    LUA is pretty straight forward, easily human readable. Spend a bit of time reading about it, it's syntax, then start opening up addons and seeing what they do. Copy and paste something from one addon to another and make it work. Then set a simple development goal- for example adding a colored bar here or changing a font there, then accomplish that goal. Then set another. This is a fairly generic process that can be applied to any language really... at least for me.

    Good luck!

    From a zero coding background and not even knowing what LUA means, I read no guides or resources, I simply downloaded an addon, played around with it and mastered its configuration settings then did the same thing for the next one, then the next one. Theres no secret, its just practice practice practice!

    Major respect for the guys who design their own addons and code the UIs at a ground level though!

    Hey, great UI! What addons did you use for bags and tooltip?

    Edit : Like Cathfaern, I checked the link in your signature, could you explain me how to copy some of the elements we can find there, where to past them etc, for exemple bags and tooltip. Thank you!

    What addon do you use for the unit frames and for the minimap? They look fantastic.

    Edit: nevermind, I checked the link in your signature.

    I will post everything once I am finished.

    Can any of you UI guru's help with my chat spacing in the bottom left? I want a bigger vertical gap between each line but literally have no idea what I am doing.

    I use pixel fonts cos I play on a 15inch laptop in 1080p O_O.

    I think PhanxChat can help you adjust the chat line spacing. Phanx added that feature a version or two ago.

    This is my current UI. Based on Frantik's work. Needs a few tweaks still like the Mythic+ Timer and short buffs need Weakauras sorting but this should give y'all an idea.

    Wow! Duke, you're still active here?! How have you been? Also, sorry for butchering your interface like 10 years ago :P I was a young foolish tinkerer.

    Latest iteration of my Material UI, slightly tweaked. I know it looks quite busy, but thats the way I like it!

    It is Gotta Go Fast, a mythic+ timer. It doesn't track quests, unfortunately.
