Like the Windows 11 style, but they are not widgets but skins

Ok, sure! I was also trying to make it able to switch audio source per application, like you can do with EarTrumpet or in the Control Panel.
But I didn't find a way to make it possible. At least it seems, VolumeApp plugin is not capable of that
If you know, how to do it, please let me know

Hi, thanks for your interest! These are from Mac OS Monterey,and there they are called widgets
My goal was to make them look as close as possible, so I called them the same way
I understand the terminology of Rainmeter, but I'd assumed there's no difference on how to call them :confused:

Re: Monterey Rainmeter 0.6

Post by creewick »

0.6 version is here
This is a corrective release
It doesn't add any new widget, but does include some performance improvements and other fixes
Download link is in the first message

Before update
Copy your settings from Monterey\@Resources\Settings somewhere
After update, paste all files from that folder to Monterey\@Resources\Variables
I hope that is the last time I break backward compatibility :confused:

Change log
  • Performance fixes
Music and Volume widgets are now consuming less CPU resources
  • Music widget fix
On Spotify and some other players background color of the widget was not updating to match album cover color
  • Weather error handler
Added some error screen, now it's less possible to see an empty widget with no data
  • German translation
thanks to ikarus1969

About the weather and API keys
I haven't expect so many users on this skin suite O.O
(Which is good, actually, thanks for your interest!)
But now we are exceeding Weather API daily requests limit, and many users reporting that they see an empty widget with no data
So, if you want to actively use Weather widget, I recomend you to get a personal API key
You can find instructions here or in the widget, when this situation occur next time
