Converting/ writing addons

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any sources or recommendations for taking an addon current to BFA and making a copy that functions with 1.12?

Would using the current wowhead guide be fine since it is still LUA based, and I would just substitute the wow 1.12 API?

Which addon exists now that didn't exist in some form already for 1.12.1? I think making a change to a similar addon would be a better approach than trying to convert one.

Ahh I can see why you would want to recreate that UI it is very clean. The closest fir 1.12.1 I have seen is pFUI since you can configure it. But out of the box it is much closer to ElvUI/TukUI. It has elements of the bag addon you linked as well. Might be a good starting point to look at that and make changes as you see fit?

Just a thought.

The addon retroconverting is almost impossible. The API in BFA is much more complete than in 1.12. It's really much easier to dev a full new addon than to try to put a BFA one compatible.
