AppApi-Module that adds a file endpoint
AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api.
Relies on AppApi:
AppApiFile relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
AppApi and AppApiFile can be installed like every other module in ProcessWire. Check the following guide for detailed information: How-To Install or Uninstall Modules
The prerequisites are PHP>=7.2.0 and a ProcessWire version >=3.93.0 (+ AppApi>=1.2.0). However, this is also checked during the installation of the module. No further dependencies.
You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call
/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call /file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
|width||int >= 0||Width of the requested image|
|height||int >= 0||Height of the requested image|
|maxWidth||int >= 0||Maximum Width, if the original image's resolution is sufficient|
|maxHeight||int >= 0||Maximum Height, if the original image's resolution is sufficient|
|cropX||int >= 0||Start-X-position for cropping (crop enabled, if width, height, cropX & cropY set)|
|cropY||int >= 0||Start-Y-position for cropping (crop enabled, if width, height, cropX & cropY set)|
format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.
Pro tip: If you want to include an image from the api using the standard
<img src=""> tag, it can be very difficult to include the api key and a token as headers. However, it is possible to include these values as GET parameters. The GET parameter with the apikey is called
api_key. A token can be sent as parameter
Disclaimer: I recommend to use this solution only for this exceptional case. Generally headers are the better and more elegant solution.
