Stacks overview

Stacks is a new way to create pages in RapidWeaver. It's a plugin designed to combine drag-and-drop simplicity with the power of fluid layout.

Features
  • Fluid Layout: Stacks lets you build pages that flow text to the dimensions of a theme even if the theme has a variable width. You can build flowing columns, flexible rows, and tiles of images.
  • Nesting Objects: Build columns within columns within rows within columns. Or group a stack of objects inside a box. Almost anything is possible with Stacks.
  • Download More Stacks:There are hundreds of professionally designed free and low cost stacks ready for download. Easily add amazing content to your site.
  • Live Image Editing: Resize, rotate, and style your images with an easy to use HUD and see the changes happen right in the layout.
  • Pros Welcome: Because Stacks builds layout with relative positioning from a simple two-div structure, the HTML is clean and valid. Pros can use Stacks to prototype difficult layout and add their own HTML to the mix.
  • Stacks API: You can build your own components for Stacks or even publish them for others to use. The Stacks API reference covers how to build and configure a stack and even build a custom UI for the Stacks HUD.

Stacks plugin (4) by YourHead for RapidWeaver (8) by RealMac Software is a game changer for the RapidWeaver community. Stacks makes it easy for developers to code Stacks – that makes it easy for users & designers – to focus on design & creativity rather than code. It's made for Mac – offline – but with an option to build client cms sites – with third party Stacks. Best, DeFligra Mac'o'holic | Stack'oholic | Web'o'holic

STACKS helps define the methodology OF Rapidweaver.
They are nearly mutually inseparable.

Made RW my choice over Wordpress!

Dropping several "frame types" onto a page canvas. These are containers for content & what makes RW work.

Like drawing perimeters around paragraphs & images in a word processor, so that you move it as its own object on the page.

You can nest frames inside of other frames to form what would be a group in a graphic program & slide them around together as well.

You can lock any of these frames down into position to avoid accidentally moving them.

As a long time RapidWeaver user (since RapidWeaver 3) the Stacks plugin by Yourhead Software created a whole new way of designing websites – from simple websites to full blown cart solutions – created on the Mac, published on the web. With the Stacks plugin and 1000 of extensions developed for the RapidWeaver Stacks plugin you can build a website simply by dragging Stacks extensions to the RapidWeaver Stacks page. If the Stacks plugin wasn't developed I'd have chosen another tool to create websites. But with the Stacks plugin – it's simply one of (if not the) best tools for building websites on the Mac!
