Android 4.0 Gmail |  v1.5 by KreDoc Android 4.0 Gmail |  v1.5 by KreDoc
UPDATE! Android 4.0 Gmail has been updated to the latest changes of my gmail skins. Now it features customizable DateFormat, and all bugs have been fixed (that I know of). Open the .ini for instructions.

Rainmeter 2.4 beta r1598 is required.

--------------------------------------

Ever since I posted "My First dA Rainmeter Desktop", I wanted to release my first "original" skins, the Google Calendar and the Gmail widgets. Now, after more than a year, and a ton of Rainmeter knowledge, I finally did. :)

Android Gmail skin is here, internally redesigned and completely re-written from scratch, using all the latest Rainmeter impovements and abilities.

For those that are wondering, Google Calendar skin is never going to be released, as it is deprecated and Google has done an awful job with the GCalendar Feed, tighting up our hands about it. Visit Rainmeter forums for more information, if you 're interested on the story.

Huge credits go to everyone in the Rainmeter Community, but I should really thank JSMorley and Kaelri, who stood by my side as I was learning to code .lua and/or Rainmeter itself, and who provided many of the code included.

Requirements: Rainmeter 2.4 beta

Instructions:
  1. Install the .rmskin package
  2. Right Click --> Edit the skin to set up your Gmail Credentials (required) and to change the provided options (optional)
  3. Save and refresh the skin
  4. Enjoy.

Hey, I use your Gmail skin on many of my edited skins :) I changed the cakcground for this one setup and I'm having trouble displaying it right, for some reason at the bottom there's an area which stays transparent, any idea what causes this? :( Thanks

I had the same problem.  Turned out to be my 2-step Authentication.  Go to your Google Account Settings -> Security -> 2-Step Verification -> App Specific Passwords -> Manage/Create.

This looks amazing! However, I'm a little concerned about storing my mail password *in plain text* in the configuration file. It's incredibly easy for someone to just right-click, edit and grab my password. Is it possible for you to add some way to prompt for a password rather than store it in the .ini? I know the InputText plugin supports password input.

The correct filename of the file is "Android 4.0 Gmail (JSMorley™).lua". I didn't imagine that the "TM" part would be a problem in some systems. How familiar are you with Rainmeter? Try to extract the skin, and install it manually, renaming the file if you need to. Just make sure that you rename it in the [mLuaScript] section, (ScriptFile="Android 4.0 Gmail (JSMorley™).lua").
This could be a Rainmeter-side problem as well, so take the time and post it in the Rainmeter forums as well, so the guys there have a chance to fix it, if it needs to be.

This is the first report over that problem, so I guess it's a rare uncombatibility with your system and special characters ("TM").

Awesome Skin!

Any chance you could make it so the user could choose how many messages are displayed?

Maybe even make it scaleable so it will fit in with the width of other Rainmeter skins?

These are some very good thoughts. :) When I finish my exams, I will take a look into them to see how plausible they are. The first is certainly doable. I will notify you in case of any updates. :)

This is a beautiful skin. Nice job. One thing though: how would I go about swapping the position of the month and day? I'd prefer seeing month first, then day. I've been peeling through the config files and I'm having trouble figuring out how to accomplish this.

You are right, I had completely forgotten that some parts of the world read the date differently. A huge internal update is on its way, and this option will be included. Thank you for noticing.

I just saw your second comment, I'm glad you sorted that out. In case you want to do it through the skin's options, download the latest version. It includes some bugfixes, too.

Hey, love the visuals and the idea but it's not working for me. I simply impute all the needed information, running the latest Rainmeter beta and yet it doesn't load. Possible beta problem?

KreDoc Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012
Thanks. It runs with the latest Rainmeter beta on my half, with some bugs. An update is on its way, but until that comes, could you open the Rainmeter About window and check if there are any errors on the log?

KreDoc Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012
Thanks! I'm glad that you like it. What do you mean by theme? a Rainmeter theme? As the license says, you are free to re-share it if you want (non commercially), but I would be grateful if you could just link back to this page, instead of .zipping it inside an archive. Then the end user would know where to get the latest version and ask for help. If you 're talking about a mod, then you can of course include it where you like. All I would ask is credit. :)

Been looking for a good gmail reader, sad that the gcal wont be released since I have been looking for a good gcal reader. Still like the way they look. Thanks.

Following what I said in the above comment, the google calendar feed isn't helpful in producing a working Gcal reader, unfortunately. I would love a functional gcal on my desktop, too. Thank you :)
