About WeakAuras 2

Build Status WeakAuras on Discord

WeakAuras is a powerful and flexible framework that allows you to display highly customizable graphics on your screen to indicate buffs, debuffs, and a whole host of similar types of information. It was originally meant to be a lightweight replacement for Power Auras, but it now incorporates many features that Power Auras does not, while still remaining more efficient and easy to use.

Features include:

  • An intuitive and powerful configuration interface
  • Custom textures including all textures from Power Auras and the new Cataclysm spell alerts
  • Progress bars and textures that show the exact duration of auras
  • Displays based on auras, health, power (mana, rage, soul shards, holy power, etc.), cooldowns, combat events, runes, totems, items, and many other triggers
  • Preset and user-defined animations
  • Custom side-effects such as chat announcements or sounds
  • Grouping, which allows multiple displays to be positioned and configured at the same time
  • CPU optimizations such as conditional loading/unloading of displays, modularity, and prevention of full aura scanning
  • Powerful customization options, such as animation paths, on-show/on-hide code, and custom triggers, for Lua-savvy users

To open the options window, type /wa or /weakauras into your chat and hit enter or use the LDB feed.

Extending WeakAuras 2

  • WeakAuras_StopMotion: This addon adds a new region type to WeakAuras that allows for stop motion animations. Stop Motion textures contain each frame of the animation as a separate image. The addon ships with a number of animations and it supports custom textures.
  • SharedMedia for more bar textures.
  • SharedMediaAdditionalFonts for more fonts.
  • ColorPickerPlus for a better version of the WoW color picker that includes class color templates and a copy and paste function.

For in-depth documentation, see the wiki page.

For some examples of what WeakAuras can do, take a look at wago.io where tons of people upload their creations and even feature complete interfaces utilizing WeakAuras!

    Add a "WORKAROUND" marker to various blizzard bug workarounds

    Once 8.0 is in development we should try to remove some of them.

    Fix spurious line breaks in icon texts

    Apply the same workaround as for text auras.
    Also extract it into its own function and add a "WORKAROUND" marker.

    Apparently the extra adjustment needed depends on the font size.
    With font size 288, 4 pixels were enough so for now use that.
