Question / Hopeful request

With the premise that I really don't know anything about lua and programming Addons, I was wondering how difficult it would be to integrate healcomm to GridEnhanced and if someone would be up for taking a shot at it. Grid would be my choice of frames but the fact that it misses healcomm is a big drawback

If you have programming experience in other languages aside from Lua you should be able to pick it up relatively quick.

If Lua would be your first foray, it's going to be tricky.

 

Would LunaUnitFrames be out of the question? It already supports HealComm if you have it installed.

They're very good and configurable unit frames.

Unfortunately I don't have experience in any programming language

I use Luna at the moment but to be honest I'm not that keen on them. I keep having issues where frames do not update in instances, or party members are shown out of range when I'm actually standing on top of them. I'm sure it's not a conflict with other add ons as I have tried running just with Luna and it still happens and I do not get any error message either otherwise I would have opened an issue on git. 

Grid has a different philosophy in what it shows and how it does it, and it just work with my brain :)

Do you have a link to latest GridEnhanced? Source control would be preferable.

I did a quick google and found a couple links from other private server forums but not sure which is the most recent.

I can take a look at adding HealComm support to it but no ETA (I'm not currently playing on any private server).

 

Edit: I'll take a look at using 0.11 as a starting point. Since I don't play currently (or have a high level healer) you'll have to help test it :P

Edit2: Ok this is going to take a little time, GridEnhanced already has a mini-module of its own for ten healing spells ("Holy Light", "Flash of Light", "Flash Heal", "Greater Heal", "Heal", "Healing Touch", "Lesser Healing Wave", "Healing Wave", "Regrowth", "Prayer of Healing") using its own prefix to allow communication between GridEnhanced users. It's going to be a little more complicated if I want to keep support for GridEnhanced users that haven't upgraded and support users that have HealComm standalone or from LUF or this version of GridEnhanced I'm working on.

@Roadblock Thank you, I really appreciate you offering to take a look at it.

 

Of course I'll be more than happy to test it whenever you have something ready.

 

I have tried to find a version control but it looks like the author only posted it in a couple of forums and 0.11 seems to be the latest version
