Accessing Squarespace Blog via API

Recommended Posts


In our main (AWS hosted) site I'd like to show a summary and links to our blog articles hosted on our squarespace site.


My company provides a website where customers can explore the transcriptions of the Call Centre calls. It's a complex site, hosted in AWS, focusing on heavy data visualisation.

At times those users (call centre managers) will also be interested in the thought leadership articles we have written on the topic of managing Call Centres. To support this, in our main customer site I'd like to embed a small set of thumbnails to the blog articles on Squarespace. 

I was hoping we could do this via our main site calling the Squarespace API and retrieving a url to the article, summary text, and image.

Does an API exist in Squarespace for retrieving the blog data?

I don't think there is an API like what you describe.

Would access to the RSS feed or a JSON version of your blog help get you closer to a solution? For a JSON version of a page you can add ?format=json-pretty or ?format=json to the URL. A regular page will not return the content of the page via this format.
