Silica for Skalc (Skinnable Calculator)

a skin attempt on a very cool (currently beta) skinnable calculator program called Skalc by Matt Malensek [link]
Matt also previously made a Skinnable Volume Control called 3RVX, which I also made a skin for called Ignition [link]

The current beta version of Skalc is not available for download, but if you're interested in skinning it or just tinkering with it, you can email him from his website. [link]

I'll try to keep this skin updated if newer versions of Skalc is released :)

// update:
fixed the download link, now it downloads the real skin rather than the thumb image

// update:
holy moly another DD :D thanks abe!

// update:
Skalc 1.0.0 is now released to the public :D
get it here: [link]
or go straight to the download page here: [link]
PS: my Silica skin is already included :)

A fun skin for a cool, lesser-known application. Looks like fun! Silica for Skalc by =aphaits ( Featured by abhimanyughoshal )

Rather than using this as a skin for some other software I would like to use this as independent calculator...

Against what everybody else has said, I don't like it. Having the text larger than the buttons themselves makes it difficult to read and in combination with the very bright/dark background, even more so.

I guess it just me though as nobody else has said anything about this.

It's very nice *looking*, but I agree about the usability issues.

I completely agree with you :)
it does make it rather impractical in actual use,
but it shows what you can do with simple programs if given a skinnable preference :D

Yeah, that's true, it does look good and is completely different to the default skin (I assume).

Man, that calculator looks way wimpy. I don't even see an e or ln anywhere on it. And pi? Where's pi? No calculator is complete without pi. It's just not natural! And where's sine and cosine? What, trig functions just aren't good enough anymore? Only basic arithmetic is worth doing? Y'know what, I don't have to take this. I'm leaving. That's right. And I'm taking my :+fav: with me. Good day, sir. I said "good day, sir!"

No, there are only so many sexy mathematicians in the world, and this one was insulted. And she only eats pie on March 14. (The sexiness of a lady mathematician is inversely proportional to the amount of pie she eats. More pie - more bulk = less sexy. So, we confine our pie eating to one singular day, the majority being consumed at 1: 59 and 3:09.)

Sin(:pie:)= 0 = your score. 2cos(:pie:) = 2 = my score.

Well... I've played with calculators, and to my experience you better get the + and - buttons swapped. I've never seen a - button below a + button!

Otherwise, I like its style. What about something more useful... skinnable text editors (I made a few of them before), maybe?
Reply
:iconaphaits:
aphaits Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
hehe I know, I just think that visually it's more interesting if the + is the white one :D

fun fact: my first programmable scientific calculator has it's custom calculations erased to give way for... tetris :) yes I flunked highschool math :P

as for the program, Matt was the creator [link]
I'm just the humble skinner :D

Hmmm..... Tetris. Good.


I think he can do a better calculator... maybe an all-function program that does calculus, solves any algebra problem, plot 2D and 3D graphs and such...

Well, I DO know it's just for skinning fun. Just a suggestion.

I don't excel in maths, but I just love it.

oh, and space invaders too :D

Matt is still working on finishing the beta, maybe in the next versions he'll add more functions to it :)

3D calculator... hmm... sounds orgasmic

It looks very stylish, but isnt it weird to use 3 different light sources? The first paddle gives the impression of a source coming right from above, the display shows a light coming from the upper left corner and the rest of the buttons has a source coming from the top. Im not so familiar with these things, so bear with me if Im wrong ;)!

On which you did a hell of a job (the layout, I mean).
Good to know that it wasnt me being too critical, hehe!

I haven't gave much thought to the lighting, I think I focused too much on the layout :P

no installing required, and copy this skin into the skins folder :D
