    [Addon] Version 1.1 Available

    Version 1.1 of The Undermine Journal addon is available.

    Recent changes:
    No longer uses LibExtraTip, instead pushes extra lines in with standard Blizzard tooltip API. The tooltips aren't as pretty as before, but they should work better with TradeSkillMaster and other addons.

    Registers itself with LibStub and provides a MarketInfo function so other pricing addons can query this database. See top of source code for info and small example.
    I've said before, and will say again: I'm a Lua newb. So if I could do something better, or if anything is just wonky with the code, please let me know.

    Newb question..

    I've done it before, but have since forgotten; how do you get the data that you then input into wow? Been looking for the answer to this all over -.-

    Update: finally found out how again. For anyone wondering how to do it, you go to this page:
    http://theunderminejournal.com/addon.php

    Then select your realm and it gives you instructions from there.

    I'd like to see an external application that creates the data similar to the way WoWEcon does it. It doesn't have to be as fancy as WoWEcon (i.e. a GUI and a launcher for WoW). It can even be written in Lua as there is a standalone version available for Windows.

    This would avoid the disconnects that the current import method is prone to.

    Regards,

    Brad

    Alternate Plan B: Divide the clipboard data into (at least) 2 pieces and have a link to load the clipboard with each piece. This will put less of a strain on WoW. Perhaps you could make it a variable number of pieces. The way it is now is crashing my WoW client way too much.

    Regards,

    Thumbs up Edited the TUJ addon for external imports.

    I attempted a private message to you (Erorus) before posting this here, but your private messages are selectively disabled.

    I have made edits to your addon to allow importing the data from a file outside of the game as opposed to requiring you to paste in the data (which crashes my game client).

    Usage: After copying the data to the clipboard from The Undermine Journal, paste it between the quotes inside the file "DataMine.lua". (It is recommended that you perform file edits before logging in. If you are already logged in, you will need to reload your UI to pick up any changes.) To import the data, type /tuj to bring up the import dialog. The text field will already be filled with the data found inside the DataMine file. Optionally, you can delete the text inside the box and paste new data. The old method of importing in-game works as before. I have yet to have my game crash due to an import since making this edit.

    Thank you for your great service to the Warcraft community.

    Why not set it up to collect it automatically 5 times/day without having to manually enter data?

    Addons do not have access to any data that does not already exist when the client is started (or the user interface is reloaded, provided the file already existed).

    Executables and scripts outside of the game are risky (in my and others opinion). You can easily roll your own solution using python, ruby, perl, php, or something similar.
