Rainmeter skins, version 1.0

These are simple roundline and string skins - sort of a combination of my older Circuitous and Simplicity Circles skins. The design doesn't lend itself to things like feed readers and calendars, but there are a lot more skins in the suite than are shown in the preview:

Included skins:

- Battery monitor
- Hard drive space (x3)
- Disk activity (using PerfMon.dll)
- RAM space
- SWAP space
- Upload traffic
- Download traffic
- Wifi monitor
- Media player control using NowPlaying.dll
- CPU (average load and top process)
- CPU cores (x4) (core load and frequency)
- Recycle Bin (size, item count, auto-empty)
- CPU temperature (either CoreTemp or SpeedFan)
- Time and Date
- Volume control
- Weather (using Yahoo! Weather)
- vertical or horizontal background bar
[screenshot showing all the skins included in the suite]

Skin settings can be easily changed using the Config.ini skin


Bernd Montag - Sansation font
Yahoo! Weather - weather data
smurfier - Lua wizard
Kaelri - @include-fu
jsmorley - RegExp guru
gronostajo - SimplyRound skin
lalibi - Etheldrede Pantone
amc242 - beta tester
ionstorm01 - beta tester

More info/Help me/How to:

Try the ReadMe file first. You can open it from the Config.ini skin, and it is located at right in the skin root folder.
I also am maintaining a "FAQ" journal entry for these skins, for answers that I expect to repeat a lot or for semi-complicated things that need a long answer.
If the ReadMe and FAQ don't cover it, then fire away in the comments - I'll answer any question I can.

Many thanks everyone who helped beta test these skins, and I hope you all enjoy the final product. As usual, bug reports, feature suggestions, and constructive criticism are all greatly appreciated.

Hyrax out. :wave:

Quick question. What is meant by the media player name? This reads like a dumb question, but I'm actually having trouble making it work.

Hi I love this skin but for a week I've been trying to modify the message "cpu" and put "CPU:"

I tried to change it here:

MeterStyle=mainTextStyle | mainTextCommon
Text="CPU: %1%"

But does not work here. At the same time works perfectly here changing "top" for "Top:"

MeterStyle=subTextStyle | subTextCommon
Text="Top: %1"

I hate to ask but I need to know if there is any way to get change this value as "X% vol" and display "Vol: X%"
Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you in advance. :)

This is PERFECT! Just what I need!
Actually, wanted to keep the 2 bars, as I changed the Height and Weight to first monitor. Now trying to make the same skin as a standalone version to add another one xD (Don't worry, just for me)
Great Job man!

Is it possible to have the download be measured in bits instead of bytes? Thank you.
FlyingHyrax Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014
There isn't a setting for it, but you can add some Calc Measures to the network skins to do this very easily.
Something like this:

Formula=mDownloadRaw * 8


You can either change the value of downloadMax in settings.txt to be in bits, or change [mDownloadPercent] to "Formula=mDownload/(#downloadMax#*8)"

Hi, Is it possible to make the temperature/speedfan pie graph measure from a certain range rather than just a percent of max? such as from 25-70 degrees? etc?
