Re: Sublime Text 2 Rainmeter package

Post by thatsIch »

First thank you for installing sublime-rainmeter :welcome:

It requires Rainmeter installed. If you did not install it in the default directory (which is C:/Program Files/Rainmeter) it tries to search for it in your registry. There is a chance, that you installed it in portable mode, that way it has no way to identify where it is installed.

Use rainmeter_path to specify where your Rainmeter is installed like in my installation:

Code: Select all

{
	"rainmeter_path": "E:\\Visuals\\Rainmeter",
	"rainmeter_skins_path": "D:\\Documents\\Rainmeter\\Skins",
}
If it did not find it, it should have thrown you an error dialog.


Also just stating the obvious: most of the tools are only available if you are in a Rainmeter skin

Thanks thatsIch

Now I am getting a red/pink highlight (error?) on the semicolon after "rainmeter_skins_path":

It can't save the addition of the rainmeter_pathline now.

The whole thing looks like this:

Code: Select all

{
	"rainmeter_path": "C:\\Program Files\\Rainmeter"
	"rainmeter_skins_path": "C:\\Users\\Morbane\\Documents\\Rainmeter\\Skins"
}
Opps - attention to detail = -1 haha

I added the commas - now it saves - but I still am not getting the menu options I mentioned in my OP.

Rainmeter is installed and I have an active skin .ini in the window.

I have the default Rainmeter highlighting working nicely.

I just feel that there is so much more, if I can just get the basic functionality going at 100%.

The law of averages says what it means; even if you get everything right, you will get something wrong. Therefore; self managing error trapping initiates another set of averages - amongst the errors, some of them will not be errors, instead those instances will appear to be "luck". One cannot complain of the 'appearance' of 'infinite regress of causation', even if it does not have a predictable pattern, only that is requires luck to achieve.

Well perhaps it is due to my not being registered? :oops:

No, the unregistered version has the full functionality of the registered version, just the "annoying" message.

Do you use Sublime Text 2? I am currently developing for Sublime Text 3. On my side ST2 is not maintained/supported anymore.

if you are using Sublime Text 3, could you please post me your console log?

post it on something like http://pastebin.com/

Thank you for your report. I am quite baffled. In the image you send, it suggests that you are using a version at most 2.7.1 but the latest is 2.9.0. I also see that you have Package Control installed. I assume you used that to install Rainmeter?
If not please follow the steps provided at https://github.com/thatsIch/sublime-rainmeter#with-package-control

You should get an entry in Tool > Rainmeter > Color Picker

Also just more steps to verify:
In your AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 3\Installed Packages folder should be a Rainmeter.sublime-package file around 644 KB in size. If it is smaller, please try to run CTRL + SHIFT + P, Upgrade Package on Rainmeter

Hey thatsIch

The Upgrade Package seems to have done the trick! :thumbup:

@thatsIch

Any chance for snippets?

The shortcut meter/measure formats in Notepad++ from whoever are awesome.

You can access the snippets in 2 ways:
1. Type 't' in the document, to show a popup list of template snippets for meters and measures.
2. Select 'Tools' menu and 'Snippets...' for a window list.
