Our designer loves squarespace, because he can just build the site in their authoring engine.

We like that Square makes the site properly responsive for mobile/tablet use.

We are happy our designer is happy... but normally we use raw css / html, kept in a version control system.

Square does not appear to support versioning.

Is there a tool chain that gives us the designer-friendliness of square, with the versioning (and poss self hosting) we want from an ops perspective?

Right at the bottom of the features page you will find:


So you can use git to version and manage your code, for offline/local self-hosting you will have to contact the sales team.

Disclaimer: I have no connection with Square or any of their associated companies.

  • Interesting, thanks! We asked their support this question a number of times and did not find this feature area to be actually useful in real life. Let me look into it further. Jul 6, 2015 at 18:39
  • @samsmith Mention to their support line that if there is not full git integration that lets you "work with a team and roll back changes easily" then ask how many of their customers reside or trade in countries with legislation regarding false representation - you will either find the support team quickly putting you in touch with someone who knows what they are talking about or that section disappearing from the website.

  • help.squarespace.com/guides/squarespace-developer-platform-faq may be a good starting point for more information. So is developers.squarespace.com/initial-setup Jul 6, 2015 at 19:11
