LibNameplate-1.0

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.

The goal of LibNameplate is to let you pull info from nameplates and/or add frames to nameplates. Replacing whole nameplates is probably out of it's scope.

Some features of LibNampelate are:

  • LibNameplate keeps track of when nameplates are shown / hidden and has callbacks for these events.
  • LibNameplate provides API to pull info from nameplates such as the name, class, threat ect.
  • LibNameplate also links GUID's with nameplates allowing you to differentiate nameplates with the same name.

LibNameplate supports the default nameplates as well as Aloft*, Tidy Plates*, caelNameplates* and dNameplates* (see known issues page).

If your nameplate addon alters the existing frames/regions of a nameplate (instead of creating new ones and hiding the Blizzard ones), then that addon's likely not going to work with LibNameplate.

Todo:

  • None

To get a handle in lua:

local LibNameplate = LibStub("LibNameplate")

Warning: Replacing or altering existing elements of a nameplate could break LibNameplate's API. If you plan on doing this, please let me know so I can add support for your modifications.
