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.

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)?

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.

      FieldtypeFontIconPicker
      Supported Icon Libraries
      FontAwesome 4.7.0 Uikit 3.0.34 IonicIcons 2.0.1 Cahangelog
      NOTE: Module store data without prefix, you need to add "prefix" when you want to show your icon on front-end, because some of front-end frameworks using font-awesome with different "prefix".
      Module will search site/modules/**/configs/IconPicker.*.php and site/templates/IconPicker.*.php paths for FieldtypeFontIconPicker config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Example config file : create your own icon set.
      File location is site/configs/IconPicker.example.php
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * IconPicker : Custom Icons */ return [ "name" => "my-custom-icons", "title" => "My Custom Icon Set", "version" => "1.0.0", "styles" => array( wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist/css/my-custom-icons.css" ), "scripts" => array( wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist/js/my-custom-icons.js" ), "categorized" => true, "attributes" => array(), "icons" => array( "brand-icons" => array( "title" => "Brand Icons", "icons" => array( "google", "facebook", "twitter", "instagram" ) ), "flag-icons" => array( "title" => "Flag Icons", "icons" => array( "tr", "gb", "us", "it", "de", "nl", "fr" ) ) ) ]; Example config file : use existing and extend it.
      File location is site/configs/IconPicker.altivebir.php
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * IconPicker : Existing & Extend */ $resource = include wire("config")->paths->siteModules . "FieldtypeFontIconPicker/configs/IconPicker.uikit.php"; $url = wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist"; $resource["scripts"] = array_merge($resource["scripts"], ["{$url}/js/Altivebir.Icon.min.js"]); $resource["icons"]["flag-icons"] = [ "title" => "Flag Icons", "icons" => array("tr", "en", "fr", "us", "it", "de") ]; $resource["icons"]["brand-icons"]["icons"] = array_merge($resource["icons"]["brand-icons"]["icons"], array( "altivebir" )); return $resource; After you add your custom config file, you will see your config file on library select box. Library Title (Location Folder Name).

      If your library categorized and if you have categorized icons set like uikit and fontawesome libraries, you will have category limitation options per icon field or leave it empty for allow all categories (default).

      Example : output
      if ($icon = $page->get("iconField")) { echo "<i class='prefix-{$icon}' />"; } MarkupFontIconPicker Usage
      // MarkupFontIconPicker::render(YourIconField=string, Options=array) echo MarkupFontIconPicker::render($page->YourIconField, [ 'prefix' => 'uk-icon-', // Icon class prefix, if you have different prefix, default is : "fa fa-" 'tag' => 'span', // Icon tag default is : "i" 'class' => 'fa-lg', // If you have extra cutom classes, for example : icons sizes, Array or Sting value 'style' => 'your custom styles if you have' // Array or String Value ]); Theme support
