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

I normally do direct git pulls or download the gzips from Github .

Yes, build 110f9ae9715e23a26684 fixes the problem completely so far. Any item linked into any chat, it does so properly with no errors.

Is anyone else having a problem with macros not working properly with item links generated by this addon. Used linkerators before but that is down.
Specifically the macro is /2 selling [[stupid junk] and it just comes out "selling [[stupid junk]" in trade.

Thanks for the help.

Beta

Just opening options appears to freeze the beta client for a long time, if you are lucky it starts working again.

Also, the scrollbar does not work.

Yep, that's why I've not uploaded a new version yet. I think this issue has to do with the streaming nature of the new client. My theoretical fix is going to be a thread of sorts.

Update:
Threading doesn't seem to be helping (searches become too slow :P). Its very possible that Ludwig will be killed off with the release of Cataclysm. I bet LootLink will work well enough.

Yeah, performance didn't get any better this patch, but many other UI and client things are broken, so there is always hope!

Tuller, do you have any plans to create some kind of alternative to Ludwig. Even something as simple as a feature to scan the Bagnon_Forever database?

I don't have any immediate plans, no. BagSync does something similar to what you're asking, though.

Ludwig was great indeed, actually Lootlink can't even come close to it in any respect I really miss this addon as I could easily find the best gear for a certain lvl toon as it had a great, easy and logical, search option. Now I have to go to Wowhead or Thottbot for that and it sucks tbh. I was hoping that AtlasLoot had a similar search function as it has a huge database of (almost) all items but I was disappointed to find that it doesn't have. However it came to my mind that couldn't Atlasloot's database be used by Ludwig? What do you think Tuller?
