive but unless some work is put into the look and feel these sites "look" like they were developed by a developer. They don't have the same UX design put into them that the templates shown when putting together a site with Squarespace. A developer is very used to writing JavaScript handlers for various HTML events, but I am not familiar with a similar functionality for a site developed with Squarespce. Would someone be able to point me in the direction of coming at Squarespace from a developer's perspective? I see in "Getting Started" that one can clone the basic template. But how can I get hold of the "source" for a custom template that was modified with the Squarespace tools? Thank you for taking the time for this very basic beginner question.

Using templates is common today, but most companies want a unique site that no one else has. That's why you can't use a template. Also, when you create software, you need to adapt to the customer's individual needs. Recently, our company turned to exposit.com for help; these guys integrated computer vision into our work, so now we quickly get all the necessary statistics. Information is the most valuable resource, so the sooner you get the information, the better.
