Hi, how do i make it so that it updates more often. Does it have anything to do with UpdateRate and what is the meaning of the number after it? (default is 600 is it in minutes?) I'm using Aqi as the website

If the skin is updated more often , you may end up causing a high load on the target site, which ultimately may cause the site to block all access from your computer. As a safety measure, UpdateRate in Rainmeter has a default value of 600, or 10 minutes .

once again, great skin. many thanks.

i found issue with this skin. the url " URL= " doesn't work, at least for me. i had to change the url in the replaced the url with " URL= "

after the change, skin was showing exact info from the website.

My recommendation is not to change en-US, from the link.

The skin is made to use the US scale for AQIndex.

The other countries each use their own scale, each with other values and associated colors.

If you change it with en-IN, the color will no longer correspond to some values.


To me both links show the same values.

There was probably a difference in updating the website.

i tried sticking to the default values. but, that wasn't working in my case (here my city). i had to change the url to reflect the website info to the skin. after the changes, it was working to the exact values and colors. thanks.

At some point the color will not match the displayed values. The US and India use different scales for AQindex.

What is your city?

i'm from Hyderabad, India. as of now, it's showing correct info. i'll monitor and report.

Both links display the same values, but the colors do not match what is displayed on the website (India -english version)

Select in the website menu, Asia Pacific-India English, then click on the Today tab and select details in the Air Quality Index.


Click on the AQI info icon at the bottom of the page to see the scale used in India. Do the same in the US version of the website to see the differences.

many thanks for your time and help. for me, en-US and en-IN show diff values. yes, i do agree that US, IN are using diff scale. that's the reason, diff colors. however, i'm sticking to IN.

What is The Size ?

if you don't mind me asking, is it possible to use instead of ? I'd like to display the readings of a particular AQI sensor in my area, while only provides the readings from sensor. If it is possible, could you please let me know what needs to be changed in the settings? Thanks either way.

The skin has been updated. The IQAir source has also been added

Wow! Thank you soooo much!

xxenium's avatar

You're very welcome

Sorry for being a fool, but how do i change my location? This is great by the way!

Open the settings menu (see skin description) and follow the instructions

Are there air quality forecasts? In other words, can an air quality meter be displayed like a weather forecast with predicted hourly or daily levels?

xxenium's avatar

There is no such information on the website


Thanks for making another great rainmeter!
