Mondtholomew - a rewrite of Mond that work

Post by Jeff »

Mond but it work
A rewrite of Mond which fixes all of its' problems

Image Preview:

GitHub/Download Link:
https://reisir.github.io/mondtholomew/

Can also be installed using Meters on Demand with
mond install reisir/mondtholomew

Features
  • Includes the Anurati Free font by default, no need to download and install it. It's not used by default though. Right click and select the "Use the ugly ahh Mond font" context action.
  • Weather that actually works
  • Seamless resizing with mouse wheel
  • Easy centering through the right click menu options
  • Uses the local language format for dates
  • Uses WebNowPlaying for browser and Spotify media info. Can be switched back to normal NowPlaying for local music players
  • Included visualizer!!
Mondtholomew uses WebNowPlaying by default. This lets the player skin read information from your PC (e.g. Spotify) and browser (which can get extra info with the browser extension).

Why it was made
The original skin has had multiple head scratchers :???:
  • The bounding box of the skin isn't the skin size only, meaning any attempt (that isn't hardcoding the X and Y positions of the strings, which the original skin didn't) to center it would have failed, fixed by making the bounding box always be where the skin contents are and by using the built in centering options that come with Rainmeter
  • The font is free for personal use, yet it isn't included for some reason
  • The weather has been broken since wxdata.weather.com shut down, fixed using jsmorley's Weather.com parser
  • The player inside the skin uses NowPlaying, most people use Spotify and want the progress info too, so the skin now uses WebNowPlaying and we redirrect people to install the latest version of WebNowPlaying Plugin instead, which can get Windows Media Session info
  • The original skin is unmentained/abandonware
Over on Discord, we have had people kept asking us how to fix these stuff on the original skin and we got fed up, Reisir decided to remake it.
This remake of Mond comes after the Robux remake, which is based of Robik by the same author.
It would be nice if anyone can enlighten us why MeasureNetworkInDelay exists in Robik

This skin was shared after gaining permission from Reisir to do so

You can edit the skin variables by right-clicking any Mond skin and selecting 'edit variables'.
This will open the variables file in your text editor.
Scroll down to the line PlayerPlugin=WebNowPlaying and change that to PlayerPlugin=NowPlaying.
Change PlayerName=CAD to your supported media player name. See: Supported Players

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a current issue that needs correcting before NowPlayiing works. The buttons do not work and if you select PlayerPlugin=NowPlaying and TitleExtraction=1 it will currently crash Rainmeter. Setting TitleExtraction=0 stops the crash but the buttons still do not work.

The NowPlaying has been corrected. Get the latest package from the Github link above.

For some reason I never got a notification for this, but to do so, go to mondtholomew/Weather/Meters.inc and add Hidden=1 to [MeterLocation], note that the text position is relative to previous meter, so it will go up, if you wanna make the weather text centered to the icon on the left, you should add

Code: Select all

StringAlign=LeftCenter
DynamicVariables=1
Y=([MeterIcon:H]/2)
to [MeterCurrentCond]

Hi,

Issue
I selected menu option "Use the ugly ahh Mond font" context action by accident for the Clock and wanted to revert.

Read Wiki https://github.com/reisir/mondtholomew/wiki/Changing-settings that mentions changing font to Quicksand.

Solution
1. Edit file @Resources/Variables.inc
2. Change parameter ClockFont=QuickSand and save file
3. Refresh Mondtholomew

Hello, is there a future plan for making Apple Music (the new one in Microsoft Store, not Itunes) a supported player? Cheers

Are you sure it doesn't work with Apple Music? There were a couple of such questions lately and the feedback from users didn't make this certain. Out of curiosity, do YT, Spotify and others work for you? Did you properly install the WebNowPlaying plugin and its browser extension?

I have been trying it with the YT, and the Apple Music IN BROWSER, the thing is with the new Apple Music that appears in Microsoft Store. I send some pictures.

As you can see, the player works, in reading that a song is playing, but it fails in getting the name of the song. Cheers
