The Weather Box

Post by Alex2539 »

Just a little weather skin inspired by something Dragonmage said in IRC once (and I have the logs to prove it!). Initially, it's just a closed box. All you see are the current condition and the temperature. Also, there's the logo for The Weather Channel, but that's just there to be fair to them. I'm using their feed after all. Once you click on the box, it opens up and out pop the icons and Hi/Low temperatures for the next three days! Clicking the box will send the three days back into the box. There's not a lot of weather info to be had here, just your basic sunny/cloudy/hot/cold/PB&J forecast.
It's like a Jack-In-The-Box, but more informative and without music!
The skin is in the new .rmskin format. This is a new way of packaging skins included with the latest beta. To install a skin, all you need to do is open up the .rmskin and let Rainstaller (by Poiru) work its magic. No more hunting down you skins folder, just run the skin!

NOTE: You must be running the latest beta (v1.2) in order to install and run this skin.

And you couldn't even include the Jack-in-the-box sound. And I thought you were good at this...
Just kidding of course!

Great work! :D
Definately creative and useful.
I feel like the box should have the small side flaps too though...
