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

      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 Changelog

      A new module that hasn't had a lot of testing yet. Please do your own testing before deploying on any production website.
      Custom Paths
      Allows any page to have a custom path/URL.
      Note: Custom Paths is incompatible with the core LanguageSupportPageNames module. I have no experience working with LanguageSupportPageNames or multi-language sites in general so I'm not in a position to work out if a fix is possible. If anyone with multi-language experience can contribute a fix it would be much appreciated!
      Screenshot

      Usage
      The module creates a field named custom_path on install. Add the custom_path field to the template of any page you want to set a custom path for. Whatever path is entered into this field determines the path and URL of the page ($page->path and $page->url). Page numbers and URL segments are supported if these are enabled for the template, and previous custom paths are managed by PagePathHistory if that module is installed.
      The custom_path field appears on the Settings tab in Page Edit by default but there is an option in the module configuration to disable this if you want to position the field among the other template fields.
      If the custom_path field is populated for a page it should be a path that is relative to the site root and that starts with a forward slash. The module prevents the same custom path being set for more than one page.
      The custom_path value takes precedence over any ProcessWire path. You can even override the Home page by setting a custom path of "/" for a page.
      It is highly recommended to set access controls on the custom_path field so that only privileged roles can edit it: superuser-only is recommended.
      It is up to the user to set and maintain suitable custom paths for any pages where the module is in use. Make sure your custom paths are compatible with ProcessWire's $config and .htaccess settings, and if you are basing the custom path on the names of parent pages you will probably want to have a strategy for updating custom paths if parent pages are renamed or moved.
      Example hooks to Pages::saveReady
      You might want to use a Pages::saveReady hook to automatically set the custom path for some pages. Below are a couple of examples.
      1. In this example the start of the custom path is fixed but the end of the path will update dynamically according to the name of the page:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'my_template') { $page->custom_path = "/some-custom/path-segments/$page->name/"; } }); 2. The Custom Paths module adds a new Page::realPath method/property that can be used to get the "real" ProcessWire path to a page that might have a custom path set. In this example the custom path for news items is derived from the real ProcessWire path but a parent named "news-items" is removed:
      $pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', function(HookEvent $event) { $page = $event->arguments(0); if($page->template == 'news_item') { $page->custom_path = str_replace('/news-items/', '/', $page->realPath); } }); Caveats
      The custom paths will be used automatically for links created in CKEditor fields, but if you have the "link abstraction" option enabled for CKEditor fields (Details > Markup/HTML (Content Type) > HTML Options) then you will see notices from MarkupQA warning you that it is unable to resolve the links.
      Installation
      Install the Custom Paths module.
      Uninstallation
      The custom_path field is not automatically deleted when the module is uninstalled. You can delete it manually if the field is no longer needed.

      Hey folks!
      I'm happy to finally introduce a project I've been working on for quite a while now: it's called Wireframe, and it is an output framework for ProcessWire.
      Note that I'm posting this in the module development area, maily because this project is still in rather early stage. I've built a couple of sites with it myself, and parts of the codebase have been powering some pretty big and complex sites for many years now, but this should still be considered a soft launch 🙂
      --
      Long story short, Wireframe is a module that provides the "backbone" for building sites (and apps) with ProcessWire using an MVC (or perhaps MVVM... one of those three or four letter acronyms anyway) inspired methodology. You could say that it's an output strategy, but I prefer the term "output framework", since in my mind the word "strategy" means something less tangible. A way of doing things, rather than a tool that actually does things.
      Wireframe (the module) provides a basic implementation for some familiar MVC concepts, such as Controllers and a View layer – the latter of which consists of layouts, partials, and template-specific views. There's no "model" layer, since in this context ProcessWire is the model. As a module Wireframe is actually quite simple – not even nearly the biggest one I've built – but there's still quite a bit of stuff to "get", so I've put together a demo & documentation site for it at https://wireframe-framework.com/.
      In addition to the core module, I'm also working on a couple of site profiles based on it. My current idea is actually to keep the module very light-weight, and implement most of the "opinionated" stuff in site profiles and/or companion modules. For an example MarkupMenu (which I released a while ago) was developed as one of those "companion modules" when I needed a menu module to use on the site profiles.
      Currently there are two public site profiles based on Wireframe:
      site-wireframe-docs is the demo&docs site mentioned above, just with placeholder content replaced with placeholder content. It's not a particularly complex site, but I believe it's still a pretty nice way to dig into the Wireframe module. site-wireframe-boilerplate is a boilerplate (or starter) site profile based on the docs site. This is still very much a work in progress, but essentially I'm trying to build a flexible yet full-featured starter profile you can just grab and start building upon. There will be a proper build process for resources, it will include most of the basic features one tends to need from site to site, etc. --
      Requirements and getting started:
      Wireframe can be installed just like any ProcessWire module. Just clone or download it to your site/modules/ directory and install. It doesn't, though, do a whole lot of stuff on itself – please check out the documentation site for a step-by-step guide on setting up the directory structure, adding the "bootstrap file", etc. You may find it easier to install one of the site profiles mentioned above, but note that this process involves the use of Composer. In the case of the site profiles you can install ProcessWire as usual and download or clone the site profile directory into your setup, but after that you should run "composer install" to get all the dependencies – including the Wireframe module – in place. Hard requirements for Wireframe are ProcessWire 3.0.112 and PHP 7.1+. The codebase is authored with current PHP versions in mind, and while running it on 7.0 may be possible, anything below that definitely won't work. A feature I added just today to the Wireframe module is that in case ProcessWire has write access to your site/templates/ directory, you can use the module settings screen to create the expected directories automatically. Currently that's all, and the module won't – for an example – create Controllers or layouts for you, so you should check out the site profiles for examples on these. (I'm probably going to include some additional helper features in the near future.)
      --
      This project is loosely based on an earlier project called pw-mvc, i.e. the main concepts (such as Controllers and the View layer) are very similar. That being said, Wireframe is a major upgrade in terms of both functionality and architecture: namespaces and autoloader support are now baked in, the codebase requires PHP 7, Controllers are classes extending \Wireframe\Controller (instead of regular "flat" PHP files), implementation based on a module instead of a collection of drop-in files, etc.
      While Wireframe is indeed still in a relatively early stage (0.3.0 was launched today, in case version numbers matter) for the most part I'm happy with the way it works, and likely won't change it too drastically anytime soon – so feel free to give it a try, and if you do, please let me know how it went. I will continue building upon this project, and I am also constantly working on various side projects, such as the site profiles and a few unannounced helper modules.
      I should probably add that while Wireframe is not hard to use, it is more geared towards those interested in "software development" type methodology. With future updates to the module, the site profiles, and the docs I hope to lower the learning curve, but certain level of "developer focus" will remain. Although of course the optimal outcome would be if I could use this project to lure more folks towards that end of the spectrum... 🙂

      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire is a module to log page visits of the CMS. The records including some basic information like IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Please note that this module doesn't claim to be the best or most accurate.
      Advantages
      One of the biggest advantage is that this module doesn't require any external service like Google Analytics or similar. You don't have to modify your templates either. There is also no JavaScript or image required.
      Disadvantages
      There is only one disadvantage. This module doesn't record visits if the browser loads the page from its browser cache. To prevent the browser from loading the page from its cache, add the following meta tags to the header of your page:
      <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate" /> <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" /> How to use
      The records can be accessed via the Setup-menu of the CMS backend. The first dropdown control changes the view mode. There are 4 different view modes.
      View mode "Day" shows all visits of the selected day individually with IP-address, browser, operating system, requested page and originate page. Click the update button to see new added records. View mode "Month" shows the total of all visitors per day from the first to the last day of the selected month. View mode "Year" shows the total of all visitors per month from the first to the last month of the selected year. View mode "Total" shows the total of all visitors per year for all recorded years. Please note that multiple visits from the same IP address within the selected period are counted as a single visitor.
      Settings
      You can access the module settings by clicking the Configuration button at the bottom of the records page. The settings page is also available in the menu: Modules->Configure->ProcessPageViewStat.
      IP2Location
      This module uses the IP2Location database from: http://www.ip2location.com. This database is required to obtain the country from the IP address. IP2Location updates this database at the begin of every month. The settings of ProcessPageViewStat offers the ability to automatically download the database monthly. Please note, that automatically download will not work if your webspace doesn't allow allow_url_fopen.
      Dragscroll
      This module uses DragScroll. A JavaScript available from: http://github.com/asvd/dragscroll. Dragscroll adds the ability in view mode "Day" to drag the records horizontally with the mouse pointer.
      parseUserAgentStringClass
      This module uses the PHP class parseUserAgentStringClass available from: http://www.toms-world.org/blog/parseuseragentstring/. This class is required to filter out the browser type and operating system from the server request.
      Special Feature
      PageViewStatistic for ProcessWire can record the time a visitor viewed the page. This feature is deactivated by default. To activate open the module configuration page and activate "Record view time". If activated you will find a new column "S." in the records which means the time of view in seconds. With every page request, a Javascript code is inserted directly after the <body> tag. Every time the visitor switches to another tab or closes the tab, this script reports the number of seconds the tab was visible. The initial page request is recorded only as a hyphen (-).
