I do plugins for nUI alot. In fact most of my addons are plugins for the interface. If you don't ask, you won't know. :D
Good luck with your project. Just remember, baby steps first. Start with the easier segments and build on it if you are new to lua. If it takes months to complete, then so be it. It is better to take your time and have less bugs than to rush it and have it all go wrong.
I'm new to coding so yes... this may take me awhile, and i'm definetely not going to rush it, and i'll release it when possible, and when it's close to finished, i'll give an estimated release date that is subject to change at any time.
The only reason I would provide a release date is to give people an idea about it's release. I do know that when I have the ability to, i'll take some screenshots and show them to everyone.
Once I do get the screenshots and post them, everyone will probably be going like: "Omg! This is the best idea ever! How did he think of this?!" as i'm saving the best parts for those screenshots.
I didn't mention all of the features, only the parts that people are used to.
But... when I take a screenshot and post it, you'll all see how special this'll be... and this is special to me, as i'm dedicated to the community of my MMOs, and always will be.
I'm not going to let people down in my MMO community, especially not from an addon.
Oh, one last thing, I just got the TOC file updated but it still needs some work. And please, if you want to help, please ask, I currently have nobody helping and I really need the help.
Seriously... this is the longest process i've ever seen, with like a thousand files, little to no help, and the question on how i'm going to make this addon so that it doesn't cause lag.
