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.

ok so first up this is very nice and modern, but i was wondering is there a way to hide the background and only have the text? like on the launcher to be specific. i'd like it to be invisible background this may be super easily done, so no rush i can live with it either way

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 ...as 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!!

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

done!
