Raleway rainmeter skin by lilbitgimpy Raleway rainmeter skin by lilbitgimpy
Alright, here it is. My first rainmeter skin. I tried to keep it minimalistic so there wasn't too much for me to screw up, but I probably broke something anyways. You'll have to tell me what it is.


-------------------Update----------------------------------------------

I made some requested changes to the music player, it now displays the album art, which can be clicked to play/pause, and has a progress bar. Enjoy!


----------------------IMPORTANT-------------------------------------------
You'll need to download the Raleway font, which is free and available here: [link]

the background used in the preview is available at: [link] in any size you could possibly want.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All the variables are stored in one file in the variables folder, so you can easily change the color or font of all the elements at once. Yay simplicity!!!!!!
Big thanks to Faulkner 16 for his retro enigma desktop [link] which I used the icons from, and recycled some code.

EDIT: fixed the download link. Durr.

For some reason apostrophes do not show up as apostrophes but as a random set of numbers and other symbols. Why does this happen? Is there a way to fix it?
This is what it looks like: i.imgur.com/uYQ3Gtg.png

you have to add "DecodeCharacterReference=1" under each child measure for the webparser.

I can't get this to pull from CNN news. It won't populate the RSS from there and I can't even get it to direct me to the website once I click on it.
Help please!

I cannot figure out how to get it to display? (newbie to Rainmeter). I did copy it to the Skins folder and it shows on the Rainmeter right click menu, but will not display on my machine?

I have trouble dragging it to where I want, I can't drag it all the way to the left of my screen, and right-clicking sometimes doesn't work either. When I right-click, it right clicks on my desktop and not the app. Really love the design though :)

How do I add some lines + feeds to the RSS?
Would love it if I could customize it to 5-10 lines, but I have no idea how to do that in the code myself.

Another idea is you could have the existing black version along with an alternate white version

Using it now :) Love it. 2 questions though: 1. What resolution do you use? 2. For the music player it says you can "...reconfigure the album art as an icon that plays & pauses the song when pressed." How do I do this?

I use 1280X1024, and that part is leftover from when I took part of the code from the original enigma player. I don't actually have it working on mine yet, but it'll be added for the next update, which should be this week. I'm done school now, so I have all kinds of time. I'm glad you like it :)

Ah. I might up the text size then. I'm using 1920x1200 :X

One suggestion: Why not put a progress line for the music player? similar to this: [link] Except the correct, matching color of course. Shouldn't be hard to do but still keeps the skinny minimalistic look you have

:iconlilbitgimpy:
lilbitgimpy Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010
That's a good idea, I think I'll add that, thanks!
You may want to up the text size, just watch the x,y coordinates of the elements, they'll need to be adjusted accordingly. I'm working on the album art thing right now. I have it showing up, but it's being difficult to turn it into a button.

RoboPanda Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010
I'd also add a small line/dot/something to serve as an indicator of where the progress bar ends. The skin still works 100% fine with a larger font as long as I change the co-ords, just fyi. Looking VERY much forward to updates

:iconlilbitgimpy:
lilbitgimpy Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010
Done. I added the bar, made the album art a play button, and put a little dot there so you know where the bar goes to,
just for you, because you're awesome and give me feedback :)

Just replace your music.ini file with the one here

Thanks man I appreciate it. Here's my desktop if you want to see your hard work on someone elses comp :p

Another suggestion about the music player, I think usually the album art either goes above the Song/Artist info or to the left of it. BUT, it looks to me like it works being below on your pc because of the line the ocean makes. Guess I'll have to figure out how to move that on my own :/

GREAT work though! Loving this skin lol

:iconlilbitgimpy:
lilbitgimpy Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010
To move that one, just open up the music ini and add 110 to the x value of the artist, track and progress bar, and change the y value of the album art to 5 or 10. It should move the elements so that the album art is up beside track and artist, and to the left.
You'll also need to change the x value of the ending dot to 280.
Hope this helps :)
