ProcessWire Dashboard


Recommended Posts

@MarkE There's currently no direct way to do this — the chart data is passed as a JSON blob, so no functions. I've been looking at setting up charts via JS files or JSON endpoints, but nothing concrete yet. I'll probably end up moving the chart panel to a chartkick.js implementation which would allow all of that.

@d'Hinnisdaël - if you're contemplating moving away from chartjs, can I recommend a library that outputs SVG, rather than canvas - perhaps c3js? The reason being that it makes styling the charts with CSS really easy and also modifying them with D3JS is easy.

On a different note, I wonder if you'd consider setting up support for multiple tabs using WireTab? One of my dashboards is getting very long and it would be great to be able to split it up into different views and I think a tabbed interface would be effective.

Good point about making charts styleable via CSS. My experience has been that most clients and most dashboards don't need charts at all, so frankly I don't think I'll be investing too much time here, but if or when I decide to revamp the chart panel I'll keep that in mind.

Adding tabs is definitely on my list. Groups are already supported, so adding tabs should be somewhat trivial. There's possible performance issues to keep in mind when rendering too many panels at once but that shouldn't be a blocker.

@adrian I went ahead and added very basic tab support. Thanks for the nudge. If you want to give it a try, feel free to check out the tabs branch of the repo. Theoretically it supports nesting tabs inside groups and vice versa, however it's largely untested so let me know if you run into trouble. I'd like to do some more testing before releasing a new version.

wire()->addHookAfter('Dashboard::getPanels', function ($event) {
    $panels = $event->return;

    $tab1 = $panels->createTab(['title' => 'Lorem ipsum']);
    $tab1->add(/* add panels here */);

    $tab2 = $panels->createTab(['title' => 'Dolor sit amet']);
    $tab2->add(/* add panels here */);

    $panels->add($tab1);
    $panels->add($tab2);
});

I recently installed the Processwire Dashboard module (https://daun.github.io/processwire-dashboard/#/). After I added the hook code in site/templates/admin.php, even though I can see the dashboard, the 'Pages' page shows this error -

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare _checkForMaxInputVars() (previously declared in wire/core/admin.php:line 96).' 

When I try to add a panel to show the Pagelist or simply try to access the subpages of any parent page, I see this error too. This error disappears when I remove the hook code from sites/templates/admin.php file. The code that the Dashboard module suggests we add to this file is as follows:

wire()->addHookAfter('Dashboard::getPanels'function ($event) {
  /* Get list of panels */
  $panels = $event->return;
 
  /* Add panels */
  $panels->add([
    'panel' => 'collection',
    'title' => 'News items',
    'data' => [
      'collection' => 'template=news-item, limit=10',
      'sortable' => true,
    ],
  ]);
});
 
/* Make sure to add the hook *before* the default admin process */
require $config->paths->adminTemplates . 'controller.php';

Any suggestions on how to solve this?

Thanks.

I'm using Dashboard to show some changelogs within the dashboard... but somehow repeaters don't respect that they aren't available as they would in normal pages.

<?php namespace Processwire;
$cl = pages()->get('template=dashChangelog');
$cles = $cl->changelogentry->sort('-date');
?>

That's how I get the main page for my Dashboard element and from there I do my usual foreach():

<?php foreach ($cles as $cle): ?>
<div class="cle">
<p><strong>📅 <?php echo date('Y-m-d', $cle->date); ?></strong></p>
<?php echo $cle->body; ?>
</div>
<?php endforeach; ?>

When I disable a repeater item... it still shows up.

In regular pages this wouldn't happen so... what do I have to change for the Dashboard?

Maybe I skipped a thought or two... but this confuses me.

I don't know anything about this in regards to the admin area but I found a fix that makes it work as expected. Maybe it's necessary in the admin, never needed it for repeaters in the frontend so far.

<?php namespace Processwire;
$cl = pages()->get('template=dashChangelog');
$cles = $cl->changelogentry->sort('-date')->filter("status=1");
?>

The additional ->filter("status=1") does the trick here.

Good catch. Now that I think about it, returning all repeaters makes sense in the admin context — otherwise you wouldn't be able to edit all repeater items on page edit screens. But as you said, you'll have to remember to properly mark/mask unpublished repeaters yourself.

      PageMjmlToHtml
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/PageMjmlToHtml
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/page-mjml-to-html/
      A module allowing you to write your Processwire template using MJML and get a converted HTML output using MJML API.
      This is considered to be in alpha and as such needs some testing before being used in production!

      About
      Created by Mailjet, MJML is a markup language making it a breeze to create newsletters displayed consistently across all email clients.
      Write your template using MJML combined with Processwire’s API and this module will automatically convert your code into a working newsletter thanks to their free-to-use Rest API.
      Prerequisite
      For this module to work you will need to get an API key and paste it in the module’s configuration.
      Usage
      Once your credentials are validated, select the template(s) in which you’re using the MJML syntax, save and go visualize your page(s) to see if everything’s good. You will either get error/warning messages or your email properly formatted and ready-to-go.
      From there you can copy/paste the raw generated code in an external mailing service or distribute your newsletter using ProMailer.
      Features
      The MJML output is cached to avoid repetitive API calls Not cached if there are errors/warnings Cleared if the page is saved Cleared if the template file has been modified A simple (dumb?) code viewer highlights lines with errors/warnings A button is added to quickly copy the raw code of the generated newsletter Not added if the page is rendered outside of a PageView Only visible to users with the page’s edit permission A shortcut is also added under “View” in the edit page to open the raw code in a new tab Multi-languages support
      Notes
      The code viewer is only shown to superusers. If there’s an error the page will display:
      Only its title for guests Its title and a message inviting to contact the administrator for editors If you are using the markup regions output strategy, it might be best to not append files to preserve your MJML markup before calling the MJML API. This option is available in the module’s settings.

      Hi guys!
      I'm a bit anxious because this is the first module I present! (beta modulo) But I will finally be able to share something with the community too! :)
      This is a BETA version of the PayPal payment system called: PayPal Commerce Platform.
      It is an advanced system (Business Pro account is needed) that brings various benefits in terms of fees and above all integrates direct payment with credit/debit cards. 
      The module integrates with Padloper 0.0.2, which is the current installation I'm using.
      This system integrates the classic PayPal buy button, the alternative or local payment method and the new payment system: credit/debit cards that doesn't go through the PayPal account. It is a Stripe-style payment, it connects directly with the bank and integrates 3D security validation.
      I say that it is a BETA because this module currently only works with Sandbox account, to put it live you need to change API url manually (manually for the moment).
      Because this module is not ready for live:
      I would like to have your opinion on how I built the module (is the first one I do). I don't want to share something that is not fish but I need a comparison with someone more experienced than me, for be sure that this is the best way to code the module.
      If you want to try this I created a git, you will find all the instructions for installation and correct operation. (Git has a MIT licensed)
      https://github.com/MarcooRo/processwire-PayPal-Commerce-Platform I hope I did something that you guys can like :)

      Hello Community!
      I found quite a  few ways or tools to style the admin or build a dashboard:
      - the new way with the .less compilation (reno style, rock style)
      - dashboard modules or tutorials how to build your own
      - admin on stereoids
      Vocabulary: With "admin like user" I do not mean a full admin but an user with quite a lot of priviledges ...
      My problem is that I do want to change the admin template for every (admin like) user in a different way. Or if I would build a bigger dashboard certain functionlity should only be available for a few (admin like) users but not for everyone.
      I would need different versions of the admin theme or the built dashboards for different admin users
      To start with a very simple example:
      Let's say I wanna give one (admin like) user a different background color (with css). 
      Let's say I wanna have an extra button or tab for some (admin like) user which another (admin like) user should not have
      How can I take advantage of processwire roles in all these examples I mentioned in the beginning?

      (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 !)
      FieldtypeQRCode
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      A simple fieldtype generating a QR Code from the public URL of the page, and more.
      Using the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase.

      Options
      In the field’s Details tab you can change between .gif or .svg formats. If you select .svg you will have the option to directly output the markup instead of a base64 image. SVG is the default.
      You can also change what is used to generate the QR code and even have several sources. The accepted sources (separated by a comma) are: httpUrl, editUrl, or the name of any text/URL/file/image field.
      If LanguageSupport is installed the compatible sources (httpUrl, text field, ...) will return as many QR codes as there are languages. Note however that when outputting on the front-end, only the languages visible to the user will be generated.
      Formatting
      Unformatted value
      When using $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field") it returns an array with the following structure:
      [ [ "label" => string, // label used in the admin "qr" => string, // the qrcode image "source" => string, // the source, as defined in the configuration "text" => string // and the text used to generate the qrcode ], ... ] Formatted value
      The formatted value is an <img>/<svg> (or several right next to each other). There is no other markup.
      Should you need the same markup as in the admin you could use:
      $field = $fields->get("qrcode_field"); $field->type->markupValue($page, $field, $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field")); But it’s a bit cumbersome, plus you need to import the FieldtypeQRCode's css/js. Best is to make your own markup using the unformatted value.
      Static QR code generator
      You can call FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCode to generate any QR code you want. Its arguments are:
      string $text bool $svg Generate the QR code as svg instead of gif ? (default=true) bool $markup If svg, output its markup instead of a base64 ? (default=false) Hooks
      Please have a look at the source code for more details about the hookable functions.
      Examples
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $page = $event->arguments("page"); $event->return = $page->title; // or could be: $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCodes", function($event) { $qrcodes = $event->return; // keep everything except the QR codes generated from editUrl foreach($qrcodes as $key => &$qrcode) { if($qrcode["source"] === "editUrl") { unset($qrcodes[$key]); } } unset($qrcode); $event->return = $qrcodes; })

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      Features
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.
