is a lightweight plugin for Notepad++ that was designed to help users highlight syntax for
INI skin files. This plugin also includes an optional automatic completion feature that can be turned on or off depending on your needs.
It is worth mentioning that before you can install this plugin on your computer, you should have the host application (in this case
) installed beforehand. If Notepad++ is running at the time you want to install the extension, you will be prompted to close it so that the setup can resume its process.
This extension enables you to refresh the Rainmeter skin file you’re currently editing in real-time. You just need to open a supported skin INI file in Notepad++, navigate to the “Plugins” menu, “Rainlexer” submenu and select the “Refresh Skin” option. The file should be immediatelly updated if it’s active in Rainmeter.
You can also choose to customize certain colors while editing the INI skin file by navigating to the “Settings” menu and selecting the “Style Configurator” option. It is possible to change colors for user variables, comments, sections, defaults, variables, values, bangs, invalid values and options, depending on your preferences.
