I was wondering if there is a way to incorporate the widgets commonly found on various websites into Rainmeter plugin. The widget code typically appears like this:

Code: Select all

<script src="https://widgets.coingecko.com/coingecko-coin-market-ticker-list-widget.js"></script>
<coingecko-coin-market-ticker-list-widget coin-id="bitcoin" currency="usd" locale="fr"></coingecko-coin-market-ticker-list-widget>
I would appreciate any assistance or guidance regarding this matter. Thank you in advance!
I don't think using (javascript) parts of ever changing sites is feasible or possible in a Rainmeter plugin, but alternatively, you could use khanhas' WebView plugin to display the webpage at some specific address itself (similar to having the browser on that page in a Rainmeter skin):

Obviously, this will have some limitations in terms of usability as a classic Rainmeter skin, but it will bring such widgets in the skin. It will be your decision whether you'll find it acceptable or not.

If you don't insist on using scripts, there is another way.
