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.

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.

      Croppable Image 3
      for PW 3.0.20+
      Module Version 1.1.16
      Sponsored by http://dreikon.de/, many thanks Timo & Niko!
      You can get it in the modules directory!
      Please refer to the readme on github for instructions.
       
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Updating from prior versions:
       
      Updating from Croppable Image 3 with versions prior to 1.1.7, please do this as a one time step:
      In the PW Admin, go to side -> modules -> new, use "install via ClassName" and use CroppableImage3 for the Module Class Name. This will update your existing CroppableImage3 module sub directory, even if it is called a new install. After that, the module will be recogniced by the PW updater module, what makes it a lot easier on further updates.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      For updating from the legacy Thumbnail / CropImage to CroppableImage3 read on here.

      UPDATE: I have published a stable version of this module!
      Discussion thread:
      Github: https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      ---
      Hello there,
      I'm working on a tiny textformatter module that searches the text for titles of other pages on your site and creates hyperlinks to them. I'm not sure if something like this exists already, but I haven't found anything in the module directory, so I wrote my own solution 🙂
      It's not properly tested yet and is still missing some functionality I would like to implement, so at the moment it should be considered in BETA. Features include limiting the pages that will get searched by template, and adding a custom CSS class to the generated hyperlinks. As I'm writing this I noticed that it will probably include unpublished and hidden pages at the moment, so yeah ... it's still in development alright 😅
      You can download the module from Github:
      https://github.com/MoritzLost/TextformatterPageTitleLinks
      There's some more information in the readme as well.
      Anyway, let me know what you think! I'm happy about any feedback, possible improvements or ideas on how to improve the module. Cheers.

      I'm really in love with FormBuilder, but the one thing missing to match all my end users' expectations were repeatable field groups. Think repeaters, in ProcessWire terms. Our primary application of PW is our corporate intranet, so "lines" of fields are quite common in the forms I build. We have all kinds of request forms where the information for a varying number of colleagues needs to be entered (from meal order to flight booking request) and where it is simply impractical to send a form for each, and I don't want to clutter my forms with multiple instances of fields that may only get used ten percent of the time.
      That's why I started to build FormBuilderMultiplier (link to GitHub).
      What it does:
      Adds an option to make a regular Fieldgroup repeatable Lets you limit the number of instances of a Fieldgroup on the form Adds an "Add row" button the form that adds another instance of the Fieldgroup's fields Adds a counter suffix at the end of every affected field's label Stores the entered values just like regular fields Makes the entered values available in preview and email notifications Supports most text based fields, textareas and selects (really, I haven't had enough time to test all the available choices yet) What it doesn't do (yet):
      Support saving to ProcessWire pages (i.e. real Repeaters) I haven't tested all the validation stuff, Date/Time inputs etc. yet, but since I'm utterly swamped with other stuff at work, I didn't want to wait until I have it polished. Any feedback is welcome. There might also be some issues with different output frameworks that I haven't encountered yet. The forms I work with mostly use UIKit.
      Status:
      Still alpha, so test well before using it in the field.
      Known issues:
      When rows are added, the form's iframe needs to be resized, which isn't completely clean yet.
      How it works:
      The Fieldgroup settings are added through regular hooks, as is the logic that adds the necessary field copies for processing the form and displaying previews.
      "Multiplied" field instances are suffixed with _NUM, where NUM is an incremental integer starting from 1. So if you have add two fields named "surname" and "givenname" to a fieldgroup and check the "multiply" checkbox, the form will initially have "surname_1" and "givenname_1" field (I'm still considering changing that to make the risk to shoot oneself into the foot by having a regular "surname_1" field somewhere else in the form less likely).
      When a "row" is added, the first row is cloned through JS and the counter in the fields' IDs, names and "for" attributes as well as the counter in the label are incremented before appending the copies to the Fieldset container in the form.
      To keep backend and frontend in sync, a hidden field named [name of the fieldset]__multiplier_rows is added to the form. Both the backend and the frontend script use this to store and retrieve the number of "rows".
      ToDo:
      Naturally, add the option to store the data in real repeaters when saving to pages. Do a lot of testing (and likely fixing). Make a few things (like the "Add row" button label etc.) configurable in field(set) context. Add a smooth API to retrieve the multiplied values as WireArrays. The mandatory moving screenshot:
