Suggestion Replace RS3Event and OSRSEvent enums with RSEvents class

  1. The OSRSEvent and RS3Event enums are the two most branched parts of our API and I really don't like that. I want to consolidate the OSRSEvent and RS3Event enums into a single RSEvents class. The downside to this is it would no longer be an enum, which means that getting instances of RSEvent to disable/enable would require you to pass in the event name. I can make it easier for you to get the event name by providing a mapping in the javadocs.

    Your code would probably change from
    Code (Text):
    2. if(Environment.isRS3()){
    3. RS3Event.LOBBY_HANDLER.disable();
    4. }else{
    5. OSRSEvent.LOBBY_HANDLER.disable();
    6. }
    To a single statement of
    Code (Text):
    2. RSEvents.get("Lobby Handler").disable();
    Any thoughts or suggestions on it?
  2. I don't see any problem with that :p
  3. The biggest problem that I could think of is that instead of having absolute enum values, you'd have to figure out the string for the event.
  4. you could have an enum thats just a list of the events and we just parse that?
  5. That's not doable though because OSRS and RS3 have very different events. If it was possible, I would have just done that from the beginning lol
  6. Well the only difference would be we'd be putting the enum value instead of a string. The enum would only be there to store the strings that we wouldn't otherwise know.
