Just wondering what software/approaches others take to the management of their code snippets.
Relatively new to PW and finding that its logical approach is making it far easier for me to reuse code in projects and encourages me to try and be more organised!
I've looked at few notes apps that piggyback of Gists - although I'm not sure if Gists is a good idea for private project work seeing as they're never totally private.
I have been following @bernhard's great tutorial on creating a Dashboard and everything has very easy to understand so far. However, I need to add a select field that a template is using (so users can create a new page from the dashboard), but I am really at a complete lost on how to achieve this. I have been googling, but can't really find anything on the matter.
$field = $this->modules->get('InputfieldSelect'); $field->name = "Select Manufacturer"; $field->findPagesSelector = "template=basic-page"; //not needed for select field $field->labelFieldName = "title"; $field->name = "Manufacturer Select"; $field->columnWidth = 34; $fieldset->add($field); I have the above code, which was originally an InputfieldPage, but since this is an options field, I have changed it. Has anyone actually gotten a select from a template (and its' values) in a module?
A while back I was trying to get Processwire working on the Homestead vagrant box - a really handy vagrant box made by Taylor Otwell (Laravel creator). One cool thing about homestead is it has its own config file where you can set 'path maps' which map a folder on your computer to the vagrant box, and then also set up hostnames. So for example you can set up 10 domains pointing to different locations on your machine, making it a nice all in one vagrant development box for your sites.
One thing it didn't do was support processwire. The way it works is it uses setup files for each site, and you can specify things like a site to use nginx, a site to use apache, etc.
So to get round this I wrote a custom setup script for it to get processwire working, and it works really well. I've put it up on github should anyone else find it handy, it's a pretty simple little script and is based on the Laravel one included in Homestead.
Hopefully it'll be useful to someone out there You can grab it here: https://github.com/rickmills/homestead-processwire
Today I have been running in mysql errors using @renobird s Module MarkupActivityLog which still uses mysqli Driver.
Although mysqli is still supported PDO driver is the default database driver in PW since https://processwire.com/about/news/introducing-processwire-2.4/
and its strongly recommend to all module authors to use/change-to PDO driver instead of mysqli.
@renobird I have sent a pull request.
A list of other affected modules not updated until now.
(I try to keep them up to date. Please help)
