Enhancements for IceHUD and Grid

Here are a pair of add-ons for World of Warcraft that I've been using to tweak the behavior of IceHUD and Grid.

IceHUD_HungerForBlood allows rogues to follow the duration of their HfB buff, and has some coloration niceness to see how many stacks of it you have on you. This was originally the only HfB bar for IceHUD, but now it is actually a replacement for a buggier bar that is already included.

GridOnly is a tiny mod that attaches an extra layout option to Grid, "Hide default party frames." This is for people who want to use Grid and only Grid to view party and raid membership.

Both of these are hosted over on my Google Code project.

Talented Export Popup

If you're using the excellent World of Warcraft talent addon Talented, you may have been frustrated with its exporting feature, which will only output the URL to your talent build to the most recent chat channel. The following (extremely long) macro will take the currently selected talent tree from Talented, and will put the export URL into a popup window, where you can actually copy it.

/script StaticPopupDialogs["Z"] = {text="URL:",button2=OKAY,timeout=0,hasEditBox=1,hasWideEditBox=1,OnShow=function() getglobal(this:GetName().."WideEditBox"):SetText(Talented:ExportWowheadTemplate(Talented.template)) end}; StaticPopup_Show("Z")
