Hype3 and RapidWeaver 6 with Stacks3

Hello- I’m having a heck of a time trying to get a basic Hype project to display correctly using RapidWeaver 6 with Stacks. Here’s the setup:

  • Create a basic Hype Project and Export to HTML5
  • Within RW5, I create a page and add a Stacks HTML page
  • In the Stacks page, I paste the code created from Hype and publish the web site
  • I upload the resource folder in the same directory as the web page will be published
    It is not displayed when I visit the site

I’ve tried creating iFrames, changing the resource path from relative to direct, and a bunch of other things.

Any thoughts?


in RW you can embed all hype contents via Resources folder.
Drag all hype files in the Ressources area ( under the pages list in the left panel)

Alternative: You can also load the animation through iframe ( no internal resources) in a stacks page, you should use a stacks with iFrame ( see the attachment) .

something like <iframe> <width=”600px” height=”600px” src=”URL” style=”border:0px” scrolling=”no”></iframe>

Here a project with html iframe and another project with stacks page RapidWeaver_embedding_animation.zip (1.7 MB)

I made also some snippet.

in my opinion is better the iframe solution, more flessible.

hope this helps

Thanks @michelangelo

Thank you- Appreciate your time and assistance. I’ll work on that and report back.

In the template you can find multiple ways to embed the animation.

Has anyone run into issues embedding Hype 4 HTML 5 into a Foundry HTML Stack?

I've been successful using specified sizes declaring margins in the Hype 4 html, but if I try to create responsive animations they don't show up.

I noticed those use relative margins (100%x100%) and don't appear when the site is previewed.

I'm trying to create an animated banner that spans the page width, it works if I use a RW HTML page, but not with Foundry's stacks.

the html-element that contains a height-responsive hypeexports needs to have an fix height.
in pixels or something like 50vh .... hype will then fill this height
