Steampunk Clock Calendar by yereverluvinuncleber Steampunk Clock Calendar by yereverluvinuncleber
As featured on Sony's TV channel - SGNL By Sony Goes Steampunk

** NEW VERSION ** In version 2.9 - The screen now acts as a time machine. As you move backwards through time it will display an image appropriate to the year. 23 images are provided each giving a snapshot in time...

Fixed bug in pendulum position
Licence code added
Menus standardised
Added locking pin

The real changes provided in the latest version are the ability to properly resize the clock, a new day of the week indicator, the slider animation is much slicker, the slider can now be operated with your mouse scroll wheel, reduced cpu usage overall, lower cpu required by the pendulum swing action, many bugs fixed, slicker operation in general, standard 12 hour clock face, a right click menu with plenty of options and links, more documentation and more back end preferences to configure and play with. Some of the graphics have also been improved upon.

This Steam Punk Yahoo Widget is fully functional on your Windows/Mac desktop, a fully working yahoo widget and it can be moved around your desktop looking very steampunk indeed. It tells the date/time in digital and analogue format with a swinging pendulum. It chimes and ticks too. It has full sounds for all operations, has fully working alarms and can be muted at the turn of a crank handle.

It was created using photoshop and an idea from the PC computer game WOTW.

In this game there is a neat idea of time manipulation where the game play is speeded up or slowed down by the use of a one-way time machine. This was done by moving an in-game gadget which displayed a calendar/clock in a very steampunk fashion. This was the source of my limited inspiration. I decided to use it as the visual core of a javascript program and then I realised that I could also create a Yahoo widget from it.

This widget requires Yahoo widgets to operate. Download yahoo widgets from here: desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2…

(This downloads the Konfabulator™ SDK and it has all you need to get started without all the other widgets that normally come wrapped up too).

The Mac version of the Yahoo widget engine is here:

desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2…

This widget works with Windows XP SP3 and has been tested on Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS/X.

This steampunk clock looks jolly nice on a steampunk desktop with Rocketdock using my steampunk icons.

How do I change the clock to AM? The time is correct but it should be showing PM.

Are you referring to the AM/PM display bottom right? -

In that case, you don't - the clock does that automatically. If it is displaying PM when it is AM then you have a problem with your system time setting. The code is this:

   if (preferences.hrPref.value === "12hr") {
       if (hr > 12) {
           hr = (hr - 12);
       }
       if (hr === 0) {
           hr = 12;
           am_pm = 'am';
       } else if (hr < 12) {
           am_pm = 'am';
       } else if (hr === 12) {
           am_pm = 'pm';
       } else if (hr > 12) {
           am_pm = 'pm';
       }
   } else { // 24hr
       if (hr < 12) {
           am_pm = 'am';
       } else if (hr === 12) {
           am_pm = 'pm';
       } else if (hr > 12) {
           am_pm = 'pm';
       }
   }

I love this widget!  It reminds me of staying with my grandfather and listening to his clock with Westminster chimes. Love

Downloaded this and it's running right now on my desktop. Had to turn off that ticking clock though, coould see that being VERY annoying after a few minutes, but that's just a personal preference for me.

Anyway many thanks for the lovely creation that really is very clever. Fav'ed as well.

Toodlepip.

Well, that is why all my widgets with sound have the option to mute. Glad you like it though. Have fun with all of them.

I want install it directly, means without yahoo app. Any help?
Reply
:iconyereverluvinuncleber:
That isn't possible. I'm surprised you might think it is.
All programs need a runtime engine to run. All programs either come with a runtime engine built in to the executable or it has to be installed separately. For example, when you run a program written in c# (.NET) then the full .NET runtime has to be installed first (250mb+). Lots of PCs come with .NET already so you don't notice it. In this case a yahoo widget needs its own runtime, you just install it first, it is small. When done you double-click on the widget and it will install and run. If your problem is that you don't want the yahoo widget dashboard, you simply turn it off once installed and then you can have the runtime running alone, ready for all my widgets and any others.

This is very cool.
Have you thought about making a rainmeter skin?
Reply
:iconyereverluvinuncleber:
Oh yes, unfortunately rainmeter widgets are coded in C and all the widgets I create are in javascript. So they would have to be re-written from scratch. It is a limitation of rainmeter which means that I can't migrate my widgets, too much work, no benefit for me or my widgets.

Do you know if this wil work with DesktopX?
Reply
:iconyereverluvinuncleber:
yereverluvinuncleber Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2012
Well, I wrote it, so I know everything about it.
DesktopX has nothing to do with it, :-) they are two entirely unrelated entities and will work independent of each other.

The description on the item explains all but if that isn't enough for you look here: [link]
