OAuth2Login for ProcessWire

A Module which give you ability to login an existing user using your favorite thrid-party OAuth2 provider (i.e. Facebook, GitHub, Google, LinkedIn, etc.)..
You can login from the backend to the backend directly or render a form on the frontend and redirect the user to a choosen page.
Built on top of ThePhpLeague OAuth2-Client lib.

Registration is not handled by this module but planned.

 
Howto Install

Install the module following this procedure:

 - http://modules.processwire.com/modules/oauth2-login/
 - https://github.com/flydev-fr/OAuth2Login

Next step, in order to use a provider, you need to use Composer to install each provider

ie: to install Google, open a terminal, go to your root directory of pw and type the following command-line: composer require league/oauth2-google

Tested providers/packages :

  •     Google :  league/oauth2-google
  •     Facebook: league/oauth2-facebook
  •     Github: league/oauth2-github
  •     LinkedIn: league/oauth2-linkedin


More third-party providers are available there. You should be able to add a provider by simply adding it to the JSON config file.


Howto Use It

First (and for testing purpose), you should create a new user in ProcessWire that reflect your real OAuth2 account information. The important informations are, Last Name, First Name and Email. The module will compare existing users by firstname, lastname and email; If the user match the informations, then he is logged in.

ie, if my Google fullname is John Wick, then in ProcessWire, I create a new user  Wick-John  with email  johnwick@mydomain.com

Next step, go to your favorite provider and create an app in order to get the ClientId and ClientSecret keys. Ask on the forum if you have difficulties getting there.

Once you got the keys for a provider, just paste it into the module settings and save it. One or more button should appear bellow the standard login form.

The final step is to make your JSON configuration file.

In this sample, the JSON config include all tested providers, you can of course edit it to suit your needs :

{
  "providers": {
    "google": {
      "className": "Google",
      "packageName": "league/oauth2-google",
      "helpUrl": "https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials"
    },
    "facebook": {
      "className": "Facebook",
      "packageName": "league/oauth2-facebook",
      "helpUrl": "https://developers.facebook.com/apps/",
      "options": {
        "graphApiVersion": "v2.10",
        "scope": "email"
      }
    },
    "github": {
      "className": "Github",
      "packageName": "league/oauth2-github",
      "helpUrl": "https://github.com/settings/developers",
      "options": {
        "scope": "user:email"
      }
    },
    "linkedin": {
      "className": "LinkedIn",
      "packageName": "league/oauth2-linkedin",
      "helpUrl": "https://www.linkedin.com/secure/developer"
    }
  }
}

 

Backend Usage

In ready.php, call the module :

if($page->template == 'admin') { 
	$oauth2mod = $modules->get('Oauth2Login'); 
	if($oauth2mod) $oauth2mod->hookBackend(); 
}

 

Frontend Usage
Small note: At this moment the render method is pretty simple. It output a InputfieldForm with InputfieldSubmit(s) into wrapped in a ul:li tag. Feedbacks and ideas welcome!

For the following example, I created a page login and a template login which contain the following code :


    <?php namespace ProcessWire;

    if(!$user->isLoggedin()) {

            $options = array(
                'buttonClass' => 'my_button_class',
                'buttonValue' => 'Login with {provider}', // {{provider}} keyword
                'prependMarkup' => '<div class="wrapper">',
                'appendMarkup' => '</div>'
            );

            $redirectUri = str_lreplace('//', '/', $config->urls->httpRoot . $page->url);

            $content = $modules->get('Oauth2Login')->config(
              array(
                  'redirect_uri' => $redirectUri,
                  'success_uri'  => $page->url
              )
          )->render($options);
    }


The custom function lstr_replace() :

/*
 *  replace the last occurence of $search by $replace in $subject
 */
function str_lreplace($search, $replace, $subject) {
	return preg_replace('~(.*)' . preg_quote($search, '~') . '~', '$1' . $replace, $subject, 1);
}

The module got renamed and updated a bit as its not intended to run only on the backend, but work also on frontend side.

 

- Now, the administrator can choose to activate or not the backend login buttons.

- The providers are added "dynamically". You have to simply edit a JSON config file which once saved, will show the required fields in the module settings.

 

For example the following JSON config will only provide Google as login provider :

{
  "providers": {
    "google": {
      "className": "Google",
      "packageName": "league/oauth2-google",
      "helpUrl": "https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials"
    }
  }
}

 

Small note for pw users :

If like me you did not know, there is another module that manages OAuth2 authentication. Feel free to use the one which suit your needs! more info there:

 

 

@jmartsch you should create a new module thread :)

Hey Horst,

I think that in the time the lib was made, Twitter was still using OAuth 1.0A - but looking at their doc (twitter) OAuth2 is now supported (?), their doc also stipulate they still use OAuth 1.0A...

https://dev.twitter.com/oauth

I will look at more closely.

Some more precisions : We can be able to code an adapter for Twitter application-only, and this is the list of what we can do with :

  • Pull user timelines;
  • Access friends and followers of any account;
  • Access lists resources;
  • Search in Tweets;
  • Retrieve any user information;

So I must assume we can get at least the email and/or the firstname/lastname or a nickname.

@horst let me know if you will think to code something about that or I will give a try.

Many thanks @flydev , for digging deeper!

I'm currently out of resources to code something like this. Was just searching for an already available solution to login via twitter.

Registration should be done via PW only, where the PW username is set to the twitter username.
(Frontend)-Login then should be done via Twitter only.

So, if we would be able to retrieve the email address too, it would be more than I currently need. :)

I quite played with their API (i am talking about Twitter here), its absolutely not possible to retrieve private information with the OAuth2 protocol (still waiting a confirmation on the twittercommunity) but no big hope here. We are forced to use the OAuth 1.a protocol for those sensible datas.

So, there I come with two propositions. I can make an exception and integrate Twitter and OAuth-1.a in this module or I publish a standalone module for Twitter login.

What do you think, a suggestion ?

@flydev: Really I'm not feeling in the right position to give suggestions here. I appreciate all the work and recherche you do here, so you should decide what is lesser work or fits better for you, for what ever reason. - If, at the end, a solution is available that let people login with their twitter account, it would be really great and is much more than there is atm. :-)

Hi @flydev ! Great plugin, works mostly like a charm! ;)

I had 2 issues tough:

1. with google, matching first- and last-name and usernames does not work with our setup (special chars in names that are not reflected in the username etc). I think, this makes the plugin somewhat unflexible. Would be great to have the option configure the matching, or at least an option to only match the users mail (checkbox in the backend). I just saw the "options" "scope" settings in your github json and wonder if this is already implemented but not documented?

2. We run our new page in a subdirectory and the redirect url is wrong (this is more of a process-wire issue since its not easy to get the absolute urls from the api) this results in path being present twice in the redirect url:

Problem: urls()->root + urls()->admin = //domain.com/path/ + /path/admin/ > //domain.com/path/path/admin/

This  solution would be the following:

// inside init()
$this->backendUrl = pages()->get('path="'.str_replace(urls()->root, '', urls()->admin).'", include=all')->httpUrl;

 

Keep up the great work!

@noelboss hey, glad you like it.  Thanks for the fix ! I will merge your PR today.

 

About the issue #1, I will try to implement it the next week-end. Lacking time here.

For the Github scope option, I also need to make it more flexible. The thing is that with Github, if we don't specify the scope, we can only get a public email, and only if the user has set his email "public", which by default is set to hidden, so its impossible to use email address to identify users, and I assume that most users don't want to set their email public..

And about the issue you posted on Github, I think I have already made this modification on my local dev module. I will check that at the same time as the "firstname/lastname" order issue.

@rareyush  sorry, its a custom function, you can copy paste the code in _func.php or where you want :

 

/*
 *  replace the last occurence of $search by $replace in $subject
 */
function str_lreplace($search, $replace, $subject) {
	return preg_replace('~(.*)' . preg_quote($search, '~') . '~', '$1' . $replace, $subject, 1);
}

Hi @quickjeff

It should work out of the box. Just put the code after the LoginRegister execute() function call, done.

Awesome plugin... Just a small doubt. For a user who login / register using the GMAIL account, can we ( the developer ) extract this user email address, which is the gmail address this particular person used to login ? IF yes, how  ?

Is it possible to use the oauth2 library from the league...  with google calendar or other google services?
Because I tried to use

$service = $provider->getGoogleClient();

but the getGoogleClient() method is unknown... so I think this library is just for social login useful, isn´t it?

@flydev

Thanks for this module. Alas, unfortunately it doesn't work here. 

I have followed your installation steps, changed the JSON to:

{
  "providers": {
    "google": {
      "className": "Google",
      "packageName": "league/oauth2-google",
      "helpUrl": "https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials",
     "ClientId": "xxxxxxxxxxx-2q54e3b4n232hog8odtk66c7ogj7inl3.apps.googleusercontent.com",
     "ClientSecret":"xxxxxxxxC0fh1AfF7wwoW"
    }
  }
}

I installed the package via Composer in PW root (vendor folder is next to site/ and wire/).

However, I never see a provider screen in the module config after saving. And the frontend example just shows an empty form with just one hidden field. The backend variety throws an error:

Fatal Error: Uncaught ArgumentCountError: Too few arguments to function Oauth2Login::hookBackend(), 0 passed in /site/ready.php on line 12 and exactly 1 expected in /site/modules/Oauth2Login/Oauth2Login.module:175

Any idea what I might have missed?

edit: I installed the phpleague stuff via Composer locally, and then uploaded the vendor folder via FTP, along with the updated composer.json + composer.lock files. Not sure if that matters. Do I need to move the vendor folder elsewhere, i.e. somewhere in your module's folder maybe?

      Hi. I'm currently stuck at the login page in my project. Once I enter my admin username and my password and hit login, nothing happens. The page just reloads. However, the URL changes from http://myipaddress/processwire to http://myipaddress/processwire/?login=1. I've checked all of my server settings, and to my knowledge, all seems to be fine there. I don't know where to go from here.. Thanks in advance!

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Changelog
      2.0.0
      Feature: Copy multiple items at once! The fundament for copying multiple items was created by @Autofahrn - THX! Feature: Optionally you can disable the copy and/or paste dialog Bug fix: A fix suggestion when additional and normal repeater fields are present was contributed by @joshua - THX! 1.0.4

      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.

      Hey folks!
      I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire.
      Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂
      --
      Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things.
      Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/.
      In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles.
      Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe:
      site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. --
      Requirements and getting started:
      Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.)
      --
      This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc.
      While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules.
      I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no JavaScript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode. There are 4 different view modes.
      View mode "Day" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records. View mode "Month" shows the total of all visitors per day from the first to the last day of the selected month. View mode "Year" shows the total of all visitors per month from the first to the last month of the selected year. View mode "Total" shows the total of all visitors per year for all recorded years. Please note that multiple visits from the same IP address within the selected period are counted as a single visitor.
      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).
