so I wanted to give Raimeter a go and decided to try and create a plugin.
Turned out to be a "Quotes" plugin (note: not to be confused with the native Quote.dll. This one will bring a random quote off the Interwebs onto your desktop).
Usage: Double-click to get a new quote.
Recommended basic code:
Change the URL to whatever API you want (or adapt the parameters to your liking; You can find the documentation of the API I used here)
Code: Select all
[measureQuote] Measure=Plugin Plugin=Quotes.dll URL=http://www.iheartquotes.com/api/v1/random?format=text&max_lines=1&max_characters=120&show_source=false&show_permalink=false [meterQuote] Meter=STRING MeasureName=measureQuote Text="%1" LeftMouseDoubleClickAction=[!Refresh]
I included a sample configuration (as seen in the image) in the .zip.
PS: I'm aware that this could surely be achieved in another, possibly easier way (afaik there's a WebParser?), but I mostly did it for the sake of creating a plugin.
