FuBar2Broker

This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

Description

Transparently creates LDB ("LibDataBroker") feeds from all of your FuBar plugins so that they can be shown on LDB displays of your choice instead of on FuBar.

See this forum thread for general info on LDB.

Usage

FuBar2Broker is meant to be completely transparent. If FuBar2Broker is running, you should see LDB feeds for all of your loaded FuBar plugins listed in your LDB display(s).

NOTE: Many FuBar plugins require an actual addon named "FuBar" to load as a dependency, and will refuse to load if it is not present. Use this miniature FuBar stub to make them work with FuBar2Broker!

Also note that even with the fake FuBar stub installed, some plugins still won't load because they are flagged as Load-on-Demand. F2B does not currently handle loading LoD plugins (because such functionality is currently over my head) so you will have to edit their .TOC file to remove the load on demand requirement.

Known Issues

Some FuBar plugins (such as NRT) expect you to double-click them to perform certain actions, but double-clicking does not seem to be handled in a compatible way by LDB. As a workaround, FuBar2Broker currently allows you to simulate double-clicks by clicking the middle mouse button instead.

Also, please note that FuBarPlugin-3.0 based plugins such as FuBar_PerformanceFu and FuBar_DurabilityFu will not be converted to LDB plugins by FuBar2Broker because F2B works by acting as a FuBarPlugin-2.0 dummy library. Most FuBarPlugin-3.0 plugins that I know of have decent LDB-based alternatives though.

Bug Reports
