What are Addons?
Power up your web building experience with addons
RapidWeaver Classic is a very expandable and flexible piece of software. It supports many types of addons to allow you to build anything from a personal website to a complex online store.
This is an umbrella term used to refer to any third-party or official extras you add on to RapidWeaver. Addons include things like plug-ins, but also extras like themes, snippets, and styles.
Plug-in: This is an add-on that changes the way RapidWeaver works by adding binary code. Plug-ins can fundamentally alter the way RapidWeaver operates (like PlusKit) but usually just add another page type (like a Blog or Photo Album) when you click the + Add button.
Snippet files can be sections of code or blocks of written content, you can even use them for general notes. Snippets are app-wide and specific to a Project file. To reveal and share a Snippet you can right-click on it in the Snippets window and select "Reveal Snippet" from the menu.
Theme styles are a way to globally or on a per-page basis change the way a theme looks. Styles often override colours, fonts, or layouts.
