BarKeep  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 50400.03

BarKeep

** Now with support of bars that only appear on mouseover via the optional BarKeep_BarFader add-on. BarKeep_BarFader can be found in the 'Optional Files' tab. **

Here are the main features:
  • All the main action buttons can be configured to have from 1-12 buttons.
  • All the main action bars can be reconfigured to have up to 12 rows, so you can have 6 buttons x 2 rows, 3 buttons by 4 rows etc. This is done still using the Blizzard button code for compatibility.
  • All the main action bars can be scaled independently of one another.
  • Stance bar, possess bar, and pet bar can all be relocated to where the user wants them to be.
  • All bars can be hidden if you want, some using the Blizzard options from the interface menu, others using BarKeep.
  • The options are configured by a GUI accessed from /barkeep or /bk.
  • It uses an event / hook based structure for minimal CPU usage.
I want to say thanks to the previous developers of this CleanBar & CleanBarAdvanced since BarKeep would not be possible without their initial help.

So why use BarKeep?

It enables complete rearrangement and scaling of the Blizzard bars and so has some advantages over the traditional bar mod:
  1. It uses Blizzards buttons (and button code). So pretty much it's always compatible if Blizzard make any changes.
  2. Its really light in use - doesn't use a lot of memory and CPU cycles.
  3. It seems pretty stable as a result of the above.
  4. It'll work with cooldown, ranged mods that work with Blizzard buttons and also ButtonFacade with another small mod.
Commands:

/barkeep - show the config screen.
/bk - show the config screen.

FAQ:
  • I can't see all the bars when I first use the addon. All I see are the '+'s that enable the bar placement? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to set which bars are active or not, just as you would the Blizzard bars.
  • How do I set the Key Bindings? - Use the Blizzard Key Bindings interface to set the bindings for all the bars.
  • How do I lock the actions on the bars? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to lock the Blizzard bars.
  • How do I permanently show the empty buttons? - Use the Blizzard 'Action Bars' tab in the interface menu to show the empty button grid.
Future Plans:
  • Bug fixes once identified.
  • A BarKeep_XP optional module to manage the XP bar.
  • A reconfiguration of the mod to easily allow for additional layout types for the bars. This should be fairly easy to do, it'll just require a some coding in BarKeep.lua and a change to the configuration screen, but could take some time as I'll make the changes slowly and test carefully.

Known Issues:
  • None.

That empty bar could be the shapeshifter bar, castbar or the pet bar. But generally locking the bars will make them all disappear until needed.

On other news: I have a update coming (currently being tested) that cleans up a lot of coding from the original mod and paves the way for setting out the bars in different sized rows (e.g. 6 buttons x 2 rows, 4 buttons x 3 rows etc.). Once I figure the best way to add this option to the menu structure, I'll code it in.

Just a few questions.

Recently joined WoW, found add-ons and such.
I'd like to know how to make it that my ActionBar's can be activated via the F keys? I don't know if this is just a WoW UI selection or from your mod itself.
If you can help it'd be great.
Also; I've noticed there are 3 spare '+' buttons around my screen that seem to do nothing but move about, as well as an empty bar of sorts; Possibly for rage/energy? It is movable but I don't know if it works, being the paladin that I am.
Thanks, Dayfled.

Edit: Found that if I lock my bars; the spare '+' buttons disappear, aswell as the "mystery bar".

OK that'll be the on-update throttle - its caused by not relocating the bars quickly enough after the Blizzard code has shifted them. I'll lower that value and post an update.

"Jumping" bars

I sometimes see my bars "jump" up when my character is moving.

It's more like a small jerkiness actually.

Thanks. This is exactly the simple kind of action bar mod I was looking for. It doesn't totally try to recreate your bars. It just cuts the clutter out of the Blizzard defaults and allows you to move and scale them. All the other popular addons in this category try to do too much, and too many of them tend to bug out when I go into and out of stealth on my rogue.

I think I've found the main menu bar bug, so I'll look to test this ASAP and post an update if the fix works.

It works so I put through an update.

Hi All,

Thanks for all the notes - I'll look into these over the next week or so to see if I can replicate them and correct any bugs. Apologies for the tardy response - I just like to play.

Addon rocks ! It is very suitable for rogues and other classes too !
Only 2 problems appeared in the latest version ( but its really annoying )
-Can't move main actionbar at all
- It would be better if there will be 2 more buttons on menuframe ( your lil' inventory with key frames and who list key ) or better to say ( blizzard default :P )

Many thanks!

Thumbs up A bar bug?

Platy,
I love your mod! Absolutely love it! This has the best layout and highest flexibility of all the barmods I have tried. I hate having layers and obstructions in my viewing area. Your clean bar mod is genius. So thank you so much for this gift.
I am having a couple issues i hope you can help with. On my utility bar, the left 2 buttons dont work, my social button is missing, and the help button is covered up by the "looking for more" button. Hence I cannot access my guild window or friends list, etc.
The other problem is a small one, but my bottom casting bar is locked in place and willnot move for repositioning. This limits my particular placement preferences a little, but doesn't really lower function. All the other bars move correctly.
Lastly, I have a short "wish list". I FERVENTLY want to change my petbar to vertical......please, please, please??? lol. Secondly, can you also make the 3 main casting bars available for vertical positioning as well? (I'm one of those people who like to rearrange the furniture all the time. hahaha )

A new Fan,
Janeera

Edda - the bars are all now independently movable (although why I bothered with the tone of your entry I don't know).

Well it's an update of an older add-on to run in TBC and is just limited to that functionality. The bars arrangement is fixed although the placing of the 'block of bars' can be moved - but that works for me. Bongos or something similar has more options, but is also a lot more draining on the resources.

It's great to see this addon brought back to life in TBC. I'm having an issue though. The bottom left action bar is showing up stacked under the main action bar, instead of above it. The bottom right action bar shows up over top of the primary action bar, so that I can't see it or move skills around on the buttons.
Hi, the 2.9 version should correct this issue. Let me know if that's not the case as I've put a lot of work in to locking the bars in place.
