Say Hello to RapidWeaver 5
RapidWeaver makes it ridiculously easy to create stunning websites on your Mac. Whether you’re building your very first website or your fiftieth, RapidWeaver provides you with the know-how to quickly publish websites to be proud of.
No matter what you want to build – be it stunning online photo-slideshows straight from your iPhoto library, a company website or your own blog – RapidWeaver lets you do it with a minimum of fuss.
RapidWeaver comes with 11 built-in page types – from blogs to sitemaps, photo albums to contact forms – so you can start work on every page in your site from the get-go. All without needing to know a line of code.
Simply choose the pages you need for your project, select a theme – customising it using the included variations – and add your content. That’s all there is to it!
Building an attractive site is simple with RapidWeaver thanks to more than 45 included themes – including six all-new themes for RapidWeaver 5 from world-renowned designers.
Changing the look and feel of your site is just a click away: you can change the theme as often as you like, and each theme offers easy customisation within RapidWeaver.
Once your RapidWeaver site is ready to go live it’s ridiculously simple to get it online. With built-in support for Apple’s MobileMe service, alongside support for FTP & SFTP uploads (used by almost every webhost around) you’ll be able to publish your site for the world to see in absolutely no time.
If you’ve already got webhosting or a MobileMe account, then your site can be online in a matter of minutes
The all-new Projects Window keeps your recently-opened projects along with handy links in one convenient place.

RapidWeaver 5 has nearly a dozen page types that can be added to your next RapidWeaver site, from blogs to photo albums.
Adding resources to your site (such as PDFs) has never been easier: just drag in resources and organise them from within the RapidWeaver sidebar.
We’ve made RapidWeaver even easier to use, with an bucketload of UI refinements in version 5. Creating websites has never been so simple!
