Updating modules

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to update a module without it being in the module directory?

The same way that one in the module directory is.

Not sure I follow...yes, you can update by:

  1. Pointing to a URL (e.g. GitHub download link to the module)
  2. Uploading from a local folder...

ProcessWire will then update it. Watch out for folder names though, sometimes the module can end up at 'ProcessMyModule' rather than 'MyModule'. In such cases you should get an error about 'cannot redeclare class...'

Read this http://modules.processwire.com/export-json/

You have the option to change the following in your config.php

$config->moduleServiceURL = 'http://modules.processwire.com/export-json/';
$config->moduleServiceKey = (__NAMESPACE__ ? 'pw300' : 'pw280');

Example for a request
http://modules.processwire.com/export-json/FieldtypeSelectExtOption/?apikey=pw300

created from moduleServiceURL, ModuleClassName, moduleServiceKey (GET Parameter)

Yes for sure. Sorry for answering unclear. I just wanted to say that the information about the module version is pulled from the processwire modules directory by default.

You could add a hook before ProcessModule::executeEdit() and change this only if the classname of the event object matches your specific module.

Thank you @kixe I managed to achieve what I need.

Any idea what the key (pw300/pw200) is doing?

For whoever is interested. In my module I added

public function init() {
	wire()->addHookBefore("ProcessModule::execute", $this, "changeModuleService");
}

public function changeModuleService(HookEvent $event) {
	if($_GET["update"] === "ModuleName") {
		wire("config")->moduleServiceURL = "http://domain.tld/";
		wire("config")->moduleServiceKey = (__NAMESPACE__ ? "pw300" : "pw280");
	}
}

And the module autoload property is set to "autoload" => "path=/admin/module/"

Now whenever the "check for updates" link is clicked it searches for a new version on domain.tld/ModuleName, this has to return a json similar to the one posted above.

Just because it's Monday:

<?php

/**
 * ProcessWire module.
 *
 * Allow depending modules to be updated from non-standard repositories.
 *
 * In absence of this module, your module will continue to work but updates
 * will point at the regular repository. If you want to avoid that, add
 * a "requires" entry in your module
 *
 * To trigger the custom update routines, add an array "extendedUpdate" to
 * your getModuleInfo array. It can either contain a "url" entry with the
 * URL to the JSON data that describes the available update, or a "customMethod"
 * entry with the name of a public method in your module that returns that
 * URL.
 *
 * If you go the "url" way, the value there is run through wirePopulateStringTags.
 * You can add placeholders for all of the modules moduleInfo values, the module's
 * configuration values, the "moduleServiceKey" (PW base version, i.e. pw300, pw280 etc.)
 * and the module's name as, yeah, you guessed it, "name".
 *
 * If you use customMethod, it gets passed an associative array with all these values.
 *
 * A simple example for a module using custom updates:
 *
 * class TestModule extends WireData implements Module {
 * 	public static function getModuleInfo() {
 * 		return array(
 * 			"title"				=>	_("Test Module"),
 * 			"summary"			=>	_("Test for a module with a custom update location"),
 * 			"version"			=>	"0.0.1",
 * 			"requires"			=>	array("ModuleUpdateCustomUrl"),
 * 			"extendedUpdate"	=>	array(
 * 				"url"				=>	"https://bitpoet.ddns.net/update/{name}.json?apiVersion={moduleServiceKey}",
 *				// Alternative way to generate the URL through a method in your module:
 * 				//"customMethod"	=>	"generateUrl"
 * 			)
 * 		);
 * 	}
 * 	
 * 	public function generateUrl($data) {
 * 		return "https://bitpoet.ddns.net/update/" . $data['name'] . ".json?apiVersion=" . $data['moduleServiceKey'];
 * 	}
 * 	
 * }
 * 
 *
 * A somewhat minimal JSON example response for the test module above:
 * {
 *    "status":"success",
 *    "class_name":"TestModule",
 *    "module_version":"0.0.2",
 *    "authors":[
 *       {
 *          "title":"BitPoet"
 *       },
 *       {
 *          "title":"Anonymous"
 *       }
 *    ],
 *    "pw_versions":[
 *       {
 *          "name":"2.7"
 *       },
 *       {
 *          "name":"2.8"
 *       },
 *       {
 *          "name":"3.0"
 *       }
 *    ],
 *    "download_url":"https://bitpoet.ddns.net/update/TestModule_0.0.2.zip",
 *    "release_state":{
 *       "title":"Beta"
 *    },
 *    "summary":"Test for a module with a custom update location",
 *    "module_home":"https://bitpoet.ddns.org/modules/TestModule"
 * }
 *
 * For a complete example, see the live data from the official repo, e.g.
 * http://modules.processwire.com/export-json/Helloworld/?apikey=pw300
 *
 * The response must either return a property "success" with a true value
 * or populate an "error" property with a description of what went wrong.
 *

Created with massive theft of code from ProcessModule.module;)

I'm going to toy around with this in our local environment and see if I can stitch together a nice workflow with the local git repo and a post-receive hook (once I find the time).

Ask @ryan about the apikey. Maybe its just an option to limit requests in the future if needed. Currently only pw300 and pw280 is valid. I didn't check if there is a different return.

      So I stumbled over the request to allow limiting templates to be used only once under every parent page in this thread
      and found that this would actually come in handy (also in a site I've built).
      The code can be found on github and soon in the module repo.
      After installation, you'll find a new checkbox "Only once per parent" in the family tab when editing a template.

      Password Generator
      Adds a password generator to InputfieldPassword.

       
      Usage
      Install the Password Generator module.
      Now any InputfieldPassword has a password generation feature. The settings for the generator are taken automatically from the settings* of the password field.
      *Settings not supported by the generator:
      Complexify: but generated passwords should still satisfy complexify settings in the recommended range. Banned words: but the generated passwords are random strings so actual words are unlikely to occur.

      If you've ever needed to insert links to a large number of files within CKEditor you may have found that the standard PW link modal is a somewhat slow way to do it.
      This module provides a quicker way to insert links to files on the page being edited. You can insert a link to an individual file, or insert an unordered list of links to all files on the page with a single click.
      CKEditor Link Files
      Adds a menu to CKEditor to allow the quick insertion of links to files on the page being edited.

      Features
      Hover a menu item to see the "Description" of the corresponding file (if present). Click a menu item to insert a link to the corresponding file at the current cursor position. The filename is used as the link text. If you Alt-click a menu item the file description is used as the link text (with fallback to filename if no description entered). If text is currently selected in the editor then the selected text is used as the link text. Click "* Insert links to all files *" to insert an unordered list of links to all files on the page. Also works with the Alt-click option. Menu is built via AJAX so newly uploaded files are included in the menu without the page needing to be saved. However, descriptions are not available for newly uploaded files until the page is saved. Installation
      Install the CKEditor Link Files module.
      For any CKEditor field where you want the "Insert link to file" dropdown menu to appear in the CKEditor toolbar, visit the field settings and add "LinkFilesMenu" to the "CKEditor Toolbar" settings field.

      A module for managing files and folders. Supports creating, opening (e.g. viewing, playing, editing), renaming, moving, copying, deleting and searching for files. You can also view and change (not supported on Windows) file and directory permissions.

      The author of FileManager component is (c) 2006 - 2018 Gerd Tentler, http://www.gerd-tentler.de/tools/filemanager/. I modified it to work with ProcessWire as a module. Please see license files on usage in commercial projects!

      An inputfield for displaying markup editable via CKEditor.
      The module is intended for use with the Form Builder module. Allows blocks of static text to be included within a form, which can be edited in the form settings using CKEditor.
      Usage
      Install the Markup CKEditor module.
      In the Form Builder module settings, add "MarkupCKEditor" to "Inputfield types to use with FormBuilder".
      In your form settings, add a new field of type "Markup CKEditor". Enter the text you want to show in this field using "Markup Text" on the "Details" tab.
