Rect Clock [1.0] by injust29 Rect Clock [1.0] by injust29
Rectangular Clock

I had the idea in my head to break out of the mold of traditional round analog clocks and make one rectangular. But with Rainmeter as opposed to a real, physical clock, I could make it a little more interesting: morph the hands so that they stretch out toward the edge of the rectangle.

Applying a bit of math, I devised this clock. The tick marks are dynamically cut to the border of the rectangle, no matter what size or proportions, so that the tick marks are always precise. The clock can be scaled and skewed however you'd like.

Also, all of the colors can be easily changed, just follow my many, many comments in the skin code. The only images used are for the tick marks, but this is rendered in high resolution to support any amount of scaling and sizing you could imagine; the rest is generated with meters in Rainmeter, so everything is very easy to customize to a suitable appearance for your desktop.

If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know! Thanks!

All of the clock hands stretch based on their position, not just the red second hand. It's just most obvious in the second hand since it moves the most and is the longest.
