Simple Weather for rainmeter by SieSie Simple Weather for rainmeter by SieSie
A very very very simple skin for rainmeter. It displays the current temperature, with a little description of the weather. Read the readme.txt to change the skin to your preferences.

Both Celcius and Fahrenheit are possible.

UPDATE: Now with icons.

I love this! It is simple and minimal and white. I'm not good at editing these codes yet. I was hoping that maybe you could help me out please? I'd like to change the text description from "Cloudy" to "clouds", "Windy" to "wind" etc.

If you'll open up the .ini file in Notepad, and search for 'Cloudy' by pressing Ctrl + H. You can replace 'Cloudy' to 'clouds' and 'windy' to 'winds' by using the replace function. Or you could manually search for 'Cloudy' in the code, it's near 'Substitute:', and replace it manually. Good luck!

I figured out the answers to my questions! But as I can't edit or remove my comments, I'll add to them in case anyone has the same questions.

I knew it had to do with the weather_icon.ini "Substitutes=" text. I had edited it but the result didn't change because it was preceded by // which inactivates the code. Just remove the // to activate the code.

I wanted to use the ITCAvantGardePro-XLt font from the rainmeter skin Elegance. So I created the folders Simple Weather\resources\Fonts and copied the .TTF font files that I wanted to the Fonts folder. Then changed the weather_icon.ini code to say FontFace=ITC Avant Garde Pro XLt.

Aaaand I was also wondering if there is any way to use a font that came with another rainmeter skin?

Yes, you could change the StringColor of the text strings in the .ini file, and edit the icons (in the skin's folder) to black/darker yourself with Photoshop or different photo editing software.

Please read the readme.txt file. You can replace the location in the .ini file with your location code, which you can achieve by entering your city on www.weather.com . Goodluck!

I can't figure out how to get this to the right of my screen, it stops a few hundred pixels short and I've seen other people have had this problem with similar applications on Rainmeter. Any idea how to fix this?
