An Illusion! What are you hiding?

It’s been a while since the last update - Legion just has so much to do! As you can see, has recieved a facelift! Almost everything should be working but there might be a few bits of display related wonkiness.

When I first started this project I thought it might be used by a few people that enjoy tinkering with their WeakAuras, and it would be pretty neat if it could reach maybe five thousand users per month during peak times. Wago took off significantly faster and is recieving more than double that - PER DAY.

Some requests were not optimized properly and the sheer numbers have been slowing everything down. I’ve gone through and refactored pretty much everything and it all seems to be running much quicker now. At least on my test server, we’ll have to see how things hold up.

More to come soon!

New Features Trifecta

I know I haven’t had many updates lately but today we have three highly user-requested features added to the site!

  1. Automatic categories

    • When importing a WeakAura, Wago will now look at your load conditions and auto-assign some categories based on what it finds. Currently all class and specs are detected, as well as Legion raid encounters. Non-combat is also detected for any WA set to load out of combat.
    • All previous imports without any user-defined categories have gone through this system to fill out the categories some more.
  2. Search by username

    • The advanced search panel now includes a search Username option. I do intend to fill out matching user results with some more details such as number of imports etc.
  3. Expire option

    • When importing you can now set an expiration time from 15 minutes up to three months. For logged in users this defaults to Never. Guest users default to three months (but can still select Never).

As usual if you have any feedback or ideas, come join the Official WeakAuras Discord!

Welcome to Beta

Several updates have been added over the last few days and I am now comfortable upgrading the site’s status from Alpha to Beta.

  1. ElvUI Import Strings

    • ElvUI profile strings are now supported on Wago and work much the same way that WeakAuras do. You can view the full table data and (if you know what you’re doing) edit it by hand and save your changes to create a new string.
    • Also like imported WeakAuras, you can also include a description, screenshots and videos of your ElvUI setup.
  2. Videos

    • Did I mention videos? Youtube and Twitch videos can now be added to all of your imports.
  3. Search

    • Advanced Search can now find all the content with additional filters. Search specific types of content, search inside of custom code, find what you want. In the coming days I’ll add some of these options to category and profile views as well.
  4. Images

    • User Crelam has spent some time with and created over TWO THOUSAND custom media files that can be used in any WeakAura. Star your favorites to add them to your custom MyWago addon!

Collect'm All!

No geocaching here. All Weakauras can now be included in Collections!

When logged in you’ll see the new My Collections dropdown on any aura page, which allows you to create a new collection or add/remove the current WA to any of your existing collections. This can be used to organize groups of auras or to create a sort of package of auras for guilds they can share the link with. I’ll be adding more options in the coming days but do let me know your feedback on Discord.

In other, probably boring news, I’ve refactored some of the code and re-organized the database. Things should be a bit speedier and it will help a great deal for the upcoming Advanced Search options.

Hello World

This is the new DevLog for I’ll keep this updated with new features as they get added.

Here are the main features that are currently available:

  1. WeakAura Import Strings
    • Yup, those giant nonsense-looking strings can be imported from the game directly into Wago. You can then modify the data and generate a new string you can import back into the WA2 addon in-game!
    • The editor can pick out (most) custom functions and let you edit them directly with code editor. You can make and save changes to your WeakAura without changing the URL.
    • There is an Embed option to embed the string directly on your own website. This will automatically show the most recent version.
  2. Media
    • Images can be uploaded and converted to/from .tga, .blp, .png or .jpg so that they can be used in-game.
  3. Code Snippits
    • When importing a string you can instead import some lua code. The importer will automatically detect it and save your submission as a Lua code snippit.
  4. Favorites
    • Star anything - Import strings, media, snippits and you can easily track them on your “My Starred” list under the user menu when logged in (top right).
  5. MyWago Addon
    • All starred media, plus any media that you’ve uploaded yourself can be packaged and downloaded as a custom-built MyWago addon. Place this in your WoW addons directory like any other addon and all of the media will be available in-game. This works just like the Shared Media addon.
    • Yes you can post comments! To enable linkable URLs you must be verified as a human. Currently the only method of proving this to Wago is by logging in with a account with a max level character.
