The steampunk widgets are listed belowThis category is for interesting downloads, mainly Steampunk widgets for Xwidget, Rainmeter, Yahoo Widgets and KDE Plasma engines.

So, lovers of steampunk stuff, what is a widget?

A
widget can be described as "the virtual representation of things lying/standing around on your desk". Sticky notes, clocks, rulers,  the possibilities are endless. The goal of any Widget engine is to simplify the creation of fully theme-able mini-apps that each solve basic desktop-work-related needs and generally improve the usability and beauty of the modern Windows/Mac/Linux desktop."

Please feel free to download and use any of these on your Windows / Mac OS/X / Linux system. As of the end of August 2013 over 890,000+ people have downloaded my steampunk widgets, icons and other stuff from various locations, approx. 1,500+ per day now and all for free.

All you need is to download the widgets for the widget engine of your choice. The majority of these widgets are Yahoo widgets and so your desktop will look the best if you choose it as the engine to steampunk with. I am converting the widgets to Xwidget and KDE one at a time.

Need some help on skinning your desktop - look no further than here: Guide to skinning Windows in a Steampunk Fashion 

May I please ask that if you enjoy using these widgets that you make your feelings known by clicking on the facebook Like This! above - or by leaving some votes for my widgets and icons at Rocketdock here . It goes a little way to keeping me creating new stuff for the desktop.

This Yahoo widget acts as a Widget 'AppStore' listing all the current widgets that are available from myself and Harry. The information is extracted using RSS feeds from our respective websites. The three widget screens show the current categories, descriptions and images of each selected widget and a download button allow the selected widget to be downloaded and then installed.

widget-widge-487t.png

 

The widget is using the Lucida Blackletter Gothic font but you can configure it to use any font you have installed.

We created this due to the demise of the old Yahoo widget gallery. Now there is a place for dedicated widgeteers to parade our widgets. When this widget is installed, you will be able to list and download any of our widgets at the touch of a button.

Soon, it will be possible to add your own feed to the list so that the widget will show your own widgets. You can then redistribute it so that others can find and download your widgets.

This is the steampunk clock/calendar

A Steam Punk Yahoo Widget for 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.

The instructions are here Instructions for use are here

* NEW VERSION *

Here is the beta MkII version 2.8 of a Steampunk clock & calendar yahoo widget created using photoshop and an idea from the PC computer game WOTW *1

The real changes provided in the latest version are the ability to resize the clock, the new day of the week indicator, the slider animation is much slicker, slider can 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. In 2.8 - The pendulum animation now uses less cpu and a resizing bug has been fixed.

*1 - 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.

Note: This widget will continue to be supported regardless of the current state of yahoo widget engine support. It runs in XP/Vista/Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS/X. If you have any problems please post your email queries to our contact page. I will endeavour to answer them as soon as I can.

I have to make some changes to the code to allow it to fully function as intended on NT6 systems. Changes will be forthcoming to handle NT6 systems (Vista, 7 and 8).

KDE Plasmoid Orrery Timekeeper Widget for Linux

This is the Steampunk Orrery widget - it provides an orrery function via a truly steampunk interface. Select a date via the calendar ring and click the date shown and it will allow you to view the planetary movements of the moon and the earth. You can use the ring to select the future or past and whilst you are doing so the orrery will allow you to reflect on the passage of time and the true nature of this force that controls our lives. Well, it might...

The calendar ring rotates by mouse control, the date displays according to ring position. The inner earth and moon rotate, the moon around the earth. The earth rotates around the central glow, roughly following the track of the window circular frame. The developer known as 'joker' has used my original graphics and my design but simply enhanced the functionality in respect of the planetary movement and the co-ordination of the various components. A very good job I say... calendar.png

The original Yahoo widget orrery for Windows/Macs has lots of functionality all of it written in javascript - The second version was adapted to run on xwidgets on windows. Next was the rainmeter version - our first rainmeter widget also for Windows. The third is the Linux KDE plasmoid here for Linux/KDE. Each version is slightly different adding/modifying functionality. Running the widget in a javascript engine frees it from only running within the browser, you will now be able to run on your Windows/Linux/Mac desktop as long as you have an engine installed.

The Steampunk Orrery requires the Plasmoids widget engine and the Marble Virtual Globe plugin is also required for the widget to function.  There are full instructions to be found here: Instructions for the steampunk orrery timekeeper widget


This widget works with Kubuntu Linux 13.04 with KDE4.x.
Installing: plasmapkg -i timekeeper-#.#.#.plasmoid

Dependencies :
KDE (Plasmoids) kdebase-workspace
Marble Virtual Globe plugin (kdeedu-marble)

for Gentoo: emerge marble
for Arch Linux: pacman -S kdeedu-marble
for Kubuntu 13.04: sudo apt-get install marble marble-plugins
sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/qt4/imports/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/marble/15/org /usr/lib/qt4/imports/org

Stirling engine image courtesy of Jos DeVink from the NetherlandsThis is the Yahoo Widget SDK and Runtime Engine that you will need to run my widgets. This is the Windows version that runs on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.

 What does it do?

"The Yahoo Widget engine uses a JavaScript runtime environment combined with an XML interpreter to run small applications referred to as widgets, and hence is part of a class of software applications called widget engines.

Each widget runs in its own system process, separate from other widgets and the main Yahoo Widget system process itself, thus improving the stability of the software application as a whole. Should a problem occur with a Yahoo widget requiring it to be shut down, that particular widget can be shut down without affecting other widgets or the main Yahoo Widget engine application."

Which, in English means it puts the yahoo widget dock on your desktop ready for any widget to run.  So, to run any one of my widgets, install the Yahoo widget engine first, then just download my widget and the Yahoo widget engine will run it.

Click the big download button at the top right of the page to get then windows version.

The Mac version is here:

http://desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2x10a50/yahoo_widgets_4.5.2.dmg
Note: The use of a widget engine allows the same widgets to run on both Macs and Windows.

We perform an installation service - so we can steampunk your desktop if you want us too. If you have a Windows XP/Vista, Windows 7 PC or laptop we can add the steampunk widgets, the leather backdrop, rocketdock launcher and the steampunk icons. Just give us a call here

The widget is fully resizable for your desktop. Please let me know what you think of my orrery/calendar. If you like it, then feel free to leave a comment below.

The original Yahoo widget orrery for Windows/Macs has lots of functionality all of it written in javascript - The second version was adapted to run on xwidgets on windows. Next was the rainmeter version - our first rainmeter widget also for Windows. The third is the Linux KDE plasmoid here for Linux/KDE. Each version is slightly different adding/modifying functionality.

This is the Steampunk Orrery widget - it provides a clock and calendar function via a truly steampunk interface. This is the Rainmeter version so, you will,  of course, need the Rainmeter engine for this skin to run. This skin works with Windows Rainmeter version 2.5 beta and later.

This widget is a collaboration between myself and Mordasius (Qeon).  It is now a simple rainmeter skin, ready to run - give it a go.

calendar.pngThe original Yahoo widget orrery for Windows/Macs has lots of functionality all of it written in javascript - The second version was adapted to run on xwidgets on windows. Next was the rainmeter version - our first rainmeter widget also for Windows. The third is the Linux KDE plasmoid here for Linux/KDE. Each version is slightly different adding/modifying functionality. Running the widget in a javascript engine frees it from only running within the browser, you will now be able to run on your Windows/Linux/Mac desktop as long as you have an engine installed. Get Rainmeter here.  

Please feel free to download this skin, trial it and see what you think of it. Please give me any suggestions you would like to make regarding functionality. If you like it, then feel free to leave a comment below. We perform an installation service - so we can steampunk your desktop if you want us too. If you have a Windows XP/Vista, Windows 7 PC or laptop we can add the steampunk widgets, the leather backdrop, rocketdock launcher and the steampunk icons. Just give us a call here

This widget is a collaboration between myself and Harry whitfield.  It is now a simple XWidget, ready to run - give it a go.

This is the Steampunk temperature gauge that monitors your computer's cpu and gpu temperatures, providing alarms and access to utilities that monitor your computers cpu usage and memory. This is a Yahoo  widget.

The thermometer will return valid temperatures initially one will be that of the GPU and one other sensor. However, the current version cannot guarantee it will start with the CPU temperature but it does its best! Due to the nature of the speedfan API it does not return names of sensors but just temperatures, so we have to do some guessing... If you are going to download this widget then please tell me if it does not work on your machine here :

Widget - Actual size on your desktop! First of all, please be aware that this is a widget that is in beta.

This is a widget and you will, yahoo-widgets-logo.png of course, need Yahoo widget engine for this widget to run. Get Yahoo widgets here. 

and the Mac version here:
 
The instructions are here .

This widget works with Windows XP SP3, it should work on all NT5 systems (Win 2000 and server 2003). Due to the extra security restrictions on NT6 systems (Vista, Win7) some functionality will be restricted on the later versions of windows. This is hopefully being fixed.

MAC users! - This widget has specific Windows functionality and although it will eventually work for Macs too it does not at the moment. If you have any problems please post your email queries to me here. Your post will go onto the blog and I will endeavour to answer them as soon as I can.

Dieselpunk/Cyberpunk/Steampunk Yahoo thermionic valve nixie tube widget

That title - what a mouthful! but it is worth saying as it is now fully working! - Latest changes include ability to turn off the sounds and enable the second indicating tubes. It also now resizes. This is a simple widget that displays a continuous time update on your desktop. It is based upon Nixie tubes that were used as status indicators/displays in the 50/60s - 70s. The originals have a character of their own which this widget aims to replicate. 42.JPG

This widget acts as a simple clock upon your desktop and as an extra benefit it is also a moveable bit of eye-candy. It is a fully working widget. Please feel free to download it.

Steampunk Colour Picker Widget Version: ver 1.0.1

Download >> Download Here

phopteron-small.pngThis widget is a simple interface to the standard colour picker as provided by Windows or the Mac OS. A single click on the colour ball causes the colour picker to appear. When you have chosen the colour to use, the widget displays the hexadecimal value of the colour so that you can copy/paste that value into your website development IDE or other tool.

and the Mac version here: http://desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2x10a50/yahoo_widgets_4.5.2.dmg

This widget has really just been given a steampunk facelift as it is based upon the colour picker widget from Merlin ('arry Whitfield). Harry has created loads of gorgeously efficient Yahoo widgets that range from enigma decoding machines to resistor calculators. Harry's widgets are always fascinating, well-coded and do the job, however none of them are quite steampunk enough for me! So, I have taken on the challenge of steampunkifying one of Harry's widgets, the colour picker widget. I do hope you like it.

Retro-computing can be fun and it is in the spirit of retro-computing that I bring news to you all of a superb bit of programming from Kroah (Pascal).  Kroah has reverse-engineered the 1980s classic strategy game Colonial Conquest.

coloniel_conquest.png Why would you want to run a game from the late 80s? Well some of the old games are actually quite good. Colonial Conquest is a good example, this game was a staple of all strategy gamers. It is a turn-based world domination game set in the time of the great colonial expansions of the 1880s. The main players are all the great world powers of the time. The game is turn-based and up to 6 players can play in a LAN or over the internet. The AI is tough to beat and a game can often be interesting and challenging. Kroah has implemented Colonial Conquest with internet support and enhancements over the original game such as bugfixes to the original logic, the implementation of simultaneous turns, preliminary support for custom ArtificiaI Intelligence and the addition of game and player statistics.

coconet2.jpg Gameplay is as good now as it was in the 80s, when your graphics are limited then you need to come up with good gameplay. This is what makes some retro games playable to this day. When I want to relieve myself of some stress I find that running colonial conquest is a really efficient  relaxation method. The game is an advance on the old game-staple 'Risk' and in the complexity stakes sits somewhere between Risk and Diplomacy. If you play a quiet game subverting neutral countries and avoiding conflicts with your neighbours, you can prevent war breaking out and play a quiet game of building up your defences until you are stabbed in the back by a jealous super-power. You can set out from the start building up a beligerent and bellicose war policy and attack your neighbours as you see fit, though this may mean you leave the game early. The game is fun and if you have never played it before, like turn-based strategy games then you will enjoy colonial conquest. If you haven't tried retro games then this is a good place to start. If like me, you remember staying up late to play CC on your Atari 512ST with your teenage mates then try Kroah's downloads page and grab yourself some nostalgia.
