HannaCodeDialog

Recommended Posts

I have had this module sitting in a 95% complete state for a while now and have finally made the push to get it out there. Thanks to @teppo for his Hanna Code Helper module which I referred to and borrowed from during development.

HannaCodeDialog

A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Provides a number of enhancements for working with Hanna Code tags in CKEditor. The main enhancement is that Hanna tags in a CKEditor field may be double-clicked to edit their attributes using core ProcessWire inputfields in a modal dialog.

Requires the Hanna Code module.

Installation

Install the HannaCodeDialog module using any of the normal methods.

For any CKEditor field where you want the "Insert Hanna tag" dropdown menu to appear in the CKEditor toolbar, visit the field settings and add "HannaDropdown" to the "CKEditor Toolbar" settings field.

Module configuration

Visit the module configuration screen to set any of the following:

  • Exclude prefix: Hanna tags named with this prefix will not appear in the CKEditor toolbar dropdown menu for Hanna tag insertion.
  • Exclude Hanna tags: Hanna tags selected here will not appear in the CKEditor toolbar dropdown menu for Hanna tag insertion.
  • Background colour of tag widgets: you can customise the background colour used for Hanna tags in CKEditor if you like.
  • Dialog width: in pixels
  • Dialog height: in pixels

Features

Insert tag from toolbar dropdown menu

Place the cursor in the CKEditor window where you want to insert your Hanna tag, then select the tag from the "Insert Hanna tag" dropdown.

'Insert Hanna tag' dropdown

Advanced: if you want to control which tags appear in the dropdown on particular pages or templates you can hook HannaCodeDialog::getDropdownTags. See the forum support thread for examples .

Edit tag attributes in modal dialog

Insert a tag using the dropdown or double-click an existing tag in the CKEditor window to edit the tag attributes in a modal dialog.

Modal dialog

Tags are widgets

Hanna tags that have been inserted in a CKEditor window are "widgets" - they have a background colour for easy identification, are protected from accidental editing, and can be moved within the text by drag-and-drop.

Hanna tag widget

Options for tag attributes may be defined

You can define options for a tag attribute so that editors must choose an option rather than type text. This is useful for when only certain strings are valid for an attribute and also has the benefit of avoiding typos.

Add a new attribute for the Hanna tag, named the same as the existing attribute you want to add options for, followed by "__options". The options themselves are defined as a string, using a pipe character as a delimiter between options. Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":

vegetables__options=Spinach|Pumpkin|Celery|Tomato|Brussels Sprout|Potato

You can define a default for an attribute as normal. Use a pipe delimiter if defining multiple options as the default, for example:

vegetables=Tomato|Potato

Dynamic options

Besides defining static options as above, you can use one Hanna tag to dynamically generate options for another. For instance, you could create a Hanna tag that generates options based on images that have been uploaded to the page, or the titles of children of the page.

Your Hanna tag that generates the options should echo a string of options delimited by pipe characters (i.e. the same format as a static options string).

You will probably want to name the Hanna tag that generates the options so that it starts with an underscore (or whatever prefix you have configured as the "exclude" prefix in the module config), to avoid it appearing as an insertable tag in the HannaCodeDialog dropdown menu.

Example for an existing attribute named "image":

image__options=[[_images_on_page]]

And the code for the _images_on_page tag:

<?php
$image_names = array();
$image_fields = $page->fields->find('type=FieldtypeImage')->explode('name');
foreach($image_fields as $image_field) {
    $image_names = array_unique( array_merge($image_names, $page->$image_field->explode('name') ) );
}
echo implode('|', $image_names);

Advanced: define or manipulate options in a hook

You can hook HannaCodeDialog::prepareOptions to define or manipulate options for a Hanna tag attribute. Your Hanna tag must include a someattribute__options attribute in order for the hook to fire. The prepareOptions method receives the following arguments that can be used in your hook:

  • options_string Any existing string of options you have set for the attribute
  • attribute_name The name of the attribute the options are for
  • tag_name The name of the Hanna tag
  • page The page being edited

If you hook after HannaCodeDialog::prepareOptions then your hook should set $event->return to an array of option values, or an associative array in the form of $value => $label.

Choice of inputfield for attribute

You can choose the inputfield that is used for an attribute in the dialog.

For text attributes the supported inputfields are text (this is the default inputfield for text attributes so it isn't necessary to specify it if you want it) and textarea. Note: any manual line breaks inside a textarea are removed because these will break the CKEditor tag widget.

Inputfields that support the selection of a single option are select (this is the default inputfield for attributes with options so it isn't necessary to specify it if you want it) and radios.

Inputfields that support the selection of multiple options are selectmultiple, asmselect and checkboxes.

You can also specify a checkbox inputfield - this is not for attributes with defined options but will limit an attribute to an integer value of 1 or 0.

The names of the inputfield types are case-insensitive.

Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":

vegetables__type=asmselect

Descriptions and notes for inputfields

You can add a description or notes to an attribute and these will be displayed in the dialog.

Example for an existing attribute named "vegetables":

vegetables__description=Please select vegetables for your soup.
vegetables__notes=Pumpkin and celery is a delicious combination.

Notes

When creating or editing a Hanna tag you can view a basic cheatsheet outlining the HannaCodeDialog features relating to attributes below the "Attributes" config inputfield.

Troubleshooting

HannaCodeDialog includes and automatically loads the third-party CKEditor plugins Line Utilities and Widget. If you have added these plugins to your CKEditor field already for some purpose and experience problems with HannaCodeDialog try deactivating those plugins from the CKEditor field settings.

Great thing @Robin S! Something to make content creation even easier.

I see there is an option to exclude some Hanna codes from the list. What do you think about a whitelist option (preferably overridden on a template basis)?

In v0.0.2 I have added a hookable method that supplies the array of tag names for the dropdown menu. You can use an 'after' hook to control what appears in the dropdown. A couple of examples...

Define the tags for a given template:

$this->addHookAfter('HannaCodeDialog::getDropdownTags', function($event) {
    $page = $event->arguments('page');
    // Show only these tags on pages using the 'basic_page' template
    if($page->template == 'basic_page') {
        $event->return = ['some_tag', 'another_tag'];
    }
});

Remove certain tags for a given template:

$this->addHookAfter('HannaCodeDialog::getDropdownTags', function($event) {
    $page = $event->arguments('page');
    $tags = $event->return;
    // Remove these tags on pages using the 'basic_page' template
    if($page->template == 'basic_page') {
        $filtered_tags = array_filter($tags, function($tag) {
            return !in_array($tag, ['some_tag', 'another_tag']);
        });
        $event->return = array_values($filtered_tags);
    }
});

it's working well so far... the only error i encountered was because the hanna code module config may not even be populated if you install hanna code and use the defaults, and never actually save the module, so one option would be to also check if the index for that module config is set, (around like 150 of the module)...

Thanks for the report @Macrura, fixed with isset() now (no version change).

It bugs me a bit that PW doesn't save default values to the module config automatically in the module installation routine. Seems to me that is the whole point of defining a default - so some config value is present if nothing has been set manually.

it's a really amazing module, and will be indispensable for any site using hanna codes, i can already see this solving major problems with users entering incorrect stuff into their hanna codes. the options and description stuff is also amazing work!

Thank you, @Robin S, for this nice module. But I'm not sure I can use it for my special case.

To let my editor user embed a video from a internal page into a textarea (CKE), he would insert a HannaCode like this:

[[video source='LINK']]

Here the editor has to doubleclick the string LINK to select it, and click the "Link" Button of the CKE. The modal window "Insert Link" opens, and the user just needs to click "Select Page" to choose the page containing the wanted video in a field of type File. The HannaCode "video" itself would wrap the file data with the necessary code provided by the videoplayer script in use. This all works fine - even if I admit it's not very elegant.

After installing the HannaCodeDialog module, the string LINK appeares in the input field "source" of the dialog, of course. But there it's not possible to evoke the Insert Link action of the CKE. (And if there exist already some other calls of this HannaCode in the CKE-textarea, they also would become the functinoality of the module, and those LINKs were not editable anymore, too.)

So I ended in uninstalling the module. May be this could be solved by using some dynamic options - I didn't dive into these yet.

And of course, very likely my way to use HannaCode at all is a bit stupid, anyway...

@ottogal, you are right - this module will not cover your way of using HannaCode.

But if you only needed to select from videos uploaded to the current page instead of letting the editor choose another page (or alternatively from one page that contains all videos), you could adapt the approach I show in the first post for creating select options from images on the page.

Yes, I considered this. But indeed each video has to be fetched from it's own page (child of one page "video pool")...  ???

If you have a "one video per page" setup then again you could dynamically generate options using another Hanna tag: get all children of "video pool" that have a video uploaded to them.

If people come up with any nifty usages of HannaCodeDialog it would be cool to get a bit of a library going in this thread.

Here's one to get the ball rolling.

Select FormBuilder form

For the foolproof selecting of a FormBuilder form to embed in a CKEditor field.

Import both of the export strings to use this. The code is shown here just for reference.

_formbuilder_forms

Export string (import this into Hanna Code):

!HannaCode:_formbuilder_forms:eyJuYW1lIjoiX2Zvcm1idWlsZGVyX2Zvcm1zIiwidHlwZSI6IjIiLCJjb2RlIjoiPD9waHBcbmVjaG8gaW1wbG9kZSgnfCcsIGl0ZXJhdG9yX3RvX2FycmF5KCRmb3Jtcy0+Z2V0SXRlcmF0b3IoKSkpOyJ9/!HannaCode

Code (just for reference):

<?php
echo implode('|', iterator_to_array($forms->getIterator()));

select_form

Export string (import this into Hanna Code):

!HannaCode:select_form:eyJuYW1lIjoic2VsZWN0X2Zvcm0iLCJ0eXBlIjoiMiIsImNvZGUiOiJcLypoY19hdHRyXG5mb3JtPVwiXCJcbmZvcm1fX29wdGlvbnM9XCJbW19mb3JtYnVpbGRlcl9mb3Jtc11dXCJcbmhjX2F0dHIqXC9cbjw/cGhwXG5pZigkZm9ybSkgZWNobyBcIjxwPmZvcm0tYnVpbGRlclwvJGZvcm08XC9wPlwiOyJ9/!HannaCode

This module is just what I was looking for!

I'm using it to create links to a file download page, instead of to the file itself, with the 'dynamic options' method.

However, although it works perfectly, I'm getting a strange error in the Hanna dialogue modal window (see screenshot):

processwire_HannaCodeDialogue_error.png.4c1d8c79cfa35f04998895544cb16935.png

I have tried deleting the file compiler cache, but it did not resolve the issue.

Set-up Info:

  • Hanna Code: ver. 0.2.0
  • HannaCode Dialogue: ver. 0.0.3
  • ProcessWire: ver. 3.0.58
  • PHP: ver.  5.6.21

Thanks for the report. Are you running PHP 7.1? I think that's the version that started enforcing stricter numeric values and throwing errors like this.

I tested in PHP7.1 and I can't reproduce this issue. Also, I can't see how this error could be connected to HannaCodeDialog. From what I've read the "non well formed numeric value" error occurs when some arithmetic or other operation that expects an integer receives a string instead. And line 118 of Database.php is:

$timerTotalSinceStart = Debug::timer() - $timerFirstStartTime;

So probably Debug::timer() or $timerFirstStartTime is not an integer, but this is core code that relates to the debug mode tools and HannaCodeDialog has nothing to do with that.

Do you see the error as soon as you install HannaCodeDialog? Do you see it if you have no Hanna codes defined when the module is installed (I'm wondering if the problem is with one of your Hanna codes rather than the module itself)? If you uninstall HannaCodeDialog does the error go away?

Can I activate the Toolbar in CKEditor without choosing the Hanna Code Textformater and use the $hanna->render() API?

I will support this in the next version. The intention was to avoid needlessly attaching the plugins to every instance of CKEditor if the textformatter wasn't applied to that field, but I guess to support $hanna->render() there's no way to know if a CKEditor field needs the plugins or not.

I'm having trouble understanding exactly what's going wrong for you here. Make sure you meet the prerequisites and have completed the installation process:

  • TextformatterHannaCode must be installed.
  • TextformatterHannaCode must be applied as a textformatter to your CKEditor field.
  • You must have at least one Hanna code created.
  • Install HannaCodeDialog module.
  • Edit the settings for your CKEditor field and in "Input > CKEditor Settings > CKEditor Toolbar" add "HannaDropdown" (to be precise, with a comma space separating it from the other items there)

v0.0.5 released. Allows use of the dropdown/dialog in CKEditor fields that do not have the Hanna Code textformatter applied to them, in order to support $hanna->render() usage.

I haven't tried this module so this request may be out of sync but how about adding items that wouldn't require Hanna code module? What I have in mind is having eg a

$config->hannaCodeDialogItems = array( item1 => function () { ... }, ... )

code somewhere in template files so one could easily insert custom items to ckeditor? Perhaps $config could be replaced with $page.

      Some time ago I created a site profile for creation of a REST API with ProcessWire. Since I kept struggeling with updating stuff between different projects which use this, I decided to convert it into a module. It is now ready for testing: https://github.com/thomasaull/RestApi
      Additionally I added a few small features:
      automatic creation of JWT Secret at module install routes can be flagged as auth: false, which makes them publicly accessible even though JWT Auth is activated in module settings To check things out, download and install the module and check the folder /site/api for examples.
      If you find any bugs or can think of improvements, please let me know!

      Sites Manager
       
      16 September 2018:
      FOR NOW, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS MODULE IN A PRODUCTION SITE. A  RECENT ProcessWire UPDATE HAS BROKEN THE MODULE. I AM WORKING ON A FIX.
       
      ################
       
      Sites Manager is a module for ProcessWire that allows Superusers to easily create/install ProcessWire sites on the same serverspace the module is running in. Only Superusers can use the module. You can create both stand-alone and multi-sites.
       
      Single/Stand-alone Sites
      Stand-alone or single-sites are sites that will run in their own document root/directory with their own wire and site folders, .htaccess, index.php, etc. In other words, a normal ProcessWire site.
      Multiple Sites
      Multi-sites are sites that will run off one wire folder (shared amongst two or more sites) each having their own site folder and database. In this regard, it is important to note that Sites Manager is not in itself a multiple sites solution! Rather, it is a utility that helps you create multi-sites to be run using the ProcessWire core multiple sites feature. For more on this core feature, see the official ProcessWire documentation, specifically the solution referred to as Option #1.
      Option #1 approach requires the site admin to initially install ProcessWire in a temporary directory for each new site. The directory then needs to be renamed as site-xxx, where ‘xxx’ is any name you want to use to differentiate the installation from other sites, before it is moved to the webroot. For instance, site-mysite, site-another, site-whatever. In addition, the /wire/index.config.php file must be copied/moved to the webroot. Each time a site is added, the index.config.php has to be edited to add ‘domain’ => ‘site-directory’ key=>value pairs for the site. This process can become a bit tedious. This module aims to automate the whole multi-site site creation process.
      The module is based off the official ProcessWire installer. Creating a site is as simple as completing and submitting a single form! You also have the option to type and paste values or reuse a pre-defined install configuration.
       
      The module will:
      Install a ProcessWire site in your named directory, applying chmod values as specified
      Move the directory to your webroot
      Update/Create a Superuser account as per the submitted form, including setting the desired admin theme and colour
      For multi sites, update sites.json (used by index.config.php to get array of installed sites)
       
      For multi sites, the only difference in relation to the core multi-sites index.config.php is that this file is slightly different from the one that ships with ProcessWire.
      Download from GitHub: Sites Manager (Beta Release)
      Features
      Install unlimited number of sites in one (multi-sites) or independent (single-site) ProcessWire installs. Install by completing a Form, Typing or pasting in configurations or using pre-created install configurations. Choose an Admin Theme to auto-install along with the site installation. For single-sites installation, download, save and reuse ProcessWire versions of your choice. Install and maintain site profiles for reuse to create other sites. Create install configurations to speed up installation tasks. Client and server-side validation of site creation values. Edit uploaded profiles (e.g., replace profile file). Lock installed sites, configurations and profiles to prevent editing. Bulk delete items such as site profiles, installed site directories and/or databases (confirmation required for latter two). View important site details (admin login, chmod, etc). Links to installed sites home and admin pages. Timezones auto-complete/-suggest. Pre-requisites, Installation & Usage
      Please see the documentation.
      Technicalities/Issues
      Only Superusers can use the module.
      ProcessWire 2.7 - 3.x compatible
      Currently using ProcessWire 2.7 installer (install.php)
      For multi-sites, potential race condition when sites.json is being updated on a new site install vs. index.config.php accessing the json file?
      Not tested with sub-directory installs (for instance localhost/pw/my-site-here/)
      Currently not doing the extra/experimental database stuff (database charset and engine)
      Future Possibilities
      Install specified modules along with the ProcessWire install
      Profile previews?

      Breadcrumb Dropdowns
      Adds dropdown menus of page edit links to the breadcrumbs in Page Edit.

      Installation
      Install the Breadcrumb Dropdowns module. The module requires ProcessWire >= v3.0.83 and AdminThemeUikit.
      There is a checkbox option in the module config that determines if the breadcrumb dropdowns will include pages that the user does not have permission to edit.
      Features/details
      The module adds an additional breadcrumb item at the end for the currently edited page. That's because I think it's more intuitive for the dropdown under each breadcrumb item to show the item's sibling pages rather than the item's child pages. In the dropdown menus the current page and the current page's parents are highlighted in a crimson colour to make it easier to quickly locate them in case you want to edit the next or previous sibling page. Unpublished and hidden pages are indicated in the dropdowns with similar styling to that used in Page List. If the option to include uneditable pages is selected then those pages are indicated by italics with a reduced text opacity and the "not-allowed" cursor is shown on hover. There is a limit of 25 pages per dropdown for performance reasons and to avoid the dropdown becoming unwieldy. If the current user is allowed to add new pages under the parent page an "Add New" link is shown at the bottom of the breadcrumb dropdown. If the currently edited page has children or the user may add children, a caret at the end of the breadcrumbs reveals a dropdown of up to the first 25 children and/or an "Add New" link. Overriding the listed siblings for a page
      If you want to override the siblings that are listed in the dropdowns you can hook the BreadcrumbDropdowns::getSiblingsmethod and change the returned PageArray. For most use cases this won't be necessary.
      Incompatibilities
      This module replaces the AdminThemeUikit::renderBreadcrumbs method so will potentially be incompatible with other modules that hook the same method.

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support for 60€ per hour (excl vat).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

    • By Ken Muldrew
      I'm trying to get a short routine to run once per day that will look at some pages and send a reminder email when that customer's subscription (yearly) is about to expire. When I run the code in a template then it works without issue, but inside my lazycron service routine, I get an "Error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function get() on null" as if the database cannot be found. My autoload module is just the sample HelloWorld module included with ProcessWire, editted to perform this task. The whole of it is included below (I've stripped out the code that generates the email because it never gets past $pages->find):
       
      <?php namespace ProcessWire;
      /**
       * ProcessWire 'LazyCronLoad'  module
       *
       */
      class LazyCronLoad extends WireData implements Module {
          public static function getModuleInfo() {
              return array(
                  'title' => 'LazyCronLoad', 
                  'version' => 1, 
                  'summary' => 'Just loads a lazy cron callback.',
                  'singular' => true, 
                  'autoload' => true, 
                  );
          }
          public function init() {
              // initialize the hook in the AutoLoad module
              $this->addHook('LazyCron::everyDay', $this, 'myHook');
              
          }
          public function myHook(HookEvent $e) {
              // called once per day
              wire('log')->save('user_activities',' lazy cron service routine');
                  $transport_pages = $pages->find("template=aggregate-entry, aggregate_type.title='Transport'");
                  foreach ($transport_pages as $page) {
                      if (($page->purchase_date + 30325800 < time()) && ($page->purchase_date + 30412600 > time())) { // between 351 and 352 days
                          wire('log')->save('user_activities', $page->id . ' email reminder sent');
                          // send email
                  }
              }
          }        
          
      }
      The first wire('log') shows up but the second one doesn't (the purchase_date condition is met (as demonstrated by running the code in a template close in time to when the lazycron routine executes)). The error log gives the Uncaught Error shown above. 
      I think this is a beginner's mistake with something obvious being missed and would be grateful for any assistance in fixing it.
