NiceTime iWidget Clock

A nice, customizable clock widget for use with iWidgets (on jailbroken iOS devices).

Features the following customization options:

  • 24 hour clock
  • Color
  • Opacity
  • Font (40+ to choose from)
  • Font size

Available on the ModMyi Cydia repository.

Grunt setup:

  • Install Node.js and npm.
  • cd to the root folder of the repo and run npm install to install dependencies (including Grunt if you don't already have it).
  • Run grunt for initial compilation.
  • Run grunt watch for on-the-fly compilation.
  • To build the project for distribution, run grunt build.
  • The build process can automatically create a .deb file. This requires dpkg to be installed (I recommend doing so via Homebrew if you're on OS X).

Installation:

Option 1 – File transfer:

Note: Requires iWidgets to be installed prior to executing the following steps.

  • Transfer the dist/NiceTime-iWidget-Clock/var/mobile/Library/iWidgets/NiceTime iWidget Clock folder to your device and place it in, you guessed it: /var/mobile/Library/iWidgets/.
  • The widget is now available from iWidgets.

Option 2 – Building the .deb package:

On Linux / Mac OS X (if for some reason you can't do it with the Grunt build step):

  • Install dpkg (I recommend doing so via Homebrew if you're on OS X).
  • Fire up a terminal and cd to the dist folder (after having done grunt build).
  • Run dpkg-deb -Zgzip -b NiceTime-iWidget-Clock.

On a jailbroken iOS device:

  • Install MobileTerminal from the BigBoss repo in Cydia.
  • Transfer the dist/NiceTime-iWidget-Clock folder to your device.
  • In MobileTerminal; cd to the parent folder of NiceTime-iWidget-Clock.
  • Run dpkg-deb -b NiceTime-iWidget-Clock.
Install the package:
  • Option 1 – iFile: Open the .deb in iFile and choose Installer.
  • Option 2 – Cydia Auto Install:
    • Navigate to /private/var/root/Media on your device.
    • If this folder doesn't already contain a sub-folder named Cydia, create it.
    • Inside the Cydia folder, create a sub-folder named AutoInstall.
    • Place the .deb file in the AutoInstall folder.
    • Once copying is complete, restart your device — twice. After the 2nd restart, the package should show up in Cydia and in iWidgets.
  • Option 3 – MobileTerminal:
    • In MobileTerminal, cd to the folder where you put the .deb file.
    • Run dpkg -i NiceTime-iWidget-Clock.deb.
