Rainmeter Workshop - 1RAINMETER WORKSHOPRainmeter Workshop - 15 years ago in Personal More Like This
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
Youtube CSS!Oh wow, after only one day, plus a few hours afterwards tweaking the thing, I'm going to release this CSS. It's just too good to keep from everyoneYoutube CSS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's a pretty straightforward CSS, with one special feature, which is the Youtube video that's at the top of every journal. At the moment of writing this journal, it's still a Subscriber-only feature. But if you're still interested in downloading the CSS and using it, here's how you'd edit the video that's shown:

Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #1 - Do I Need a JacketThis is a code walkthrough of my "Do I Need a Jacket?" Rainmeter weather skin. The goal of the skin is to replicate doineedajacket.com in a Rainmeter weather skin, including the ability of the end user to set their own temperature thresholds. Here's a screenshot of what this skin looks like:Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #1 - Do I Need a Jacket3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, lets get the basics out of the way. We of course need [Rainmeter], [Metadata], and [Variables] sections.

Ladies and Gentlemen
After almost 18 months, we're finally proud to announce
The Grand release of Omnimo 6.0.
And likely, the last major update
In the lifecycle of this project.
Life's circumstances have a tendency to change rapidly, and indeed, both of us (me and Xyrfo) had experienced rather significant changes which kept us from activelly working on this project. We started it as we were teenagers, but we've grown up and our new lives have begun. Perhaps Omnimo is a tribute to this transition; a hobbyist project that had become more serious with every release. We put our faith in the hope that our efforts were not in vain, and that the long wait had been worth it.
In our previous releases, we hesitated making the changelog out of fear that we won't cover everything that we've worked on. Incidentally, it's also the case for Omnimo 6.0 - we've improved it so much, I
Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #2 - Binary ClockIf you are unfamiliar with the binary (base 2) numeral system, you may want to do some reading here before going through the rest of this post.Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #2 - Binary Clock3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The aim of this skin is to create a binary-coded decimal clock in Rainmeter. To keep this short, we'll just do the hours and minutes (especially since the code for seconds is virtually identical to the minutes anyway).

(package includes several variants - we'll be going through "Decimal_HM.ini")
To begin, we'll need [Rainmeter], [Metadata]
