Every Day Free – But Never Cheap!
Exclusively for RapidWeaver users • only free and low-cost stuff

Another RapidWeaver blog

Yes, it's true: one more blog about our favorite web site building application for MacOSX. But this one is a little different. It started back in 2011 as a blog focusing solely on free and low-cost stuff for (producing a web site with) RapidWeaver: themes, tools, tips, tricks, anything, as long as it was free – or low-cost.
    Over time, the Stacks plugin became more popular, and coding yourself was no longer an option for many people, so I started to develop my own stacks in the spirit of the blog: free (well, actually pay-what-you-want) and low-cost.
    This blog evolved with it, and is now primarily about those new stacks, although from time to time I will post about other free and low-cost stuff for RapidWeaver.

Do you know something free (or low-cost) & useful related to RapidWeaver not mentioned here? Have a suggestion for a subject to write about here or for a new stack?
Tips, questions and remarks are always welcomed.
Just and help to expand this little blog!

New #79: Truncator Stack

While working on my new BigLink Stack, I realised that it would be really nice to have the possibility to have a fixed number of lines inside it, truncate the text that wouldn’t fit and end with an ellipsis (…), regardless the actual width of its container.

That turned out to be easier said than done, but in the end I found an acceptable solution which became the stack I introduce today: the Truncator Stack. Text inside this stack will be truncated and an ellipsis (…) will be added to the end if it needs more lines than the number of lines set in this stack.

Although the Truncator Stack does not have many options (and it never will — don’t bother asking for it), it does what it can very well. It works great on its own, but also inside other stacks like the BigLink Stack.

The possibilities however are limited. You cannot use any code, special characters (like  ) or even line breaks inside this stack; only plain text. Nevertheless, I think this stack can be really useful. Because of its serious limitations, I decided to make this stack free, but especially when you use it in a commercial project, a small donation is appreciated.

Please visit the product page for more information, the possibilities, the limitations and lots of examples.
