What’s New In RapidWeaver 6

  • Five Stunning New Themes

    RapidWeaver 6 adds five beautiful new themes from some of the best theme designers around: Nick Cates Design, Elixir Graphics, Brandon Lee Themes, Yuzool Themes & OneLittleDesigner.

  • Addons Manager

    With over 1,000 addons available for RapidWeaver, you’ll find the Addon Manager helps organise your most important addons. Create groups of addons for each project, and always have your favourites to hand.

  • Latest & Greatest

    RapidWeaver 6 is the fastest and most reliable release yet: built specifically for the latest OS X releases, and 64-bit to boot, allowing you to build even bigger and more-beautiful sites.

  • Supercharged Publishing

    We’ve completely re-written RapidWeaver’s publishing engine - and thanks to its smarter-than-ever multi-file upload, it’s up to 3 times faster and publishes to FTP, FTPS and SFTP servers.

  • Markdown

    Markdown allows you to just start writing, focusing on the reason people visit your site: content. There’s no need to write any code: Markdown generates the code for you, and produces beautiful HTML too.

  • 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.

  • Site-wide Code

    Adding code to individual pages has always been possible with RapidWeaver. So we took it to a new level in RapidWeaver 6 - you can add HTML, CSS, Javascript and more to every page on your site in just two clicks.

  • Full-Screen

    RapidWeaver 6 has been built with Full Screen in mind: the single-window design helps you focus on your website with everything in one place ready for your use.

  • Responsive Preview

    The 5 stunning new themes in RapidWeaver are all responsive, and to help you imagine your site at different sizes you can now resize the preview area to any width you like. There’s even handy presets for iPhone and iPad widths.

  • Master Styles

    RapidWeaver 6 features a whole host of features designed to easily lay out your entire site. Master Style allows you create a layout that all your pages follow. Need to hide the sidebar? One click removes it from all your pages.

  • Example Sites

    When it comes to building your site, you can start with a new project, or take one of the five example sites included in the app. They’re all responsive and showcase the newest themes included with RapidWeaver.

  • Community

    There’s over 1,000 addons available for RapidWeaver, and there’s a brand-new way to discover them with the Community site. Find your favourite addons, discover amazing new ones, and leave reviews to help others find the best out there.

RapidWeaver 6 will be a paid upgrade, available both directly from us and from the Mac App Store.
