nUI is a user interface replacement for World of Warcraft. It is 100% standalone code designed to feel like Bliz meant the UI to look this way. nUI removes a ton of clutter from the display, provides detailed targeting information, an integrated HUD, cooldowns and more all in one tightly integrated single-source addon that requires no user configuration. This is *not* an addon pack. It is a single, custom, hand-coded addon.

nUI is not a compilation of addons, it is one single mod that provides all of the functionality required to replace the Blizzard default UI. It is small, fast and efficient, easy to install, easy to use and come patch day you only have to worry about updating one mod.

nUI is no longer directly supported by the original author and is placed in the public domain under a non-commercial creative commons license. I encourage other players and programmers to pick up the mantle and take nUI forward from here. It's been a great ride, and I've met a lot of amazing people along the way, but it's time to move on.
