Khaos Standalone  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.4.3
by: Bob9000 [More]
This is a small update for WotLK compatibility, since the project has been declared "dead" by its author. See the original version here. All libraries are embedded. If you have an older version of FireTree installed, it may break this, so please remove/disable it or replace it with the one embedded here.

Description
Khaos is a universal configuration registration system and GUI.

Configurations
Khaos allows you to create configurations for addons or addon-groups. These configurations can then be changed on the fly or set as default on a per character basis. You can use a single configuration for as many or as few characters as you like. You can even set up class or server configurations.

Addon Management
The AddOns list in the middle column can be used to enable or disable addons without having to log out and go to the character screen addon config. Changing their status will require a ReloadUI to update.

Bellow the AddOns list is a number of addon categories that can contain configuration screens for registered addons. For example, Improved Error Frame shows up under the Debug category header. Clicking on an addon name brings up its configuration options in the right column panel. Checking or unchecking the addon name enables or disables the addon. This is a soft disable that still loads the addon, but sets all the options to the disabled settings. This allows you to disable addons in a configuration and enable them in another without having to reload when swapping. Right-clicking the addon name brings up a menu with an option to reset all of that addons options to their default value.

Addon Options
When browsing an addons options you can scroll with the scroll bar or mouse wheel. There is also a table of contents menu above the window that lets you skip to individual header sections or the bottom.

User Skill Levels
Khaos also has an advanced option level. Beginners are freed from the burden of worrying about configurations and can just set simple addon options, while advanced users can access the configuration editor and special options designated by each addons. For example, some addons may add in debug options and set them as difficulty=2, so that they only show to users set to see all options. Can't find an option you know exists? Check the advanced options.

Configuration Import/Export
The import/export capabilities are currently unavailable. Hopefully they will be working soon to allow you to copy and paste entire or partial addon configurations for easy sharing or transferring between computers.

Embedded Libraries
Khaos is a major part of the Cosmos UI. However, many of those libraries are now embeddable. Khaos doesn't require all of Cosmos to run and thus the necessary libs have been embedded so that you can use Khaos without Cosmos. Of course the easiest way to update Khaos is still to use the Cosmos Patcher application to update it in place, but Cosmos distributes the dependent version of Khaos.

This version of Khaos contains:
SeaPrint, SeaString, SeaTable, SeaHooks, Chronos, DynamicPopup and FireTree.

On Updating Khaos

I have loved this addon ever since I was introduced to it, and I remember when it wouldn't work for several patches in WotLK, and now once again it is not working. I would love to get this addon back because as far as I've seen there are no other addons out there that do what Khaos Standalone does. If you have a knowledge of the code and lua versions please send me a message, maybe somehow I can be of assistance to getting this back up and running. I do have a knowledge of codes, although it's been a couple of years since I was involved with them. If I can get a basic runthrough of your knowledge on how Khaos was developed and your understandings of it, I am hoping to assist you. Thank you much, and I hope it comes back in time for the launch of Cataclysm.

The original Khaos documentation pages were deleted from wowwiki.
If you want them back contact "Pcj", the wowwiki admin that deleted it.

I got him to undelete the main page, but the sub pages are still inaccessible.
http://www.wowwiki.com/Khaos

If you want this long term you'll have to migrate it somewhere else, like to Author Portal Custom Pages or something.

Re: little bug

Hi mister, thanks for the great job, but i dont know if its a combination of mods i have or not, but example, when i enable khaos, and if a roll it appears twice on the screen, in the general chat windows.... well, everyone that rolls makes their roll appear twice, that goes also for guildmates message that they log out or login ... all messages in yellow, that are i think system messages appear twice... if i disable that addon only, all things back to normal, except i have no more config manager!

i am ok to help you out, if you need more info, thanks a bunch!
Khaos doesn't monitor system messages at all, so there must be something else involved. Perhaps you have a mod that only shows the bug when it's in a certain configuration, and without Khaos it returns to the default. If you can get it to happen with just Khaos and another mod enabled (plus any dependencies), I'll try to track it down.

I wonder if there's an update for 3.1?

Or is it safe to "enable old versions"?

(For me its manually editting the toc-file since I have some expired addons wich do not work with 3.1 anymore.)

woot!

agreed, great job. Since you have no competition in the management of khaos, I would second the suggestion to remove fan update from the title.
