I agree - Stacks changed the way I do everything in Rapidweaver and I’ve been looking forward to this update for a long time.
I’m blown away by the added features this has - and Partials alone is a game changer for my work flow.
I also love the clean lines and overall design
Stacks 3 is an incredible update. Isaiah obviously spent a lot of time considering the user’s experience and interaction with the plugin. It offers so many options for customizing the UI, and for organizing our ever-growing stacks library.
It goes without saying that the Partials feature is killer – it’s a huge time saver that will certainly become part of most user’s workflows. Check out Isaiah’s video on Partials if you don’t know what that’s all about. I’ve also put together a 15-minute video of the new features in Stacks 3 for anyone who is interested: http://rapidweaverclassroom.com/rapidweaver-video-tutorials/free-stacks-tutorial/ – a 2+ hour series of in-depth training will be posted to RapidWeaver Classroom in the coming days.
Thank you Isaiah for the hours/days/weeks/months that you poured into this update! Fellow Weavers, if there is any reason you are not already using Stacks, now is the time to start!
It’s called Reason by Nick Cates. It’s a nice one. Very simple. It’s one of the built in themes. I think I just selected a few colors to make it show up nice in the video – but nothing custom was used and there is no extra CSS or anything – everything straight from the tin.
@oscar : This is one of those rare times I get to use that famous developer phrase, “That’s a feature not a bug,” and really mean it!
Previews are great. And a lot of people love them. But saving previews can be very very very slow – especially for complex projects. This is why both Stacks and RapidWeaver now come with options to disable previews.
We decided to turn it off by default (at least for a while). We wanted to people to experience how fast Stacks 3 can be and then make the choice to enable that feature with open eyes.
