@pmichaelis If the error is thrown in line 131 it's likeley there is an error with the JWT Authorization. Maybe the Token you're submitting is not valid, maybe something else. Hard to tell with the little information you provided.

Oh, just noticed you already mentioned the JWT Auth… 🙂 Probably the error is produced in those 4 lines:

$secret = wire('modules')->RestApi->jwtSecret;
$token = str_replace('Bearer', '', $authHeader);
$token = trim($token);
$decoded = JWT::decode($token, wire('modules')->RestApi->jwtSecret, array('HS256'));

if the secret is in your config and you didn't change it, I'd check if the token gets transmitted properly with the request.

@thomasaull It seems that the authorisation headers are not present.

Added the following line to the htaccess:

RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

auth headers are stored in following variable

$_SERVER['REDIRECT_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION'];

Please don't ask why.

Here is the final cleaned-up and more secure 'api' template that I am using in between the RestApi router and ProCache, perhaps it can be of some help:

 

I ran into issues with a slow server using this method, where wireHttp would already resolve a result while RestApi was still running.
So with help from my co-worker @harmvandeven we came up with a more stable version, with some more redundancy: 
 

<?php

/*

    api.php, a simple PW template to fill the gap between the RestApi and ProCache modules
    v2

    @author: @eelkenet, with help from @harmvandeven & @ryan

    1. Create a template called 'api' and set it up using the following settings:
    - Allow URL segments
    - Allow guests to view the page
    - Set the Content-Type to application/json
    - Make sure to NOT Prepend or Append any files

    2. Add a page using this template and allow ProCache to run its magic

*/

$timeout = 600;
$maxAttempts = 10;

// Pre-check for unwanted symbols
if (strpos($input->urlSegmentStr(), '.') !== false) {
    throw new Wire404Exception();
}

// Build request URL
$endpoint = $modules->get("RestApi")->endpoint;
$url = $input->scheme() . "://" . $config->httpHost . "/" . $endpoint ."/" . $input->urlSegmentStr();

$http = new WireHttp();

// Set a high timeout, to deal with a slow server
$http->setTimeout($timeout);

// Get the HTTP status of the page, to make sure it exists in the first place
$status = $http->status($url);

// If the page exists, or possibly redirects to valid content
if ($status >= 200 && $status < 400) {

    $result = false;
    $attempt = 0;

    // If the result isn't a string, something went wrong
    while(gettype($result) !== "string" && $attempt++ < $maxAttempts) {

        $result = $http->get($url);
        if ($attempt > 1) wire()->log->message("Loading content at $url, attempt $attempt: " . gettype($result));
    }

    // Double check if the data is a string..
    if (gettype($result) === "string"){

        // .. And check if it can be decoded, if so: return the data and thus cache it
        if (json_decode($result) !== NULL) return $result;

        // If it cannot be decoded: throw exception (don't cache it)
        throw new WireException("Found the data at $url, but it could not be decoded. Please check your API output!");
    }

    // Throw exception if data could not be loaded in time (don't cache it)
    throw new WireException("Found the data at $url, but could not load it in time, after $attempt attempts. Result has type: " . gettype($result));

}

// Throw generic exception if the requested page was not found or there was another error
throw new WireException("Failed to load the content at: $url, with HTTP status: " . $status);

Hi

I've just installed this module (processwire version 3.0.123) but I can't get anything off a connection. I tried a clean install without any modules activated and have the some problem. Is there anything that has to be installed to be able to get a response? I'm developing on a local environment of xampp and tried it on a mac os environment with mamp aswell.

I tested it on a production environment (online hosting) and there it is working. I'm guessing it has something to do with the local servers. Anybody has an idea what should be activated?

Thanks in advance

@thibaultvdb It's a bit difficult to help from here. One thing you could try is to go through the code in Router.php and return or exit early to find out until where the code runs. The main functions are "go()" and "handle()". Another idea is to compare php settings between your hosted and local environment with "phpinfo()". If you can isolate the issue it's much easier to help.

The main functions are all going like they should. I tried comparing the php info like you said but those files are huge so hard to compare them and find out what is missing/wrong. Is there a localhost software you recommend that is working? Friends that have mamp pro don't have the issue but using mamp/xampp does give me the 404. It's strange that I don't get errors, only a 404 page.

If I can provide you anything please let me know since serverside issue's aren't my best area of working.

@thibaultvdb 

I think that by default on XAMPP your ProcessWire installation is in a subdir, and I bet that the module is giving you as api endpoint something like : /subdir/api instead of the /api endpoint. 

You should ask your friends to help you to setup your localhost environment to use a domain like  http://mylocalwebsite.local

To get started, you can follow the second answer here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16229126/using-domain-name-instead-of-localhost-in-with-https-in-xampp

or follow this tutorial to use AcrylicDNS (the best solution IMO, do not be afraid, it's really easy to setup) https://www.ottorask.com/blog/automated-apache-virtual-hosts-on-windows/

 

Good luck.

@flydev I must say you are the savior of the day. The reason was indeed that xampp is putting "localhost" in front of the site url.
In my case this was "localhost/sitename" the RestApi module probably didn't understand this sitename url what gave me 404-pages all the time.

@thomasaull You mentioned that maybe this could be fixed through the settings of the module. Could you give an example of a path?
Maybe it's usefull to add a option to the module or something that notifies the user if it is using localhost or to automatically prefix this with localhost? I don't think I will be the only one that uses the localhost prefix 😛 

Thanks for the help already! Hopefully there is a possibility to handle this in the settings so I don't have to use these virtual hosts. Or maybe look at the processwire config? The processwire handles this localhost prefix perfectly.

@thibaultvdb I need to check this, since I think (when I remember it properly) I put this option in specifically for this use-case. If you want to fiddle around try making it work or you know/want to figure out how ProcessWire does this automatically feel free 🙂 Otherwise I can't really make any promise when I'm going to be able to look into this

@Hurme

Did you check your server error logs for hints? Or site/assets/logs/ ?

First of all, you could try to delete everything in site/assets/cache/modules/. 

If that doesn't work, rename the REST API module: prepend a dot (.modulename).

@dragan Hi, I've left the office and wont be back until next week, but I'll see if deleting the cache has any effect. There were no errors in the log files, just your usual "Saved module X". Of course deleting the module itself resolves the crashing issue, but then you can't really use the module.

Recently a user of this module had the problem that some multi-language fields weren't working correctly.kno After some investigation I discovered, that the hook this module uses (it's a "before ProcessPageView::execute") kicks in to early for the multi-language plugins to be ready. Does anyone knows of a hook, which can do something similar (basically take over the default routing of ProcessWire) while still have the other modules loaded?

One alternative approach for this specific problem would be to not trigger the module via a hook but with an own template and page like the old RestApiProfile did. A couple of benefits would come for free aswell (these are my assumptions, not tested yet):

  • ProCache should work without any workarounds
  • Multi-Language works
  • Websites in subdirectories (if working in ProcessWire in general) should work
  • site profile export would work if the /api folder lives in /templates by default

Any potential downsides I'm not seeing yet? Thoughts?

I wrote an api-module a few years ago, where the module generated a custom template (e.g. "api-page"), which could be used to create one or more endpoint-pages. To handle calls to these pages I used ProcessPageView::pageNotFound like @bernhard did:

$this->addHookBefore('ProcessPageView::pageNotFound', $this, 'handleApiRequest');
public function handleApiRequest(HookEvent $e) {
	$page = $e->arguments[0];

	if ($page->template === 'api-page') {
		// handle request here...
		$otherEvent = $e->arguments(0); // grab event provided to PageRender::renderPage
		$e->replace = true; // prevent PageRender::renderPage from being called
	}
}

It worked nice for me, but I cannot say if caching or multi-language works better in this hook. pageNotFound should be called later than execute, so there is a chance that it helps 🤷‍♂️

Hello everyone,
while building an app-interface for a page, I developed some changes and improvements to this module, which I made available as a pull request
But @thomasaull and I are not quite sure if it makes sense to transfer these basic changes into the main module as well. Therefore we would like to hear your opinion: What do you think of the new module version? Which features would be useful for you? 

I have developed several new features that allow the administration of Api accesses via the ProcessWire backend. I also revised the authentication and added a new Double-JWT option that works with long-lasting refresh and short-lived access-tokens.

New Features:

  • New menu item "Restapi" in the ProcessWire menu under "setup
  • Management of Api accesses (applications) outsourced to the new menu item
  • Apikeys now authorize api-access
  • Creation of multiple applications with different auth types possible
  • Double-JWT Authentication, renewable tokens
  • token-sessions can be viewed and deleted in the backend
  • Improved exception handling: Each endpoint can throw exceptions, which are then output with the appropriate HTTP status header and message.

      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?
