LFM Sniffer

Version: 0.2
by: Cladhaire [More]

This is a simple addon that exposes some information provided by the World of Warcraft "Looking for More" API. Now you can get information about the players in the LFM queue without needing to be near them in order to inspect. There is even an "average gear rating" for each person.

There is a single slash command for LFM_Sniffer that will enable/disable the addon:

Code:
/lfmsniffer
In addition to the normal mouseover tooltip, you can shift-click an entry in the LFM listing in order to spawn a semi-permanent tooltip that allows you to compare different players.

Please let me know if you have any issues! Thanks to Mikma for sorting out which stats are "useful" for a given class and for some great ideas!

LFM_Sniffer-0.2
- Added a base localization file, so users can contribute translations
- Removed +damage and expertise from Hunters

I think this addon may be one of the best/major addon like Omen/damage meters.


I wouldn't go that far, considering it's just exposing basic information that's available in the API.

Btw, can these tooltips be pulled out from /who command (or list)?
I see it from LFM window but can't check things from /who.
This will help searching specific person from like lfg channel or trade channel with /who'ing.
If it's possible. Could you please try to add this function?

Thanks in advance =)
No, the information is only (and likely will only) ever be available in the LFM system. If you want to view the details of a player, you need to have them join the LFM system.

I'll add a localization system in the next version, and you can submit a localization file for it.

it's not localization only.. lets see...

It would also be much more helpful if crit rating would have percentage in brackets. Same with haste.

Well since you're showing different tooltips for each class, I thought it would be nice to point it out. Hunters don't use spell power neither expertise.
done, even for different spec of each classes
This is really cool, but "11/60/0" doesn't help me too much, as I don't know WHAT the specs are. "Holy (11/60/0)" would be much more useful...
done

Okay, but this is my addon. I make the changes. Please submit a localisation file if you would like to see translations added.

Does this only work in the level bracket from the LFM panel?
So a level 80 would see 75(?)-80 and only the people for the current instance range (like no nexus non heroic) or would it be possible to see lower levels too?

The changelog lists the changes. No, the specs were not added in this version.. only one person mentioned that it was an issue and I wanted to get the localized version out first.

It only works for those people who are part of the LFM/LFG system as far as you can see it, so no, you can't on your level 80 get information about a level 40 player.

I understand that but the best way is to submit patches or code snippets that I can then include in the addon. Making a hunk of changes and not showing me doesn't really give me anything.

The localization changes were rather large, so I wanted to make them first. The others are all really trivial changes that don't really change the working operation of the addon in any way.

EDIT: Let me elaborate a bit more. As an addon author I have to work very hard to decide what goes in and doesn't go into an addon. I need to be able to "yes" as well as "no", otherwise my addon winds up a bloated piece of crap. If other people start implementing features and releasing code, then I lose the control over my addon.

The only reason I ask for any tiny bit of control over my addons is so that I can continue to provide solid working addons for my users. If you wanted to help on one of my large addons, I'd be more than happy but when we're talking an addon that is under 200 lines of code, I welcome patch submissions, but I'm not going to open the addon for 'wild" development.

Please download the latest version of the addon before commenting. I added them days ago.

I was iffy about trying this addon, simply b/c i dont think I need it, then i saw it was a Cladhaire production. I don't know that i'll ever use it, but I just like putting Cladhaire mods in my directory.

I doubt it will continue to function as-is in 3.3, but we'll see.
