Retrieve and display data from Salesforce


Question

I am looking for tips/documentation for connecting to a remote service - in this case, Salesforce - in order to retrieve/render data.

My assumptions are that:

- I would be building a plugin
- I'd need a remote service I can proxy requests through, from my plugin, which would handle the interaction with Salesforce
- My requests from Squarespace would be JavaScript-based

I don't see documentation for plugin development at https://developers.squarespace.com/. Where can I find resources to guide me?

In the case of the last two questions, can I assume that JavaScript is my primary tool, and that Squarespace will not be a substitute for the traditional web server environment I'm accustomed to (apache, php)?

You are right about server enviroment, squarespace did not offer this, so you will need to connect javascript into a cloudbase service to read saleforce data in order to protect your saleforce api token from compromised

Google Spreadsheet may be a good solution
