Foundation for Rapidweaver ...


You may (or may not) have heard of Foundation. Until a few weeks ago, I hadn't.
I'd heard of Bootstrap and that's about all.

Like Bootstrap, Foundation is a responsive front-end for website programming.
It is, however, the world's most advanced front-end framework and with its  mobile first philosophyFoundation brings faster websites to all your visitor's devices.

Joe Workman has invested five months of programming to bring Foundation to Rapidweaver. And he has managed to pack the whole front-end into a set of stacks - at last count 71 in all. This is an amazing feat.

Foundation for RapidWeaver uses the latest technologies to sky rocket your site into the modern era. Not to mention that it's built for speed! It's so fast that it leaves IE8 in the dust.

I, personally, have been testing the software for around five weeks now and like what I see. The resulting websites are compact and load with amazing speed. And NO, the resulting websites are not compatible with IE8! It's time to break with ancient technology — or do you still use SCSI-drives too?

So what is the difference between Foundation and Freestack responsive, you might ask ...
With Foundation, you can build for small devices first. Then, as devices get larger and larger, layer in more complexity for a complete responsive design. You can customise your build to include or remove certain elements, as well as define the size of columns, colours, font size and more.

I love FS R, I really do, I built a number of sites with Blueball's solution - in fact, I actually went and re-built most of my sites, as soon as I saw the flexibility it offered. Foundation offers much, much more, though.

Charlie Lockhart was pretty pissed off, when he heard that Joe was programming on Foundation. To be honest, I was too - it sounded as if it would be a total rip-off of FS R.
I'm sorry, Charlie, Foundation is so much more.

For a complete overview of Foundations capabilities, I suggest you visit Foundation's own overview page and see for yourself, just what is possible.
Chapeau! Hats off to Joe, he's done an amazing job ...

If you are a serious Rapidweaver, I assure you that Foundation will be worth its weight in gold ...
... and I have some websites to re-build.

Edit: FYI. I just rebuilt this site with Foundation and am rather pleased with it.
