Rainmeter for Sublime Text 2I recently discovered a great text editor called Sublime Text 2. It is beautiful, fast and highly customizable. I immediately set out to exploit this customizability and created the Rainmeter Package for Sublime Text 2. This package, which is hosted on GitHub, makes developing Rainmeter skins faster, easier and more fun than doing it with Notepad, or even with Notepad++.Rainmeter for Sublime Text 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
The package features
Code Templates for Meters and Measures
A Built-In Color Picker
and a few more features
If you like writing Rainmeter skins or want to start doing it, I think you will be a happier person after downloading Sublime Text 2 http://sublimetext.com/ and installing my package https://github.com/merlinthered/sublime-rainmeter#readme .

The Orbital Clock displays the time in the circles as well as moves the circles around an orbit like the hands of a clock.
One of the awesome things about Rainmeter is the Calc measure. It allows you to do some really cool things. In this case, move meter around the skin based off of time. The skin is a little heavy on algebra and trigonometry.
This isn't a math lesson, so I'm not going to go too terribly in depth on the equations used.
BGColor is the background color of the 'hands'.
RH is the orbit radius of the Hours. RM is the orbit radius of the Minutes, and RS is the Orbit radius of Seconds.
These are text variables. The Fontsizes determine the sizes of the string in the 'hands'.

When I first started using Rainmeter I scoured Deviant Art for skins that fit what I was looking for. I didn’t find any. So I ended up dissecting skins, reading the help file, and discovered that it’s not nearly as complicated as it looks.
The goal of this series is to show how easy it is to make your own skins. I’ll be showing simple skins and code and talking about everything from basic skin creation to some of the more complicated things you can do with Rainmeter.
MAKING A NOTES SKIN
The skin I’ll be demonstrating is probably the simplest notes skin you can create. The skin is fundamentally made by combining different blocks of code. Each block as its own unique name. Each block of code is either a Measure or a Meter. Measures can be thought as a piece of code that stores information, and a Meter is one that displays something. The skin also shows the use of several different features, all of which I’m going to explain. These fea
