Inspired by a recent question.

Image Crop Ratios

Allows preset aspect ratios to be defined per image field for the ProcessWire image crop tool.

The module adds a select dropdown to the crop tool. Choose an aspect ratio and the crop area will be fixed to that ratio.

Screencast

screencast

Installation

Install the Image Crop Ratios module.

Configuration

  • Default aspect ratios for all image fields can be defined in the module config.
  • Aspect ratios for specific image fields can be defined on the Input tab of the field settings.
  • You can override the ratio settings in template context if needed.
  • Insert a hyphen as the first item in the ratio settings unless you want to force a ratio to be applied to the crop tool. The hyphen represents a blank option that allows a free crop area to be drawn.

Usage

  1. Click the "Crop" link on the details view of an image thumbnail.
  2. Click the "Crop" icon at the top of the editor window.
  3. Choose an option from the "Ratio" select dropdown.

@Robin S I voted for that in 2016... Why did that take so long? 😜

Just kidding 😉 Thank you for creating this and sharing it with us! 🙂

Thanks a lot! This is a super easy solution. I don't want to let the user change the aspect ratio and this does it just well. Excellent job. Thank you again.

@Robin S, a side question here: Do you know a way how to make the labels multilanguage aware?

With the CAI3, I also use a textareafield like yours in the configpage. It would be pretty fine, if there would be an easy to maintain way for the users / devs to translate the labelnames.

Sorry, I never get to work on multi-language sites here in NZ so I don't know about multi-language features.

What labels are you talking about? (Maybe better in a new thread...)

@Robin SThank you for a perfectly timed module!

I have a wishlist suggestion - as well as the fixed ratios, would it be feasible/possible to also include a minimum size for the crop area?

For example, a banner image (used in your own screencast demo) might have a minimum width requirement.  It is easy to shrink a larger cropped area, but obviously, a smaller area can not be "embiggened" without pixelation.

Maybe it could be specified along with the ratio  (e.g., using a comma):

Banner Image=2:1,800:400

Technically, you'd only need to specify the length of the longest side.

As far as I can see this isn't possible/practical. Although the cropper library does allow for "minCropBoxWidth" and "minCropBoxHeight" options these can only be set when the cropper is initialised. To change the options you have to destroy the existing cropper and reinitialise it with complete new options, but the library provides no ability to get the existing options (as supplied by the PW core) before destroying the old cropper. And I don't want to duplicate and maintain ProcessPageEditImageSelect.js to be able to recreate all the options.

The options that can be updated dynamically are very limited - only setAspectRatio() and setDragMode() methods are available. If anyone can see a way to set minCropBoxWidth and minCropBoxHeight dynamically then let me know.

So as @horst suggested, use CroppableImage instead if you need to set minimum crop sizes.

@Robin S Awesome module. I never understood why this functionality is not in the core. 🤷‍♂️ Thank you for implementing this feature! I sent you a pull request on GitHub, with a bugfix regarding multilanguage setups and float conversion, small performance tweaks, and support for repeaters! Best regards.

Hey @Robin S

you're right about your modifications for the repeater. Regarding the float conversion, I have described the problem in detail on GitHub. I suggested another solution. I also added support for CKEditor inline images in a new PR. All info and changes can be read here: https://github.com/Toutouwai/ImageCropRatios/pull/3

      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.

      TrelloWire
      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.
