Enigma by ~Kaelri If it wasn't for spinegrinder, I wouldn't have seen this. I can't believe I missed it. If you don't have this awesome suite, then I can't believe you either :p

Hi. I beg your pardon for going so long without posting a formal update. Due to life circumstances, I have not been active in Rainmeter since early 2013. While I sincerely miss both the technology and the community—most especially the talented creators and developers with whom I have collaborated—I am no longer able to devote time to them, and unfortunately I don't expect that to change in the foreseeable future.

I am delighted that so many people continue to derive utility and inspiration from Enigma, and I'm very proud of its success. With that said, the version of Enigma posted here is now almost seven years old, and has a number of bugs, broken or outdated functionality, and potential security vulnerabilities. Additionally, Rainmeter itself has made immense progress over the years, and Enigma is no longer a fitting representation of it. Because of these factors, I feel it would be (and long has been) irresponsible of me to continue making the skins available in this way, and I have removed the download option here on deviantArt.

Going forward, Enigma’s home will be on GitHub, where all of its code and assets will be available in perpetuity:

While I have no plans to continue work on Enigma myself, I am willing to review and accept GitHub pull requests that are intended to fix problems or improve existing features. You are still free to download and use the current version of Enigma at your own risk, with the understanding that there is no promise of technical assistance or further development.

To everyone who has used and supported Enigma for the last eleven (!) years, I express my sincere gratitude. :)

Enigma is a suite for the Windows system monitoring application, Rainmeter. It has been downloaded over 1 million times alone, and over 2 million times bundled with the Rainmeter app, which chose Enigma as its default theme in 2009. It has been featured by Lifehacker, Windows Magazine and Computer Bild, and spent over two years as the #1 most popular work in deviantArt's Skins and Themes category.

The full package, including source code, is freely available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 License. It has been forked by over 30 developers on GitHub, and has been referenced, reused and remixed by numerous Rainmeter creators. The author is proud that it has served as an inspiration and a teaching device throughout the history of the Rainmeter community, particularly by students and young developers.

For more information, including the source code, changelog, license and credits, visit the Enigma project repository on GitHub:

Can't download from github. There is no releases or versions or anything. Idk what to do with the code or the files I can browse but nothing screams (download here) at the github location.

Guys, as noted in the description, the downloads have been moved over to GitHub. Also Kaelri isn't really working on this anymore, and much of the stuff in here are now broken due to all sorts of changes. Go here to get Enigma:
