gmUI

--- About

GmUI is a simple and clean UI for World of Warcraft.
I made it following the idea to use the settings in WTF folder less possible.
This because I usually have to share this UI with my sons and guildmates.

The addons I have used to make it are:

!BugGrabber
Ara_Broker_Guild_Friends
BasicChatMods
BigWigs
Broker_StartMenu
Broker_WorldQuests
BugSack
Butsu
DockingStation
DaftAuction
ExtraQuestButton
gmAchievementsCompare
gmAggroMon
gmAutopsy
gmBagsSlots
gmDurability
gmEquipSet
gmExp
gmFonts
gmHideQuestTracking
gmHideToolTip
gmLazyDelete
gmLm
gmLoot
gmMoney
gmMounts
gmPets
gmProf
gmSpecs
gmSpeed
gmVideoSwitch
GTFO
HideTalkingHead
idTip
Inventorian
oUF_Simple
oUF_SimpleConfig
rActionBar
rActionBar_Gm_sr
RaidFadeMore
rBuffFrame
rBuffFrame_Default
rButtonTemplate
rButtonTemplate_Gm_rs
rFilter
rFilter_Gm
Remgank
rMinimap
rVignette
Skada
StopResetingMyCameraPlease
Tipsy
tullaRange

Other buttons theme (instead of rButtonTemplate_Gm_rs):
rButtonTemplate_Gm
rButtonTemplate_Gm_sz
rButtonTemplate_Zork (but with this I think you can't skin the auree in my UI because different naming)


All these addons can be found usually on:
WoWInterface
Curse

--- Install

There are a couple ways to install it.

-- Automatic install (windows only)

The install script can't be upload in this archive, because usually sites like WowInterface and Curse prevents to upload .exe/.cmd files. It is a right policy and I agree with it.

Btw:
I have made a little installer script that backups your old settings and then deploys the new interface: Install-gmUI.cmd .
You exec it, choose your WoW folder, your account profile and the script can automagically deploys the UI for you.
If someone wants to check it: http://www.disturbia-guild.com/gmui is welcome.

-- Manual install

- Backup the directory /Interface/Addons then delete it
- Copy the gmUi Addons folder in /Interface

The following steps are optionals but I strongly suggests to make them to try the settings of few addons:

- Backup the directory /WTF/Account/YOUR_ACCOUNT_NAME/SavedVariables then delete it
- Copy the gmUi SavedVariables folder in /WTF/Account/YOUR_ACCOUNT_NAME

The settings are for the following addons:

BigWigs (settings for bar positions and textures, removed almost all default alert messages)
DockingStation (settings for font and textures)
gmFonts (change default fonts)
Skada (settings for bar positions and textures)
Tipsy (tooltip positions)
tullaRange (spell range/resources/usability colors)
BugSack (removed minimap icon)
Ara_Broker_Guild_Friends (display settings)

To reset to default settings you can use:
/gmui reset (reset ALL addons positions to the ones written in the Lua theme)

You can also check the addons webpages for further customizations and commands, but some common tasks can be accomplished using the following syntax:

/comand reset (reset the element positions to the ones written in the Lua theme)
/comand unlock (unlock the elements and move them)
/comand lock (lock the elements in the new position)


Where command are:

/rab for manage actionbars
/rmm for manage minimap
/rbf for manage buffs and debuffs
/rsim for manage the unitframe


Same examples:

---- move the actionbars to a new position:
/rab unlock
.... move the bars using ALT+SHIFT+MouseClick
/rab lock

---- reset the minimap position to the default one:
/reload
/rmm reset


--- Update an existing installation

After performing an update (following the Install instructions) I suggest you reset the frame position to the default ones:

Lua Code:
  1. /reload
  2. /gmui reset


-- Thanks and credits

I'd like to say thanks to all addon's authors and forum users that help me so much in writing my addons and this UI.
Also I want to say thanks to Theras-Nemesis for the UI textures

--- FAQ & Common Editing

My UI is planned to be use without so many changes by end users and for this reason it is not so easy to customize if you don't want to manage some lua files, but it is not difficult either.
It is planned with the idea that user have to understand the addon world and experiment a little bit with them.

Here are the most common modifications you'd like to want (after editing reload your UI):

-- Hide / Show the macro names on the buttons
file to edit: World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\rButtonTemplate_Gm_sr\theme.lua, line 150

Lua Code:
  1. --name (macro name fontstring)
  2. actionButtonConfig.name = {
  3.   font = { STANDARD_TEXT_FONT, 10, "OUTLINE"},
  4.   points = {
  5.     {"BOTTOMLEFT", 0, 0 },
  6.     {"BOTTOMRIGHT", 0, 0 },
  7.   },
  8.   alpha = 1,             -- 0 = hide , 1 = show
  9. }


-- Hide / Show the key bindings on the buttons
file to edit: World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\rButtonTemplate_Gm_sr\theme.lua, line 160

Lua Code:
  1. --hotkey
  2. actionButtonConfig.hotkey = {
  3.   font = { STANDARD_TEXT_FONT, 11, "OUTLINE"},
  4.   points = {
  5.     {"TOPRIGHT", 0, 0 },
  6.     {"TOPLEFT", 0, 0 },
  7.   },
  8.   alpha = 0,             -- 0 = hide , 1 = show
  9. }


-- Force Hide / Show ActionBars (es.Bar3)
file to edit: World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\rActionBar_Gm\layout.lua, line 115

Lua Code:
  1. local bar3 = {
  2.   framePoint      = { "BOTTOM", A.."Bar2", "TOP", 0, 0 },
  3.   frameScale      = 1,
  4.   framePadding    = 2,
  5.   buttonWidth     = 40,
  6.   buttonHeight    = 40,
  7.   buttonMargin    = 4,
  8.   numCols         = 12,
  9.   startPoint      = "BOTTOMLEFT",
  10.   fader           = nil,
  11. }
  12.  
  13. -- don't want it :)
  14. -- rActionBar:CreateActionBar3(A, bar3)

Use "--" at the beginning of the line 115 to hide the bar, remove the -- to eventually shows it (based on game preferences).


-- Manage nameplates
file to edit: World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\oUF_SimpleConfig\nameplate.lua

---- enable/disable them, line 56
---- size of the nameplate, line 57

Lua Code:
  1. L.C.nameplate = {
  2.     enabled = true,           -- enabled = true/false
  3.     size = {130,18},          -- size of them
  4.     point = {"CENTER"},
  5.     scale = 1*UIParent:GetScale()*L.C.globalscale,

Check this file further to modify all the other nameplates settings.

I really like this UI but I have no idea about Lua.
A couple things I don't like is the r action bar which I have removed for bartender so np.
The nameplates are really nice looking but very confusing and I cant get used to them in a raid or group setting plus the Argus area as I cant see the enemy with so many bar nameplates all over and find it hard to target lol.
I have tried putting Kui nameplates but I'm having a hard time as your ones don't go away lol.
Is there an easy way to disable them for a noob Lua player.
Thanks again for the ui it is so neat and after using aggrommon for ages it's nice to get the whole setup.

Hi,
Unfortunately it is not possible to edit action bars without editing Lua vars inside the addon.
The only thing you can modify is the position layout that can be done by:

Lua Code:
  1. /rab unlock

then

Lua Code:
  1. /rab lock


when finished.

Btw what changes do you need ?

Hi,

you have to manually edit the file:
layout.lua in rActionBar_Gm folder.

Find this:

Lua Code:
  1. -----------------------------
  2. -- Bar3
  3. -----------------------------
  4.  
  5. local bar3 = {
  6.   framePoint      = { "BOTTOM", A.."Bar2", "TOP", 0, 0 },
  7.   frameScale      = 1,
  8.   framePadding    = 2,
  9.   buttonWidth     = 40,
  10.   buttonHeight    = 40,
  11.   buttonMargin    = 4,
  12.   numCols         = 12,
  13.   startPoint      = "BOTTOMLEFT",
  14.   fader           = nil,
  15. }
  16.  
  17. -- don't want it :)
  18. -- rActionBar:CreateActionBar3(A, bar3)

and change the last line removing the double dash (--) so it becomes:

Lua Code:
  1. -----------------------------
  2. -- Bar3
  3. -----------------------------
  4.  
  5. local bar3 = {
  6.   framePoint      = { "BOTTOM", A.."Bar2", "TOP", 0, 0 },
  7.   frameScale      = 1,
  8.   framePadding    = 2,
  9.   buttonWidth     = 40,
  10.   buttonHeight    = 40,
  11.   buttonMargin    = 4,
  12.   numCols         = 12,
  13.   startPoint      = "BOTTOMLEFT",
  14.   fader           = nil,
  15. }
  16.  
  17. -- don't want it :)
  18. rActionBar:CreateActionBar3(A, bar3)

Then change the stancebar and petbar from:

Lua Code:
  1. local stancebar = {
  2.   framePoint      = { "BOTTOMLEFT", A.."Bar2", "TOPLEFT", -3, 0 },

to

Lua Code:
  1. local stancebar = {
  2.   framePoint      = { "BOTTOMLEFT", A.."Bar3", "TOPLEFT", -3, 0 },


and

Lua Code:
  1. --petbar
  2. local petbar = {
  3.   framePoint      = { "BOTTOMLEFT", A.."Bar2", "TOPLEFT", -3, 0 },

to

Lua Code:
  1. --petbar
  2. local petbar = {
  3.   framePoint      = { "BOTTOMLEFT", A.."Bar3", "TOPLEFT", -3, 0 },

Basically put Bar3 as anchor instead Bar2.

Probably you should have to reduce the size of the buttons too...
Let's experiment a little bit ... Let me know.

Remeber that after a changes in lua files you should do:

Lua Code:
  1. /reload
  2. /rsim reset

or

Lua Code:
  1. /reload
  2. /gmui reset

Enjoy.

Thanks for the kind words, but the main credits should be given to the addons authors I have used

Btw they are really appreciated
