Friend List Colors

Version: 7.0.0.160625
by: Vladinator [More]

Official repository can be found at GitHub.

Tired of the old friend list? This addon does more than just coloring your friends by class. You can specify what kind of information is shown and how the text is colored. You may even use the note field to specify their alias and show that in the friend list - the possibilities are endless!

Getting started
You can play around with the rules by opening your interface settings, going to the "AddOns" tab on top, and finding the addon in the list.

Examples
By default you will find the following pattern as standard:

Code:
[if=level]L[=level] [/if][=accountName|name][if=characterName] ([=characterName])[/if]
If you want to try out something else, try this one:
Code:
[if=level]L[=level] [/if][=accountName|characterName|name]
These will probably not suit your needs. That's fine. Why not make your own?

Syntax
There are three types of data types. Output blocks, logic blocks and color blocks.

You can make the addon output information:
Code:
[=characterName|accountName|name]
The addon will try to show the character name, if it doesn't exist, the account name. These are Battle.net specific, so we add the character name from the World of Warcraft friend system, not RealID/BattleTag. This way we cover for both types of friends we can encounter.

You can also make show specific output based on information:
Code:
[if=name]Friend[/if]
The addon will check if the friend is a World of Warcraft friend, then show the text `Friend`. You can put anything you like inside the block itself.

You can color the output, similar to how you specify the `[if]` blocks above, by using:
Code:
Level [=level]
The addon will use the level difference and color the text `Level [=level]` appropriately. Note that since we also have `[=level]` present, it will change that into their actual character level. For the time being you can only color based on `level` or `class`.

Variables

This is the complete list of variables available for you to use:

  • bnetIDAccount
  • accountName
  • battleTag

RealID messages work, regular friend names are not yet properly swapped out in the chat when they login or out, but will be soon enough.

Hmm.. The alias feature seems to be working in the friends list, in the chat edit box but not in the chat itself for some reason.

That is true, harl.

Also there are some situations some tags don't work, offline friends can't show class, level, e.g. The addon does not cache data, only uses what the game knows, hence why these wouldn't work on offline people.

Putting this here, just in case:

There's a certain chance for users with older (or modified) tags syntaxes to not see the names of their Battle.net friends at all when syntaxes miss the SB (offline) and SBT (online) tags. (which don't seem to have been necessary pre-MoP)

Solution: Simply add those tags via the corresponding slash commands (/flc). Those who never modified their syntaxes may just want to reset them via /flc reset which will add the tags automatically.

I recommend maybe adding the bonus features in a separate module like Xperl, DBM, SLDT, TipTac, Atlasloot does. Or just creating a seperate addon . So people who don't want it can disable it without any impact to performance.

I don't think it's dead, the author just need a little time to update it. Sadly "Friend List Colors" is kind of far away from "Friend List Renaming", hehe. BUT I am curious how these addons work together, if they can or if one overrides the other, hmm.
Haven't tested them togheter. I'm pretty sure it's dead no updates since December 2010, there's been numerous bugs through 4.1,4.2,4.3 and now it completley broke in 5.0.4 and no updates, as well as no replys to PM's or comments on the addon since 2010.

That is hard because the names of realid friends are not plain text, it's rendered on top of a weird looking string, so you can't tell one from apart from the other, if they both got the same name length, so it kind of makes it impossible to truly track realid friends.
There's an old addon from the start of Cata that used to be able to do it. It renamed people when logging in and out, as well as when they were speaking in chat, and in the chat editbox when you were typing a message.

Yes, I have expanded the tokens to incorporate RealID names. $B is the tag, and added T for coloring blue, just like the RealID color. $BT produces a blue name for RealID friends, it's hidden for non-RealID friends. Also, check changelog for an example.

The default syntax is more Blizzard like, but shows character info on RealID friends, I shall add an option in some future update to toggle on/off for RealID friends for customization purposes.

I think I'm in love thanks a lot this is great can finally nickname Real ID friends in my friends list using the notes! Now I just need to figure out how to rename them in chat as well , Thanks again.
