oUF Nivaya  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r65
by: Luzzifus [More]


  • Updated for 7.0.3.
  • Only for use with oUF 1.6.9+!
  • If you have any questions or feature requests, please read the FAQ at the bottom of this page first.
  • Most likely coming soon: Boss Frames
oUF_Nivaya is a unitframe addon with low memory and cpu usage. It is based on oUF by Haste, but still it offers the possibility to configure a large variety of settings ingame to adapt functionality and appearance.

So in order to use it you need the oUF core! If there happen to be any bugs or errors, feel free to report them here. However, before reporting bugs make sure you definitly have the latest release of both this layout and oUF!

Ingame Config
This Layout comes with an ingame configuration dialog, which is included as load-on-demand module accessible via "/ouf". You can change settings like frame positions and sizes, portrait settings, use of custom textures and fonts (using SharedMedia), buff / debuff position and size and alot more. Also you can toggle all my custom features and adjust settings concerning the Healer Mode.

Positioning: "Unlocking" the frames enables you to freely move the Player Frame, the Party Frame and the Raid Frames via mouse dragging. All other units stay anchored to those, however all the relative positions can be changed in the options too. By default, the target frame is automatically positioned symmetrically to the player frame as you move it. You can unlock the frames in the settings dialog or by typing "/ouf lock" or "/ouf unlock" (they both toggle).

Of course, if you don't change any source codes, you can update the layout without losing your own settings. More over this, it doesn't use significantly more memory or cpu time than other oUF layouts (currently it's about 90kb, excluding the config module).

Supported Frames
  • Player, Target and Pet
  • Target of Target and Focus
  • Target of Target of Target and Focus Target (both optional)
  • Party and Raid (also optional, both "Grid"-like, party including player, raid up to 40 players)

The "Healer Mode"
There are two different modes for Party-/Raidframes display. The first is a very minimalistic "grid-like" setup, containing no numbers at all. The second one has slightly larger frames and contains more information like health and deficit values. This one is supposed to be used by healers, but of course you can choose the one you prefer. Both setups are shown in the screenshots.

Also, in case you want to use both setups with different characters, I have included an option that makes the layout automatically pick the healer mode based on your character class. You can adjust this behaviour in the configuration dialog ("/ouf"). More over this, the layout is able to remember different positions and raidframe settings for both modes.

More Features
  • Castbar support for player, target, target of target and focus (can be disabled)
  • Built-in aggro coloring
  • Built-in heal prediction
  • Fancy debuff highlighting (A debuff filter is enabled by default, so you will only see highlighting for debuffs you can cure).
  • Options to automatically color health- and/or manabars by class or mobtype.
  • Adjustable colors, textures, fonts, positions and sizes for most frames and elements.

Supported oUF Modules
  • oUF_PowerSpark
  • oUF_Smooth
  • oUF_TotemBar
  • oUF_Experience
  • oUF_Reputation
  • oUF_GCD (Make sure to set a reference spell as described here, otherwise it won't work. I can't do that for you since those spell names are localized.)

Here I'll answer all those questions which become a little bit annoying when I have to answer them a gazillion times in the comments.

Q: "I want my raid groups to grow from left to right instead of right to left / from top to bottom instead of bottom to top."
A: Open the config module and go to the raidframes page. There you'll find an option called "Spacing between raidgroups". For this value, positive values make the raidgroups grow from left to right (bottom to top), negative values make them grow from right to left (top to bottom).

Q: "I have a SharedMedia Addon with additional fonts/textures/whatever and I can't pick them from your config or they are not saved on relog/reloadui."
A: The problem here is, that these addons must be loaded before the layout, or else their stuff won't be recognized. This is usually achieved by adding the addon in question to the OptionalDeps in the .toc files of the layout and its config module. You can do that yourself or if you want it to be permanently added, tell me.

Q: "I'd like to edit the text tags on my unit frames (health, mana, etc)."
A: Currently you cannot change them ingame, but there are tag functions for HP, power, names, levels, classification and status information. You can find them in "tags.lua".

Q: "Can you add buff/debuff/hot/dot indicators to the raidframes?"
A: Very unlikely.

Q: "Can you add [insert random big feature]? I miss it from Pitbull/Grid."
A: My layout is not meant to be a replacement for Pitbull or Grid. It is meant to be lightweight without denying you the possibility to adjust the basic appearance and functionality. I am currently very satisfied with the features and I probably won't add more biggies. However, as long as I play WoW, I will keep it updated and working. Of course, you may always ask for easy-to-add improvements. But I really don't have much time currently, so you should prepare to wait a little bit before it will be done.

Credits go to Seiyu and his layout "oUF_Pazrael", since I used that as a template for my layout and learned alot about LUA by improving it further and further.

I tried this and get an error at line 29 about the function apparently having no 'end' when it does.

Would it also be possible for you to do this for power? Us mana users like to know how far away we are from our maximum.

Would it be possible to color the "mana bar" by what it's displaying? As in blue when mana, yellow when energy and so on.

Other oUF mods and Nivaya

Would it be possible to loop through the oUF objects that Nivaya created rather then all oUF objects when changing the color? Setting the color for frames dynamically through the oUF_Nivaya in game GUI causes other oUF frames that are not a part of oUF_Nivaya (like oUF_BrethrenRaidFrames) to change color as well.

Is there some place to file a bug like this, or is this fine?

Alternatives to oUF_Nivaya now that its inactive?

Very sorry to hear the following from the author of this fantastic layout (on the Addon info. tab): "I don't play WoW anymore (at least currently) and do not have an active subscription. So I cannot and will not work on my addons anymore. Sorry."

So...does anyone know offhand of an alternative oUF layout to this that looks like it and/or has similar functionality? As in:

-- Has portraits.
-- Has raid & party frames (among others) that can be turned off & on relatively easily (via an in-game option or commenting them out in a TOC or via LUA with comments so you can see what to remove without guessing).
-- All frames are able to be moved in-game. If not via a built-in function as this layout has, then at least by oUF_MovableFrames? Not all current layouts work with that addon.

Moving to oUF after Cataclysm hit (and most other frame mods were too buggy to use), tested a giant pile of layouts before finally deciding on oUF_Nivaya. Nothing else at the time contained all three of the features listed above as well as worked without bugs/errors, surprisingly.

So if someone knows of a worthy successor to this layout, I'm sure it would be of help to the many people who have used this. If not, I will probably have to end up testing scores of layouts again.

oUF Nivaya layout won't load

Ok, I give up. Been trying to load any oUF layout with no sucsess. Below is a specific lua error I am getting for the Nivaya layout. Only thing I can think of is a conflict with another addon, but wouldn't know where to begin with figuring that out. Weird thing is that oUF Nivaya seems to be loaded in the interface page, but nothing on screen.

If anybody knows what causes some units in the raidframes to sometimes be compressed to a single vertical line for players joining a flex or lfr raid while it is already running, please tell me! I'm trying to track that one down for weeks now but cannot find it since it's not really reproducible and only happens kinda randomly.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you, I'm flattered! But for the sake of the child, please rethink that idea.
