oUF DruidHots
Version: v1.5-Release
by: PProvost [More]
oUF_DruidHots is an oUF extension that adds a set of colored box "indicators" to the top of enabled frames to show you all of your current Druid heal-over-time spells.

As a healer I missed the indicators I used to use in Grid. Since I now use a custom oUF layout instead of Grid or Pitbull, I decided to hack something together. What started out as a quick little lifebloom timer quickly blossomed into a full blown Druid HOT timer.

The image shows how it looks and what they each mean. It attaches the indicators to the top left of the Health bar.

There are a few things I still want to implement:

* Some kind of indication when the Hot is about to expire. Iím going to play with blinking, fades, borders, etc. to see what works best.
* Better configuration for layout authors. Right now everything (indicator size, color, offset, spacing, ordering) are all hard-coded. Iíll put the config in a table an oUF layout author can embed in his layout code.

As with all oUF extensions, it requires that you have oUF (the base frame framework) and an oUF layout (the definition of how you want your player/party/raid frames to look) installed.

The Debug function no-ops if you don't have tekDebug installed. I'll bet that is not the issue.

Are you sure it is this addon? When you turn it off, it doesn't happen? But when you turn it on, it does happen?

Do you have my newest version (v1.3-Release) with the new UnitBuff code in? The previous version may have done weird things since it would have shown EVERY druid's hots...

since 3.1 I get massive framelags when in combat. is this because the addon has to check every texture?

before 3.1 it worked all fine.

Yeah the only reliable way to check if an aura is up or not is via the texture of the spell. Insane, but that is what it is.

Give it a shot. I don't play a pally so not sure how it would look/behave.

I think more and more people are looking at indicators like this. What someone needs to do is write a general purpose system.

Yeah I looked. I don't understand the 'k' stuff at all. Could you maybe consider making it use a texture, any texture. My frames are class colored. I can't see the indicators most of the time as they blend in too well in to the frames.

Keep up the great work! Looking foward to seeing this be expanded.

-EDIT - I like the idea of blinking moreso than the idea of it changing colors.
Or something like scaling up/fade out like some CoolDown addons do when CDs are up etc. This could turn into a really powerful Druid HoT timer across all layouts which I'm sure would make all druid healers really smiley face in the pants

I'm working on a blinking mechanism right now for "about to expire" on a HoT. Let me see how that feels. I think color will be hard to see at a glance.

Yes, and I would vote for an indicator, which displays if the target is ready for a swiftmend (there can be regrows or rejuvs not cast be you).

I agree about using color for expiration. Once you add that, I will be done with Grid, too.
