Exporting Blueprints and Making your own Presets
As of Architect v1.4, you can now import Blueprints and Presets.
This also means, you can make your own Presets. If you are a designer, you could even sell them!

A Blueprint is saved in a text file that you can then import later, or include in a Preset.
A Preset requires a folder of its own, which is then zipped up and the zip file distributed.
Therefore, to get started on a Preset, first create a folder (directory) for its files. Do not include spaces in the folder name.
Make an info file
The third file we need has a little bit of extra info to show the user for promotional purposes.
Create a file called "info.json"
This is a standard JSON file with three fields: designer, category and webpage
- designer is your name
- category must be one of: Sliders, Grids, Tabular, Accordion, Masonry or Tabbed.
- webpage is the web address of your site
Zip it up
Zip the preset folder up, and you're done!
You now have a Preset ready to distribute. Of course, do test it before you do!
