Modular information display
This post is not a request but rather a place to brainstorm ideas if and how a modular information display similar to TitanBar could be implemented. While TitanBar has a great amount of options and can be customized to personal taste, expanding it with new "controls" is tedious and every control has to be approved and integrated by Habna, TitanBar's developer. What I have in mind however (inspired by similar systems in other MMOs) is creating a framework that can create a display similar to TitanBar, with the information on it provided by different plugins that can each be written by a different author and even existing plugins having the possibility to create "controls" so their functionality is accessed by a click on a TitanBar control instead of a floating button (travelwindow, combatanalysis, recipetracker come to mind) or shell command (festivalbuddy, hytboldassistant).
I am a programmer myself but have little experience working with plugins in LOTRO yet. I am looking for more experienced people to give me input about an API for such a framework, and how to set it up in regards to software architecture; ideas what controls could be implemented can be discussed later when the framework exists.
