Haven't used this module myself yet, but mpdf has a TOC function: https://mpdf.github.io/what-else-can-i-do/table-of-contents.html

looks good, I will play with it and see what I can do 

As of the prepend/append custom php files to the foreach pdf generation, nevermind - I've just found a way which is working just fine:

$pdf->markupMain = '';
$pdf->markupMain .= wireRenderFile($this->config->paths->ProcessBook2pdf . '/templates_book/_coverFront.php'); //front page
foreach($pageArray as $item) {
	$pdf->markupMain .= wireRenderFile($this->config->paths->ProcessBook2pdf . '/templates_book/default.php', ["page" => $item]); //actual book content
}
$pdf->markupMain .= wireRenderFile($this->config->paths->ProcessBook2pdf . '/templates_book/_coverBack.php'); // back page

Stuck with pw-modal / pw-panel opening of generated pdf.

I have a pageArray containing selected pages, if I export the array in pdf from the current page (thus replacing the custom module page), it is all fine and correct.

If I use the same setting and try to export the pdf in modal window (by adding pw-modal in the button), well the modal window pops up but it show the frontend website 404 page, whereas in panel window (by adding pw-panel in the button) the pdf is rendered in panel but with missing pieces (not reading the $page instance!).

this is how I send the page array to feed the pages2pdf module:

foreach($pageArray as $item) {
	$pdf->markupMain .= wireRenderFile($this->config->paths->ProcessBook2pdf . '/templates_book/default_panel.php', ["page" => $item]);
}

therefore the problem is that even though I state ["page" => $item] from the pageArray, only in both modal and panel windows the $page variable in foreach loop is just the current module page!

@Wanze do you know why I cannot pass the pageArray to the pages2pdf to feed the modal/panel window? thanks

Anyone already tried the module with admin page/Process modules ?

I can get it working, but only by hacking the module.

Not surprised here, did you tried with another var name ? ($page is a reserved word in ProcessWire)

 

 

@Wanze With PHP-7.0.10 I get those warning :

@flydev I've tried with different variable than $page, same results. Please note that ["page" => $item] inside the above foreach loop works correctly if I submit the form, as the pdf is generated correctly in the new browser tab, with all $page as $items taken from the the pageArray. I mean, all php functions are working OK when the form is submitted, but I can't submit the form on a modal window.

The point here is that if I add pw-panel to the button class, then the foreach loop doesn't even fire, totally skipped! so I guess the following argument:

- The pw-panel and pw-modal windows don't let php foreach to fire (most likely because there is no real form submit), they both work just fine with only direct php statements. Moreover, $page variable is just the current module page.

For anyone who is having the red x problem with images, I was able to solve these missing images by doing 2 things:

1) If you are on https, convert image references to absolute (i think this is because the library uses http when replacing image references ?)


$rootPath = $pages->get(1)->httpUrl;
$body = str_replace("/site/assets/", $rootPath . "site/assets/" , $page->body);

2) Manually create the temp folder ("WirePDF") inside site/assets/cache/ – this folder did not exist and therefore the core library was throwing image errors.

Once these 2 things were completed, now the PDFs generate with the images correctly

Doesn't work for me :( .. and this doesn't work either:

<img src='<?=$config->urls->templates."images/logo.png"?>'>
/* or usign the url directly either */
<img src='http://www.domain.com/site/templates/images/logo.png'>

Before work's and the path is correct because in the other templates prints well

Everything happened after updating the module.

Did anyone successfully use @page in the stylesheet to e.g. set page size or margins? I don’t see anything happen if I add the following code block to templates/pages2pdf/styles.css:

@page {
    size: A5;
    margin: 10mm;
}

I’m using the dev branch of Pages2Pdf (mPDF v6.1).

I don't think this works. The size property for @page only accepts the values "auto", "portrait", "landscape" or an absolute width/height tuple. Named page formats aren't listed as supported.

You’re right. Bad example. But it also doesn’t work with width and height values like this:

@page {
    size: 100mm 150mm;
}

@Wanze Would it be possible to support:

$config->pagefileSecure = true;

If it is already supported? What am I supposed to do? I'm getting "missing image" icons only:

496338021_Bildschirmfoto2018-06-20um17_06_20.png.14e862ed671d98916eaca3775e3b8172.png

If i disable `$config->pagefileSecure` everything's working fine and I see the images in the PDF.

Warning:
Don't try to use image resizing and dynamically disable `$config->pagefileSecure` while rendering PDF's.
It will create the image variations in an unprotected directory.

Quick Workaround:

$filePath = $image->size(0, 100)->filename;
$fileType = mime_content_type($filePath);
$fileContents = file_get_contents($filePath);
$base64 = base64_encode($fileContents);
$out[] = "<img src=\"data:image/{$fileType};base64,{$base64}\">";

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
      Enjoy!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support for 60€ per hour (excl vat).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

    • By thomasaull
      Some time ago I created a site profile for creation of a REST API with ProcessWire. Since I kept struggeling with updating stuff between different projects which use this, I decided to convert it into a module. It is now ready for testing: https://github.com/thomasaull/RestApi
      Additionally I added a few small features:
      automatic creation of JWT Secret at module install routes can be flagged as auth: false, which makes them publicly accessible even though JWT Auth is activated in module settings To check things out, download and install the module and check the folder /site/api for examples.
      If you find any bugs or can think of improvements, please let me know!
