Since this is a plugin for oUF, you absolutely NEED to get oUF.
Frames support moving through oUF_MoveableFrames.

Introduction
I play a rogue and keep the minimap to the left of the unit frames and a bunch of buttons below the player frame so I can easily see the cooldowns. Here's a link to show you how it looks. :P
What isn't shown here is that above the player and target frames, a Quartz bar pops up with the corresponding cast timer.

Please note that this oUF style does NOT contain any action bars. The screenshots have plenty of buttons visible, all placed there by the Dominos addon. Have a look in vars.lua if you wish to make changes to how this style looks.

Frames
  • Player
  • Pet / vehicle
  • Target
  • Target of target
  • Focus
  • (Party if you enable in vars.lua)

Features
Race abbreviation, creature type display, difficulty coloring, raid group number (yum!) and probably a whole lot more I just can't remember. Most of this is scavenged from the now discontinued Discord Unit Frames addon! <3
Limited user control! (read the following section)

vars.lua
vars.lua contains a number of settings you can change to make these unit frames slightly more personal.
All the settings have a comment to explain just what it does. If you make changes and there's an update, you have two options. A) Remake those changes in the new vars.lua or B) Don't overwrite your vars.lua, but make sure all new options are added to your own one, either with standard values or your preferred values. The A-method is a lot safer.


If you have any ideas, bugs to report or requests to make, post a comment.
Thank you.

2009-04-21
- TOC bump (important!)
- Added buffs/debuffs to the focus frame
- Vehicle swapping enabled (now works like the Blizzard UI)



2009-01-26

- Seems to work just fine with oUF 1.3.3



2009-01-20
- Added a pet happiness icon



2009-01-01
- Added combatGlow to vars.lua - Check it out!



2008-12-26
- Should work fine with the new oUF framework (1.3.1) now



2008-12-17
- All unit frames now have their own coordinates in vars.lua
- healthCritical added to vars.lua

Check out vars.lua for more information



2008-12-01

2008-11-30
More stuff, fewer lines of code! :D
- Health formatting is now more sane (20000 -> 20k, 2000000 -> 2m)
- Health percentage also included!
- Max health no longer visible, only current health
- Target debuffs no longer visible
This was changed in order to make room for pet/focus

View new vars.lua for more details!

There might be more changes, but I didn't keep track.

Raid icon is now located at the same spot the leader icon is, but will be located ABOVE the leader icon, should your group leader have a raid icon.

Keep up the great work, one of the few oUF layouts worthy of being released.

One of the best oUF layouts I have seen!
Keep developing it!

Most easily, open layout.lua.
Go to line 297 and change it to;
Code:
if(unit == "target" or unit == "player") then
Then create a new line after line 307, add;
Code:
end;if(unit == "target") then
You will then get 10 buffs under the player unitframe health/power bars, just like under the target health/power bars. Enjoy. :P
In future updates, if you wish to make these changes, the line numbers may not match, so take a look at how the code looks so that you can update it again on your own.

I may add the x-position in a future update.
As for the buffs/debuffs, open layout.lua and change line 326 to
Code:
--self.Buffs = buffs
and line 372 to
Code:
--self.Debuffs = debuffs
That should remove buffs/debuffs from your target frame without too much editing. To be perfectly honest, I've been thinking about just making a config addon for the unit frames.

If you mean they're too far to one edge of the screen, check vars.lua and edit xpos and optionally xOffset. Bear in mind that if you make xOffset smaller than 208 the frames will overlap.

You have a high amount of global namespaces in your addon, try to get rid of those, as they can cause issues with other addons.

The background boxes? They slipped my mind.
Now, as for you, there are ways of asking for things (AND including details! *gasp*) without giving direct orders. I kindly suggest you find a way to do so.

Grimman, p3lim wasn't trying order you to do something. I thought the same as you initially did. He is simply being professional about his suggestion. His statement below should be re-read with that in mind.

As a wow player, that doesn't happen often enough to be an easily recognizable trait in text.

He is himself an oUF Layout designer, and I'm sure his suggestion was purely to help you build a better addon.

Cheers man, and for what it's worth, it looks good.

Is there any simple way to modify the vars file to add a yOffset, so that I can put the target frame under my player frame? (Rather than to the right)

I'd also be interested in removing the black space for buff/debuff under the target frame (like the option you added in vars to do so to the player frame).

Its a great UF, I'm just having trouble setting it up the way I like!

For now the black spaces are probably the easiest things to modify. :P
At the very end of layout.lua there's a block of lines where the frames are spawned. Look up a bit till you find "local tBG = addBG(target, 57)"
That number is what you want to change. If you remove the number entirely so the line reads "local tBG = addBG(target)" it will default to the minimum height required to fit the target frame, much like you see if you look at the totBG and focusBG lines.

Just a suggestion:
Use a savedvariable database instead of a huge amount of global vars, along with a good handler.
That way people can still have their settings saved when they update the addon, new settings are added (as default values) and they can also change the settings ingame.

Sometime in the beginning of next year im gonna make a GUI based layout, with alot of configs that are changed ingame.
This might make oUF more approachable to new users, and make it a more famous addon, in some way.

Early statement though, dont get your hopes up, as im not designing it for myself, and it will get a low priority on my list of tasks.
