Every Day Free – But Never Cheap!

Another RapidWeaver blog

Yes, it's true: one more blog about our favorite web site building application for MacOS. 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 expand this little blog!
no, not this way…

New #60 & 61: HTML(5)elements and Keyhole Stacks

As mentioned two weeks ago with the introduction of the DoNotPublish Stack, I finally found the time to turn a few stacks I made for myself into ‘real’ stacks (with auto-update, proper icons, etc.), and I feel comfortable now sharing them with you. Today I introduce two more I initially made for myself and use a lot when making sites and developing stacks.!--more-->

The HTML(5)elements Stack allows you to wrap other stacks in a HTML element and optionally add attributes. If you don’t know what that means: please move along, nothing to see here for you :) But if you ever do manual coding on a RapidWeaver page, you’ll understand how useful that can be.
The most common elements (including a simple div and noscript) and attributes are predefined in the stack, but there’s also the option to use your own, making this stack very versatile. The output of your settings is shown in the info pane of the stack, so no need to switch to source view to check what you’ve done!

For more information (including about some advanced options for those who feel adventurous), and demos, please visit the product page.

The Keyhole Stack is another stack for those who are code orientated! If you ever wanted a quick view at the code the stacks on the page generate, this stack is for you. I use it a lot when developing my stacks to quickly inspect the result of the code I’m writing.
The Keyhole Stack will show the CSS, JavaScript or PHP in Preview mode, but not in Edit mode, not in a browser when choosing File > Preview in… and not when you export or publish the page.

More information (but no demo for this one!) on the product page.

Both stacks are pay-what-you-want, so you can decide yourself how much these stacks are worth to you. When you downloaded them for free and use them in a commercial project, a small donation will be appreciated.
