Improved Blizzard UI

Improved Blizzard UI is an attempt to improve the World of Warcraft interface by styling frames, implementing additional functionality and restructuring / hiding existing elements.

The AddOn is compatible with both Modern WoW and Classic WoW.

To get a working installation of Improved Blizzard UI you must first clone the repository to a directory of your choosing.

Execute ./ - This will pull in all dependencies and put them in the libs folder.

This will require you to have the following:

  • ZIP Extension (If on Windows install Cygwin)
  • Ability to open shell files (Eg, Git BASH)
