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.

      (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.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      Visit https://www.tawk.to and create an account. It's free! At some point you will reach a page where you can copy the required JavaScript-code.

      Open the module settings and paste the JavaScript-code into the field as shown below. Click "Submit" and that's all.

      Open the module settings
      The settings for this module are located int the menu Modules=>Configure=>LiveChatTawkTo.
