GUID Generator

Recommended Posts

GUID Generator

Generate a globally unique identifier (GUID) for Inputfield Text.

Usage

For each instance of a text field the field settings will be extended. Navigate to Admin > Setup > Fields and edit the desired field. Click on the Input Tab and click on the "Generate GUID" area. It extends downwards and reveals a form to enable automatic GUID generation.

After having enabled GUID generation for a text field, edit a page which has a template containing this field. You'll see the field filled with a GUID.

The company which I'm working for develops apps, too. And for one of them we need a little notification system. Just a little endpoint which returns json. The app saves all notes which have been sent to the user. To be able to identify which message has already been shown, we need a global identifier. 

The workflow is as follows:

  • Login PW Admin
  • add a new page, the "id" field will be populated with a GUID
  • fill in all other fields which should be sent
  • an endpoint returns json, for example something like the following
[
  {
   "id":"936DA01F-9ABD-4D9D-80C7-02AF85C822A8",
   "url":"https:\/\/domain.com\/endpoint\/notice1\/",
   ..
  },
 {
   "id":"A36DA01F-9ABD-4D9D-80C7-02AF85C822A8",
   "url":"https:\/\/domain.com\/endpoint\/notice2\/",
   ..
  }
]
  • as you can see, for each note there's a "detail" page which will return the actual message
  • if someone opens the app, it checks whether there are new notes and displays them

      Email Verification
      This module provides functions to validate email adresses and hosts. The module generates a textfile for blacklisted mailhosts (trashmail), which will be always up to date.
      Download
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/email-verification/
      API
      // get module $mailcheck = $modules->get('EmailVerification'); // return bool/ string - automatted update of blacklist file $mailcheck->blacklisted(email|domain) // return bool - validate a top level domain, checks against IANA list $mailcheck->validTLD(tld) // return array of punycoded TLDs - cyclic updated, data pulled from IANA $mailcheck->getTLDs(cycle=2592000) // return bool - checks syntax converts to punycode $mailcheck->validDomainName(domain); // return bool - checks punycode encoded syntax $mailcheck->validHostName(host); // return bool - checks syntax and accessibility $mailcheck->validHost(email|domain) // add a single value to blacklist $mailcheck->addToBlacklist(email|domain) USAGE
      $mailcheck = $modules->get('EmailCheck'); $email = 'susi@trashmail.com'; if($mailcheck->blacklisted($email)) echo 'Email Provider not allowed'; if(!$mailcheck->validHost($email)) echo 'Mailhost not available'; Example blacklist file:  blacklist.txt

      Code Blocks Textformatter is a tiny Textformatter module I cooked up to add support for code blocks to text/textarea/RTE fields on some of the sites I work with. Unlike a full-blown Markdown Textformatter – which is something that we already have in the core – this module simply adds support for fenced and inline code blocks.
      The syntax is based on the GitHub code block documentation, so please refer to that for additional instructions. The README at GitHub also includes some basic examples. As with any Textformatter, in order to enable this one, install it and enable it via field settings. Note that there's no syntax highlighting built in (at least for the time being), so use a tool of your choice for that – personally I prefer Prism.js.
      Since this module doesn't use a Markdown tool behind the scenes, but rather some home baked regular expressions, there's always the possibility that I've missed something – but please let me know if you use this module and run into any issues. On the other hand this module should be relatively fast and unobtrusive, as there are no unnecessary bits of code to run

      Here is my first processwire module (beta).
      https://github.com/theo222/ImagePickerField
      A lot of "first times". First time Github, Markdown and of course PW Modules.
      So be gentle please.
      I hope it works.

      Image Animated GIF  v 2.0.2
       
      Module for PW 2.5 stable or newer, but is obsolete for PW Versions greater then 3.0.89 (... read more ...)
       
      This module helps with resizing and cropping of animated GIFs when using the GD-Library.
      The GD-Library does not support this.


      This module is completely based upon the fantastic work of

         László Zsidi (http://www.gifs.hu/, builts the initial classes)
         xurei (https://github.com/xurei/GIFDecoder_optimized, enhanced the classes)


      I have ported it to a PW module and it works with core imagefields, together with Pia and with CropImagefields that uses the new naming scheme since PW 2.5.
       
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      read more in this post about the rewrite from version 1.0.0 to version 2.0.0
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      You can find it in the modules directory: https://modules.processwire.com/modules/image-animated-gif/
      and on Github: https://github.com/horst-n/ImageAnimatedGif
