[Suggestion] Skin/meter templates

walkingonthemoon97 » October 25th, 2018, 7:24 pm

This is what Rainmeter should have: an easily seen option that allows one to insert visual templates (bases) of common skins/meters.

This will save a lot of time and confusion among RM newcomers. I would add more explanation but I feel as if many understand the point and many most likely will want this as a feature.

That's not what Rainmeter is... Rainmeter is the app that runs your code, it's not a code editor or designer. What I think you are looking for is something like this: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=21358. Lots of prebuilt snippets that you can use to build your skin code. There's a syntax highlighting plugin for Notepad++ available as well.
