I prefer buttons or links top left with descriptive text instead of icons...

I am really thinking of the basics here, nothing more: id, count() that's all that comes to my mind

It's not really that simple though - a page object doesn't have count. In the case of count(), it is relevant to PageArray, PageFiles, PageImages objects, but also to field types with multiple values. Then there are template, field, module etc objects - what should be displayed for those?

 I don't disagree with you, but I also don't want to pollute the dump output with lots of extra stuff. It could easily look quite messy with several object dumps, all of which have text / button links to the debugInfo and Full Object versions.

How about doing it only for objects with ID and Array/WireArray? Just a simple isset/instanceof to decide what to do?

Im on mobile so I can't do a mock-up but I vote for a text based solution like matjazp mentioned and I would put the tabs above the dump. Just like the tabs in processpageedit. They would be code for the mouse and would not mess up alignments on the left or right.

I don't want any automatic additional info. As Adrian said the need is always different and the solution is just one extra dump away. Please save your time Adrian 😉 thanks for all your great work! Still waiting for a donation button 😉

Ok @bernhard - here's a try a tabs. I think this works ok and looks ok, although I am sure someone out there will want to tweak the look of it - looking at you @tpr 🙂 - and happy for your thoughts!

Is everyone happy enough with this so I can finish it up and commit?

@szabesz - this isn't the count of a PageArray that you were looking for, but it does return the ID of each page and is linked to the edit interface for the page. Is this at all useful? I think this is simple and clean enough not to be too messy

Is the white tab the active one? If not, I would change it so, and perhaps remove the bottom border.

However, perhaps pills instead tabs would look better here, I will make some mockups when I will have time.

Absolutely awesome 🙂 tpr is right about the bottom border but it's already great imho 🙂👍

for my understanding I'd also see the white tab as the active one (having the same colour as the dump section)

Thanks @tpr and @bernhard for the feedback - here is the new version with white tab as selected and also with no bottom border. I am going to go ahead and get this version ready for committing. If you guys want to tweak after that you can send me a PR.

I was also playing with a version where both tabs are white, but I think it's a little less clear when it's so small like this:

I like the first one. Is the dotted border style intentional or comes from tracy core? I think solid would be better.

The brown color is also from tracy core? Seems too old fashioned to me, I think very pale blue would be more modern, eg like borders in the reno theme.

The dotted style is what the Tracy core wraps around dumps. I suppose we could override it completely.

The brown - do you mean the non-active tab color? That is the color that you chose for the title header bar for all the panels. It looks browner than it really is when I do a copy/paste screenshot on my Mac - never bothered to find out why.

Do you want me to send you a copy before I commit that you can mess with, or are you happy enough?

Ok, new version just committed with the tabbed debugInfo / Full Object interface for dumps and barDumps.

Please test and let me know if you notice any problems or have ideas for improvements. 

Don't forget to do a hard reload to get the new css/js that this feature requires.

Thanks to everyone for your feedback on this - it's made it significantly better!

Thanks, I gave it a go and it was almost perfect 🙂 The main issue I found is that you applied the padding to the list items and not to the links inside them so not the whole tabs were clickable (or at least the links weren't entirely fill the tabs). I also enlarged the tab sizes to make them easier to click on. Plus I removed the dotted border styles, for me it now looks less "crowded". I needed to replace these items in 2 CSS files as I remember, but perhaps there are other places too (#D9E1EA is the new border-color I used):

dotted silver => solid #D9E1EA

As for hiding the active tab's bottom border, I enlarged the link's bottom padding by one pixel and applied a negative 1px bottom margin (instead of the existing box-shadow). I have also added some padding to the edit link at the end of the tab bar for easier click.

I didn't like the white background on hover because it looked the same as the active item, so I made it slightly darker instead.

Thanks - I like the darker hover (instead of white). I am not sure about the increased size of the tabs though - they take up a lot of space and I think they look a bit weird when you have added a title - see how they are taller than the title element.

Good catch - thanks.

Did you do this in the core Tracy files? If we're going to take this approach, I'd rather override if possible, rather than hacking the core. Did you try that and have problems?

Thanks again - always super-appreciative of your skill with this stuff.

@tpr - can you live with this? I overrode the dotted border in the module's css file and obviously reduced the padding on the tabs again.

I haven't taken the title into account, sorry.

How about using no background for titles? That would solve this issue and even make the panel clearer.

They could be made smaller but eg touchpad users would easier target larger tabs.

Edit: of course I can live with that 🙂

I'm not really sure how to make it look decent without a background - with this the title just looks out of place to me. But I'd love to see your idea for how it might look!

Do you think TD is getting much use on a touch screen? I have done small amounts of work like that, but mostly drives me crazy!

Compromise in tab height which I think is probably a decent alternative.

Yes, I thought about something like this, with some additional bottom margin in the title, and perhaps a little larger font size but that would not add too much difference. Like headlines in documents. Anyway it's ok to me leaving as it was but I feel that the new tab bar and the title with background is too boxy. 

Alternatively if the whole tab block would have the same bg color as the title (so making the title and the tabs one unit) then that could have the best of the two worlds. So on your last screenshot the area to the right of the last tab would not be white but the same as the inactive tab, even when there is no title. I can upload a preview tomorrow if you need.

Touch screen: I meant a notebook touch pad, and I sometimes have to use it, eg on a train.

Yeah, I think this could work quite well. If you feel like having a go at this tomorrow, that would be great thanks!  You can start from the latest styles.css I attached above.

Sorry, I understand - I actually use my touchpad exclusively these days - never thought I would give up a mouse, but I actually prefer it now that I am on a Mac and the touchpad is actually decent, although I am sure new Windows ones are good these days too. Anyway, I think the size I have it at now should be fine.

hey @adrian thanks for the great updates!

$results = $pages->find('template=xyz,limit=10');
foreach($results as $i=>$p) {
    $i++;
    d($p);
    $p->save();
}

this does not dump anything. as soon as i remove $p->save() it dumps the correct object.

Thanks @tpr - that looks really great! There was only one issue - in the Console panel, the page ID link was positioned at the far right of the console, rather than the dump element. Attached version fixes that if you want to take a look before I commit.

@bernhard - not sure what's going on there, it seems to work fine here. Could you try to debug why it's not working at your end please?

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog

      Feature: Copy multiple items at once! The fundament for copying multiple items was created by @Autofahrn - THX! Feature: Optionally you can disable the copy and/or paste dialog Bug fix: A fix suggestion when additional and normal repeater fields are present was contributed by @joshua - THX! 1.0.4

      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.

      Hey folks!
      I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire.
      Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂
      --
      Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things.
      Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/.
      In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles.
      Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe:
      site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. --
      Requirements and getting started:
      Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.)
      --
      This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc.
      While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules.
      I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no JavaScript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode. There are 4 different view modes.
      View mode "Day" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records. View mode "Month" shows the total of all visitors per day from the first to the last day of the selected month. View mode "Year" shows the total of all visitors per month from the first to the last month of the selected year. View mode "Total" shows the total of all visitors per year for all recorded years. Please note that multiple visits from the same IP address within the selected period are counted as a single visitor.
      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).

      This module allows you to integrate hCaptcha bot / spam protection into ProcessWire forms. hCaptcha is a great alternative to Google ReCaptcha, especially if you are in the EU and need to comply with privacy regulations.

      The development of this module is sponsored by schwarzdesign.
      The module is built as an Inputfield, allowing you to integrate it into any ProcessWire form you want. It's primarily intended for frontend forms and can be added to Form Builder forms for automatic spam protection. There's a step-by-step guide for adding the hCaptcha widget to Form Builder forms in the README, as well as instructions for API usage.
      Features
      Inputfield that displays an hCaptcha widget in ProcessWire forms. The inputfield verifies the hCaptcha response upon submission, and adds a field error if it is invalid. All hCaptcha configuration options for the widget (theme, display size etc) can be changed through the inputfield configuration, as well as programmatically. hCaptcha script options can be changed through a hook. Error messages can be translated through ProcessWire's site translations. hCaptcha secret keys and site-keys can be set for each individual inputfield or globally in your config.php. Error codes and failures are logged to help you find configuration errors. Please check the README for setup instructions.
