Introducing Ivy 2 for RapidWeaver and Stacks v3

When I originally developed the Ivy stack I worked to make the stack as user friendly as possible and included a wide variety of ways to customize the stack to each user's liking. One major thing though alluded me during development -- a way to allow users to rearrange elements within the stack. There just wasn't a good way at the time to build this feature into the stack using Stacks v2.

With the release of Stacks v3 though the API for the plugin got a major update and opened up new doors for stacks developers. The new API update now made it possible to provide the flexibility I'd originally hoped for in the Ivy stack.

I started out with the goal of building a stack that would compliment and expand the usability of the Bloom stack when I began building the Capsule stack. Quickly though I saw that Capsule would be a big help to users whether they were using Bloom or not.

Introducing the Bloom stack for RapidWeaver

When I was building out a small portfolio site last year I came across several different styles of portfolio designs. The code I used to create the sliders on my portfolio page eventually got put to use in stack-form as the Orbit stack.

But there was another design I really liked that I thought could be something fun, and unique for RapidWeaver users. I'd like to introduce you now to that delightful little design, which I call the the Bloom stack.
