Module: Textformatter Nomalize UTF8

Recommended Posts

∞Textformatter Normalize UTF8 uses a lightweight PHP class (Patchwork UTF-8) for UTF8 normalization.
 
Use it if ..

  • If you check the page with the W3C HTML5 validator, you'll maybe get the following warning:
Text run is not in Unicode Normalization Form C.
  • Or if you notice strange output in some browsers (bold letters, shifted characters, ..).

What it does

In Unicode it is possible to produce the same text with different sequences of characters. For example, take the Hungarian word világ. The fourth letter could be stored in memory as a precomposed U+00E1 LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH ACUTE (a single character) or as a decomposed sequence of U+0061 LATIN SMALL LETTER A followed by U+0301 COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT (two characters).

világ = világ

The Unicode Standard allows either of these alternatives, but requires that both be treated as identical. To improve efficiency, an application will usually normalize text before performing searches or comparisons. Normalization, in this case, means converting the text to use all precomposed or all decomposed characters.

There are four normalization forms specified by the Unicode Standard: NFC, NFD, NFKC and NFKD. The C stands for (pre-)composed, and the D for decomposed. The K stands for compatibility. To improve interoperability, the W3C recommends the use of NFC normalized text on the Web.

      This is a new module, hope to release soon, which allows extended field descriptions, in currently 2 ways.
      The main feature of the module is that you can have a short description and then a 'more...' link which drops down a longer block of text.
      This is achieved by separating the intro/visible text and the rest with 5 dashes.

      Example setup:

      the 2nd way is if you are using AdminThemeUiKit, you can show extended field instructions in a panel. The content of the panel is edited on a regular PW page. This use case would probably not be that common, but if you had a field that required some extended instructions for how to use, this could be useful; Also, since this allows you to target information and instructions down at the field level, it could reduce the amount of documentation needed on a global level, since it is a lot more context targeted.

      Part 1 of a 2 part Module & Service Reveal.
      I'm currently working on a new module: ModuleReleaseNotes that was inspired by the work I originally did on making Ryan's ProcessWireUpgrades module "release" aware. In the end, I decided to ditch the approach I was originally taking and instead work on a module that hooked in to the UpgradeConfirmation dialog and the module edit page.
      Aims
      My aims for this module are as follows...
      Make discovery of a module's changes prior to an upgrade a trivial task. Make breaking changes very obvious. Make reading of a module's support documentation post-install a trivial task. Make module authors start to think about how they can improve the change discovery process for their modules. Make sure the display of information from the module support files/commit messages doesn't introduce a vulnerability. Looking at these in turn...
      Making discovery of a module's changes prior to upgrade a trivial task.
      This is done by adding a "What's changed section" to the upgrade confirmation dialog.  This section takes a best-effort approach to showing what's changed between the installed version and the updated version that's available via the module repository.
      At present, it is only able to talk to github-hosted repositories in order to ask them for the release notes, the changelog file (if present) and a list of commits between the git tag that matches the installed version and the tag matching the latest version.
      It will display the Release Notes (if the author is using the feature), else it will display the commits between the tags (if tagging is used by the module author) else it will show the changelog file (if present) else it will show the latest N commits on the master branch (N, of course, being configurable to your liking.)
      An example of the Github Release Notes pulled in for you, taken from Mike Rockett's TextformatterTypographer Module...

      An example of a tag-to-tag commit list from the same module...

      An example of a changelog - formatted to show just the changes (formatting styles will change)...

      Finally, an example of a fallback list of commits - sorry Adrian ...

       
      Making breaking changes obvious.
      This is currently done by searching for a set of configurable search strings. Later versions may be able to support breaking change detection via use of Semantic Versioning - but this may require some way of signalling the use of this versioning standard on a module-by-module basis.
      For now, then, you can customise the default set of change markers. Here I have added my own alias to the list of breaking change markers and the changes section of the changelog is styled accordingly (these will be improved)...

       
      Make reading of a module's support documentation, post-install, a trivial task.
      This is done by making some of the support files (like the README, CHANGELOG and LICENSE files) readable from the module's information/settings screen. There is an option to control the initial open/closed state of this section...

      Here is Tracy's README file from within the module settings page... 

       
      Make module authors start to think about how they can improve the change discovery process for their modules.
      There are notes in each of the sections displayed on the upgrade confirmation page that help authors use each of the features...

       
      Make sure display of external information doesn't introduce a vulnerability.
      This is an ongoing concern, and is the thing that is most likely to delay or prevent this module's release. Currently, output is formatted either via Markdown + HTML Purifier (if it was originally a Markdown file) or via htmlspecialchars() if it has come from a plaintext file.
       
      Ongoing...
      For now, I've concentrated on integration with GitHub, as most people use that platform to host their code. I know a few people are hosting their repositories with BitBucket (PWFoo comes to mind) and some with GitLab (Mike Rockett?) and I would eventually like to have adaptor implementations for these providers (and perhaps GitKraken) - but for now, GitHub rules and the other hosts are unsupported.
      I hope to have this ready for general release within the next week.

      Hej,
      A module which helps including Photoswipe and brings some modules for rendering gallery markup. Feedback highly appreciated

      Modules directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/markup-processwire-photoswipe
      .zip download: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe/archive/master.zip
      You can add a photoswipe enabled thumbnail gallery / lightbox to your site like this. Just pass an image field to the renderGallery method:
      <?php $pwpswp = $modules->get('Pwpswp'); echo $pwpswp->renderGallery($page->nicePictures); Options are provided like so:
      <?php $galleryOptions = [ 'imageResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 70, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'loresResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 20, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'pswpOptions' => (object) [ 'shareEl' => false, 'indexIndicatorSep' => ' von ', 'closeOnScroll' => false ] ]; echo $pswp->renderGallery($page->images, $galleryOptions); More info about all that is in the readme: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe
      What do you think? Any ideas, bugs, critique, requests?
      cheers

      Tasker is a module to handle and execute long-running jobs in Processwire. It provides a simple API  to create tasks (stored as PW pages), to set and query their state (Active, Waiting, Suspended etc.), and to execute them via Cron, LazyCron or HTTP calls.
      Creating a task
      $task = wire('modules')->Tasker->createTask($class, $method, $page, 'Task title', $arguments); where $class and $method specify the function that performs the job, $page is the task's parent page and $arguments provide optional configuration for the task.
      Executing a task
      You need to activate a task first
      wire('modules')->Tasker->activateTask($task); then Tasker will automatically execute it using one of its schedulers: Unix cron, LazyCron or TaskerAdmin's REST API + JS client.
      Getting the job done
      Your method that performs the task looks like
      public function longTask($page, &$taskData, $params) { ... } where $taskData is a persistent storage and $params are run-time options for the task.
      Monitoring progress, management
      The TaskerAdmin module provides a Javascript-based front-end to list tasks, to change their state and to monitor their progress (using a JQuery progressbar and a debug log area). It also allows the on-line execution of tasks using periodic HTTP calls performed by Javascript.

       
      Monitoring task progress (and log messages if debug mode is active)

       
      Task data and log

      Detailed info (setup, task dependencies, time limits, REST API etc.) and examples can be found on GitHub.
      This is my first public PW module. I'm sure it needs improvement

      A very simple textformatter that was inspired by Diogo's RemoveHeight textformatter.
      This one strips the height from any images and either adds a custom class or adds a max-width:100% as an embedded style.
