learn lua to fix favorite addons that don't work?
« on: August 22, 2019, 07:45:59 PM »
so, how difficult is this? i don't mean anything as complicated as autobar. more like this one:

or is that more complicated than i think it might be?

my limit is minor changes that suit me - like commenting out autobar hearthstones for retail.

thanks ;)

I'm not sure how to answer that.  I've been programming forever, so my viewpoint is pretty biased.  I can tell you that lua is one of the simpler languages, so it's not a bad place to start.  Ultimately, it depends on how stubborn you are. :) 

Programming can be frustrating at the best of times, and Blizzard doesn't always make things easy.

It likely is more complicated than you might be expecting, but it really feels pretty great when you solve a problem, or add a new feature.

Cobol, ugh.  Clearly you have a high enough pain threshold to tackle lua. :)
