Removing javascript from admin theme

Recommended Posts

Can ProcessWire work without Javascript? I'm rebuilding the admin theme from the bottom up and I want to remove all (or as much as I can) of the jQuery UI and use my own. However I noticed that this breaks the homepage where all the templates are loaded. Can someone help me get this working without Javascript?

Thanks.

Most of ProcessWire's admin can function without Javascript, but sections of the admin that rely upon asmSelect's sortable functionality require javascript. I think the Template edit screen is the primary one that would be problematic. The PageList should technically be able to function without Javascript (though haven't tried it in awhile), but you lose the ability to drag-sort of course. I'd always intended the admin to be workable without JS, but the demand for it has never come up, so it's not had much focus since version 2.0 was released.

I was wrong, the PageList won't work without Javascript at present. ProcessWire just delivers JSON for the PageList, and the markup is actually rendered in Javascript. Try this URL for an example of the output that ProcessPageList produces: 

/processwire/page/?id=1&render=JSON

Thanks Ryan. Ok I think I can work around it. It's not a massive requirement to get it working without Javascript it's just I was trying to build an admin theme which was as lean as possible and I don't see the need for Javascript being used to generate the PageList. Also there is a weird arrow that appears when the list loads. My thinking was to go back to basics and start from scratch.

Nico. I'll send you a PM, and maybe you can help me get round some of the issues I'm having.

      Hi,
      I'm really struggling with this as it's something not in my wheelhouse. I'm creating a blog style page (a grid of cards) which has attributes.
      I have a snip of javascript which grabs values from checkboxes which are put into a value like the below:
      ?content=static_video&channel=facebook-ads_instagram-ads
      document.querySelector("form").onsubmit=ev=>{ ev.preventDefault(); let o={}; ev.target.querySelectorAll("[name]:checked").forEach(el=>{ (o[el.name]=o[el.name]||[]).push(el.value)}) console.log(location.pathname+"?"+ Object.entries(o).map(([v,f])=> v+"="+f.join("_")).join("&") ); document.location.href = location.pathname+"?"+ Object.entries(o).map(([v,f])=> v+"="+f.join("_")).join("&"); } As I'm currently refeshing the page on button click with those values the end result includes the location but can easily remove this.
      I then use this value in "input->get" to get the values which I then append to a find() rule. See code below:
      $selector = "template='adbank_pages',sort=published,include=all,status!=hidden"; // Get the channel and content inputs $channel = $input->get->channel; $content = $input->get->content; if($channel){ // Grab the channel string, explode into an array for checkbox checking and then replace _ with | to create or rules in the selector. $chanArray = explode("_", $channel); $chan = $channel = str_replace('_', '|', $channel); $selector = $selector .= ",ab_channels=$chan"; } if($content){ // Grab the content string, explode into an array for checkbox checking and then replace _ with | to create or rules in the selector. $contArray = explode("_", $content); $cont = $content = str_replace('_', '|', $content); $selector = $selector .= ",ab_content=$cont"; } if($input->get){ // If a valid input result $all = $pages->find($selector); } }else{ // If no input show them all $all = $page->children("template='adbank_pages',sort=-published,include=all,status!=hidden"); } $items = $all->find("limit=12"); // Limit the output and use pagination As mentioned above I currently refresh the page to adjust the $selector filter within the $all with a fallback $all if there are no results.
      I know I need to use AJAX to filter the content without refresh but I am really struggling with the set up. I have read multiple posts including the original by Ryan but still confused.
      If anyone can direct/help on this it would be appreciated.
      Thank you

      could someone help me find the javascript bug?

      or here:

      I want it to be NOT draggable on desktop but draggable on mobile devices. Also, on mobile, the element that I drag into focus should automatically be active, but on desktop, only when I click it.
      It works fine on desktop, but when you drag on mobile, after the dragged element is active and you click it, it switches back and forth between this and the previous element (assigns the active class to the previous element).
      I already tried to find help elsewhere, since this is not directly PW related but only frontend, but it's hard to find support or a community for uikit. PW seems to be using it quite a lot though…
      Thanks for help

      Hello to all. I would like to create an app. So I need to learn at least one programming language. I got informed online, and discovered that javascript with node.js, is the revolution of recent years, because it's faster than php. I wonder: if I develop an app with javascript and with a javascript framework (e.g. Meteor), is there a way to integrate processwire work? I know that processwire supports the transformation of the site into an application, but would it be as simple as Meteor? With the Meteor framework I have my app online in 10 minutes, and without even knowing javascript! (Knowing javascript would serve to personalize it). I should then install the app in a SUB-DOMAIN. If I study php, instead, and if I use a php framework (e.g. Laravel), how long does it take to have my first working app? Is it easy to process Laravel's components? Is writing forms for processwire apps with php a very complex job? Is it better to use Meteor and start with javascript? What would you recommend?

      My clients wants a modal to show up on every page. But when a user clicks inside the modal -> a session-cookie is set and the modal gets a class.
      // user clicks on modal button $('.modal_button').click(function(){ // 1. set PW session cookie // 2. toggle class $('.modal').toggleClass('off'); }); I know how to set a cookie on page-load via PW-API. But the click on the modal button does not force a page-load. So i have to set the cookie through javascript. Is there a way to do that?

      Hello Everyone, I am new in this community and I am learning typescript but my friend was suggested to me go with javascript profile because it is most popular scripting language for many web projects and huge community support with lots of documentation and support for solving issues. Can anyone clear this point which one is better for future points of view typescript or javascript?
