Rainmeter is a desktop customization platform. Through Rainmeter, you can enhance your Windows computer at home or work with skins: handy, compact applets which float freely on your desktop, much like Windows Sidebar gadgets, or dashboard widgets for the Mac.

Rainmeter skins provide you with useful information at a glance. It's easy to keep an eye on your system resources, like memory and battery power, or your online data streams, including email, RSS feeds, and weather forecasts. Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and send your tweets to Twitter - all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking.

  • Latest Changes

    - Added WebParser: Added new OnConnectErrorAction to WebParser parent measures to allow taking an action when a site or file resource cannot be connected to

    - Added WebParser: Added new OnRegExpErrorAction to WebParser parent measures to allow taking an action when parsing a site or file resource with RegExp (regular expression) fails

    - Changed WebParser: Changed FinishAction to not be executed when parsing a site or file resource with RegExp (regular expression) fails AND an OnRegExpErrorAction is defined on the measure

    - Added WebParser: Added a new Reset command, used with the !CommandMeasure bang, to reset all values in the WebParser parent and related child measures to their initial empty values

    - Fixed Math: Corrected a problem when a comma-separated, multi-argument math function was used in a formula in a comma-separated, multi-argument option. For instance using Clamp(x,low,high) in the arguments for FontColor=rrr,ggg,bbb,aaa

    - Fixed Skin Installer: Changed the Skin Packager to only allow inclusion of a valid 400x60 .bmp file as a custom header in a .rmskin. Improperly sized custom images were causing visual problems in the Skin Installer user interface

    I would like to rate this higher but please, please tell us up front that the program is a lot bigger and that the installer will download a heck of a lot more that the 1.3mb. I vote for more honesty on the web.

    Been playing around with this & I like it, lots to mess around with, even better it's free! - But as my keyboard isn't waterproof it wrecked it , also flooded my PC room out so beware!

    I've been using rainmeter for quite a while now. Besides the eyecandy you can really boost your productivity especially by using skin packages like Enigma. It allows you to fetch RSS feeds to your desktop, set up calendar events and other clever tasks. This is my current rainmeter desktop http://ratemydesktop.org...S/Rainmeter_Enigma.html Rainmeter has come a long way since it was first released.

    I have no respect for any program that immediately starts downloading dependencies without bothering to first check if their present. Who DOESN'T have the VC++ runtime on their system at this point?? At least least ASK me if you can't be bothered to write the five lines of code!

    Time for discussion.
    What is there that you believe that Rainmeter can not do?
