Aptechka  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.3.1
by: d87 [More]
Aptechka is a raid frames addon.

Addon is customized with lua config file
You can place your configuration changes into AptechkaUserConfig/userconfig.lua to avoid overwriting them when updating. Reference config - Aptechka/config.lua.
There's still some basic options available ingame from /apt console command. like positioning.

github

Default config file

FAQ:
How can i change manabar width, indicator placement etc etc?
See the custom skin part at the end of this FAQ.

How to switch skins?
change config.skin = "GridSkin" to config.skin = "MechanizeV"

How to make it hidden when i'm not in a group?
config.showSolo = false

What is UserConfig?
It's a separate addon that contains your personal settings.
Values from UserConfig replace default settings. That way you can safely update core module without losing your changes.
Or you can have 2 UserConfig modules.
It is also possible to add new skins as plugins, and switch between them depending on character class.

Lua knowledge is required?
Probably not, copy-pasting and changing values should be enough for most things.
But editor with Lua syntax highlighting will help you (SublimeText, SciTE, Notepad++). If you want to make your own skin you better be familiar with wow widget api.

What is priority?
When two or more actions assigned to the same spot are active, the one with higher priority is displayed.
Weakened soul is a good example. You won't see WS until PWS is still active.

What is "heal trace"?
That's when you want to know who exactly was healed by your Circle of Healing, Chain Heal, etc in the form of blinking indicator.

How to add new zones and spells for debuff loader?
Instances are identified by map id (assuming they have their own map).
To find out current zone map id type: /dump GetCurrentMapAreaID()
Map IDs are tied to instance name and instance name is tied to function that is pushing boss spells into your current spell set. More info inside userconfig file

What's that combat filtering option for?
Disabled until better days.
In 4.2 all autorefreshing spells (SWP-MF, Corruption-Haunt, Lifebloom, Renew-Chakra, etc) stopped generating SPELL_AURA_REFRESH event for combat log. So basically this feature is ruined until Blizzard fix this.
useCombatLogFiltering provides a huge perfomance boost over default behavior, which would be to listen only to UNIT_AURA event.
UNIT_AURA doesn't tell what exactly changed and every time addon had to scan current buffs/debuffs,
In raid combat unit_aura sometimes fired up to 8 times per second for each member with all the stacking trinkets and procs.
useCombatLogFiltering option moves this process mainly to combat log, where we can see what spell was updated.
Only if it's in our spell set it will update buff data for this unit.
The drawback is that it only works in combat log range, but it's big enough, and there's a fallback on throttled unit_aura (every 5s) for out of range units.
On lich king there was an issue, and maybe it's still present, that necrotic plague removal event didn't appear in combat log
and that caused glitches with boss debuff indicator. But that's a rare blizzard side bug.
Dispel idicators still work from unit_aura, so you'll see plague regardless as disease if you can dispel it.

First Aid Kit

How to change skin layout from config?
So to customize frame elements, you'll have to create a custom skin, inherit default skin stuff and then add to/change it. Easy...
Default skin source is in frame.lua file
Code:
config.skin = "GridCustom"
config.useAnchors = "GridSkin" -- use parent skin anchors
config.GridCustom = function(self)
    config.GridSkin(self) -- inheriting
    -- how to create new icon
    local icon2 = config.GridSkin_CreateIcon(self,24,24,0.4,"TOPLEFT",self,"TOPLEFT",0,0)  -- w/h = 24, alpha = 0.4
    self.icon2 = icon2
    
    -- how to move existing indicators
    self.spell2:ClearAllPoints() -- clear previous position
    self.spell2:SetPoint("CENTER",self,"CENTER",0,0) -- set to center
    -- same way to move text
    self.text1:ClearAllPoints()
    self.text1:SetPoint("TOP",self,"TOP",0,-5)
    
    -- how to delete existsing indicators
    self.raidbuff = nil
    
    -- how to create new indicator
    local newind = config.GridSkin_CreateIndicator(self,6,6,"TOPLEFT",self,"TOPLEFT",0,0)  -- w/h = 6
    self.spell4 = newind
    -- change healthbar texture
    self.health.bg:SetTexture([[Interface\AddOns\Aptechka\white]])
    self.health:SetStatusBarTexture[[Interface\AddOns\Aptechka\white]]

    --how to change mana bar width
    self.power:SetWidth(2)

    --how to change indicator size
    self.spell2:SetWidth(3);    self.spell2:SetHeight(3);
end

This seems really nice.

A couple of questions:
1. How could I disable the manabars without errors? (I want to disable it, not just hide it by setting the width to 0)

2. I'm used to seeing incoming heals in text, replacing name text when there are incoming heals and health deficit / status (dead, fd, ghost) on second text row. How could I achieve this?

3. Is there a way to make buffs indicators for spirit/stamina show up only when they are missing?

Hey, this seems like a very nice addon, and while I haven't actively tried it in a raid environment yet, it doesn't seem to use a lot of cpu/memory.

One thing I haven't seen in the config files, or the main lua files, is a way to handle if the target has aggro - for preemptive heals. Would be nice to have this as an indicator.

Also, if you could add a way to handle the way new frames are added. I like to have my anchor to the bottom, group anchor to the bottom left. Kind of hard to describe, but I have my frames in the middle of the screen down to my bars, and the groups expand to the sides while keeping the whole frame centered horizontally at all times.

If you can't visualize from my poor description, test it in grid. It's under Grid -> Layout -> Advanced, putting the layout anchor as bottom, and the group anchor bottomleft.

Otherwise, five stars for this addon! Good work!

alright.. 0.3
1. How could I disable the manabars without errors? (I want to disable it, not just hide it by setting the width to 0)
InjectorConfig.disableManaBar = false
2. I'm used to seeing incoming heals in text, replacing name text when there are incoming heals and health deficit / status (dead, fd, ghost) on second text row. How could I achieve this?
add "showText = true" to IncomingHealStatus
3. Is there a way to make buffs indicators for spirit/stamina show up only when they are missing?
"missing = true" in spell data. It's possible now, but still Prayer of fortitude will be missing when PWF is applied, etc.

One thing I haven't seen in the config files, or the main lua files, is a way to handle if the target has aggro - for preemptive heals. Would be nice to have this as an indicator.
InjectorConfig.AggroStatus added. (comment it's line to disable)

Also, if you could add a way to handle the way new frames are added. I like to have my anchor to the bottom, group anchor to the bottom left. Kind of hard to describe, but I have my frames in the middle of the screen down to my bars, and the groups expand to the sides while keeping the whole frame centered horizontally at all times
InjectorConfig.anchorpoint = "BOTTOM"

Growth direction added also and something else.

I did remember to update, and thanks for putting the offset and distance between frames in the config.

Is it possible to add support for pets as well as an optional thing?

Thanks for the additional options (any chance of a border indicator?). If you could tell me what to change in the lua to get incoming heals to the name text (text) and all the rest to the 2nd line (text2). I really need to see the name to know who to prioritize (aggro indicator doesn't solve this unfortunately).

You don't need to create an option fo rit, unless you really want ofc, but would be nice if you could just tell what to change in injector.lua. Thanks! Good job so far in my opinion.

Code:
if InjectorConfig.IncomingHealStatus.showText then frame.text2:SetText( (total) > 0 and ("%.1fk"):format( total / 1e3) or "") end
Code:
function Injector.UpdateHealthText(self, h, hm)
        if hm - h > 1000 then
            self.text:SetText(("%.1fk"):format( (h-hm) / 1e3))
        else
            self.text:SetText(self.name)
        end
end
look in these fragments. basicly you need to swap self.name and "" and text with text2

Been loving this addon so far and I'm almost ready to replace Grid with it.

I don't know if you want requests for features, but here's my little list:
- Border indicator (like someone else already posted)
- Text2/Text1 indicator (mostly for a lifebloom counter, in my case)
- A single missing buff indicator for single+raid buff (I've tried playing around with it, but the "missing = true" doesn't seem to be working. Not sure what I'm doing wrong).

Looks awesome so far. Would love it integrated into the interface, would pets also be a possibility to display?

Also is it possible to have the groups grow left > right instead of down > up? I tried moving the anchors, but to no avail and orientation was for the health/mana bars ><

Thanks!
