Macaroon is amazing. I've been using it since it came out, replacing Trinity Bars (same maker). The modules you can get for it are pretty in-depth as well.You are not limited to having a bar be only 10 buttons long, with Macaroon you can have a 1 button bar, a 20 button bar, or pretty much anything else you wish. All can be set to be hidden (until mouse-over), change with your spec and/or stance, alt, ctrl, shift modifiers, in-combat, out of combat, the whole works.I recommend starting off simply and go a bar at a time in setting it up. One major thing to note is Macaroon does NOT store your buttons on the server like default/dominos/bartender does. All the button and bar placements are kept on your system. If for whatever reason you play on multiple computers you will have to either set it up on the others, or copy over your profile.

I absolutely love Macaroon, but I've been under the impression that it's no longer supported so I've been trying to wean myself off Macaroon and move over to Bartender. I was kind of suprised to see Macaroon so beloved and highlighted on this site, if it truly isn't support anymore. So, hopefully, someone can help bring me up to speed. Can we expect that Mac will continue to receive support/updates and (hopefully) work as we head into Cataclysm, or am I right to get myself an alternate bar mod?

Sounds great, I will try it out!I do not like cooldown bars, and do not like seeing my action buttons. I have my keybindings and remember them. For cooldowns, I like to use OmniCC, and I made a separate bar on bartender only for my cooldown-spells (not too many, considering I am a resto druid. Swiftmend, rebirth, Healing Touch-Nourish macro). Do you know if OmniCC works with Macaroon?

You actually CAN make it store button assignments on the server, just not bar layouts. If you set all the buttons to use ActionIDs instead of macros then the client will sync the button contents back to the server. The downside to this is that you're limited to 120 actionids, and you have to be careful about planning how the IDs get used or else you get overlap.I made a grid that I use for plotting out how I'm going to map the IDs that also shows how they appear on the default bars: http://chipersoft.com/ButtonMap.pdf (or http://chipersoft.com/buttonmap.php if you don't trust PDFs, but it only displays right in Safari or Chrome)
