Edge Suite | Beta 0.8 by KreDoc Edge Suite | Beta 0.8 by KreDoc
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.


There are so many people to thank. I will very soon provide specific links for anything that I've used from the guys below. Please forgive me if I let someone out now, I will add you as soon as I remember you. To the ones I can currently remember :

Been using it for years, great work

Anybody knows how to widen the note?
viking9969 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2016
Excellent!! Congratulations and thanks for sharing!!

My only problem is, for the life of me I can't get the weather to work! Any thoughts on why?
The code is set on the @resourser/user/.../options config settings well as on the start skin, but none work, even trying different city codes in the LLLL#### format.

Appreciate your help and once again: congrats & thanks!
All the best!!

how to setting weather ?
DMalhar Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014
Very fine work.
Doesn't seem a beta version.
thank you all for creating this.
OddFacade Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014
I've visited the FAQ page, but there doesn't seem to be anything about inserting a weather code. 

It'd also be very nice if this had a Recycle Bin module. The skin is absolutely beautiful, but it's missing two heavy functionality modules that break the deal.

Hi! I really love this theme, but I seem to be having some sort of bug and I think it is not working properly. Yes, I've read the FAQ, but this is totally different as there is no trace of such issue I have.

When I'm installing the theme a setup screen appears and asks me for username, dropbox, weather code, etc., you know the drill. The thing is, when I enter any of the variables it asks me, they just disappear! For example, there is a dummy variable 'USER', I type the username I want and when I click outside of it or NEXT button the field goes empty. Exactly the same thing happens with weather any other things in this setup of yours. Going back does not reset the text fields, there is no way to click on them and the typing cursor | does not appear.

I've noticed this when I couldn't get weather to work and my username folder is not present anywere in ~resources > Users.

I'm still able to use all the skins like notes, system, clock, etc., but I really would like to get weather to work.

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and latest stable realese of Rainmeter - 3.0.2 r2161 64-bit.

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong or how to set things up manually.

obv a little late here but maybe this will help someone else.

instead of clicking outside the box hit 'enter/return' and it should save your entry

The best rainmeter skin suit I've ever found! Thanks for sharing.
dctoe Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
A beautiful suite. Thanks for sharing!
EpiclyDelicious Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
This is exactly what I have been looking for. I've always loved wallpapers but hated how big they looked on my 32" TV or even a monitor. The wallpaper skin is EXACTLY what I needed! On top of that, everything is nice, clean, semi-transparent, and has an easy interface! I do admit I was confused on everything at first, but I looked through the comments, support, FAQ, and used logic to piece everything together. I came through and am developing my most favorite desktop EVER! I've never been so happy. :) Suggestions from myself are possibly fixing the YouTube Thumbnails(I don't know if they work or not.), give us the option to stick with one quote that we like in the quote skin, a Twitter feed skin, a Facebook feed skin, fix the artwork in the music player(I don't know if this even works either.), give us the ability to change/have more music programs compatible with the music player skin(if it's not already available, let us make the Gmail feed skin use other mail website such as Hotmail, and I think that about does it for me. I really want to thank you for this awesome skin and all it has to offer! I'm very picky with my skins, well, anything really, and yours was picked as the best! I'd really like my suggestions to be implemented as well. I saw on the forum thread that you are dealing with school and completely understand that, but I just want you to know that I absolutely love this skin! :) Thanks again!
gaejin Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
I loved it, but the wallpaper doesn't work for me.
KreDoc Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012
Do you refer to the wallpaper skin? Or the preview's wallpaper? If you have a problem with a skin, please open the Log and send me a note with the issue that appears. :)

I Don't know if i did Something wrong but I looked it up Several times and with no luck i am unable to find anything regarding my issue. well I followed everything correctly with setting the weather but when i open the Skin it just shows a tiny little circle and the log says Webparser.dll: [mWeather] Matching error! (-1) Is there some simple trick i am missing?.. Sometimes i miss the simple things
KreDoc Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012
Hello, and thanks for using my suite!
Please load the "Actions" skin and left click the "Edit" button to access the Suite variables. Verify there that "Weather" and "WeatherUnit" have been set correctly. Also, please share them to me, so that I can try with your location. :)
WakingNightmare2091 Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012
Oh thank you! i guess it didn't set when i went through the little set up thingy! its working now :) thank you so much! I knew it was something simple!!!

Notes are not showing Cyrillic letters((( And again about Google Reader: how to put more than 5 news on the first page of skin? And make letters smaller?
KreDoc Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012
Thank you for using Edge! As far as Notes is concerned, that is a known issue. I'll try to fix it in the next version. For now, open the skin and set CodePage=1251 under the [mNotes] section. Google Reader can't do any of these, if you want to do it you have to do it manually. Making the fonts smaller is quite easy, just lower the FontSize settings in the skin. The maxinum number per page is more difficult, though, you 'll have to edit the .lua file.
SiriusEye Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012  Student Photographer
Oh. I got it. I created a bundle, set proper link and all worked! Great job!

Am I doing something wrong? In Google Reader I set URL "", then click update, and the window remains blank.

Its not working for me properly, not sure why o0?
KreDoc Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012
Hi! :) Could you tell me what is the problem? Did it installed correctly? Did the "Start" skin loaded successfully? Did you input a username? If you feel like your response will need more space than a DeviantArt reply, please visit the Rainmeter forums thread [link] , and post your reply. I'm looking forward to your feedback.
RTShields Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Ah I got it going now, it needed to run with the beta version but I generally do finals
