Auto Smush

Recommended Posts

Module: Auto Smush

https://github.com/matjazpotocnik/AutoSmush 

Optimize/compress images.

In Automatic mode images that are uploaded can be automatically optimized. Variations of images that are created on resize/crop and admin thumbnails can also be automatically optimized. In Manual mode "Optimize image" link/button will be present. This allows manual optimization of the individual image or variation. In Bulk mode all images, all variations or both can be optimized in one click. Will process images sitewide.

Two optimization "engines" are avaialable. reShmush.it is a free (at the moment) tool that provides an online way to optimize images. This tool is based on several well-known algorithms such as pngquant, jpegoptim, optipng. Image is uploaded to the reSmush.it web server, then optimized image is downloaded. There is a 5 MB file upload limit and no limit on number of uploaded images. "Local tools" is set of executables on the server for optimizing images: optipng, pngquant, pngcrush, pngout, advpng, gifsicle, jpegoptim, jpegtran. Binaries for Windows are provided with this module in windows_binaries folder, copy them somewhere on the PATH environment variable eg. to C:\Windows.

Thanks for this - looks great, but curious if you know if they have plans to start charging ? I didn't see anything on their website (http://www.resmush.it/) to indicate the long term plans.

I don't know about plans. The service is up for quite a time, sure more over a year, but it's not clear who is owner of site. Site is created by French Tech, the collective name for all those working in the French startup market. There is also no privacy policy available, so who knows what happen with your uploaded images. There are other services with "free" plans, but with limitations, like file size (100kB) or number of images (eg. 500 per month). I actually don't like web services, because first you upload the image to your server, then upload to web service and then download it. That's why I use local tools on the server, but that come with a price, cpu & memory usage, but I can aford it, since I'm the sysdamin :-) 

Auto Smush is somehow different from other modules, since it does not add the method(s) to PageImage, thus you don't have to change your code and also you may uninstall (or disable) the module at any time without code modification in your templates.

Only started it :) Then came @matjazp and fixed a number of issues, added local tools and so on. I kinda lost interest when I made it work on my sites and do not wanted to invest more time to improve and make it ready for public. So big thanks to matjazp, and hopefully after a few iterations it will be more stable.

Great! I was looking for a module like this after https://minimize.pw/ closed the doors.

I have to test it tomorrow. I guess it works with Croppable Image 3, too, doesn’t it? Or let’s better phrase it: Does automatic mode work with all modules which extend the functionality of PW’s default image field? That would really make optimizing images a no-brainer. :-)

It's not compatible with CI3, but I think I know why and I think I know how to fix it :-) Will report, stay tuned.

Sadly I get an error when downloading the module via PW.

PW Version is 2.8

Sorry for inconvenience! I just realised that the whole directory was missing on github. I fixed that and also upgraded AS to v1.0.2 that add support for CroppableImage3.

That fixed it. (I was getting the same error.) Works great!

Is there anything I have to set up to use the local optimization tools?

I'm on a shared webspace, but each customer has a separate FastCGI PHP interpreter. So it should work according to the module’s documentation. Or did I miss anything?

The error messages say “Command "jpegoptim" not found.” or the similar message for pngs.

It looks like executable is not found because it's not within the PATH. Do php -r "print getenv('PATH');" from shell or phpinfo(); from php and check for environment variable PATH. Make sure that jpegoptim (and others) are on the path. You could also check what shell is executed: echo shell_exec("echo $0");  It's possible that it's sh and not bash  You may need to use the putenv command or determine whether your path needs to be set in /etc/profile, ~/.profile or ~/.bashrc in order for it to be picked up by the user runing php. Some versions of apache read configuration from /etc/apache2/envvars . You can set environment vars locally within a VirtualHost config using SetEnv. Or it might help if you put putenv('PATH=/your/path'); somewhere in the php, just for the test.

You could also set the path of jpegoptim (and other binaries) by modifying optimizeSettings in AutoSmush.module:

        $this->optimizeSettings = array(
            'ignore_errors'     => false, //in production could be set to true
            'jpegtran_options'  => array('-optimize', '-progressive', '-copy', ' all'),
            'jpegoptim_options' => array('--preserve', '--all-progressive', '--strip-none', '-T' . self::JPG_QUALITY_THRESHOLD),
            'optipng_options'   => array('-i0', '-o2', '-quiet', '-preserve'),
            'advpng_options'    => array('-z', '-3', '-q'),
            'jpegoptim_bin'     => '/path/to/jpegoptim', <== add this line
        );

All this is specific to the environment, so I can't give detail instructions on how to make "Local tools" to work. I'm also not a linux user, I tested tools on windows. Let me know how it goes.

Since my Linux knowledge is quite limited, I had to research and try a bit. Only the last option (inserting the path into the module file) worked – but only for jpegoptim. If i try to upload a png, I receive an error message telling me that the pngquant command doesn’t work, even if the module now knows the path to the binary.

To be honest, that’s too much work to investigate. I just use resmush.it as long as it works.

jpegoptim_bin is just for jpegoptim, the other options are:

  • optipng_bin
  • pngquant_bin
  • pngcrush_bin
  • pngout_bin
  • gifsicle_bin
  • jpegtran_bin

Would it help if you could enter the paths in the module settings page?

Of course I used the individual options.

I also tried commenting out the pngquant_bin setting, hoping that the modiule would go on trying to use the next available PNG optimizer. But it didn’t work. I got the error message that pngquant could not be found.

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I'm using OptimizerFactory library and that's how it works. Quick workaround would be changing the source code in the library, so that only one optimizer would run. Open /site/modules/AutoSmush/image-optimizer/src/ImageOptimizer/OptimizerFactory.php and change to this:

        $this->optimizers['png'] = new ChainOptimizer(array(
            $this->optimizers['optipng'], //reversed the order so optipng is first
            $this->optimizers['pngquant'],
            $this->optimizers['pngcrush'],
            $this->optimizers['advpng']
        //));
        ), true); //if true, just first optimizer will run, if false all optimizers will run

I'll see what I can do, since others that are using this library has similar problems. Author of the library does not response to this issue, but we will find a solution. It might take some time though.

Thanks for the explanation, @matjazp. As I said, I'm fine with being able to use resmush.it via the module, since resmush.it works like a charm, and I don’t have any images which are not sooner or later made publicly available (so there are no privacy issues).

Being independent from resmush.it would be a nice extra, but it’s not really required from my side. This would be interesting for cases where PW and Autosmush are used to build a website for a closed user group with confidential content which should not be send around between servers.

I made some changes in v1.0.4 (just uploaded to GH). At the bottom at the module config you can see what is the path being search for local optimizers (executables) and which optimizers have been found. If optimizer is not found, then it's skipped. I extended the search path so you can put optipng, jpegoptim and gifsicle on the root of PW ($config->paths->root) on templates directory  ($config->paths->templates) and assets directory ($config->paths->assets). If you have shell access then you can install all three mentioned optimizers with apt-get install optipng jpegoptim gifsicle Hope that helps.

Thanks for the great module, but I get the following error in php7 environment. It runs smoothly in php5.

require_once(): Failed opening required '/home/admin/public_html/site/modules/AutoSmush./ImageOptimizer.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php')

The error is gone after I change line 5 in AutoSmush.module from

require_once /*NoCompile*/__DIR__ . './ImageOptimizer.php';

to

require_once /*NoCompile*/__DIR__ . '/ImageOptimizer.php';

(remove dot before /ImageOptimizer.php)

 

However, in Local tool optimizers info, the module cannot find any exe.(EDIT: I found that you have posted solution above. Let me try first, thanks)

EDIT: Solved by simply  apt-get install optipng jpegoptim gifsicle

Just before commit to GH I added /*NoCompile*/ option introduced in lasted PW dev and somehow added dot, don't know why  :-) I hope I didn't break other things... It's working fine on windows with php 7.1, tried on linux with php 7.0 and got an error. I just pushed a fix for that. Thx for reporting.

Optimizers on linux: I can't make instructions on how to install them, since there are so many flavors of *x, but it looks like apt-get is now some sort of standard.

I get the following error when installing from PW Modules.

Also tried to download and install direct from github.

It seems to install fine but this error is apparent when I click the Settings button on AutoSmush 1.0.5

I think this was an error from running 2.7.3 (or similar).

Upgraded to 3.0.33 and all is working.

      Field Descriptions Extended
      This module enables you to extend field descriptions by dividing short descriptions with a longer text that is revealed in a toggle.
      Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/field-descriptions-extended/
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/FieldDescriptionsExtended
      Extending your field descriptions using the standard field's description field.
      Once this module is installed, it will automatically search your description field for the presence of 5 dashes (-----).
      Any content above the 5 dashes will be visible and the content below the dashes will be hidden. A 'More...' link will appear at the end of the short description which when clicked will reveal the rest of the description.
      Using Simple Markdown Editor with the description field
      If you have Simple Markdown Editor (InputfieldSimpleMDE) installed, you can enable the field description to have that editor.
      *When using Simple MDE, you can use the button (Insert Horizontal Line) instead of typing 5 dashes. More about SimpleMDE.
      Extending your field descriptions using content from a ProcessWire Page for the field description.
      You may use the content from a ProcessWire page as a field description. This would allow you to easily insert images, links, and use hanna codes.
      To use page content for your field descriptions, please follow these instructions:
      Install Select Fields module (FieldtypeFields) http://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-fields/ Create a new field using this field type, e.g. field_select. Add the field to any template you will be using for your field descriptions. Setup your help pages (for example under a settings branch) where you will store the field description content,using the template containing the Field Select. Add content to a page and select the field where that content should show. To show a short text before the link to the longer content, separate them with 5 dashes Be sure to update your settings on this page, first enable page content descriptions,then specify the name of the Select Fields field, template to search, and content field. If you create a field description using this method, please note that the description field must be blank for contexts where you want the page content to appear.
      You can freely use template context for field descriptions, but the Page Content method is not context sensitive and will display under all contexts where the description is blank.
      ----
      original post:
      This is a new module, hope to release soon, which allows extended field descriptions, in currently 2 ways.
      The main feature of the module is that you can have a short description and then a 'more...' link which drops down a longer block of text.
      This is achieved by separating the intro/visible text and the rest with 5 dashes.

      Example setup:

      the 2nd way is if you are using AdminThemeUiKit, you can show extended field instructions in a panel. The content of the panel is edited on a regular PW page. This use case would probably not be that common, but if you had a field that required some extended instructions for how to use, this could be useful; Also, since this allows you to target information and instructions down at the field level, it could reduce the amount of documentation needed on a global level, since it is a lot more context targeted.

      Breadcrumb Dropdowns
      Adds dropdown menus of page edit links to the breadcrumbs in Page Edit.

      Installation
      Install the Breadcrumb Dropdowns module. The module requires ProcessWire >= v3.0.83 and AdminThemeUikit.
      There is a checkbox option in the module config that determines if the breadcrumb dropdowns will include pages that the user does not have permission to edit.
      Features/details
      The module adds an additional breadcrumb item at the end for the currently edited page. That's because I think it's more intuitive for the dropdown under each breadcrumb item to show the item's sibling pages rather than the item's child pages. In the dropdown menus the current page and the current page's parents are highlighted in a crimson colour to make it easier to quickly locate them in case you want to edit the next or previous sibling page. If the option to include uneditable pages is selected then those pages are indicated by a reduced text opacity and the "not-allowed" cursor is shown on hover. There is a limit of 25 sibling pages per dropdown for performance reasons and to avoid the dropdown becoming unwieldy. Incompatibilities
      This module replaces the AdminThemeUikit::renderBreadcrumbs method so will potentially be incompatible with other modules that hook the same method.

      Hey guys, 
      Thought I would share a quick preview of Designme. A module we (Eduardo @elabx and I) are building for visually laying out your templates/edit screens. 🙂
      This is a really quick, zero polish screen grab. FYI. 
      Video #2 - UPDATE
      This new video shows the following features in Designme:
      Re-arranging fields via Drag & Drop Re-sizing fields via Dragging. Adjusting field settings - with live refresh. Working on "hidden" fields while Designme is active. Creating New fields. Deleting fields. Creating/Deleting Tabs. Dragging fields between tabs. Creating fieldsets. Tagging/Un-tagging fields. Fields without headers expand when hovered (like checkboxes). Live filtering of fields in the sidebar. Ability to adjust (all) Template settings without leaving Designme. Template File Tree Editing Template files source code with ACE Editor. Editing Multiple files with ACE Editor. (New Tabs) Saving files. Techie stuff Fields load their own js/css dependancies. *ready to use on creation (*most fields)  Everything happens via Ajax to ProcessPageEdit (via module + hooks). Designme has a JS api that you can use.  All actions trigger events.  We would love any detailed feedback on what you see so far. If you are interested in testing Designme. Let me know below. 🙂
