Nov 29, 2011 Mature

A given character can be defined as a main with one or more alts. Basic API :SetAlt(main, alt, source) - Associate a main name with an alt name. An optional source can be specified.

LibAbsorb-1.0

Oct 29, 2011 Planning
Handles absorption tracking using the Blizzard UnitAura numbers added in 4.2. This is a relatively simple library but it's primarily for the fact that it's handling the auto detection of absorption spells and will attempt to save them if an addon registers a SV for it. Will hardcode some spells into it as they are given, but this allows general absorb tracking rather than only a small list of 5-6 spells.

UTF8

Oct 11, 2011 Mature
Provides UTF-8 aware string functions implemented in pure lua: string.utf8len(s) string.utf8sub(s, i, j) string.utf8reverse(s) If utf8data.lua (containing the lower<->upper case mappings) is loaded, these additional functions are available: string.utf8upper(s) string.utf8lower(s) All functions behave as their non UTF-8 aware counterparts with the exception that UTF-8 characters are used instead of bytes for all units.

A library designed to generalize sending of pseudo-addon-messages over the battle.net real id system. See the API page for details.

LibStringStorage-1.0

Aug 11, 2011 Planning
It seems Blizzard fixed this issue in the 4.2.0a bugfix patch.You can still use LibStringStorage to reduce static memory usage and loading screen length, as well as saving a bit of HDD space with your SavedVar files. LibStringStorage is designed to circumvent a limitation of the Blizzard SavedVar system - the SV system only allows a maximum of 2^16 lines for SavedVar files, and creates a new line for every table key-value pair. Some addons - especially logging utilities - often run into...

LibScriptable-1.0

Jul 23, 2011 Alpha
I've changed this repository to git://github.com/Starlon/LibScriptable-1.0.git LibScriptable is an library providing lower-level UI configurations.

LibFlash

Jul 08, 2011 Inactive
LibFlash implements frame fading and flashing. This library's methods are replacements for WoW's UIFlash and UIFade functions. The reason for this library is that those functions cause taint. All durations are in seconds format, so 0.3 is equal to 300 milliseconds. Usage: local LibFlash = LibStub("LIbFlash") local frame = CreateFrame("Frame") -- do things to the frame so it'll display local background = LibFlash:New(frame) background:FadeIn(.3, 0, 1) Methods: LibFlash:New(frame) @argument...

LibMSP

Jun 20, 2011 Inactive
LibMSP is an extremely small public domain embeddable library that WoW RP addons can embed to make supporting the Mary Sue Protocol (MSP) very easy. It supports all the backend protocol internals, and lets you get on with the UI and frontend. MyRolePlay is based on this library (from 4.0.6.72 onwards); any other AddOns that wish to be compatible are encouraged to use it as well, as it provides a convenient, well-tested, ready-made avenue for MSP support. However, a user shouldn't load more...

LibLinq-1.0

Jan 14, 2011 Inactive
LibLinq-1.0 is a collection management library similar to .NET's System.Linq. It provides a very functional approach to dealing with collections and sequences. Rather than handling collection data imperatively, it is handled declaratively. It also is thoroughly unit-tested. The library is built around the concept of an Enumerable, which nearly all collections could be theoretically classified as. Many generators are provided, such as Enumerable.Range(0, 10), which generates an increasing...

CallbackHandler-1.0

Jan 14, 2011 Mature
CallbackHandler is a back-end utility library that makes it easy for a library to fire its events to interested parties. It removes the need for addons to be aware of e.g. AceEvent. The one remaining use for AceEvent Messages is messages that do not have a fixed source - ones that multiple libraries or addons can fire. Including CallbackHandler-1.0 into your project Library if using the WoWAce repositories setup an external pointing to...

LibCompress

Jan 04, 2011 Inactive
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:...
