Rainmeter - Simple Media 1.1 by lilshizzy Rainmeter - Simple Media 1.1 by lilshizzy
### Check out my latest skins "Encoded [link]" "Elegance [link]" "Ribbits [link]" ###

*** Update v1.1 - 062211 ***
- Added a few new options for Time/Date & Weather
- Now in .rmskin format for easier installation.
- Minor updates to code.

Keeping it simple for my first ever Rainmeter release. I've included many of the themes I've worked on into a single package. Mix & Match, change colors, fonts, sizes... modify to your heart's content.

Included are multiple options for the following.

-Recycle bin + meter*

This project has certain elements taken from or inspired by both Token and Enigma skins, big Thanks to the authors. Also thanks to bobbyperux and his SIMPLE CLOCK SAVER for inspiring one of the included Date/Time skins.

~Rainmeter is Required to use this skin, visit [link]

(*)The big ugly trash bin icon isn't included, it's simply there to illustrate a use for the skin next to it. :D

I can't seem to change the font type in the DateTime skin. I've tried placing then specific font into the folder and then copy pasting the name into the text file, and it doesn't seem to be working.

Watch this video
https:/ /www. youtube. com/ watch?v= SgM5oavQnGQ& (minus the blankspace)

Replaced the entire [MeasureWeatherRSS] code with the one provided in the video and works fine now.
The only thing I noticed that might be a change (don't know since this is the first and only time I've used this skin and got it to work) is the skin changes colour when you hover over it.

Started using rainmeter yesterday so I have no idee what so ever how to fix it, if it's not ment to do that. I don't know.
Maybe someone can look into it? :)

How to make the weather thing work?
FourLetterWurdz Featured By Owner May 7, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I can't get the weather to work what so ever. Regardless of code placement, using a w or p before the code, it flat out doesn't work. I followed everything in rainmeter guides. I've gotten it to work before, prior to the last rainmeter update. This time? RIP.
To get this to work replace the old with the new one of  It would look like:

The skin in this year need some tiny fixes, cause the year value cross the stroke of her position in the 20d variant, I do those fixes by my self, and as recommendation which I can give you, maybe you can change the url from the weather with this:…
and then add in the variables measure:
all beacuse to make it more friendly when the user change the weather and metric.

Is it possible to change it to a 24 hour clock?
senjuroman Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey man! Awesome work! I'm gonna test it out for sure! It seems great! One question, may i use the date and probably the weather functions to make my own, please? I'm studying from here and there about how to create my own rainmeter, and yeah, it's hard from a point on... XD i think the date and weather are the most difficult things to take care of. 

Thanks for your time! Nice work! Please keep up!!

Weather does not work. Don't bother unless you only want the date and time.
poomna Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2015

if you want to change the 12 hour clock to 24 hour:

1) find Format="%I:%M:%S" on line 18.
2) change %I to %H
3) save and refresh

very simple :)
hope it helped

How do I change the weather location and measurement? I have no idea please help!
solkiwi Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2014
It would be nice to know what the colors we can change into are. I noticed that the font color for things is "color#" rather than a RGB code, or hex code. Do you have either a list of what colors there are to choose from, or is it possible to use a RGB code or hex code for colours?
thePlayr4 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Hey. I was having the same issue that you were and I just decided to try using RGB codes and it ended up working anyway. In case you are still trying to figure it out you can still use RGB.

Thanks so much for this, my PC is fully customized with third party programs, such as Rainmeter. And I truly love these simple, minimalistic skin designs. Definitely going to use this one!

Keep up the great work! :)

Its a very nice and clean design, good job! I have a question though. For the weather, it says to use the variable "Unit". What does that mean? Thanks :)

sesame93 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013
I would like to know what font is used for this ^__^ I am using Geektool to make something similar for my Macbook, but I need the font :(
sofazen Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2013
After fighting to get the weather location code to work, I want to clarify that a bit.

Into the weather skin the code once modified should be like this one:…
(not like this: "…" which is the url initially shown in yahoo page)

Therefore: How do you get the proper code (SPXX0055 in my case) which corresponds to my location (mataro-766829)?
Once you are in your own weather page in yahoo, you have to look into the html code of that yahoo page for a line containing this wording:
"<div class="hourly"><a href="…"
the code next to hourbyhour/ is the location code you have to put in you url of the weather skin.
(in my location it shows:… .So my code is SPXX0055
and I edit properly in the wather skin as stated at the beginning)

Hope this helps
