So I came across this skin on DeviantArt, and I thought about making an updated version, seeing how the comment section is complaining about the skin not working anymore. So, naturally, I did. Aside from the layout (it was quite big) and weather provider issues of the original, I wanted to have more than just two colors for the skin. So with this one, you can have any color and the skin will choose an appropriate text color based on that. Hovering over the forecast temperature will show you the minimum temperature for that day, by the way. The weather provider used here is Weather.com's JSON API and Nominatim to determine the coordinates for the given location.

Change log
2021-01-29
  • Updated the header image.
  • Fixed the minimum version requirement.
2020-12-05
  • Updated the weather parser to include the option to choose 12/24-hour formats for the sunrise/set and moonrise/set times. Not that it actually matters in this skin, but I like to keep things updated.
2020-12-02
  • Changed the file encoding from ANSI to UCS-2 LE BOM because someone reported having issues with the degree symbols.
  • Fixed a (pretty severe) issue in the color system.

How do you change the location? I'm not in Amsterdam.

Good job. This skin works very well and is very customizable.

Hi, you just have to right-click the skin, press "Settings...", which opens a text file, and then input your location in the WeatherLocation option.

Is it possible to make the background fully transparent?

xMikexBx's avatar

If you want the background to be transparent, go into the Google Weather.ini and change


[Background]

Meter=Shape


Shape=Rectangle 0, 0, (#Scale#*(#Width#+#EdgeThickness#*2)), (#Scale#*(#Height#+#EdgeThickness#*2)), (#Scale#*(#CornerRadius#+#EdgeThickness#)) | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill Color [mColorR], [mColorG], [mColorB], (255*0.25)

Shape2=Rectangle (#Scale#*#EdgeThickness#), (#Scale#*#EdgeThickness#), (#Scale#*#Width#), (#Scale#*#Height#), (#Scale#*#CornerRadius#) | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill Color [mColorR], [mColorG], [mColorB]


UpdateDivider=-1

DynamicVariables=1


to either being this below or removing the entire section.


[Background]

;Meter=Shape


;Shape=Rectangle 0, 0, (#Scale#*(#Width#+#EdgeThickness#*2)), (#Scale#*(#Height#+#EdgeThickness#*2)), (#Scale#*(#CornerRadius#+#EdgeThickness#)) | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill Color [mColorR], [mColorG], [mColorB], (255*0.25)

;Shape2=Rectangle (#Scale#*#EdgeThickness#), (#Scale#*#EdgeThickness#), (#Scale#*#Width#), (#Scale#*#Height#), (#Scale#*#CornerRadius#) | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill Color [mColorR], [mColorG], [mColorB]

There's an option for that in the settings. You can access the settings by right-clicking the skin and pressing "Settings...".

How can I make the background transparent?

Thank you so much bro

can change transparency of the background? this is perfect

is there a way to change celcious to F?

AJ-Dekkers's avatar

Yes, you just have to go into the settings (right-click the skin > Settings...) and change the units option to "Imperial".

I changed the location, and checked rainmeter log that the location is indeed correct. But still the skin doesn't display the weather info. it shows Earth, with no temperature info.

Nvm i updated rainmeter and it worked now. Thanks for the skin! :)
