You can already select the ModernGadgets style within the Launcher-Skin.
It's not 100% perfect, but does the job mostly.
Maybe I'll fine-tune this in the future (for example the Fonts).

Good day all.
I can't get this figured out.
I installed: https://github.com/Dudebaker/Gadgets-Additions
I hope it is Windows 11 friendly.

Tring to use BOINCstats.
I put in my CPID shown on the BOINCstats page.
I am not on a team.
What do I put in Host? Nothing? The <host_cpid> from my client_state.xml?
Tried mild swearing.

None of the above worked.

Any help appreciated.

Sorry for the late answer, currently I do not have much time for rainmeter...

I've tested the skin and it's working fine (with Windows 11).
In the past the BOINCstats site multiple times changed their layout so I had to fix it.
But this time the skin and all sub-skins work properly.

Does it work with the default settings e.g. if you leave the default CPID?
You can middle-mouse-click the CPID-field to get back the default value.
Be sure to select the type to "user".
Maybe restart Rainmeter after changing the setting since sometimes the Rainmeter Web-Stack "freezes" (gives multiple errors in the logs) because of the many requests (that's usually only an issue with the stocks/currencies skins).

If it's now not working, then it has to be something on your side or send me your CPID and I'll test it on my side.

Another small update of the suite to v4.5.1.
Mainly focused to use the same rounded borders like the Gadget suite uses since (?)v7.3.0.

Hello,

Gallery unsplash anymore. They are now requiring an apikey. I created one and modified the URL in the skin file as shown below. But the slideshow is still not working. Can you please fix?

Not sure about the slideshow, but an image is displayed in the Gallery Unsplash skin for me (both on load and when clicking the refresh button), since in the original code, it actually uses the Picsum site to get the Unsplash URLs of the image to be downloaded:

Code: Select all

URL=https://picsum.photos/v2/list?page=#RandomNumber#&limit=1
for example, if I manually do it for RandomNumber = 1, I get this in the browser:
Picsum.jpg
In other words, it shouldn't have anything to do with directly accessing the Unsplash site or having to create an API key - at least that's how I see it.

That's absolutely correct. Something in the past I was using Unsplash directly but they blocked rainmeter very often.
So I found this https://picsum.photos/ site which uses the same source but without any blocking.
Anyway, the skin does work properly on my site.

I don't know what you mean with slideshow, but if I change the refresh rate of the skin to 5 seconds, I'm getting a new image each 5 seconds.
Cannot find any issues here.

Maybe you only have to restart Rainmeter, sometimes the WebParser gets stuck.

Thank you all for your input.

Instead of the picsum, I have been using the api from unsplash through the source link. I was able to select the type of query and the size of the image. For example, URL=https://source.unsplash.com/random/460×720/?city

Unsplash does not support the source api anymore and are providing the api through api.unsplash.com requiring an apikey. I did get an apikey as shown in the link below (api as client_id is hidden) but I am not getting a single image. Instead, I get the text captured below.
URL=https://api.unsplash.com/photos/random?client_id=Tbtp**************************************

My question is how can I get a single random picture from api.unsplash.com?
