This is a Rainmeter suite including at the moment slideshow (2 variants that differ in image height) and player (both with drop shadow), time/date/weather, RAM/CPU, and screenshot skins. The buttons advance to the next item for the slideshow and player skins though the player also shows transport controls on hover (the player is very simple - it's purpose is to display cover art nicely and to provide basic transport controls). Left clicking toggles time/date/weather between temp/time and weather description/date and toggles the RAM/CPU skin. Left clicking the button in the bottom left takes a screenshot.
This work is hugely inspired by the wonderful work of tokems [link] and pk1st [link] .
Welcome to my first Rainmeter Suite! "Edge" is a powerful Rainmeter Suite that focuses on providing multiple User support for your different needs based on location, situation, or Windows machine, while delivering the latest Rainmeter features through a wide variety of skins. Furthermore, "Edge" is designed to provide a very easy environment for theming, making it the only suite that will be able to transform to match *any* Windows Visual Style (more about "Themes" in the future).
Rainmeter 2.4 beta r1598 is required. Get it from here.
When you install "Edge", the Start skin will be loaded automatically. It is a wizard skin, which will guide you through the necessary steps to use the suite. Creating a User is mandatory. Even if you just want to use "Edge" without all the extra User features, you must create a new User. Lastly, the wizard prompts you to enter some more variables, and explain how skins work. It will be expanded in the future.
Most of the skins come with some shared abilities, to create a consistent suite experience. Some of them include:
The Edit button: This button launches a GUI which let you easily change User variables. RIGHT click opens the variables file in your default config editor.
MIDDLE click: Middle clicking on ANY skin background will close the skin. Personal Preference, so I would like your opinion about that.
Hover: Hovering many skins enables some buttons and options that weren't visible before.
Scroll wheel: Many skins support scrolling for changing pages and items. Make sure to check that out.
PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE visit the the forum thread, where a FAQ, detailed Instructions and help are waiting for you. Also, consider that this is a stable, but beta release, so there may be problems. Please try to contact me, to get them solved.

*Possible Font issue - For some, the font Roboto is not loading with the skin. There is a font folder inside the skins directory; FLaTTs-@Resources-Fonts. I've actually deleted all Roboto fonts from my computer, and reinstalled FLaTTs without installing the font and the Roboto font still loads in the widgets, because of the fonts folder included, so I'm not sure what's going on, if anyone is having an issue, try installing the fonts from the Fonts folder I mentioned above. If anyone has a solution to this odd problem, please let me know, I'd appreciate it, thanks.
|| UPDATE 6 || 11/26/2013 This is going to be the final update for the FLaTTs skin.
*FIXED*: Google calendar widget, the events list no longer extends past the bottom edge, it just shows the first 8 events of the month, though the calender will show all.
*CHANGED*: The weather widget has been redesigned to more info added.
*NEW*: Now includes a system stats widget, that includes Core Temp readings ( download Core Temp for free ), a google apps launcher, there's a search input field on it, but I forgot to add the code, so maybe I'll do another update to finish that. Added a favorites launcher, has four sections in it, social, shopping, web links and apps. Also added a small User folders launcher.
|| UPDATE 5 || 10/17/2013 Now with The Three-in-one Notebook widget. Includes note-taking with up to nine note-pages, TodoList with nine tasklists which include up to nine tasks per tasklist and a gmail reader, shows your most current nine emails.
Update 6 will be a big update, it will be coming up within the next two weeks, it's going to include; System Status widget, a google apps widget, an apps & website shortcut launcher and I'm going to redesign the weather and add more weather info.
|| UPDATE 4 || 10/10/2013 Added a dashboard widget, includes a gmail icon that show the count of your new emails, hover over the icon and it will show your latest email in a tooltip. To edit your gmail username and password, right click on the icon. Next is the facebook icon that shows the count of your lastest notifications, up to the last ten, after that it'll show just a "10+", hover over the icon and it shows the latest notification in a tool tip, left click the icon to edit the rss feed for your facebook notifications. The notebook icon for right now is just eye-candy till I finish working on the notebook widget and the recycle icon links to your recycle bin showing the count of items in your bin, left click to open the recycle bin, right click to empty it. ENJOY!!
|| UPDATE 3 || 10/2/2013 Added a calendar and Google Calendar widget. If you need help configuring your Google Calendar widget, just leave me a note or comment here.
The code that was used for the calendar and Google Calendar was made by moshiAB for his Sphynx rainmeter suite, he was kind enough to let me use it.
|| UPDATE 2 || 09/27/2013 The music player and clock&date widgets have been added. To set your music player, press the little settings button on the upper right corner of the player widget. By clicking on the song title and artist it brings your player; iTunes, Winamp ...etc. to the front. Hovering over the cover the controls popup, such as previous play/pause and next buttons.
|| UPDATE 1 || 09/26/2013 Added the Image RSS Combo widget. Two parts to the widget, there's the rss reader on the right, has 3 different feeds you can use, switch between feeds with the buttons on the bottom. The image feed is from Interfacelift, a feed of the most recent 6 wallpapers added. By clicking on a thumbnail image it places that image in the large preview window, if you hover over the large image, the title will pop up, and if clicking anywhere on the title background it will open your browser to that image on interfacelift.com. To edit any of the reader feeds, press the diamond rss button in the center of the widget, I don't recommend changing the Image feed, it probably will not work.
New Rainmeter, FLaTTs. Starting with the weather widget first, there's gonna be more widgets to follow, I have it set to where you can redownload this rmskin package and it will keep all your settings when I have updates/added more widgets, so you don't have to go in and change things again. It's just a simple skin no fancy stuff flat as you can see, the design is based from Flattastic UI kit By Ben Moss. Hope you enjoy, there is more to come!
Since the picture says pretty much everything you need to know, I'll use this space to tell you about what ISN'T there yet: * one of the four buttons in the session control part of the start menu isn't working, namely the sleep one. * since I'm on win 8 I can't verify wether the aero blur works, so I still have to actually implement it even though there's a aero blur on/off option in the config skin. * I forgot to put the weather unit choice option in action on the config skin, so it'll show celsius by default and to change it you'll have to edit the variables file manually if you want farenheit. * While you can choose what to show on the smallbar, the same can't be said about the tallbar.
All of these things (and more) will get fixed when I update the suite in some time. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
As usual, if you have suggestions, critiques, bug reports, etc. feel free to eapress them here in the comments!
small update: fixed the " can't edit variables like hard drives and rss feeds from the config skin" error. thanks to all that reported it and sorry!
