Auracle (De)Buff Monitor

29 - Commission - Handle Internal Spell Cooldowns

Hello Developers~

tl;dr: I would love to see Auracle handle internal spell cooldowns~  Please e-mail me at Mieh@Live.com and perhaps we can negotiate a commission fee.  The screenshots are an example of one possible configuration for Auracle, and have little to do with this ticket other than to serve as a tribute to its power.

First off, I'd like to thank you for crafting such a highly configurable addon.  I currently use the addon for buff and debuff type tracking with minimalist-icons, placed in a very specialized way around my screen. (The configuration, which normally hides trackers when not in use is shown an attached screenshot to demonstrate just how powerful this addon can be~).  Self bleeds are in one spot, target stuns in another spot, and so on and so forth for nearly every CC and Buff consideration I find I need in BGs or other settings~  I doubt I would have been able to accomplish this with any icon-based addon out there other than Auracle, especially when using CooldownCount, as many other addons have no option to disable CooldownCount or OmniCC timers for icons.

I also highly enjoy the weapon buffs, with which I can keep track of what poisons I am currently wielding (shown at the bottom of the screen.)  I find this is useful when using weapon swap macros to change poisons on the fly.  

I would absolutely love to use Auracle's powerful, scalable environment to display internal spell cooldowns in the same fashion it can display anything else.  In particular I am very interested in having cooldown icons display only when their set spells are on active cooldown, and to have certain spells always appear in the same position on the screen, something I've found possible only in Auracle in my search.  I have tried over 10 other cooldown monitor addon solutions and can still not locate a solution that fits my particular purpose.  Most are bungled with bar or other graphical displays, or have timers that are not displayed in the middle of the icon itself.

If interested, please feel free to contact me at Mieh@live.com for information as to how expediting this request might be profitable via donation (assuming that is kosher of course~)

Thank you very much for your time and attention, and I hope the Auracle project continues to grow with the passing of it's MMO's lifespan~

To Auracle,
~Mieh

    Auracle was originally envisioned as only an aura tracker, so I'm hesitant to stray too far from that concept. Feature creep has a tendency to make software slower and overly complex.

    However, if there really is no other addon that can monitor spell cooldowns in this way, and if it can be added to Auracle in such a way that people who don't want that feature can ignore it and suffer no performance or UI complexity penalty, then I'd certainly consider it.

    I'm swamped at the moment but will hopefully have some more time in the next few months. When I get a chance, I'll research your request and try to see how much work it would be to implement.
