MiniBar preview by Dariosuper MiniBar preview by Dariosuper
hi everyone, this is a little preview on something i'm working on... it's similar to my omnibar, but slimmer. it suits well with any size of desktop!!! the biggest difference is that this swkin uses the rainmeter @include function, so every part of the skin is re/movable. right now it has:
user (uptime, shutdown log off etc.) control;
up to 4 hdd display;
player control;
system (cpu and ram);
Network;
weather;
Time and Date.
also a central dock.

next i'm thinking about putting:
battery,
swap,
utorrent control,
maybe rss and notes

need feedback and suggestions on other thigs to add/fix before i release it!

Aloha. Nice job! I'm working on a winamp skin for rainmeter and was inspired by your player control design - very minimal. I'm going to include a progress circle around my taskbar player play/pause button now. Keep up the good work!

wow, that's great work!!! holy cow
tho i can't actually try cos i need to know if i can safely upgrade to the beta (you see, i use te @include feature a lot, and apparently they changed its behaviour, ad i'm not sure if my older skins will work...)
i'll try your skin as soon as i can!

Thank you. I upgrade every time a new build comes out pretty much because deviants keep creating skins with the most recent version of Rainmeter, so I have no choice but to update, and so far so good, no problems with @include behavior for me anyway.

New idea: could you put onto the skin a direct link to the variables file? Just for example: [link]
It's very useful.

yeah, i myself should know, coding it i have to go back and forth to check variables and the different skins, so it would be useful to me too. was thinking about a small popup button, bit dont know where to put it, any ideas? thanks for your support as always!

If you're gonna make 2 versions of MiniBar too, then I would use over/below the 'Win' button as hover effect - just as the player. Clicking it would be the same as now.
How's that?

YES! thank you!!!! i'm trying to avoid the "open something on hover" because i had problems with some skins in the past, with accidental hovering/ckicks. anyway if, when i release it, you still prefer it hover, tell me and i'll mod it to fit your needs!
