bdNameplate are a lightweight replacement to the default nameplates. It adds a couple of great features to the new nameplates introduced in legion. But mostly it makes them not look like crap.
Threat coloring (red for aggro, orange for danger, green for not)
Better target indication (higher alpha/white text)
Quick reskin to personal resource display
Custom aura tracking (in addition to default stuns/spells tracked by blizzard)
Friendly player name display with raid-relevant debuffs (customizable)
/bd config to access in game config
If you check "Friendly Names in Raid", the addon will change a cVar that will hide all default nameplates so that these names show up. If you uninstall bdNameplates, be sure to uncheck that box or run this command:
/script SetCVar('nameplateShowOnlyNames', 0)
To Do List
Finding a way to let nameplates be clickable on mouse down instead of up.
Shoutout to Zork for making this way better with oUF implementation
