Mystique (Fieldtype, Inputfield) build dynamic fields and store data by using config file

Recommended Posts

mystique.gif.ef5df542131d5bcd3fe8ad3ae03608b5.gif

Mystique Module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF

Github repo : https://github.com/trk/Mystique

Mystique module allow you to create dynamic fields and store dynamic fields data on database by using a config file.

Requirements

  • ProcessWire 3.0 or newer
  • PHP 7.0 or newer
  • FieldtypeMystique
  • InputfieldMystique

Installation

Install the module from the modules directory:

Via Composer:

composer require trk/mystique

Via git clone:

cd your-processwire-project-folder/
cd site/modules/
git clone https://github.com/trk/Mystique.git

Module in live reaction with your Mystique config file

This mean if you remove a field from your config file, field will be removed from edit screen. As you see on youtube video.

Using Mystique with your module or use different configs path, autoload need to be true for modules

Default configs path is site/templates/configs/, and your config file name need to start with Mystique. and need to end with .php extension.

// Add your custom path inside ready or init function, didn't tested outside
Mystique::add('your-configs-path');

All config files need to return a php array like examples.

Same as ProcessWire Inputfield Api, only difference is set and showIf usage
<?php

namespace ProcessWire;

/**
 * Resource : testing-mystique
 */
return [
    'title' => __('Testing Mystique'),
    'fields' => [
        'text_field' => [
            'label' => __('You can use short named types'),
            'description' => __('In file showIf working like example'),
            'notes' => __('Also you can use $input->set() method'),
            'type' => 'text',
            'showIf' => [
                'another_text' => "=''"
            ],
            'set' => [
                'showCount' => InputfieldText::showCountChars,
                'maxlength' => 255
            ],
            'attr' => [
                'attr-foo' => 'bar',
                'attr-bar' => 'foo'
            ]
        ],
        'another_text' => [
            'label' => __('Another text field (default type is text)')
        ]
    ]
];

Example:

  • site/templates/configs/Mystique.seo-fields.php
<?php

namespace ProcessWire;

/**
 * Resource : seo-fields
 */
return [
    'title' => __('Seo fields'),
    'fields' => [
        'window_title' => [
            'label' => __('Window title'),
            'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText
            'useLanguages' => true,
            'attr' => [
                'placeholder' => __('Enter a window title')
            ]
        ],
        'navigation_title' => [
            'label' => __('Navigation title'),
            'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText
            'useLanguages' => true,
            'showIf' => [
                'window_title' => "!=''"
            ],
            'attr' => [
                'placeholder' => __('Enter a navigation title')
            ]
        ],
        'description' => [
            'label' => __('Description for search engines'),
            'type' => Mystique::TEXTAREA,
            'useLanguages' => true
        ],
        'page_tpye' => [
            'label' => __('Type'),
            'type' => Mystique::SELECT,
            'options' => [
                'basic' => __('Basic page'),
                'gallery' => __('Gallery'),
                'blog' => __('Blog')
            ]
        ],
        'show_on_nav' => [
            'label' => __('Display this page on navigation'),
            'type' => Mystique::CHECKBOX
        ]
    ]
];

Searching data on Mystique field is limited. Because, Mystique saving data to database in json format. When you make search for Mystique field, operator not important. Operator will be changed with %= operator.

Search example

$navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.show_on_nav=1');
$navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.page_tpye=gallery');

Looks very cool, @ukyo! Thanks for that, but the font-size on the video was hard on my eyes. 🙂

No problem! Resolution is not the problem per se, but next time, for the sake of old fellas like myself, bump the font-size on your editor. 🙂

Maybe you could get some inspiration there from (or even improve on) my JsonNativeField module since MySQL supports searching inside JSON data.

Can you share a bit more details on how data is handled. E.g. what happens if I change a field or even remove it.

@BitPoet will check it, but i don't want to limit user's database options and if you need an important searchable field i am not advising to use this field, use a fully searchable field.

@LostKobrakai I will add more details on readme.md file and will update this post and module page.

About your question : as you see on youtube video, updating fields config file will update data entry form for admin page. If you remove field, you won't see this field on admin pages anymore. I am not caching your configs, always trying to get configs from selected config files.

My question was less about the field definitions, but more about the data stored in a field defined by your module. E.g. say I want to change an integer field to a float field.

Keep the field name same, do what you want. Because all data on database in string format (i am not checking user posted data), you can set field settings by using processwire fields api and you can limit user by settings.

Hook methods could be used for custom usages.

I am using this module for SEO, LANGUAGE and ELEMENTS (uikit components)

USAGE EXAMPLE : LANGUAGE

On my private module, i added my custom configs path to Mystique module by using :

Mystique::add('my-module-configs-path');

- Create config file

<?php

namespace ProcessWire;

// Filename: MyModule/configs/Mystique.language.php

// This options normally coming from a file array, i added 2 options for example
$options = [
	'tr' => 'Türkçe',
	'en' => 'English'
];
$defaultValue = 'en';

/**

            'description' => __('Display symbol after amount ?'),
            'type' => Mystique::TOGGLE_CHECKBOX,
            'type_fallback' => Mystique::CHECKBOX,
            'columnWidth' => 33
        ],
    ]
];

- Select config file from Mystique field settings

- Add Mystique field to language template

Access data via api (in this example mystique field name is : lang)

<?php

$language = $user->language;
// lang is Mystique field
echo 'Title : ' . $language->lang->title . '<br>';
echo 'Code : ' . $language->lang->code . '<br>';
echo 'Flag : ' . $language->lang->flag . '<br>';
echo 'Direction : ' . $language->lang->direction . '<br>';
echo 'Currency : ' . $language->lang->currency . '<br>';
echo 'Symbol : ' . $language->lang->symbol . '<br>';
echo 'Grouping separator : ' . $language->lang->grouping_separator . '<br>';
echo 'Decimal separator : ' . $language->lang->decimal_separator . '<br>';
echo 'Separator between amount and symbol : ' . $language->lang->separator . '<br>';
echo 'Show decimal : ' . $language->lang->show_decimal . '<br>';
echo 'Show symbol after amount : ' . $language->lang->symbol_after . '<br>';

Output:

Title : English
Code : en
Flag : gb
Direction : 0
Currency : GBP
Symbol : £
Grouping separator : ,
Decimal separator : .
Separator between amount and symbol : 1
Show decimal : 1
Show symbol after amount : 0

Hello @ukyo.  This module is fantastic, on the level of a Pro Field.  Nicely done!

From what I can tell, it does not support multi-select options (multi-select, ASM Select, Checkboxes).  Is this a planned feature?

Upon further inspection, setting the 'type' to 'InputfieldAsmSelect' does work and does save properly.  Awesome.

Nice to hear that.

Processing input field there is not special check for input field. https://github.com/trk/Mystique/blob/master/InputfieldMystique.module.php#L135

Little bit worked on a base field type (basically this field type will get entered field type's database schemas and will create 1 database table for all entered fields), if i success about this field type, i will try to use input field based checks.

For the moment getting and setting directly posted data.

First of all many thanks for the great Mystique Module.

I actually wanted to do something with Fieldset Group, but it's a ProModul so I've been looking for something similar. And I found Mystique. Could only do a few tests with it and then unfortunately made a PW update ...😭

Today I have PW3.0.140 installed and now the module does not work anymore. I am not a developer and can not determine the problem.😕

This is the output if I want to use the field:
Fatal Error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function prepend() on null in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/pw-pt/wire/core/Fields.php:1066

I also have the version "next" v.0.0.6 installed but it comes to the same error.
Can someone help or does someone have the same problem?

Thank you 😊

I was looking for a solution and think the module SeoMaestro has a similar problem with the new Processwire DEV version:

https://processwire.com/talk/topic/20817-seomaestro/?do=findComment&comment=190656

Maybe this info helps a PW professional to solve the problem.

@cosmo backup your project, grab the latest master release and make a downgrade. A quick fix for the time being. It's the same I did. 😉

Yes, that would be the fastest solution.

I've just started using Processwire, so it's not that tragic. But I had a nice project idea where I would like to use the new inputfield Toggle and Mystique. I hope for the PW professionals that they recognize the problem and make a PW or module update.

@cosmo @wbmnfktr @next version is not fully working version. Use published version on module directory. If you want to try @next version, don't do it on live projects !

I will check @next version with latest processwire dev version.

It's not the @next version, but the latest version of Processwire 3.0.140 in combination with the Mystique Module. On my installation, both Mystique module versions do not work with Processwire 3.0.140.

Thank you for checking.

It works - thank you. Great how fast you have solved this.👍

I once used the example file "Example-Dive". Here is an image inputfield, how does it work? When I upload a picture, nothing happens.

Do you have any more practical examples or information for beginners?

Hi @ukyo,

I've just tried your module for the first time, but unfortunately it does not find any resources! This is the tracy dump:

PWaFGFU.png

Somehow the resources array is empty:

lrcMVym.png

I have the following files in my setup:

C:\laragon\www\kaum\site\modules\Mystique\configs\Mystique.example-dive.php
C:\laragon\www\kaum\site\templates\configs\Mystique.mystique.php

No matter what I try - the resources select is empty:

sxXg2TJ.png

I've even tried to do a $config->paths->normalizeSeparators() on the path without success (thought it might be a windows issue).

Thx for your help!

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      Process Cache Control
      This module provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Clear the ProCache page render cache (if your site is using ProCache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Plans for improvements
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      PrevNextTabs Module
      Github: https://github.com/outflux3/PrevNextTabs
      Processwire helper modules for adding page navigation within the editor.
      Overview
      This is a very simple module that adds Previous and Next links inline with the tabs on the page editor. Hovering over the tab shows the title of the previous or next page (using the admin's built in jqueryUI tooltips.)
      Usage
      This module is typically used during development where you or your editors need to traverse through pages for the purpose of proofing, flagging and/or commenting. Rather than returning to the page tree or lister, they can navigate with these links.
      Warnings
      If you are using PW version 2.6.1 or later, the system will prevent you from leaving the page if you have unsaved edits.
      For earlier versions, to avoid accidentally losing changes made to a page that might occur if a user accidentally clicks on one of these, make sure to have the Form Save Reminder module installed.
