OneBag's New Search Feature

OneBag3 is part of a long line of bag replacements for the default game bags that will combine all of your bags into one frame.

OneBag has a long history of minimalism and OneBag3 will continue to uphold the standard of easy of use and simplicity it's predecessors set. Like the earlier versions, OneBag3 will continue to offer powerful options for those who wish to delve a little deeper.

Also in the vein of earlier iterations I've kept to the philosophy of doing as little work as possible, as a result the code base is very small, and most of it is in the OneCore library. As of the time of writing there are only 268 lines of code unique to OneBag3, and only 1804 lines of code in OneCore itself. LoC is a horrible stat in general, but it's fun none the less, and I cheat horribly since I build off the powerful Ace3 libraries.

Search Syntax

Search inside of OneBag3 is powered by the LibItemSearch library by Jalibroc. As a result it supports many advanced search options.

Advanced Filters:

  • Type or Subtype: t:[search], type:[search] or slot:[search]. Example t:weapon
  • Name: n:[name] or name:[name]. Example: n:lockbox
  • Sets: s:[set] or set:[set]. Example: s:fire
  • Tooltip Info: tt:[term], tip:[term] or tooltip:[term]. Example: tt:binds

Search Operators

  • Logical NOT: "!q:epic" matches items that are NOT epic.
  • Logical OR: "q:epic | q:rare" matches items that are either epic OR rare.
  • Logical AND: "q:epic & t:weapon" matches items that are epic AND weapons.
  • Greater Than: "lvl: > 30" matches items that are higher than level 30.
  • Less Than: "lvl: < 30" matches items that are less than level 30.
  • Greater or Equal to: "lvl: => 30" matches items that are lvl 30 or greater.
  • Lesser or Equal to: "lvl: <= 30" matches items that are lvl 30 or less.

Special Keywords

  • soulbound, bound, bop - Bind on pickup items.
  • bou - Bind on use items.

  • boa - Bind on account items.
  • quest - Quest bound items.

    First of all... Many great thanks for you hard work... It's appreciated, believe me...

    Just a curiosity ... Do you intend to bring back "bag break" to the configuration ?

    Kaelten your a gem. I presume OneBank will have the "choose your alt" function that it previously had, that was great. Also is it possible to mouse or click on an item in OneBank and have the tool tip tell you that other toons have the same item in their bank? This would solve the "I know I had one of those some where" problems. Thanks very much for a great add on, realize you must be flat out. Cheers.

    Well, I'm going to be making hooks for other addons. I might as well make it possible to provide other skins.... so, maybe? & Adminstrator

    Tyvm for your work over the years. Really like OneBag and OneBank, kinda think they should be one and the same addon, but that's your prerogative, I'm just happy to be a freeloader. :)

    If you happen to consider it, I'd love to see a way to change the frame appearance of both addons, to get it more in line with Blizzard's frame borders and whatnot.

    Hi!  Thanks for all the great work you're doing. I previously used BaudBag and was very happy with it, but it appears to be out of date so I'm trying OneBag3 now.  I'm happy to hear that you're planning to integrate a OneBank feature.  Do you have any plans to add skins?  I really like the various Blizzard inventory styles, but the current OneBag interface is a little too plain for my tastes.

    Happy that the addon will be supported.

    Glad there are plans to update OneBank also,would love to see it working again along with OneStorage.

    Elune bless you for updating this. All I want is a simple frame to hold all my bags separately. I don't want someone else trying to figure out how I want them sorted!! This mod is the ONLY bag mod I've found that does what I want and need.
