New way to create pages in RapidWeaver.

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.

What's new in Stacks

  • Stacks no longer modifies the web preference user defaults

Just when you thought Stacks couldn't get any better - it did - this latest version is a big one! Stacks is a MUST for ALL RapidWeaver users - it adds steroids, afterburners, AND nitrous-oxide to RapidWeaver when combined with any of the almost 200 Stacks plugins available from the small army of highly talented independent developers. Note, many of these Stacks plugins are FREE while others can be obtained immediately through online purchase from the various developers for a small cost. If in doubt about the power of Stacks, go to YourHead's website and be prepared to be dazzled.

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!

To an extremely large extent t Stacks IS RapidWeaver. RW itself becomes simply a vehicle to deliver Stacks and the RW team would do well to recognise that fact and weld the two together - having said that however buying enough individual Stacks to give a decently productive program can run into the hundreds of $'s. The 5 star rating is for Stacks not RapidWeaver 'carrier'.

I was wondering about that. Stacks looks very useful and seems to provide the functionality my client is asking for. When you say that the five stars is not for RW do you mean there is some problem with Rapidweaver?

Without Stacks, Rapidweaver is like a girly bike. With Stacks, Rapidweaver is a Super bike. :) For if you did not get the messages: If you buy Rapidweaver you HAVE to buy Stacks too. It makes creating good website a breeze.

Good line & funny. Accurate. One should bundle Stacks with RW.
This changes the cost basis for the core RW application.

Alternatives are tools like Foundation & Foundry, which *might* get you around Stacks, but at higher price.

As of this writing: (unles I am making YUGE mistakes in understanding) Stacks has one really nice feaure with respect to Retina displays -- you can generate your images at double or triple resolution, but fit them to the page nicely, allowing a sort of “quicklook” litebox effect to pull them up larger when viewed on Apple products & decent zooming on other devices.

That won't work in your non-Stacks add-ons.
