PitBull Unit Frames 4.0

Pitbull 4 Config Menu

PitBull4 is a continuation of PitBull.

Differences from PitBull 3:

  • It's mostly done, but not entirely done thus why there are still only betas (despite this it is still very stable).
  • Documentation is written before functions
  • Much easier for third-party extensions.
  • Options will be much, much simpler. In 3.0, there's about 200 panels that you can mess with, it's overwhelming. I want to bring this down to somewhere around 10.
    • Layouts are defined deterministically and unit groups use the layout rather than ad-hoc layouts on a per-unit basis. This will make setting up your unit frames far, far easier.
    • Due to some decisions made, 4.0 is actually more configurable than 3.0. As a layout designer, you will have a lot more control over how things look. You can have different fonts on the same frame, different textures, more precise positioning, and a whole slough of other things.
  • CPU Efficiency will be taken much more seriously.
  • It uses Ace3 instead of Rock.

    Very usable so far, but still needs some tweaks. Couldn't get the portrait window to mimic PB3 behavior (treating it like a bar, basically, similar to Health/Power/etc.) - it wants to have a square portrait no matter what. Looking forward to further refinements :)

    @doxxx: After testing one of the latest alpha releases, it's pretty usable but I wouldn't recommend installing it for full time use.

    How usable would you consider PitBull4 to be in its current state? Is it something a bleeding edge tester could install or is it still in the "only its developer could love it" stage?

    Don't post bug reports or feature requests in this comment section. Use the ticket system.

    H0PE, http://www.wowace.com/projects/pitbul.../pages/. By documentation, I mean API docs and specifications about the PitBull4 framework, not user documentation.

    BTW: If the docs are made before the addon that measn I could read it already? Where is the documentation please, where could I access it?

    Mushgog, the idea is for you to gain customizability, actually. Things are arranged to be a lot easier to customize, though.

    a question to someone who's played around with PB4:
    exactly how much customization are you losing going from v3?
