Neuron  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.9.26f
by: Maul, Soyier

Introduction:
Neuron is a macro-based action bar addon. It can stand on its own or supplement any other action bar addon, including even the default Blizzard UI.

Neuron is the continuation of the Ion Action Bars project, however, due to incompatible changes, your profiles from Ion cannot be directly used on Neuron.

Neuron is in active development, and as such there is the possibility of bugs, quirks, and rough edges. Please bear with me as I do my best to make Neuron as stable and full featured as it can be; however, as my time is limited, help and support is always appreciated.

Want to contribute?





Theme Support:
Neuron inherits all theming courtesy of the Masque addon. Neuron has full Masque compatibility, and the theming options found in Masque are quite in-depth, not to mention the robust portfolio of skins made to support Masque. In short, you can make your bars look any way you like!

Features:
  • Neuron features an unlimited number of macros. You can create as many bars/buttons as you want/need per character!
  • Are you a keybinder extreme? Use the button storage area for all your macros/keybindings! No buttons on screen needed!
  • Are you a clicker extraordinaire? As many buttons on the screen you want where you want, when you want!
  • Macros the size of Texas! Up to 1024 characters in length!
  • Maul's unique mouse-over key-binding system - where the mouse-over binding system was born!
  • Many other of the favorite desired bar addon features and then some!
  • And, last but not least, MASQUE support!

Graphical Editor:
Neuron contains a graphical bar editor that allows for nearly endless customization to bar shape, size, orientation, and much more! Further, Neuron has neither the limitations on max number of bars nor on the max number of buttons per bar, as you might find in addons such as Bartender4 or Dominoes.

If the command line is your thing, all of the options found in the graphical bar editor can also be set using the below command structure.

Commands:
Type /neuron alone to display a list of available commands, which are:
  • menu: Toggle the main menu
  • storage: Open the button storage area
  • create: Create a blank bar
  • delete: Delete the currently selected bar
  • config: Toggle configuration mode for all bars

Neuron is a fork of the amazing Ion Action Bars addon started by Connor Chenoweth aka Maul, for World of Warcraft Legion and onwards. All credit for the bulk of this addon should go to him accordingly, along with SLOKnightFall for his maintainership throughout the years. I, Soyier, take no credit for the idea or implementation of this addon prior to my adoption of the code in the Fall quarter of 2017.

From the Addon Info. page:
Neuron is a macro-based action bar addon. It can stand on its own or supplement any other action bar addon, including even the default Blizzard UI.
How can Neuron supplement the Blizzard action bars?
Can it e.g. change the dispostion of the buttons, say have the 12-buttons main action bar split into two 6-buttons bars/rows? Or would that require me to create a Neuron bar? (I am guessing the second alternative would be the one, but... no harm in asking I guess )

I just downloaded version 0.9.11d and I'm having issues with tooltips/icons not updating when I switch between Druid forms. If I switch to Cat form from Caster Form my cat form buttons still show Caster Form tooltips/icons but use the Cat abilities they're bound to.

I'm also having a couple problems with using the Druid Cat form ability Thrash, and this was happening on version 0.9.10 as well. If I write the macro as /cast Thrash(Feral, Guardian) (which is how it is entered when shift+clicked out of the spellbook) the ability shows the button as pressed and the button glows when Clearcasting procs but won't cast the ability. If I write the macro simply as /cast Thrash() the ability will work but the button won't glow when Clearcasting procs. I attempted to create a WeakAura to make the button glow but that still didn't work.
Uh...I have no idea why that would be. On my druid I don't have either of those issues. Is the icon issue every time or periodic? What locale are you using?
For what it's worth I'm not seeing that symptom either... still having the other form issue to Moonkin from Cat/Bear but I haven't seen this one and I'm not experiencing it currently.

I bet. I wouldn't worry about it if it's just me with the problem, I don't play my Druid enough.

**Update2: yup that seems to work also. Ugh these druid abilities are killing me. There's like 4 spell Id's for thrash, and 5 for Swipe, some show procs, some don't, ugh!
I think I'm gonna bite the bullet and just rebuild from scratch. Thanks again for looking into it!
For my own sanity can you report back if everything works after you build your new bars? BTW, for building new bars it's best to refresh the profile completely from the profiles menu
I just deleted everything from my WTF folder that was labelled Ion or Neuron and rebuilt a default profile then copied that as a base for each of my characters. I've been working on rebuilding my Druid's bars today. At one point the tooltips/icons did all grey out on me and not change when changing forms but a UI reload fixed that.

I'm still having problems with Thrash/Swipe/Shred not lighting up when Clearcasting procs while Feral spec and in Cat Form. With the Moment of Clarity talent and without it chosen I'm finding that Swipe is lighting up when Clearcasting procs but only Swipe, not Shred or Thrash. Shred lights up when I leave combat if I still have the Clearcasting buff. Thrash never lights up. This is new behaviour for Shred, I never had a problem with it not lighting up before, or only lighting up when I left combat.

New Release

New Release out,

This release runs the risk of slight breakages. It was stable for me, but I'm not sure how it will play with everyone. Please post your Lua errors (if you have any).

Most of the work for this release was on the status bars. You can now have multiple XP bars out at a time, each tracking a different thing (XP, Artifact Power, Honor, etc).

I had to rebuild a TON of DB options for this to work, which is why I'm worried about issues.

It seems like it may have been a one-time thing, upon logging in it's mostly fixed (only still doing it on my Prowl bar). To fix it I had to add a button to each bar that changes when I changes forms and then remove that button again. If locale means which language then it's the English one. I also use Masque and converted from my old Ion settings so maybe it's related to one of those.

Oh that's a feral thing. Is this a new issue or has it always been like this?

**Update: Fixed the clearcasting proc for feral with a hack.
Blizzard has a big bug that doesn't register Thrash as procced on the real spellID, being 106832, but rather shows the proc on some weird joint feral/guardian spellID 106830 instead. The dumb thing is that 106830 is kind of a useless spell, as there is no ability called Thrash(Feral, Guardian) from what I can tell, so why the proc is happening on that spellID is beyond me. I just forced it to check both 106832 and 106830 if there is a proc or not.
I don't play my Druid much so if it's been an issue before I wouldn't know, I only just noticed it today. I installed the new 'e' version you uploaded and not only is the Thrash button still not lighting up for the Clearcasting proc now Swipe isn't either. Again, I converted from my old Ion settings so maybe I just need to rebuild my bars from scratch now.
Yeah that's some funky behavior. I'm certain that I can't replicate your first issue on either my druid or the girlfriends druid. The Prowl issue is a tricky one, that's a problem with the game, it registers catform AFTER it registers prowl, thus the prowl stance gets overwritten nearly instantaneously. I tried to come up with a way to hack around this, but it's really freaking hard as it all happens in a few microseconds. It's kind of a toss up with my current fix it will register cat form THEN prowl, or the other way around.

The second issue with thrash I can confirm is fully fixed. I'm not sure why you are having swipe issues and are not seeing my fixes with 0.9.11e. I tried both with swipe and with brutal slash and both got triggered perfectly by omen of clarity. I even dragged them on and off the bar a half dozen times to make sure it's not a fluke. I'd guess you have some weird buggy saved profile from Ion :-/ Which sucks, I'm sorry

**Update** I see now the swipe issue. It isn't consistent, but I do see it. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Seeing if the same type of fix as above will work.

Nice catch! Sorry for the oversight, I just fixed it and will have a new version asap. I guess another one of my addons had ace console and it was just piggybacking on that
