Was looking into using this lib for my addon. I need an easy way for a player to type in a spell. But this lib is 5 years old. What does it do with all the memory it uses to store the spells? Is there a better lib out there that can do this? Just want to know if this will work in warlords of draenor.
I've been using it in Grid, and had no problems; I haven't tested it in WoD yet, but I'm not aware of any changes to GetSpellInfo that would prevent it from continuing to work just fine.
As for memory, once the data is collected, it's kept in memory so it doesn't have to collect it all over again every time the user types in a spell box. There's no "discard after 10 minutes" type thing going on. But since it's all static data, it's not really worth worrying about.
Yeah I haven't done any addon work for WoD yet. When I did log into the beta, I couldn't stay connected for more than a few minutes, and there seem to still be quite a few bugs in the API anyway, so I figure I've got plenty of time to do it later.
