Module: RuntimeMarkup Fieldtype & Inputfield

Recommended Posts

@Juergen I have used this module with ProcessWire's translation capabilities with no problems!

And actually, forgot to mention that on my previous post. Once upon a time, a client wanted to control the contrast of their b&w converted image, so with the help of @horst 's PIM 2 module and RuntimeMarkup I was able to quickly setup a "thumb preview and edit" button. All buttons and text were in spanish and english.

Is there a reason ProcessWire would be stripping a <form> html element when embedding code through this module?

i guess the browser strips your form because it is inside the processwire form that contains all the inputfields and a form inside another form is not valid html. the inspector shows you the code after browser and javascript manipulations. if you view the raw sourcecode you maybe see your form element.

hi @kongondo

what do you think of adding a feature that the field loads files with the same filename automatically when they exist?

for example a field "runtime_demo" would load /somefolder/runtime_demo.php and /somefolder/runtime_demo.js

i do it manually right now. for sure no problem but i think that would help to keep everything clear if you are using custom markup a lot :)

 

edit: is there a reason why my file is loaded 3 times when using wirerenderfile? if i only put

bd('test!');

into the file, then i see it 3 times in the tracy log. i setup a datatable with my module and loaded the code in the runtime markup field. i had my columns 3 times. i fixed it with an if-statement, but still i would be interested why the file is called 3 times...

Hi @bernhard,

I'll have a think. If you have the time, could you please add this as a feature request in the project page? Thanks.

Hi @kongondo

Very Nice Module you have created here! I have a question, would it be possible to use this module inside the Formbuilder somehow. Is it even supported by the Formbuilder?

Glad the module is of use to you. Unfortunately, I have never had the need to use Formbuilder. Maybe you could try and let us know? Thanks.

would you mind adding my suggested features to your module?

sorry for not making a PR, but you can just replace your render method with this one:

    /**
     * Render the entire markup returned from FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup
     *
     */
    public function ___render() {

        //so that $page and $pages are locally scoped to the eval
        $process = $this->wire('process'); 
        if($process && $process->className() == 'ProcessPageEdit') $page = $process->getPage();

        $pages = $this->wire('pages');

        // render files that are related to this field
        $root = rtrim($this->wire->config->paths->root,'/');
        $file = '/site/modules/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup/fields/' . $this->name;
        if(is_file($root.$file.'.php')) {
            // we found a file in the modules /fields folder, so render it
            $str = wireRenderFile($root.$file);
        }
        else {
            // no early reaturn because we load assets later
            if(!$this->runtimeFields) $str = '';
            else $str = eval($this->runtimeFields);
        }

        // load assets related to this field
        if(is_file($root.$file.'.js')) $this->wire->config->scripts->add($file.'.js');
        if(is_file($root.$file.'.css')) $this->wire->config->styles->add($file.'.css');

        //since we are dealing with custom PHP code but also want to make sure that only markup is returned
        //if eval() returns anything other than a string or an integer, we throw an error (e.g. if an object or array is returned)
        if (is_string($str) || is_int($str)) return $str;
        else return $this->error($this->_('Only strings and integers should be returned by your custom code! Check if your code is valid.'));
    }

this will render all files inside the folder

/site/modules/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup/
- your_field_name.php | .css | .js

I had tried and it looks like it's not supported. There is no Detail Tab / Textarea or something where you can add the PHP Code. I came up with a workaround using InputfieldMarkup and Hanna Code Tags. But still, thank you for your Support @kongondo.

hi @kongondo 

did you think about my suggested new render method?

another thing that would be good imho is to mention in the docs / in the first posting that you can do this

return ProcessWire\wireRenderFile('fields/myfieldsphpfile.php', ['page' => $page]);

To have the currently edited page available in your file. It's very basic, but might help some beginners.

I would also suggest to update my render-method passing the $page and $pages variables to the renderfile:

// change this
$str = wireRenderFile($root.$file);

// to that
$str = wireRenderFile($root.$file, [
  'page' => $page,
  'pages' => $pages,
]);

what do you think?

Update: Runtime Markup Version 0.0.3.

Changelog

  1. Added support to render PHP, JavaScript and CSS files Thanks to @bernhard for the ideas.

Please note:

  • Please read the notes that accompany the field settings.
  • For PHP, you can choose to render files (recommended) vs paste code.
  • JavaScript and CSS work with either PHP rendering method (above). These are optional to use.
  • For each of the 3 file types above, if you only have one file and this is named identical to your field, you can select an option to have those rendered/added. For example, if you have a RuntimeMarkup field called 'my_field', you can have a 'my_field.php', 'my_field.js' and 'my_field.css' automatically rendered/added.
  • However, if you want to render multiple files and/or these are named differently, select the option that indicates the files have different names. In that case, enter comma-separated file names. For example, for CSS: my_css, styles/my-other-css-file. Using this option, you can include external JavaScript libraries for use on your page if you fancied it.
  • The above can be mixed and matched, e.g. PHP file could have name identical to field but JavaScript are multiple files with different names and CSS multiple file names, one of which could share a name with your field.
  • All files must descend from either of the root paths /site/templates/ or /site/modules/. It is OK for files to be in sub-folders, as long as those descend from one of these root paths. There is a setting to indicate root path. Only one root path can be used at a time, i.e. it applies to all file types.
  • .php, .js and .css extensions are assumed and do not need to be specified with the file names. PHP files such as .inc will need to be input as such, e.g. my_code.inc,includes/my-more-code.tpl.
  • Errors will be shown if files not found.
  • In your rendered PHP file, you have access to $page and $pages. This means you do not need to get the page being edited first to use it as the current page.
  • For frontend, only pasted PHP code option is supported. My take is that this module is primarily used for the backend. Use of the render files option is geared for creating complex and/or more flexible backend apps as opposed to frontend usage. I have no intention of changing this behaviour.

Currently available on dev branch only. Please test and let me know (with Listers, etc as well, thanks).

hi @kongondo 

I just tried the dev version and have 2 questions:

  • what is the reason for specifying the root path as /templates or /modules ? Why not a folder inside the RuntimeMarkup's module folder? like /FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup/fields ? Ok, i can specify an alternate filename, but imho that is an unnecessary step and it would be preferable to have this at least as an option. I try to keep the templates' and modules' root folders as clean as possible... edit: of course that would not be a good idea because module updates would wipe all code files in this folder!
  • Second thing that i find more annoying than helping is the js and css file include warnings / settings. Why do i have to select if there is a js/css file present? Why does it not include a js/css file automatically if one is present. Imagine you are working on a runtime field and want to do some minor css changes. you are in your IDE and you would just have to create a new css file with the name of your field. But as it is now, i would also have to change the field's settings. Thats some more extra clicks that i don't understand why they are necessary if my proposed render method did not have this drawbacks.

maybe there is a reason for that and i would be happy to hear it :)

thanks for bringing my ideas into your module though!

Added security...similar to wireRenderFile().

Yes you can specify a filename :). FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup/fields/my-file.

OK. I'll add that as a third option (or as the first option).

 

7 hours ago, bernhard said:

Sure. But some people may prefer to create include folders in /site/templates/ and /site/modules/ that are shared across the site. Adding a third option above should cater for both worlds.

We can't assume everyone will want to include a JS/CSS file :).

 

7 hours ago, bernhard said:

I don't like automating things TBH. I prefer for users to expressly declare a choice.

OK. Imagine you are working on a runtime field and want to do some 'minor' JS changes. You are in your IDE and you would just have to create a new js file with the name of your field. But then you have to leave or you forgot to fully test your changes with other Inputfields present on the page and you lock up the whole page edit (yes, that's what JS will do...) ;).  Or...you or a colleague renamed your field and forgot to rename your files..:P.

Please see above point. IMO, this is a minor inconvenience compared to the damage automation could cause. OK, maybe I exaggerate but I am not convinced automation is the best approach in this particular case. The field settings are just a click away. Yes, I could include an option to suppress errors but that's no good either. Errors need to be seen so that they can be rectified.

thanks for your reply!

I think your answers are totally out of context some times. For example specifying a root path is not added security compared to my suggestion of having a fields folder inside the runtime markup module. but this point will be fixed when we have another option, so thank you for taking that into account :)

Regarding the automatic include of js+css files: I really disagree about that. Your point about breaking the edit screen has nothing to do with the way the file is included! I would also break the edit screen when i include a broken JS file that is specified in the field's settings. IMHO braking up all into 3 config fields adds the possibility of errors because you can easily have typos etc.

if you have your root path for the field (wherever it is, i understand your point about modules and templates) and you have a my_field.php file there. its much more secure and error-unlikely to just put a new file in the same folder (having it grouped in the filetree because of the same filename beginnings) and have that load automatically when present. i don't think that the error message is necessary or helpful for the USER of the field, because if something does not work as expected, you can easily do an alert('working') or the like. I think those error messages only help you as a DEV of the module for finding bugs while writing all the include paths etc.

OK... given that you set your field to include a file in a custom directory it may help to get an error (for example to find typos)... i just didn't think of that too much because i only had one folder and that was really fool-proof to place a file there.

considering the fact that this could be helpful sometimes and that imho it is NOT more unsecure to include the js+css automatically if present i would really like to see that as a third option too :) 

thank you for your time - please don't be mad about me picking on so little things... that's just the proof that i'm using your module a lot those days ;)

Yes, you are right. Regarding security, I was responding to the issue about root paths in general, but now I realise what you were really after is having the field's folder as a default. Anyway, this is resolved with having the third option I mentioned.

Yes, the error messages are for the dev. Maybe I misunderstand; did you have a suggestion regarding error messages?

You already have this option :). OK, two options, one each for JS and CSS. So, rather than having one option "JavaScript and CSS included automatically", we have split that into two for JS and CSS respectively. The second options under JS and CSS "JavaScript/CSS file has identical name to this field".  That will do what you are after, but with the errors of course, if there is no file present. I think that's a good reminder about missing files. Maybe we can add an option to suppress errors about missing files (..a leave me alone I know what am doing option >:( :lol:.). That and the identical file name options should get you your wish (of coming back later to add JS/CSS). What do you think?

On the contrary! I value your honest and helpful feedback! ^-^:).

Tools: RM; Countable JS and circleChart

Approach: Include one main.php , JS and CSS using RM render file option. main.php conditionally requires_once 'some-php-file.php' depending on the page being edited.

yes, that's what i want :) i try to explain what i was talking about in the last 2 postings:

imagine you are working on a project with some runtime markup fields... it starts with easy markup, some html. you create your field, set the option to render a field in a specified folder and you're fine. lets say we store it in RM/fields/myfield.php; so far so good.

imagine you continue working on your project... your project grows and your field needs some more styling. we need some easy CSS rules for that field. so what to do?

option now:

  • leave your IDE
  • open just another browser tab
  • go to the backend
  • search the field
  • go to the settings
  • put in the path of the CSS
  • create your css file (RM/fields/myfield.css)
  • put in your rules

my way how i did it with my render method for several fields:

  • create your css file (we have a myfield.php, so create a myfield.css in the same folder)
  • put in your rules

that's A LOT easier and fool-proof imho.

the problem with your "we have that option of including files with the same name already" is that it throws an error when the file is not present. imho that harms more than it helps, because the problem is that you can NOT choose this option while setting up the field at the moment, because it would always show the error as long as you don't have (don't need) a css/js file.

i would really really vote for one global option:

Quote

load PHP + CSS + JS files with the same name as the field that are inside the folder /RM/fields/ automatically

this setting could hide all other inputfields, you would not have to change any of your options and have a solution for everybody.

hope that makes my point more clear now :)

Update: Runtime Markup Version 0.0.4.

Changelog

  1. Enhancements to render/add file feature
  2. Added option to suppress errors if JavaScript and CSS files not found (respectively)
  3. Add /site/modules/this-modules-folder/ as a third option in Files Root Path

Currently available on dev branch only.

@bernhard. Using the combinations of JS/CSS has identical name to this field + their respective 'Suppress Missing JS/CSS Files Errors' should cover the need you've described above (i.e., set up your field once and load PHP + CSS + JS files with the same name as the field that are inside the folder /RM/*). That's as automatic as this is going to get ;).

Hi kongondo,

I'm sorry that I have to say that, but I still don't like the solution. It took me some time to understand all the settings, read the instructions carefully, paste in some file paths, ended up with some errors (I pasted the old paths with different root from the autofill for this field)...

I ended up putting this replace hook in my site/ready.php - i guess this will save me, and you, and maybe some others some time...

/**
 * replacement for the original runtimemarkup render method
 */
$wire->addHookBefore('InputfieldRuntimeMarkup::render', function($event) {
  $event->replace = true;
  $field = $event->object;
  
  //so that $page and $pages are locally scoped to the eval
  $process = $this->wire('process'); 
  if($process && $process->className() == 'ProcessPageEdit') $page = $process->getPage();

  $pages = $this->wire('pages');

  // render files that are related to this field
  $root = rtrim($this->wire->config->paths->root,'/');
  $path = '/site/modules/FieldtypeRuntimeMarkup/fields/';
  $file = $root.$path.$field->name;
  if(is_file($file.'.php')) {
    // we found a file in the modules /fields folder, so render it
    $str = wireRenderFile($file, [
      'page' => $page,
      'pages' => $pages,
    ]);
  }
  else {
    // no early reaturn because we load assets later
    if(!$this->runtimeFields) $str = '';
    else $str = eval($this->runtimeFields);
  }

  // load assets related to this field
  if(is_file($file.'.js')) $this->wire->config->scripts->add($path . $field->name . '.js');
  if(is_file($file.'.css')) $this->wire->config->styles->add($path . $field->name . '.css');

  //since we are dealing with custom PHP code but also want to make sure that only markup is returned
  //if eval() returns anything other than a string or an integer, we throw an error (e.g. if an object or array is returned)
  $event->return = "Place your files here: $path<a>{$field->name}.php|css|js</a>";
  if (is_string($str) || is_int($str)) $event->return = $str;
  else $this->error($this->_('Only strings and integers should be returned by your custom code! Check if your code is valid.'));
});

 

With that method the setup is as simple as it can get. no clicking around, no pasting in wrong filenames, no error messages if there is no file...

  • create a new field
  • place it in your template
  • place your files to /fields/myfield.php|css|js

----

another question that cost me quite some time already :(

do you have any idea why this simple code does not work?

if($input->post->submit_save) echo 'saved!';
else echo 'not saved';

using tracy i see that $input->post has no data while $input->get has the url params...

also your example from here does not work any more: 

help would be highly appreciated :)

Maybe our wires are getting crossed somewhere :). I thought the current solution meets both your and other people's/scenarios' needs.

2 hours ago, bernhard said:

/fields/myfield.php|css|js

I still don't understand why users should be forced to save files in one location (/fields/). 

EDIT: In addition, what if I have several RM fields (either in the same or different templates) and wanted those fields to share some base JS and CSS? That's not possible if we force users to name their JS and CSS after their fields.

Maybe I am missing something. Maybe if I saw a graphic/mock-up of how the RM field settings (Details Tab) would look like in your suggested solution, I would get it :). For now, I will let the changes I've made stay as I believe they cater for different scenarios.

2 hours ago, bernhard said:

If you mean within RM, the reason is that $input is not scoped locally. Have a look at this post downward.

If that's not it, please let me know. Thanks.

Edit: Silly me. No, POST should not work. By the time the page is reloaded (a redirect), the POST is gone.  GET, on the other hand, is 'always' ther. For POST, you can JS as a workaround (to listen to 'submit_save').

no, thats not the reason. i don't know why, but $input seems to work! i was also expecting it NOT to work without $this, but it works for $input->get...

<?php namespace ProcessWire;
$out = '';

bd($input->get);
bd($this->input->get);
bd($this->wire->input->get);
bd($input->post);
bd($this->input->post);
bd($this->wire->input->post);
return;

the one on the top is the $post and the one on the bottom the $get.

I tried it also on a different install. Same behaviour. Really strange... no idea whats going on :(

Sorry, I'm half asleep :P.

Nope, POST, should not work (a redirect has occurred, the POST is gone). A GET works because it is always there. As a workaround, JS can listen to 'submit_save.'

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog

      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.

      Hey folks!
      I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire.
      Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂
      --
      Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things.
      Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/.
      In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles.
      Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe:
      site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. --
      Requirements and getting started:
      Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.)
      --
      This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc.
      While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules.
      I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no JavaScript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode. There are 4 different view modes.
      View mode "Day" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records. View mode "Month" shows the total of all visitors per day from the first to the last day of the selected month. View mode "Year" shows the total of all visitors per month from the first to the last month of the selected year. View mode "Total" shows the total of all visitors per year for all recorded years. Please note that multiple visits from the same IP address within the selected period are counted as a single visitor.
      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      This module allows you to integrate hCaptcha bot / spam protection into ProcessWire forms. hCaptcha is a great alternative to Google ReCaptcha, especially if you are in the EU and need to comply with privacy regulations.

      The development of this module is sponsored by schwarzdesign.
      The module is built as an Inputfield, allowing you to integrate it into any ProcessWire form you want. It's primarily intended for frontend forms and can be added to Form Builder forms for automatic spam protection. There's a step-by-step guide for adding the hCaptcha widget to Form Builder forms in the README, as well as instructions for API usage.
      Features
      Inputfield that displays an hCaptcha widget in ProcessWire forms. The inputfield verifies the hCaptcha response upon submission, and adds a field error if it is invalid. All hCaptcha configuration options for the widget (theme, display size etc) can be changed through the inputfield configuration, as well as programmatically. hCaptcha script options can be changed through a hook. Error messages can be translated through ProcessWire's site translations. hCaptcha secret keys and site-keys can be set for each individual inputfield or globally in your config.php. Error codes and failures are logged to help you find configuration errors. Please check the README for setup instructions.
