Squarespace and Third-Party Clients

I recently came across this old post from Daniel Jalkut:

It came as a surprise when Squarespace 6 was released earlier this year, that support for 3rd party editors such as MarsEdit was dropped from the service. I had some cordial correspondence with staff at Squarespace, who explained that because of the laudable flexibility of the new version, it’s difficult to provide access to the content with one of the standard blogging APIs that MarsEdit uses to connect to Squarespace 5 and dozens of other services. Of course, as a developer with customers who depend on this support, I was disappointed to learn this.

This came as a surprise to me. I’ve heard countless Squarespace podcast sponsor reads that extol the service’s flexibility without mentioning what a very sweet solution it is.

Well, Squarespace pays the podcasts to praise them.

I was just about to sign up last year but the lack of MarsEdit integration killed it for me. I can't fathom why they wouldn't have that.
