I'm wondering how do you check if a blue spell is currently set in gearswap.

Essentially I want to do something like this:

if Magic Fruit is set:
send_command('bind ^numpad4 input /ma "Magic Fruit" <st>')

elseif Restoral is set:
send_command('bind ^numpad4 input /ma "Restoral" <me>')

elseif White wind is set:
send_command('bind ^numpad4 input /ma "White Wind" <me>')

else
send_command('bind ^numpad4 input /ma "Cure IV" <st>')

etc..

How can you check if certain spells are available?

AzureSets has some code that does this, so we could likely tweak and reuse:
Quote:
function get_current_spellset()
--if not a BLU main, quit
if windower.ffxi.get_player().main_job_id ~= 16 then return nil end

--get set spells
return T(windower.ffxi.get_mjob_data().spells)

-- Returns all values but 512
:filter(function(id) return id ~= 512 end)

-- Transforms spells from IDs to lowercase English names
:map(function(id) return spells[id].english:lower() end)

-- Transform the keys from numeric x or xx to string 'slot0x' or 'slotxx'
:key_map(function(slot) return 'slot%02u':format(slot) end)
end

Looks like you want to use windower.ffxi.get_mjob_data().spells:
Quote:
windower.ffxi.get_mjob_data()

Returns a table containing main job info. May be empty if no job data is provided. Currently provides:

PUP (attachments and Automaton stats)
BLU (which spells are set)
MON (species and instincts)

That'll return a full table that you'll have to loop over to check for either the hardcoded IDs or reuse the call to spells[id].english:lower() to return things like "magic fruit" and "white wind".

I didn't write the actual code here, so uh, let me know if that's not clear.

I only have a very basic understanding of how to put these together.
Would it be something close to this?

windower.ffxi.get_mjob_data().spells:
if spells[id].english:lower("Magic Fruit") then
send_command('bind ^numpad6 input /ma "Magic Fruit" <st>')
end

this one gives me an error when testing it

Have this near the beginning of your file...it doesn't need to fire multiple times unless you're changing sets frequently (could just run //gs reload after you do swap spells to update).
Code
local spells = require('resources').spells
blu_spells = S{}
for i,v in ipairs(windower.ffxi.get_mjob_data().spells) do
     blu_spells = blu_spells + spells[v].english:lower()
end


Now you can check if a spell is set using (make sure to check using lower case):
Code
if blu_spells:contains('magic fruit') then
...
end


I can't check right now but think all the code syntax is right.

It seems gives an error saying it can't find "res.lua"

Tried changing the code to 'resources' and it stopped the error, but doesn't apply the key bind.

Would need to see the lua to see why you are having an error.
