That being said, these scripting methods, while doing what it has been requested, are relatively difficult to grasp for regular users. The interesting thing is that even power users / developer types like element weren't interested in them and prefer to push the feature into Rainmeter itself, which is a bit strange, given that the methods do accomplish what it was needed for them to accomplish. But then, besides the ability to do the job, simplicity is also a criteria for folks choosing one method over another...

Yes, I agree it needs to simple and as straightforward as possible.
I created simplified template generator methods and posted more details...

Good idea, to post it in the Tips & Tricks section. :thumbup: I'll have to think about doing this in Rainmeter code as well, just for the sake of an alternative (this is not to say that you should do this too, by the way - it's just a thought of mine).
