Is there a way to set Gotham style to 24 Hours format instead 12Hours format?

Hi alberbrando, I've added this feature in a new PR. Once it is merged, you can control the time format of all themes from the config dialog. FYI: https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-spices-desklets/pull/908

Great desklet, thank you! It just doesn't refresh to the correct time when awaking from sleep. Is there a way to fix this in the code?

Need a 24h mode so badly!

Ok I was able to figure it out myself: Go to `~/.local/share/cinnamon/desklets/timelet@linuxedo.com/themes` and open the theme you are using with a text editor, i.e. `vim gotham.js` Find line 60, and remove the method "to12hours", so your line looks like `let time = this.to2Digit(date.getHours()) + ":" + this.to2Digit(date.getMinutes());` Save and exit, now all that is left is to restart cinnamon, the easiest by right-clicking the taskbar --> Troubleshoot --> Restart Cinnamon. Now the clock displays 24 hour mode ✓

Very good desklets, I loved it! Please, could you put in the settings the possibility to choose the default 24h or 12h for each theme!

Hi, Can you try uninstalling the desklet, run the following command and then try installing it? rm -rf ~/.cinnamon/configs/timelet@linuxedo.com/

Great desklet, however on the latest 21.1 Cinnamon edition it crashes when selecting the Metro theme. It was fine for a while but now it doesn't start at boot, and you get the 'Cinnamon has started successfully but one of your desklets has crashed' message. I tried re-adding the desklet and it will work but the Metro theme does not. Spotted the below in Looking Glass: error t=2022-12-30T12:35:25Z [ReferenceError: date is not defined]: Failed to evaluate 'main' function on desklet: timelet@linuxedo.com/0 error t=2022-12-30T12:35:25Z [timelet@linuxedo.com]: Desklet timelet@linuxedo.com: Could not create desklet object.
