The Fucking Word of the Day

The Fucking Word of the Day is a feed from [link]

This shows The Fucking Word of the Day with it's definition, part of speech, and pronunciation.
You can also cycle through five old words of the day for six total.
The Back, Forward, and Page meters are hidden until you hover over them.
Currently, there is a bug where if you leave the skin and hover over it again it will show the arrow buttons when they're at the end of the available words but I have no plans to fix this.
UPDATED FOR THEIR NEW FORMAT.

Okay, I "created" a new rss feed based on the webpage. Hope that is online more often.

Link of feed:
        Url=feed43.com/8462052726635652.xm…

Parsing:
        Parse=.*<description><!\[CDATA\[(.*). .*

\[(.*)\].*(.*).*. (.*)

.*

(.*)

.*</description>

Thanks! This looks like a great solution to me being lazy about making the websites code regular. (I'm likely not going to update the skin out of sheer laziness though)

The feed tends to be offline every once in a while. But if it is online, the RegXP should be updated as follows:

;%1 is the word, %2 is the pronunciation, %3 is the part of speech
    WordFormat=%1 [%2] %3
    Parse=.*<item>.*<title>(.*)</title>.*<content:encoded><!\[CDATA\[

\[(.*)\].*(.*).*. (.*)

.*

(.*)

.*<img.*</content:encoded>.*</item>
    Substitute="
":"","":"","":""

Hahaha sorry about this. I know I'm half a year late, but the way their site is laid out makes it hard to parse. At some point I remembered/was reminded I could parse it through some google thing to normalize it, but I just apparently never did.

Any chance of this getting updated since TFWOTD changed their layout?
JpsCrazy's avatar
I'll take a look and see if I can still Rainmeter. :P It's been ages though.
StephStef's avatar
That would be great if you did. No one else has this :)
Thanks for the work.
JpsCrazy's avatar
Their formatting is really inconsistent making this very hard to parse... I don't think I'd be able to fix it. Sorry.
JpsCrazy's avatar
What's funny is I can't even open the .rmskin. :P
Lemme stick my head into this and see if I can't figure it out.
(Your reply is from Jan? I wasn't notified about it until today...)

[msRSS]
Measure = Plugin
Plugin = Plugins\WebParser.dll
UpdateRate = 1800
Url = [link]
RegExp = (?siU)#Parse#

(Added spaces around equal sign due to smiley problem)...


PS. Sorry for spamming your page haha.
JpsCrazy's avatar
It's fine, and thanks for the help. It worked.
Now to repackage the .rmskin and such.

Just an fyi, I used Uniextract to extract the ini from the rmskin file, and was playing around with it. It seems as if the multiple "#parse#" was causing a problem. I modified the ini to only show the current WOTD and used the following and it worked fine:

[msRSS]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=Plugins\WebParser.dll
UpdateRate=1800
Url=[link]
RegExp=(?siU)#Parse#

Just thought I would let you know, so when you redo the rainmeter ini you know where to look for the regex problem...
As for the rmskin problem, I have no idea what was wrong as I have never made one before.

still an invalid file. what version is this for
JpsCrazy's avatar
I'm going to have to look into this...
It should be fine with the stable 1.3 - at least the normal skin.
What exactly happens?
I'm going to recreate it, there's some problems with the RegExp

I'm running Win7 64bit, Rainmeter 1.3 rev 560

I'm running Win7 64bit, Rainmeter 1.3 rev 560 and I'm getting the invalid file warning also.

Rainstaller says: "Invalid file."
JpsCrazy's avatar
I just downloaded it and reinstalled it with no problems.
I would suggest downloading it again in case it didn't download completely and reinstalling the skin.
If you continue to have problems try asking on the Rainmeter Forums: [link]
