    Ah, thank you! I'll make notes of the commands.

    Currently the addon is indeed not working; it shows an empty skill list (all toons, even after deleting all the lua files).
    I'll have faith and wait till you get it working again and will try out every version you put up here.

    @Derpo: Go

    There are a few options. First, the command "/skillet flushrecipes" will clear just the recipes. Second, the command "/skillet flushalldata" will clear recipes, inventories, queues, and other stuff. Third, delete the file in "WTF\Account\<name>\SavedVariables\Skillet.lua" while WoW is closed which will delete only the data associated with Skillet. The next time you open WoW, a new file will be created.

    Note that a change in WoW build (version) will automatically flush recipes and a change in the Skillet database version with automatically flush all data.

    If you are running r489 or r490 (the latest alpha build), then the empty skill list is expected. I built this version to get the ACE3 libraries updated. Blizzard changed the TradeSkill API completely and it will take a few alpha versions until things are working at all, and a few more before things are working correctly.

    Is there a way to reset all data? And I do not mean deleting the WTF folder; I have too much important data there from other addons.

    The reason I ask is that often after an update of this addon, the addon does not work well.
    It just shows an empty skill list.
    I have to delete all the saved variables to fix it. But with all my toons spread out on different servers, that's a lot of map swapping to find the files manually.

    Thanks in advance!

    Okay, thanks! I will look into it further.

    @KippG: Go

    I wish I could say there was documentation (as I could use some myself sometimes) but there isn't. There's four plugins coded now so you can get an idea of what one would look like by looking at the code. You will also have to look at the code to figure out how Skillet calls the plugins.

    When LSW was integrated into Skillet, it wasn't done as a plugin. The same person was the author for both LSW and Skillet at the time. There may need to be some modifications to Skillet to call the new plugin at the appropriate place in MainFrame.lua, but we can discuss that if you are serious about pursuing something. I'll help where I can but this has to be your project.

    TradeSkillInfo is a good example of a successful collaboration. The TSI author has maintained both the plugin and the hooks within Skillet itself.

    Where can I get the API for the plugin Skillet supports?

  • Avatar of bsmorgan bsmorgan Jun 14, 2015 at 14:12 UTC - 0 likes

    @KippG: Go

    Sorry, LSW is an abandoned addon and Skillet support for it has been removed. There is support for TradeSkillInfo but it is displayed on the right side in the recipe details frame, not on the left side in the recipe list. I'd consider including (as a plugin) support for other addons but I believe "native" support in Skillet is beyond the scope of the addon.

    Any change y'all could integrate the pricing information displayed from LSW?

    As it is LSW is displaying errors all the time. I guess it's not going to be updated anymore and that's a great feature.

    Skillet does have support for plugins but that wasn't how Lilsparky's Workshop was integrated. If you figure out how to do what you need, I'll consider including it in the official release. Open a ticket so we can exchange ideas.

  • Avatar of Alanassori Alanassori Jun 01, 2015 at 11:17 UTC - 0 likes

    Is it possible to add price info on craftable items derived from GoingPrice addon or AH scans I made. Just like Lilsparky's workshop did. If there is a way I can help with issue I like to help. (Does skillet support plugins?)
