Swinger provides a customisable attack timer.
What does it do? Swinger watches when you attack, and provides a visual countdown to your next melee swing, autoshot or wand attack. This lets you to see exactly how long until your next autoattack, allowing you to plan accordingly.
Why write this addon? There've been a few addons of this type, but I've not really found one that works properly since 2.0 came out, and I usually end up hacking changes into the code to customise the display how I like it anyway. So, I wrote my own. I find having an autoattack bar indispensable when using a slow weapon, as it keeps me informed about when I'll be recieving my next chunk of rage, and gives me something to look at while I wait ;) Swinger is also a lot more intelligent than other autoattack bars; it takes into account changes in attack speed from haste effects as well as parries to ensure that your next swing always arrives when you expect it.
How do I use it? Swinger is completely customisable using the /swinger command; the config pane will also appear when you first install the addon. Drag the bar into place, lock it, and swing away!
Slash Commands: /swinger - brings up the Swinger config pane.
Swinger watches autoattacks as well as Heroic Strike, Cleave, Slam, Raptor Strike and Maul. These last two I noticed in a previous attack bar I used; if there are any other on-next-attack abilities out there, let me know, and I'll add them.
