Flash TaskBar - no more queue lost when 'alt-tabbed'.

Hello there!

This addon makes the WoW icon on Windows taskbar blink/flash when the game window isn't in focus, for instance, you are seeing Facebook and something important happens inside the game.

So far, it trigger a flash when:

Queues (when the ready to enter window pops up):
- Arena
- Battleground
- Raid Finder
- Dungeon
- Premade Groups
- Pet Battles
- World PvP (Ashran)
- Brawler's Guild

Raid events:
- Ready Check
- DBM Pull
- Warlock's Summon
- Group Invite

General events:
- Rare Npc Respaw
- Pet and PvP battles invite request.
- Trade Window Opened
- Fly Point ended*
- Track specific phrases on chat*
- Track specific targets on combat log*
- When your character enters in combat*
- When you got disconnected from the game*.
- While crafting and your backpack run out of free space*.

* disabled by default, enable it at options panel.

On our wishlist for the next updates are:
-Resurrection in combat (battle res).

The blink is a normal flash/blink like any other App does:


Help translate the addon:
Localization Page

Download:
Link1 (WoW Interface)
Link 2 (Curse.com)
Curse Client (magnet)

Thanks for reading.

Looks very promising, though the library usage is a bit... excessive. Over 1 MB of library files for a 3 KB addon?

I notice you've got a download link for the Curse Client, but not one for Minion.

Does Minion have its own URL protocol? The Curse Client link causes the application to launch and install the addon. It's not just a link to download the Curse Client or a link to the addon's Curse download page.

I'm also not very happy with this normaly the curse client shoud install the Libs separated for me but for Details! and Flash TaskBar they stay inside the AddOn Folder anyway maybe because they were modified.
hmmm most of the libs are inside the "DF" folder as TGA files.

In the beginning when I uploaded a small addon with a full copy of ACE 3 on curseforge using only a part of it the upload was stopped until I reduced it to the really needed size. Guess times have changed

Hi

Does WoWInterface's Minion has support for magnet links? I did a research for it before post the OP but didn't found.

I copied libraries that I thought could be used in a long run, some one them may not be used and might be removed in the future.

No, it's because the library files are hard-embedded in the addon's own repository, instead of being listed as embeds in the addon's .pkgmeta file and pulled in by the packager. This is generally a bad practice, since in addition to the issue you're encountering, it also means that if those libraries are updated, the addon will then be shipping outdated copies of them.

Really, though, the libraries should just be removed. I already rewrote the addon without libraries for my personal use because the 30000% bloat was so disturbing.
