Thanks @joshuag - just curious - did you also take a look at the rrule code icon idea I brought up?

I did not modify it. I didn't even think of it, but it's a good idea. I'll do a quick update on that. Thanks!

Thanks for the update @joshuag, great to see Recurme continue being updated. 

I haven't had opportunity to update my current installs yet, but have a new project Recurme would be ideal for.

I could not find a way to get the value of the "all day" checkbox and found out that its state is hard-coded (checked) in InputfieldRecurme.module. I need to differentiate between "all day" and "normal" events and output them differently on a clients website. Could you please implement something like a $event->allDay property?

Thanks!

Hey @joshuag, thanks for the update! The toggle fix did not solve my problem (quoted above) because you still do not store the value of the checkbox/toggle. Could you please implement something like an $event->allDay property with a simple binary value? 

Thank you in advance!

$event->allDay should be giving you the value of $allDay in the event object true/false. This is also implemented in the json stored in the field.

Fresh install of PW 3.0.62, I'm getting this error when installing the latest version of Recurme:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262144 bytes) in /var/sites/t/X/public_html/wire/core/Modules.php on line 3921

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 262144 bytes) in Unknown on line 0

Never seen this before and I'm a bit stumped... Any ideas?

Edit: Increased memory limit with ini_set on the module to see where this goes and got a 30s execution time error. Can't figure this one out, there must be a loop somewhere as increasing that came back to a 800MB memory limit!

Edit 2: Solved! I'll send you an e-mail with details.

Hey @joshuag - not sure if I am just missing it, but is there a method for adding new dates via the API? I have a LOT of events to import. Or, do I have to manually build up the JSON eg:

{"startDate":1518778800,"endDate":1518940740,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"12:00 pm","dates":["W7/16/Fri/Feb/2018","W7/17/Sat/Feb/2018"],"excluded":[],"active":true,"showResults":true,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20180216T030000Z;INTERVAL=1;UNTIL=20180217T235900Z"}

and populate with $page->event->date = $jsonStr;

Thanks!

I don’t have a method to add dates via the api, but that is a good idea.

If you do add dates by populating the json manually, I could see some complications arising depending on how you have chosen the repeat pattern in the Recurme Field. Because the dates are generated based on the rrule via JavaScript. 

I will give this some thought and see how we could make this a no-brainer. 

Thanks for the great idea.

Thanks for looking into this - right now I am going to have to either build up the JSON, or wait for you to implement an API method. I think the API method is essential because I am sure others will also need to import dates from existing sites. 

I'd appreciate knowing whether you might have time to implement this relatively quickly, or if you think it might take some time to get to - not pressuring, just needing to know if I need to take the JSON approach to meet my deadlines. Thanks for your time!

Thanks, it worked for events I received through $recurme->find.

I could not find a way to access the allDay value from an event page.

$allDay = $recurme->event($page->id)->allDay;

Could you please point me in the right direction on how to access the allDay property for one single event?

Thank you!

Hey @joshuag - I am quite confused about calling dates via the API.

From the docs it looks like I should do:

$recurme->event($page)->start_date;

but what if I have more than one recurme field on the page?

I am tempted to parse it myself like this:

json_decode($page->event_dates)->startDate;

because this way I can get the start date from my selected "event_dates" field.

However I am sure I am missing something in how this is meant to be used :)

Any tips please?

@joshuag - I am also confused about the output of endDate - it's always a day after the specified end date - is this for some reason intentional? It seems confusing to me.

Note that importing using the script you PM'd me is also problematic with this "bug" - if you provide an end date, the end date shown in the field edit dialog is one day before the end, but when you output it via the API it returns the end date I specified on import, so it's quite confusing to the editor.

Even more confusion. Take these examples - why does the value of enddate vary depending on how I get it?

Ok, more details:If I import a date, the json initially looks like this:

{"startDate":1520956800,"endDate":1522440000,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"02:00 pm","dates":["W11/13/Tue/Mar/2018","W11/14/Wed/Mar/2018","W11/15/Thu/Mar/2018","W11/16/Fri/Mar/2018","W11/17/Sat/Mar/2018","W11/18/Sun/Mar/2018","W12/19/Mon/Mar/2018","W12/20/Tue/Mar/2018","W12/21/Wed/Mar/2018","W12/22/Thu/Mar/2018","W12/23/Fri/Mar/2018","W12/24/Sat/Mar/2018","W12/25/Sun/Mar/2018","W13/26/Mon/Mar/2018","W13/27/Tue/Mar/2018","W13/28/Wed/Mar/2018","W13/29/Thu/Mar/2018","W13/30/Fri/Mar/2018"],"excluded":[],"active":true,"showResults":false,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20180313T100000Z;INTERVAL=1;UNTIL=20180330T140000Z"}

Then if I open the page in the admin and save the page (without changing anything), it then looks like this:

{"startDate":1520960400,"endDate":1522479540,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"02:00 pm","dates":["W11/13/Tue/Mar/2018","W11/14/Wed/Mar/2018","W11/15/Thu/Mar/2018","W11/16/Fri/Mar/2018","W11/17/Sat/Mar/2018","W11/18/Sun/Mar/2018","W12/19/Mon/Mar/2018","W12/20/Tue/Mar/2018","W12/21/Wed/Mar/2018","W12/22/Thu/Mar/2018","W12/23/Fri/Mar/2018","W12/24/Sat/Mar/2018","W12/25/Sun/Mar/2018","W13/26/Mon/Mar/2018","W13/27/Tue/Mar/2018","W13/28/Wed/Mar/2018","W13/29/Thu/Mar/2018"],"excluded":[],"active":true,"showResults":false,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20180313T100000Z;INTERVAL=1;UNTIL=20180330T140000Z"}

Notice the change in the startDate and endDate stamps as well as the fact that "W13/30/Fri/Mar/2018" is removed after saving.

Help :)

Sorry, me again :)

When I create a new event through the admin and it's a non-recurring event, it doesn't store the enddate:

{"startDate":1522971420,"endDate":false,"allDay":false,"timeEnd":"08:00 pm"

But you have no API method for getting the end time directly in your API calls (at least not that I can see) - what am I missing?

I am not sure that multiple recurme fields in a single page would work as expected. Parsing the Json would work well.

endDate will always be startDate -> till END OF THE CURRENT DAY from the interface if you have a timeEnd (11:59 from your example). endDate always represents the UNIX TIMESTAMP of the day/hour/min in seconds of the END TIME of the event. If you want a date for the events to stop if it is repeating, then it refers the the UNTIL value part of the RRULE UNTIL value. The until value tells recurme to expand the repeating dates up to the UNTIL date. I can see how this is confusing. I might rename these variables now that you have brought it to my attention.

I doubt it's a common scenario, but I have never seen a PW fieldtype work this way - normally you just call $page->fieldname so it's weird to get used to parsing an entire page to $recurme.

Looking at this all again now. I am working with manually created events (so there aren't any complications with API import) and I am still confused.

This is what I set up:

image.thumb.png.193df0834b9bf4c0fcf0eab290681280.png

 

$recurme->renderEvent($page, array('dateFormat' => 'M d, Y @ g:i a'));

results in: Error: Trying to get property of non-object on line: 682 of MarkupRecurme.module

If I do:

image.png.48d9ed3b2ca9ede323d68ad38480a5be.png

you can see that the "time" is off by an hour - probably a timezone issue, but how can I manually output something like:

March 13th - March 30th, 2018
10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This sort of output I am sure is quite common.

The problem is that end_date: 1522562399 is 2018-03-31 11:59 but the event only goes until the 30th. So how do I get the 30th - do I have to parse UNTIL from rrule, or can do take end_date and subtract one day - what is the reliable way to get the actual end date?

Sorry if I am being stupid - I can't believe I am the only person to come across these issues, but I don't think I am missing anything - I think the module just needs more properties with things like actual start date, start time, end date and end time so we can easily output custom formats.

Let me know if you want to spend a little time on a live chat/call about this.

Thanks!

Hey @joshuag - firstly I wanted to send some kudos your way - I feel like I've been complaining lots in my last few posts :) I have been playing around with RenderList, RenderEvent, RenderCalendar etc, and the backend Calendar views and they really are awesome - thanks for all the hard work!

I do have a request though - I have been looking at the rrule in the json and wondering if you'd consider adding a helper to parse the rule into plain english. I'd love to be able to output this: 

WKST=MO;FREQ=MONTHLY;DTSTART=20180402T100000Z;INTERVAL=1;BYDAY=TU;BYSETPOS=2;UNTIL=20180428T235900Z

as: 

Every second Tuesday from 10 am to 2 pm from April 2nd, 2018 till April 28th, 2018

Do you have any thoughts on this? Is there already an inbuilt method that I missed that would help with this?

Thanks again!

change the timeFormat option instead,

or

change the xBefore template to use {date} instead of {time}.
 

'xBefore' => '<li class="rm-list-event {original.name}"><span class="rm-event-date">{time}</span> ',

yeah, this looks like a timezone issue. I am digging into it. thanks for bringing it up. Subtracting one day won't work or be consistent.

      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!
    • By kongondo
      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)

      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:

      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.
