So the app we were discussing that Isaiah might like to consider after the current focus on Stacks4 has come to fruition, might work in the following way:
The app very likely would not work with all stacks, and if the initial focus was on single stacks with no other dependancies, that could function, when added on their own, into a blank theme and produced the expected html result. These type of stacks would be the type that would fit such an app. If the app can grow in capability then that’s a bonus.
Type of stacks that come to mind are forms, sliders, image effects, buttons, text effects, background gradient stacks and many more I expect.
The app would need to show the Stacks edit window and side panel and show the normal edit display of changing a setting. A preview that takes you to a Safari window that shows the “previewed” stack in a bare html page, would be all that is needed to check the result. An export function could save the files in a directory.
I think that such a basic feature set would have value and potentially extend stacks created for RW Stacks, to be used by users and ex RW users, of other web creations tools. I expect some stacks developers will throw some toys on the floor over such an app, but it sounds like win win win to me.
Of course I have the luxury of knowing nothing whatsoever about what goes on in Stacks under the hood, so I may be talking total bollocks. I would jump as such an app.
