Wix has an addon store, called the App Market, that includes community developed bits of functionality (such as comments, calendars and integrations with third-party services) that you can add to your site. The store includes both free and paid addons. See More
There's a selection of elements you can choose from in the sidebar that you can drag and drop into the page and edit. There are common elements such as text, images and buttons as well as less common elements such as blog or online store. All elements can be adjusted to some extent to fit your needs. For example, you can change things like the font, weight and style of text and even crop, adjust colors and apply filters to images. See More
As Medium encourages long-form writing they've re-imagined how comments should work accordingly. You can leave comments for every paragraph separately, so you don't have to reference a specific part in a comments section at the bottom. Technically, the feature is called "notes." See More
Hexo has a relatively large following and community, especially in China. While this is certainly a positive, many developers who do not know chinese would be unable to follow all the guides and tutorials out there written by their chineses counterparts. See More
Hexo built sites can be easily deployed to Github pages, Heroku, Openshift (custom cartridge needs to be setup) or any other custom solution (just copy over thepublic folder). Any deployment is as simple as editing the _config.yml file and running the hexo deploycommand See More
Sadly the authorization system is fairly limited. Co authors can post and publish, without you getting a chance to pre-check their posts as an admin. e.g. you can't give them "create" and not give them "publish" permissions. They can only edit their own posts however. See More
Despite some community support of having it removed, Ghost still prominently uses the following phrase in the UI: "Display a sexy logo for your publication." This terminology can be considered exclusionary and even inappropriate in a professional environment. See More
Because metalsmith is at its core focused on transforming directories of files, it can be used for more than just static site generation, and could be used as a build tool, a documentation generator, or any use that requires file transformations. See More
According to the spec on API chaining, the API request/response need to associate an API object to an corresponding controller/action/uri to be able to validate and handle the request/response and the datasets. Without that, the consuming client service cannot properly validate or relate the datasets from one to the other. Links have no relational value and the api object creates the relationship between the datasets while maintaining an api/dataset relationship with the corresponding controller/action/uri As such, the current methodology supported would not be able to be called by the client not supported by the client in a RESTFUL manner See More
