NinjaPanel  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v50001-1.0.0
by: Cladhaire [More]

NinjaPanel... so sneaky you'll hardly know it's there

What is NinjaPanel?

NinjaPanel is a simple, easy-to-configure display for LDB data objects. If you're not familiar with LDB, it's a simple standard that addon authors can use to provide information to other addons without needing to write any code specifically for them. This is helping to break the fubar/titan stronghold by providing a standard flexible enough to let any addon display the information.

Okay, so what does it do?

NinjaPanel will display any LDB plugins you have installed. Currently it displays all of them, although options are forthcoming to disable the display for certain plugins. It also can provide you quick access to addon options and other configurations via "launchers", simple icons that sit on the panel. Most addons that provide minimap icons (which we all hate) also provide launchers. All plugins can be dragged around the panel to re-order them, so they're displayed exactly as you'd like them to be.

Where are the options?

There aren't currently many configuration options for this addon other than the ability to enable or disable specific plugins, but I wanted to get a release out to get some feedback from the community. You can expect the following options to be implemented at some point:
  • Display the panel on the top, bottom, left or right of the screen
  • Change the height/width of the panel
  • Customize data objects to hide the icon, text, etc.

So where do I get plugins?


You may be surprised at how many addons already provide some sort of LDB data object, but if you're looking for new ones to try out you can check the category listings at your favorite addon site:How did you manage to get TomTom Crazy Arrow in the panel

NinjaPanel introduces support for icon colors and coordinates using the following fields in the LDB data object:

iconR - The red component value of the color
iconG - The green component value of the color
iconB - The blue component value of the color
iconCoords - A table containing the texCoords to be set on the icon

I will soon expand iconCoords to support the 8-value version, as well as iconRotate to support arbitrary rotations using the new API.

These features are used in the latest version of TomTom to allow you to display the crazy arrow in NinjaPanel.

Anything else?

Please feed free to leave any suggestions or feedback! I'm interested to see what the community would like to see in a panel addon that I can easily provide.

Thanks for using my addons!

So far I am really liking NinjaPanel, I have used several LDB display addon's (fortress, SBC, Button Bin) but none have given me a fubar like bar which is what I have been after.

So far I have run into two bug's. One is that ZOMGBuffs is not being displayed in NinjaPanel but it is being displayed in fortress (even with fortress disabled) and the second one is Broker QuestHelper I am having difficulty dragging it into new positions (on one toon every time I click and drag it, it moves one spot to the right while on another I could only move it one spot at a time).

Edit. ZOMGBuffs is now showing but it only has the icon and Waiting.... next to it.

I use the same one. I don't think he's updating on WI. There's an update on Curse today that fixes the "Loading..." text.

You are missing the part where I clearly state in the addon description that the addon does not currently have any configuration options.

I don't have much of a problem offering more than one panel.. it just requires a bit of working to ensure you can drag plugins from one panel to another. I don't suspect that will be terribly difficult, just will require time for me to code the other four panels. Thanks for the feedback!

Are you asking for smart sorting? If so, it just sorts the plugins by name, but you can place things wherever you want in the panel.

It's different, and you really would have to download it for yourself. There may be features in Titan or FuBar that you consider absolutely vital that don't exist in NinjaPanel.. but then again there may be 1,000 features in those addons that you plain don't use and don't care about. The point/moral of the story is that NinjaPanel will continue to be a lightweight alternative to those addons that works specifically with LDB plugins instead of forcing you to use Titan or FuBar specific plugins.
