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- Outdated addons will be marked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- There is now an option to show a warning if the "Load outdated addons" function isn't activated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

Thanks for the compliment and the bug report

The bug will be fixed in the next release. In the meantime, if you have enough experience using the registry (at your own risk ), in the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\Manage my addons\Notes

create a new string-entry with name "_AddKeys" and value "Nothing" (it doesn't really matter which value you use but some values are reserved or could cause another error ) and the error message shouldn't occur again.

Upon updating MAV, when I click on an addon in the list I get the following error:

Code:
Unhandled exception has occurred in your application...

Argument 'Path' is Nothing or empty.

See the end of this message for details on invoking 
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

Thanks for the compliment.

According to the WowAce error: There is no more an easy way to determine if an addon is on WowAce or not. So in the next version that plugin will be replaced by a plugin which "analyze" the custom URLs you set up so that it can show on which addon page it is hosted (according to the URLs you set up or which are given by the addon).
For the meantime you could delete the MAVPlugin_IsOnWowace.dll from the Manage & view my addons folder - then the error won't be shown again.

In addition I have already implemented some other stuff in the local version but don't have enough time to complete them for a release. Maybe I will disable the incomplete features and will release the version as v0.8c or something like that so that the next release won't be in a far-away future . But there is no ETA for the next version even if I disable the incomplete features.

Update?

Just curious if this is going to be rewritten, since the WowAce check faults every time it opens. Everything else works just fine, mind you, so it's not that much of a bother. Still, this is a great program.

Right Like I said... in one of the next versions you can decide whether non-library/non-Wowace addons are bad for you or not

See, but this isn't true. More code does not translate into less efficiency. In fact, in Lua, use of Libraries actually results in a slowdown of code because, at a minimum, there is one extra stack frame that must be created (and more often than not, a lot more).

The #1 reason to use a Library is not for users, but for developers -- so developers don't have to keep re-inventing the wheel. Users should not be concerned with where code comes from or how efficient it might be unless they are actually seeing a problem.

But this is not a discussion that should be here; rather it should be elsewhere. It was just something that stood out at me.

That's historical. Before the IsOnWowace column the "Library" column was the only way to see if an addon can be updated using WowAceUpdater.
In addition not using libraries often (for "bigger" addons; and clearly not for all addons) means redundant code and (so) less efficiency.

But in one of next releases there will be an option to switch coloring on and off per column.

I am curious, why do you mark anything without a library in an orange highlight (the same color as an outdated TOC)? Is that to imply that this is somehow "bad"? Because that's the feeling I get from it, and that is most certainly not true.

There will be a workaround for that in next release (or rather the existing workaround will be bugfixed ). In the meantime you can put following line into the TOC:

## Title: UIOptions 2.4
Cool, thanks.
Good thing is that addon goes away in a couple of weeks anyway.

Actually, I saved you a little work. I started at the obvious place and removed the second addon from my folder since the first one was showing and that was the problem. The faulting addon is !UIOptions_2.4 from the Bongos2_Alpha3 zip. which is hosted on this site.
