A simple error manager. When an error is caught it will blink a small minimap icon to inform you. Clicking the icon opens a panel listing all errors. Clicking an error shows a full stack trace, handy to copy/paste into a bug report.

You can also access the panel via an LDB launcher or by typing /err or /tekerr

_DevPadEditor

World of Warcraft > AddOns >

my forks
https://github.com/spiralofhope/_DevPad
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.

However, when I now think back on it, I see a big difference between the "expertise" 10,000 hours of intuitive interest, versus 10,000 hours of practice with a learned skill.
