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.

    Better raid frames and Arena frames would be nice in the past with spartanui ive had to disable player and party frames becouse in arena i cant see my own team mates or enemys frames at all


  • #816

    Dont know about area right now. Party frames are getting a complete revamp. I cant heal with them how they are.

  • #796

    Thank you for updating, its been a long time

  • #789

    With the latest update (3.0.2), do I still need to have my preferred release type set as Alpha or whatever, or should I have it set to Release now?

  • #792

    What ever you want, Release is fine now.  I will be moving mostly to a Release / Beta process now that i have the ground work laied for all future versions. This first week was the inital getting on its feet for MOP and on.

    Re: SpartanUI version updates

    Just updated to the new version 3.0.2 and had to access all of my toons on different servers to RE- change the settings in the General tab.  Is there anyway that you cannot re-install the default options on updates?  I have 30 toons and it takes alot of time to change them everytime you send a new version.

    Secondly, I would like a way to get rid of that GREY background that goes all across the bottom behind the bars.  It serves no purpose and just obstructs the view.

    Thanks for all you are doing to keep the GREAT addon going.  I have used it for years and really don't think I could do without it.


  • #791

    On your DB comments/issues:
    3.0.2 Moved settings from a per-user system (saved in WTF/<account>/server/<Character>/savedvariables) to a account wide system (WTF/<account>/savedvariables) using the Ace3 DB system this allowed profiles to be implimented in the /sui options as well. With this massive transition it was not worth delaying the release of it to code a conversion tool.

    From 3.0.2 you should never have a massive change that changes the entire DB. well unless blizz goes and done something stupid for addons in 6.0 Laughing

    As for the Grey Background:

    • 3.0.0/3.0.1 was just getting 2.6.1 up to MOP
    • 3.0.2 - was converting all the settings to GUI based and converting the backend DB, as well as adding options where there were none so i could have the staging ground.
    • 3.1.0 - Will be my first true update right now i am planing on Party Unit Frame options to make it healer friendly (Im a resto duid i cant stand how they are for healing)
    • 3.2.0 - Raid Frames! and even more customization options 
    • 3.3.0 - dont know!
    I want 3.1 out before MOP release, 3.2 will be around MOP maybe sooner depends on how things go. There will be more in 3.1 and 3.2 those are just the main items i want to hit for them

    really good job what you've done here wutname1, finally an SUI that looks good and has a really nice options ui :).

    Any chance you could add the options for removal of Backdrops as i dont use the left side and use that space to expand my chat?

    keep up the good work mate

    You can turn of unused action bar background areas in the options.

  • #805

    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
