I took some time last night to look at the .lua files for blizzards AddOn's and the language looks pretty simular.
I also downloaded AddOn Studio last night, to try to use it to base the AddOn around, but it just isn't doing it for me, it's very buggy, and annoying. Is there another program to build a base AddOn like that or do we have to code like in the old days?
This is my official hello, and i look forward to seeing you all around, and getting to know you.
Don't use AddonStudio or any of that crap. The only thing those programs really help you with is writing frames in XML, but the only reason to do that these days is if you're using a template, and even that's only actually needed for a very small number of applications involving secure stuff like unit frames. Other than that, it's basically a bloated syntax checker, but unless you're trying to develop addons without access to WoW, there's no need for that.
Plus, if you're just learning, you're far better off actually learning the language and the API directly by reading and writing code yourself.
Is there a compiled list of API codes and functions for the WoW database, or is the only way by reading already created AddOn's. I have no problem with writing the code myself, I've been doing that for awhile. But the only way I can learn a new language is by writing in it so I would need the API functions.
My first project I want to create myself is an altered UI and maybe later on (if possible) make it 'editable' in-game by the user. So they can make the custom interface they want altered to their needs.
But as I said before I need the API. Thank's for any information given.
