1.4.0 will be Automaton's final release. I've removed many modules for it which were obsolete, poorly implemented, or otherwise neglected. If they worked for you and you need them back, feel free to download the previous version. My intention is to at some point break Automaton apart into several addons that may replace the functionality in smaller and more focused packages. Keep an eye on my author page, at some nebulous point in the future they will begin to appear. I may disappear for long periods of time, but I always come back eventually :)
Automaton is a collection of modules which are aimed at providing players with tools to Automate frequent and tedious interface activities. Examples include: bypassing "gossip" text, automatically repairing items when at vendors, handing in repeatable or daily quests, and more. Refer to the list below of included modules along with brief descriptions.
If you would like a graphical menu to navigate the options, you can install a mod which displays DataBroker compatible options. One example: http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/button-bin.aspx FuBar users might want to try using: http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/broker2fubar.aspx
1.3.7+ note: Some extremely rudimentary code has been added to a couple modules for creating custom lists: sell/ignore lists for the sell module, and a list of players to always send invites to for the invite module. They're clunky and particular, but I left them in because they do function on a basic level.
Hold down shift when talking to NPCs to temporarily disable Gossip to change your hearth or whatever.
Gossip - Will bypass all kinds of NPC dialogues for you, such as repeatable quests or gossip text.
Group - Options for automatically accepting group invites.
Invite - Options for sending players invites automatically via keywords.
Repair - Repairs all your items any time you interact with a vendor which can do so. Can also be set to attempt to repair with Guild Bank funds first.
Sell - Sell all your trash (gray items) any time you click on a vendor. This module needs some love to be a little more flexible, but is still incredibly convenient.
