  • Bulk addon update without any limitations
  • Remove addons and their dependencies
  • Ignore addons you don't want to update
  • Supports both Retail, Classic, PTR and Beta versions of World of Warcraft

PRs Welcome

Ajour wouldn't be here without your help. I welcome contributions of any kind, because together we can make Ajour even better.


What features are planned?

We have a roadmap here.

macOS won't let me open the app, what should I do?

Instead of double clicking it, right click and choose "Open". That should successfully open Ajour.

What requirements does Ajour have?

Windows: DX12 or Vulkan Linux: Vulkan macOS: Metal

If you are having problems with these requirements, then try the OpenGL build.

Where does Ajour store its configuration?

Ajour will generate a folder in the following directory:

macOS / Linux:

  • $HOME/.config/ajour


  • %APPDATA%\ajour

Inside this folder Ajour will keep a configuration file for storing different user settings, a log file with events from the last session, a fingerprint file with hashed fingerprints for each addon and a theme folder with custom themes.

Why Rust?

We wanted to create an application which natively compiles to both Windows, Linux and macOS while at the same time is as performant and reliable as possible.

Other addon managers

If Ajour isn't your cup of tea, then Ogri'la has done a great job of cataloguing addon managers.
