Omnimo Two Year Anniversary by fediaFedia Omnimo Two Year Anniversary by fediaFedia
Today marks a two year anniversary since we released Omnimo (in 2010)


As much as we wanted to release Omnimo 5 today, there is still far too much work to be done. Mine and Xyrfo's studies really take up a lot of our free time, so it's quite difficult to keep working every day when you need to learn one or two programming languages for school.

Still, we've made major progress in the last few weeks. Almost everything is done, we just need to test everything properly, fix some UI consistency problems and figure out what kind of themes to offer for new users (the 150px vs 120px question). You can expect it soon :)

Meanwhile, I'd like to present you some interesting facts about this project. Having worked for so long, we never really bothered to count how many Panels there are. "Hundreds of Panels" is a pretty vague description, so here are the hard facts about Omnimo (5.0), to give you an idea of how big this project really is:

:bulletgreen: There are ~555 Panels in total including variants (as seen in the preview)
:bulletgreen: About 150 Text Items including variants
:bulletgreen: Almost 6000 Files
:bulletgreen: ~167934 lines of code according to Xyrfo, with an average of 198 lines per item.

Now this might sound frightening, (in fact, some users tried to delete components from Omnimo, breaking it in the process, because they thought it's too much). But the default installation takes up approximately 25MB, if you combine that with InstalledPanels, it will be around 60MB. That's really not much by today's standards. In comparison, the default Windows 8 Start screen tiles take up 523 MB

Also one interesting fact about Omnimo is that it's one of the most optimized Rainmeter suites ever. Only a tiny percentage of Panels have an Update of 1 second (mostly resource monitoring ones, the irony), while all others have greatly increased update times, meaning that most of the time, your CPU usage should be at 0, and maybe only once a few minutes would jump to 01-02. Performance conservation is extremely important to us, especially since I have a laptop with a 1.1GHz CPU :O

One other thing: We may or may not have a beta testing phase. You can volunteer if you want, and we may, or may not let you test Omnimo 5 early ;)

Check mines too ! They are the first piece from what is meant to be the greatest (in both number and quality) metro tiles collection from DA

Ive started to metronize all the cool software icons out there. Ill make them systematically, releasing big pack for each software category. Ive started "bashfully" with 3D software field. They came out awesome and ultimate quality Check them here [link]

Now Im focused on Office , Productivity, OCR, Desktop publishing stuff

Great, but we're doing actual functional Live Tiles, not just icons.

From what I see in the screenshot there are lots of "static" tiles as well. What is Omnimo?

Awesome work!

A few questions though: are the panels going to "push in" as they do in Windows 8 when you click on them? Also, will you be able to align them into columns of 2 icons in row per column, again, like in Windows 8? :D

:iconfediafedia:
fediaFedia Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
Well, I'm not quite sure about the 'pushing' part, I'll have to do some tests with that first. But most likely not as that would be a performance issue. Omnimo panels already have a hover color. As for columns, sure, unlike Windows 8, Omnimo panels can be freely rearranged as you desire.

i honestly think this is better than windows 8. i mean sure windows 8 is more of a live tile experience with widgets, but i mean having the desktop and "start" menu/screen so seperate is a bad idea. i think they shoulda looked at this, and realized... "wow we can just use windows 7 and make the icons used on the desktop live tiles"


i dont personally use omnimo but great job to everyone involved in making it.

heh, I think i'll design a better one. I want to do something like this: [link] But lack the photoshop knowledge. Will have to figure that out later.

I wouldn't mind a poster like this too, being one of the authors and everything :D
If I could print one, I'd send one to Xyrfo so he could throw it somewhere in the closet..

Beta testing isn't about getting the stuff early, but rather doing specified tasks and quality assurance.
