Very Flat Weather - RainMeter by SacrificialS Very Flat Weather - RainMeter by SacrificialS
Tweaked version of Flat Weather by fav.me/d3l04vo

Wanted something simpler for my minimalistic theme, and came up with this. Inspiration was Just Weather 1.1 from here 10n3xw01f.deviantart.com/art/J…
You can still get Just Weather online by googling for it, but I did not like the shadows, I wanted flatness :)

Enjoy

Version 1.0: Initial Release
Version 1.1: Cleaned the code up
Version 1.2: Fixed font transparency
Version 1.3: Made Celsius clearer
Version 1.4: Fixed Weather.com API, Packaged in rmskin, slight layout tweaks (Thanks to nascnt for all of this!)

As with previous versions, Manage Rainmeter, select VeryFlatWeather>weather.ini and click Edit. updates instructions are inside.

its a personally started company and would be appreciated!

I got it to work, open the .rmskin in winrar, and then hit view file in winrar, then extract those instead. Then just copy and paste the files into rainmeter folder. Don't try to load the RMSkin file, that crashed rainmeter. Load the next .ini, the weather.ini.

Doesn't work unfortunately. When trying to install it, I got the error that many others already have reported, and after extracting it with 7-Zip and doing a manual install, I only get the number for the temperature. The icons are missing. :(
Too bad... it has exactly the size, style and the horizontal orientation I was looking for...

Seems to work when opening rmskin with 7zip and copying to skin directory! Looks great :)

Is there a way to make multiple icons and have them display current temp, today high, tomorrow high, and two days from now high?

Thanks

unless I'm doing something wrong, the .rmskin file is giving an error:

Hi.  I am new to rainmeter but liked the look of this skin so updated it and got it working again.  Weather.com killed the api, so used a workaround to get it working again.  Also I packaged it in the newer easier to install rmskin format.  So now it requires little effort to install. I slightly modified the size and layout as it seemed a bit small to me.

As with previous versions, Manage Rainmeter, select VeryFlatWeather>weather.ini and click Edit. updates instructions are inside.

Version 1.4 can be downloaded at s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?…
SacrificialS feel free to host it here.

SacrificialS for the skin.

Totally awesome man! Been meaning to get to this, just not had time, been super busy. You did an awesome job fixing it, so glad someone spent the time! Made a few small tweaks, most importantly changing the width in [MeterTemp] from 255 to something smaller (25). This reduces the edge buffer issue so you can move it closer to the edge.

Also made some positional tweaks to move the weather icon closer to the original design's position, not that I did not like how you did it, just that VFW has almost 30k downloads, figure I should keep it to what everyone else apparently liked. =)

Thanks a ton though, all updated and working!

Hi I love this skin and it was working perfectly until now. I just does not display the weather it shows as a small circle. I am using the 3.1.0 r2290 version of rainmeter, any advice?

I can't get this to display the weather. When I first loaded it, it was showing, then all of a sudden it disappeared. The degrees sign is visible, but I can not see the temperature or the little icons. I have re-downloaded it and refreshed it several times.

I even checked the log to see if there are errors, but it only had a Notice notification, but no errors are reported. Any idea what may be wrong? So confused.

Make sure its in the right folder. (Mine is MyDoccuments\Rainmeter\Skins\VeryFlatWeather) then it should be just a simple Right Click -> Rainmeter -> Skins -> VeryFlatWeather

Am short on time at the moment, or I would add this in for you. If you are reasonably good at coding
Check out this one [link] and study how he makes multiple days. Should be simple enough

Hello. I'm having some trouble. I know my weather code, but the only thing that pops up is a big "?". Is there anything else I should be editing aside from the weather code? I'm sticking with F so I didn't change the other two variables. Thanks!

the actual size of the weather icon is transparent, it is larger then then icons themselves. Just uncheck "snap to edges" or something like that in rainmeter and it will allow you to move it to the edge. It's what I do =)
