bUI
Version: 0.6
by: Blooblahguy [More]
bUI
bUI is a complete UI compilation that aims to be lightweight, functional, and compatible. It will probably never include a collection of miscellaneous functions that are only useful to handful of people. Rather, it should serve as a UI baseline that isn't the blizzard default UI. Its mostly written from scratch and doesn't use libraries aside from oUF

This UI is very much in its beta, though its very functional. I've been using it throughout most of my WoW career, but there's much I'd like to fix and add in the future. Your feedback is priceless to me. Please let me know what you think!

Features

Actionbars
Alt Power Bar
Bag and Bank (all in one bags)
Buffs
Chat
Font Changes
Interrupt alert in /say
Loot Window
Minimap
Nameplates
Tooltips
UnitFrames
XP
If you'd like more detail on each of the modification above, most are available as standalone addons on my addon list. They are out of date, but the features are reflective of whats in here.


Config
There is a config.lua located in the main folder with ways to modify most elements. In the future, in-game config will likely be available (as a module)
Any feature requests are welcome and please leave your feedback!

Tons of thanks to a lot of great lua authors out there, Zork, Funkydude, Tuk, FatalEntity, Haste and on. I've learned lua from you.

Known Bugs

Bags have a few quirky bugs, particularly when interacting with the bank.
v0.6
fixed a bug where the player debuffs were overlapping the target debuffs.
added a totembar to the unitframes
increased the height of all trackers (holy power, combo points, etc) on the unit frames
one more update for the minimap, thanks Baine

v0.5
fixed a bug with the minimap lfg tracker

v0.4
updated bags and fixed all known bugs with them

v0.3
removed a section of the functions that was still checking for pet happiness o.0
Optional Files (0)

just a few hints:
  • if you want to use functions inside your config, don't just use the part of the minimap itself (or create a shortcut if you only need specific functions/fields)
  • make sure that the fields you use actually exist (you had db in there, but wanted to call a field in config)
  • tables can't be called like functions to get the data for a specific index (Frame:Function() is for functions, Frame.Table[index] is for tables)
  • double check that the functions you are using, actually return those needed values in that order (GetLFGQueueStats() returns different values than noted on wowwiki, checking by hand required)
  • double check upper/lower case for function/variable names. makes a difference^^
  • use local variables, instead of globals (globals most likely always cause taint or break another addon)

well, that should sum it up, ignore the lower part

old comment:
The minimap was the first addon I ever wrote to learn lua, so it definitely has some messy stuff in there. I uploaded an fix yesterday. But thanks for the tips.

As far as totembar, I totally think I spaced that, will add one in the next feature. I'm also in the process of recoding the unitframes, so the bug with overlapping debuffs etc will no longer be an issue. Thanks for the heads up!

(new comment, new topic^^)

i can't find the totembar frame, is it already in? (am using ImprovedTotemFrame for now, but would like to not have another addon for that)

also, while running lfr, i noticed that "Temporal Displacement" and some other debuffs were placed below the players unitframe, overlapping some of the target debuffs :/
see image below (hope you can see it clearly enough)

Every compilation tab i press your ui is in it e.g. minimalistic graph dps bla bla unless you didn't upload them in all might be wow interface playing up lol
that's not spam...
it's a new wowi feature
allowing a file to be listed under more than one category
just take a look at "file info" (yes, that field exists) on the main page of this ui


Well i don't like the change too much off the same thing.

also, where are the target debuffs?
buffs are there, but not debuffs
Thanks for the heads up on that bug, i'll work to fix it now!
As far as debuffs, its a bit weird at first, but target debuffs show up under the players healthbar, while target buffs show up under the targets healthbar. It's something i'm considering switching around, but we'll see. I'm also considering writing a ClassTimers-like addon for debuffs.
