How To Get Data From Server

Post by undefined »

Hi, I'm New to Rainmeter. I Want Make A Skin That Show Random Fact From Anime. The Data is From My Own Server (localhost).
The Problem Is: I Don\'t Know How To Show The Data.

My Code:

Code: Select all

[Variables]
FontColor=64, 64, 64
FontColor2=94, 94, 94
FontName=GeosansLight
FontName2=segoe wp semibold
FontSize=10

[MeasureSite]
Measure=WebParser
URL=http://localhost:3333/shikimori
RegExp=(?siU)<p.*>(.*)</p>
Debug=2

[MeasureIP]
Measure=Plugin
URL=[MeasureSite]
StringIndex=1

[MeterIP]
Meter=String
MeasureName=MeasureIP
FontSize=#FontSize#
FontColor=#FontColor2#
FontFace=segoe ui variable display
FontWeight=700
AntiAlias=1
ClipString=2
ClipStringW=500
ClipStringh=100
HTML Data:

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
    <title>Random Fact Desktop</title>
</head>
<body>
    <p>Her friends call her Mi-chon (みっちょん, Mitchon, anime:Micchon), and Izumi&#39;s parents call her Mi-chan (みーちゃん, Mi ̄-chan).</p>
</body>
</html>
When I Try With RainRegExp, It's Shows The Data Correct. (RegExp: (?siU)<p.*>(.*)</p>)

But The Skin Shows "0" Instead of The Data Like RainRegExp

Thank You.

On MeasureIP you should code Measure=WebParser instead of Measure=Plugin. Could you try this please?

Code: Select all

[MeasureIP]
Measure=WebParser
URL=[MeasureSite]
StringIndex=1

Can you show a screenshot of the log-window (right-click on the tray-icon, select about and then the 2nd tab "Skins". There select your skin. Then post the window please. It could be that there are errors displayed there.

the log-window should be something similar to this:

So everything looks fine - at the moment i can not understand why the meter doesn't show the text from the MeasureIP...
maybe stupid question: is the FontColor the same as your background color?
