What are cAddOns?
AddOns are written by me (Chimaine) and are small, lightweight and functional AddOns.
Where do you get your ideas for your AddOns?
If I'm using a AddOn and I'm not satisfied with it, I'm trying to write a AddOn with a functionality that does exactly what I want.
Or I'm searching for an AddOn and there isnít anything like that out there. So I have to write it myself.
If I'm satisfied with the result, I make it public: a new c
AddOn is born.
How do I configurate a cAddOn?
In most cases there isn't any inGame config. You'll have to edit the .lua file.
You can find the file in the AddOn folder of the AddOn, generally
Open it with an editor (I recommend Notepad++
) and edit the values in the described area.
Why don't you make an inGame config? It would be a lot easier!
That may be true, but it adds a significant amount of memory usage. Since my goal is to keep it as small as possible, an inGame config doesn't fit in that concept.
