I'm trying to figure out how to sync fields and templates between staging and production environments.
I've found Migrations module by Lostkobrakai, but with use of it all the fields and templates must be created by API, which is kind of uncomfortable.
I also tried ProcessDatabaseBackups module which can export only certain tables, but I don't think it's the best practice to do that.
How do you guys solve this problem? It's very annoying to setup everything three times (dev, staging, production).
Thanks a lot :)
I have been reading about Multisite, but it kinda bugs me that every topic talks about having both admin and database same for multiple sites.
I have a project where customer tests it by adding content to the site, while I still need to do some changes here and there in code, maybe some in database. If something crashes for a while, customer can't keep testing, which is a bit problematic.
Is there any way that I could have two separate versions of one site ("production" and development) that share the same database, but are otherwise independent? Just the thought of having to migrate database every time I want to show client something new gives me anxiety 😁
Warning: it's going to be TL;DR so proceed with caution
In an effort to come up with an optimized development workflow, I have come up with the idea of implementing most of the required template files in the form of static HTML files first (based on a "CSS framework" which will also serve as the CSS base of the site).
Basically I want to implement most of the frontend without touching ProcessWire in the first place. The advantage of this approach is that it is a lot faster to work with only HTML/CSS/JS during the frontend design phase of the project, and the end result of the design phase can be "similar" to a wireframe/mockup which can be presented to a client, but this "mockup" actually represents (say) 80% of the final design, so it is something that is rather good to work with when the backend development with ProcessWire begins.
This also means that my ProcessWire template files will be mostly implemented with <?php echo ... ?> and alternative syntax control structures that can be "just injected" into the above mentioned static HTML template files to turn them into ProcessWire template files later on.
So far so good, but my ProcessWire template files are going to be separated into "template file partials", and I also want to implement the static HTML template files in the same way, so that they are also separated into "template file partials", and ideally organized in the very same structure.
E.g. I will include the site's navigation in the ProcessWire template file like this:
<?php echo $navigation ?>
So I want to do the same in the corresponding static HTML template file, something like this:
If it can be done recursively, then I can implement the same in both cases. With ProcessWire, I use wireRenderFile() to render partials recursively, so I just had to figure out what to use in the case of the static HTML template files.
Note, that currently this technique only works in Chrome(-ium), but that is my choice in frontend development anyway. I've read somewhere that other browsers might never implement "HTML Imports", but that is to be seen...
I have found a lot of articles explaining the basics of "HTML Imports", but I could not find any libraries or frameworks nor even something similar to what I need, so I implemented a proof of concept version of mine:
Here it is in action (Chrome(-ium) only!!!): [...no longer live...]
And here is the source code for those who want to take a closer look: [...old stuff, I removed it to save space...]
However, I'm pretty sure that someone must have already come up with this idea, so I'm asking the ProcessWire community if anyone can point me to similar solutions, something that I can study and/or use.
So any piece of advice that might help me to take it to the next level, or any objections to this "HTML Imports" technique, any disadvantages? Thank you in advance
After temporarily using Module Image Extra, which I completely removed, I had some troubles with my imagefield (unused table columns).
So I just imported a previous version of this column via PHPmyAdmin, which worked pretty well.
Anyways, in Processwire Backend all image tags are gone, although they are OK in the database.
Other image related things work (thumbnail, title etc are OK).
Is there any way to recreate all the images or something? Or may this be an cache-related issue?
Thanks in advance 😃
We have many booking calendars made with ProcessWire (own databases) and I want to do a web app (SQL) which allows user to log in. First, the user chooses the right calendar and then (s)he have to log in. The user can be from any of those calendars and the app is not running on ProcessWire (it can if necessary). So if there any way to make sure that the user has rights to the calendar (s)he tries to log in and if the password is correct.
Is there any better way to do this? I could also use PIN codes or something, but those need to be encrypted too.
Multiple ProcessWires A lot of users per ProcessWire Everyone can log in to the web app (when using right calendar)
