Awesome!

Just a few remarks after trying it out for 5-10 minutes...

My main concern with such a powerful tool is security: I see you created a special permission for this module. I guess that your intention was that only superusers are able to use this module. If I allowed regular editors use this module, it'll only be a question of time till someone breaks stuff (editing core files, PHP etc.). I just want to make sure there's no nasty backdoor (like with WP's code editor, that is still installed and enabled by default, and is still a massive security hole)...

This module is awesome! Exactly what I was thinking about these holidays. I was about to try to integrate codiad into PW, but it is probably not needed anymore.

The editor is obviously codemirror (have you considered monaco, by the way). Is this one a filemanager used?

A few questions:

  1. Does it seem possible to limit edit capabilities for roles by directory/filetype in the future?
  2. Does it seem possible to run terminal commands through the interface for on-site asset building and such?
  3. Are there any known platform limitations?

Yes.

If you allow other users to use this module than it's not free anymore, see license file for filemanager.

Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that. This is first alpha release of the module, just to see if there is any interest in this at all. I didn't write the components, I just made filemanager works in PW (and it was a LOT of work too).

Hmm. never saw this, will take a look.

EDIT: I like the way codiad works, that's how filemanager should work. It has more modern approach, it's fast, uses ace, it's more developer-centric.

I did, tried it somewhere else (ProcessFileEdit perhaps?), but failed.

Yes. I modified my original post to reflect that, I just forget it yesterday.

Everything is possible, but I'm not sure in what direction will this module move (if at all). filemanager by itself allows hiding files of certain types, but it's disabled. The best way would be to try the original filemanager and all the options available (or you can try in the module itself, check config.inc.php).

On windows, you can't change permissions. Displayed permissions might be inaccurate. I modified filemanager so that at least file permissions should be correct. On file info, you will see the correct owner of the file/folder and acl list.

This would be the most useful module for me, because I tend to do my sidejobs at the office after work (I know, it's not proper, commuting issues that's why ) and we have a strong Firewall that blocks FTP and CPanel pages, so this will come real handy, am assuming it has a code-editor in it. thanks a bunch.

Am looking at that too, I will fork your project over the weekend and see how I can contribute, am really interested in this, though I have a feeling Monaco feels like overkill, but i will evaluate it and see.

I have a question related to security. 

AFAIK in a lot of shared hosts that are based upon php as apache module, not a cgi version, the php www-user only (should) have write access to files under assets, not modules and templates. 

Is there a way, workaround, for those cases to use the module too?

But if it doesn't have access to "modules" then you can't use the PW Upgrade module either and I am pretty sure there are a lot of people using that. Sure it may not be the most secure approach, but there will always be some trade-off.

That would prevent you from using Upgrade module, but yes, this is how it should be done in secure environments and how I have set all my sites (I'm on windows but the principle is the same). I upgrade (if at all) manually, since I'm the administrator of the server. 

Filemanager has some more options that might come handy: you can hide specific directories (eg. wire), you can hide "system files", hide file path in file details, hide symbolic link target, you can disable upload, download, edit, copy, rename, move, create, search, permissions. Those options are not available in module config settings, since the module is intended for site admins (superusers) primarily and I assume he would want all features enabled...

Yeah, monaco has large size, 32 MB, and it's slower on start than CodeMirror or Ace.

Hi Sephiroth

Did you try net2ftp, monsta ftp and cpanel proxy urls at the office ?

Net2FTP logs me out everytime, I feel it must be network related haven't tried monsta FTP but i like the having to just edit the file from the same application however it should only edit the modules and templates and not core code.

Maybe ProcessFileEdit module would be enough for you?

ProcessFileEdit is fantastic and I think ProcessFileManager has a useful role as well when you need to create/delete/move files around and don't have your dev machine with you.

Also, here's a sneak peak for the new File Editor Panel in Tracy (coming soon!).

This comes with: Test (changes don't affect other users) and Restore functionality (in case you save and made a major mistake) for all file types and even continues to work if you accidentally introduced a fatal error into the code you just saved - this allows you to recover without needing FTP access. Of course this doesn't replace the functionality of ProcessFileManager at all, but another tool in the arsenal.

The module was never published in the module directory :-)

Do you consider to maintain this module?

Yes and no. A large part of this module is not written by me, so I can't support any new features, I can only make it work as a Processwire module. That's why I didn't publish it in the module directory. It's also a powerful tool with the potential of wiping your site if it lands in the wrong hands, so I didn't want too much publicity. I don't work with PW so much anymore, and I'm becoming a bit rusty and can't afford to maintain too many modules. Nevertheless, I will do what I can to help if problems arise.

Is Processwire losing traction?? ... lately I have read many comments in this forum from several of the most prominent people in the discussions who are no longer working with Processwire .. 😱??

      Hello community!

      I want to share a new module I've been working on that I think could be a big boost for multi-language ProcessWire sites.

      Some background, I was looking for a way for our company website to be efficiently translated as working with human translators was pretty laborious and a lack of updating content created a divergence between languages. I, and several other devs here, have talked about translation integrations and have recognized the power that DeepL has. DeepL is an AI deep learning powered service that delivers translation quality beyond any automated service available. After access to the API was opened up to the US, I built Fluency, a DeepL translation integration for ProcessWire.
      Fluency brings automated translation to every multi-language field in the admin, and also provides a translation tool allowing the user to translate their text to any language without it being inside a template's field. With Fluency you can:
      Translate any plain textarea or text input Translate any CKEditor content (yes, with markup) Translate page names for fully localized URLs on every page Translate your in-template translation function wrapped strings Translate modules Fluency is free, and now so is DeepL
      Since this module was first built DeepL has introduced free Developer accounts that allow anyone to start using Fluency at zero cost and beginning with the version 0.3.0 release Fluency now supports free DeepL accounts. As of June 2021 DeepL supports translation to 26 languages and continues to offer more!
      Installation and usage is completely plug and play. Whether you're building a new multi-language site, need to update a site to multi-language, or simply want to stop manually translating a site and make any language a one-click deal, it could not be easier to do it. Fluency works by having you match the languages configured in ProcessWIre to DeepL's. You can have your site translating to any or all of the languages DeepL translates to in minutes (quite literally).
      Let's break out the screenshots...
      When the default language tab is shown, a message is displayed to let users know that translation is available. Clicking on each tab shows a link that says "Translate from English". Clicking it shows an animated overlay with the word "Translating..." cycling through each language and a light gradient shift. Have a CKEditor field? All good. Fluency will translated it and use DeepL's ability to translate text within HTML tags. CKEditor fields can be translated as easily and accurately as text/textarea fields.

      Repeaters and AJAX created fields also have translation enabled thanks to a JavaScript MutationObserver that searches for multi-language fields and adds translation as they're inserted into the DOM. If there's a multi-language field on the page, it will have translation added.

      Same goes for image description fields. Multi-language SEO friendly images are good to go.

      Creating a new page from one of your templates? Translate your title, and also translate your page name for native language URLs. (Not available for Russian, Chinese, or Japanese languages due to URL limitations). These can be changed in the "Settings" tab for any page as well so whether you're translating new pages or existing pages, you control the URLs everywhere.

      Language configuration pages are no different. Translate the names of your languages and search for both Site Translation Files (including all of your modules)

      Translate all of the static text in your templates as well. Notice that the placeholders are retained. DeepL is pretty good at recognizing and keeping non-translatable strings like that. If it is changed, it's easy to fix manually.

      Fluency adds a "Translate" item to the CMS header. When clicked this opens up a modal with a full translation tool that lets the user translate any language to any language. No need to leave the admin if you need to translate content from a secondary language back to the default ProcessWire language. There is also a button to get the current API usage statistics. DeepL account owners can set billing limitations via character count to control costs. This may help larger sites or sites being retrofitted keep an eye on their usage. Fluency can be used by users having roles given the fluency-translate permission.

      It couldn't be easier to add Fluency to your new or existing website. Simply add your API key and you're shown what languages are currently available for translation from/to as provided by DeepL. This list and all configuration options are taken live from the API so when DeepL releases new languages you can add them to your site without any work. No module updates, just an easy configuration. Just match the language you configured in ProcessWire to the DeepL language you want it to be associated with and you're done. Fluency also allows you to create a list of words/phrases that will not be translated which can prevent items such as brands and company names from being translated when they shouldn't

       
      Limitations:
      No "translate page" - Translating multiple fields can be done by clicking multiple translation links on multiple fields at once but engineering a "one click page translate" is not feasible from a user experience standpoint. The time it takes to translate one field can be a second or two, but cumulatively that may take much longer (CKEditor fields are slower than plain text fields). There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't currently on the roadmap. No "translate site" - Same thing goes for translating an entire website at once. It would be great, but it would be a very intense process and take a very (very) long time. There may be a workaround in the future but it isn't on the roadmap. No current support for Inline CKEditor fields - Handling for CKEditor on-demand hasn't been implemented yet, this is planned for a future release though and can be done. I just forgot about it because I've never really used that feature personally.. Alpha release - This module is in alpha. Releases should be stable and usable, but there may be edge case issues. Test the module thoroughly and please report any bugs via a Github issue on the repository or respond here. Please note that the browser plugin for Grammarly conflicts with Fluency (as it does with many web applications). To address this issue it is recommended that you disable Grammarly when using Fluency, or open the admin to edit pages in a private window where Grammarly may not be loaded. This is an issue that may not have a resolution as creating a workaround may not be possible. If you have insight as to how this may be solved please visit the Github page and file a bugfix ticket.
      Requirements:
      ProcessWire  3.0+ UIKit Admin Theme That's Fluency in a nutshell. A core effort in this module is to create it so that there is nothing DeepL related hard-coded in that would require updating it when DeepL offers new languages. I would like this to be a future-friendly module that doesn't require developer work to keep it up-to-date.
      The Module Is Free
      This is my first real module and I want to give it back to the community as thanks. This is the best CMS I've worked with (thank you Ryan & contributors) and a great community (thank you dear reader).
      DeepL Developer Accounts
      In addition to paid Pro Developer accounts, DeepL now offers no-cost free accounts. Now all ProcessWire developers and users can use Fluency at no cost.
      Learn more about free and paid accounts by visiting the DeepL website. Sign up for a Developer account, get an API key, and start using Fluency today.

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      This is a simple module I made so a client could quickly grab a QR Code of the page's url in the admin.
      There's not much to it for now, but if need be you can output anything using a hook:
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) You can also output the QR code on your front-end by calling the field:
      echo $page->qr_code_field; The module uses the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase. When looking for a way to generate a QR Code in PW I came across @ryan's integration in his TFA module. I'm not very familiar with fieldtype/inputfield module development so I blindly followed @bernhard (great) tutorial and his BaseFieldtypeRuntime. At some point I'll take a deeper look to make a module on my own.
      Some ideas for improvements :
      add the ability to choose what to ouput : page's url / editUrl / file(s) / image(s) / ... allow to output multiple QR codes ?

      Inspired by @bernhard's excellent work on the new customisable LESS CSS getting rolled into the core soon, I thought I would offer up the module for beta testing, if it is of interest to anyone.

      It takes a different approach to admin styling, basically using the Cascade part of CSS to over-ride default UiKit values.
      Values are stored in ModuleConfig Module creates a separate AdminThemeTweaker Folder at root, so it can link to AdminThemeTweaker.php as CSS AdminThemeTweaker.php reads the module values, constructs the CSS variables then includes the CSS framework Can be switched on and off with a click. Uninstall removes everything, thanks to bernhard's wonderful remove dir & contents function.
      It won't touch your core. It won't care if stuff is upgraded. You won't need to compile anything and you don't need to touch CSS unless you want to.

      It won't do much at all apart from read some values from your module config, work out the right CSS variables to use (auto contrast based on selected backgrounds) and throw it on your screen.
      You can configure a lot of stuff, leave it as it comes (dark and curvy), change two main colors (background and content background) or delve deep to configure custom margins, height of mastheads, and all manner of silly stuff I never use.

      Have been developing it for somewhere around 2 years now. It has been (and will continue to be) constantly tweaked over that time, as I click on something and find something else to do.
      That said, it is pretty solid and has been in constant use as my sole Admin styling option for all of those 2 years.

      If nothing else, it would be great if it can provide any assistance to @bernhard or other contributor's who may be looking to solve some of the quirkier UiKit behavior.
      Has (in my opinion) more robust and predictable handling of hidden Inputfields, data-colwidths and showIf wrappers.
      I am very keen to help out with that stuff in any way I can, though LESS (and any css frameworks/tools basically) are not my go.
      I love CSS variables and banging-rocks-together, no-dependency CSS you can write with notepad.

      I see old posts saying that repeaters are not the way to go in Custom Process Modules. If that is the case, when using forms (as I am trying to do) how would one tackle things like repeat contact fields where there can be multiple requirements for contact details with different parameters? (Like point of contact, director, etc) or even telephone numbers that have different uses?
      Just for background I am creating a process module that allows me to create types of financial applications in the admin area (no need to publish any of this, pure admin) that require a lot of personal or company information.
      Maybe I am thinking about this incorrectly?
