About

LOTRO Plugin Compendium (LPC) is a utility application to assist in installing and updating lotro LUA plugins. It attempts to take some of the leg work away from user having to manually download, create folders, and unzip download.

This is a platform independent version made available by request of the Mac and Linux crowd. Currently it has no installer, so while you could use it for windows, I would recommend you use the windows specific version http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info663-LOTROPluginCompendium.html

Disclaimer
This application is an attempt to automate a manual process and help make things easier for LOTRO users. That said, if it does not work right, please report it below. I take no responsibility of it does not work on your PC or messes things up. I would, however, like to know about any problems you encounter so future versions can be fixed.

Known Issues
  • Please configure the Download Path on configuration panel for mac. It looks like mac might change the temp folder location. Since your settings are persisted and reloaded on startup, this is a bad thing if it goes away. I'd recommend setting to /tmp
  • Lack of Installer
  • in plugin description xml feed shows escaped characters.
  • Turbine Lotro Client seems to change the install location for Plugins. This can be configured by pointing the Install Path setting (on Configuration Tab) to something like
    ~/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient/Plugins

Requirements
Java JRE/JDK 6+

Mac does not come with java by default. Please download http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...s-2133155.html

Change Log
1.2
  • distribution for 1.2 was not properly updated.

1.2
  • fixed security issue preventing addins from being downloaded and installed
  • fix mac bug where many folders would get created if you manually typed in plugin path in configuration
  • added support for falling back to alternative rss data feed incase primary feeds go down again in future
  • fixed bug where prior version wasn't getting displayed correctly for plugins that were already installed.


1.1
  • fix mac bug where quitting application doesn't save settings
  • changed default download location for mac to /tmp
  • packaged java app as a mac application
  • made new higher rez icon for mac installer

1.0 Initial Release
Woohoo!

Silly difference

I just noticed that V1.1 is spelled:
Plugin Compendium.app -- while 1.3 is spelled
PluginCompendium.app (i.e. no space)

ARGH Apple can be annoying

Annoying. . .

It seems that AFTER upgrading to Yosemite AND again AFTER upgrading to El Capitan open must re-install Java!

Now running with Java 8-73, and everything appears to work fine.

LOL - Plugin Compendium won't update itself :)

LPC doesn't update itself.
Unless I'm missing something -- I got the notification from LOTROINTERFACE that Version 1.3 of LOTRO Plugin Compendium (Mac / Linux) was available.
(Interestingly I never got a notification for 1.2.)

So I did a quick launch of 1.1 to let it update... guess what - no LPC update. -- so I guess that's an enhancement request! (Self update capability)

So I downloaded the package -- OOPS Gatekeeper strikes again:
“PluginCompendium.app” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer."

Not a biggie -- just add to the "Read Me" under Mac:
If you get a pop-up from Apple's Gatekeeper stating:
“PluginCompendium.app” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer."
1- Click OK
2- Open -- System Preferences/Security & Privacy
3- In the general tab you should see near the bottom:
"PluginCompendium.app" was blocked from opening because it is not from an identified developer.
and a button "Open Anyway"
Clicking that button will allow it to run, this time and in the future.
4- You will then get another pop-up:
"PluginCompendium.app is an application downloaded from the internet. Are you sure you want to open it?
Click "Open."
=====
All of that said -- I now have to figure out which JRELoaderror is being thrown.

Version 1.1 continues to work fine, but not 1.3

I'm running El Capitan 10.11.3

I apologize. It looks like the updated version I uploaded the other day, had the correct Mac version, but the linux one was missing the security fixes. The copy I had local to my PC was working properly.

Thank you all for reporting the problem.

I'm using:

- Linux Mint 17.2
- OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.4) (7u95-2.6.4-0ubuntu0.14.04.1)
- OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.95-b01, mixed mode)
- java version "1.7.0_95"

I can't get PluginCompendium (version 1.2) to work. No matter what plugin I try to install / upgrade, it says: "Unable to install XXX. Please try again later. (it is likely being updated on lotrointerface).

I don't see any error / warning messages on terminal, is there a way to turn on more reporting?
It is doing this to me as well. I'll see what I can do.

This is one of those yes and no situations.

Yes, the API for pluginompendium is working again.

No, the download information for some?many plugins is not correct (i.e. is failing).

I have more than 20 plugins I randomly use and monitor. Some update and some do not.

A good example is Combat Analysis -- it is highlighted to be updated, but generates the 403 error for: . . . download881

I know that this particular Plugin has been moved, reworked, renamed, etc. over time and was just recently updated as I got an email from lotrointerface about CA. I can download it directly from the app page, but not from the compendium.

The question is obviously -- where is this information maintained?
Is it the entry in the file CombatAnalysis.plugincompendium (which shows download881) or is there a lotrointerface permissions issue?
You are correct. There was a permission error. I uploaded a new version last nigt that is able to download to download w/o getting the 403 error. Please test that if you would. Thanks

I tried substituting that url in the configuration tab, and got the exact same message. This is frustrating! Any other ideas? I am not a tech person, so I struggle with these things.

I just PM'd Cairenn:

I just ran LPC (Mac/Linux) which I have had installed and been using for ages -- and got an error message, which I believe is an internal LPC message:

Problem while retrieving plugin listing

Server returned HTTP response code 403: for URL: http://api.lotrointerace.com/fav/plugincompendium.xml

A 403 has many different possible causes, not least being simple access issues.

El Capitan -10.11.3

Re: LPC on Yosemite

@Magill re. yosemite

This is actually a stupid bug/restriction that only relates to the java stub/wrapper .app.

If you right click the .app package and show contents, then navigate to:

Contents > Resources > Java

you can double click the .jar file in there and it will run fine on Java 1.8 on Yosemite.
