Push file to download after AJAX post

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

On the website I am working on I do have a form which needs to be filled in (duh) and when the user clicks on download, the data is send with ajax and processed in the same file by using the ProcessWire API with $config->ajax;

The data which is provided by the user will be checked with data in my database. If the data is correct I want to push a file download. But this is not working at the moment. It seems like the content of the (.exe) file is pasted in the console instead of pushing the file. My code looks like this:

if ($config->ajax){  
    $serial = $input->post('serial');
    $DB = DB();
    $query = $DB->prepare("/*My query here*/");
    $query->bindParam("comparision", $serial, PDO::PARAM_STR);
    $query->execute();

    $reply = '';

    $SN_rows = $query->rowCount();
    if (!$SN_rows > 0) {
        $reply = 'error';
    } else {
        $reply = 'success';
    $installer = $page->attachments->eq(1);
    $filename = "Filename";
    $filepath = $installer->filename;

    $options = array(
        'forceDownload' => true,
        'exit' => true,
        'downloadFilename' => $filename
    );

    wireSendFile($filepath, $options);
    }

    echo $reply;
    exit();
}

What am I doing wrong here or is it a bug? Is there another way to do this with the processwire API?

 

Thanks in advance,

@Robin S, thanks for the links. I fixed or cheated it in a bit different way. In the success function of the AJAX Post, I check for the reply if it is success or not. If it is equal to success I redirect to the same page with a query behind the normal URL. In the file I check if the query is in the URL and if so I push the file as a download. The only thing insecure to this method is that if you know the query you can still get the file without a serialnumber. Anyway, it works for the time being, hopefully this helps someone else

      Short description of the issue
      Since PW 3.0.88: When I try to retrive a croped file using the api filesManager() and it's basename, I get the original version instead of the croped variation.
      Expected behaviour
      Looking up a variation using the path and filesManager should return the variation file.
       $page->filesManager->getFile("/path/to/filebasename.400x400.jpg"); // $file->basename > filebasename.400x400.jpg Actual behavior
      The variation is returned.
       $page->filesManager->getFile("/path/to/filebasename.400x400.jpg"); // $file->basename > filebasename.jpg  
      » Is this a bug or do I miss something here?
       
      Code:
      dump($page->filesManager->path.$input->get->filename('f')); $file = $page->filesManager->getFile($page->filesManager->path.$input->get->filename('f')); dump($file); dump($page->filesManager->path.$file->basename); Output:

      Hi all,
      Im a bit confused by an issue I have come across today.
      I have a module which connects to a third party (once an hour using LazyCron), parses a publicly available XML file, turns it into useable information which I then use the API to save as PW Pages.
      On the whole this has been working great however today I noticed that it kept failing on one of the imports.
      After doing some investigation I realised its appears to be dying at the save page stage.
      From the documentation $page-save() should return either True/False, so I thought I would update the code to reflect this while debugging.
      $this->log(1); $bool = $p->save(); if($bool){ $this->log('Saved successfully'); } else { $this->log('Fail to save'); } $this->log(2); However the script only gets to the save() part and then appears to terminate. Then when checking the error log the latest entry is always just '1'
      Any ideas as i'm a tad confused why I at least don't get a response of some kind?

      Hello, 
      for an Project i need help for an Script. 
      There is an XML File with all the Objects Data and Images for every object. 

      This is the Data Structure 
      http://prntscr.com/hvfo31


      One XML file and Pictures. 
      So every Time the new Data is Uploadet via ImmoTool there have to be maybe an batch or something or an button in the Sitebackend to check the new files. 

      If the Status is  NEW then create an Object 
      if the Status is CHANGE  then make some changes 
      If the Status is Delete then remove the Object in other Parent 

      There are Basic infos in XML like Description Rooms etc. 
      Also the latitude and attitude for the maps. 
      After succsessful changes the Folder schould be empty for the next upload. 

      I need only help to create and handle the sites with some data (PW API ). The output I will generate by myself. 


      I have some basic php code 

      Need somebody to fix it ready for me in PW. 

      Tnx

      I recently started to build Vue SPAs with ProcessWire as the backend, connected with a REST API. Thanks to code and the help of @LostKobrakai (How to use FastRoute with ProcessWire) and @clsource (REST-Helper) I got it up and running pretty quickly and now have put all of it in a site profile for others to use. It includes the REST API with routing for different endpoints, JWT Auth and a simple Vue SPA which shows the process of logging in a user (nevertheless, you don't have to use the Vue part, the API will work on it's own).
      Check it out here: https://github.com/thomasaull/RestApiProfile
      I'm pretty sure, it's not the perfect or most sophisticsted solution, but it gets the job done for me…
      Feedback or Improvements are very welcome

      PulsewayPush
      Send "push" from ProcessWire to Pulseway.
       
      Description
      PulsewayPush simply send a push to a Pulseway instance. If you are using this module, you probably installed Pulseway on your mobile device: you will receive notification on your mobile.
      To get more information about Pulseway, please visit their website.
      Note
      They have a free plan which include 10 notifications (push) each day.
       
      Usage
      Install the PulsewayPush module.
      Then call the module where you like in your module/template code :
      <?php $modules->get("PulsewayPush")->push("The title", "The notification message.", "elevated"); ?>  
      Hookable function
      ___push() ___notify() (the two function do the same thing)
       
      Download
      Github:  https://github.com/flydev-fr/PulsewayPush Modules Directory: https://modules.processwire.com/modules/pulseway-push/  
      Examples of use case
      I needed for our work a system which send notification to mobile device in case of a client request immediate support. Pulseway was choosen because it is already used to monitor our infrastructure.
      An idea, you could use the free plan to monitor your blog or website regarding the number of failed logins attempts (hooking Login/Register?), the automated tool then block the attacker's IP with firewall rules and send you a notification.

      2017-11-22: added the module to the modules directory
