Desktop monitoring inspired by the AddGadgets.com (and Orbmu2k) Windows Sidebar Gadgets.

This suite was created as addition to SilverAzide's suite to complete the move of our beloved Addgadgets.com collection from Windows Sidebar-Gadgets to Rainmeter.
Since many things like power control or volume control were never covered by Addgadgets, Orbmu2k's gadgets were a great addition at the time, so some gadgets were also redone for the suite.
Over time many more gadgets have been added which none of them ever had.

Rainmeter 4.3 and .NET Framework 4.5 or newer required to use this suite!

Compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10




General:



Each skin has a settings skin and can be scaled individually for any resolution.
Detailed descriptions for each setting can be found via tooltips, easily accessible by hovering the setting text with your cursor.

You can choose between several different styles through the launcher skin to set it globally and customize some of the used colors to your needs:
  • Default: Typical gradient styled background we know and love
  • Blurred Edges: Colored Background (changeable) with blurred edges
  • Solid Color: Colored Background (changeable)
  • Solid Accent: Colored background, uses the defined windows accent color
  • Modern Gadgets: Matches mostly the Modern Gadgets style by raiguard
  • Glass Blur: Windows 7 styled blurred background (Aero)
  • Glass Acrylic: Windows 10 styled blurred background
Both glass variations require Win8/10.



Media skins:

Hello!

Just now noticed SilverAzide gadgets suite is no longer to be found.

Anyone got info about that?

Dudebaker's avatar
DudebakerHobbyist Interface Designer

Hey,

you can get it on github, take a look at his rainmeter forum thread: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=20699

The only thing I could find about that it's not on deviant anymore is this answer from him in a rainmeter forum thread:

https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=36022&p=183062#p183062

Hello!

Thanks for the info!

Hopefully SilverAzide will be back in here soon!

I'm having minor trouble using the Media Control. I'm using MusicBee and when i set the player to CAD nothing works and i get "No Player Detected!". Strangely, if i leave it blank the controls will work (back, play, next) but the album cover and song information are all missing.


Love these widgets. Thanks alot for all you work.

Dudebaker's avatar
DudebakerHobbyist Interface Designer

I'm glad you like my suite.

Since I've never used MusicBee I had to test this myself too.

And you're right, on a new installation the skin doesn't get any values from MusicBee.


The key to get this to work is:

- Go to the MusicBee settings

- Go to Plugins

- Enable the plugin "cd art display" and check the "launch on startup".


After a restart of MusicBee and the Media skin the available infos will be shown and the play/pause/next/previous/skip to functions will work.

Thanks, its working now. You da man!

Hello!

Is it happened something? It is from 3 days, I have found Rainmeter closed suddenly, from that moment Cryptocurrency widgets stop to work (all other widgets work fine). I have try many times to close and open Rainmeter but the result is always the same.

Hello,


it seems cryptonator has added CloudFlare protection to their API.

Rainmeter now sees at first the CloudFlare protection page and then it would be redirected to the correct API page but since this redirect requires a full-blown Browser-Engine this doesn't work with the Rainmeter WebParser.


My only solution is now to change my Skin to the CoinGecko API.

Will take a look at this but no exact ETA... maybe this weekend or next weekend.

Dudebaker's avatar
DudebakerHobbyist Interface Designer

It seems Cryptonator has removed the CloudFlare protection from their API

-> the Cryptocurrencies skin works again.


So I'm not in a hurry, the switch to CoinGecko has to be done, but now I can take my time...

faxuno's avatar

Hello!


Yessss, before you write me I have discovered that is not an error, but a question of decimals; before to discovered it I have look in the .ini but everything was ok :brushteeth:


I have also duplicate the "Cryptocurrencies widget", fantastic!


For the "32x32 .png" missing, I have made the best with CoinGecko (before I have try with Coinmarketcap, Coin360 and Investing, these sites have PNG icons) that have WEBP icons to convert in PNG. I have added HBar, Erd, One, Band and TFuel. I have made with Coingecko because is the site with more crypto, but some crypto there is not on Cryptonator, like Seele, For, Top, Hit, Bitcoin HD (BHD), Mx. Ok, patience.


I see you there is "C:\Users\ xxxUserNamexxx \Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets Additions\@Resources\Images\Currencies" 438 crypto icons. I see your icons are all with a circle, on the websites I have mentioned some crypto doesn't have circle (like you see in the image). Where did you get these icons so we may have the same style with new icons to insert?


However it is all very cool! ;P


Is it also possible to have the change of variation not only with "1 hour", but also with "24 hours", maybe instead of the volume or before it? Perhaps the volume it will be better in dollars, the investors and the main websites express usually the volume in dollars.


Very very good! It is very useful to have always a global vision for people that invest in cryptos, instead of entry in the wallet or in some website via web or app everytime.

For the icons I'm using, there's a link in the credits ( https://github.com/spothq/cryptocurrency-icons).

The package is not as complete as I would like to but it's, I believe, the only available package with really many of the most used coins.

Since, more or less, there are on a daily basis new coins, this would anyway be a never ending pithole.


For the 24hours change, sadly the Cryptonator API (https://www.cryptonator.com/api) doesn't deliver this value and the CoinGecko API (https://www.coingecko.com/en/api) doesn't deliver the 1h change, at least not in the simple request, only the extended one.

The API of Coin360 is very limited and Investing doesn't have one.


Maybe I'll create a second skin in the future which uses the CoinGecko API as alternative.

Then I could add again the rank of each coin and maybe even directly download the given images from CoinGecko but that's nothing what you do in some hours...

Using both in a single skin wouldn't be as easy (CoinGecko needs other IDs as Cryptonator, for example, CoinGecko needs "holotoken" and Cryptonator "hot").

faxuno's avatar

Hello!

I have updated my Gadgets Additions set! Because I have 22 cryptos to show, I have made groups of 5 cryptos to have a better view for me. What a shame that on Cryptonator there aren't 6 cryptos I am looking (RSR, TOP, FOR, SEELE, MX, BHD).

Then I have changed icons with CoinGecko PNG, so I prefer and there are also new logos for some cryptos (I had to modify with a graphic program some PNG, like STORJ, cause transparency problem).

I have see the API of Cryptonator and CoinGecko you have linked, perhaps we may ask to these sites to add some other line of code to have 1 day change :? . And CoinMarketCap and TradingView have some API to use? TradingView is spectacular.

Using different API in a single skin I think is not very good, also the idea to show also the rank is nothing bad!

If you want I may help you with CoinGecko to made something. I think your widgets have the possibility to be more powerful yet, for example with Coingecko there are alerts on variations, price or %, that are working, also with Trading View alerts work perfectly, I have try the alerts with Investing and don't work, and CoinMarketCap doesn't have.


Another thing dudebaker .... I have see that when I have Rainmeter working my PC doesn't go in suspend mode, when I have Rainmeter disable the PC go in suspend mode; do you know if it is a problem of the skin or a problem of Rainmeter?


Thank you! :+fav:

Previously I had a skin for CoinMarketCap but since they now need a API-Key I switched back to Cryptonator (even with a API-Key you were limited to about 100 request per day or something like that...).

TradingView needs a username/password authentication which is even less user friendly (wouldn't work out of the box after installing the skin).


The only way to go would be a CoinGecko skin, but currently I do not have the time to implement it, maybe in the near future.


For your alert request - this is not possible with the CoinGecko API (since there is no authentication via username the API doesn't know which alert settings it should use...) and would only maybe be possible with a TradingView skin (which I will not implement as described above).


For your issue with Rainmter - I've never had such a problem with the suspend mode nor heard of it, but to be honest, I'm only using PCs and not Notebooks which either run 24h or will be shutdown anyway each time.

faxuno's avatar

Hello! I am very happy to have discovered this fantastic Rainmeter set!

For me is very useful to see my cryptocurrencies watchlist in real time. I think it is the only that do this thing, and very well.


But there 1 error with a crypto I have inserted, HOT. The value on Crytonator is

0.00063842 USD , but the price of HOT on the widget is 0.001.


Another thing. I see that we can insert a maximum of 10 entries for cryptocurrencies. Is not possible to duplicate the widget to have another watchlist?

Hi, I'm glad you like my rainmeter suite!


The error you've mentioned is not really an error.

It looks like you've set in the Settings for this Cryptocurrency a decimals-value of 3.

In this case the skin rounds the given value 0.00063822 USD to three decimals which results in 0.001 USD.

You only have to rise the decimals count to, for example, 4 or 5 and you'll see a value of 0.0006 USD or 0.00064 USD.


For the second question, yes it's possible to duplicate the skin and here's the how to:

  1. Go to "C:\Users\xxxUserNamexxx\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets Additions"

  2. Duplicate the folder "Cryptocurrencies" and name it "Cryptocurrencies2"

  3. Open this new folder, open the file "Cryptocurrencies.ini" and change the line "VarPath=#@#Variables\Cryptocurrencies.inc" to "VarPath=#@#Variables\Cryptocurrencies2.inc"

  4. In this folder, open the "Config" folder, open the "Settings.ini" and change the line "VarPath=#@#Variables\Cryptocurrencies.inc" to "VarPath=#@#Variables\Cryptocurrencies2.inc"

  5. Go to "C:\Users\xxxUserNamexxx\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets Additions\@Resources\Variables\"

  6. Duplicate the file "Cryptocurrencies.ini" and name it "Cryptocurrencies2.ini"

  7. Restart Rainmeter and open the new skin through the Contextmenu (right-click one of my skins -> Rainmeter -> Gadgets Additions -> CryptoCurrencies2 -> Cryptocurrencies.ini)


PS:

As I see one of your Currencies doesn't show an image (HBAR).

If you want to have an image for this one, you'll only have to add one called "hbar.png" in the folder "C:\Users\xxxUserNamexxx\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Gadgets Additions\@Resources\Images\Currencies"

Great job! Really appreciate your work dude.


just a little question - my currency widget is not showing right icons for Euro and GBP:


2020-04-03 16 18 44-D  Dokumenty Rainmeter Skins G

When I add another 7 rows, there are some rows where Euro is blue with right icon, the same for GBP. Any idea how to fix it?


Thanks.

Starting a few days ago, the 'Usage Monitor' Gadget starting reporting N/A for all of the entires on my PC. Here's a snip of my desktop with your and Raiguard's "Modern Gadgets" mixed together. I've also added the main usage monitor skin to the snip but normally I only have the popout skins organized in the corner for CPU/RAM/GPU/VRAM (8/8/3/3)


https://imgur.com/a/4TXA2Q8


AFAIK, the HWinfo sensors are reporting things fine (at least that's the case for my other skins as part of Raiguard's skins) so nothing can be an issue there - and I don't think I've made any significant changes to my system in the past few days that would have altered my skins or system settings. I've also checked your 'HWinfo monitor' skin and the few sensors that I have set up are reading fine...


Any idea what could be going on here?

It seams your Counters Database got corrupted.
Take a look at the following link on the part "Rebuild Counters Database": docs.rainmeter.net/manual/plug…
Maybe it helps, please report back if this was successful or not (I've never seen this issue on any of my PCs).

PS: The Usage Monitor doesn't use HWinfo for showing the values, it uses Performance Counters from native Windows perfmon.exe

Is it possible to change language in settings?

Dudebaker's avatar
DudebakerHobbyist Interface Designer
No there's no multi language implementation, maybe in a future version...
ylye33's avatar

Thank you!!! I really love the gadget you design. But I am annoyed about how can I change the style of skin? I want to change my RSS reader appearance to glass (Aero) Style but I can't
