Module: TemplatePreviewImages

Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

i'm happy to share my first little module that could have broader use...

post-2137-0-66299800-1445416231_thumb.gi

use at your own risk! i'm quite new to module development ;)

Usage

Just install the module and place your preview images in the folder /site/templates/TemplatePreviewImages

  • filename = template-name.png

Github

https://github.com/BernhardBaumrock/TemplatePreviewImages

Notes

Room for improvement / roadmap:

  • Images are resized via CSS (height: 200px)
  • Images could be placed via masonry or the like
  • create image-field to upload preview images directly to the template

looking forward to hearing your feedback :)

ps: is it intentional that i am only allowed to choose from 2 templates when adding the page and have more options available when editing the template settings of the page like you can see in the video? i'm wondering why this should be like this?!

Superusers can use Page Edit to select templates that are otherwise not available. It's a feature, though admittedly a weird one :)

Some enhancements could be:

- A setting to chose thumbnail size, maybe even giving the users the option to choose by themselves.

- Moving the images folder out of the module's folder. It should rather be part of the assets or templates folder.

update version 2

i was not sure where to put the images folder to be honest. changed it to /site/templates/TemplatePreviewImages

- added 2 fields to configure width + height

resizeing is done via jquery because i did not know how i would change the CSS dynamically based on module configuration. i tried to create a style.php instead of custom.css but that one was blocked (i guess by the pw htaccess?).

thank you for your suggestions lostkobrakai

You can define the PW minimum in the module info:
 
"requires" => "ProcessWire>=2.5.5"

By the way, you can also separate your info into a JSON file named <ModuleName>.info.json, like this.

thank you mike! where would i find this info on my own? i looked into several modules on github but didn't find it anywhere... i knew i've read it somewhere but couldn't remember... are there any docs? or in which file would i have had to look into to find all available options?

or could i've done a var_dump() or something?

Not sure of any official [updated] module docs, actually. But haven't needed to look for them before.

Great module - I love it!
 
But I had difficulties at the beginning display to the images.
When I looked into the source code, i noticed that you are looking at line 69 in the folder /site/templates for the preview images and not as stated in the description in the module folder /site/modules/TemplatePreviewImages.
 
I changed the code line in 69

$src = $this->config->urls->templates . $this->className . '/' . $tpl->name . '.png';

to

$src = $this->config->urls->templates . 'img/preview/' . $tpl->name . '.png';
and now i can store the images in the folder templates/img/preview.

Hello for all,

but first thanks to Bernhard for this module!

I also created something for similar usage (layout switcher, first image), but also do some additions to this nice module (second image).

layout-switcher-3.jpg

Here in attachment is TemplatePreviewImages module version where I added some options:

  • thumbnails creation (before usage need to create "thumbs" folder eg: "template/images/TemplatePreviewImages/thumbs)
  • can use any kind of image extension (jpg, jpeg, gif, png)
  • zoom option to preview (using PW integrated jQuery UI )
  • can restrict module to works only inside desired page tree

Regards.

i installed the module and its working fine! thanks @bernhard

the module uses the pw-InputfieldSelect output. is this the reason why the current template is always at top/first place?
is there a way to change that?
i just want to keep the sorting.

Hi ngrmm, I haven't used this module for years (wow, time flies 😮 ). I don't know what causes the reorder. May I ask why this is important for you?

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      Hi everyone!
      I'm trying out the Login/Register module for my site. Noted that the module assigns the newly registered user to login-register role. 
      Once you modify the login-register role's permissions, particularly adding page-edit, the new member role will be set to guest. 
      Thing is I'd like to grant my new users the power to create their own pages. Any advice? 
      Thanks.

      Hello
      Till now I hacked something with the twig template but it works no more with new PW versions so I look forward to create a module. I am working on a site in multiple languages : French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian. The new posts are entered in any language with a field for language. Till now, I got twig files to get the translations with constants defined for each part of the pages.
      So I'd like to create a module to include theses files added according to the url /fr/en/...
      Have you some observations to do before I begin about the direction to take ?
      Thank you

      Mystique Module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF
      Github repo : https://github.com/trk/Mystique
      Mystique module allow you to create dynamic fields and store dynamic fields data on database by using a config file.
      Requirements
      ProcessWire 3.0 or newer PHP 7.0 or newer FieldtypeMystique InputfieldMystique Installation
      Install the module from the modules directory:
      Via Composer:
      composer require trk/mystique Via git clone:
      cd your-processwire-project-folder/ cd site/modules/ git clone https://github.com/trk/Mystique.git Module in live reaction with your Mystique config file
      This mean if you remove a field from your config file, field will be removed from edit screen. As you see on youtube video.
      Using Mystique with your module or use different configs path, autoload need to be true for modules
      Default configs path is site/templates/configs/, and your config file name need to start with Mystique. and need to end with .php extension.
      Adding custom path not supporting anymore !
      // Add your custom path inside your module class`init` function, didn't tested outside public function init() { $path = __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'configs' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR; Mystique::add($path); } Mystique module will search site/modules/**/configs/Mystique.*.php and site/templates/Mystique.*.php paths for Mystique config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Usage almost same with ProcessWire Inputfield Api, only difference is set and showIf usage like on example.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : testing-mystique */ return [ 'title' => __('Testing Mystique'), 'fields' => [ 'text_field' => [ 'label' => __('You can use short named types'), 'description' => __('In file showIf working like example'), 'notes' => __('Also you can use $input->set() method'), 'type' => 'text', 'showIf' => [ 'another_text' => "=''" ], 'set' => [ 'showCount' => InputfieldText::showCountChars, 'maxlength' => 255 ], 'attr' => [ 'attr-foo' => 'bar', 'attr-bar' => 'foo' ] ], 'another_text' => [ 'label' => __('Another text field (default type is text)') ] ] ]; Example:
      site/templates/configs/Mystique.seo-fields.php <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : seo-fields */ return [ 'title' => __('Seo fields'), 'fields' => [ 'window_title' => [ 'label' => __('Window title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a window title') ] ], 'navigation_title' => [ 'label' => __('Navigation title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'showIf' => [ 'window_title' => "!=''" ], 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a navigation title') ] ], 'description' => [ 'label' => __('Description for search engines'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXTAREA, 'useLanguages' => true ], 'page_tpye' => [ 'label' => __('Type'), 'type' => Mystique::SELECT, 'options' => [ 'basic' => __('Basic page'), 'gallery' => __('Gallery'), 'blog' => __('Blog') ] ], 'show_on_nav' => [ 'label' => __('Display this page on navigation'), 'type' => Mystique::CHECKBOX ] ] ]; Searching data on Mystique field is limited. Because, Mystique saving data to database in json format. When you make search for Mystique field, operator not important. Operator will be changed with %= operator.
      Search example
      $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.show_on_nav=1'); $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.page_tpye=gallery');
