Hi @adrian thanks for the latest update to add autoload support (and to Ryan for putting it into the core this week) as I can now use Tracy in the preview tab in FormBuilder to do a little StreetAddress work. Much appreciated!

Nice! Glad to hear it's already proving useful 🙂

New version adds some configurable settings for the ACE code editor used in the Console panel and the File Editor panel:

image.thumb.png.fb874897ac33c90b80e05205e0430e55.png

I went with the defaults I like, but adjust to suit your preferences - don't judge my use of spaces over tabs - it's mostly about consistency when pasting into web forums and other places, but if you need another reason: Developers Who Use Spaces Make More Money Than Those Who Use Tabs 🙂

I am also a big fan of 4 character indentation but I do know that some people prefer 2, so take your pick.

The one thing that is new is the intro of Show Invisibles being set to true. That results in the following which I find quite useful at times.

image.png.77b494b57658e3b9af77094bb1d68b0b.png

Note the highlighted (in pink) character at the end. That actually isn't due to the Show Invisibles setting, but I thought I'd include in this screenshot to bring attention to this thread: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/19995-changing-structure-of-pages/?do=findComment&comment=173671 and how the Console panel can be a useful tool in finding non-printable characters that are causing syntax errors in your code.

I use this app on my Mac: https://www.bluem.net/en/projects/plain-clip/ Press SHIFT when launching Plain Clip.app to see its preferences settings panel.

I use it by launching it with ctrl+option+command+V and afterwards my launcher app performs a paste operation by simulating command+V. This way I rarely run into copy/paste issues like that.

Latest version adds a new Inputfield Settings section to the RequestInfo panel when viewing a field in the admin. This is not turned on by default, so visit the module settings if you want to take it for a spin.

Speaking of the module settings, all relevant panels now have direct links to their section in the module config settings, eg:

The cog/gear icon at the bottom right will take you directly to this, which will hopefully make changes to panel settings much easier/quicker. Thanks to @bernhard for this suggestion.

Really great addition! Thank you!

I wonder what others think of having the icon left instead of right. I think it'd be an improvement. Maybe if others think the same it would be worth the effort. If not, I'm also happy to have it on the right side now 🙂  Thx again!

Sure.

I have just made the change and spent some time refactoring the generation of the panel footer area to make future changes much easier.

Hey @adrian thx again for the great panel settings shortcut. It already saved me from a lot of clicks 🙂 

For example today I added some todos in my code and activated the todo-panel. Then I had far too much todos indexed (from AOS and other modules) and I just clicked on the settings tab and added them to the list of not-to-index folders. Works great!

One thing I noticed is that when I reload the page after adding a folder to the ignored-list the Todo-Panel was not activated any more. I activated it via the checkbox in the panel selector and clicked "sticky". After saving the module's settings this setting was gone. Is this a bug? Or can I activate this panel in another way?

Thank you!

Hey @bernhard - glad you're enjoying it.

Clearing of Tracy cookie settings (like sticky selected panels) when saving the module settings is intentional: https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/commit/f26a46724f8d36b33a637835581128875b756e1e

The trouble is that I am not sure why I did it 🙂 I'll have to have a think about why I did this - I distinctly remember doing it for some reason but maybe that reason is no longer relevant due to other changes. I'll get back to you on this.

Of course you can enable the panel permanently in the config settings, but I am pretty sure that's not what you mean.

Some more keyboard shortcuts for the Console panel:

CTRL + SHFT + PageUp | One less line in code pane
CTRL + SHFT + PageDown | One more line in code pane

Unlike the other pane resizing shortcuts, these two save the position of the divider so that it will restore to this position after a page reload. This matches the behavior when you drag the divider with the mouse.

Hm. Somehow it didn't feel right to do it that way. But it's totally fine of course 🙂 I was just curious of the reason...

Apparently I have a compulsion for new keyboard shortcuts 🙂

Just added these:

SHFT + Enter Expand to fit all code and add new line (saves position)
SHFT + Backspace Contract to fit all code and remove line (saves position)

I have also modified the drag resizing to automatically snap to row heights.

Anyone have any thoughts for this new panel before I publish it?

image.png.4e26190fc373195aaadafd650b88e027.png


Pretty self-explanatory - it shows the status of the various permissions for the current page for all user roles. This should make it much easier to quickly check things if a client complains they don't have access to do a certain action on a specific page.

I'll probably commit tomorrow, but just wondering if you guys have any other ideas for this first.

Actually, I am now wondering if perhaps this should just be a new section in the RequestInfo panel, rather than a dedicated panel. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

For a task like this (wanting to check the a client's access RE a specific page), I'm thinking it would be more useful to actually see the permissions of that client in respect of the said page, rather than scrolling through a potentially long list of all roles (e.g. a large site). The difficulty I see is, obviously, the said client is not logged in when the admin is checking out the status ;-), so this may be wishful thinking. Just wondering...

Could the colours please, somewhere, match the current colour scheme of the other panels?

I'm 50/50 on this. If I was able to view a page, put a clients name or id in an input and Tracy returns the permission panel, I wouldn't mind it being separate.

 

Just my 2p.

Good idea adrian!

You might want to flip the table rows/columns?  roles listed horizontally, permissions listed vertically.  I was thinking that there will probably always be more permissions than roles.  I would rather scroll vertically than horizontally.

That is how Drupal's permission page works.  This shows it enhanced with the https://www.drupal.org/project/instantfilter module for instant permission filtering like the AdminOnSteriods module does in Processwire.

Another idea for you:

Would it be possible on the Dumps and Dumps Recorder panels to auto expand the dump if there is only 1 dump?  That way someone doesn't have to click the plus sign or arrow to open the dump every-time the page is refreshed?  Currently by default it is always collapsed.

No worries if you can't, just a suggestion.  Appreciate all you do.

Any chance of hints or links pointing to somewhere where superusers can get more info on how to adjust those permissions listed?

Are you talking about a link to the docs or about shortcut links to the settings page of the template where the admin can adjust those permissions? The latter would be great! Maybe there could also be a section where it shows which template setting is responsible, eg:

path             | template     | active
-----------------|--------------|--------------------------------
/                | home         | yes
/foo             | basic-page   | yes
/foo/bar         | whatsoever   | no (inherited from basic-page)

The template strings could be linked to the access tab of the template settings.

Not sure how complicated that would be to implement, but I think it could be helpful 🙂 

+1 for some more thoughts on the colors! I think the red is too loud. It's not a warning imho - it's just telling there is no permission. I think the red could be removed completely. I'm fine with the green - although I think it could also be more quiet...

Thanks for all the good thoughts and ideas!

There is of course the User Switcher panel which I use the all the time to check issues a client is having - that's the best way to see the site the way they are seeing it.

I have just added a new row at the top of the table that shows the permissions for the current user (in this case "ajones"), so this is either you, or if you are using the UserSwitcher panel then it will obviously be for that user. Does that help with what you are looking for?

It is using the same colors as the other panels. The colors are all now defined as constants. in the main TracyDebugger class. I know it's a bit loud here, but the idea is for form over function in identifying which roles don't have a certain permission. That said, I'd also be ok with this if you guys prefer:

The key thing I think is that I know how many permissions there are and they easily fit on the width of the screen. I don't know how many roles there will be. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Not sure if I can because the script that handles the dump doesn't actually know how many dumps are coming, but maybe it can be done with JS after the fact - I'll take a look.

I'll need to think about this some more - I feel like we are starting to get into the territory of this module: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-access-overview/ which is not really the goal here, or at least it wasn't. I'll let you guys chime back in on what you think would actually be most useful.

Thanks again for all the feedback - greatly appreciated!

Of course! 😀. Shows you how precious little I know! The best I've been doing until recently is bd($foo, 'bar');! This week I started using the console, like seriously use it, yay! I've been blown away! Even a multi-line cursor! And bd() in the console! I was gonna ask @bernhard to recommend what else I should play with. I've been missing a lot!

So no custom permissions then?

Typically in the Console, you are better off using d() which dumps to the results panel below.

This isn't about permissions in the sense you are talking about. It's just for these page permissions:

https://github.com/processwire/processwire/blob/341342dc5b1c58012ae7cb26cffe2c57cd915552/wire/core/Page.php#L88-L107

Maybe it needs to be reimagined, but that was my initial goal for this. What does everyone think?

      Hi guys!
      I'm a bit anxious because this is the first module I present! (beta modulo) But I will finally be able to share something with the community too! :)
      This is a BETA version of the PayPal payment system called: PayPal Commerce Platform.
      It is an advanced system (Business Pro account is needed) that brings various benefits in terms of fees and above all integrates direct payment with credit/debit cards. 
      The module integrates with Padloper 0.0.2, which is the current installation I'm using.
      This system integrates the classic PayPal buy button, the alternative or local payment method and the new payment system: credit/debit cards that doesn't go through the PayPal account. It is a Stripe-style payment, it connects directly with the bank and integrates 3D security validation.
      I say that it is a BETA because this module currently only works with Sandbox account, to put it live you need to change API url manually (manually for the moment).
      Because this module is not ready for live:
      I would like to have your opinion on how I built the module (is the first one I do). I don't want to share something that is not fish but I need a comparison with someone more experienced than me, for be sure that this is the best way to code the module.
      If you want to try this I created a git, you will find all the instructions for installation and correct operation. (Git has a MIT licensed)
      https://github.com/MarcooRo/processwire-PayPal-Commerce-Platform I hope I did something that you guys can like :)

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      FieldtypeQRCode
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      A simple fieldtype generating a QR Code from the public URL of the page, and more.
      Using the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase.

      Options
      In the field’s Details tab you can change between .gif or .svg formats. If you select .svg you will have the option to directly output the markup instead of a base64 image. SVG is the default.
      You can also change what is used to generate the QR code and even have several sources. The accepted sources (separated by a comma) are: httpUrl, editUrl, or the name of any text/URL/file/image field.
      If LanguageSupport is installed the compatible sources (httpUrl, text field, ...) will return as many QR codes as there are languages. Note however that when outputting on the front-end, only the languages visible to the user will be generated.
      Formatting
      Unformatted value
      When using $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field") it returns an array with the following structure:
      [ [ "label" => string, // label used in the admin "qr" => string, // the qrcode image "source" => string, // the source, as defined in the configuration "text" => string // and the text used to generate the qrcode ], ... ] Formatted value
      The formatted value is an <img>/<svg> (or several right next to each other). There is no other markup.
      Should you need the same markup as in the admin you could use:
      $field = $fields->get("qrcode_field"); $field->type->markupValue($page, $field, $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field")); But it’s a bit cumbersome, plus you need to import the FieldtypeQRCode's css/js. Best is to make your own markup using the unformatted value.
      Static QR code generator
      You can call FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCode to generate any QR code you want. Its arguments are:
      string $text bool $svg Generate the QR code as svg instead of gif ? (default=true) bool $markup If svg, output its markup instead of a base64 ? (default=false) Hooks
      Please have a look at the source code for more details about the hookable functions.
      Examples
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $page = $event->arguments("page"); $event->return = $page->title; // or could be: $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCodes", function($event) { $qrcodes = $event->return; // keep everything except the QR codes generated from editUrl foreach($qrcodes as $key => &$qrcode) { if($qrcode["source"] === "editUrl") { unset($qrcodes[$key]); } } unset($qrcode); $event->return = $qrcodes; })

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      Features
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.
