Rainmeter Bitcoin Mining Pool and Exchange Tracker (PXT)
Version 1.3 - Updated on 08/08/11
*Download Here*

This is a Rainmeter skin to display your Pool data from JSON encoded stats as well as show you current exchange prices.

Currently Supported Mining Pools:

  • ArsBitcoin
  • BitClockers
  • BitcoinPool
  • Bitparking
  • BTC Guild
  • Deepbit
  • Eligius
  • MT. Red
  • OzCoin
  • Slush Pool

1) Extract the files to your Rainmeter skins folder.

2) Add your API key and/or your user name to the "userData.inc" file located in either the same folder as the skin or in the "inc" subfolder.

3) In Rainmeter select the skin for how many workers you have. If you display more workers then you have, the skin won't parce the JSON data properly and won't work. Note: Some Pools don't list worker stats, so there will only be one skin variant to choose.

There are instructions to add more workers and change the exchanges PXT will display in the readme.txt file.

If you find any bugs, please let me know.

Changelog:
v1.0
- Initial Release
v1.0a
- Added Support for OzCoin
v1.1
- Fixed: Deepbit and BitcoinPool not including userData.inc file (oops)
- Fixed: Deepbit Est. Worth calculation error
- Added: Support for Eligius
- Changed: Added leading zeros to each .ini file so they show in order.

- You should delete your current PXT folder before adding this update or else you'll have a lot of old files left over.
v1.2
- Fixed: Actualy fixed the Deepbit calculation error
- Added: Share estimate to Eligius
- Added: Support for Bitparking Name Coin Pool (shows NMC -> BTC and NMC -> BTC -> USD)
- Added: Support for ArsBitcoin

v1.2a
- Fixed: Bitparking balance label (now says NMC instead of BTC)
- Changed: Removed version number from the .ini files.  It was becoming a pain updating 50+ files (especialy for minor updates like this one)

v1.2b
- Changed: Deleted "New Text Document.txt" inside the ArsBitcoin Folder (acidently left that in there
while I was testing it)
- Added: Support for BitClockers

v1.3
- Added: Set of "short" skins that don't include the exchanges display
- Added: An "Exchanges Only" skin that can be customized a bit and shows, only the exchanges and a few stats on the current BTC difficulty.
- Fixed: A few display errors in a couple of skins
- Changed: Deleted all the extra readme.txt files except for the main one.

It looks like Eligius doesn't use JSON data for users, but I can probably pull the data from their web stats page.  I'll look into it tomorrow (it's getting pretty late for me) and see if I can get something working for you Smiley

Razer, could you tell me how I can align all the text to the right and remove some of the data that I don't need (i.e. highs and lows for the day)

You should delete your current PXT folder before adding this update or else you'll have a lot of old files left over.

@kiwiasian: That stuff is inside the "inc\globalMeters.inc" file.  Open it up and look for [MeterPriceHigh1Text], [MeterPriceHigh1], [MeterPriceLow1Text], [MeterPriceLow1] (or high2, low2 etc...).  Just delete the ones you don't want to see and they should be gone.  You'll probably want to change the "Y=" value for the meters you left so you don't have a blank space in there, but that's not required.  (You shouldn't have to change the worker bar settings, those should automatically put themselves at the bottom.  If they do mess up though, just check the workerXMeters.inc file)

To change where the meters align them self's, inside the same file just change the "X=" value.  That controls where it shows those things.  Probably set it to 5 if you want it on the left edge of the screen (not 0 because of the background image border).

If you're using one of the pools that I don't use the "inc\globalMeters.inc" file for it, just look in the main .ini file.  It has all the same stuff in it.  I just separated all that code into the .inc files for the other pools to make it easier for me to maintain this skin (I update 1 .inc file instead of 10 .ini files, much easier Smiley)

Hope that helps Smiley

Thank you so much! This is really easy to customize!
(Using fake numbers Wink)
Can you change it so that the balance displays the total reward (unpaid + block estimate) rather than just the unpaid reward? I couldn't figure out how to do that myself.

Also, I sent a small donation Smiley this is a great skin.

Still a slight issue with deepbit, not a huge one but i dont think .04btc is worth $8000 lol




Also I know this is for bitcoin pools but any chance you could pull the same info for a Namecoin mining pool?  I have one of my miners pointed to bitparking.com and the stats are available via a webpage http://bitparking.com/user/NBoopHYYSixS7FNLZyMqDWDgpkoPFdJFhn (no API that I have seen, not even a logon just goes off of your NMC wallet address.) The current NMC to BTC exchange rate can be pulled from https://exchange.bitparking.com/main


Love this rainmeter skin! keep up the good work.

@EpicBacon: Estimates usually aren't accurate so that's why I haven't included them for any of the pools that give that data.  But if you would like the ability to see that as well I can add it as a option.  Thanks for the donation BTW, those are always nice to receive Smiley

@Iyeman: lol, yeah maybe someday they'll be worth that much.  I just rechecked the code and I ended up multiplying the current price by your hash rate instead of how many BTC you've got.  I've got a lot of files to manage for this thing and I get confused some times  Huh  I'll get the fix out tomorrow with the next version.

As for doing the Bitparking stuff, I should be able to do that too.  How do you think the exchange tracking part should work?  Would you want it to just display the NMC to BTC rate or should I calculate NMC to BTC to USD so that it basically looks the same.  I supose I could do both also.  Let me know you think and I'll see what I can do.  I haven't bothered mining NMC's so I don't really know what stats a NMC miner is interested in Smiley

It's not really an estimate. Eligius uses SMPPS (no-fee pay per share) so the value in "block estimate" is BTC you have already earned in the current round from pay per share. That value will never go down, it can only ever display slightly less than your current actual total (from shares you've submitted very recently that have not been accounted for) so it makes sense to include this in the total balance in your skin.

Also, support for Ars Technica (another SMPPS pool) would be wonderful Cheesy

Both would be cool! If that's to much work then NMC to BTC is what i'm most interested in seeing.

Thanks for the donation and I'm glad everything is working Smiley

I don't really have a lot of mining power either (a single 5770).  The screen shot I have for PXT was using fake stats for everything except for the exchanges.  I set it up so it would show the capabilities of the skin, not what I actually have.  I wish I had 1.9 GH/s Smiley
