What’s New In RapidWeaver 6

  • Five Stunning New Themes

    RapidWeaver 6 adds five beautiful 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, the Addon Manager helps you organize your addons and ensure you always have your favourites to hand.

    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. With 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.

    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 Styles allows you create a layout that all your pages follow, and that can be updated site-wide with a single click.

  • 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.
