AllYearCalendar

Post by Chewtoy »



A revisit to AllYearCalendar.
This time it is fully dynamic and will work with ANY year. It will adapt to whatever date you throw at it.

You can change the looks of it pretty much as you like.
Want a really small one that takes no space at all? Possible!
Want one that covers your entire desktop? Possible!
Want it to fetch you the newspaper? Get a dog!

Anyhow. This skin is a rainmeter version (and pretty much a copy) of The Smallest Calendar.
It's a real neat design!

This skin is written mostly with the help of Lua.
The graphical is done in the .ini file, but all the data being displayed is calculated and done in Lua. So if you want to take a real dive and see how you can mend Lua to do your bidding - take a look at this!

Have fun!

Looks cool ! I'm going to try it.
Just a question, what is the "W14" under the year ?

It's the current week. You can hide it if you want. There's and option for it in the vars.inc

Thanks for your answer. It's a good idea to display the current week. I was just wondering what it was.

Oh, and I tried :
Want one that covers your entire desktop? Possible!


It works really perfectly ! (I have even change the year to see how it reacts, I only believe what I see :D )
Is it due to Lua code that the layout is so dynamic ? I think I should learn Lua, its possibilities seem big.
Great Work !

The layout can be made dynamic in pure rainmeter, it's not that hard if you understand the basics of calcs.
The real beauty of it is that the data changes accordingly, and that is all Lua.
I just went ahead and made Lua do pretty much EVERYTHING (except placing most of the meters, that is rainmeter) just to see how far you can take it.

But ehum... You can have more space in those lines if you want, so it really covers the entire desktop. ;)
