my fork https://github.com/spiralofhope/TidyBar
Issue tracker: https://github.com/spiralofhope/TidyBar/issues

Reconfigures for your action bars. It retains the design of the standard interface, which reduces the screen clutter.

An absolutely spectacular simplification of the UI.

  • Brings three of your bars to the middle.
  • Brings the remaining two bars to the right-hand side, and hides them unless your mouse is over that area.
  • Takes the blizzard stuff, and hides it in the bottom-right corner unless your mouse is over that area.

_DevPadEditor

https://github.com/spiralofhope/_DevPad.GUI

An in-game text editor and addon authoring tool (Lua).

Keep notes with it, write Lua scripts, or prototype addon concepts in its trimmed down development environment. Organize your scripts into folders and share them with other _DevPad users. Scripts can run automatically on login like mini addons, and can call each other like libraries or dependencies.

An absolutely spectacular AddOn that I'm not sure I can live without.

This is not quite a live projects -- there's lots to learn!

This is primarily for movie-DVDs, with instructions for Linux.

Use cases:

  • Backup discs you own, before disc rot sets in.
  • Rip discs and keep them safe

    • e.g. parents with little kids (or drunken friends) who damage discs.
  • Playing on DVD-driveless devices

    • (or devices where the DVD player has stopped working)
    • Such as a phone or portable media player.
      - e.g. a portable player for road trips.
