oUF help

Can anyone guide me to a place where I can learn to create oUF layouts?

Thanks!

http://wiki.github.com/haste/oUF/

Although, this wiki is far from complete.
You should download a couple of layouts and tweak them instead.
Also, wowwiki/wowprogramming are two great sites with WoW API information.

I've looked at oUF Hypocrisy, Mightly, and coree. All are very different in their coding, as for as I can tell.

My goal is something like that ^^

I currently use Shadowed Unit Frames, which can edit the class colors as well. Does oUF allow class color changes with !ClassColors?

Shadowed Unit Frames has a lot of neat things (Aura whitelist) that I'm just not sure if oUF can do. I wanna try oUFing because of the low memory footprint, and smooth updates (<3).

oUF can do anything you can do with lua. You just need to know how to do it. You definitely need to learn at least some basic lua code if you want to create your own oUF layout.

A good base layout to look at is oUF_Lilly. You can use it to expand the code to your liking/needs.

I'll work with this and just try and make it look how I want. Thanks!

Looking on the github, the code seems extremely basic. Is that really all there is to creating health bars (for example)?

Yes, it is.
Do mind that it is just an example code, and it gives you the bare minimum.
