Wow, just checked those examples on github. they're looking really good..maybe I'll change my custom mpdf thing to your wirepdf. 

But I'm doing screencasts for the customer and we're going live pretty soon, so no time right now..

nice work again wanze :) headsup

Great input, thanks Wanze!

At the moment I'm waiting for the go from my client. They haven't signed off the project yet. So I'm still in the research phase. Once I start real work on the project I surely will consider your recommendations and will then keep you updated on my progress.

WirePDF module looks promising.

Have you ever experimented with client side PDF creation libraries like https://github.com/MrRio/jsPDF ?

Thanks Can, good luck with your project :)

The new version is now merged into the master branch, I also updated the README on GitHub.

With v.1.1.1, a new config option was introduced: Creation mode
This setting controls when the PDF files are generated and stored for caching purposes. The default value is still "on click", right before downloading a PDF file.

Now, the PDF files can also be created when saving pages in the ProcessWire admin. This new option is preferable if the PDFs are heavy and need some time for processing - the clients won't have to wait for it.

Please post any problems or questions regarding updating the module to the new version in this thread.

You're welcome.

I don't have any experience with client side PDF creation tools. I have done some work with TCPDF in the past and now mPDF because the HTML/CSS support is better though still limited. If you need very complex layouts then maybe it is better to not use HTML at all but the native stuff from these libraries, e.g. positioning the cursor and output text/shapes/images exactly where you need it.

Personally, I prefer a server-side solution because JS can be manipulated by the visitor, not sure how to deal with saving PDF files then. On the other hand, if the PDF files are always created "on the fly", why not - if enough browser support is given.

@Wanze

I set up a quick and dirty test for jsPDF library here: http://jspdf.webseiten-fuer-alle.de/

Underneath "Choose example" select "**NEW: addHTML()" and you will see the result instantly

It handles floating images and divs very well.

I like the way you can just drop in a complete HTML page and the result seems to be almost exactly what you see in the browser. So no more extra pdf templates. Definitely looks promising.

As for saving the pdfs, that's a good question. Browser support seems to be fine.

@nfil: just a quick thought: you may try to use the file:/// protocol (with three slashes), e.g.

echo "<TD WIDTH='25%'><img src=\"file:///{$someImgThumb->filename}\" width=\"{$someImgThumb->width}\" height=\"{$someImgThumb->height}\" /></TD>";

Haven't tested and don't know if it can work with mpdf, - just a quick thought. :)

@horst Thanks horst but the file:/// protocol doesn't seem to work but I will keep the tip in mind for other use in PW  :)

hello wanze. Thanks for the update. I have tested it, but now it does not render the images, I have this is my template:

if (count($page->images)) {
$someImages = $page->images->slice(0, 4);
foreach ($someImages as $someImg) {
	$someImgThumb = $someImg->size(290, 195);
	echo "<TD WIDTH='25%'><img src=\"{$someImgThumb->url}\" width=\"{$someImgThumb->width}\" height=\"{$someImgThumb->height}\" /></TD>";
}
}

I followed your instructions, is there some other way to render the images?

update: the new updated module was not generating the images in MAMP is working fine on a live host.

I can now also view the pdfs as a guest on the live host, in the previous version, even after saving the page as a superuser, after login off I could not view the pdfs in the live host. It seems to be working very well now. Thanks again waze for this great module.

Hi nfil,

Thanks and good to hear that it works on the live host. Though it's strange that it does not work locally, images are working fine here, also using MAMP. Using the file:// protocol should not be necessary. Another possibilty could be that you'v seen a cached version, if you enable the debug mode the module makes sure you always get a fresh PDF file.

Yes Wanze, thanks for keeping an excellent support. After a few tests I think it was indeed related with cache, it is working now in MAMP with PW 2.4.8 but at the time I was uploading the site from MAMP to a live server and noticed some weird behaviour using MAMP. I copied the live host version today and tested it today again on MAMP and it works flawlessly.  :)

I've this image that is printed to the pdf if the value of the field is filled in the backend and its above 500000 but there are two variables, if one is not populated it will go to the next condition and print the value. How do I go about this one? Thanks.

  // image for output
  $visalogo = $pages->get("/")->logo_eurovisa;
  // if visavalue_b field is not populated it will show visavalue_a
  $visavalue_a = $page->price_a;
  $visavalue_b = $page->price_b;
  $count = "count()>1";
  // $visavalue_b is populated now check if it is greater than 500000
  if ($visavalue_b->($count)>=500000) {
    echo "<img src=\"{$visalogo->url}\" width=\"300\" height=\"176\" />"; 
    } else {
  if ($visavalue_a>=500000); { echo "<img src=\"{$visalogo->url}\" width=\"300\" height=\"176\" />"; 
  }
 }

It should be something like this, count is for numberOfimagesChildren etc but I'm a newbie.

// image for output  
$visalogo = $pages->get("/")->logo_eurovisa; 
// if visavalue_b field is not populated it will show visavalue_a  
$visavalue_a = $page->price_a;  $visavalue_b = $page->price_b;  
// value is populated and greater than  
if(empty($visavalue_b)) {  $va = $visavalue_a>=500000;  
if ($va)   echo "";  }  $vb = $visavalue_b>=500000; 
if ($vb) {  echo "";  }
Sorry for being a bit off topic.

Hi nfil,

I'm not sure, what's the issue? Is it the image that is not working?

If it is not related to mpdf, try to put your code in a "normal" Pw template under /site/templates/ and check if it works there.

When everything's correct, this module should render the same output. If there are differences, that is due to limited HTML/CSS support, but the images should work.

The first code example contains some errors, for example you can't write this:

$count = "count()>1";
  // $visavalue_b is populated now check if it is greater than 500000
  if ($visavalue_b->($count)>=500000) {

The second example contains no image output?

Sorry I don't have time to debug, I'm away some weeks from tomorrow and I need to pack all my stuff :)

If you have questions to general stuff Pw or PHP related, I'm sure other members can help you in this awesome forum somwhere.

Cheers

Hello wanze in the second example I was writing it on a tablet and some code was lost.

It's a over complicated snippet by a newbie like me to check if a field is empty than render another, also checking if both of these fields are higher or equal to 500000

  // image for output
  $visalogo = $pages->get("/")->logo_eurovisa;
  // if visavalue_b field is not populated it will show visavalue_a
  $visavalue_a = $page->price_a;
  $visavalue_b = $page->price_b;
  // value is populated and greater than
  if(empty($visavalue_b)) {
  $va = $visavalue_a>=500000;
  if ($va) 
  echo "<img src=\"{$visalogo->url}\" width=\"300\" height=\"176\" />";
  }
  $vb = $visavalue_b>=500000;
  if ($vb) {
  echo "<img src=\"{$visalogo->url}\" width=\"300\" height=\"176\" />";
  }

hey guys, im using Pages2Pdf v1.0.1 and its been great as far, I have two questions:

echo '<table>';
  foreach($images as $image){
    $imageSmall = $image;
    echo '<tr><td><img id="'. $image->basename . $image->created .'" src="'. $imageSmall->url. '" /></td></tr>';
  }
echo '</table>';
<style>
.head {
	font-family: Times;
	font-weight: bold;
	font-size: 13pt;
}
table{
	text-align: center;
	vertical-align: middle;
	padding: 0;
	width: 100%;
}
img{
	margin: 0 auto;
}
</style>
  • Is there a way of bypassing the cache and making a request for a new pdf everytime? so that it creates a pdf with a timestamp maybe?

Hi, im on mobile sorry for short answers.

1) not sure why it happens. You could try to update the module. The new pdf engine behind has better html and css support. You'd need to separate your css into a separate css file thought, see instructions on one of my earlier posts.

2) setting the cache time to zero will always generate a new pdf file.

Cheers

Hello wanze.

I have a datetime field in my page with the Date/Time Output Format Code j/n/y

PW outputs the formatted date, yet Pages2Pdf will not render the j/n/y format.
 
Have you tried creating a pdf with a datetime field? Or am I doing something wrong. Thanks.
 
update: I get different results, this was probably due to PW dev 2.4.5 I tested your module with PW 2.5 and seems to be fine.

For anyone getting a screen full with “Warning: Cannot modify header information”

This is because you probably have Processwire in debug mode ($config->debug = true;)

Thx WillyC this old thread gave the answer

And thank you too Wanze for this great module.

Hello.

i'm trying to install this module, but i have an error: 

Module is not installable because not all required dependencies are currently met.

says it need the module "WirePDF". In the documentation, says: 

WirePDF

This module is a wrapper around the mPDF library. It is used by the Pages2Pdf module to create and store the PDF files, but can also be used independently to create/store/download PDF files.

how do i create this wrapping, and make the module work?

thanks

Hi Isag,

The WirePDF module is included in Pages2Pdf, you should find it in your modules list.

After installing "WirePDF", you should be able to install "Pages2Pdf"... I'm not sure why this is not working out of the box, I thought that ProcessWire would install the dependencies automatically, if available. What version of Pw are you running?

Cheers

@wanze: this may depend of the increased or somehow changed usage of modules cache since PW 2.5.

@Isag: Just for testing: I would try to hit refresh in the modules section manually. And then give it a new go.

@wanze: Maybe you can add a $this->modules->resetCache(); to the first line of your install routine?

@Isag: which PW version you are using? PW 2.5.??

@lsag: I had the same issue trying to install via classname just now, on v2.5, but it installs fine if you just download from the module page and manually upload to your PW.

Hello. Could someone tell me what i have to put in this template file? is it like a normal processwire template?

checking the default template, i see 

$page->body

shouldn't this get me the entire content of the <body> tag? instead i get, as the only content, the page's url.

Thanks for the patience to this noob

H Isag,

In the template files inside /site/templates/pages2pdf you put the markup that is rendered in the PDF file. It's like a "normal" ProcessWire template.

The $page->body does not output the content of the body tag. It outputs the value of a field called "body". This is just an example, you can output other fields and use the ProcessWire API to build your output.

Cheers

Hello @ all,

I have setted up a multilanguage site and the Pages2pdf module provides the pdf for a page only in one language. Has someone tried to get one pdf-document for each language and how?

I cant figure out how this could be achieved (if it is possible).

Best regards Jürgen

        when working with PW version 2.6+, please use Pim2, not Pim!
        read more here  on how to change from the older to the newer version in existing sites
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      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)
      If the boolean param is set to true, it flips the image vertical instead.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * rotate

      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

      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

      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.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkLogoTiled

      watermarkLogoTiled($pngAlphaImage)
      param: $pngAlphaImage - mixed [systemfilepath or PageImageObject] to/from a PNG with transparency return: pim - (class handle) Here you have to pass a tile png with transparency (e.g. something between 150-300 px?) to your bigger images. It got repeated all over the memory image starting at the top left corner.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkText

      watermarkText($text, $size=10, $position='center', $padding=2, $opacity=50, $trueTypeFont=null)
      param: $text - (string) the text that you want to display on the image param: $size - (integer) 1 - 100, unit = points, good value seems to be around 10 to 15 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 2, padding to the borders in percent of the images length! param: $opacity- (integer) 1 - 100, default is 50 param: $trueTypeFont - (string) systemfilepath to a TrueTypeFont, default is freesansbold.ttf (is GPL & comes with the module) return: pim - (class handle) Here you can display (dynamic) text with transparency over the memory image. You have to define your text, and optionally size, position, padding, opacity for it. And if you don't like the default font, freesansbold, you have to point to a TrueTypeFont-File of your choice.

      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.

      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".
