LibWowArmory coming along slowly

Posted Thursday, August 27th, 2009 9:55:00 pm
I've been spending a lot of time with LibWowArmory lately, largely because the current version is broken due to 3.2 Armory changes. My two main goals are to finish off the character data (I have 3 tabs left), and create a demo application.

Well, today I finished the demo application with all of the existing data I have. It's basically a command line version of the Armory, a 2,339-lines-of-code monster that took way longer than I had hoped it would. Of course, that's because over half of that has to do with the Item Search feature. It's crazy because of all the filters that exist.

What irks me about that, though, is that the Armory is a version behind on some of the filters. For instance, there is no filter for Emblems of Triumph yet. Because of the erratic updating they do to their own website, I've actually been thinking of making an app that downloads some .xml data, compares versions, and alerts me when there has been changes.

There's just so much I want to do programmatically with WoW, but I just don't have time to make it all happen at once. Sometimes I wish I had help on these things, but finding interested developers that are committed to help is a problem that's tough to solve.
