Gnosis (Castbars and Timers)

Gnosis is a highly configurable castbar and single timer addon. Gnosis can show ticks of channeled spells, detect unintentional clipping while channeling and combine data of channeled spells to combat text addons (MSBT, SCT, Parrot). It also allows to create buff, debuff, and cooldown (spell, rune, item) timers with a similar set of options castbars have.

To visit Gnosis' development site or to grab alpha&nolib files go to Gnosis @ CurseForge
For questions or comments please visit Gnosis' official forum thread
If you find any bugs or have suggestions create a ticket here

Gnosis also allows to create as many castbars as you like and does not force predefined bars onto the user. The "casts" of following "units" can be shown:
  • Player, Target, Focus, Pet (= Vehicle)
  • Arena Opponents, Party, Mouseover, Bosses
  • Mirror bar (Fatigue, Feign Death, Breath)
  • Global Cooldown Indicator
  • Swings timers (one handed melee and ranged, single and combined versions)
  • Most ...'s Target Units are selectable (e.g. Target's Target's Target = targettargettarget), though those units require additional scanning if bars for those units are created

Main features:
  • unlimited amount of castbars
  • single bar buff, debuff, cooldown and item cooldown timers
  • horizontal & vertical bars, invertable bar growth direction
  • customizable look (alignments, colors, size, font, casticon, ...)
  • full control of castname and casttime strings
  • black-/whitelisting (i.e. show castbars not/only for specific spells)
  • support for all channeled spells (show tick markers including spellpushback support for those markers, configurable)
  • combine dps of channeled spells and output via combat text
  • anchor bars to frames or the mouse cursor

  • toc bump and changes for patch 6.0.2
  • added sub-commands aurastacks=# and auraeffect=# to show stack count/effect value instead of duration (with a maximum value of #)

You shouldn't ever worry about memory usage by an AddOn when you don't develop AddOns yourself. Only when you see your framerate dropping by a large amount should you contact the author and tell him about memory.

Gnosis uses Ace3 iirc and it could be that it's the first AddOn to be loaded by your wow installation. That's why memory usage is higher, as the libraries are taking memory as well.

Ontopic: Nice addon

Meleeswing

Is there any reason the meleeswing bar shouldn't be working while in cat or bear form for a druid?

I'd really appreciate if people would read the description saying:
Please post requests and comments on Gnosis' Curse website (at least if you want me to reply), I won't answer on wowinterface.
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...ls/gnosis.aspx

To your problem:

I'll look into it and eventually fix it (haven't had the opportunity to test Gnosis with a druid). Please post your next comments on curse (if it's not meant as information for wowinterface users).

It's in there, srsly, at least if you have not disabled the border completey (i.e. border size 0). Non interruptible status is implemented as a border indicator, check out the castbar options for border colors.

Remark:

I am looking for a replacement to AzCastBar and one thing I would need is the ability to keep track (as separate cast bars) stealable buffs. ACB calls this TargetAuras and has a specific option called Show Stealable Buffs which when combined with Show Buffs and nothing else will show me bars for all the buffs the target has that are stealable. As a mage this is invaluable. Does your addon do something similar, and if not, can that feature be added?

I'm very well aware that both Quartz and AzCastbar (which take a modular approach to all their functionality) supply users with a lot more than castbars. That's no route I want to take Gnosis on, Gnosis is supposed to be a great castbar addon with support for stuff that has something to do with spell casting (like the channeled spell tick support and everything that can be derived from that).

What you are asking me to do is to implement a dot timer into Gnosis which I am completely unwilling to do (you are talking about castbars which are showing the target buffs but that's missing the point). There are multiple addons out there that supply users with awesome (de)buff/cooldown timers. And I admit I'm no fan of all in one addons. I prefer to pick addons which provide the exact features I'm looking for. I also think many people are afraid of using multiple addons for no good reason, nowadays most addons behave quite well performance wise.

Remark: People still seem to be unwilling to read the addon description saying that I won't answer on the comments section of wowinterface. I very well respect wowinterface but Gnosis main website is the curse(forge) one. If you have requests or comments which you want me to reply to post your comments on curse please. This will be my last reply here (which does not mean I won't read the comments on wowinterface from time to time, I just won't reply).

Have fun, hope you will find a way to also use Gnosis.

Was going to replace AzCastBar with this beauty until I couldn't figure out how to align the cast time text to anywhere else but the default position at the right of the bar. Looks like I'll be sticking with ACB unfortunately.

I really like your addon! If you have time at one point, I'd love to be able to move the spell name and casting time text above the cast bar. I overlay my cooldown line (fortexorcist) on the castbar and with the text there it just looks too messy.

Thanks

This is an awesome castbar, I love it! So much better than the other ones with their janky skins. This is nice and original.

Default configuration

Have you considered improving the "out of the box" experience of this addon? Personally, I think it would be much more useful if it came with a player castbar with a sane default configuration, and the blizzard castbar hidden, out of the box. Configurability is well and good, but many addons skimp on the default config (do dominos and bartender4 *really* think I want 8 actionbars in the middle of my screen? unlikely, at a minimum they could anchor to the screen edges by default...).

Re: Default configuration

I'd still prefer if people would post requests on curse. But I'm always open to good suggestions how to do things better.

On the main config tab there's a button to create a standard set of bars most users probably want/need to have. What's hard to know is: what barsize do users prefer and were should those bars sit on the screen. Most users won't agree on those very basics.

What is a "sane" default configuration? What do you not like about the basic configuration of castbars? I'm always open for suggestions.

I'll consider creating those standard bars and hiding blizzard castbar/mirror bar on first start (per character).

Configurability is well and good, but many addons skimp on the default config (do dominos and bartender4 *really* think I want 8 actionbars in the middle of my screen?
Honestly I cannot really agree with you that Gnosis "skimps" on the default config. Sure, no bars are created, but that is exactly to not force something onto the user she does not want. On the other hand I put some thought into the default bar configuration (well, probably time showed me what I like). Again, what is it you do not like about default bar look? And I admit it might not be easy to configure name and time format strings, but those are configured rather complete out of the box. The rest should be straightforward, and most users probably don't see the need to edit many options.

While that's certainly true, it's no more difficult to modify the bars than to create them. If that standard set are those most users want to have, then why do you force them to click that button at all? Just provide it configured that way -- they can always go into the options and configure / add / remove from there.

It usually makes sense to optimize for the common case, not the less common, and trying to cater to everyone is an exercise in frustration, but that's just my personal opinion In this case, it's lovely that it's this configurable, and you've done an excellent job with that, I simply think someone should be able to install the addon and test it out immediately without having to jump through hoops first.
