RW Classic site recreation

@habitualshaker I noticed your “To celebrate the launch of RW Classic I put together a recreation of Realmac’s new RapidWeaver Classic web page” over on the RM site.

Great job on the Source recreation demo.

This will be a welcome surprise to many users. Runing the Source version and the original through PageInsights illustrates how much faster the Source version.




Thanks! Is a pretty faithful replica i think. Is quite similar actually to the Monteray replica site I did too.

To be fair the original images were pretty sizable so I did optimise them a bit before using. But would think the Source version would score a bit better regardless. Looks like it scores in the 90s for speed which is pretty decent for an image heavy page like that.

All the oversized poorly optimised and non webP images in the original site, do clobber the mobile result.

I had forgotton about that one.

Perhaps one day, someone will create a web site with a page builder that Source can’t build.


I do like the Monteray one. It uses some Limelights to open up in some of the different grid items which works really well.
