If somebody is distributing his skin via Github (later on maybe other providers) you should be able to install it directly via Sublime Text 3. A general use case can be:

  • You are developing a skin which requires a specific functionality
  • You see another skin which has this
  • This skin is provided via Github
  • You want to "introspec" his skin

I suggest something like:

Tools > Rainmeter > Add Skin via Github link...

which opens an input field and where you can enter copy paste the link into.

Pitfalls might be cases, where poeple copy paste the wrong link like the git link.

A consideration is, if git is present in the environment I could clone the repository which enables automatic checks for new updates.

After the installation is successful, we need to refresh rainmeter to load the skins. Not sure if should directly display it? Probably not.

Finished installation via local folder. Had some rough edge cases which should be fixed by now
