Lightbulb Help with Addon creation

Good Morning,

I want to create an addon for ESO that is similar to the adventure guide in wow. A library that lists all the dungeons and trials and gives main mechanics for normal and vet.

My thought would be that you open it via an icon on your screen or keyboard shortcut, you get a menu that lets you select dungeon or trial and lists them alphabetically. You can then click the dungeon and it shows you the map and description.

I am perfectly fine gathering all the content etc., but unfortunately I have very little LUA knowledge and don't know how to code the menu.

Any coders around that would be willing to help me?

Isn't that already there or is your idea different from that?
ESO-Database.com | Character- and Guild Database [EN/DE] (System Status)
ESO-Skillfactory.com | ESO Build planer [EN/DE/FR]
ESO-LFG.com | The ESO Looking for Group Tool [EN/DE/FR]
ESO-Database Game Data API | API for AddOn developers to fetch game related data like Chest positions etc.

Ah, I did not realize this existed. A little wordy for my liking, but this will do. Thank you!

Addon creation:


Hope this helps to get started with lua and addons.
Creating the UI is XML, and it can get annoying yeah...
You'd need to check teh Wiki for tutorials about the XML parts, and especially about the "anchors" -< Controls will anchor to each other.
You kind of draw the UI by adding the controls to each other.
ZOs provides some templates (virtual controls) you can reuse.
Like Lists or backgrouns or frames.
