Default getting started with FuBar

I'm getting ready to write my first addon, and I want it to be a Fubar addon, but I can't find a FuBar dev kit. Can someone either point me to the dev kit, a tutorial, or a barebones example for FuBar? I'll even gladdly take someone pointing me to the obvious like to the dev tools I must've missed in my 2 day search.

Thanks in advance

Default Re: getting started with FuBar

FuBar is outdated and largely unsupported. It's also clumsy and limits your plugin to a single method of display. It is strongly recommended that you do not write new plugins using the FuBar API. Instead, you should write your plugin using the lightweight and flexible DataBroker API. Not only is it easier to write a plugin for, but it also lets users use any display addon they want. You can even use FuBar to display DataBroker plugins (in conjunction with Broker2FuBar).

Tekkub has helpfully written API documentation and a "How to" tutorial for creating DataBroker plugins. You can find more information in the Data Broker AddOns sub-forum here on WoWAce.
