Press Room

Paris, May 30, 2008 — Benoît Widemann is pleased to announce the immediate availability of RapidScript 1.2. RapidScript is a plugin for RapidWeaver that builds web pages using AppleScript. Using RapidScript, you can build pages containing data from other scriptable applications, such as the Finder, Address Book, iTunes, TextEdit, Pages, FileMaker, Excel... The script extracts the data and shape it for the web by turning it to HTML. RapidScript then builds the page within RapidWeaver, with full respect of the site's theme and CSS.

Version 1.2 is fully compatible with RapidWeaver 4. This update is free for registered users of previous version.
