Simply Nova by Nova-7-Sev-dd Simply Nova by Nova-7-Sev-dd
SimplyNova is an old skin of mine (my first as a matter of fact). After being voted Skin of the Month on the Rainmeter group it has gained nearly 500,000 downloads through out all the sites it's currently on and is used in many different ways by Rainmeter users, admins and teachers.

I have gone through all the code and corrected mistakes (always an ongoing process though), got rid of unneeded code, added comments through all files and much more. There are a few changes from the original - better link icons (which as of yet still need some work to allow for icons that you'll actually want/need as users.

I love seeing what people do with these skins - so if you use it please shoot me a message with a link. I don't care what you do with it - just like to see the different uses :)

All updates and pertinent information about this skin are now located in one of my journal entries due to a long list of items. Get it here: SimplyNova UPDATES Journal

There was an extra '=' sign in the 'Password' field above the 'Measures' section that prevented the email new messages from showing correctly. Deleted it to correct the problem :).

Otherwise, extremely great design. Look forward to learning Lua and making some skins myself.

I did that and it still isn't working. Any ideas? I've tried refreshing it and saving it over again multiple times, and it's still not working

Hi there, I'm currently using this skin and have set up my gmail account. The problem is it does not show the number of emails, something like ", new Emails".

Thanks in advance!

Is it possible for me to change the seperation between the two time values and the Am/Pm? i changed the font to fit with my other themes and its too cramped but I really like the clock

Yeah that wouldn't be a problem at all. You'll want to go ahead and right click > edit skin and play with the X,Y numbers to get the desired spacing. I'm assuming you want it spaced from right to left so the X #'s are the only ones you really need to play with.

Would it be possible to add a icloud email counter underneath the gmail.

I tried to do it manually but it didn't work :( icloud is my main :( but I use both.
