Info updated on:

RapidWeaver is intended to create responsive websites with little effort on your part. In this respect, its WYSIWYG editor lets you work on your website just as you edit a standard document, without ever needing to write a single line of code. Luckily, you do not need to start from scratch since there are at least 50 built-in themes available. Besides, if you have any difficulties using this app, there is plenty of help materials, including video tutorials for most features.

As said, one of the advantages of RapidWeaver is that it allows creating responsive websites. This means that the resulting pages can be made to look exactly as planned on many different devices. In this respect, there is a device simulator that lets you preview your pages as they would appear on different models of iPhone, iPad and MacBook. Although the set of supported devices seems quite limited, it is also possible to change other screen sizes for custom devices.

In addition to themes, RapidWeaver has built-in templates for pages. This way, you can easily create photo albums, blogs, sitemaps and contact forms without much effort. Luckily, you can instantly see how your site would look like with different themes. Although this product is advertised as not needing to write a single line of code, the application does let you edit the code behind the pages directly. For this purpose, you can quickly switch from WYSIWYG to code view. more
