Ludwig  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 5.2.0
by: jaliborc, Tuller

Ludwig is an item link database addon that was originally based on GetLink. Ludwig is not dependent on saved variables, and Ludwig does not require the user to do anything special in order to collect data.

Features:

  • Search Window - You can filter via name, quality, level, type, subtype, and equip location.
  • Linkerator support - Typing an item name in [[brackets] will automatically convert the name into an item link if the item is known to Ludwig.
  • Command line searching - typing /lw <name> will bring up a list of the top 10 matches in the chat window.

Commands:
  • /lw or /ludwig - Brings up the search frame
  • /lw <name> - Prints out a list in the chat window of the top 10 items matching <name>
  • /lw --r: Refreshes the database
  • /lw --q <itemID>: Queries the server for the given itemID

Ludwig and 3.1

The next thing on my list of stuff to do for Ludwig is a recode of the GUI. After that, I may add in spell links, but I'm not sure of any real utility that can be gained via doing so.

Code:
_G['ChatFrameEditBox']:HookScript('OnChar', function(self, ...)
	local self = WIM and WIM.EditBoxInFocus or self 

	local text = self:GetText()
	if text ~= '' then
		if text:match('%[%[(.+)%]$') then
			self:SetText(text:gsub('%[%[(.+)%]$', onFullMatch))
		else
			self:SetText(text:gsub('%[%[(.+)$', onPartialMatch))
			self:HighlightText(#text, -1)
		end
	end
end)
This should hopefully fix the issue

Thanks, BTW i discovered that linkerator feature messes up with WIM addon.
Links pasted in WIM are commonly multiplied and/or everything else in text bar is erased. Any chances of fixing it?

Remove linkerator.lua from the toc.

I think Ludwig may be the next addon on the "list of stuff I should update"
The main thing I want to do is modernize the codebase and add in spell links.

Assuming this gets an update, here is another request:

That we can paste links like [Axe of bonking]

and do

/lw [Axe of bonking]

Ie, the addon checks if the first non space character is a "[" and then automatically removes it for you.

Oh and querying server for item id doesn't seem to work.

(Unless it has a weird syntax)

Saved vars are different from the item cache. And it would be usefull if it could keep a list of items you have seen, otherwise there is little point.

There was a lot of CPU usage happening when scrolling items, actually. I've not reproduced it since.

Yeah, I should use tab for auto complete. I don't see Ludwig handling trade skill links, since I'm not sure they're cached.

Would it be possible to have Ludwig be able to search and display the new tradeskill links that are now Shift-clickable? I would love the ability to be able to search actual recipes that my WoW client has seen instead of only "Recipie: Teach's X" items which are tradable.

I understand that if this data is not kept by the WoW client in the Cache directory this will not be possible since Ludwig does not store an actual data itself.

Also, is there any chance that the [[itemname] chat insertion could finish and insert the link on a 'Tab' character as well as ']' since that is such a common autocomplete key in many other applications? I keep hitting it and then having to go back and redo the insert with ']'.

Thanks for considering both options/features and making such great addons.
