Building stacks for Rapidweaver ...

blank

If it was always your dream to build your own stack, then you probably already downloaded Will Woodgate's Blank stack from Stacks4Stacks. It is, as the name states, an empty stack containing a single line of HTML. Will's blog has a detailed entry, explaining just how to build a stack. The majority of Rapidweaver users suffer from codephobia, so there probably aren't so many home-baked stacks floating around.

builder

Will's latest stack takes advantage of the new 'User Stacks' addition that was added to Stacks 2.5. Builder is a blank stack that is placed on your Rapidweaver page and allows you build your own stack elements with code snippets from sources like CodeCanyon, Bootstrap, CSS Tricks, StackOverflow or JS-Fiddle; comprising of HTML, CSS and Javascript markup. These self-built stacks can then be duplicated on a page. Alternatively you can save these Builder stacks as User Stacks, for quick use on other pages or projects.

The difference between the two stacks? With Blank complete stacks are created outside of Rapidweaver and, theoretically can be distributed to other users, once completed. 
Builder stack elements, however are created directly on a Rapidweaver page. An image slider for instance would, when finished, contain the links to all of the images to be displayed. Once the stack is saved as a User Stack, it contains those exact same images and is un-editable.
If you wish to duplicate the results whilst preserving the editable format, you need to save the Rapidweaver page. Not exactly ideal for distribution.

Both stacks are free of charge (a donation is always welcome) bringing the count of free stacks on Will's page up to 38!
