    Real Time Search and Quick Scan Snatch

    Both of these features are in Auctioneer, but the addon is much too overwhelming and clunky for my casual AH shenanigans. So, is anyone aware of a minimalistic add-on or add-ons that does:

    1) Real Time Search. I've only seen this in Auctioneer, and don't know which specific lua it is in to try to isolate only the necessities for it.

    2) A fast scan, but only show a snatch list after the scan. I currently use AuctionLite, which is great for a snatch list, but it does a slow scan each time.

    I realize that I could use Auctioneer, but it's just inconvenient when I'm not using most of the features of it. Please let me know if you're aware of any other add-ons that do these tasks.

    Thanks!

    You can use TradeSkillMaster, it's a big addon but you can disable modules in it to make it simpler and more lightweight. (Here is a guide on it). You want to use it's DealFinder feature which is mentioned further down in the guide.

    It works like Auctioneer's Snatch list, except you can run a search JUST for your DealFinder list instead of needing to scan the entire AH and then view Snatch Results. You can also configure it's run scan option for which item categories you want to scan for (for professions).

    Thanks. And that uses the superfast scan, not the normal scan?

    If you mean searching the entire AH, then it has the same GetAll function (fast scan) that Auctioneer does, albeit faster than Auctioneer.

    For a snatch list I'm using Auctionator's shopping lists: accurate right on the spot checks. I hate Auctioneer's scan which takes ages (even the quick scan takes easily 5-10 minutes on the server I'm in), even though the data is extremely useful.

    Normally I first run Auctionator lists, then do the quick scan on Auctioneer and last I do TSM scan before I start crafting. Why can't they share the scan data? Stupid...

    I remember seeing on the official auctioneer-forums that auctioneer actually does post-processing on a Getall scan from TSM. That would cut down on your scan-time.

    So that's why Auctioneer always complains that the GetAll data wasn't completed when I start purchasing the crafting mats after TSM scan is done! It just requires a lot more time to process the data, and there is no sign it's processing anything at that time. Bugger, thanks.

    I finally started learning TSM, but I don't see a real-time scan feature, that updates me on what is being added to the AH as I watch... is this a feature I'm just not seeing? Or if it's not a part of TSM, do any other add-ons besides Auctioneer do it?

    Depending on the size of the Dealfinder List in TSM I consider it a time sink as well. If you have a lot of items in it, it can take +5 minutes to complete a scan.
    Therefore I still use Auctioneer snatch lists as well as real-time search. The latter can be pretty hard depending on the size of your AH, but it is imho the fastest way to grab deals as they come by.
