About AdiBags

AdiBags displays the content of your bags in one view, distributed into several sections using smart filters.

It is heavily inspired by Nargiddley’s Baggins.

Configuration is available through Blizzard addon panel, /adibags chat command or right-clicking on the LDB plugin.

Important note about localized filters: some filters rely on translations from LibBabble-Inventory-3.0 so if some of them behave strangely in your locale, please take a look at the library translation status.

Feedback

Important notice: since v1.6.12-beta-1, AdiBags embeds BugGrabber, an error catching addon. Please check the error is really about AdiBags before reporting them here. I suggest installing BugSack to catch the errors.

Please report any bug or error using the wowace bug tracker (your Curse account works there). The comments section below is not meant to report and track bugs. I won’t reply to bug reports in the comment section anymore.

Some words about submitting bug reports:

  • I do not care about “it doesn’t work, fix it!” messages. I need to know how it failed and a way to reproduce the bug so I can test it and make sure I fix it.
  • Bug reports are not in the “fire and forget” kind of things. I may have to ask you some details.
  • Please check all existing tickets and the “known issues” section below before submitting new ones. Duplicate reports will be rejected on sight.

Features

Most of these features may be configured. Check out the configuration panel ! (using the /adibags chat command or clicking on the bag icon, you have any LDB display)

  • Smart filters are used to distribute items into several sections, including:
    • Item sets of the Blizzard’s gear manager (one section per set),
    • Junk items (whitelist and blacklist available),
    • Quest items,
    • Equipment (items your character can wear),
    • Sections based on item category: trade goods, consumables, recipes, ...
    • Manual filtering (drag and drop items on section header, or add new section from the configuration panel),
    • Ammunition and warlocks’ soul shards,
    • Free space.
  • Smart item sorting inside each section.
  • Smart section layout ; change the setting “Automatic layout update” to control the frequency of updates.
  • Track new items ; use the [N] button resets the “new” flag.
  • Display slot type.
  • Bag tidy ; click on the [T] button.
  • Hide some sections, using the [V] button.
  • Name-based search.
  • Equipped bags (click on the bag icon in the top left corner),
  • Display character money in the backpack.
  • Display character tokens in the backpack.
  • LDB data source, displaying free space.
  • Two bag placement modes (choose one in the configuration panel):
    • Anchored: the bags expand from an anchor towards the center of the screen. The anchor can be unlocked and moved.
    • Manual: move the bags by dragging their title.

Separate modules

I have written two separate modules for AdiBags:

Tips & tricks

  • you can create your own sections using the “manual filter” in filter configuration. You can then drag and drop items on section titles to reassign them ; this works for any section.
  • if you want to highlight new items without putting them into a specific section, edit the “new items” filter priority to put it at the end of the filter list.

Known issues

  • All items are always news / new items are not detected / item sets are not working: AdiBags is (ab)using the game API to emulate some features that is was not meant to do. It relies on some timings that depend on your computer speed, your realm server and/or your network connection (because the game is inherently asynchronous). In some cases, it just does not work and there is almost nothing I can do because I cannot reproduce the bug to diagnose it and to try to fix it. So basically, if the new item or item set filters are not working for you, there is little chance I can fix it.
  • Protected action/addon blocked error: they sometimes happen with AdiBags. Even though my effort, I can not reproduce these. Blizzard taint reports are very buggy, often blaming the wrong addon. As such they are pretty much useless.
  • Please note that prospecting, disenchanting or milling can create new items (e.g. that were not in your inventory yet). This can cause the whole bag to be updated. In this case, the items that were under your mouse cursor may move around. There is no easy solution for this so be cautious.

Things that likely will not be implemented

Anything else than the existing “all-in-one” views

AdiBags has been built around, and optimized for, the idea of the “all-in-one” view. Doing anything would require to redesign big parts of the addons, especially the layout code that is quite complex at the first place.

Anything that requires to scan item tooltips

Tooltip scanning is quite CPU-consuming and above all requires asynchronous programming, since item tooltips would not always be available at the time AdiBags should use them. This would raise the complexity of bag filtering be an order of magnitude and turn AdiBags into a CPU hog.

Some examples what requires to scan the item tooltips:

  • detecting the kind and state of binding: unbound, soulbound, bind-on-pickup, bind-on-equip…
  • detecting already known spells/pets/recipes or faction/race/level/skill/class restrictions ; basically any “red text” in the tooltip.

Guild bank

AdiBags presents you a nice view of your bags but actually they are in a complete mess. With AdiBags, there is no need and no way to tidy up the items in the actual bags. Guilds usually try to keep their bank tidy. What would happen if some people in a guild used AdiBags for the guild bank ? Well, they would mess up the guild bank content and people NOT using AdiBags would have to deal with that mess. I can hear the screams from there. So that is why I will not implement guild bank.

Alt bags and bank

AdiBags is not an alt bags/bank viewer. If you want to keep track of what your alt owns, I suggest using an addon like BagSync.

Full bag skinning

Basic skinning is available using LibSharedMedia-1.0: you can choose the bag font, background and border, as well as the color.

Comprehensive in-game filter/section editor

According to my experience with Baggins, comprehensive editor is awful to write as an author and awful to use as an user. Hence I focus on creating filters that have a smart built-in behavior and only a few options. I try to avoid the 20% of features that would require 80% of development effort.

    Automatic layout update does not work. I'm sure many people are not using this because of the constant layout changes. Everytime you vendor something the layout changes and moves everything and you can't find what you are trying to sell.

  • #361

    I would love to know if there's a way to sort items by expansion, or by specific ilvls...  I've been running all the old instances and raids to finish up achievements and some xmog sets, and some way other than sorting all the cloth gear (I'm a mage) in an ilvl heirarcy would be wonderful.

    I would really love to see Masque-Addon support for the item-icons.
    I guess it would be the simplest approach to adding item icon skinning :)

    Great work, anyways!

    awesome addon like everyone said- but im having a minor issue. if i use something in my bags it doesnot remove the item form the bag. for example if im at the farm and plant a seed the seed gets planted but still shows in the bag. if i close and reopens it updates. is this a setting i messed up or is there something more to this??

  • #358

    there are three little buttons in the top right hand corner: T (this is tidy so if you use an item and it does disappear from your bags, it will tidy up your bags so they look nice again.) then the other one you should use is the N button. this will enable you to refresh your bags when you have a lot of 'new' items. I can't quite remember the third button but that should help you too with this problem. hope this helps! Smile

  • #359

    thanks for the reply- totally forgot about those buttons idk why. Tongue out

    Fixed size

    I love everything about the addon except the constant resizing.  I can't move bulk items becuase it updates after every item I remove.  Could the update only happen when force if items have been removed since the last update?  I really want to use all the great filtering capabilities, but it's just not worth fixing the mistakes made because the window changed size and moved all the items around.

    Bank Sort Assitance :)

    Hello,

    This addon is amazing, and I was fiddling around with settings and couldn't find anything along lines of what i'm looking for, figured I would ask cause it is likely i'm missing it.

    As a Blacksmith I tend to make and hold on items to sell on AH when there is a bit of a shortage, unforunately items get lost in my rather large bank, so i was wondering if there was a way to seperate equipment into two sections, one ilvl 450 and lower, and other 451 and higher. 

    Another sort which would be useful instead of that is BoE Vs Soulbound sort for equipment.

     

    Thank you for your time and absolute wonderful addon. :)

  • #351

    i'd like to see a plugin that saves all your items (bags,banks, etc) to an xml file, with all relevant informations (quality, slot, type, etc). would be nice

    Things Addons Can't Do

    Addons cannot access anything outside of WoW.

    • You cannot write to files on the hard disk.

     

  • #353

    hmm... maybe generate a text windows where you could copy&paste then.

    something like:

    taut dragonhide shoulderpads | ilvl 77 | shoulder | leather | 19389

     

  • #349

    Don't suppose it's possible to add the capability to "collapse" categories, maybe into a single icon that I can click to expand (and in "expanded mode" an icon to re-collapse it).

    I play on laptop with a 13" screen, so it fills up real quick. : /

    Anyway excellent addon. Thanks for the hard work.

  • #347

    I cant live without this addon! I would love to see an option for it to work on the guild bank as well.

    i second this opinion.  i motion for a vote...

     

     

    great addon personally better than baggins in my opinion

  • #345

    Any plans to make the icons border, etc changable like the bags? Be nice to some how work in a thin border icon to match a bunch of other UI's out there (e.g. ElvUI)
