Aptechka  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.4.0
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.

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

A couple other things I've noticed since the update:

Tooltips don't show up in combat any more even with
Code:
config.mouseoverTooltip = "always"
HoTs don't seem to be counted in the incoming heals.

Shaman's earth shield doesn't seem to update properly either, the stacks rarely update and the timer is sometimes off ( though it was this way before 2.0 ).

config.mouseoverTooltip was removed, but you really need to see tooltip in combat then you can remove "if UnitAffectingCombat("player") then return end" line

hots are always included, but there's a 3000 incoming heal threshold

Err, don't have a shaman to see for myself, but i think it's maybe because SPELL_AURA_REMOVED_DOSE combat log event isn't fired for earth shield. I've seen this before for some spells. Try config.useCombatLogFiltering = false.

With the HoTs always included is that if there is a direct heal incoming? For example if I damage myself in Dalaran and then cast a renew I see the deficit health but nothing incoming from the renew. Or is this intended? ( I have two health texts btw, one for deficit health and the other for incoming heals, nothing shows up in the incoming heals slot unless a direct heal is enroute )

yes, if overall incoming healing value is more than 3000 it will become visible
Well, probably i should include option to change this value

Ok, I'm a bit confused on the new anchoring system. Before, I'd had:

Code:
config.unitGrowth = "TOP"
config.groupGrowth = "LEFT"
config.anchorpoint = "BOTTOMRIGHT"
Now upon updating to the latest version, the anchor point is all messed up. Reading through some of the posts here, I've tried this:

Code:
config.unitGrowth = "TOP"
config.groupGrowth = "LEFT"
config.anchorpoint = "BOTTOMRIGHT"
config.useAnchors = "GridSkin"
config.useGroupAnchors = false
config.anchorpoint = "BOTTOMRIGHT"
But still the anchor is on the left.

hi again d87, please can I ask you something, the icon is set to (alpha) which is nice, but for me I set it to icon(1) because I like to see icon so clear, but the name is writtin above the icon which I don't like, because it kind of dimenish the sight of what type of icon is that for me because I have my grid smaller for my liking.

in the old Grid that I use, the icon is above the name, how can I do this, thanks.

simply great. spent the last hour reading all the comments and i gotta say this is hands down the best raidframe one can get.

i question though:

is it possible to have a health color gradient from green (100%) to red (0% health). i know how its done in ouf, but my lua knowledge is not that extensive.

i figured how to resize the frames according to my class, and have indicators show only for relevant toons but i wanna end up having sth like gradient colored for my healers at like 60 height / 40 width with indicators and smaller classcolored frames with only aggro border showing when tanking on my protwarrior.

any help is appreciated

You can add sth like this to your userconfig:

Code:
self.raidicon:SetWidth(20); 
self.raidicon:SetHeight(20);
self.raidicon:SetPoint("CENTER",self.spell3,"TOPLEFT",-12,-16)
self.raidicon:SetAlpha(0.9)
self.raidicon:SetFrameLevel(6)
This is taken from my config. It resizes and centers the raidicon and puts it above the text.

Vehicle...

For some strange reason my color won't be changed if I enter a vehicle.
The health and manavalues are from the vehicle but the unit is shown in classcolor.

This is very frustrating for units that can't be healed (e.g. the abomination at the Putricide-fight).

Thanks alot, i wasn't talking about the raidicon actually, I was speaking on the middle icon, you know the one that shows shieldwall icon or some PvE icons in the middle of the grid, I want it on top of the Name itself, thats all

Now upon updating to the latest version, the anchor point is all messed up.
i finished what i started back then, so now anchorpoint is automatically generated based on growth directions, if not specified manually
https://github.com/rgd87/Aptechka

but the name is writtin above the icon which I don't like
fixed that too, dl at github or you could've done it with self.icon:SetFrameLevel(6)

is it possible to have a health color gradient from green (100%) to red (0% health). i know how its done in ouf, but my lua knowledge is not that extensive.
from ctra skin:
Code:
local DynamicColorSetValue = function(self,value)
    self:_SetValue(value)
    local min,max = self:GetMinMaxValues()
    local r,g,b
    if value > max / 2 then
        r,g,b = (max - value)*2/max, 1, 0
    else
        r,g,b = 1, value*2/max, 0
    end
    self:SetStatusBarColor(r,g,b)
    self.bg:SetVertexColor(r,g,b)
end
self.health._SetValue = hp.SetValue
self.health.SetValue = DynamicColorSetValue
