LibWiki is a library for creating crude encyclopedias within a frame (or scrollframe). Most of the ideas are still in my head, but essentially, it will allow users to display formatted encyclopedic entries that can point to each other and filter contents. It will most likely follow the Wiki Creole style with some added WoW specifics (like raid icons and such). An example could look like this: local wiki = LibWiki:New() wiki:AddPage("Main", [[ [{TableOfContents title='Overview'}] =Introduction...

LibCompress is a compression and decompression library implemented entirely in WoW-friendly Lua. It supports the LZW and Huffman algorithms, and can automatically choose the most efficient algorithm for your data. One popular usage for this library is to send a compressed table to another player or add-on. Doing this requires additional encoding to remove the \000 characters from the data stream. Take a look at the forum post for more info and a development discussion:...

!BugGrabber is a small addon that simply grabs all Lua errors generated by WoW and makes them available to you through the /buggrabber slash command. Regular users should not use !BugGrabber. It is not designed to silence Lua errors - you can do that yourself from the Blizzard interface options. !BugGrabber is for developers. However, if you want to provide the developers of your favorite addon with useful bug reports, installing !BugGrabber and BugSack would be sensible. For casual...

Arbitrary Commands

Aug 30, 2015 Release
Arbitrary Commands provides a popup menu containing player-programmable scripts or slash commands. The menu can be shown by any LDB launcher; by default a minimap-pimple icon is used. The scripts are gathered in nested menus, arranged by the player. The scripts can be either slash commands or snippets of Lua code, just like a long '/script'. I kept finding myself wanting to run the same bits of /script over and over, but didn't want to use up a macro slot OR find a place to store the macro...

Documentation of new methods and AceGUI-style callbacks are at the top of the .lua file. Comments, bugs, etc, should...
