Recurme – Processwire Recurring Dates Field & Custom Calendar Module.

Recommended Posts

The fix seems to be to set all events as recurring, and use a count of one for events that don't actually recur.

@joshuag

Got some notices when installing that you might like to fix:

Also, and much more importantly, on the UiKit theme, there are some big CSS issues:

image.png.bf6766c51bdd1181bcf8b62de0f77984.png

 

Also, I don't understand why the start date includes the time when "All Day" is checked. Maybe I am missing something, but I think that makes it quite a confusing UI. Is there a way around this?

Another issue I am having is how to define an end date/time if it's not a recurring event. I was hoping I wouldn't need separate fields for recurring and non-recurring events. Do I?

Thanks!

I'm trying to pass options to both renderEvent() and renderList(), but the functions aren't picking up my settings.
Here's code from my list display page:
 

$siteEvents = $pages->find("template=meetingevent, sort=meeting-event-date-recurring");

$options = array(
'selector'			=> '',
'monthFormat'		=> 'F',
'dateField'			=> 'recurme',
'renderEvent' 		=> array(
	'dateFormat' 	=> 'M d, Y @ g:i a',
	'timeFormat' 	=> 'g:i a',
	'dayFormat'		=> 'd',
	'monthFormat'	=> 'M',
	'yearFormat'	=> 'Y',
	'hourFormat'	=> 'g',
	'minuteFormat'	=> 'i',
	'secondFormat'	=> 's',
	'ampmFormat'	=> 'a',
	'xBefore' 		=> '<li class="rm-list-event {original.name}">ASDF<span class="rm-event-date">{time}</span> ',
	'xItem'			=> '<a href="{link}" title="{title}">',
	'xAfter'		=> 'STRING {title}</a></li>'
),
'renderDay'			=> array(
	'xBefore'		=> '<ol class="rm-list-day {todayClass} rm-{dayName}"><li><h3>',
	'xItem'			=> '<span class="rm-date-day">{day}</span><span class="rm-date-month">{month}</span><span class="rm-date-year">{year}</span></h3>',
	'xListBefore'	=> '<ol class="rm-list-events">',
	'xListAfter'	=> '</ol><!-- close list-events -->',
	'xAfter'		=> '</li></ol><!-- close day -->'
),
'renderMonth'		=> array(
	'xBefore'		=> '<ul class="rm-list-month rm-{month}"><li>',
	'xItem'			=> '<h2>{month}</h2>',
	'xAfter'		=> '</li></ul><!-- close month -->'
),
'cache'				=> true,
'cacheName'			=> '',
'noEvents'			=> '<p>No events to show!</p>',
);

$content .= $recurme->renderList($siteEvents, $options);

Events.png.5c55137a87cef596121185bd64141a91.png
Output looks like the attached screen shot.
Note that I'm not seeing any of my customization (I changed the UL to OL and added some strings, to test). 
I'm also not seeing Dates displayed.
Clearly I've missed something here - any help appreciated.

If I understand correctly you have to get the events from $recurme->find() or equivalent.

Actually i completely worked around this, pulling apart the object returned by $recurme->event() and formatting the whole setup myself.
But next time...
Anyway thanks for the tip.

Hi guys, sorry for the delay in replying.

I am going over the following details from this thread and will post an update ASAP:

  • Install issues - blank file path, notices.
  • UIKIT theme CSS conflicts.
  • returning data on non-recurring events
  • all day toggle 
  • render methods and output overrides. 

As soon as I have an update, I will post it here to the forum.

@joshuag Early on in the thread you mentioned a work-in-progress fix for the 2800 event limit, and also about a more elegant update feature when adding exclusions. Any update on this? I've scanned the posts in the rest of the thread but might have missed it. Have these issues been addressed in the current version?

Hi Netcarver, 

Currently, I am still unable to break that limit or 2800 repeats of an event. Even so, that is a long time:

Example Recurring Time:

Daily = approx. 7.5 years
Weekly = approx. 53.5 years
Monthly = approx. 233 years
Yearly = approx. 2800 years

I am working on a copy of recurme with a revised interface but it is nowhere near complete. The current exclusion works ok for 99% of the use cases. Although I do agree that it could be GREATLY improved. I would like to focus on fixing the more pressing bugs before releasing any huge changes to the interface.

Thanks for the getting to these issues @joshuag

1) It looks like the UiKit theme issues are fixed

2) I can't seem to save a non all day event. I uncheck "all day" and enter a start and end time, but when I save the page, the "all day" is checked and the end time isn't saved.

3) The results seem to be off by a day - note 15/16 vs 14/15 in the results.

Hmmm. That is very strange that you can’t save. Do you have any js errors?

also, have you set your timezone in the config? 

Looking to see if I can Reproduce this. 

Thanks a lot!

Looks like it's ok now - I changed the date to something else, then saved and now it's working. Not sure if it was some change tracking issue or what. I did try several times before, but seems ok now - I'll keep an eye on it and let you know.

Let me know if you have troubles reproducing the results table issue.

Also, would you consider changing the behavior of the code icon - I see that it's a tooltip for the RRule, but it might be nice if there was no target, because I thought it was clickable and the # target directs me to the top of the page and makes me think the link is broken. I actually think it might be nice if clicking it showed the RRule below, like the results table shows.

This question is not really specific to this module, but I am wondering if there is a standard way to handle multiday events that have different start/end times on different days, like a concert or conference. I am guessing these just need to be single separate events, otherwise it's not really a recurring event?

@adrian yes, I could change the rrule. Good idea. 

Thank you for testing this and the detailed feedback. I’m trying to track down why it’s not saving your start time or this would be happening. I’ll post a fix as soon as I can reproduce it and figure it out :) 

As for multi-day events, you are correct, they can repeat on those days, or be separate events. Currently I have no means to span days with events.

Looks like there is no timeStart in the POST data:

image.thumb.png.6bf87473168e8ed53dfc69e95d1039cd.png

{"startDate":1518699600,"endDate":1518854340,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"03:00 pm","dates":["W7/14/Wed/Feb/2018","W7/15/Thu/Feb/2018"],"excluded":[],"active":false,"showResults":true,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20180215T050000Z;INTERVAL=1;UNTIL=20180216T235900Z"}

There is no timeStart in the data since I am saving the date+timeStart as a Unix timestamp.

It looks like the timestamp is not being updated, because that timestamp is showing 5am in the POST data after saving.

      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?
      Credits

      @abdus: for the index.config.php reading from JSON idea
      @swampmusic: for the challenge
      Video Demo
      Demo  showing how quick module works on a remote server [YMMV!]. Video shows downloading and processing two versions of ProcessWire (~takes 7 seconds) and installing a single/stand-alone ProcessWire 3 site using the new Admin Theme UI Kit (~2 seconds) on a remote server.

      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.

      Contribute:
      You can contribute to the development of this and other modules or just say thank you by
      testing, reporting issues and making PRs at gitlab liking this post buying me a drink: paypal.me/baumrock/5 liking my facebook page: facebook.com/baumrock hiring me for pw work: baumrock.com  
      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.
