Module: RuntimeMarkup Fieldtype & Inputfield

Recommended Posts

i have one type of button that submits via ajax so does all of the processing without opening a new window; some of my more primitive versions just open a new window to run the action...

yeah, i also went with ajax for now. but it's strange that it worked before... and it seems more complicated now than necessary and with pw that's usually the feeling when something is wrong :)

so what changed since your example here? and how could i detect clicks on buttons?

 

Nothing has changed. It works just fine. If you use $input->post in your 'my-file.php', it will work as expected. If used directly in 'Copy Paste' code, it won't.

For buttons, that would have to be JS from what I see. E.g., dump this after if($copy) {} in my example in the quoted post:

echo '<pre>';
print_r($input->post);
echo '</pre>';
exit;

You will see all the POST values (but no 'submit_save' there; I guess the post is submitted in some other way) including the 'Create Copy' button, body fields, etc. So, to detect submit button, you could do the following in your 'my-file.php':

if($input->post->title) {
// blah blah
}

Hi Kongondo

Thanks for this great module! I use it on several templates and in the frontend everything works fine. I use it mainly to concatenate text… Now i have a firstname and lastname field on the user that i combine into a single runtimemarkup field "fullname" – it displays correctly in the frontend but the backend profile page does not display the computed value: return $page->firstname." ".$page->lastname;

Any ideas on why that could happen?

@noelboss - have you tried using TracyDebugger yet? You could get that going and then troubleshoot the contents of the $page in the profile editor; you may also be able to see warnings and errors when using Tracy. Using it is pretty much required if you are doing any serious dev work in the backend.

Welcome to the forums. Glad you find the module useful.

Regarding your question, it's hard to tell without seeing some code. Are you using the field directly in the ProcessWire user template or you have some other pseudo page for users?

I'm guessing he is talking about the profile edit interface (ProcessProfile). There are a couple of places where the module assumes/requires ProcessPageEdit.

Hi all. 

I am intending to ONLY support ProcessWire 3.x starting from the next version of this module. Please have a read here and let me know what you think. Thanks.

Is it possible to use field collapsed status with this - since the module itself doesn't have a value that can trigger 'populated' status (?)... I'm using a lot of these on a page , but need keep them all open...

Aren't they all staying open?

oops, mis-typed, i meant keep closed when blank; they do stay open if set to open.

I guess maybe i need to make sure my code returns empty for this to work; will check again.

Can't believe I discovered this awesome module only recently... I mean, it's over 2 years old now already :o

Here's another use-case:

I'm getting a strange glitch with this.  I'm on PW 3.0.9.  If I put my code directly into the field it works fine, but if I try to use an external file using return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('runtime.php');  the page is always returned as page id 10, not the the page I'm on.   

Not tragic as I can put the code directly in the field but would be better to have it external if possible.

Thanks!

That's because the code (in the field) is locally scoped so that $page refers to the page you are editing. However, if using wireRenderFile(), you need to get the page being edited yourself. When editing a page, the page (named) edit is what ProcessWire assigns to $page. The page edit has the id 10. So, what you need is code like below to get the page being edited:

$currentPage = '';
$process = wire('process'); 
if($process && $process->className() == 'ProcessPageEdit') $currentPage = $process->getPage();
if(!$currentPage) return;
// if you get here $currentPage is the page being edited

More in this post. Sorry, this should be in the docs. I will update the docs at some point (when I get the time).

Hope this helps.

Is it possible to use this field on a custom user template ? 

I'm trying but if I just put "return $page->id" in the field I have an error  "Undefined variable: page" ...
If I try with a external file, I have $page but It's the "users" parent page and not the user I'm editing 

:(

I haven't tried, sorry. I'll check when I get a bit of time. I've never used the custom user template feature so will have to do a bit of reading first. Have you tried with wire('page')? This post might also be handy (i.e. establishing process context)

Hey @kongondo - would you consider adding this to the module please?

$f = $this->modules->isInstalled('InputfieldAceExtended') ? $this->modules->get('InputfieldAceExtended') : $this->modules->get('InputfieldTextarea');

in the ___getConfigInputfields method?

Thanks!

It would also be good to have:

$f->rows = 20;

or even make it configurable.

One other thing - because InputfieldAceExtended is not in inline mode, you need <?php to force code highlighting, but your module doesn't allow this. Would you mind stripping out any <?php that is added so that this works? This should do it:

$str = eval(str_replace('<?php', '', $this->runtimeFields));
$str = eval(str_replace('<?php', '', $field->runtimeFields));

One each for FieldtypeRuntimMarkup and InputfieldRuntimeMarkup.

Thanks!

But still I think using your IDE is the best option for larger code snippets... No need for ACE then. I'm still unsing my render replacement hook

I still think it's nice to have even for short snippets, but maybe that's just me? If nothing else it lets you actually use the tab key to indent which you can't do in a normal textarea.

Sure it's nice :) I think this was lost in translation :) I meant if you are using the IDE you don't need ACE, but of course it's nice to have it in the backend. The Tracy Console is a perfect example. I'm using ACE myself in several projects

Sorry @kongondo - me again :)

I am noticing that the renderMarkup() method is called many times on the currently edited page and it's also called on page reference fields on the page being edited. This makes for a lot of calls to this method that don't seem necessary as far as I can tell. Do you think this can be improved?

As an example, I put: bd($page->id); at the top of that method and saw this:

image.thumb.png.37bb806099db03174abb5d1ffeea5e9a.png

I am currently editing page 1100, but there are a few page reference fields which are also showing up in that list.

Thanks for taking a look!

Thanks @adrian. I'll look at these when I upgrade the module to PW3.x-support only. I have no ETA though, I'm afraid.

Hey @kongondo - seems like it's all because of the ___wakeupValue and ___sleepValue methods. Is there any reason they can't just return true, rather than returning $this->renderMarkup($page, $field); ?

Thanks!

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy!
