Neon Rings - CPU monitoring and weather suite

Post by bravo-lemur »

Neon Rings - DeviantArt

My first Rainmeter suite, so please be kind ;-) Couldn't find a suite that matched the wallpaper to my liking, so I made my own! I'm no graphic designer, so it's a bit unsophisticated in places, but I'm really proud of the glow effect on the rings.

The weather skin is based on JSMorley's Weather.com skin, so should hopefully be impervious to breaking whenever the website updates (many thanks to JSMorley for creating all the backend files and for assistance with the suntrail, and to Yincognito for advice, too).

Hope you guys like it!

Version 1.2 is now available to download, with a new 'Settings' skin to adjust the colours, ring sizes, temperature units and other options across the suite.

If you come across any bugs, please let me know!

Hi, sorry for not seeing your post before! The clock/date skin is from the Mond suite.

Not a bug but a suggestion:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
OuterRadius=86
InnerRadius=58

[Container]
Meter=Shape
Shape=Ellipse [#OuterRadius],[#OuterRadius],[#OuterRadius],[#OuterRadius] | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill RadialGradient MyGradient
MyGradient=0,0,0,0,[#OuterRadius],[#OuterRadius] | 00000000;0.0 | 00000000;([#InnerRadius]/[#OuterRadius]) | 0,0,0,250;(([#InnerRadius]+[#OuterRadius])/(2*[#OuterRadius])) | 00000000;1

[Glow]
Meter=Shape
Shape=Ellipse [#OuterRadius],[#OuterRadius],[#OuterRadius],[#OuterRadius] | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill LinearGradient MyGradient
Shape2=Ellipse [#OuterRadius],[#OuterRadius],(([#InnerRadius]+[#OuterRadius])/2),(([#InnerRadius]+[#OuterRadius])/2) | Fill Color 0,0,0,1 | StrokeWidth 2.2 | StrokeColor FEFEFE
MyGradient=90 | 116, 188, 255;0.0 | 255, 73, 181;1.0
Container=Container
A better way to glow.

Damn, not only is that a more subtle effect but also far fewer lines of code!

I've used the same trick with rectangles and linear gradients to give the Settings skin a jazzy glowing line - I think it looks pretty rad! Of course it also changes colour and orientation based on the settings selected in the skin ;-)

Thank you so much for the advice!

Code: Select all

[Variables]
SBWidth=45
SBHeight=600

[MeterSettingsSidebar]
Meter=Shape
Shape=Rectangle 0,0,#SBWidth#,#SBHeight#,20,20 | Fill Color 0,0,0,255 | Stroke Color 0,0,0,0
Shape2=Rectangle (#SBWidth#-15),0,15,#SBHeight# | Fill Color 0,0,0,255 | Stroke Color 0,0,0,0

[MeterGlowLineContainer]
Meter=Shape
Shape=Rectangle (#SBWidth#-10),0,20,#SBHeight#,5,5 | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill LinearGradient SettContGrad
SettContGrad=180 | 0,0,0,0; 0.0 | 0,0,0,250; 0.5 | 0,0,0,0; 1.0

[MeterLineGlow]
Meter=Shape
Shape=Rectangle (#SBWidth#-10),0,20,#SBHeight#,5,5 | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill LinearGradient GlowLineGrad
Shape2=Rectangle #SBWidth#,0,2,#SBHeight# | StrokeWidth 0 | Fill Color #ActualRingColor#
GlowLineGrad=#SetGrad# | #GlowColor1#,255;0.0 | #GlowColor2#,255;1.0
Container=MeterGlowLineContainer

[MeterSettingsText]
Meter=String
StringAlign=CenterCenter
FontFace=Segoe UI SemiBold
FontColor=#White#
FontSize=16
InlineSetting=CharacterSpacing | 10 | 10
X=(#SBWidth#/2)-15
Y=(#SBHeight#/2)
Angle=(Rad(-90))
Text="SETTINGS"
AntiAlias=1

The skin looked fancy and I wanted to try it out. But the glow somehow looked unnatural so I decided to look in to the code.

Well I am glad you liked it. And the settings skin looks pog. :thumbup:
