OneLiner – Resizing Text in RapidWeaver

Setting Headline sizes can be frustrating. What looks good on a large screen will often add unwanted line-breaks on mobile devices. There are a couple of stacks that allow you to set responsive sizes for different breakpoints, but again, what looks great on an iPad can look terrible on an Android tablet.

Jeroen (Marathia's Stacks) also became frustrated when formatting single lines of text for responsive sites. The result of his frustration: OneLiner.

OneLiner is a stack that allows you to set the width of a line of text to appear just as you want it on any screen. OneLiner's default setting will allow your text to fill its container width, however, it also has settings that allow you to define exactly which percentage of the container your text should fill. Example: Three single lines of text.

Marathia - OneLiner

Now if you analyse at this text, you're going to notice that the second and third lines of text are going to appear much too small on a mobile phone to be legible.
For this reason OneLiner allows you to override its' settings above, or below a set breakpoint and define a fixed text size.

Marathia - OneLinerIn this second example, I have set OneLiner to display the second line of text at 18px on mobile phones and the third line at 16px.
Instead of shrinking to fill the container width, the text now displays at a set size that is legible. Line-breaks appear within the text as soon as a word no longer fits on a line.

OneLiner also has further useful settings. Obviously, you can set h1–h6 and paragraph tags for your text, but you can also override the text formatting entirely by setting the font, font colour and alignment.

Stack settings

Tag – None (div) – (default) h1– h6
Set Custom Text Style – Bold, Italic, Underline
Align – Left, Centre, Right
Set Spacing – Letter, Word, Line
Font Family – Theme Default, Web Safe Fonts, Custom
Capitalise – Normal, All Upper Case, Initial Caps
Size Correction – Text width in %

Advanced Settings
Disable – Small Screen, Large Screen
Max Screen Width – Breakpoint
Align – Justification above/below disabled settings
Fixed Font Size – Above/Below disabled settings
Content – Custom, Site Slogan, Site Title, Site Footer

OneLiner is a cool stack that solves the frustrating problem of headline sizes elegantly and quickly.
