LibAboutPanel-2.0  Updated less than 3 days ago!

Version: 1.0.1
by: myrroddin [More]

LibAboutPanel-2.0
An embedded library that scans your AddOn's ToC to display that information either as a separate About button in the Interface Options panel or as part of AceConfig-3.0 options table.

Retail or Classic
LibAboutPanel-2.0 should work in both versions of the game. However, if you use it as a standalone in WoW Classic, you will need to enable the loading of outdated AddOns via the character select screen, AddOn button, toggle in the new window.

Not a drop-in replacement
LibAboutPanel and LibAboutPanel-2.0 do more or less the same thing, but LAP2 will not replace Ackis' version just because you have it installed. As an author, you can make the choice which you prefer.

API
You can find the API here on this page, and the example here on how to embed and use LAP2.

Features that are new or different than Ackis' LibAboutPanel

  • More localization. LAP2 uses global strings to translate factions, locale names, etc. It also has more translatable strings than the original.
  • Its API is embedded, so MyAddOn:API() is the norm.
  • LAP2 has an API that supports AceConfig-3.0 options tables, thus the About panel can be displayed as a tab, part of a tree, etc.
