Version: 30000.0
by: Zimran [More]
Description:
Small, light chat frame enhancements including...
  • Changes the default font.
  • Hides chat frame buttons.
  • Moves edit box to top.
  • Enables edit box movement without pressing alt.
  • Adds mouse wheel scrolling.
  • Shortens most channel names.
  • Changes sticky channel behaviour.
  • Adds a TellTarget command - "/tt".
  • Adds timestamps.

Any/all features can be toggled on or off by manually editing Yap.lua lines 4 through 12. Hopefully this will be a workable compromise - I do not plan to add any kind of in game settings. For other chat frame mod options please check out the comments.

I'd love to have timestamps only in Chatframe 1 & 2 but not in 3. I'm sure there's a way to just add this via lua, but I don't know how. Woud be nice if someone could give me a hint :*

edit: after some research I found out about _G and how to address a certain ChatFrame... adding and frame ~= _G["ChatFrame3"] after if Timestamps seems to work just fine

No error messages.
Are you sure it's not working or is it because I removed several things and simplified others. I removed button hiding, changes to the editbox, shift/ctrl modifiers for scrolling and timestamps. So, basically at this point it just does the three things mentioned in the description.

It's probably odd to release a newer version of a mod with fewer features but I wanted to slim it down even more.

If you're looking for the removed features and a lot more I recommend checking out PhanxChat or Chatter.

A couple of other very lightweight chat mods are idChat and oChat (I think that's the newest).

@mentalnutsy
Sorry for not responding sooner, I've been away. To turn off timestamps you can edit the Yap.lua file with any text editor and comment out line 78 by adding "--" to the beginning or you could just delete the whole line; either will work. Oh, and for the scrolling you don't have to use the keys...it just makes it faster. With no keys pressed the box will scroll one line at a time.

@xromania
Thanks

@Darkmoone
I'm not planning on adding sticky channels because I'm satisfied with the defaults. There are many chat mods that have this feature. Two that I know of are PhanxChat and idChat. PhanxChat has just about every feature you can think of while idChat is a lightweight chat mod like Yap.

@*
I'm going to be uploading a radically different and even more simplified version of Yap in the next few days. It will only have channel shortening, the different (better?) font and a simplified mousewheel. This is all that I require in a chat mod so that's all I'm keeping in. If you'd like more features you'll need to look at one of the other excellent choices available.

-- Thanks, Zim

It changes the default font, adds mouse wheel scrolling*, hides the chat frame buttons (up / down / bottom / menu), moves the edit box to the top, shortens most channel names and adds timestamps.

* Shift + scroll = top/bottom | Ctrl + scroll = page up/down

Thanks for the comment, I'll clarify the description a bit later today.

It does something to chat, but what?
