Edge Suite | Beta 0.8

Description

Welcome to my first Rainmeter Suite! "Edge" is a powerful Rainmeter Suite that focuses on providing multiple User support for your different needs based on location, situation, or Windows machine, while delivering the latest Rainmeter features through a wide variety of skins. Furthermore, "Edge" is designed to provide a very easy environment for theming, making it the only suite that will be able to transform to match *any* Windows Visual Style (more about "Themes" in the future).

Skins included:

  • Actions
  • Chat
  • Clock (Digital/Analog)
  • ColorPicker
  • Date
  • Gmail
  • Google Reader
  • Launcher
  • Music Player
  • Notes
  • Quotes
  • Google Search
  • System
  • Wallpaper
  • Weather
  • Youtube


Rainmeter 2.4 beta r1598 is required. Get it from here.

General Guide

When you install "Edge", the Start skin will be loaded automatically. It is a wizard skin, which will guide you through the necessary steps to use the suite. Creating a User is mandatory. Even if you just want to use "Edge" without all the extra User features, you must create a new User.
Lastly, the wizard prompts you to enter some more variables, and explain how skins work. It will be expanded in the future.

Skin abilities

Most of the skins come with some shared abilities, to create a consistent suite experience. Some of them include:
  • The Edit button: This button launches a GUI which let you easily change User variables. RIGHT click opens the variables file in your default config editor.
  • MIDDLE click: Middle clicking on ANY skin background will close the skin. Personal Preference, so I would like your opinion about that.
  • Hover: Hovering many skins enables some buttons and options that weren't visible before.
  • Scroll wheel: Many skins support scrolling for changing pages and items. Make sure to check that out.


PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE visit the the forum thread, where a FAQ, detailed Instructions and help are waiting for you. Also, consider that this is a stable, but beta release, so there may be problems. Please try to contact me, to get them solved.
