Twitter skin for Rainmeter by Bhaal5001 Twitter skin for Rainmeter by Bhaal5001
This is a Rainmeter skin I made after seeing the awesome Omnimo (textItem) Facebook skin. Thanks to fediaFedia !

Description : The skin allows you to see the tweets of user via the RSS link. It's currently set to display the 5 most recent tweets of 3 different users. However it can be set to whatever you prefer.

Installation: Unzip the file and execute the rmskin file. To set the user(s) you want to follow, you only need the username and copy it in the .ini file

Exemple if you want to follow Rainmeter, enter rainmeter in UserName under the [Variables].

Be careful if you change the Update.Divider as twitter can denied you access for a time. You can manually refresh by clicking on the main Twitter icon.

Update - New in Twitter 1.5 :
- Added a link to the icon next to the tweets that will bring you to the user's page.
- Added 2 more skins so now you have the choice of the Twitter skin for 1 user, 3 users or 5 users.

To my knowledge this is something that needs to be done within the rainmeter code.

Alright, rainmeter's been having trouble with their rmskin so I've uploaded the normal version instead.
Unzip the file
Place the folder in your rainmeter skin folder (default location is user/documents/rainmeter/skins)
Restart Rainmeter and then you can select the Twitter skin
Enjoy

To those having trouble with the skin :
You need the latest version of rainmeter to read the file as a .rmskin and the changes to the plugins (at least version 2.2).
Make sure Rainmeter has access to the internet through your firewall software (AVG, Norton, etc.).
Follow the instructions to enter the user names in the proper line.
If you still can't open the file (the Auth of Windows seems to cause trouble), rename the file extension to .7z or .zip and install the skin manually (see rainmeter website for details instructions or pm me).

Also to those asking me to further increase the number of tweets/users, I can't do that until Twitter release the APIs for their services.
I will update the skin when it come out. Until then you can augment the refresh rate of the skin so it doesn't connect to the server as often.

The file is compressed in .7z format. Simply use 7-zip or any other similar software to extract the file.

After extracting, trying to install gives the warning

the file is a rmskin file that should auto install it with the newest rainmeter. If it doesn't work for you you can rename the file extension to .7z or .zip to extract and install manually.

I don't think it work for User1, you forgot to include 'Get=<it(.*)m>.*cription>(.*): (.*)<.*<pubDate>(.*)</pubDate>(.*)' which under [variables] on Twitter 1 user.ini

Hi there,

looks great but sadly does not work for me.
I followed the instructions and changed the username, it appears on top ok,
but there are no tweets displayed, an ideas?
thanks

:iconbhaal5001:
Bhaal5001 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2011
Well if you've got the right username then everything should work properly. The only thing to watch out for is to make sure rainmeter has access to your internet. Some firewall block access automatically.

To make it work, follow the instruction in the .ini file. As for Tweeting itself, this skin isn't made for that. However jsmorley has one to do just that :) here's the link :[link]

I just want one user but seem to be having trouble configuring it. Not a novice, but not an expert either. Any help would be great!

Simply duplicate everything with user1 in it and change it to user4,user5, etc.

If you don't have experience with Rainmeter, let me know how many users you'd like and I'll make an updated version of the skin :)
