There are very few double or tripple threats in the RapidWeaver developer circuit. There are those of us who develop themes for multiple platforms in addition to RapidWeaver, like SandVox or WordPress. There are those of us who are graphic artists and web designers all in one go. But there truly are few, if any until now, developers who have dared develop both RapidWeaver themes AND RapidWeaver plugins under one roof.
I think it is safe to say that Chris from Varsis Studio and seyDesign is the first well know RapidWeaver theme developer to take plugin development full on and make an excellent first effort into this brave new world. In my years working with Chris, he has never ceased to amaze me with his drive and determination and CoverFlow, his first RapidWeaver plugin, shows that he is willing to do what it takes to break into the plugin market. I couldn’t be more proud of him.
