Pages2Pdf

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After reading this thread, I decided to make a module that helps generating PDF files of ProcessWire pages.

GitHub: https://github.com/wanze/Pages2Pdf

Modules Directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/pages2-pdf/

This module uses the mPDF library to generate the PDF files. It has fully UTF-8 and basic HTML/CSS support for rendering the PDF files.

The output is customizable with ProcessWire templates. 

Example

I've enabled generating PDF files for the skyscraper template of ryans Skyscrapers-profile with a template that outputs the data in a table along with the body text and the images:

one-atlantic-center-pdf-4177.pdf

Please take a look at the README on GitHub for instructions and further information/examples.

Cheers

Added the "module" tag and removed it from title.

Looks great! Would it be possible to render multiple pages in a single .pdf using this?

Thanks people,

Please report feedback or ideas for further improvements.

Yep. The pdf is generated from a ProcessWire template in /site/templates/pages2pdf/.

Think of it as a normal Pw template: You can use $page, $pages, $users and all other variables to search and output your

content. The only restriction is that you have limited html support, so make sure you use supported html

tags in TCPDF (see link in first post).

There's also another module which generates pdfs from the Admin:

Just dropping in to say that I'll definitely try this module out soon, looks very promising. Thanks for making this!

For the record, I've used mPDF in the past for creating PDF versions of pages. It's HTML and CSS support seemed superior compared to other libraries at the time, at least for my use cases. Might have to switch one site to use this module instead of mPDF just to see how they really compare.

Taking a look at your code I'm seeing quite a bit similarities with these libraries; for an example seem to have identical method names. Interesting. :)

Hi teppo,

Thanks.

This is very interesting, I didn't know mPDF before. Looks very promising if the html support is better plus the whole

library is very lightweight compared toTCPDF.

TCPDF and also mPDF are both extensions of FPDF. Some years ago, I used FPDF but the problem there

is the missung UTF-8 and HTML support.

As most of the libraries seem to depend on FPDF, this now has the advantage that one could easily exchange the library behind the module without changing much code.

Looking forward to your feedback! :)

Hi Wanze, great work and very useful! :)

I have one question: do you plan to embedd the FPDI-Extension into it?

I know it from working with FPDF. In the past FPDI-Extension couldn't bundled with TCPDF a long time because of the licence, but this has changed a few year ago.
 

Would be useful to upload or otherwise specify a PDF as background on a 'per-Template-Basis'. (<= uh, ugly Denglish)

Horst - thanks! :)

Never heard of the FPDI extension. I checked your link and read some docs on the website, but I'm not sure

how this should be integrated here.

Can you give me more details? :)

What do you mean with "background"? As far as I understand, FPDI is used to import pages from other

pdf's into your pdf.

Grüsse nach Deutschland!

Hi Wanze, yes with the FPDI extension you can import other PDFs, but in different ways. What I mean with 'as Background' and what I'm find very useful is, for example:

You can take a PDF with your e.g. Briefkopf , assuming you have a first page with all your stuff (Logo, adress, bankinfo, tax number, etc.) and a second page with less data (maybe a smaller version of your Logo and only name and phone number), and use it as background-layers:

// example use of FPDI-Extension with FPDF.

	$tplfile = 'C:/fpdf/templates/mein_briefkopf.pdf';
	$pagecount = $this->pdf->setSourceFile($tplfile);              // defining the sourcefile returns Pagenumber of it
	for($i=1;$i<=$pagecount;$i++)
	{
		$this->fpdiTemplates['tpl_s'.$i] = $this->pdf->ImportPage($i);     // import each page and assign it to a variable
	}
	$this->Parser_Opened = TRUE;
	$this->Use_Template = $this->fpdiTemplates['tpl_s1'];
	...                                                            // write own stuff to the first page
                                                                       // switch the Template to the second page for all
                                                                       // following pages (optional)
        $this->Use_Template = $this->fpdiTemplates['tpl_s2'];
        ... // create more pages

With the use of FPDI-Templates you can add graphical stuff to your pdf-pages with less effort.

On my website one can add images to a virtual lightbox and can download them as a PDF.

There are three template pages: one for the image pages, one with my contact-data and copyright notice! and optional one for user notes.

..., und viele Grüße in die Schweiz :)

Wow horst - that is super awesome; I'll have to revisit this, because i need something like this for a site i'm currently working on, where there is a product and we want to generate a slick product sheet, downloadable pdf using the existing PW content and images...

Hi Wanze, thanks for all your work on this, I'm excited to try it out.

Problem I have at the moment is the render call isn't outputting anything. I've definitely added my template in the module settings but there's no link or anything getting outputted.

Have you seen this issue before?

Thanks.

Hi onjegolders,

I just noticed that I forgot to add an 'echo' in front of the render call in my first post - updated.

It should be:

echo $modules->get('Pages2Pdf')->render();

Was this the issue? (hope so... :))

Yeah that sorted it thanks Wanze, I should have seen that!

Do you know what differences there are between this implementation and using HTML2PDF?

I have a very basic usage of that library and it seems to work "OK" but I'm guessing a PW way is better. Are there any other differences that you know of?

Thanks again for all your hard work Wanze.

No problem - thanks you for finding this one! ^-^

I've never used html2pdf before, but it looks like it's an addition on top of tcpdf - the framework that this module is using.

Don't know the differences exactly. This module just integrates TCPDF into ProcessWire, making it easier for you to setup

everything. However, it could be the case that html2pdf has better html support built in for rendering the pdfs than tcpdf.

The module handles creating / caching pdf's for you and you can output the content with Pw templates. This means,

you have the full Pw API available if needed.

If anyone can confirm that other libraries, e.g. html2pdf or mPDF have actually better html support than TCPDF, I'll switch the

framework behind the module.

hi wanze, i have a problem with this module.

When i use english characters is working fine and it exports successfully the pdfs.

But with the greek chars i get question marks.

is there any solution for this; i have search the tcpdf examples but i can't make it  to work

thanks.

Hi sakkoulas,

That's because the standard font set by the module does not have those characters included. I removed all fonts but the standard ones from the tcpdf folder so the module doesn't get too heavy.

You can do those steps:

  1. Download TCPDF
  2. Copy all files starting with freesans* or freeserif* to /site/modules/Pages2Pdf/tcpdf/fonts
  3. In your module configs, set freesans/freeserif under Default font

Then the greek characters work (make sure you enable debug mode or save the page to delete any cached pdfs).

I think this is the easiest solution. Disadvantage is that the pdf is a bit heavier due to this font which includes all unicode characters.

Another possibility is to convert a greek font to TCPDF according to the docs: http://www.tcpdf.org/fonts.php

Does this work for you?

      PageImage Manipulator, API for version 1 & 2

      The Page Image Manipulator is a module that let you in a first place do ImageManipulations with your PageImages. - And in a second place there is the possibility to let it work on any imagefile that exists in your servers filesystem, regardless if it is a 'known PW-image'.

      The Page Image Manipulator is a Toolbox for Users and Moduledevelopers. It is written to be as close to the Core ImageSizer as possible. Besides the GD-filterfunctions it contains resize, crop, canvas, rotate, flip, sharpen, unsharpMask and 3 watermark methods.



      How does it work?

      You can enter the ImageManipulator by calling the method pim2Load(). After that you can chain together how many actions in what ever order you like. If your manipulation is finished, you call pimSave() to write the memory Image into a diskfile. pimSave() returns the PageImage-Object of the new written file so we are able to further use any known PW-image property or method. This way it integrates best into the ProcessWire flow.

      The three examples above put out the same visual result: a grayscale image with a width of 240px. Only the filenames will slightly differ.

      You have to define a name-prefix that you pass with the pimLoad() method. If the file with that prefix already exists, all operations are skipped and only the desired PageImage-Object gets returned by pimSave(). If you want to force recreation of the file, you can pass as second param a boolean true: pim2Load('myPrefix', true).

      You may also want to get rid of all variations at once? Than you can call $pageimage->pim2Load('myPrefix')->removePimVariations()!

      A complete list of all methods and actions are at the end of this post.
       
      You may also visit the post with tips & examples for users and module developers.


      How to Install
      Download the module Place the module files in /site/modules/PageImageManipulator/ In your admin, click Modules > Check for new modules Click "install" for PageImageManipulator Done! There are no configuration settings needed, just install and use it. Download    (version 0.2.0)
      get it from the Modules Directory History of origins

      Page Image Manipulator - Methods

      * pimLoad  or  pim2Load, depends on the version you use!

      pimLoad($prefix, $param2=optional, $param3=optional)
      param 1: $prefix - (string) = mandatory! param 2: mixed, $forceRecreation or $options param 3: mixed, $forceRecreation or $options return: pim - (class handle) $options - (array) default is empty, see the next method for a list of valid options! $forceRecreation - (bool) default is false It check if the desired image variation exists, if not or if forceRecreation is set to true, it prepares all settings to get ready for image manipulation
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * setOptions

      setOptions(array $options)
      param: $options - (array) default is empty return: pim - (class handle) Takes an array with any number valid options / properties and set them by replacing the class-defaults and / or the global config defaults optionally set in the site/config.php under imageSizerOptions or imageManipulatorOptions.

      valid options are:
      quality = 1 - 100 (integer) upscaling = true | false (boolean) cropping = true | false (boolean) autoRotation =true | false (boolean) sharpening = 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong' (string) bgcolor = (array) css rgb or css rgba, first three values are integer 0-255 and optional 4 value is float 0-1, - default is array(255,255,255,0) thumbnailColorizeCustom = (array) rgb with values for colorize, integer -255 - 255 (this can be used to set a custom color when working together with Thumbnails-Module)
        outputFormat = 'gif' | 'jpg' | 'png' (Attention: outputFormat cannot be specified as global option in $config->imageManipulatorOptions!) set {singleOption} ($value)
      For every valid option there is also a single method that you can call, like setQuality(90), setUpscaling(false), etc.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * pimSave

      pimSave()
      return: PageImage-Object If a new image is hold in memory, it saves the current content into a diskfile, according to the settings of filename, imagetype, targetFilename and outputFormat. Returns a PageImage-Object!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * release

      release()
      return: void (nothing) if you, for what ever reason, first load image into memory but than do not save it, you should call release() to do the dishes! 😉 If you use pimSave() to leave the ImageManipulator, release() is called automatically.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getOptions

      getOptions()
      return: associative array with all final option values example:
      ["autoRotation"] bool(true) ["upscaling"] bool(false) ["cropping"] bool(true) ["quality"] int(90) ["sharpening"] string(6) "medium" ["targetFilename"] string(96) "/htdocs/site/assets/files/1124/pim_prefix_filename.jpg" ["outputFormat"] string(3) "jpg" get {singleOption} ()
      For every valid option there is also a single method that you can call, like getQuality(), getUpscaling(), etc. See method setOptions for a list of valid options!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getImageInfo

      getImageInfo()
      return: associative array with useful informations of source imagefile example:
      ["type"] string(3) "jpg" ["imageType"] int(2) ["mimetype"] string(10) "image/jpeg" ["width"] int(500) ["height"] int(331) ["landscape"] bool(true) ["ratio"] float(1.5105740181269) ["bits"] int(8) ["channels"] int(3) ["colspace"] string(9) "DeviceRGB" -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getPimVariations

      getPimVariations()
      return: array of Pageimages Collect all pimVariations of this Pageimage as a Pageimages array of Pageimage objects. All variations created by the core ImageSizer are not included in the collection.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * removePimVariations

      removePimVariations()
      return: pim - (class handle) Removes all image variations that was created using the PIM, all variations that are created by the core ImageSizer are left untouched!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------
      * width

      width($dst_width, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) param: $auto_sharpen - (boolean) default is true was deleted with version 0.0.8, - sorry for breaking compatibility param: $sharpen_mode - (string) possible: 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong', default is 'soft' return: pim - (class handle) Is a call to resize where you prioritize the width, like with pageimage. Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * height

      height($dst_height, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_height - (integer) param: $auto_sharpen - (boolean) default is true was deleted with version 0.0.8, - sorry for breaking compatibility param: $sharpen_mode - (string) possible: 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong', default is 'soft' return: pim - (class handle) Is a call to resize where you prioritize the height, like with pageimage. Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * resize

      resize($dst_width=0, $dst_height=0, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) default is 0 param: $dst_height - (integer) default is 0 param: $auto_sharpen - (boolean) default is true was deleted with version 0.0.8, - sorry for breaking compatibility param: $sharpen_mode - (string) possible: 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong', default is 'soft' return: pim - (class handle) Is a call to resize where you have to set width and / or height, like with pageimage size(). Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * stepResize

      stepResize($dst_width=0, $dst_height=0)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) default is 0 param: $dst_height - (integer) default is 0 return: pim - (class handle) this performs a resizing but with multiple little steps, each step followed by a soft sharpening. That way you can get better result of sharpened images.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * sharpen

      sharpen($mode='soft')
      param: $mode - (string) possible values 'none' | 'soft'| 'medium'| 'strong' return: pim - (class handle) Applys sharpening to the current memory image. You can call it with one of the three predefined pattern, or you can pass an array with your own pattern.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * unsharpMask

      unsharpMask($amount, $radius, $threshold)
      param: $amount - (integer) 0 - 500, default is 100 param: $radius - (float) 0.1 - 50, default is 0.5 param: $threshold - (integer) 0 - 255, default is 3 return: pim - (class handle) Applys sharpening to the current memory image like the equal named filter in photoshop.
      Credit for the used unsharp mask algorithm goes to Torstein Hønsi who has created the function back in 2003.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * smooth

      smooth($level=127)
      param: $level - (integer) 1 - 255, default is 127 return: pim - (class handle) Smooth is the opposite of sharpen. You can define how strong it should be applied, 1 is low and 255 is strong.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * blur

      blur()
      return: pim - (class handle) Blur is like smooth, but cannot called with a value. It seems to be similar like a result of smooth with a value greater than 200.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * crop

      crop($pos_x, $pos_y, $width, $height)
      param: $pos_x - (integer) start position left param: $pos_y - (integer) start position top param: $width - (integer) horizontal length of desired image part param: $height - (integer) vertical length of desired image part return: pim - (class handle) This method cut out a part of the memory image.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * canvas

      canvas($width, $height, $bgcolor, $position, $padding)
      param: $width = mixed, associative array with options or integer, - mandatory! param: $height = integer, - mandatory if $width is integer! param: $bgcolor = array with rgb or rgba, - default is array(255, 255, 255, 0) param: $position = one out of north, northwest, center, etc, - default is center param: $padding = integer as percent of canvas length, - default is 0 return: pim - (class handle) This method creates a canvas according to the given width and height and position the memory image onto it.
      You can pass an associative options array as the first and only param. With it you have to set width and height and optionally any other valid param. Or you have to set at least width and height as integers.
      Hint: If you want use transparency with rgba and your sourceImage isn't of type PNG, you have to define 'png' as outputFormat with your initially options array or, for example, like this: $image->pimLoad('prefix')->setOutputFormat('png')->canvas(300, 300, array(210,233,238,0.5), 'c', 5)->pimSave()
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * flip

      flip($vertical=false)
      param: $vertical - (boolean) default is false return: pim - (class handle) This flips the image horizontal by default. (mirroring)

      rotate($degree, $backgroundColor=127)
      param: $degree - (integer) valid is -360 0 360 param: $backgroundColor - (integer) valid is 0 - 255, default is 127 return: pim - (class handle) This rotates the image. Positive values for degree rotates clockwise, negative values counter clockwise. If you use other values than 90, 180, 270, the additional space gets filled with the defined background color.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * brightness

      brightness($level)
      param: $level - (integer) -255 0 255 return: pim - (class handle) You can adjust brightness by defining a value between -255 and +255. Zero lets it unchanged, negative values results in darker images and positive values in lighter images.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * contrast

      contrast($level)
      param: $level - (integer) -255 0 255 return: pim - (class handle) You can adjust contrast by defining a value between -255 and +255. Zero lets it unchanged, negative values results in lesser contrast and positive values in higher contrast.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * grayscale

      grayscale()
      return: pim - (class handle) Turns an image into grayscale. Remove all colors.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * sepia

      sepia()
      return: pim - (class handle) Turns the memory image into a colorized grayscale image with a predefined rgb-color that is known as "sepia".
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * colorize

      colorize($anyColor)
      param: $anyColor - (array) like css rgb or css rgba - but with values for rgb -255 - +255,  - value for alpha is float 0 - 1, 0 = transparent  1 = opaque return: pim - (class handle) Here you can adjust each of the RGB colors and optionally the alpha channel. Zero lets the channel unchanged whereas negative values results in lesser / darker parts of that channel and higher values in stronger saturisation of that channel.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * negate

      negate()
      return: pim - (class handle) Turns an image into a "negative".
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      pixelate($blockSize=3)
      param: $blockSize - (integer) 1 - ??, default is 3 return: pim - (class handle) This apply the well known PixelLook to the memory image. It is stronger with higher values for blockSize.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      emboss()
      return: pim - (class handle) This apply the emboss effect to the memory image.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * edgedetect

      edgedetect()
      return: pim - (class handle) This apply the edge-detect effect to the memory image.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getMemoryImage

      getMemoryImage()
      return: memoryimage - (GD-Resource) If you want apply something that isn't available with that class, you simply can check out the current memory image and apply your image - voodoo - stuff
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * setMemoryImage

      setMemoryImage($memoryImage)
      param: $memoryImage - (GD-Resource) return: pim - (class handle) If you are ready with your own image stuff, you can check in the memory image for further use with the class.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkLogo

      watermarkLogo($pngAlphaImage, $position='center', $padding=2)
      param: $pngAlphaImage - mixed [systemfilepath or PageImageObject] to/from a PNG with transparency param: $position - (string) is one out of: N, E, S, W, C, NE, SE, SW, NW,
      - or: north, east, south, west, center, northeast, southeast, southwest, northwest
      default is 'center' param: $padding - (integer) 0 - 25, default is 5, padding to the borders in percent of the images length! return: pim - (class handle) You can pass a transparent image with its filename or as a PageImage to the method. If the watermark is bigger than the destination-image, it gets shrinked to fit into the targetimage. If it is a small watermark image you can define the position of it:
      NW - N - NE | | | W - C - E | | | SW - S - SE  
      The easiest and best way I have discovered to apply a big transparency watermark to an image is as follows:
      create a square transparent png image of e.g. 2000 x 2000 px, place your mark into the center with enough (percent) of space to the borders. You can see an example here! The $pngAlphaImage get centered and shrinked to fit into the memory image. No hassle with what width and / or height should I use?, how many space for the borders?, etc.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      PageImage Manipulator - Example Output


    • By d'Hinnisdaël
      Format Datetime fields as Carbon instances.
      You can find the latest release and the complete readme on Github.
      Installation
      composer require daun/datetime-carbon-format Usage
      All Datetime fields will now be formatted as Carbon instances instead of strings. Some examples:
      // $page->date is a Datetime field // Output format: j/n/Y echo $page->date; // 20/10/2020 echo $page->date->add('7 days'); // 27/10/2020 echo $page->date->format('l, F j'); // Monday, October 20 echo $page->date->year; // 2020 echo $page->date->diffForHumans(); // 28 minutes ago Frontend only
      The ProcessWire admin seems to expect datetime fields to be strings. This module will only return Carbon instances on frontend page views.
      Date output format
      When casting a Carbon instance to a string (usually when outputting the field in a template), the field's date output format will be respected.

      PS. I remember reading about a Carbon module in a recent newsletter, but couldn't find it anywhere. Was that you, @bernhard?

      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.
      Warning: This module requires ProcessWire 3.0.167 which is above the current stable master release at the moment.
      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

      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 multible repeater items 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 Configurable dialogs for copy and paste 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 Attention, please note!
      Nested repeaters cannot be supported technically. Therefore a check is made to prevent this. However, a nested repeater can only be detected if the field name ends for example with "_repeater1234". For example, if your MatrixRepeater field is named like this: "content_repeater" or "content_repeater123", this field is identified as nested and the module does not load. In version 2.0.1 the identification has been changed so that a field ending with the name repeater is only detected as nested if at least a two-digit number sequence follows. But to avoid this problem completely, make sure that your repeater matrix field does NOT end with the name "repeater".
