Writer for RapidWeaver. Make Headlines.

Celebrate website clarity! Tell the world, with search friendly giant headlines, immersive backgrounds, accessible site navigation, and contact info that's easy to find - on every page!

A text first approach might sound simple, but many websites do suffer from a lack of clarity. Writer keeps key site elements isolated, easy to find, and uniquely engaging. With zero setup time, your new blog can look this good, straight out of the box!

A clear and beautiful message is a great start, but Writer’s responsive tools and style options complete the package. Each page can feature its own unique headline, background image, color gradient overlay, and much more. Explore this demo site for inspiration. This demo site also available for download as a RapidWeaver project file.

Styled Text

The Styled Text page type is the most widely-used RapidWeaver plugin. Styled Text pages allow you to easily stylise content such as text, images and movies without requiring any knowledge of HTML.


The Markdown plugin, introduced in RapidWeaver 6, allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, called Markdown. Markdown is converted flawlessly to HTML when your project is published.Continue Reading
