I gave up and switched to GitHub actions completely, you can use BigWigs' packager script to push to curse as well

For anyone else encountering this issue:
For the past two years, VCS clients were supposed to be using an API key instead of CurseForge credentials since CurseForge was switched over to using Twitch accounts and its own authentication system was decommissioned.
Early in April, every bit of the old authentication code was removed from the sites which brought to light the fact that in some cases the old credentials had been erroneously accepted. To fix this, go to the site your projects reside on and click your name on the top navigation bar. On the dropdown, select "My Account" and on the next page click into the My API Tokens tab. From there you'll be able to generate a new API token which you would use as the password in your VCS client.
Could you update the documentation here to reflect this?

I'm back after a more than 2 years break, but the above link does nothing for me - just logs me out and lands me on the curseforge page... Should I just not bother?
Also my twitch account runs on a different mail address than my old curseforge account...(I thought so at least...)
Edit2: Apparently it just took some time to take, back in action!

PM the previous author. It's just being nice.
Abandoned projects are marked as abandoned by the system automatically after a few months or patches (don't know the logic behind it), it will then show an option for you to take over.
There is also an issue with projects that are "All rights reserved", they technically can not be taken over, because Curse/Wowace does not have the rights to do so, unless I missed something in the EULA.

The top changed repository in the pending commits list (I assume its a FIFO list?) is Skada which had the last repository change from August 31 -- and the list does not change.
The "Status" says it's running, but that does not seem to be the case - Is the documenter taking a summer break? :)
PS: (forum feedback) the preview button is broken in the create-threads view, it redirects to an error page, links are orange in the editor, but dark-grey in the actual post, which makes them very hard to discern from normal text
Jun 30, 2013You could also do something like this:Posted in: Lua Code Discussion
local tz, tzdiff; function time_utc() if tz ~= date("%z") then --print("Updating tzdiff"); local utc, here = date("!*t"), date("*t"); here.isdst = false; tzdiff = difftime(time(here), time(utc)); tz = date("%z"); end return time()-tzdiff end print(date("%c", time_utc()))I did a quick test that actually led me to change the isdst flag as this would otherwise generate wrong output (you should consider that in your code too, even if you don't use mine)
After the first run you don't get any new tables, and if the timezone ever changes, it should get updated automatically
Jun 30, 2013Posted in: Lua Code DiscussionQuote from tinystomperbtw, it seems UnitReaction takes a UnitID.. and 'bossN' doesn't seem to work.
i'm in stockades with Randolph Moloch swinging at me.. and UnitGUID("boss".. n ) returns nil for n (1..5). UnitReaction("boss".. n ) also returns nil. "npc" also returns nil. only 'target' seems to get any valid returns.
I think "NPC" is only used for things like "talking to anduin" so that the lore window (and other such ui panels like vendor, etc.) does not lose its target even if you target another unit.

Lua still has to generate them, create hashes, test the string table for existing hashes and call the callback function. String operations are known to be expensive operations in Lua (compared to other simple operations), not in memory but in CPU time. In comparison even four chained gsubs are more efficient.
Also, you can do this easier, if you are going to use callback functions: You can "fake" branches and get a much simpler function like this
print(str:gsub("|([|cr])(%x?%x?%x?%x?%x?%x?%x?%x?)",function(c, arg) if c == "r" then return arg; elseif c == "c" and #arg == 8 then return ""; end end));I had already thought about such a solution while answering Iroared, but expected a lot worse performance -- Or rather for gsub to perform better. Pretty sure it handles all border cases although I have not tested it thoroughly since, as it is, it takes 15-30% longer to parse input than my current 4 gsubs (yeah, I've profiled it). It works because the "|" are consumed and you don't call gsub a 2nd time.
Of course this also won't work with the more complex escape sequences unless you manage to come up with a monster pattern like Phanx' that covers everything and then test that again in the callback. (I would like to see that code though, should be fun, you'd have to go recursive for link text -- I think.)
If there was a simple replacement function without patterns in Lua though, there would be no challenge ;)
Jun 29, 2013Posted in: Lua Code DiscussionQuote from tinystomperugh.. that's what i was afraid of. seems like i'd be constantly checking (i try to keep that to a minimum)
another odd thing, on one test in scarlett halls (mop) armsmaster harlan came up as a vehicle and not an npc
i'm pretty sure i'm parsing the guid correctly. seemed very odd.
Isn't he the one with that whirlwind attack? Most likely when he's whirling he's in a vehicle

You mean in a gsub replacement-callback function?

Yes I figured that out too afterwards, I was a bit fixed thinking in Lua patterns.Quote from IroaredIdeally, strings should be parsed sequentially (as they probably are in the client) to avoid all corner cases, but the code for that would be longer.
Lookbehinds won't really help, either, because "|||r" should become "||". Replacing "||" with "|!" seems like it should work, if you want to stick with patterns.
I'm pretty sure branches would suffice for the simple escape sequences without recursion (||, |cAARRGGBB, |r, ...?). But since Lua patterns don't have branches, this actually wouldn't help either :D
