Where do i go to learn about making add-ons?

    I got referred to this page when I was interested in knowing how a certain add-on worked.
    I think it may also have the info you need to get started on your first add-on (it explains quite a lot about the API). ;)

    Hey, glad to see someone interested in learning add-ons!
    The first thing you'll want to do is learn Lua. It's the language that Addons are coded in. You can ignore all the file I/o stuff tho.
    Next, check out wiki.esoui.com as mentioned. The most recent and probably best tutorial is the notebook one by sirinsidiator.
    If you get stuck, head over to esoui.com forums, and you can make a post there for help, or check out he esoui gitter chat for (sometimes) quicker responses or for (sometimes) interesting chat

    After looking through the wiki a bit and maybe trying some of the tutorials, I'd recommend poking through and trying to modify a relatively small addon that you already use.

    There are several challenges in getting started with Addons:
    • how files get loaded and how scoping works.
    • how lua interacts with the UI xml files
    • the actual limitations in the API (this part can be disappointing)
    • inspecting the running game to troubleshoot (my command history addon below can make that a little more convenient)

    There's a good bit of code to write before your addon can do anything particularly interesting, so be patient.
    PC/NA - Nightfighters, Raid Leader and Officer
    Lilith Arujo - DC sorc tank/dps/healer - Dro-m'Athra Destroyer, Gryphon Heart, Grand Warlord
    Lilith Tortorici - DC templar trials healer

    Notable Completions:
    vAS (72k), vMoL HM (160k), vAA HM (135k), vHRC HM, vSO HM (141k), vHoF HM (168k), vCR+3(129k), vDSA 45k, vMA 591k

    Yes, those are both great ways to get into add-on development. There's many simple add-ons around that you can also use as a framework. You should know that /script will run Lua commands, and /zgoo mouse will also let you inspect something's in the game if you have the zgoo add-on.
