Daily Inspirations

Post by dethknite »

Been working on a Rainmeter plugin for my Inspirations, and let me start by saying wow! -- kudos to all who have worked on the development of Rainmeter over the years, as well as supporting it in the community. It was a lot of trudging through forums and doc.. but I was able to accomplish most of what I set out to do.

And... I just stumbled across the C# api into Rainmeter and hot-damn... I could have done all the heavy lifting (and several things I wanted to do but couldn't figure out in regex or lua), all within a dll. I just can't believe how much integration is available here.. it is mind-blowing crazy.. love it.

.. I may forego my current development and implement a plugin as this seems like a great learning experience and offers me much more potential for what I am wanting to accomplish, but will share what I currently have -- approx. 2000 days of quotes, 3 different views -- clear / banner / normal.
