My first Rainmeter skin. Pretty simple but clean. Includes

- a clock with date
- weather with 4 day forecast
- 2 rss feeds
- a note field
- Access to your favourite 3 searches
- system monitor with quad core CPU usage display
- music player controls with album art display (optimized for Winamp but should mostly work with other players too)

If you want to use it, you will have to do a few modifications. All major settings are located in the file. I added some comments in there to help you. Probably the rss feeds will need the most work, as every feed tends to be a little different.

Let me know if you use it, like it or have problems.

How do I get spotify to display the album art on the music player? And also I've an orangey kinda background and it's not that visible, any suggestions?

I'm afraid album art is not supported for spotify. See here:…

For the background I would suggest you increase the alpha value to make it more visible. In you'll find the variable BackgroundColor under the Appearance section. Increase the last number to make the background more opaque. Possible values are 0(completely transparent) to 255(completely opaque).

Thanks. The comma was included in the link. I fixed it.

Hello, the link to the weather icons doesn't seem to work.

Boahh, das Teil ist so der Hammer. Ich verwende es in fast allen meiner Rainmeter-Desktops. Gerade das Wetter ist so cool mit den minimal b/w icons. Würde mir wirklich auch eine horizontale Version wünschen, wahlweise für 3, 5, 9 Tage Vorschau, das wäre unschlagbar.
Hast du noch Bock und Lust das Ding zu erweitern?
MerlinTheRed Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Freut mich, dass es dir so gefällt :)

Vielleicht mache ich noch eine Version vom Wetter mit mehr Tagen (obwohl ich finde, dass die Vorhersagen nach 4 Tagen eh unzuverlässig werden).

Für eine Horizontale Version müsste man allerdings die Höhe für alle Teile festlegen, was einen etwas bei der Gestaltung beschränkt. Mal schaun, ob ich dazu demnächst mal Lust habe ;)

I want to change te names of days and months. How I have to do it? I didn't find any the right line[s] at the notepad.
MerlinTheRed Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Open the file "" in notepad and find the lines that start with "DayNameSubstitute" and "MonthNameSubstitute". They are right at the top. Change the german words into your favourite language (the ones to the right of the colons). You can change a lot of other stuff there, too.
