Module: Instagram Feed

Recommended Posts

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

Nope. This module uses the built-in WireCache functionality which defines the following caching periods:

const expireNow = 0;
const expireHourly = 3600; 
const expireDaily = 86400;
const expireWeekly = 604800;
const expireMonthly = 2419200;

— 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)?

This isn't possible, this module just uses the existing instagram endpoints.

Hi, I did just a short look at the instagram api and both implemented endpoints seem to submit a media-id inside the returned array. If this is not the right one, if have no idea as well

{
    "data": [{
        "comments": {
            "count": 0
        },
        ...
        "type": "image",
        "id": "22721881",
        ...
    }]

My app is kind of a social wall that is running for days/weeks on end and I would like to automate the retrieval of a new access token.
 
Problem: we never know when Instagram might decide to revoke the access token.
 
Once the old one has been revoked, the Instagram API will return error_type=OAuthAccessTokenError. Whenever the response contains this, I would like to generate a new one automatically and save it to the module settings.
 
Looking at the getCode() method, it requires superuser priviliges to get the access token because the redirect URL for getting the code from Instagram lies within the PW admin.
 
So I tink I need to provide a publicly accessible redirect URL to handle the process of aquiring the new access token. Am I heading in the right direction here?
 
(Sorry if this may sound like a silly question. But it is the first time for me working with the Instagram API).
 
EDIT: Sorry, I should have read through the module code more carefully. I think, all it takes to automate retrieval of new access token is modifications to
1. sendRequest method to handle authorization failure and get the new accesstoken
2. getCode method to allow handing back the URL for code retrieval when not logged in as superuser
3. have a module setting to cater for automatic update of access token
 
I will give it a shot and report back here how it goes.
 
2nd EDIT: After doing quite some digging and reading carefully through the Instagram API docs and usage policy, I found that the API is not supposed to be used for automated aquisition of access tokens the way I was originally planning it and the way I can do it eg with Twitter API. Instagram is pretty restrictive  and they clearly state in their Platform Policy

Do not abuse the API Platform, automate requests, or encourage unauthentic behavior. This will get your access turned off.

Various sources state that their access token has been working for quite a long time (up to 3 years). So I don't worry too much about the access token being revoked during the time my social wall will be up.

Anyways, I will cater for the rare case that the access token is invalid at some point in time. I will extend this great module so that the superuser gets notified by email when authentication problems occur during requests to the API. Then they can do a manual refresh of the access token through the link in the module admin interface.

To retrieve tagged media with

$media =  $modules->get('InstagramFeed)->getRecentMediaByTag('mytag')

  I had to add scope=public_content to the url for getting the code in the getCode() method:

      $request = array(
        'client_id' => $this->clientId,
        'redirect_uri' => $redirect,
        'response_type' => 'code',
        'scope' => 'public_content'
      );

After that I had to click the 'get Access Token' link again and renew the permissions for the app.

Otherwise I always received an empty result.

In the Instagram API docs they state that the public_content scope is required.

With the module as is now, it only gets the basic permissions in the getCode() method by omitting the scope parameter. (more about scopes in the API docs)

Can anyone confirm that they have successfully received results for the getRecentMediaByTag() call without adding scope=public_content to the 'get Access Token' link url?

Hello, 

seems to be the right one. 

Hi, I did just a short look at the instagram api and both implemented endpoints seem to submit a media-id inside the returned array. If this is not the right one, if have no idea as well

{
    "data": [{
        "comments": {
            "count": 0
        },
        ...
        "type": "image",
        "id": "22721881",
        ...
    }]
}

But how to make a call now ? From the Module ? 

I treid do realize it self but my php are not enough for this currently.

@iNoize

To make a call, you need to have the module installed and gone through the process of generating your access token (which is desribed in the module howto).

Then you can make calls from anywhere in yoru templates:

$instagram = $modules->get('InstagramFeed'); // load the module

$userMedia = $instagram->getRecentMedia(); // get media of your user

Then you should have a look at the PHP example to see how you can access values inside $userMedia.

$userMedia is just an example name. You can call that whatever you want. in the PHP example it is called $feed. $feed is an array of the media for that instagram user. You need to loop through that array in a foreach to access the contained media items and extract their properties for display.

@gebeer thanks for your advice it works for me like in the examples but what i need is the  last comments self, 

if put out the whole feed 

<pre>
<?php vardump($feed); ?>
</pre>

there are no comments in the array ? So my question was is it possible with this module ? or is it possible to rewrite a litle this module ? 

my php skills are not so good that i could do it self.

@iNoize

getting comments is not implemented in the module. One would have to extend the module code to call the comments endpoint for every media object.

Sorry, but I don't have the time for this right now.

Thanks for testing. Using this endpoint you just get the number of comments, not the comment itself.

["comments"]=>
  array(1) {
    ["count"]=>
    int(1)
}

Here you go: new InstagramFeed version 1.0.0  :)

  • add required scope public_content to retrieve tagged media with getRecentMediaByTag('tag') (thanks @gebeer)
  • add ProcessWire 3.x compatibility
  • add endpoint to get a list of recent comments on a media object: getRecentComments($media)

Example:

<?php 
$feed = $modules->get('InstagramFeed')->getRecentMedia(); ?>

<div class="instagram>
  <?php foreach ($feed as $media): ?>
    <?php if ($media['type'] === 'image'): ?>
      <a href="<?=$media['link']; ?>" class="instagram-item">
        <img src="<?=$media['images']['thumbnail']['url']; ?>" alt="">
      </a>

      // display comments
      <?php $comments = $modules->get('InstagramFeed')->getRecentComments($media); ?>
      <?php if ($comments): ?>
        <ul>
          <?php foreach ($comments as $comment): ?>
            <li><?=$comment['text']?></li>
          <?php endforeach; ?>
        </ul>
      <?php endif; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

  <?php endforeach; ?>
</div>

A comment ($comment in the example above) contains the following data:

"created_time": "1280780324",
"text": "Really amazing photo!",
"from": {
  "username": "snoopdogg",
  "profile_picture": "http://images.instagram.com/profiles/profile_16_75sq_1305612434.jpg",
  "id": "1574083",
  "full_name": "Snoop Dogg"
},
"id": "420"

@justb3a Thanks a lot but something goes wrong there in your example ? 

Ah, thanks for your hint. There was a missing opening `<?php` tag. I corrected the example above as well as the Github readme.

No. Never. Should I? From time to time I dream about some code someone might need and put it inside a module :D:D :) 

 

Thanks @LostKobrakai for pointing out the sandbox mode. more about sandbox mode

I'm getting the following warning when trying to render the feed:

Warning: constant(): Couldn't find constant WireCache::expireWeekly in/path/to/public_html/site/assets/cache/FileCompiler/site/modules/InstagramFeed/InstagramFeed.module on line 286

I am running PW version 3.0.33.

Any thoughts what might be causing this?

Thanks for the help!

Hm... I still seem to be having issues.

I'm getting: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach()

When trying to loop the instagram posts. I'm trying to get posts by method getRecentMediaByTag

Any thoughts?

Could you please output the variable before starting the foreach loop (var_dump($feed);). I guess it's empty. Are you sure that the generation of the access token has gone right?

I get NULL when I do a var_dump.

I have a Client ID and Secret, then saved the page. Then came back and then clicked get access token and re-saved.

I've just tried clearing the access token, regenerating the Client secret saving the page and then getting the access token again but I'm still getting NULL.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      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! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      InputfieldSlideToggle
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Status
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      Size
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

       
      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

       
      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

       
      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
