oUF_Adirelle

13 - User-selectable fonts (and other options)?

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

After keeping up to date on the master branch unreleased alphas of oUF, discovered here that the post-v1.5.13 release builds cause my long time favorite oUF layout to bugout. That layout is oUF_Nivaya. But its been unsupported/abandoned since last November. So have been looking for a reasonable alternative.

oUF_Adirelle seems like a fine alternative to that one and it doesn't bugout with the latest alpha oUF builds.

A couple oddities/changes was wondering about, though, with v1.8.1.

1) Lines 662-684 in Config.lua are commented out. They appear to add a font selection option with the currently available texture option in the mod's options. Which would be nice to have. Is there a problem with implementing it?

I have successfully gone into \modules\single\Widgets.lua and modified the font & font size there to my preferred one (that I used in the other layout) on lines 58 & 60. Seems a bit unusual though with full LibSharedMedia support that a non-LUA font selection option has been left out. Also, seems there is no possibility of doing any font changes for the raid frames.

Side note: the default font assigned in Widgets.lua is ABF. That font has not been included with the SharedMedia package for quite a while (licensing issues or similar), so may be worth it to change that to a default Blizz font or one in the current SharedMedia package.

2) Under the Theme/Colors selection options, you can choose anything you like for "Health". But doing so doesn't actually change the health bar color for either player or target frames.

It seems you have two choices and no others: either green or - - if you checkmark "Class (Player)" or "Class (NPC)" under Basic/arena/boss frames, Health bar color - - the class color. Certainly you could choose to adjust the colors for every single player class to your preferred one. But its close to impossible to get everyone exactly identical. And is also a big hassle to get back to the default if you choose to use class colors on some occasions but not others.

Seen this behavior with both the oUF v1.5.13 release and the latest alpha. As designed or can it be improved?

    I have just added some options to select the fonts (alpha 1.8.1-1-g4a94dba). Could you test it please ?

    As for the health bar color, please open a second ticket. I'll take a look. :p
