Quote from vexis58It's not just mac users. I tried to install the Curse updater on my PC last week, and it was only detecting about 8 out of my 100+ installed addons. Looking at the forums, that was a known bug with 10 pages of replies and no sign of getting fixed. Tried it again today, and it's finding more of my addons, but still missing the vast majority of them.
But mainly I prefer WoWMatrix for searching for NEW addons. I used to use the WoWAce page for that, just show all addons on one page and use my browser's search function to search through the addon descriptions. But now that's gone, and my Curse alternative is completely useless. It'll only find things if I know their names or authors, both on the Curse site and the Client. There doesn't seem to be any option to search through the mod descriptions.
I think what we need is an open source version that does the same thing that Curse and WowMatrix do. That way, we'll be able to keep it up to date, as a community. . . . I wonder how hard it would really be?
With sites like Ace, you can grab all the current information -- so ace mods are cake.
But, grabbing database information from curse might be a bit more difficult. . . . should be doable though -- wowMatrix does it :)
