    400 lines of lua code may be a bit overkill for a calendar... but oh well... i think it looks good

    there is a bug that will occur if the calendar gains a line when a month starts on a day late in the week, need to make the background and overlay change to compensate
    -EDIT fixed above in code

    Looking good!

    According to my earliest file creation date, I only started Conky 6 months ago.

    Re: Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots

    I use conky color, now I want it to look like vinDSL's conky. Do I need to disable conky colors or is it basically the same thing and I just need to edit my conky color file to change the appearance? Thx

    Neither. You start from scratch. Conky Colors just sets it up for you and does the work for you. It's not running in the background. If you want VinDSL's setup, start from scratch and learn the long way, working toward it. Don't take the shortcuts, because you won't understand what goes wrong when something isn't working for your particular hardware.

    VinDSL's setup can't be copied directly anymore. He has too many little adjustments you need to make when your hardware is different from his. You need to learn how to use spacing and syntax before you attempt it.

    Here's a small handful of links to get you started.
    Conky Configuration Variables (Above the TEXT section.)
    Conky Objects (Below the TEXT section.)
    Conky Pitstop (Source for how-to-use scripts.)
    kaivalagi's weather script.
    kaivalagi's misc scripts.
    Other kaivalagi python scripts for use with Conky.

    Allrighty, figured that would be the case. Just wanted something that looked better then conky colors, Am just starting reading things in this thread. Haha, I can already tell it will be hard for me to succeed in having a nice looking conky seeing as it took me long enough to finally get my weather report in conky colors, But I shall succeed!

    It's actually significantly easier when you do it by hand. Conky Color is for people to set-it-and-forget-it in Conky. When you didn't put everything in Conky yourself, you can easily lose track of what all the tags and objects do. Put it together yourself, or, even better, by taking snips out of other people's Conky (though not all at once.) then you gain a better understanding of what does what, and how each little change looks on your own personal hardware setup.

    By all means, aspire to get to VinDSL's Conky. And by all means, copy from other people. One section or another that you like. But make no mistake, you need to know how spacing and objects work before you'll actually be able to go all-in and copy VinDSL's Conky as a whole. In everyone's .conkyrc setup, they usually document what does what. Sometimes a little, sometimes it's a big honkin' marquee that says "THIS IS WHAT THIS DOES!!", so have a browse. Though I wouldn't suggest my own code unless you're a masochist, I'd suggest Sector11 for the most examples of Code. He's got a metric ton of code you can nab from. If you want VinDSL's stuff, you need to look at his setup file (.conkyrc) to read some fine print. Like his fonts he uses (VERY important.) and what scripts he makes use of. (Read: kaivalagi's scripts, very useful to all of us.)

    Don't get discouraged! Once you get your hands dirty you'll never want it auto-generated for you ever again!

    I think it is safe to say that we all copy from other people.

    Sometimes the code it's self

    Sometimes the idea.

    Whenever someone posts a screen shot and code of a shiny new addition to their conky it starts turning up in many of the conkys posted here.

    For example.

    My conky is VinDsl with some additions of my own and other peoples

    My lua is wlourf with other peoples code as I am in the beginning stages of learning lua

    There is nothing wrong with copying other peoples work but, I would suggest reading up on conky (there is an enormous amount of information in this thread and in the links a couple post up from this one))followed by typing the code yourself.Manual input of a section at a time will aid greatly in understanding how the code works.

    Do not be afraid to ask question or be a code pirate like the rest of us.

    Well since I'm pretty new to all this, I pretty much have to steal to get me started (offcourse I would like to do amazing things with it myself but that might take me quite a bit of time to do so). Besides, it's pretty much a compliment. In the meanwhile, it's already looking like this:
