Flex – A New Accordion For RapidWeaver

Weavium's collection of stacks is rapidly expanding. The latest Weavium stack, Flex, is a new take on an old theme – Expanding content in RapidWeaver.

There are a dozen stacks available for RapidWeaver that will expand their content. Some are themed, many can be fairly freely customised and now there is Flex, a stack that many Weavers will find interesting due to its configurability, or should I say Flexibility? Flex is quote: "expandable content, like you've never seen it before".

When you hover over a Flex drawer, its height expands to indicate that is ready to be clicked. When you click, the header shrinks again, changes colour and the drawer opens to display its content. The Flex drawers may be formatted collectively, or individually – the choice is yours. The collective formatting overrides the individual formatting.
You have a wide choice of fonts and icons for the drawer's title and there is an optional button with a neat animated slide effect to open, or close all of the drawers at once.

Flex – Weavium
Stack settings
Open All On Start – Deactivated by default
Collapse Siblings – Active by default – when a drawer is clicked the previous drawer closes.
Max Width – px
Breakpoints – Tablet, Mobile
Header Padding – Vertical, Horizontal
Content Padding – Vertical, Horizontal
Title – Desktop, Tablet, Mobile – px
Icon – D, T, M –px
Dropdown Icon – D, T, M – px
Container Text – D, T, M – px
Header Font – 16 optional web fonts, plus custom
Content Font – Dito
All Caps Headers – deactivated by default

There now follows a long list of colour (including gradients and images) settings for Flex's settings for each static, hover and active states; colour settings for the Open All button and the option to deactivate said button.

Flex Item
Open This Item on Start
Icon Font – Three optional Icon Fonts, plus Custom
Header Title [colour] – Open, Closed
Header Icon [colour] – Open, Closed
Header Overlay [colour] – visible when active
Content Text [colour]
Content Overlay
Background Colour – Static Drawer colour

Flex's appeal lies not only with the slick animations that it delivers, but also with the total configurability of each of the drawers.
