GemHelper Broker

This is a small little add-on to make GemHelper accessible from your favourite broker mod.

GemHelper is required for this add-on to work.

    Cool cool, nice.

    Yes, there are pretty straightforward (yet not immediately clear...heh) ways to add it to a repo without uploading it yourself (something that's needed/required for other libraries). Can forward the info if you start using Ace3 (etc.) libs in this. But in terms of LibDataBroker, its the one special case.

    Good luck and nice job again.

    Thanks. I was trying to add it without putting my own copy of the file into the repository but that'll do for now I guess.

    As for external access to the repository - If I ever decide that I'm done updating a mod then I'll open it up. :)

    Its pretty straightforward to add it so that it will be packaged properly, but they don't make it too clear about the steps needed here...heh.

    The most common way:

    1) Download the latest LibDataBroker-1.1.lua to your PC (v4), upload it to /trunk/libs/LibDataBroker-1.1. When you tag the mod for release, also add it to the tagged directories.

    2) Add the following line to your TOC (as of r5, line 14 would work best):


    That's it.

    Also, that's the only library you should ever hard-embed. Its recommended by its author to be, it hasn't been changed for years and is unlikely to be in the future unless the Toomanypandas expansion in some way causes problems.

    As to the mod, another thing that would work is adding external access permission to the repository. So that other registered authors here can help out and/or support the mod if/when you no longer want to.

    I'm trying to figure out how to include libdatabroker in the download with the packager on the site. I though specifying it would include it in the builds but it seems it only adds it to a list on the bottom right of this screen. But I guess not.

    The XML will be used in the future for some options frames so that's why it now exists. I'm hoping to add a listing of gems and the number of each gem the player has when the mouse is hovering over GHB but with options to specify which gems to track and which gems to filter out.

    Nice effort.

    One thing will likely want to do before release: embed LibDataBroker-1.1 that this uses. Its the recommended method as per its API page, instead of relying on other mods to provide it.

    Another potential change for "tidiness" (that will work): take the file links out of GemHelper-Broker.xml, get rid of the xml file & put them into the TOC instead.

    I hope to add more to this addon - uncut gem counts, the ability to open gemhelper to cut gems, etc.

    Seems to be working as intended. I've been using GemHelper longer on my non-JC toons than I have on my JC. This broker is great!

    So far.. we have a nice little icon and a name show up on titan panel.  Left click opens and closes the GemHelper frame.  Can't cut gems from it because it's showing the gemhelper frame and not the actual jewel crafting window.

    Looking to find out how to get it cutting gems.
