Clock Screensaver [Alpha Released]

Clock Screensaver [Alpha Released]
So, i found an snippet from Sphere for an python screensaver, using the default skinning engine.
So no more C++ dizzle for screensavers.

I found it weird that there were no nice clock screensavers, so i decided to give it a go.

This was my first python experiment, so carefully opened up the code.

As a result this came out







Features:
- Able to hide the date
- Jumping across screen to prevent burn-ins
- Bounce mode
- Setting a single background image
- Setting a directory for multiple backgrounds (sliding)
- Setting time color

What does not work:
- 12/24 hour (ATM only 24 hour works)
- Skins

Also there will be some skin support so you can make your own clocks.

Download it from Github

Thanks for sharing.

@brantje, why nop make offiial XBMC repo finally for XBIAN addons? I was (as feasibility study) creating alreadady and it can't by easier to maintain of update.

currently is there the ABMEER skin with XBIANMOD. repo installed which currently points to myself again. Even

check our repo repo "xbian-xbmc-repositorfy", you can directly grab the ZIP file and install.

RE: Clock Screensaver [Alpha Released]
ok, let me know then. We will move AMBER to you, you will change the three http:// lines in repo .xml and will run this https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-xbmc-repository/blob/master/addons_xml_generator.py script ( the script is going around the dir where started - each unpacked addon add to index file, will update each addons.xlm file to the data from repo.xml and that's whole story. zero efford and users are just dowbnladiubg and installing .zip for first time, since tghen all goes auto. even if repo moved, stoppedm later started ....

ad the amber you don't need to get from my, simply clone the amber from git https://github.com/xbianonpi/skin.amber ... and rerun the script. the only rule is, all addoins which are supposed to9 be part f repo, needs \ to be inside the sane folder.

I love it Big Grin its the perfect screensaver for me.

Is anyway i can change the background to other color than black without using a image? Full black is the state that stresses the LCD matrix the most :/ .

Also a suggestion if you can implement: Can you put the RSS reader to display along with the clock? That would be sweet Smile

Thks for all the work mate Smile

Background color is possible, but why not use an image?

RE: Clock Screensaver [Alpha Released]
@Exnor,

there is no special XBMC version shipped with RC1 as with B2. And I don't have Frodo anymore to test, but the screensaver (after dependency fix) works with no issues under Gotham (RPI / MacOS). Can you provide "cut" from debug log at the time you hit preview until XBMC crashes?

also what version you have ? at last I posted few crash related fixes (on start, exit, etc).
on XBian Addon XBMC repo should be actual version.
