ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate

Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.

This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.

Check out the screencast

What the module can do

  • Duplicate a repeater item from one page to another
  • No matter how complex the item is
  • Full support for file and image fields
  • Multilingual support
  • Support of Min and Max settings
  • Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button
  • Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page
  • Configurable which roles and fields are excluded
  • Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published
  • Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked
  • Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours
  • Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again
  • Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication

What the module can't do

  • Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated
  • Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely
  • No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item
  • Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event

Changelog

Wow, that's awesome.

Yes, this would be great to have in the RM core indeed.

btw: How did you build the CKE dropdown for lorem ipsum paragraphs?

WOW!! Jaw dropped here... I'm really impressed, David! This module and the admin settings you built look incredible.

Dumb question: how did you create those matrix thumbnails?

Awesome!! I'm also interested in how you changed the Repeater Matrix labels to images 🙂

I guess it's just CSS?

a.InputfieldRepeaterAddLink.InputfieldRepeaterMatrixAddLink.InputfieldRepeaterAddLinkInit[data-type="3"] {
	font-size: 0;
	width: 150px;
	height: 100px;
	display: inline-block;
	background-image: url(https://via.placeholder.com/150);
	background-repeat: no-repeat;
}

span.ui-priority-secondary {
	display: none;
}

Exactly. It's just a bit custom CSS. 👍 It might also be an idea for a matrix update that you can configure labels as images.  Would be more flexible.

Yep. And add a nice touch to convert automagically label/link-texts to title attributes, so when the author hovers over an image, he knows exactly what kind of matrix item he/she will add.

I have started a topic in Repeater Matrix closed support board with a request to make it possible to override InputfieldRepeaterMatrix::renderFooter method in a hook. This way we can probably implement any kind of add content type design without css overrides.

Version Update 1.0.3

The current version 1.0.3 has some minor improvements. Items are inserted at the last position on the target page and set to the status unpublished. Furthermore, the clipboard is synchronized live, so you can jump between browser tabs without reloading the target page, for direct pasting. And the module runs only in the backend in the autoload.

Version Update 1.0.4

The current version has got some improvements, bug fixes and new features. Meanwhile a bit further than just a proof of concept. I would call it a beta version. I now submit it to the PW directory.

IMPORTANT for an update from older versions: completely uninstall and delete the old versions! Only then install the new version.

All information and downloads are updated in the first post.

@kongondo Can you please move this topic under "Modules"? I think the module is out of development. Thanks a lot.

great module @David Karich, thx!

will there be an option to cross-copy-paste content between two different matrix-repeater-fields with same matrix-repeater-field-types (same configuration)?
is or is this not possible?

Thank you, I'm glad it's useful to you and thank you for your donation. 🙂 

Unfortunately, cross-copying is not possible because at the point where you initialize the copy, the module does not know the name of the other field. So it can only read the current name of the matrix field and use this name when copying to the target. I'll think about whether you can introduce an option to select the target field before copying. But I think there is a lot of potential for errors when copying.

So first of all, unfortunately not possible at the moment.

BTW, @ryan, the module has been in checking for the module directory for several months now and has not yet been released. Does this module bother you in the context of a free extension for your ProModule?

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.
