Module: Instagram Feed

Recommended Posts

I kept running into the issue of self-invalidating access tokens and wanted the site's content editors to be able to handle the generation of new access tokens themselves. The module, however, limits those functions to superusers.

Could you change the module to check for the module-admin permission? It's ProcessWire's internal permission to check who can edit module configurations. It's deactivated by default and has to be created and assigned manually, so there's no additional risk or security concern. On a standard PW installation, it still only applies to superusers. However, it gives people the possibility to allow editors to generate access tokens.

So instead of

if ($this->user->isSuperuser()) {
  $href = self::API_URL_AUTHORIZE . '?' . http_build_query($request);
  $link = "<a href='$href'>" . __('get Access Token') . "</a>";
}

it's

if ($this->user->isSuperuser() || $this->user->hasPermission('module-admin')) {
  $href = self::API_URL_AUTHORIZE . '?' . http_build_query($request);
  $link = "<a href='$href'>" . __('get Access Token') . "</a>";
}

(There's a second check somewhere further down).

Thanks for considering this. I forked the module for now, but would much rather like this to be incorporated into master.

What is the recommedned way of getting another user's recently images? Am I right in saying in sandbox mode only the dev user can display their content, so it's needed to use the profile's account to setup the dev tokens etc, or is there a way of adding another username to the sandbox so I can query their images...

Bit confusing sorry, but I can only display my own images currently, no matter what I add to the module options.

To save myself from the headaches, I only use scrapers anymore. No sandboxed accounts, no setup, no invalidated keys every two weeks. instagram-php-scraper has been working great so far. This is all there is to getting recent media of any user id or name:

$userid = env('INSTAGRAM_USER_ID');

$instagram = new \InstagramScraper\Instagram();
$account = $instagram->getAccountById($userid);
$username = $account->getUsername();
$latestMedia = $instagram->getMedias($username, 10);

foreach ($latestMedia as $media) {
	if ($media->getType() === 'image') {
		[...]
	}
}

@d'Hinnisdaël holy smokes, so shocking to me that their APi is so bad that we have to resort to this sort of thing 😦

True. Many of the recent API updates are about privacy, which is a good thing. But the rollout was more than ideal. And I'd love to go the official way and use their API. But I get emails from clients every other week, asking about invalidated API tokens after they log in from a hotel wifi. And setting up API tokens is quite the hassle. So yeah, it's scrapers for now…

To continuously improve Instagram users' privacy and security, we are accelerating the deprecation of Instagram API Platform, making the following changes effective immediately. We understand that this may affect your business or services, and we appreciate your support in keeping our platform secure.

These capabilities will be disabled immediately (previously set for July 31, 2018 or December 11, 2018 deprecation). The following will be deprecated according to the timeline we shared previously:

  • Public Content - all remaining capabilities to read public media on a user's behalf on December 11, 2018
  • Basic - to read a user’s own profile info and media in early 2020

For your reference, information on the new Instagram Graph API.

Just seen this on the instagram developer portal. I had a quick play with the facebook API explorer but couldn't get it to work as wanted (just display another user's profile image). Think we'll need to get going with this as instagram is stopping support for it's own API 😦

      Hi all,
      I'm a new to website building. Learned some CRASH course of js,jquery,php. Then I found CMS. Still learning around forum, youtube....
      Anyway, please help me with some beginer questions:
      1, About template - please correct me if I understand wrong : every page should be (or recommended) built on a template. So if in total I'll have 10 pages, 2 of them have same layout, I'll need 9 templates.  And, what fields a page includes, is not defined in page, but defined in the template that page uses. 
      2,  Where to see what modules I've installed? is it in "Modules - Site"? 
      3, I installed "PageTable Extended", then what?  As in a youtube tutorial, it should appear in Setup tab, but it doesn't.  What's in there: templates,fields,logs,comments. (I installed "Uikit 3 site_blog profile".)
      4, I did a search in Processwire website for the famous "repeater matrix" module, and can not find it, there's a Repeater, as well as a Matrix. Is it not a module?
      5, I watched this youtube tuts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqnLQy9R1A
      Anybody familiar with this tuts please help: 
      After he analysed a target webpage layout he wanted to mimic, he created some fields, some template, then based on those he created a page and input some "content" in there, then clicked "view", it's just some text. So, here comes my question, he copied a folder "assets" (subfolders are: css,fonts,js,img) over, then the page have the appearance/layout he wanted to mimic. Where does that assets folder come from?
      Appreciate any help.

      I've created a set of modules for importing (manipulating and displaying) data from external resources. A key requirement was to handle large (100k+) number of pages easily.
      Main features
      import data from CSV and XML sources in the background (using Tasker) purge, update or overwrite existing pages using selectors user configurable input <-> field mappings on-the-fly data conversion and composition (e.g. joining CSV columns into a single field) download external resources (files, images) during import handle page references by any (even numeric) fields How it works
      You can upload CSV or XML files to DataSet pages and specify import rules in their description.
      The module imports the content of the file and creates/updates child pages automatically.
      How to use it
      Create a DataSet page that stores the source file. The file's description field specifies how the import should be done:
      After saving the DataSet page an import button should appear below the file description.

      When you start the import the DataSet module creates a task (executed by Tasker) that will import the data in the background.
      You can monitor its execution and check its logs for errors.

      See the module's wiki for more details.
      The module was already used in three projects to import and handle large XML and CSV datasets. It has some rough edges and I'm sure it needs improvement so comments are welcome.

      TemplateEnginePug (formally TemplateEngineJade)
       
      This module adds Pug templates to the TemplateEngineFactory. It uses https://github.com/pug-php/pug to render templates.
      doctype html html(lang='en') head meta(http-equiv='content-type', content='text/html; charset=utf-8') title= $page->title link(rel='stylesheet', type='text/css', href=$config->urls->templates . 'styles/main.css') body include header.pug h1= $page->title if $page->editable() p: a(href=$page->editURL) Edit Project on GitHub: github.com/dreerr/TemplateEnginePug
      Project in modules directory: modules.processwire.com/modules/template-engine-pug/
       
      For common problems/features/questions about the Factory, use the TemplateEngineFactory thread.

      Pages At Bottom
      Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
      A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
      Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
      The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
      Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
      Why?
      Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
      Usage
      Install the Pages At Bottom module.
      Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.
