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.

Yes, CodeMirror and, later maybe monaco (PR's welcome).

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.

Please, can somebody tell me the reason why this useful module is not available in the module directory?

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 .. 😱??

      This module lets you add some custom menu items to the main admin menu, and you can set the dropdown links dynamically in a hook if needed.
      Sidenote: the module config uses some repeatable/sortable rows for the child link settings, similar to the ProFields Table interface. The data gets saved as JSON in a hidden textarea field. Might be interesting to other module developers?
      Custom Admin Menus
      Adds up to three custom menu items with optional dropdowns to the main admin menu.
      The menu items can link to admin pages, front-end pages, or pages on external websites.
      The links can be set to open in a new browser tab, and child links in the dropdown can be given an icon.
      Requires ProcessWire v3.0.178 or newer.
      Screenshots
      Example of menu items

      Module config for the menus

      Link list shown when parent menu item is not given a URL

      Advanced
      Setting child menu items dynamically
      If needed you can set the child menu items dynamically using a hook.
      Example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); if($menu_number === 1) { $colours = $event->wire()->pages->findRaw('template=colour', ['title', 'url', 'page_icon']); $children = []; foreach($colours as $colour) { // Each child item should be an array with the following keys $children[] = [ 'icon' => $colour['page_icon'], 'label' => $colour['title'], 'url' => $colour['url'], 'newtab' => false, ]; } $event->return = $children; } }); Create multiple levels of flyout menus
      It's also possible to create multiple levels of flyout submenus using a hook.

      For each level a submenu can be defined in a "children" item. Example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); if($menu_number === 1) { $children = [ [ 'icon' => 'adjust', 'label' => 'One', 'url' => '/one/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'anchor', 'label' => 'Two', 'url' => '/two/', 'newtab' => false, 'children' => [ [ 'icon' => 'child', 'label' => 'Red', 'url' => '/red/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'bullhorn', 'label' => 'Green', 'url' => '/green/', 'newtab' => false, 'children' => [ [ 'icon' => 'wifi', 'label' => 'Small', 'url' => '/small/', 'newtab' => true, ], [ 'icon' => 'codepen', 'label' => 'Medium', 'url' => '/medium/', 'newtab' => false, ], [ 'icon' => 'cogs', 'label' => 'Large', 'url' => '/large/', 'newtab' => false, ], ] ], [ 'icon' => 'futbol-o', 'label' => 'Blue', 'url' => '/blue/', 'newtab' => true, ], ] ], [ 'icon' => 'hand-o-left', 'label' => 'Three', 'url' => '/three/', 'newtab' => false, ], ]; $event->return = $children; } }); Showing/hiding menus according to user role
      You can determine which menu items can be seen by a role by checking the user's role in the hook.
      For example, if a user has or lacks a role you could include different child menu items in the hook return value. Or if you want to conditionally hide a custom menu altogether you can set the return value to false. Example:
      $wire->addHookAfter('CustomAdminMenus::getMenuChildren', function(HookEvent $event) { // The menu number is the first argument $menu_number = $event->arguments(0); $user = $event->wire()->user; // For custom menu number 1... if($menu_number === 1) { // ...if user does not have some particular role... if(!$user->hasRole('foo')) { // ...do not show the menu $event->return = false; } } });

      Symprowire is a PHP MVC Framework based and built on Symfony using ProcessWire 3.x as DBAL and Service-Provider
      It acts as a Drop-In Replacement Module to handle the Request/Response outside the ProcessWire Admin. Even tough Symfony or any other mature MVC Framework could be intimidating at first, Symprowire tries to abstract Configuration and Symfony Internals away as much as possible to give you a quick start and lift the heavy work for you.
      The main Goal is to give an easy path to follow an MVC Approach during development with ProcessWire and open up the available eco-system.
      You can find the GitHub Repo and more Information here: https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire
      Documentation
      The Symprowire Wiki https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/wiki How to create a simple Blog with Symprowire https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/wiki/Symprowire-Blog-Tutorial Last Update
      16.07.2021 // RC 1 v0.6.0 centralized ProcessWire access trough out the Application by wrapping to a Service https://github.com/Luis85/symprowire/releases/tag/v0.6.0-rc-1 Requirements
      PHP ^7.4 Fresh ProcessWire ^3.0.181 with a Blank Profile Composer 2 (v1 should work, not recommended) The usual Symfony Requirements Features
      Twig Dependency Injection Monolog for Symprowire Support for .env YAML Configuration Symfony Console and Console Commands Symfony Webprofiler Full ProcessWire access inside your Controller and Services Webpack Encore support Caveats
      Symfony is no small Framework and will come with a price in terms of Memory Usage and added Overhead. To give you a taste I installed Tracy Debugger alongside to compare ProcessWire profiling with the included Symfony Webprofiler

      So in a fresh install Symprowire would atleast add another 2MB of Memory usage and around 40ms in response time, should be less in production due to the added overhead of the Webprofiler in dev env
