Squarespace is a great platform for people that do not know how to code websites, or they simply are not interested in learning. The user interface is intuitive and user friendly. Many small businesses and entreprenuers don’t have the time to design and develop a website for their business, but they want to have control over their content.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Squarespace is a SaaS-based content management system (CMS) which is composed of a website builder, blogging platform and hosting service. The service allows individuals and businesses to create and maintain websites and blogs. One of the biggest selling points for these companies is the potential to reduce IT support costs by outsourcing hardware and software maintenance and support to the SaaS provider. The Cloud (or SaaS) model has no physical need for indirect distribution since it is not distributed physically and is deployed almost instantaneously.
Some Examples of Drag and Drop
A common example is dragging an icon on a virtual desktop to a special trashcan icon to delete a file.
Further examples include:
- Dragging a data file onto a program icon or window for viewing or processing. For instance, dropping an icon that represents a text file into a Microsoft Word window signifies “Open this document as a new document in Word”
- Moving or copying files to a new location/directory/folder,
- Adding objects to a list of objects to be processed,
- Rearranging widgets in a graphical user interface to customize their layout,
- Dragging an attribute onto an object to which the command is to be applied,
- e.g. dragging a color onto a graphical object to change its color,
- Dragging a tool to a canvas location to apply the tool at that location,
- Creating a hyperlink from one location or word to another location or document.
- Most word processors allow dragging selected text from one point to another.
- Dragging a series of codeblocks such as in Blender for designing shaders and materials.
