Android "Minimalistic Text" clock for Rainmeter w/Lua

Post by jsmorley »

A user in another thread asked about a clock that looked like the display in the Android "Minimalistic Text" phone app.

Get the latest 1.4 beta (at least r698) or better of Rainmeter from http://Rainmeter.net

Then install this skin:
LuaTimeText.rmskin

The skin part of it is really simple. You can change the fonts and sizes and positions as you see fit. The Lua script is also pretty straightforward, but you shouldn't have to change it, unless you really want to change "OH" to "ZERO". Up to you, I hated "ZERO", didn't read right. Backup up the .lua file before you mess with it, as an error in the Lua can make Rainmeter come off the rails, and you might have to put it back to get Rainmeter to run.

love the clock, but what is the config change required to have the middle text lowercase at all times?

Edit the .lua file, and look for two places like this:

MinutesLeftText = string.upper(tLookup[MinutesLeft])

Change them to string.lower

Look for this:

if MinutesLeftText == "OH" and MinutesRightText == "oh" then

and change it to:

if MinutesLeftText == "oh" and MinutesRightText == "oh"

Look for this:

MinutesLeftText = "O'CLOCK"

and change it to:

MinutesLeftText = "o'clock"

Save and refresh...

Hey, guys been downloading skins for a while and finally decided to make an account and be a part of this forum :P
Quick request/question would it be possible for someone to make a date thing out of this where the first white text would be the day of the week then month then the day number.

Go here. It is actually easy to get a handle on all the major concepts in Rainmeter in a very short amount of time.
