Manage & view my Addons  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v0.90
by: Mars85 [More]

Manage & view my addons is an external application to manage your addons and have a quick overview of them. It has following features amongst others:
- A quick overview of your addons
- See detailed infos when you click on an addon
- Outdated addons will be marked
- See on which addons the single addons depend
- See which addons depend on the single addons
- Addons which are libraries will be marked if no addon depends on them
- Export addon list to several formats
- See for which characters the single addons are enabled/disabled
- Option to configure which infos to show in the overview list
- Option to hide libraries and/or sub-addons from the addon list
- Loading addon list from a different location, even zip files
- Backup and restore your addons and settings

Ideas for future versions:
- Saving and loading the 'activated/deactivated' settings (profiling)
- Remove unnecessary SavedVariables

If you have more ideas to include, please post in comments.

You must have the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Runtime installed on your computer if you use Windows or Mono if you use Linux/Mac OS X (compatibility isn't tested!). Please see FAQ also.

v0.90
- Backup & restore feature (It's not tagged as beta but same as the whole program: Use at your own risk)
- Added "short note / category" columnn
- The functionality of MAVPlugin_IsOnWowace.dll has been integrated into the program, thus that file will be ignored and you can delete it
- Several bugfixes, small layout changes, and other improvements

v0.87 (beta):
- There were many internal changes (including bugfixes/adjustments) which maybe broke something so this a beta release. Please feedback (even if there are no problems)!
- The program is now ready to be run under Mono what means that you could use it on Linux/Mac (even if I can't test it under Mac)
- There is now an option to show a warning if the "Load outdated addons" function isn't activated
- New feature: Addon-History which will show addons which were installed in the past (the program had to be run in the past while these addons were installed)
- In preparation to next major release you'll find an "Backup folder" option in the settings (which isn't used at the moment)

v0.86:
- Bugfix for "Argument 'Path' is Nothing or empty" error
- Added new column which shows which slash commands an addon has (Hint: This can't be determined for every addon)

v0.85:
- Per-column statistics can be shown (rightclick on a column header)
- Most columns got settings (for example an option to don't colorize the cells)
- Improvements & bugfixes for the export and new export formats (XML and colorless HTML)
- List of characters an addon is enabled/disabled for
- You can now define to which package an addon belongs to (BigWigs, Pitbull, X-Perl, Quartz, etc. are packages which contain several sub-addons). This can be done in the "notes" window.
- Sub-addons (see previous changelog entry) can now be hidden from the overview list
- Changed IsOnWowace column/plugin to a general "addon source" column. That column uses your notes and the information an addon provides to show where you can find updates for that addon. You can click a cell to open your browser with the main URL of the addon.
- Several other bugfixes and improvements

v0.8b:
- Fixed bug: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
- Several other bugfixes
- Added threshold-setting for interface-number auto-update
- New feature to load addon list from a package (beta, please test and report but don't expect that it works good)
- Added current selection related context menu entries
- Improved performance of IsOnWowace plugin and added a message if addonlist file is outdated
- Added progressbar for the addonlist loading progress

v0.8:
- You can now configure which columns should be shown
- Libraries can now be hidden from overview
- Improved export function including export as CSV, TXT, HTML
- LibBased column now supports Ace3 and Rock too
- Added LoadOnDemand, LastMod and IsOnWowace columns (for the last one column you must activate the plugin first)
- Different bugfixes and some other smaller things

Suggestion (if possible)

Is there a way to allow this application to adjust memory usage of a mod when loading into WoW ?

I'd use the app if it could do that, but not sure if that's possible.

That is possible. A column for that can be enabled at right click -> setup addon info columns -> Slash commands. It's off by default (and will disable itself after one use if you don't activate "Stay active") because it takes some time to get this information.

Is there a way to add the notes as a column? My goal was to categorize the addons
That's something I'll add in a future version.

According to cleaning Saved Variables: That's something on the 'future features' list. But first I've to implement the backup feature

Just started using it. I love the details in lib's because I never have any idea which addons they came from and if I need them. (Which after using your addon I didn't need 90% of them). I'm also using WoW Crap Cleaner becuase it cleans out my Lua files after I delete the addon. Does this have that capablity or can it be added. <Never mind about the Lua files I just saw your future idea list >

Thanks again for the wonderful addon, I'm ashamed to say I easily have over 250 and Keeping them the way I want them is a game all within itself.

==================
Edited for one more note.

Is there a way to add the notes as a column? My goal was to categorize the addons much like they do here: Class specific, Tradeskills, Role. Then I could also sort them that way and make sure I don't have things like to brokers for Ankhs or something like that or delete competing addons.

I've uploaded a new version (which is pending at the moment).

Manage & view my addons can now be run under Mono so that you could use it under Linux and likely under Mac OS X too (but I can't test Mac-compatibility).

There were many internal changes (including bugfixes/adjustments) which maybe broke something so this a beta release. Please feedback (even if there are no problems)!

DateTime.Parse(dateString, CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("en-US"));

and also use "de-DE" and "fr-FR" to parse "m/d/y", "m.d.y" and "d/m/y".

If you can pull the current culture setting from the client, use that first, then try the others.
According to the MSDN the current culture is used if no IFormatProvider is given. Strangely this doesn't work on every system. I have German datetime format too and it works (BTW the Date-string is saved with current culture too).
I've solved the problem by saving UNIX-timestamps instead of Strings. This is the most stable solution IMO.
Anyway thanks for the information.

In both cases it should use the same format. And I've the same format and don't get that error. That's the second time an user gets a conversion error which I don't get (with equal data), that's strange. I think I'll change the format to "seconds since X" so that it doesn't depend on any date format.

You can use the "Delete addon" link at the bottom of the right pane after you've selected an addon. That will remove the folder of the addon (but SavedVariables / settings of the addon won't be removed).

Absolutely love it... Either way, you got me hooked ^^
Thanks

Absolutely love it! It doesn't need a fix, but I'd absolutely love to see your idea:

- Saving and loading the 'activated/deactivated' settings (profiling)

But also maybe the ability to uninstall an addon? Not install, seriously I am in full agreement on that lol. But I mean uninstall an addon.

Either way, you got me hooked ^^

lol please please update this (or is it still working?)

I've been searching for something like this...not an updater but something that will show and help me manage my 'gazoodle' of addons, but the ability to add notes etc.

Oh god, I'll be a very happy girl if this still works ^^

One possible idea:

One thing I kept -.- trying to do via regular text was marking my addons with different text colors/fonts/effects (italics, underline etc) to try to remind myself of:

Well let me paste my 'reminder' lol...I never did finish this, and it's just reg text...but maybe might give you ideas?



  • Navy Bold = Keep
  • Purple Italics Batang = Remove
  • Green = May Have Duplicates
  • Red = Look Up (in corbel = check after rest)
  • Maroon = Optional
  • Olive = Don't use now, but don't delete
  • Teal = May Conflict
  • Gray Corbel Underline = Hope to Delete
  • Try Without = Maroon Calibri Bold Underline
  • Navy Constantia Underline = Keep Always

@Anaral: You are talking about clicking the column headers in the main window to sort the list according to that column, and nothing happens? And "nothing" means that the list doesn't change (whatever column header you click) and that the header doesn't show an arrow or something? That's strange, I can't reproduce that. Do you know since which version you get this bug?

@Slona: I think that's the date you installed 0.85, so the date should be correct. The date format isn't hardcored. In theory if the program (or more correct the .NET framework) safes the date with that format then it should "understand" that format when reading it (except your local date format settings and/or .NET framework version/locale changed or something like that).

Is it possible that this program has the date format hardcoded?

When I launch MAVMA it throws an exception:
Conversion from string "15.12.2008 07:47:17" to type 'Date' is not valid.

That string is formated exactly as I'd want it here. Things like AM/PM or month before day is just not appreciated around here...

The fact that neither date nor time in the error message is correct might be another problem? the error came up at Dec. 23rd, around 00:20 local time = Dec 22nd 23:20 GMT (=11:20PM)

thanks for a great tool!

Thank you for the update. It now works. Only thing that seems to be 'broken' is that it won't sort by the various columns. I can click them until the tauren come home, but it doesn't do anything.

Still a great tool!
