Blank is a free theme from ThemeFlood. Many people regard this non-flamboyant theme as the original and best 'blank canvas' theme available for RapidWeaver and pre-dates many others available on the market. Blank works with all RapidWeaver page types, including Styled Text, HTML Code, Markdown, and perhaps most importantly Stacks. With this theme, you can build individual pages for things like embedded video, survey forms, documentation and slideshows. Alternatively you can use Bootstrap code snippets or the Stacks plugin to build complete websites. Blank works the way you want to work; and you can effortlessly create beautiful pages with drag and drop simplicity.

This latest version (exclusively for RapidWeaver 8 and above) gives you simple checkboxes to control what libraries or frameworks you want loaded. A colour picker to change the body background and a setting to control the maximum width of the main page container. There is absolutely nothing else! So this truly is a blank framework you can use, abuse and do almost whatever you want with. No complicated stacks or pages of boring documentation to tediously work through either. Instead, this is a blank theme to dive straight into and start using 30 seconds from now.

Offered in the frameworks and libraries, you can choose to enable:
  • Bootstrap 5, Materialize or Timber CSS as a frontend framework.
  • Font Awesome Icons v5 (free) as an icon library.
  • Legacy RapidWeaver CSS, for things like the old blog, sitemap and gallery page types.
  • A choice of 4 different CSS resets, if you're not using any frontend framework.

With the default settings applied, Blank has a total page size (without content) of only about 4KB. Consider that there are some supposedly blank themes for RapidWeaver that can be over 500x that size!


Blank Theme is compatible with all major web browsers. It's also a theme that plays well with lots of popular RapidWeaver page style plugins and Stack elements.
