Ara Broker XP  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r4
by: Aranarth [More]
This data broker plugin provides an ASCII bar representing XP: ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Click the ASCII bar to display config menu. You can change:
- the pattern used in the ASCII bar (default is |).
- the length / number of pattern repetitions (default is 30).
- colors for earned, rested and remaining xp.
- the thousand separator / the character used between groups of 3 digits for better reading or large numbers.
r4
- Fixed the "1 bubblebubbles left" message issue.


r3
- Click the block to access options. You no longer need to edit the lua file.
- Max level is not hardcoded anymore: it will scale with expansions.
- In the tooltip: added number of bubbles left next to level.
- The thousand separator defaults to a comma if your client is enUS, or a space otherwise.


r2
- Added variable "thousandSeparator": in the tooltip, it's the character between groups of 3 digits. Defaults to " ".
- Added the LDB attribute "type" (set to "data source") for better recognition & display integration.
- Small code tweak in FormatXP function.


r1
- Initial release.

Edit: Spaces for 3-decimal separation aren't the easiest to read for a lot of people. You may want to make it an option (at least in the lua, a simple "local formatting = 1" and "if(formatting = 1 or nil) then" option would work) rather than making people mess with string patterns if they want it displayed differently.
I found your edit rather confusing It seems you mix the format of tooltip values with the string pattern of the bar.

For the 3-decimal thing, I tried many rendering and felt that it was the best visual cue. Im open to other ideas, but I will go hard on them, as most aren't viable for quick glance

EDIT: now that I think of it, I should have added an extra space to separate raw values from percent values
