Upys Raid Tools - Transfer DKP
Allows the easy import and export of core data to and from Upys Raid Tools http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/upys-raid-tools/
When would I use this?
If you are managing your DKP, Raid Signups and Loot in an external system like http://bbdkp.net (like Bizarro do) this module allows you to Import or Export the key tables being; DKP, Loot, Attendance and Signups
Why id this needed
Well basically there is a series of data that is managed in the DB file for UpysRaidTools, the issue with overwriting this file with new data is that you loose all the options, settings and data not directly related to the areas mentioned above.
That's Interesting, how does it work?
Well basically this support addon allows you to do a clean overwrite every time you need to update the data (i.e. before a raid). You then use the "Import" functionality to bring that into the core addon for use. You can then export at the end of the night to give you a set of data that can be used on a website etc.
What do I need to do?
You need to do one or both of the following;
Build the Output UpysRaidToolsTransferDKP.lua file
Build a program that will grab data from a DB and build the LUA file for you
Build the Import UpysRaidToolsTransferDKP.lua script
Build a program that will take the data within the LUA file and process the data
You can get example formats and extract scripts in the manual here: http://www.upyursh.com/files/UpysRaidTools_UserGuide_v2.pdf
