Time & Systems Monitor


This is my own Rainmeter rebuild of ~londonali1010's Conky config.

I have her gracious permission to release it. She has a great eye for design! (NOTE: Her config uses the font Sawandee, which comes with Ubuntu. Being a Windows user, I had to settle for a close but still gorgeous Bauhaus Light BT, which is included. I'm also not sure if the systems and order I chose to display are the same as hers.)

I also borrowed heavily from ~Kaelri, who I must mention as the first to port one of londonali1010's configs to Rainmeter.

- You can edit the size, color, and font in the .ini file.
- Clicking on the HDD ring or title will open the drive.
- Clicking on the CPU ring or title will bring up the task manager.
- You can also turn both the titles and the digital time display on and off individually.
- There are configs for each corner of your desktop, as well as a vertical and horizontal config.

Thank you for downloading, and for your support!

Enjoy! ;)

no problem your work is awesome i hope i can learn to make some skins hehe I'm lost with the code
livinglightningrod's avatar
You can do it!

All I did was try- I opened up a skin's code, and started trying to figure things out. A lot of it is obvious (fontcolor= etc.), and some things take a little figuring out, but it's not too bad. As long as you made it through geometry in high school, you can do it! And actually, there's no real math (adding, multiplying, etc.). It's just using numbers for positions and values and things like that.

thanks!

all the credit should go to the original designer, though. I just transferred it over to RM!

hey mate you really pumping out the configs now! This one definitely looks interesting. Maybe the scale is a bit big for what I like, but its a really good idea. Good work on porting it over

I thought about you and your minimalist-scale wishes!
You can make a smaller version by simply changing a few variables! Right now, I'm using it with the radius set to about 23, and it's minima-nice!

Though, I can't really take any credit for it. The design is wholly the brilliance of another! ;)

if I ever make that Beauro concept with all the fun colors this would look awesome in those colors. I would definitely mod it then =D
livinglightningrod's avatar
Feel free! That'd be awesome!

You'd have to go through and change each ring's colors, though. As is, they're all set to the same variables. But you could do that in a jiffy.

I'm looking forward to seeing whatever you come up with!
heya, looks sweet as hell, but when i go to run it i get an error saying that the "section [Metadata] is not a meter or a measure!" i played around with the code but i cant get anything to change. what do you suggest?
livinglightningrod's avatar
Check out the second question in my FAQ for help with Metadata!

But, basically, you just need the new version of Rainmeter. No worries!
