Building Squarespace 6

Building Squarespace 6

In 2005, the first version of Squarespace was launched. By 2012, web technologies like CSS and JavaScript had evolved dramatically. We could finally create a rich, beautiful application and power quality websites that met our high standards with the award-winning, modernized version 6.

Reimagining templates

Reimagining templates

Dozens of themes with hundreds of styling options existed, all based on a single wireframe. This made customization limiting for many customers, and sloppy for developers. With the development of Squarespace 6, we rebuilt the template system from scratch, integrated seamless inline editing, and added developer mode for full access via Git.
