RapidWeaver 7 is here, giving OS X users the ability to build beautiful websites without writing a single line of code. The update brings an overhauled FTP engine, brand new website themes, and useful features like the SEO health checker.

RapidWeaver is one of the easiest ways to build a website from scratch without writing the whole thing yourself. It’s the closest you’ll get to iWeb, the what-you-see-is-what-you-get site builder Apple used to offer as part of the iLife suite before it was dropped in 2011.

Building a complete site from scratch is as easy as selecting a theme, adding some content, and hitting the publish button. You can keep things as simple as you like, or make your site more sophisticated by tweaking its design, adding third-party add-ons, and more.

Once you’ve built your site, you can use the new SEO health check feature to quickly find out what you can do to make your site faster, and more efficiently indexed by search engines like Google.

RapidWeaver 7 also lets you add banner images to compatible themes, preview your live pages in an instant using the built-in web server, backup projects as ZIP files, and minify your CSS and JavaScript.

You can get your hands on RapidWeaver 7 today from the Realmac website. It’s priced at $99 for new users, or $59 if you’re upgrading from a previous release.
