Recurme – Processwire Recurring Dates Field & Custom Calendar Module.

Recommended Posts

Works also with UiKit calendar and Bootstrap calendar if you are using a framwork. If you are using UiKit calendar you can make fe a template which outputs all the calendar dates in a json array. Then you can load this template (or lets say the event dates) via ajax into the UiKit calendar template engine. Its very easy.

@Juergen Sorry if I miss something, but where do you find a calendar component at Uikit (https://getuikit.com/docs/introduction)?

Sorry, @totoff,

my fault. It mean the Fullcalendar. I use it with Uikit markup (badges,..) so I always call it "UiKit calendar". This was a mistake. Anyway, you can use it with recurme. Here you can find the Bootstrap calendar. Both are available on Jsdelivr CDN. So no need to include the files locally.

Best regards

I'm having an issue when trying to uninstall the Recurme module (v1.0.1) - after checking "Uninstall" and submitting I get a fatal error from PHP timeout (60 seconds).

The issue occurs when trying to uninstall from any of the Recurme sub-modules.

@Robin S Ok, I will do some test and see if I can reproduce this error and fix it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Sorry @totoff, but I have no example here at the moment, but Fullcalendar provides some render functions. I have used them to manipulate the output via Jquery. Fe adding Uikit classes to the buttons (uk-button) and so on. This was the way I have done some manipulations to the calendar. Take a look at this functions and use standard Jquery code to add classes, markup and so on. The calendar itself doesnt need to be manipulated, but as I have written above I have used UiKit markup at the buttons and I have used Uikit badges for the events in the calendar and Uikit tooltips after hovering a link . That was it.

Is it not possible to use recurme within an Repeater? In Repeater Matrix it works, so it is not a big problem, but for my purpose a repeater would suffice...

 

BTW great module and support, Joshua!

I have been working on regular repeater support, but it's not quite there. The current problem is that the event object is taking its data from the parent page, in the case of a repeater, it's the repeater page (not what we want). So I have to do a bit more work detecting if it's in a repeater and use getForPage() to populate the event object. A couple other little details. Getting close, but still not there. 

It's coming though!

I am having a complete failure to comprehend the way this field is structured, so while I can use the provided examples to render a list or calendar, from the individual pages I can't manage to access the individual date(s) in the field.

I sent this question to the help email address on Tuesday but haven't received an answer and I'd like to wrap up what seems like it should be a simple thing.

While working on the template for an event page, how do I specify the RecurMe dates from within that template using $page->xxx?

For instance I would normally echo a dateTime field like:

$datefield = $page->datefield;
$pubdate = strftime('j M Y', $datefield);
echo $pubdate; // outputs nothing

But since my recurme field, $page->eventsort, is an array(?), I figured I’d have to crack open the array first like so:

 

$eventsort = $page->eventsort;
foreach ($eventsort as $event) { //it loops through one $event because there is only a non-repeating day listed.
   $pubdate = $event->startDate;
   echo strftime('j M Y', $pubdate); // outputs nothing
}

I used startDate because when I once got the array to output, that was what was listed there. But this returns null. Same with start_date/date/any $event page fields listed in the faqs

I also tried :

$event = $page;
$newsdate = $recurme->event($event); //not sure this is any different than attempting to call $page->xxx?
$nd = $newsdate->start_date;
echo strftime('j M Y', $nd); // outputs "j M Y" on the page.

I've looked in the module files, and in the ready.php hook on page 1 of this thread to see how to take apart the field data, but nothing I've tried has worked.

So rather than continue chasing my tail, I thought I might as you for help with this as well. Thanks!

Hi creativeJay,

Sorry about the slow response. I was away from email yesterday. 

You are correct, It was returning NOTHING if you didn't toggle active. I have fixed it in the attached file. 

Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

Please download the fixed file here:
MarkupRecurme.module

Another reason we need to expand the ProcessWire store @ryan . All these modules spread across different sites - this one is even priced the same way as the official modules.

Is it possible to run a 'sort' selector on $recurme->find()?

When I attempt to sort by a particular field, only a single result is output. I can reverse the sort and it will output the opposite result so the sort works, but I get only one result.

The find method needs to have a startDate and endDate to find results, then a selector. The results will always be sorted by date. Any other sort option will be ignored. If you use ->find() with out those dates, it will only return the recurme events for today  

$recurme->find($dateFrom, $dateTo, $selector)

$recurme->find($dateFrom, $dateTo, $selector)

Thanks, makes complete sense. The issue I had was with a particular date outputting as AM when it was actually saved as PM so appearing before all other results.

The module is fantastic, but I'm having a consistent issue where if I enter and save a recurme field in a page it displays fine, but when I go back to edit another field on the page and save, it will begin outputting the time as AM when it was selected as PM. Going back in and altering the date fixes this until I alter another field again.

@joshuag, you say in the email: 

Quote

I have not updated the version number or released the changelog as this is in response to a couple messages on the processwire forum

I think it would be good if you do bump the version number each time you make a release even if it is for bug fixes. Otherwise it isn't clear from the PW modules listing whether that installation has been updated to the latest version, so it's harder to keep track if you have multiple sites running Recurme.

Also, it will be easier for you in terms of support if you can ask what the installed version number is and know from that what release of Recurme the user has installed.

Hi @joshuag, unfortunately this update does not resolve the problem I am having with uninstallation. When I do the following steps... 

  1. Remove the existing module files
  2. Add the updated module files
  3. Do a modules "Refresh"
  4. Clear compiled files

...I still get the PHP timeout when I try and uninstall, regardless of which sub-module I try and uninstall from. Sometimes timeouts like this are caused by a circular reference in the code. I'm wondering about the fact that each sub-module installs and uninstalls all the others. That seems non-standard to me: normally where there are multiple sub-modules there is one "main" module file that installs/uninstalls the others. The other modules only require the main module but do not install/uninstall them. See FieldtypeRepeater for example. Could there be some circularity where FieldtypeRecurme tries to uninstall ProcessRecurme, which tries to uninstall FieldtypeRecurme, which tries to... and so on?

Hi guys, 

I am trying to solve this problem. I cannot reproduce the error. Making it a bit hard to debug.  I tried removing the circular reference to what modules each file installs. Made no difference to me. 

@Robin S any other ideas?

Working on the detail page now and having a problem getting the date/time of the event to show on the page. If my page array contains this:

[calev_datetime] => {"startDate":1504821600,"endDate":false,"dates":["W36/07/Thu/Sep/2017",...,"W19/07/Wed/May/2025"],"excluded":[],"active":false,"showResults":false,"rrule":"WKST=MO;FREQ=DAILY;DTSTART=20170907T150000Z;INTERVAL=1"}

How can I get the date to output to the page like: 09/07/2017 3:00 pm? I've tried various bits and pieces to get at the startDate or the DTSTART, but always end up with a nothing on screen (in that area).

      Needed a really simple solution to embed audio files within page content and couldn't find a module for that, so here we go. Textformatter Audio Embed works a bit like Textformatter Video Embed, converting this:
      <p>https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3</p> Into this:
      <audio controls class="TextformatterAudioEmbed"> <source src="https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg"> </audio> The audio element has pretty good browser support, so quite often this should be enough to get things rolling 🙂

      Hi all, I am going round and round in circles and would greatly appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.
      I am sure I am doing something dumb, or missing something I should know, but don't. Story of my life 😉

      Playing round with a module and my basic problem is I want to upload an image and also use InputfieldMarkup and other Inputfields.
      Going back and forth between trying an api generated page defining Fieldgroup, Template, Fields, Page and the InputfieldWrapper method.

      InputfieldWrapper method works great for all the markup stuff, but I just can't wrap my head around what I need to do to save the image to the database.
      Can generate a Field for it (thanks to the api investigations) but not sure what I need to do to link the Inputfield to that. Tried a lot of stuff from various threads, of varying dates without luck.
      Undoubtedly not helped by me not knowing enough.

      Defining Fieldgroup etc through the api seems nice and clean and works great for the images but I can't wrap my head around how/if I can add/append/hook the InputfieldWrapper/InputfieldMarkup stuff I'd like to include on that template as well. Not even sure if it should be where it is on ___install with the Fieldtype stuff or later on . Not getting Tracy errors, just nothing seems to happen.
      If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, that would be great because at the moment I am stumbling round in the dark.

      Since it's featured in ProcessWire Weekly #310, now is the time to make it official:
      Here is Twack!
      I really like the following introduction from ProcessWire Weekly, so I hope it is ok if I use it here, too. Look at the project's README for more details!
      Twack is a new — or rather newish — third party module for ProcessWire that provides support for reusable components in an Angular-inspired way. Twack is implemented as an installable module, and a collection of helper and base classes. Key concepts introduced by this module are:
      Components, which have separate views and controllers. Views are simple PHP files that handle the output for the component, whereas controllers extend the TwackComponent base class and provide additional data handling capabilities. Services, which are singletons that provide a shared service where components can request data. The README for Twack uses a NewsService, which returns data related to news items, as an example of a service. Twack components are designed for reusability and encapsulating a set of features for easy maintainability, can handle hierarchical or recursive use (child components), and are simple to integrate with an existing site — even when said site wasn't originally developed with Twack.
      A very basic Twack component view could look something like this:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; ?> <h1>Hello World!</h1> And here's how you could render it via the API:
      <?php namespace Processwire; $twack = $modules->get('Twack'); $hello = $twack->getNewComponent('HelloWorld'); ?> <html> <head> <title>Hello World</title> </head> <body> <?= $hello->render() ?> </body> </html> Now, just to add a bit more context, here's a simple component controller:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; class HelloWorld extends TwackComponent { public function __construct($args) { parent::__construct($args); $this->title = 'Hello World!'; if(isset($args['title'])) { $this->title = $args['title']; } } } As you can see, there's not a whole lot new stuff to learn here if you'd like to give Twack a try in one of your projects. The Twack README provides a really informative and easy to follow introduction to all the key concepts (as well as some additional examples) so be sure to check that out before getting started. 
      Twack is in development for several years and I use it for every new project I build. Also integrated is an easy to handle workflow to make outputs as JSON, so it can be used to build responses for a REST-api as well. I will work that out in one section in the readme as well. 
      If you want to see the module in an actual project, I have published the code of www.musical-fabrik.de in a repository. It runs completely with Twack and has an app-endpoint with ajax-output as well.
      I really look forward to hear, what you think of Twack🥳!

      Page Reference Default Value
      Most ProcessWire core inputfield types that can be used with a Page Reference field support a "Default value" setting. This module extends support for default values to the following core inputfield types:
      Page List Select Page List Select Multiple Page Autocomplete (single and multiple) Seeing as these inputfield types only support the selection of pages a Page List Select / Page List Select Multiple is used for defining the default value instead of the Text / Textarea field used by the core for other inputfield types. This makes defining a default value a bit more user-friendly.
      Note that as per the core "Default value" setting, the Page Reference field must be set to "required" in order for the default value to be used.
