Egacle
Version: 0.3
by: NitraMo [More]
Keeps track of your Mysterious Eggs and Disgusting Jars across all your characters (per account).

Prints a message at most once per 5 minutes that eggs have hatched on your characters. Will check stored eggs once per minute for that but only inform you once every 5 minutes.

Will currently only track eggs after you have purchased them. So if you install this addon and have an egg in your bag it won't be able to track that one (yet).

Uses a DataBroker display to show all characters with eggs.

TODO:
-Add tracking for eggs that entered the bag when addon wasn't running.
-Tell player that one or several characters are missing egg (before addon installation).
-Stop informing player that an egg have hatched after usage (but not having purchased a new yet) alternatively, change the message then.
-Add slash commands
-Add way to remove inform for a character
-More...
0.3
-Updated time for Egg and Jar to 6d 20h from 7d
-Made it possible to merge old trackedItems data with new trackedItems data

0.2
-Added support for Disgusting Jar (and theoretically any other item you want to track this way)
-Clicking the DataBroker will display all eggs that have hatched
-Will try to port 0.1 data to 0.2

0.1.1
-Added icon and text to DataBroker display

0.1
-Initial release

Thumbs up Feature Request

Hi,
Like the addon! Exactly what I was looking for. One feature I would like to see would be that the time left for an egg to hatch would be displayed on the broker bar for the current character so I would not even have to mouse over it for the current character. I could just glance at the bar and see the count down and if I want to see other characters then I could mouse over it.

Thanks,
Twidget

2) Could you possibly, pretty pretty pretty please, add support for telling you how long other items with a duration are available? Such as the brews from the Brew of the Month club? I am constantly wasting them because I forget to look at them and see when they expire. There are also other things that have a "hatch" date or duration such as:
  • Bottle of Dalaran Red
  • Cask of Dalaran Red
  • Ahn'Kar Watcher's Corpse (from the AN daily and its not spelled right)
  • Jubling Home (or Egg? Its from DMF and its a pet)
  • Certain fish that you catch (can't remember at the moment though)
I think it would be great to have the ability to watch these items too. I've tried the horribly buggy EggTimer but, well, its horribly buggy. Even having the ability to add these items in myself would be great, if you could point me to the right place to add them in the lua files.

3) Would it be possible or efficient to allow the user to add items in-game, assuming they have a duration?

Thanks for your work on this addon.
1) My skill with lua isn't this great yet, so this one is a bit out of my league, I'll take a look at it, but don't expect anything great.

2) Adding them is rather easy for you. Then go to Egacle's saved variables file (WTF\Account\ACCOUNTNAME\SavedVariables.lua) and at trackedItems add the item you want with similar syntax. Or in-game via
Code:
/run Egacle.trackedItems["ITEMNAME"] = {time=DURATIONINSECONDS}
Remember though, so far it only tracks items when they are acquired (when there is an event in chat saying "You acquire ...")
Want to add support to stop tracking an item before I start tracking a lot of items, to not spam insanely.

3) Yeah, I plan to be able to add items via slash commands. Something along the lines of
Code:
/egacle add ITEMLINK DURATION
where duration is optional if the item already have a duration, else you supply your own. The problem is that you can't get a more detailed duration of an item than there is in the tooltip, so when it says 4 days, it can be anything from 4 days to 4 days 23 hrs 59 min 59 sec (or something like that).

You'd want to get in there and get done as quickly as possible, all in one sitting and before the timer expires.

No offense, I just couldn't see the point in something like this.
You're right, but I remove the de/buff from my screen to avoid freaking out when I have it, so I'd like it to be in an LDB plugin. That one isn't a big deal, I only included it for completeness (is that a word?). I really only care about the brews and I'm still struggling through basic lua, so I'm no where near being able to do the kind of things that this mod does. XD

Anything we can do about this?
Yeah, it is on the todo list. Just need to find time to add it.

For now you can use this in chat and it should stop nagging you:
Code:
/run Egacle.data["SERVERNAME"]["CHARNAME"]["Disgusting Jar"] = nil
Pay attention to that it needs to be spelled exactly as in game, so in my case on server Nagrand for character Nitra it would be:
Code:
/run Egacle.data["Nagrand"]["Nitra"]["Disgusting Jar"] = nil

Also, congrats on the Tankard!

Haven't had this problem yet myself, as I am only doing this stuff on one char (afraid of starting egg on alt char and it ending up getting mount before main <.<)

Right, forgot to add that. Will do something quick to fix that, and a name.
