Looks very polished. Are the animations very slow or is that the video framerate? Looking great so far!

Wow, I waited so long for something like this. I think this could push ProcessWire really forward. When do you plan to release? And will it be a paid module or a free one?

Thank you for creating this.

It's coming along quite nicely. I do not have a firm release/completion date yet, although working towards it as fast as possible.¬†As soon as I can¬†I will answer all your questions about Designme. Hopefully by the end of this week I will be able to show you guys some more features that I didn't include in the preview video. ūüôā

I've been thinking PW could do with something like this for a long time but your implementation is way better than anything I had imagined - great work! ūüėÄ

Thanks a lot. I think the biggest challenge so far has been to try to make Designme feel like a natural extension of using PW instead of an additional layer of complexity.

Is it dynamically creating a custom template on-the-fly? Just quickly thinking how it works, though it doesn't really matter. Quite slick indeed.

Awesome.

I also like @theo's "preview / page-grid" module a lot. I realize they don't do the same stuff, but just imagine if you had both functionalities available!

In this demo video, it is working from the existing 'home' template. All Ajax requests are going directly to the existing ProcessPageEdit url. there are no 'dynamic templates', but very shortly, you will have the ability to create templates on the fly from the page tree and start editing directly in Designme to speedup template/data model creation. So you can start with a completely blank template/editscreen and start throwing in fields as fast as possible. (hope this makes sense).

Joshuag, from the videos I can tell that the work of your team is a masterpiece. It would be great to test the functionality in real whenever you are ready for a release. Keep up the good work. That is why I signed up for ProcessWire - because of its super creative and extremely supportive community.

If you need some testers, you can count on me. I am just starting a new project and a module like yours would help me get more efficient while at the same time I would make sure to report any issues spotted or share ideas of improvement (if any ofcourse ūüėȬ†)

When removing a field from Page Edit, is the user removing that field from the associated template? Does that happen on the fly or Is there some sort of "Apply" step that happens at the end with the normal warnings about the loss of data that will occur? If it happens on the fly is there an undo feature? I'd be a bit nervous about accidentally clicking on the field remove button otherwise.

      Needed a really simple solution to embed audio files within page content and couldn't find a module for that, so here we go. Textformatter Audio Embed works a bit like Textformatter Video Embed, converting this:
      <p>https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3</p> Into this:
      <audio controls class="TextformatterAudioEmbed"> <source src="https://www.domain.tld/path/to/file.mp3" type="audio/mpeg"> </audio> The audio element has pretty good browser support, so¬†quite often this should be¬†enough to get things rolling¬†ūüôā

      Tense    
      Tense (Test ENvironment Setup & Execution) is a command-line tool to easily run tests agains multiple versions of ProcessWire CMF.
      Are you building a module, or a template and you need to make sure it works in all supported ProcessWire versions? Then Tense is exactly what you need. Write the tests in any testing framework, tell Tense which ProcessWire versions you are interested in and it will do the rest for you.

      See example or see usage in a real project.
      How to use?
      1. Install it: 
      composer global require uiii/tense 2. Create tense.yml config:
      tense init 3. Run it:
      tense run  
      For detailed instructions see Github page: https://github.com/uiii/tense
       
      This is made possible thanks to the great wireshell tool by @justb3a, @marcus and others.
       
      What do you think about it? Do you find it useful? Do you have some idea? Did you find some bug? Tell me you opinion. Write it here or in the issue tracker.

      Hi all, I am going round and round in circles and would greatly appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.
      I am sure¬†I am doing something dumb, or missing something I should know, but don't. Story of my life¬†ūüėČ

      Playing round with a module and my basic problem is I want to upload an image and also use InputfieldMarkup and other Inputfields.
      Going back and forth between trying an api generated page defining Fieldgroup, Template, Fields, Page and the InputfieldWrapper method.

      InputfieldWrapper method works great for all the markup stuff, but I just can't wrap my head around what I need to do to save the image to the database.
      Can generate a Field for it (thanks to the api investigations) but not sure what I need to do to link the Inputfield to that. Tried a lot of stuff from various threads, of varying dates without luck.
      Undoubtedly not helped by me not knowing enough.

      Defining Fieldgroup etc through the api seems nice and clean and works great for the images but I can't wrap my head around how/if I can add/append/hook the InputfieldWrapper/InputfieldMarkup stuff I'd like to include on that template as well. Not even sure if it should be where it is on ___install with the Fieldtype stuff or later on . Not getting Tracy errors, just nothing seems to happen.
      If anyone has any ideas or can point me in the right direction, that would be great because at the moment I am stumbling round in the dark.

      Since it's featured in ProcessWire Weekly #310, now is the time to make it official:
      Here is Twack!
      I really like the following introduction from ProcessWire Weekly, so I hope it is ok if I use it here, too. Look at the project's README for more details!
      Twack¬†is a new ‚ÄĒ or rather newish ‚ÄĒ¬†third party module for ProcessWire that provides support for reusable components in an Angular-inspired way.¬†Twack is implemented as an installable module, and a collection of helper and base classes. Key concepts introduced by this module are:
      Components, which have separate views and controllers. Views are simple PHP files that handle the output for the component, whereas controllers extend the TwackComponent base class and provide additional data handling capabilities. Services, which are singletons that provide a shared service where components can request data. The README for Twack uses a NewsService, which returns data related to news items, as an example of a service. Twack components are designed for reusability and encapsulating a set of features for easy maintainability, can handle hierarchical or recursive use (child components), and are simple to integrate with an existing site ‚ÄĒ even when said site wasn't originally developed with Twack.
      A very basic Twack component view could look something like this:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; ?> <h1>Hello World!</h1> And here's how you could render it via the API:
      <?php namespace Processwire; $twack = $modules->get('Twack'); $hello = $twack->getNewComponent('HelloWorld'); ?> <html> <head> <title>Hello World</title> </head> <body> <?= $hello->render() ?> </body> </html> Now, just to add a bit more context, here's a simple component controller:
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; class HelloWorld extends TwackComponent { public function __construct($args) { parent::__construct($args); $this->title = 'Hello World!'; if(isset($args['title'])) { $this->title = $args['title']; } } } As you can see, there's not a whole lot new stuff to learn here if you'd like to give Twack a try in one of your projects. The Twack README provides a really informative and easy to follow introduction to all the key concepts (as well as some additional examples) so be sure to check that out before getting started. 
      Twack is in development for several years and I use it for every new project I build. Also integrated is an easy to handle workflow to make outputs as JSON, so it can be used to build responses for a REST-api as well. I will work that out in one section in the readme as well. 
      If you want to see the module in an actual project, I have published the code of www.musical-fabrik.de in a repository. It runs completely with Twack and has an app-endpoint with ajax-output as well.
      I really look forward to hear, what you¬†think of Twackūü•≥!

      Page Reference Default Value
      Most ProcessWire core inputfield types that can be used with a Page Reference field support a "Default value" setting. This module extends support for default values to the following core inputfield types:
      Page List Select Page List Select Multiple Page Autocomplete (single and multiple) Seeing as these inputfield types only support the selection of pages a Page List Select / Page List Select Multiple is used for defining the default value instead of the Text / Textarea field used by the core for other inputfield types. This makes defining a default value a bit more user-friendly.
      Note that as per the core "Default value" setting, the Page Reference field must be set to "required" in order for the default value to be used.
