Squarespace has a bunch of small nice-to-haves that make it a pleasure to use, like automatically getting a screengrab when adding a video so that the site doesn't load the whole video before the user has clicked on it, or a sign-up process that's sane among other things. 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

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
