Simplicity 2

Update: RMSkin (20 November 10)

I've coverted the package to the ".rmskin" format, which makes it quick and easy to install new skins in the latest version of Rainmeter.


I am a longtime fan of AKH's Simplicity. The config is still among the top-ten most popular Rainmeter downloads, and is of some historical significance for Rainmeter, being one of the first "suite"-class packages, with multiple skin variants, its own sidebars and borders, and even rudimentary support for varying resolutions. Enigma owes much to Simplicity's design philosophy.

AKH, who had no concrete plans to continue working on Simplicity, has kindly granted me permission to update the skin for Rainmeter 1.1. I have not only rewitten the entire skin line-by-line, but taken advantage of some cutting-edge features from the most recent Rainmeter beta builds. Of course, if he wants his baby back in the future, I'll be happy to let him take over again. In the meantime, I hope I've done justice to a much-loved skin of the past while bringing it into the modern age.

Among other additions, Simplicity 2 has integrated the much-beloved chip clock by Leuchtstoff.

Please see this post if you're interested in the new Rainmeter functions introduced here.

Wallpaper is included. :)

also, I'm not sure how much work this would be, but it would be really cool if I could change the colors of the bars in each meter, while the text stays white. just an idea.

I am unclear about adding my weather code to the weather ticker. When I got to the web address you put in the directions, my browser says that address doesn't exist. How do I get the weather meter working? I love how simple all of this looks. It's perfect for my desktop.

Any plans on updating this soon?
Can you update so that you can choose from 12 h format or 24 h format?

It may be a while before I get around to updating Simplicity, but I'll keep this in mind when I get there. :)

Nice! Might i ask, how do you get all these awesome wallpapers on all your creations?
Kaelri's avatar
The Simplicity wallpaper came with the original. As for the others, there's no one place. I follow InterfaceLIFT, Wallpaper Abyss, Simple Desktops, Fifty Foot Shadows, and a whole slew of users here on deviantArt. :)

hi i was wondering how do I change the color?
if you can answer me ... I thank
ago and I loved your work
(And sorry for my english I'm using the google translator) ...
This is really great. Like, really. Only thing I'm missing is a system volume control, like maybe clicking it opens a slider or something. That'd be grand. But seriously, great work.

I'm planning to do a big overhaul for this skin sometime this fall. I'll remember your suggestion when I do. :)
