About SpartanUI


Is designed to free your screen by moving a majority of the interface elements to the bottom. It is managed and maintained by Libidos of Azgalor. You can now join the project on facebook where i will be posting polls and asking other general questions about the direction of the addon.

Required Addons

Installation Note

Disable oUF if you have it installed, This is a addon library used for unit frames SpartanUI has this built in and having a version not compatible with SpartanUI will break things.

Slash Commands

  • /sui (Shows options window)
  • /spin (Toggles Spin Cam)
  • /sui version (Shows which version of SpartanUI you are using)

I found a bug how do i tell you? How do i request a feature?

Please, open a ticket on the web or right click on SpartanUI in Curse client and select "Report a Bug" .


Q. How do i Move my focus/party/raid?

A. As of 3.1 All frames are of the mentioned frames are movable by holding Alt and dragging no need to unlock or lock them with a command or button.

Q. I changed a option but nothing changed.

A. Some of the new options in 3.1 for Raid/Party Frames require a /reload to be done after changing them, no it will not always be like this but in order to get it out in time for MOP launch day some convenience had to be sacrificed.

  • #1155

    Hi, tell me please, do you can to do support of addon Dominos ( and also do possibility fully to hide a minimap from a center? Sorry for bad english )

  • #1154

    Really nice looking UI - only problem I ran into was not being able to control the party frames enough - such as making them run horizontally or adding the player frame to it for healing (unless I'm missing something)

  • #1151

    I wanna say i really like this addon, the only problem i currently have is that i can not lock the action bars plz help

  • #1152

    you can  lock the action bars in the bartender options

  • #1157

    This is the first post in the FAQ above


    Q. How do i Move my focus/party/raid?

    A. As of 3.1 All frames are now movable by holding Alt and dragging no need to unlock or lock them with a command or button.

  • #1153

    Thanks for the help, also wondering if there is anyway to move the focus frame? I clicked unlock frame but I still can't move it.

  • #1150
    time duration

    first off i want to start by sayin this is an awesome addon  and i love how it makes my screen look less cluttered so thank you for this great addon.   

    i have serched all through the addon options and through the comments here but didnt find what im looking for so if you or someone can point my in the direction to put a time duration on the buff and debuff icons instead of the cooldown look.  if its not a feature then is there any chance that i could be added for the next update.  thanks again for this addon

  • #1149

    Hello! This UI is completely customizable?

  • #1145
    Buffs and Debuffs

    Someone please help me. Player buffs and debuffs are in the default location in the top right instead of above my player frame. I've reinstalled this addon twice and I don't know how to fix it. Cry

  • #1165

    I had to do some digging in old posts to find this :(

    "Change - SpartanUI no longer hides blizzard buffs, blizz does not allow addons to turn off buffs without some lengthy work arounds.
    Removed - Player buffs are no longer displayed on the player frame."

    You have to turn the feature you want on in the options. It's not on by default.

  • #1144

    Hi, love the ui, thanks for all the hard work. Any plans to add a way to move the rest of the ui elements; the buff/debuff area, quest info, etc. Also will the boss/arena frames be in the 5.1 update?

  • #1141

    Got this after creating a new profile and then selecting a different frame in the options.

    1x SpartanUI-3.1.3\scripts\Global-Framework.lua:241: attempt to perform arithmetic on field "alpha" (a nil value)
    SpartanUI-3.1.3\scripts\Global-Framework.lua:241: in function "member"
    AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-57.lua:249: in function <AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:197>
    AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-57.lua:1169: in function <AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:1055>
    AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-57.lua:1588: in function "FeedGroup"
    AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0-57.lua:1513: in function <AceConfigDialog-3.0\AceConfigDialog-3.0.lua:1493>
    (tail call): ?

    I also noticed on a previous charater, when I created a new profile using the "copy from" option, then logged on a different character, the profile I created didn't exist.

     Not sure if this belongs with you or the Ace author of AceConfigDialog, but as your the Spartan arthor using the lib, will leave it with you to report if required.

    Profiles don't currently work right. He's working on it, it hasn't been working right for quite a while now. But he probably isn't sure yet how to fix it. As he goes though, he'll figure it out - once you start learning LUA, it doesn't stop if you keep trying. The more you learn, the better you get so expect it fixed eventually, as long as he's still developing this.
