TerminologyGet Your Trendy Buzzword Fix Here

System

RapidWeaver Central's Maximal Design Module System. This is a buzzword-resplendent fancypants name for the conceptual framework that encompasses everything on these pages.

pack

This refers to the products you can buy. Each Maximal Design Pack contains a set of 3 Projects.

page

This refers to a fully structured and formatted Stacks page, replete with menu and containing up to 10 responsive Modules.

module

Module refers to a self-contained and fully responsive section of a page, composed of Functional Components, Dynamic Clusters and Styled Elements. A Style Module is the finished product.

Foundation Version

This refers to Joe Workman's Foundation Theme and the fully-configured ready-to-go module packs that can be instantly deployed in your Foundation projects.

Universal Version

This refers to the theme-agnostic or theme-independent version of the module pack. These modules do not require Foundation and can be copy-pasted into Stacks pages on other themes. Obviously we can't guarantee they'll look exactly the same or work absolutely perfectly with every theme out there, but with a small amount of tweaking they'll come very close. For display purposes this version requires the included Blank Theme to be installed.

Blank Theme

This refers to the included Blank Theme which has zero styling applied. As such, the modules may not look the way they do in the examples until you copy them into your chosen theme. Once again, we can't guarantee they'll look exactly the same or work absolutely perfectly with every theme out there, but with a small amount of tweaking they'll come very close.

Dynamic Cluster

This refers to a group of components and elements, usually with animated effects. In certain circumstances this may be referred to as a ClusterDuck.

Component

A functional part of a module.

Element

Element generally refers to typographic elements, styled text sections and Google Font Pairings.

Maximal Design

Maximal Design is a fancypants name to describe my Design Every Element 'philosophy'.

philosophy

Philosophy is a fancypants name to describe what is essentially Maximal Design's defining, and only, principle.

Fancypants

An almost literal translation of the Scottish term Gallus Breeks, which loosely means Bold Trousers. This was a derogative term often used to describe my dress sense back in the hippy daze of my purple-looned youth. In terms of style, it has been said that little has changed.

Omne Consilium

Omne Consilium is the root of the medical term future historians will use to chronicle the RapidWeaving condition currently nibbling its way through the neural pathways of my sanity.
