From the developer: “This is possibly one of my favourite fun new features in RapidWeaver.”


RapidWeaver Features

Build anything
Build a blog, a portfolio, a website for your new business or even an online store. Anything is possible.

No Code Required
Don’t know HTML? Don’t worry. You can build an entire site without writing a single line of code.

Theme Based
RapidWaver is theme based meaning you can have a great looking site up and running in minutes.

Smart Publishing
Publishing your site has never been easier: RapidWeaver cleverly only uploads files that have changed.

Browser Compatible
All the code that RapidWeaver publishes looks great in your favourite browsers – even Internet Explorer.

SEO Optimised
RapidWeaver generates code that search engines love, and makes sure search engines know about your website.

Mix Code & Rich Text
Your content lives happily alongside any HTML code you need to use. Just paste in the code and you’re good to go.

Extend with Addons
With almost 1,000 addons available for RapidWeaver, including everything from responsive themes, to CMS and eCommerce solutions. there’s literally nothing you can’t do with RapidWeaver!

Responsive Preview
The new themes in RapidWeaver are all responsive, and to help you imagine your site at different sizes you can resize the preview area to any width you like. There’s even handy presets for iPhone and iPad widths.

Re-usable Snippets
The snippets window lets you save frequently-used pieces of code and easily re-use them on multiple projects.

Versions & Autosave
Ever found yourself needing to quickly revert a change to your website? Thanks to Versions and Autosave, it’s never been easier. For the first time, RapidWeaver allows you to browse versions of your projects.

Theme and Plugin SDKs
Developers rejoice: we publish our SDKs on GitHub so you too can build incredible addons for RapidWeaver.

Free Training Videos & Podcast
We publish free training videos and a weekly yo help you make the best websites possible.


What’s New in RapidWeaver 7?

Overhauled FTP Engine
Super fast, super reliable FTP Engine (No, really it is this time!)

FTP Path Browser
You can now visually browser your FTP server to pick a location to publish too!

Built-in Web Server
Allows you to preview your entire site locally in a browser without having to export it

SEO Health Check
RapidWeaver will analyse your site and will highlight steps you can take to improve SEO.

Banner Images
In themes that support this new feature, you can now add a custom banner image to your site, and customise it on each page. Themes that support this feature also include optimal image dimensions to help you size images.

4 Responsive New Themes
Designed by Realmac, Elixir Graphics, MultiThemes, and Yuzool!

New, modern OS X sidebar
With translucency, that shows all your pages, resources and settings in one location.

Portable Documents
You can now choose to store resources inside your RapidWeaver document, enabling you to take the project between multiple Macs.

Multiple Publishing Locations
If you need to publish projects to multiple locations, you can set these up in your project, and choose the server when publishing. RapidWeaver’s smart publishing will also keep track of changes across multiple publishing locations.

Local Publishing
The “Export” feature is something we’ve always felt should be considered a way of publishing your site, and now it is!

Project Backup
RapidWeaver can optionally create a ZIP file of your project, and upload it to your server when publishing. The file is added to a “secret” location on your server, meaning that while it is downloadable by anyone who knows the cryptic web address, it’s tricky to guess that web address.

User-selectable Addons Folder
Need to save your addons in a custom location? RapidWeaver 7 allows you to do this, and will move your addons for you! Great if you’re working between machines.

Minified Javascript and CSS
RapidWeaver can now optimise your CSS and Javascript by minifying it. Previously, RapidWeaver would remove some whitespace, but this time we’re actually optimising it to be as quick to download and apply to your pages as possible.
