Module: Instagram Feed

Recommended Posts

Represents the instagram feed of a user.

Instructions:

  1. Register a new instagram Client: at instagram. It's really important to add the current url as redirect url. (For example "http://page.dev/processwire/module/edit?name=InstagramFeed/").
  2. Complete module settings (Client ID and Secret), leaving the access input token field empty. This value will be generated.
  3. Click the "get Access Token" link to generate code and access token in module settings.
  4. Configure username to output feed from (default setting is "self":  to get the most recent media published by the owner of the access token)
  5. ... and use it!

Hey this looks great! I have one recommendation that you might want to consider, I didn't see anything that caches the json array that you get back. I had an issue with a site a while back where periodically due to the server having to make a round trip to the instagram api every load the rest of the page would hang a bit. Not really an issue if you are using something like procache, but maybe a cache option might be a good idea for a configurable option . Just a thought. :)

I used an article on stack overflow, I think it was this post: 

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20558078/caching-instagram-api-requests-using-php

I don't think I had to do too much. I didn't end up using markup cache as you could I just cached the file to a static directory in my cache folder. You can see in the script where you could parameterize your settings in. Good luck . :)

Yeah good point there is that too. I think why I used that was in debugging, having direct access to the file made it easier to just delete it and have it re-cache, also I got to play around with some bare metal php.

My first site with PW has an Instagram feed coded in the most horrible way haha, just like, plugged in from everywhere because I didn´t understand much of PW modules (I think I still don´t haha).

I did resolve the caching issue just by saving the response in a file (though using file_put_content and stuff like that, no fancy PW functionalities, not even saving it inside the cache folder!!) , and also managed to make an ajax call to keep calling more images with the pagination API (that would be really nice to have in the module also!). With each new call, I updated the cache file list of image data and substituted the next pagination id.

Some of my doubs is if suddenly a big cache file could turn troublesome and also I don´t really get how you could call a module function from an AJAX call, like, do you use an URL?

Anyway, thanks for this nice module!

Thanks for all your input! I decided to use the built-in WireCache functionality.

v0.0.2

(module settings)

Cache Expire: By default a cache lasts for one day but you can select another lifetime:

  • ... hourly, daily, weekly, monthly
  • ... never, to prevent expiration
  • ... save, to expire when any page or template is saved
  • by clicking the link below all module caches will be deleted

THANKS!

Tried it and seem to be getting strange results, sometimes the images appear and sometimes not - bottom of this page: http://www.benbyford.com/about/

Is there a problem with Instagram connection or caching or something?

<?php
    $feed = $modules->get('InstagramFeed')->getRecentMedia();
    foreach ($feed as $image): ?>
        <a href="<?=$image['link']; ?>" class="instagram-item">
            <img src="<?=$image['images']['thumbnail']['url']; ?>" alt="">
        </a>
        <div class="hidden">
        </div>
    <?php endforeach; ?>

@benbyf: which ProcessWire version are you using? What’s your cache setting in module settings? What happens if you disable caching (set it to “now”). If caching is enabled, have a look at your database table caches. There should be an entry named module.instagramfeed-recentmedia. Is the depending “data” field filled? There should be json including your requested images.

Which ProcessWire version are you using? Have a look at your database table caches. There should be an entry named module.instagramfeed-recentmedia. Is the depending “data” field filled? There should be json including your requested images.

Have a look at the ProcessWire error log, if something went wrong while authentification / receiving access token there should be an entry. 

In your instagram client settings, did you activate "Enforce signed requests" (this checkbox must be unchecked!). 

In module settings is there an access token?

Clear the cache for this module in module settings.

Make sure you have the username spelled correctly or leave it empty (default: self).

I receive your media without any problem:

I added this endpoint, could you please pull develop branch and test it? 

Get a list of recently tagged media
  • getRecentMediaByTag($tagname)
<?php $feed = $modules->get('InstagramFeed')->getRecentMediaByTag('processwire'); ?>

whats the intagram strategy, its like they're locking it down more and more with the new approval process and new sandbox mode. https://www.instagram.com/developer/sandbox/

also do you create one client, or multiple clients - new one for each site? If multiple its almost impossible to do as each time you have to setup, submit to approve with instagram (including a step that asks you to submit a video of how your using instagram...) and wait.

:( boo instagram boo!

Hello, 

is it possible to set more than one hashtag and set limit for the page ?  My idea is to inegrate it in a blog. and only e.G. 4 last pics with hashtags should be visible on the current post.

maybe something like

<?php $feed = $modules->get('InstagramFeed')->getRecentMediaByTag('processwire, cms'); ?> 

Thanks

@iNoize: I cannot find an instagram api endpoint which supports more than one tag. If you're not able to get your request fullfilled by using the official instagram app or website, it won't work in most cases.

I have to say that I personally don't use instagram. I just created an account to develop this module which I needed for a client project.  :P

First of all, great plugin!

Two questions:

— Is there a way to update the cache every 60 seconds?

— Is it possible to access the "high_resolution" endpoints, even though they aren't already implemented in instagram API (files are there but not implemented)?

      I'm really in love with FormBuilder, but the one thing missing to match all my end users' expectations were repeatable field groups. Think repeaters, in ProcessWire terms. Our primary application of PW is our corporate intranet, so "lines" of fields are quite common in the forms I build. We have all kinds of request forms where the information for a varying number of colleagues needs to be entered (from meal order to flight booking request) and where it is simply impractical to send a form for each, and I don't want to clutter my forms with multiple instances of fields that may only get used ten percent of the time.
      That's why I started to build FormBuilderMultiplier (link to GitHub).
      What it does:
      Adds an option to make a regular Fieldgroup repeatable Lets you limit the number of instances of a Fieldgroup on the form Adds an "Add row" button the form that adds another instance of the Fieldgroup's fields Adds a counter suffix at the end of every affected field's label Stores the entered values just like regular fields Makes the entered values available in preview and email notifications Supports most text based fields, textareas and selects (really, I haven't had enough time to test all the available choices yet) What it doesn't do (yet):
      Support saving to ProcessWire pages (i.e. real Repeaters) I haven't tested all the validation stuff, Date/Time inputs etc. yet, but since I'm utterly swamped with other stuff at work, I didn't want to wait until I have it polished. Any feedback is welcome. There might also be some issues with different output frameworks that I haven't encountered yet. The forms I work with mostly use UIKit.
      Status:
      Still alpha, so test well before using it in the field.
      Known issues:
      When rows are added, the form's iframe needs to be resized, which isn't completely clean yet.
      How it works:
      The Fieldgroup settings are added through regular hooks, as is the logic that adds the necessary field copies for processing the form and displaying previews.
      "Multiplied" field instances are suffixed with _NUM, where NUM is an incremental integer starting from 1. So if you have add two fields named "surname" and "givenname" to a fieldgroup and check the "multiply" checkbox, the form will initially have "surname_1" and "givenname_1" field (I'm still considering changing that to make the risk to shoot oneself into the foot by having a regular "surname_1" field somewhere else in the form less likely).
      When a "row" is added, the first row is cloned through JS and the counter in the fields' IDs, names and "for" attributes as well as the counter in the label are incremented before appending the copies to the Fieldset container in the form.
      To keep backend and frontend in sync, a hidden field named [name of the fieldset]__multiplier_rows is added to the form. Both the backend and the frontend script use this to store and retrieve the number of "rows".
      ToDo:
      Naturally, add the option to store the data in real repeaters when saving to pages. Do a lot of testing (and likely fixing). Make a few things (like the "Add row" button label etc.) configurable in field(set) context. Add a smooth API to retrieve the multiplied values as WireArrays. The mandatory moving screenshot:

      Hello there,
      I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution 🙂
      It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright 😅
      You can download the module from Github:
      https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      There's some more information in the readme as well.
      Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.

      This module provides a way to rapidly generate Page fields and the required templates and pages for use as a drop down select (or any other Page field type).
      This module will let you create a full page field setup in literally a few seconds 
      To use, run Page Field Select Creator from the Setup Menu
      Enter a Field Title, eg: Room Types Select Options - These will become the child pages that will populate the page field select options. There are two different options.
       
      Option 1. TITLE FIELD ONLY - enter one option per line, eg:
       
      Single
      Double
      Suite
       
       
      Option 2. MULTIPLE FIELDS - the first line is used for the field names and the first field must be 'Title'. Subsequent lines are the values for the fields, eg:
       
      Title, Number of Beds, Number of People, Kitchen Facilities
      Single, 1, 1, Fridge Only
      Double, 2, 2, Fridge Only
      Suite, 3, 6, Full Kitchen
        Choose the parent where the page tree of options will be created, eg a hidden "Options" parent page Select a "Deference in API as" option depending on your needs Choose the input field type Check whether "Allow new pages to be created from field?" should be enabled. As an example, if you entered "Room Types" as the field title, you would end up with all of the following automatically created:
      a fully configured page field called: room_types MULTIPLE FIELDS OPTION - 3 additional fields - number_of_beds, number_of_people, kitchen a parent template called: room_types a child template called: room_types_items (with either just a title field, or with the 3 additional fields as well) a parent page called: Room Types a series of child pages named and titled based on the per line entries in the Select Options textarea The templates are configured such that the "room_types_items" child template can only have the main "room_types" template as a parent, and vice versa.

      Then all you have to do is add the newly created page field to any template you want and you're ready to go!
       
      You can grab it from:

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      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)
