Lib-ItemDB FullText1

Version: 1.1.0
by: Saeris [More]


This addon is an item full-text database. It maintains a complete indexing of all text within each item's tooltip. It is meant to be used as a library for other addons which need this information to provide useful functionality. It loads a static database (currently comprised of 11857 entries) from the DefaultDatabase file corresponding to the current locale, and then stores any new or different entries in an errata table which is saved between sessions. The addon also includes the AuctionScanner1 library for adding more data via auction scanning.

History of Changes

See the readme file in this addon's folder, or my author portal, for an explanation of the versioning system used.

1.1.0 (May 31, 2008):
  • Each database entry is now stored as a string instead of an array, as this reduces loading time to about 35% and memory use to about 90% of their previous values. Due to the nature of the library (the entire text of a given entry being used each time the entry is accessed, instead of just part of it), this won't result in any runtime performance penalty.

  • As a result of the above, the IsTextInFullText function is now just a wrapper for string.find.

  • Boosted number of entries in English static database from 15257 to 16304.

1.0.3 (May 13, 2008):
  • Now uses LibStub as a load manager.

1.0.2 (Apr 23, 2008):
  • Cleaned up database loading code to handle multiple static databases more elegantly.

1.0.1 (Apr 19, 2008):
  • Boosted default database from 11857 to 15257.

1.0.0 (Mar 5, 2008):
  • Initial release.
