NinjaPanel  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v1.2.0-release
by: Cladhaire [More]

NinjaPanel... so sneaky you'll hardly know it's there

What is NinjaPanel?

NinjaPanel is a simple, easy-to-configure display for LDB data objects. If you're not familiar with LDB, it's a simple standard that addon authors can use to provide information to other addons without needing to write any code specifically for them. This is helping to break the fubar/titan stronghold by providing a standard flexible enough to let any addon display the information.

Okay, so what does it do?

NinjaPanel will display any LDB plugins you have installed. Currently it displays all of them, although options are forthcoming to disable the display for certain plugins. It also can provide you quick access to addon options and other configurations via "launchers", simple icons that sit on the panel. Most addons that provide minimap icons (which we all hate) also provide launchers. All plugins can be dragged around the panel to re-order them, so they're displayed exactly as you'd like them to be.

Where are the options?

There aren't currently many configuration options for this addon other than the ability to enable or disable specific plugins, but I wanted to get a release out to get some feedback from the community. You can expect the following options to be implemented at some point:
  • Display the panel on the top, bottom, left or right of the screen
  • Change the height/width of the panel
  • Customize data objects to hide the icon, text, etc.

So where do I get plugins?


You may be surprised at how many addons already provide some sort of LDB data object, but if you're looking for new ones to try out you can check the category listings at your favorite addon site:How did you manage to get TomTom Crazy Arrow in the panel

NinjaPanel introduces support for icon colors and coordinates using the following fields in the LDB data object:

iconR - The red component value of the color
iconG - The green component value of the color
iconB - The blue component value of the color
iconCoords - A table containing the texCoords to be set on the icon

I will soon expand iconCoords to support the 8-value version, as well as iconRotate to support arbitrary rotations using the new API.

These features are used in the latest version of TomTom to allow you to display the crazy arrow in NinjaPanel.

Anything else?

Please feed free to leave any suggestions or feedback! I'm interested to see what the community would like to see in a panel addon that I can easily provide.

Thanks for using my addons!

Could you please think to implement this in future releases ?

Thanks.
I'll keep it in mind and see how tough it would be to implement, now that I'm spending more time playing!

I'm guessing it's something about the implementation of Broker_Everything as it seems like it's the only one, but this worked previously, and currently works with the minimap buttons.

Any thoughts? Thanks!
I think this should be fixed now, can you confirm?

More Than 1 Bar

Thank you for this working Bar! The ability to add more than 1 bar would be great. I like to arrange my stuff by category and such on my bars. I used to use Chocolate Bar, as an example. You can add as many bars as needed on that one. Helps tremendously. Apologies if you have received this request before. I skimmed through some comments and didn't see it.

The choice of using Icons only would help save space as a secondary option.

Thanks, some simple bugfixes and should be working now as intended. It'll chose the two highest raw value (not percentage) stats you have and display those, and update accordingly as you change gear.

Hi,
I installed the v.1.1.2 and the %% are gone

What I found:

-stats are not the same on the paperdoll yet.

Also I think they not change to some events like:
'ACTIVE_TALENT_GROUP_CHANGED'
'PLAYER_SPECIALIZATION_CHANGED'

Because if I change from moonkin to guardian the stats displayed in LDB are the same.

And also if I change equipment the stats are the same, so probably these 3 have to be checked too:
'PLAYER_EQUIPMENT_CHANGED'
'UNIT_INVENTORY_CHANGED'
'EQUIPMENT_SETS_CHANGED'

Tooltip instead is fine.

- The NinjaPanel-CombatStats once disabled from the options is not possible to enable again. It simply disappears from the list of the available plugins . I had to edit manually the config saved to see it again.
It happens only with it.

Thanks

Hi,

I was trying the new 1.1 release... the plugin on the stats reports in the LDB some values that are different from the ones in the tooltip.

The ones in the tooltip are the same of the paperdoll ...

Probably I have not understood the data ?



And another thing ... why there is somewhere a %% (a double %) ?

Thanks again for the great addon.
Probably some silly bugs to fix

I'm so happy to see that you (Cladhaire) will be actively maintaining this addon. I love your work.

As for suggestions, I definitely have some. I'm in the process of eliminating ElvUI as my base UI, so I'm desperately looking for a broker bar that has free placement options. For example, in ElvUI, there are 2 separate bars. One under each chat window. I'd like to replicate something similar in my new UI.

Features (desirability indicated by the number of '+' signs):
+++++ Resizable bars (i.e. doesn't need to span the entire width of the display)
++++ Free floating bars (can be positioned anywhere)
++++ Multiple bars
++ Color and Opacity controls
+ Can be anchored to other windows (e.g. chat windows, unit frames)

Maybe I'm asking a lot, but you did ask for suggestions.

As for plug-ins, I've been looking for one that easily displays a characters current talent spec as well as the currently selected loot spec. Again, to replace the one that was included with ElvUI. The ones I've found don't do the job well sadly.

align=center if possible first ....

Thanks so much
