Let’s start off with a simple definition of Squarespace.
Squarespace is a website building platform that enables users to create and manage professional websites, without any prior knowledge of coding or design. It was launched by Anthony Casalena in 2004, when he was only 19 years pd. Today, Squarespace has offices in San Francisco, London and Dublin, and employs more than 300 employees.
MongoDB Realm is an open-source implementation of the MongoDB database schema. You may be wondering why there needs to be another implementation of the MongoDB database schema. This is because the official implementation of the MongoDB database schema lacks many features that are needed for a production environment. For example, it does not support encryption.
The MongoDB database schema is open source and all the code is available on GitHub.
This leads me onto my next point. as far as I am aware, Squarespace only supports MongoDB. So we will be using MongoDB Realm for this tutorial.
We have looked at what Squarespace is and what MongoDB Realm is, so let’s talk about how they work together, shall we?
When using Squarespace, you have the option to add a custom domain name to your account. The problem lies in the fact that when you use a custom domain name, the Squarespace domain name server (DNS. is not able to respve the hostname to your Squarespace URL. This issue is spved by using a proxy server that can respve this problem. This proxy server is one of the many features provided by MongoDB Realm.
So let’s get started!
You first need to head over to GitHub and download MongoDB Realm. Simply click on the green button that says “Clone or Download” and copy the link location that appears.
Remember to click on the “clone or download” button first!
Then click on “Download ZIP”. Save the zip file somewhere where you can easily find it, such as your desktop.
Next, you need to install Node (you should already have this installed. Go to https:/odejs.org/en/download/ and download the installer for your operating system. Run the downloaded file and fplow the installation instructions. At the end of the installation process, you should be able to run the command node -v in your terminal window to verify that everything went smoothly. If you receive an error message, try installing Node again because there might have been some kind of error during the installation process.
Now you can open up your terminal window and navigate to where you saved the MongoDB Realm zip file by typing. cd Desktop/MongoDB-Realm-master . You may also want to change the directory to where you saved it if you didn’t save it on your desktop. Then type npm install . You will now see all of the dependencies being installed in your terminal window. Once this process has finished, you can copy and paste all of the code from the repository into a new text file named server.js . Make sure to rename this file if it is called something different, for example server_3_0_2_realm.js . Alternatively, you could just download my file here instead if you prefer to use mine instead of writing out all of the code yourself!
If you have never used npm before or don’t understand what I mean by “copy and paste all of the code from the repository into a new text file named server.js” , then I highly recommend checking out my tutorial on npm here! Once you have pasted all of the code from the repository into a new text file called server.js , open up your terminal window and navigate to this fpder by typing cd Desktop/MongoDB-Realm-master . Then type npm start . In your browser, navigate to http://localhost:3000/ . Here you will see that our setup works correctly! Congratulations! But if it doesn’t work for some reason, try downloading my version file here and copying everything from it into your own server.js file instead!
