DeviantStats by bblake DeviantStats by bblake
Version 1.1 - Fixed a bug causing stats to not show.
Version 1.2 - Added "Icon" layout

This is a mostly pointless and silly little skin I made for myself. It shows the number of comments, favs, views, and downloads for a specified deviantArt "Deviation".

Configuration:
Right Click -> Variations -> config.ini

This only works with the full URL

Bad:
ht tp://browse.deviantart.com/customization/skins/sysmonitor/rainmeter/#/d46frz9

Good:
ht tp://bblake.deviantart.com/art/Facebook-for-Omnimo-252678501

To make sure you have the correct URL, just click the Deviation title (the one next to your avatar and above your username)

Horizontal, vertical, and single icon configurations included. Font, font color, shadow color, and icon alpha are easily configurable.

Sweet, I can now check my DA notifications from desktop ; )
But I think to extend this a little, first try to create a variant to retrieve user messages, but I don't think that is possible, webparser don't log in… if I can find another way…

The best will be to create a thing like a drop list or a menu, that can have new entries, when selecting an entry a new "List of stats" is loaded and replace the old… but can't be done 100% automatically… .

If one day a system to clone an existing meter/measure will renaming it come it would be really great for a big part of my skin experiments ^^"

Thanks for sharing, it's very cool !

I love this skin but I must be doing something wrong.I am no noob to Rainmeter but I just can't seem to make this work. I think I have entered the URL correctly as h ttp://chalky10.deviantart.com/art/Goldrush-443890110(without the space)
when I click on the skin icon it takes me to the correct page so that implies all is well, but when I hover over the skin icon I get nothing in any of the stats columns.Please can someone help before I go mad trying to get this to work :)

Good idea, would love to use it.
But it doesn't work for me... :(
Not with the presets and not with my own settings. (used full URL)
Also I only have horizontal but not vertical?
Do I miss something? Or is the vertical just labled "da"? (I think so, but all icons are on the same spot)

Is it possible to make a skin that reads dA message center?

each individual message, or just a total number of messages?

If you look about half way down this message thread...you'll where I posted a link to such a skin I made a while back. It's not perfect. I made it for myself and never really polished it up for release.

I would say it's really usefull and not at all pointless! I had to install rainmeter again just to use it. Really neat to have a overview of what's up on da at your desktop when you wake up and turn on the monitor!

Is there a way to get data from the message center? As in, how many messages you have, replies, etc? I've been looking for something like that for years, and this is the closest thing I have seen for it, thus far.

I've been using this for the past week without any problems. I made it for myself. It's as simple as it gets: just shows the dA message envelope with your inbox count beside it. Just put your username and password in the UserVariables.inc and reload the skin...the first time it may take awhile to show the number, but just give it time.

It's possible, but not in Rainmeter AFAIK. You should make a web service (in PHP or another language) and make Rainmeter retrieve that page.

Hmm, that's what I thought. I'll see if I can come up with something.

I can make it, it's not that hard. The only problem might be that everytime you use Rainmeter you can logout from DeviantART (because it's logging in somewhere else).
I'm not sure about that, but it might happen XD

Alright, I'm not quite sure on how to use this I suppose. I'm trying to figure out exactly what you mean on finding the correct URL.
Reply
:iconbblake:
bblake Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2011
just go to the deviation's page you want to track. then click the title next to the author's avatar (this will ensure you get the right URL). Then copy the url from your browser.
