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. 

Hi Joshua,

Any further news on this - sorry to bug you, but deadlines are looming and I need to know if I'll need to start parsing the the UNTIL value to get the end date or if you'll manage to provide a simpler option for getting a correct end date.

Thanks for your time!

Adrian, 

I have added an extra variable to recurme to give you the timeEnd as a unix timestamp so you can format it however you want. 

$event->timeEndUnix;

Here is an example that outputs the exact information you want:

<?php
	$p = $pages->get(1120);
	$event = $recurme->event($p);
	echo date('M d - ',   $event->start_date);
	echo date('M d',      $event->end_date)."<br />";
	echo date('g:i a - ', $event->start_date);
	echo date('g:i a',    $event->timeEndUnix);
	
	// outputs
	// Mar 14 - Feb 16
	// 9:03 am - 9:02 am
?>

IMPORTANT: We need to re-save an event to add the value of timeEndUnix to the json data.

I know this is not ideal, however it was the best compromise until I make date saving & conversions better all around.

I have also adjusted the 'timeEnd' value to be effected by the 'timeFormat' option if you prefer to use that instead, however, this will only work if your saved data for the event has timeEndUnix Value. 

You had mentioned that you have a lot of events, in order to take advantage of the new timeEndUnix variable, you will have to save your events again. Send me a PM and we can work out a way to do it with the API and add the timeEndUnix value to your JSON data for your existing events. 

Please try these (attached) files and let me know if you find any problems. 

Hope this helps,

Hi @joshuag

I am working on the same project with Adrian using your Recurme module.

I've used the updated files you provided. rrule-gui.js and MarkupRecurme.module.

 

Using the $event->timeEndUnix; that you have added is working for New and Imported events.

However, both New and Imported events have an issue when changing the Date (non repeating events) and displaying the $event->timeEndUnix.

On first save, the $event->timeEndUnix continues to display the old end date.

But if I go into the event a second time,  and save once again (with no changes), the $event->timeEndUnix is updated correctly.

OK, thanks for testing this. I will give it a look and upload a new file. :)

@GhostRider @adrian Attaching new files for timeEndUnix. Please let me know if you find anything strange. 

Ps. Also added a fix for missing dates/events if they were set to not repeat. This will all be rolled into the next update as well. thanks for your help.

Hi folks,

is there any chance to set the date/time - format to german?

e.g. 1:45pm should be shown as 13:45Uhr.
May should bei shown as Mai a.s.o.
is this possible to achive this over the array "renderEvent=>dateFormat"? I've played with it, but without any positive result....

Many Thanks!

Hi,

...run into another topic and didn´t found anything about it in the docu.

My Site-structur is as follows:
- events
    - Course1
    - Course2
    a.s.o.
every course ( template=event ) has its own recurme field for events-dates. so far so good.
on every specific course-site i want to show a calendar only with the dates of this specific course.

For this i run into an issue and one question:
Issue:
The course-link looks like this: mysite/events/course1.
If i klick on the calendar, to step one month further, it will end up with an empty calendar.
The reason is, that the link, provided from the calenders arrows, look like this: mysite/events/?c=1&m=06&y=2018
The part course1 is missing before ?c=1&m=06&y=2018.
Therefore the link has to be mysite/events/course1?c=1&m=06&y=2018

Question:
Is it possible to show a calender ( $recume->renderCalendar ) only with the events from a specific course ( selector could be id=$page->id ) ?
In my case:
- Calendar with date of course1 on site course1
- Calendar with date of course2 on site course2

Thanks a bunch!

@itsberni

For the issue, 

What I've done to solve this is that I basically build a button separate from the calendar and build the url accordingly. Will get back with code details later, just in a bit of a hurry now. 

For the question, 

Doesn't passing a selector in the renderCalendar options let you filter the events you need? So that you could could use p=1 in the query parameters?

Could be - but i don´t know, where to put the selector. do you have any code example?

The calendar grabs the current URL the appends the get variables. The calendar should page through months via ajax.

Ajax is not working.

Please make sure that your site contains a hidden page home/recurme-ajax/ using the template "recurme-ajax" and that you have a matching file in your site/templates/ folder. IF for some reason this file is missing, you can copy the template file from the InputfieldRecur/templates/recurme-ajax.php.

 Hope this helps,

@joshuag - not sure if this is a bug or just an inconsistency, but when setting up a recurring date if you specify the start date before the first day that the rrule settings allow, the calendar will show an entry for that start date, but the results in the admin won't show it.

image.thumb.png.168ce7758e992ef4dd81ee8899ff675a.png

See the entry on the 5th - should that be there?

I guess this is a feature request, or maybe I am missing an option, but at the moment I can do:

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

to get the event for the current page, but if I want to render the calendar with just this event, I can't simply do:

echo $recurme->renderCalendar($event, $options)

Instead, I have to do:

$options = array(
    'month' => date('m', $event->start_date),
    'year' => date('Y', $event->start_date),
    'selector' => 'id='.$page->id,
    'cache' => false,
    'mini' => true
);
echo $recurme->renderCalendar($options);

using "selector" to get the events for this page.

Or is there a better way?

You are correct. Currently your example is the only way to do it, but this is a good idea. I will look at how I can add just passing a $page or $pages to the calendar to render a calendar. Shouldn't be that hard and it would be a nice shortcut.

Also, with that same setup:

image.png.eb2df679c79214ec6afcb8383f5afb9d.png

it seems there is no way to get the start time via the API because the $event object looks like this. If I try to get the time from the start_date it returns midnight which makes sense, but why is there no timeStart and/or timeStartUnix?

image.thumb.png.a354b37f6bea48427aa232428cad5408.png

Just to follow up, it looks like the only way I can actually the start date (timestamp) is with this:

json_decode($page->event_dates)->startDate

Is that the only way when it's not a recurring event?

Sorry, me again.

If you have a non-recurring event and don't specify an end time, both timeEnd and timeEndUnix are populated with midnight. This isn't very helpful when you are trying to format an event and deciding if you need:

9:00 am - 2pm
VS
9:00 am

Again, it looks like I need to parse the json to see if the end time is actually set or not.

Let me know if that doesn't make sense?

Thanks again!

I am ending up with something like this:

$event = $recurme->event($page);
$startDate = json_decode($page->event_dates)->startDate
echo date('F jS Y', $startDate);
if(!$event->allDay) {
    echo date('g:i a', $startDate);
    if(json_decode($page->event_dates)->timeEnd != '') {
        echo ' - ' . date('g:i a', $event->timeEndUnix);
    }
}

@joshuag - I wanted to point out that the module is generating an invalid RRULE. The RRULE should not include DTSTART, but it should be separate.

Instead of this:

WKST=MO;FREQ=WEEKLY;DTSTART=20180611T093000Z;INTERVAL=1;BYDAY=MO;UNTIL=20180831T235900Z

it should be:

DTSTART:20180611T093000Z
RRULE:FREQ=WEEKLY;UNTIL=20180831T235900Z;BYDAY=MO

The spec also has a separate DTEND which might be worth including.

Thanks for looking into fixing this!

PS - Have you considered making use of either:
https://github.com/rlanvin/php-rrule or https://github.com/simshaun/recurr to do some of the heavy lifting for you?

Just out of interest, I am using php-rrule to present the RRULE as a human readable phrase. The recurr library also offers this, but doesn't seem to be as good yet.

Not sure if this is expected or not, but after doing a $recurme->find() and iterating through the returned pages I get this error because there is an image field on the event page.

Error: Exception: New page '//' must be saved before files can be accessed from it

The "fix" is to do $event->original so I am getting the original page object but this seems like it should not be unnecessary.

Any thoughts or am I doing something wrong?

      SnipWire - Snipcart integration for ProcessWire
      Snipcart is a powerful, developer-first 3rd party HTML/JavaScript shopping cart platform. SnipWire is the missing link between Snipcart and the content management framework ProcessWire.
      With SnipWire, you can quickly turn any ProcessWire site into a Snipcart online shop. The SnipWire plugin helps you to get your store up and running in no time. Detailed knowledge of the Snipcart system is not required.
      SnipWire is free and open source! A lot of work and effort has gone into development. It would be nice if you could donate an amount to support further development:

      Status update links (inside this thread) for SnipWire development:
      2020-01-19 --> integrated taxes provider finished (+ very flexible shipping taxes handling) 2020-01-14 --> new date range picker, discount editor, order notifiactions, order statuses, and more ... 2019-11-15 --> orders filter, order details, download + resend invoices, refunds 2019-10-18 --> list filters, REST API improvements, new docs platform, and more ... 2019-08-08 --> dashboard interface, currency selector, managing Orders, Customers and Products, Added a WireTabs, refinded caching behavior 2019-06-15 --> taxes provider, shop templates update, multiCURL implementation, and more ... 2019-06-02 --> FieldtypeSnipWireTaxSelector 2019-05-25 --> SnipWire will be free and open source If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:
      https://github.com/gadgetto/SnipWire
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      Please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about (open spoiler):
      (Please note: these screenshots are from an early development state of SnipWire. To see actual screens please have a look at later posts below!)

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.60
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      ⚠️ NOTICE: 1.5.60 is an important security patch-release for an XSS vulnerability discovered by @phlp. It's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that all Jumplinks users update to the latest version as soon as possible.
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy! 🙂
