An installable content type for WoW characters
The package is meant to be used with the Plone3 theme collective.wowlichking, but it is not required.
Best viewed with Mozilla Firefox.
It includes a custom contenttype (wowcharacter), a custom view (@@wowcharacter) and a custom portlet (realmstatus).
The contenttype represents a World of Warcraft character. When creating one, you need to state the Name and Realm of the character, also its faction (Horde/Alliance) and its zone (EU/US).
The view uses two APIs to communicate with the WoW-Armory to display additional information about the character, like class, guild, talent specs, professions, equip, recent activities etc. It also implements the wowhead-Tooltip for showing a WoW-ingame-like tooltip when hovering over the equip-icons.
The portlet uses an API to fetch the realmstatus-xml from wow-europe.com to display the status of the realm of the actual character. It also displays the name and the type of the realm.
