Module: Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo (TextformatterVideoEmbed)

Recommended Posts

Video embed for YouTube and Vimeo

ProcessWire Textformatter module that enables translation of YouTube or Vimeo URLs to full embed codes, resulting in a viewable video in textarea fields you apply it to.

How to install

  • Copy the TextformatterVideoEmbed.module file to your /site/modules/ directory (or place it in /site/modules/TextformatterVideoEmbed/).
  • Click check for new modules in ProcessWire Admin Modules screen. Click install for the module labeled: "Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo".

How to use

  • Edit your body field in Setup > Fields (or whatever field(s) you will be placing videos in). On the details tab, find the Text Formatters field and select "Video embed for YouTube/Vimeo". Save.
  • Edit a page using the field you edited and paste in YouTube and/or Vimeo video URLs each on their own paragraph.

Example

How it might look in your editor (like TinyMCE):

Here are two videos about ProcessWire

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl4XiYadV_k

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKnG7sikE-U

And here is a great video I watched earlier this week:

http://vimeo.com/18280328

How it works

This module uses YouTube and Vimeo oEmbed services to generate the embed codes populated in your content. After these services are queried the first time, the embed code is cached so that it doesn't need to be pulled again.

The advantage of using the oEmbed services is that you get a video formatted at the proper width, height and proportion. You can also set a max width and max height (in the module config) and expect a proportional video.

Configuration/Customization

You may want to update the max width and max height settings on the module's configuration screen. You should make these consistent with what is supported by your site design.

If you change these max width / max height settings you may also want to check the box to clear cache, so that YouTube/Vimeo oembed services will generate new embed codes for you.

Using with Markdown, Textile or other LML

I mostly assume you are using this with TinyMCE. But there's no reason why you can't also use this with something like Markdown or Textile. This text formatter is looking for a YouTube or Vimeo video URL surrounded by paragraph tags. As a result, if you are using Markdown or Textile (or something else like it) you want that text formatter to run before this one. That ensures that the expected paragraph tags will be present when TextformatterVideoEmbed runs. You can control the order that text formatters are run in by drag/drop sorting in the field editor.

Thanks to Pete for tuning me into these oEmbed services provided by YouTube and Vimeo a long time ago in another thread.

No probs, but not sure it was me that mentioned oembed ryan - think I said I'd build this module and then never did (there's a theme there ;)).

The good thing about oembed is that you don't rely on third party scripts/services and many services already support it - see Ryan's module code and you'll see YouTube and Vimeo's oembed URLs

As such, this module can easily be expanded upon to provide more services.

Michael, that looks interesting. Looks like a lot of cool possibilities there and I look forward to taking a closer look and seeing if there might be another module brewing in there. But I have to admit that I find the whole oEmbed thing a bit vulnerable, as it's letting another web site populate raw markup into your site. You must have a lot of trust in whoever you let do that. It's more sensitive than linking to another service's JS. I have that level of trust with YouTube and Vimeo. I suppose I need to convince myself that something like embed.ly doesn't seem like a potential security timebomb, because the potential is very cool. I'm going to spend some more time looking at it.

This is great Ryan, thank you! My only comment is that Vimeo seems to default to https - for me at least. When I tried entering a url like

the formatter didn't seem to catch it. To my surprise I could see how to fix it by duplicating the vimeo section and adding changing it to https. Scary!

Thanks Marty, I was wondering about https URLs, but hadn't yet seen any so figured they didn't use them. I have just updated the module to support them, so they should work now (vimeo or youtube).

Most of the time my customers want self hosted videos. Usually I give them a simple File-Field and embed the video with a <video> tag and include a javascript (mediaelementjs.com) with flash fallback for browsers without html5-video support.

Medialement.js even has a youtube plugin so you can Embed youtube videos like this:

<video width="640" height="360" id="player1" preload="none">
<source type="video/youtube" src="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOEw9iiopwI" />
</video>

I have not used this module yet, but maybe Medialement.js is a interesting option to include?

Mediaelement looks pretty cool, I actually have a use for this on another project and am glad to find out about it. I need to take a closer look to determine if this is something that fits the URL-to-embed code purpose of the module without stepping over the line on front-end dev. But it certainly fits with the name and purpose of the module.

Modal popups are a good idea, but things that might be better in one's front-end development rather than in a text formatting module, given that they are more site/need specific and involve linking to local javascript files and such. These common YouTube/Vimeo video embeds are pretty much universal to the point where one almost expects one of their URLs to convert to a player, so that's what the purpose is here. And that's the most likely way this module would grow (adding more services). Still, this module may be a good starting point for branching in less universal, more site specific needs, and I'd encourage extending it like that.

OT: Re: Embed.ly - They totally lost my trust with that reversed gradient on hover in navigation. Doh.

I wish that was me. You are thinking of Marty. :) I've not launched a bunch of projects lately, not by a long shot. The ones I posted about in Pub a month or two ago were done over a long period of time.

Oh Marty's on fire alright, but it seems that new things in PW are coming faster than usually lately, so I thought you have somewhat less client work or so.

Hi all,

I'm trying to use the Embed video module, but it doesn't work for me... I followed the documentation, but it failed and I keep wondering what I am doing wrong.

Here's my work :

  • Module upload in 'site/modules/' > Check new module > installation
  • Setup > Fields > body > Details > Textformatters > Video embed
  • In my page body field, I have 2 Youtube links, but they stay as links (no embed...).

If you want to have a look at the page, here it is : http://flenglish.tux...s/the-alphabet/

Thanks for your concern ;-) (And sorry not to be able to find the answer myself...)

@celfred, you've got two problems in that example:

  • YouTube links need to be alone in their own paragraphs, there shouldn't be any other content in same <p> tag -- try adding the descriptions below or above actual YT links (also: now they're in a list, which probably won't work either)
  • Don't make them actual hyperlinks; I might remember wrong, but IMHO that way they won't work -- just plain URL as a string without the <a> tag

I hope this helps a bit.

@teppo, Thank you for your help ! It works better now although I had tried doing this, but on the second link and it never worked. Actually, this second link still doesn't work. I've changed it with another equivalent video (for my purpose), and the new link works...

I can't tell what the problem is... If I copy and paste this link, the video is available...

If someone is interested in understanding the issue, here are my 3 Youtube links (preceded by https://www.youtube.com/ [to avoid the max number of media error I get posting in the Forum]):

  1. watch?v=8-NeizIkHBY
  2. watch?v=Imum21-hdNg
  3. watch?v=dsO__o4Ezjw

Number 1 and number 3 : Video embed without any problem since I followed teppo's advice (in their own paragraph's tags).

Number 2 : no embed... Just a regular text...

Thanks again !

Again, if you want to see the original article : http://flenglish.tux...s/the-alphabet/

@celfred, either the video you're trying to embed has embedding disabled or this could be a problem (or feature, can't really tell yet) at YouTube. There's similar problem reported at the WordPress bug tracking system here: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/14377.

This example you gave returns code 401 Unauthorized and this is what oembed.com has to say about this particular error code:

The specified URL contains a private (non-public) resource. The consumer should provide a link directly to the resource instead of any embedding any extra information, and rely on the provider to provide access control.

Will have to do some more testing later.. unless, of course, someone else knows a solution / answer to this problem already :)

I am having problems with this module. It seems to save the embed codes into the database, which is good. Bad thing is that it saves only one line there. This causes every video to be the same. It seems to fail on video_id part, since my only row in textformatter_video_embed table is this:

www.
<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/9StIWIg03eM?fs=1&feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
2012-09-19 10:40:44

So it saves only www. as video_id and seems to that with every video. Is this problem only on my installation or are other experiencing the same? My url in textarea is in this format:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9StIWIg03eM&feature=related

      Hello community!

      I want to share a new module I've been working on that I think could be a big boost for multi-language ProcessWire sites.

      Some background, I was looking for a way for our company website to be efficiently translated as working with human translators was pretty laborious and a lack of updating content created a divergence between languages. I, and several other devs here, have talked about translation integrations and have recognized the power that DeepL has. DeepL is an AI deep learning powered service that delivers translation quality beyond any automated service available. After access to the API was opened up to the US, I built Fluency, a DeepL translation integration for ProcessWire.
      Fluency brings automated translation to every multi-language field in the admin, and also provides a translation tool allowing the user to translate their text to any language without it being inside a template's field. With Fluency you can:
      Translate any plain textarea or text input Translate any CKEditor content (yes, with markup) Translate page names for fully localized URLs on every page Translate your in-template translation function wrapped strings Translate modules DeepL offers translations to the following languages: English (US), English (UK), German, French, Spanish, Portuguese (EU), Portuguese (Brazil, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Russian, Japanese, Chinese (Simplified)
      Installation and usage is completely plug and play. Whether you're building a new multi-language site, need to update a site to multi-language, or simply want to stop manually translating a site and make any language a one-click deal, it could not be easier to do it. Fluency works by having you match the languages configured in ProcessWIre to DeepL's. You can have your site translating to any or all of the languages DeepL translates to in minutes (quite literally).
      Let's break out the screenshots...
      When the default language tab is shown, a message is displayed to let users know that translation is available. Clicking on each tab shows a link that says "Translate from English". Clicking it shows an animated overlay with the word "Translating..." cycling through each language and a light gradient shift. Have a CKEditor field? All good. Fluency will translated it and use DeepL's ability to translate text within HTML tags. CKEditor fields can be translated as easily and accurately as text/textarea fields.

      Repeaters and AJAX created fields also have translation enabled thanks to a JavaScript MutationObserver that searches for multi-language fields and adds translation as they're inserted into the DOM. If there's a multi-language field on the page, it will have translation added.

      Same goes for image description fields. Multi-language SEO friendly images are good to go.

      Creating a new page from one of your templates? Translate your title, and also translate your page name for native language URLs. (Not available for Russian, Chinese, or Japanese languages due to URL limitations). These can be changed in the "Settings" tab for any page as well so whether you're translating new pages or existing pages, you control the URLs everywhere.

      Language configuration pages are no different. Translate the names of your languages and search for both Site Translation Files (including all of your modules)

      Translate all of the static text in your templates as well. Notice that the placeholders are retained. DeepL is pretty good at recognizing and keeping non-translatable strings like that. If it is changed, it's easy to fix manually.

      Fluency adds a "Translate" item to the CMS header. When clicked this opens up a modal with a full translation tool that lets the user translate any language to any language. No need to leave the admin if you need to translate content from a secondary language back to the default ProcessWire language. There is also a button to get the current API usage statistics. DeepL account owners can set billing limitations via character count to control costs. This may help larger sites or sites being retrofitted keep an eye on their usage. This tool is available for all users with the page-edit permission.

      It couldn't be easier to add Fluency to your new or existing website. Simply add your API key and you're shown what languages are currently available for translation from/to as provided by DeepL. This list and all configuration options are taken live from the API so when DeepL releases new languages you can add them to your site without any work. No module updates, just an easy configuration. Just match the language you configured in ProcessWire to the DeepL language you want it to be associated with and you're done. Fluency also allows you to create a list of words/phrases that will not be translated which can prevent items such as brands and company names from being translated when they shouldn't

       
      Limitations:
      No "translate page" - Translating multiple fields can be done by clicking multiple translation links on multiple fields at once but engineering a "one click page translate" is not feasible from a user experience standpoint. The time it takes to translate one field can be a second or two, but cumulatively that may take much longer (CKEditor fields are slower than plain text fields). There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't currently on the roadmap. No "translate site" - Same thing goes for translating an entire website at once. It would be great, but it would be a very intense process and take a very (very) long time. There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't on the roadmap. No current support for Inline CKEditor fields - Handling for CKEditor on-demand hasn't been implemented yet, this is planned for a future release though and can be done. I just forgot about it because I've never really used that feature personally.. Alpha release - This module is in alpha. Releases should be stable and usable, but there may be edge case issues. Test the module thoroughly and please report any bugs via a Gitlab issue on the repository or respond here. Please note that the browser plugin for Grammarly conflicts with Fluency (as it does with many web applications). To address this issue it is recommended that you disable Grammarly when using Fluency, or open the admin to edit pages in a private window where Grammarly may not be loaded. This is an issue that may not have a resolution as creating a workaround may not be possible. If you have insight as to how this may be solved please visit the Gitlab page and file a bugfix ticket.
      Requirements:
      ProcessWire  3.0+ UIKit Admin Theme That's Fluency in a nutshell. A core effort in this module is to create it so that there is nothing DeepL related hard-coded in that would require updating it when DeepL offers new languages. I would like this to be a future-friendly module that doesn't require developer work to keep it up-to-date.
      It's Free
      This is my first real module and I want to give it back to the community as thanks. This is the best CMS I've worked with (thank you Ryan & contributors) and a great community (thank you dear reader). The only cost to use this is a subscription fee for the DeepL Pro API.

      PageImage Manipulator, API for version 1 & 2

      The Page Image Manipulator is a module that let you in a first place do ImageManipulations with your PageImages. - And in a second place there is the possibility to let it work on any imagefile that exists in your servers filesystem, regardless if it is a 'known PW-image'.

      The Page Image Manipulator is a Toolbox for Users and Moduledevelopers. It is written to be as close to the Core ImageSizer as possible. Besides the GD-filterfunctions it contains resize, crop, canvas, rotate, flip, sharpen, unsharpMask and 3 watermark methods.



      How does it work?

      You can enter the ImageManipulator by calling the method pim2Load(). After that you can chain together how many actions in what ever order you like. If your manipulation is finished, you call pimSave() to write the memory Image into a diskfile. pimSave() returns the PageImage-Object of the new written file so we are able to further use any known PW-image property or method. This way it integrates best into the ProcessWire flow.

      The three examples above put out the same visual result: a grayscale image with a width of 240px. Only the filenames will slightly differ.

      You have to define a name-prefix that you pass with the pimLoad() method. If the file with that prefix already exists, all operations are skipped and only the desired PageImage-Object gets returned by pimSave(). If you want to force recreation of the file, you can pass as second param a boolean true: pim2Load('myPrefix', true).

      You may also want to get rid of all variations at once? Than you can call $pageimage->pim2Load('myPrefix')->removePimVariations()!

      A complete list of all methods and actions are at the end of this post.

      How to Install
      Download the module Place the module files in /site/modules/PageImageManipulator/ In your admin, click Modules > Check for new modules Click "install" for PageImageManipulator Done! There are no configuration settings needed, just install and use it. Download    (version 0.2.0)
      get it from the Modules Directory History of origins

      http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3278-core-imagemanipulation/


      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      Page Image Manipulator - Methods

      * pimLoad  or  pim2Load, depends on the version you use!

      pimLoad($prefix, $param2=optional, $param3=optional)
      param 1: $prefix - (string) = mandatory! param 2: mixed, $forceRecreation or $options param 3: mixed, $forceRecreation or $options return: pim - (class handle) $options - (array) default is empty, see the next method for a list of valid options! $forceRecreation - (bool) default is false It check if the desired image variation exists, if not or if forceRecreation is set to true, it prepares all settings to get ready for image manipulation
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * setOptions

      setOptions(array $options)
      param: $options - (array) default is empty return: pim - (class handle) Takes an array with any number valid options / properties and set them by replacing the class-defaults and / or the global config defaults optionally set in the site/config.php under imageSizerOptions or imageManipulatorOptions.

      valid options are:
      quality = 1 - 100 (integer) upscaling = true | false (boolean) cropping = true | false (boolean) autoRotation =true | false (boolean) sharpening = 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong' (string) bgcolor = (array) css rgb or css rgba, first three values are integer 0-255 and optional 4 value is float 0-1, - default is array(255,255,255,0) thumbnailColorizeCustom = (array) rgb with values for colorize, integer -255 - 255 (this can be used to set a custom color when working together with Thumbnails-Module)
        outputFormat = 'gif' | 'jpg' | 'png' (Attention: outputFormat cannot be specified as global option in $config->imageManipulatorOptions!) set {singleOption} ($value)
      For every valid option there is also a single method that you can call, like setQuality(90), setUpscaling(false), etc.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * pimSave

      pimSave()
      return: PageImage-Object If a new image is hold in memory, it saves the current content into a diskfile, according to the settings of filename, imagetype, targetFilename and outputFormat. Returns a PageImage-Object!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * release

      release()
      return: void (nothing) if you, for what ever reason, first load image into memory but than do not save it, you should call release() to do the dishes! 😉 If you use pimSave() to leave the ImageManipulator, release() is called automatically.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getOptions

      getOptions()
      return: associative array with all final option values example:
      ["autoRotation"] bool(true) ["upscaling"] bool(false) ["cropping"] bool(true) ["quality"] int(90) ["sharpening"] string(6) "medium" ["targetFilename"] string(96) "/htdocs/site/assets/files/1124/pim_prefix_filename.jpg" ["outputFormat"] string(3) "jpg" get {singleOption} ()
      For every valid option there is also a single method that you can call, like getQuality(), getUpscaling(), etc. See method setOptions for a list of valid options!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getImageInfo

      getImageInfo()
      return: associative array with useful informations of source imagefile example:
      ["type"] string(3) "jpg" ["imageType"] int(2) ["mimetype"] string(10) "image/jpeg" ["width"] int(500) ["height"] int(331) ["landscape"] bool(true) ["ratio"] float(1.5105740181269) ["bits"] int(8) ["channels"] int(3) ["colspace"] string(9) "DeviceRGB" -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getPimVariations

      getPimVariations()
      return: array of Pageimages Collect all pimVariations of this Pageimage as a Pageimages array of Pageimage objects. All variations created by the core ImageSizer are not included in the collection.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * removePimVariations

      removePimVariations()
      return: pim - (class handle) Removes all image variations that was created using the PIM, all variations that are created by the core ImageSizer are left untouched!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------
      * width

      width($dst_width, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) param: $auto_sharpen - (boolean) default is true was deleted with version 0.0.8, - sorry for breaking compatibility param: $sharpen_mode - (string) possible: 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong', default is 'soft' return: pim - (class handle) Is a call to resize where you prioritize the width, like with pageimage. Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * height

      height($dst_height, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_height - (integer) param: $auto_sharpen - (boolean) default is true was deleted with version 0.0.8, - sorry for breaking compatibility param: $sharpen_mode - (string) possible: 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong', default is 'soft' return: pim - (class handle) Is a call to resize where you prioritize the height, like with pageimage. Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * resize

      resize($dst_width=0, $dst_height=0, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) default is 0 param: $dst_height - (integer) default is 0 param: $auto_sharpen - (boolean) default is true was deleted with version 0.0.8, - sorry for breaking compatibility param: $sharpen_mode - (string) possible: 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong', default is 'soft' return: pim - (class handle) Is a call to resize where you have to set width and / or height, like with pageimage size(). Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * stepResize

      stepResize($dst_width=0, $dst_height=0)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) default is 0 param: $dst_height - (integer) default is 0 return: pim - (class handle) this performs a resizing but with multiple little steps, each step followed by a soft sharpening. That way you can get better result of sharpened images.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * sharpen

      sharpen($mode='soft')
      param: $mode - (string) possible values 'none' | 'soft'| 'medium'| 'strong' return: pim - (class handle) Applys sharpening to the current memory image. You can call it with one of the three predefined pattern, or you can pass an array with your own pattern.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * unsharpMask

      unsharpMask($amount, $radius, $threshold)
      param: $amount - (integer) 0 - 500, default is 100 param: $radius - (float) 0.1 - 50, default is 0.5 param: $threshold - (integer) 0 - 255, default is 3 return: pim - (class handle) Applys sharpening to the current memory image like the equal named filter in photoshop.
      Credit for the used unsharp mask algorithm goes to Torstein Hønsi who has created the function back in 2003.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * smooth

      smooth($level=127)
      param: $level - (integer) 1 - 255, default is 127 return: pim - (class handle) Smooth is the opposite of sharpen. You can define how strong it should be applied, 1 is low and 255 is strong.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * blur

      blur()
      return: pim - (class handle) Blur is like smooth, but cannot called with a value. It seems to be similar like a result of smooth with a value greater than 200.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * crop

      crop($pos_x, $pos_y, $width, $height)
      param: $pos_x - (integer) start position left param: $pos_y - (integer) start position top param: $width - (integer) horizontal length of desired image part param: $height - (integer) vertical length of desired image part return: pim - (class handle) This method cut out a part of the memory image.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * canvas

      canvas($width, $height, $bgcolor, $position, $padding)
      param: $width = mixed, associative array with options or integer, - mandatory! param: $height = integer, - mandatory if $width is integer! param: $bgcolor = array with rgb or rgba, - default is array(255, 255, 255, 0) param: $position = one out of north, northwest, center, etc, - default is center param: $padding = integer as percent of canvas length, - default is 0 return: pim - (class handle) This method creates a canvas according to the given width and height and position the memory image onto it.
      You can pass an associative options array as the first and only param. With it you have to set width and height and optionally any other valid param. Or you have to set at least width and height as integers.
      Hint: If you want use transparency with rgba and your sourceImage isn't of type PNG, you have to define 'png' as outputFormat with your initially options array or, for example, like this: $image->pimLoad('prefix')->setOutputFormat('png')->canvas(300, 300, array(210,233,238,0.5), 'c', 5)->pimSave()
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * flip

      flip($vertical=false)
      param: $vertical - (boolean) default is false return: pim - (class handle) This flips the image horizontal by default. (mirroring)
      If the boolean param is set to true, it flips the image vertical instead.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * rotate

      rotate($degree, $backgroundColor=127)
      param: $degree - (integer) valid is -360 0 360 param: $backgroundColor - (integer) valid is 0 - 255, default is 127 return: pim - (class handle) This rotates the image. Positive values for degree rotates clockwise, negative values counter clockwise. If you use other values than 90, 180, 270, the additional space gets filled with the defined background color.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * brightness

      brightness($level)
      param: $level - (integer) -255 0 255 return: pim - (class handle) You can adjust brightness by defining a value between -255 and +255. Zero lets it unchanged, negative values results in darker images and positive values in lighter images.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * contrast

      contrast($level)
      param: $level - (integer) -255 0 255 return: pim - (class handle) You can adjust contrast by defining a value between -255 and +255. Zero lets it unchanged, negative values results in lesser contrast and positive values in higher contrast.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * grayscale

      grayscale()
      return: pim - (class handle) Turns an image into grayscale. Remove all colors.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * sepia

      sepia()
      return: pim - (class handle) Turns the memory image into a colorized grayscale image with a predefined rgb-color that is known as "sepia".
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * colorize

      colorize($anyColor)
      param: $anyColor - (array) like css rgb or css rgba - but with values for rgb -255 - +255,  - value for alpha is float 0 - 1, 0 = transparent  1 = opaque return: pim - (class handle) Here you can adjust each of the RGB colors and optionally the alpha channel. Zero lets the channel unchanged whereas negative values results in lesser / darker parts of that channel and higher values in stronger saturisation of that channel.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * negate

      negate()
      return: pim - (class handle) Turns an image into a "negative".
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * pixelate

      pixelate($blockSize=3)
      param: $blockSize - (integer) 1 - ??, default is 3 return: pim - (class handle) This apply the well known PixelLook to the memory image. It is stronger with higher values for blockSize.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * emboss

      emboss()
      return: pim - (class handle) This apply the emboss effect to the memory image.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * edgedetect

      edgedetect()
      return: pim - (class handle) This apply the edge-detect effect to the memory image.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getMemoryImage

      getMemoryImage()
      return: memoryimage - (GD-Resource) If you want apply something that isn't available with that class, you simply can check out the current memory image and apply your image - voodoo - stuff
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * setMemoryImage

      setMemoryImage($memoryImage)
      param: $memoryImage - (GD-Resource) return: pim - (class handle) If you are ready with your own image stuff, you can check in the memory image for further use with the class.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkLogo

      watermarkLogo($pngAlphaImage, $position='center', $padding=2)
      param: $pngAlphaImage - mixed [systemfilepath or PageImageObject] to/from a PNG with transparency param: $position - (string) is one out of: N, E, S, W, C, NE, SE, SW, NW,
      - or: north, east, south, west, center, northeast, southeast, southwest, northwest
      default is 'center' param: $padding - (integer) 0 - 25, default is 5, padding to the borders in percent of the images length! return: pim - (class handle) You can pass a transparent image with its filename or as a PageImage to the method. If the watermark is bigger than the destination-image, it gets shrinked to fit into the targetimage. If it is a small watermark image you can define the position of it:
      NW - N - NE | | | W - C - E | | | SW - S - SE  
      The easiest and best way I have discovered to apply a big transparency watermark to an image is as follows:
      create a square transparent png image of e.g. 2000 x 2000 px, place your mark into the center with enough (percent) of space to the borders. You can see an example here! The $pngAlphaImage get centered and shrinked to fit into the memory image. No hassle with what width and / or height should I use?, how many space for the borders?, etc.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkLogoTiled

      watermarkLogoTiled($pngAlphaImage)
      param: $pngAlphaImage - mixed [systemfilepath or PageImageObject] to/from a PNG with transparency return: pim - (class handle) Here you have to pass a tile png with transparency (e.g. something between 150-300 px?) to your bigger images. It got repeated all over the memory image starting at the top left corner.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkText

      watermarkText($text, $size=10, $position='center', $padding=2, $opacity=50, $trueTypeFont=null)
      param: $text - (string) the text that you want to display on the image param: $size - (integer) 1 - 100, unit = points, good value seems to be around 10 to 15 param: $position - (string) is one out of: N, E, S, W, C, NE, SE, SW, NW,
      - or: north, east, south, west, center, northeast, southeast, southwest, northwest
      default is 'center' param: $padding - (integer) 0 - 25, default is 2, padding to the borders in percent of the images length! param: $opacity- (integer) 1 - 100, default is 50 param: $trueTypeFont - (string) systemfilepath to a TrueTypeFont, default is freesansbold.ttf (is GPL & comes with the module) return: pim - (class handle) Here you can display (dynamic) text with transparency over the memory image. You have to define your text, and optionally size, position, padding, opacity for it. And if you don't like the default font, freesansbold, you have to point to a TrueTypeFont-File of your choice.

      PageImage Manipulator - Example Output


    • By d'Hinnisdaël
      Format Datetime fields as Carbon instances.
      You can find the latest release and the complete readme on Github.
      Installation
      composer require daun/datetime-carbon-format Usage
      All Datetime fields will now be formatted as Carbon instances instead of strings. Some examples:
      // $page->date is a Datetime field // Output format: j/n/Y echo $page->date; // 20/10/2020 echo $page->date->add('7 days'); // 27/10/2020 echo $page->date->format('l, F j'); // Monday, October 20 echo $page->date->year; // 2020 echo $page->date->diffForHumans(); // 28 minutes ago Frontend only
      The ProcessWire admin seems to expect datetime fields to be strings. This module will only return Carbon instances on frontend page views.
      Date output format
      When casting a Carbon instance to a string (usually when outputting the field in a template), the field's date output format will be respected.

      PS. I remember reading about a Carbon module in a recent newsletter, but couldn't find it anywhere. Was that you, @bernhard?
