Vark for Rainmeter by toastbrotpascal Vark for Rainmeter by toastbrotpascal
download the skin here!

This is Vark, a collaboration between ~theumad and me :)
As you can see, here's no download link, so go head over to the "real" deviation and please fav and comment on this one, instead of mine.

Thanks in advance :)

;===== Now some words about Vark =====

Theumad actually had a similar idea to have a textual-icon dock in Rainmeter and already released it when I got the idea myself.
So we teamed up to realize our ideas together.

Now, the problem with all the textual icons is, that although some icon-creators put more than 200 of them in a package, you still have some programs that's not in there.

And let's face it: the icons are just text. So, why not create it in Rainmeter?
But there was one problem:
Rainmeter doesn't offer the possibility to have as many shortcuts as you want. There's always some kind of limit.

So, we got the idea to make a program that actually creates Rainmeter-skins, to give the user the possibility to have an totally unlimited amount of shortcuts.

As we use Rainmeter, we also put in some Measure-like skins for CPU, RAM and all that stuff, as it kinda makes sense.

Then we just added some configure-skin to make sure everyone can use Vark without editing some .ini first and put in neat stuff like a transparent bar (which automatically resizes if you change the font-size via the configure-skin, btw) and the great RainRBG program from JSMorley and GetWeatherCode by poiru, so it's even more easy to get this things done.

Vark may look like a simple skin, but it's a lot of work in detail. And btw: I hope the preview doesn't look that bad. Go check out my beach-shot and you'll see how it looks on a real desk :)

hey, I LOVE YOUR SKIN!!

is there anyway for me to add a background to each icon that is created and it gets highlighted when your hover your mouse over it?
so like how the writing for the top word highlights, the background highlights instead.

Kind Regards in advance,
Sim
