Build anything from a small personal site, to an online commerce store. RapidWeaver for Mac is powerful enough to grow with you. Why be reliant on someone else to build or update your site? RapidWeaver puts you back in control.
Just because you never learned a lick of code doesn't mean you need to spend a small fortune to have a website built. RapidWeaver 8 gives you the tools you need to publish a beautiful site—no programming, design, or server experience required.
Getting started is as simple as picking one of RapidWeaver's elegant website themes (like Artful or Engineer). You'll edit page content using standard rich text or Markdown formatting; to add images, drag and drop from Finder, or use the app's media browser to import from your Photos library or the stock-photo service Unsplash.
Need a contact page or photo gallery? Click Add and choose it from the menu. RapidWeaver automatically builds navigation links to the new page throughout your site.
RapidWeaver's Simulate mode lets you preview as you edit, so you can see how it will look on various screens, including a range of Mac, iPhone, and iPads. (You can even flip iOS previews to landscape orientation.) And the Health Check feature ensures you haven't missed any details, such as page titles or "alt" image tags that make your site more accessible.
Need more options? RapidWeaver Addons—created by third-party developers let you enhance your site with e-commerce features, analytics, individual logins, additional layout options, and much more. You'' find over 1,000 of these in the official community library.
And once your site is finished, you won't even need to bother with a file transfer app. Rapidweaver automatically uploads all the necessary files to your web host and keeps them in perfect sync whenever you make changes.
Tired of complicated online website builders that force you into a monthly subscriptions? If yes, then RapidWeaver is for you!
