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.

    excellent :)


  • #788

    You could always use a chat addon like chatter, then make the background solid and place it over the left side.

  • #775

    This should include an edit to the default chat frame so it will integrate better. Maybe skin the buttons on it, or remove them entirely, or have them only show up on hover (and skin them still), so it will match and fit better.

    If I knew how I would do it myself. But I am just now learning LUA and not very good yet. However, I have been a graphic designer since 2004, when WoW released. I have worked for various companies, including gaming companies. So maybe someday I'll come out with something interesting.

    But for now, I use SpartanUI just like I did back in the day.

    What chat modification addons would you recommend I use to go with this, so it fits better? The default chat box is ugly and attrocious...

    The purpose of this addon is bars.... period.  If you want the chat different there are several other addons that can do that.... PRAT for one.


  • #777

    I have always used Prat.  With SpartanUI 3.1.x I am looking to add Raid Frames and improve customization of player frames. If i have time i will see what i can add to chat  but i can deffinitly add this to the ToDo list for 3.2.x

  • #793

    If i ever do more to the Chat will will be in the form of "SpartanUI Chat" and i have no plans for that now. i like prat, and I have plenty to manage right now as 70% of the code is 3+ years old

  • #786

    I would suggest that you leave the chat alone.  I had a version that changed it and made it totally un-usable because all of the buttons were missing.  You could not see messages at all after they scrolled off the chat box.

    This addon has NOTHING at all to do with chat and if someone wants it different then they should install a different addon that does that. 


  • #774

    I have been using Spartan since the Original authors created it..... once they left I had to install several different versions that others started working on..... some good, but NONE were as good as this one.  I am so happy that this addon has been taken over by someone that knows what he is doing.

    MANY kuddos to wutname1 for taking over this project and doing a fantastic job with it.


  • #772

    After updating SpartanUI, it keeps deleting my Bartender4 addon entirely. Like completely, Bartender4 folder in my addons folder is gone...

  • #776

    ... uhhh .... i got nothing. :) Are you updating via the curse client? did you set spartanui to use the beta or alpha of spartan?

  • #782

    Ah ok, I get what you're saying. Yeah I've been using the same v2.6.1 since Wrath. xD lol

  • #781

    Well the old SpartanUI (before i took over with 3.0) had Bartender installed with it. so if you were updating from that i could see the curse client deleting it thinking it was cleaning up just spartanui. Let me know if it happens when you go from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2

  • #780

    Yeah I'm using Curse Client and same boat as ramakgaming, that replied before me, I not sure how the alpha/beta thing works, I just pressed the Update button and it completely deleted my Bartender4 addon after that. lol

    I had no idea you could set it to use the alpha or beta... how do you do that? I don't see any documentation on that.

  • #771

    I am having a slight problem with this addon, the player UI change that is has in the screenshot 2 above it wont change that and I have no clue why. Its keeping the original look. Please email me at [email protected] if you have some information of why it wont work and how to fix it.
