FuBar2Broker

This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

Description

Transparently creates LDB ("LibDataBroker") feeds from all of your FuBar plugins so that they can be shown on LDB displays of your choice instead of on FuBar.

See this forum thread for general info on LDB.

Usage

FuBar2Broker is meant to be completely transparent. If FuBar2Broker is running, you should see LDB feeds for all of your loaded FuBar plugins listed in your LDB display(s).

NOTE: Many FuBar plugins require an actual addon named "FuBar" to load as a dependency, and will refuse to load if it is not present. Use this miniature FuBar stub to make them work with FuBar2Broker!

Also note that even with the fake FuBar stub installed, some plugins still won't load because they are flagged as Load-on-Demand. F2B does not currently handle loading LoD plugins (because such functionality is currently over my head) so you will have to edit their .TOC file to remove the load on demand requirement.

Known Issues

Some FuBar plugins (such as NRT) expect you to double-click them to perform certain actions, but double-clicking does not seem to be handled in a compatible way by LDB. As a workaround, FuBar2Broker currently allows you to simulate double-clicks by clicking the middle mouse button instead.

Also, please note that FuBarPlugin-3.0 based plugins such as FuBar_PerformanceFu and FuBar_DurabilityFu will not be converted to LDB plugins by FuBar2Broker because F2B works by acting as a FuBarPlugin-2.0 dummy library. Most FuBarPlugin-3.0 plugins that I know of have decent LDB-based alternatives though.

Bug Reports

    @chrisgriffith25: Based on reading WoWInterface comments from the author of the FuBar plugin you mention, it may not be possible for FuBar addons that create multiple buttons to work on Broker displays due to the slightly different nature of the FuBar and LDB/Broker plugin systems.

    Some alternatives:
    - use an action bar addon like Dominos to size and move the micro menu buttons to where you want them (this is what I do)
    - use a native broker plugin (http://www.wowace.com/addons/broker_micromenue/ or http://www.wowace.com/addons/picobuttons/)

    I'm having an issue with this addon and Fubar_Micromenu. I'm getting all sorts of errors and the Fubar_MicroMenu isn't working when Fubar2Broker is enabled. I've sent this message the other direction as well. Looking for some help.

    Please report any issues that you have with the latest version on the forum thread or ticket tracker, and I'll try to look into them.

    Non-functional with either Carousel or Titan Panel - even with the stub.

    Does this work with Titan Panel or Carousel? I've never got a Fubar plugin to show up.

    There are a couple FuBar add ons I like to use with a LBD (Chocolate Bar)but no idea where to put the stub to make it work. Any directions on how to do this?

    Don't know if this belongs here. If i for example mouseover SkillsPlusFu id get the tooltip from this addon.When i press right mousebutton for the option, the optionframe is behind the normal tooltip. I use Fortress as displayaddon.

    regards, Sha

    Edit: I've modified your behavior seen by the tooltip. I have a strange attitude for example with auldlangsynfu. The tooltip popt arbitrarily, although I do not'm on the block.
