BarKeep

** Now with support of bars that only appear on mouseover via the optional BarKeep_BarFader add-on. BarKeep_BarFader can be found in the 'Optional Files' tab. **

Here are the main features:
  • All the main action buttons can be configured to have from 1-12 buttons.
  • All the main action bars can be reconfigured to have up to 12 rows, so you can have 6 buttons x 2 rows, 3 buttons by 4 rows etc. This is done still using the Blizzard button code for compatibility.
  • All the main action bars can be scaled independently of one another.
  • Stance bar, possess bar, and pet bar can all be relocated to where the user wants them to be.
  • All bars can be hidden if you want, some using the Blizzard options from the interface menu, others using BarKeep.
  • The options are configured by a GUI accessed from /barkeep or /bk.
  • It uses an event / hook based structure for minimal CPU usage.
I want to say thanks to the previous developers of this CleanBar & CleanBarAdvanced since BarKeep would not be possible without their initial help.

So why use BarKeep?

It enables complete rearrangement and scaling of the Blizzard bars and so has some advantages over the traditional bar mod:
  1. It uses Blizzards buttons (and button code). So pretty much it's always compatible if Blizzard make any changes.
  2. Its really light in use - doesn't use a lot of memory and CPU cycles.
  3. It seems pretty stable as a result of the above.
  4. It'll work with cooldown, ranged mods that work with Blizzard buttons and also ButtonFacade with another small mod.
Commands:

/barkeep - show the config screen.
/bk - show the config screen.

FAQ:
  • I can't see all the bars when I first use the addon. All I see are the '+'s that enable the bar placement? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to set which bars are active or not, just as you would the Blizzard bars.
  • How do I set the Key Bindings? - Use the Blizzard Key Bindings interface to set the bindings for all the bars.
  • How do I lock the actions on the bars? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to lock the Blizzard bars.
  • How do I permanently show the empty buttons? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to show the empty button grid.
Future Plans:
  • Bug fixes once identified.
  • A BarKeep_XP optional module to manage the XP bar.
  • A reconfiguration of the mod to easily allow for additional layout types for the bars. This should be fairly easy to do, it'll just require a some coding in BarKeep.lua and a change to the configuration screen, but could take some time as I'll make the changes slowly and test carefully.

Known Issues:
  • None.

I ended up just deleting the WTF folder, the problem went away and I just set everything back up.

Very strange. I'll have a look when I log-in (although it was working for me early this morning).

I'm not sure if there was some hotfix today (cause I played yesterday) but barkeep for me is messed up today. I've cleared all savedvariables and have barkeep as my only addon. I'm not getting errors but scaling is way off today and as a DK my stance icons are stretched like 1/4 of the screen (though the buttons are the correct size).

Vehicle Bar -> MainBar switch ...

... should now work perfectly. I had this work brilliantly in HToC this evening and have tested it for both in and out of combat on various other vehicles.

[Update:] On my toons running HToC the vehicle -> main bar change-over now works perfectly with 30200.7. So please let me know if this bugs out for you.

On other news ... I'll now work on ensuring the TotemBar is working perfectly. I made a small change in 30200.6 so if this now works please let me know as I'll start to roll a temporary Shaman to test this over the next couple of days. After the TotemBar then fix the Bar_Fader then I'll add the seat indicator, then work on an XPBar add-on for BarKeep.

I can confirm that it definitely seems to have something to do with being in combat. Just ran Occulus and everything was fine except for the one time the tank pulled before I dismounted

Yep - noticed that. I'm running ToC constantly to try and correct this. I've hardened the change over - in terms of removing potential taint - in the development version that I'm running (and made some further changes last night), so I'm hoping these latest changes fix it.

I'll release 30200.6 once I notice I'm not having any issues and go from there (and I have a couple of more ideas also on how I can fix it if these latest changes don't work).

Vehicle switching still doesn't seem to be working properly. I haven't done a full battery of tests, but it appears like it works fine when out of combat, but when in combat I end up missing the main bar, which sort of sucks because I can't heal anyone. :P

Easiest way to test is to do the ToC 5-man dungeon. I've also had it happen when doing the jousting daily and I exit the vehicle immediately upon defeating my last opponent.

Ok another crack at managing the switch-over between vehicle and main action bars. The use of the Blizzard eventing wasn't working out as well as it had originally - it seemed Barkeep was doing its switch over tasks too quickly and tainting the Blizzard change-over - so a fairly obvious step was to move to post hooking the Blizzard change-over.

With all the testing I've been able to do - lots of flying all over Northrend and doing vehicle based dailies - it seems to be working well, so let me know if you notice any issues.

Just downloaded the mod, and it looks awesome The only thing i miss is the extra 12 buttons from action bar page 2. Would be awesome if you could make them into separate bars too. There is a addon to make these bars come above the original blizzard bars LINK HERE there is the link if that can help you.

Interesting ... I'll have a look into that as I have a bit of a theory as to why this might be happening. Were you zoning in and out a lot?

Not sure what you'd consider a lot. Have been mainly doing AV, so I'd estimate that I was zoning maybe every 30mins+

It seems to work, but now... at least for me... cpu polling has shot way up. Memory usage is around the same but cpu polling shoots way up and continues to climb....

I reset the UI (deleted Cache, Interface, WTF directories) and only installed BarKeep 30200.5 addon.

OK - took a crack at fixing the 'turret issue' with 30200.4. Please let me know if this improves things or any other weirdness pops up. Onto the next stuff.

[Bah - realised I'd screwed up the versioning and still needed to test the changes. I correct all this in 30200.5 - but until then apologies]
