Today, RW provides the front end to Stacks, which is one of 1500+Addons available for RW. Stacks is required to run any of the 5000+ stacks created by the huge Stacks community, and it is precisely this that makes the whole Stacks environment such a rich and well supported web building environment. For example this blog and whole site, is built using Stacks.


Since the future plans were annouced for RW, Isaiah at Yourhead announced he will build Stacks App.


This is a win win win situation for Stacks users and will remove the obstacles imposed by relying on any 3rd party. Stacks App will provide the seamless continuity that Stacks users want.
