Hanna Code

Recommended Posts

Easily insert any complex HTML, Javascript or PHP output in your ProcessWire content by creating your own Hanna code tags.
This module is based loosely on the WordPress Hana Code Insert plugin.

A Hanna code tag looks like [[hello_world]]. A Hanna code tag with attributes looks like [[hello_world foo=bar" bar="foo]] using HTML style attributes or [[hello_world foo=bar, bar=foo]] using ProcessWire selector style attributes. After installing the module, you define your Hanna codes in Setup > Hanna Code.
 
These Hanna codes that you define can then be entered within your body copy (or other text where you allow) and they will be replaced with the values defined or generated by your Hanna code. A common use case is to embed scripts or other bits of HTML or codes that would usually be stripped out by an editor like TinyMCE. However, Hanna codes can be more than just static snippets--they can be dynamic PHP or Javascript that outputs different things according to the request. PHP-based Hanna codes have access to the entire ProcessWire API.
 
Hanna code accepts named attributes in the tag that can be passed as variables to PHP and Javascript Hanna codes. These attributes can be specified either in HTML attribute format or ProcessWire selector format. In either case, quotes should be used around the attribute value when the value contains whitespace or a comma.
 
How to install
  • Place the module files in /site/modules/TextformatterHannaCode/
  • In your admin, click Modules > Check for new modules
  • Click install for TextformatterHannaCode
  • Now to go Setup > Fields and locate the Textarea field(s) that you want to use Hanna codes with ("body" for instance). 
  • When editing the field, click the details tab, and select "Hanna Code" as the Textformatter. Save.
  • Now go to Setup > Hanna Code and start defining your Hanna Codes! You may want to use one of the examples from this document to get started.
Tag format
 
Below is a Hanna code tag named hello_world with no attributes. If you pasted this into your body copy, you would get whatever the replacement value is that you defined.
[[hello_world]]
Below is a Hanna code tag named hello_world being passed attributes of foo, bar and foobar. If this were a PHP-based Hanna code, it would receive the variables $foo, $bar and $foobar:
[[hello_world foo="bar" bar="foo" foobar="foo bar"]]
Below is the same Hanna code tag as above, but with attributes more like ProcessWire selectors. You can use whatever format you prefer. Just note that unlike regular ProcessWire selectors, quotes (single or double) are required around any value that has whitespace.
[[hello_world, foo=bar, bar=foo, foobar="foo bar"]] 
How to use
 
Please make sure that you have completed the How to install section first. Then in your admin, go to Setup > Hanna Codes.
 
Each Hanna code that you add has a type of either: Text/HTML, Javascript or PHP. The Text/HTML type is literally self explanatory in that your [[custom-tag]] is replaced with exactly the text you paste in. Anywhere that you type your [[custom-tag]] in your body copy will be replaced with exactly the static text you defined.
 
More power opens up with the Javascript and/or PHP types of codes. These codes execute at runtime and thus can contain specific logic to produce different results. In fact, PHP Hanna codes have access to the entire ProcessWire API and are executed in the same manner as template files. Your PHP-based Hanna code should simply "echo" or "print" the replacement value.
 
PHP example
  • Create a new Hanna code with the name "children".
  • Select "PHP" as the type.
  • Paste in the following for the code:
foreach($page->children as $child) {
  echo "<p><a href='$child->url'>$child->title</a>";
}
  • Now go and edit a page that has children. In the body copy, enter [[children]] in the place where you want the output to appear.
  • View the page, and you should see the rendered list of links to children.
PHP example, part 2
 
Now lets take the above example further...
  • Go back and edit your "children" Hanna code, as we are going to modify it to respond to a "parent" attribute. Change the code to this:
if(isset($parent)) {
  // If $parent is an ID or path, lets convert it to a Page
  $parent = $pages->get($parent);
} else {
  // otherwise lets assume the current page is the parent
  $parent = $page; 
}

foreach($parent->children as $child) {
  echo "<p><a href='$child->url'>$child->title</a>";
}
  • Go back and edit the page where you previously inserted the [[children]] tag, and change it to: [[children, parent=1]] (specifying the homepage) or [[children, parent=/path/to/some/parent/]] if you want to try something else.
  • View the page and you should now see it showing the children of the homepage (or of another parent you specified).
Please see the Javascript and PHP usage notes on the Hanna code entry screen.
 
Security
 
There are major security implications with a tool that will let you enter unfiltered text and code from your web browser. As a result, Hanna codes are meant for definition only by superusers and we recommend keeping it that way.

Just a note to all MODx'ers - I think this is a nice way to transfer some snippets/chunks to ProcessWire as well if people want to go down that route and have some they used to use in body text. Obviously it's not quite the same thing (potentially more powerful depending on your needs), but anything that helps make a transition easier is good in my book :)

Very useful, powerful module ryan!

Wow! Great module, Ryan.

Gonna create a bunch of snippets for quick prototyping and trying things. Expect a new wave of MODx'ers on the forum. These folks love using code snippents the way Hanna Code allows it!

Edit: Pete, we had almost the same thought!

Wow! Nice one; you've been busy!

Yes, there have been two or three questions from MODx'ers in the forums about something like this - the ability to randomly, directly call snippets, chunks and TVs within the body field/area in TinyMCE. Previously they've been pointed to shortcodes and tag parser. Hanna is certainly more powerful and would solve this issue easily.

I can't wait to see the creative ways people use this :rolleyes: .

Thx for the module!

Looks like a very useful module, thanks for sharing it Ryan.

I just tried to install it using ModulesManager, and I can't install it right after downloading as it requires Textformatter module to be installed.

TemplateFile: Module ProcessHannaCode requires: TextformatterHannaCode

#0 [internal function]: Modules->___install('ProcessHannaCod...')...

Couldn't it be installed when installing the process module?

Edit: When I create a new hanna code and not enter a tag name and save I get an error and can't see the form.

Works fine if you use default Module manager (PW's). You can only install via TextformatterHannaCode actually. Summary says this "Also Installs - ProcessHannaCode". The install button for  ProcessHannaCode is greyed out with the message "Requires - TextformatterHannaCode". ProcessHannaCode auto installs. Maybe something with ModulesManager?

@Ryan: The TextformatterHannaCode and ProcessHannaCode have the same name - "Hanna Code" in PW module manager. This can be confusing :) (but not a big deal).

@kongodo, but I don't use Modules page anymore :D I didn't see that the Textformatter is the mother module. At the end it got installed but it's confusing.

Of course it has to do with ModulesManager and the nature of the modules. Modules Manager doesn't know what modules are there and how to install. It takes the module "class name" that is entered on modules.processwire.com to create folder and installs the main module. It's all information I got from modules.processwire.com and there's no manifest, dependencies or lifecycle informations to modules in PW (which IMO is requires rather sooner than later)

For some reason it seems now Ryan has changed the module class name to "TextformatterHannaCode", and this should work better now. Though changing those settings "class name" is dangerous once the module is installed via ModulesManager, because there's actually two different folders for the same module.

Sorry about that, I went back and forth on the name a couple times and ultimately entered the wrong class name in the modules directory. It should have been TextformatterHannaCode, not ProcessHannaCode. I have corrected that.

Edit: When I create a new hanna code and not enter a tag name and save I get an error and can't see the form.

I was throwing an exception when I shouldn't have. I'm pushing a correction for this. 

 The TextformatterHannaCode and ProcessHannaCode have the same name - "Hanna Code" in PW module manager. This can be confusing :) (but not a big deal).

Technically they are part of the same program "Hanna Code", even if that program has two modules. But I know what you mean. I'm adding "(Process)" to the Process one, just so that the two next to each other can be differentiated. 

Also, one more section I just added to the README:

Using Hanna Code from the API
 
If you want to populate Hanna Code from the API, you can do so using the render() method, like this:
$hanna = $modules->get('TextformatterHannaCode'); 
$page->body = $hanna->render($page->body);

Just posted version 0.0.2 that addresses the items above. It also adds an option that lets you specify whether the immediate surrounding HTML tag should be replaced with your Hanna Code output or not. For instance, if your [[hello-world]] Hanna Code output is "Hello World" and is applied to the body copy containing "<p>[[hello-world]]</p>" then you probably don't want it to replace the surrounding <p> tags. Whereas if your Hanna Code outputs block level elements like "<ul><li>Hello World</li></ul>" then you probably do want it to replace the surrounding <p> tags, otherwise you'd end up with some invalid markup like: <p><ul><li>Hello World</li></ul></p>.

I have tested Hanna with single {, ( and [, i.e. 

(hello)
[hello]
{hello} 
They all work fine in both PHP and Text mode.

Ryan, are these OK or they could throw up issues? Thx.

I think it would be really cool if there was and easy (JSON?) way to import/export hanna codes (all or single). Maybe then we could setup a subforum to share them.

Otherwise this is amazing, thanks Ryan.

Is it just me or is Hanna version 1.0.4 broken? It no longer works - it outputs the raw tag :(

Don't know what's happening but even older versions do not work any more. I'm stumped. Ideas? Using it on 2.3 stable

It's working for me at least, though I did change some things about the regex's in 0.0.4, so I might need to get more info about the context. What's an example of a tag that isn't working for you? What is the markup that surrounds it in your text? Also can you double check that "Hanna Code" is set as the textformatter for your body field (or whatever field you are using it in) in Setup > Fields > body > details?

Ryan, are these OK or they could throw up issues? Thx.

It should be fine to set your open/close tags to be whatever you want. Though [this] is a fairly common text construct, where as [[this]] is not. So if your [this] ever conflicts with the name of a Hanna Code, that could cause some confusion. As a result, I think it may be preferable to use open/close tags that don't duplicate things you would usually see in written copy.

I'm going to give this a go for inserting galleries on the fly. I think this combined with responsive CSS is pretty powerful stuff.

Sorry; I just wasted your precious time! I forgot to set it as my textformatter after I made a couple of changes!  :-[ Thanks :)

What kills me about this module is that Ryan literally decided to make it because I had something similar in WordPress and needed a substitute solution in ProcessWire (as part of the move of CMS Critic to PW) otherwise I'd have a ton of weird shortcodes in my posts for no reason. He made this module, imported my code from the other module (called Hana Code in WP) and named his Hanna Code (after his daughter) and Poof! a module is born.

I am insanely jealous of his mad php skills (but glad they can be bought!)

Ryan, brilliant stuff!
 

For me it won't work in my first attempt and it took me some time to figure out my failure.

You can't use the identifier "name" for a variable.

[[gallery name="Test"]]

I didn't found any comments on this issue, so perhaps it helps.

Kent, that's correct–I'll update the readme file. The term "name" is set to the name of the Hanna code. This is provided to the PHP so that it can check the name of the code, just in case it needs it. Likewise, it's preferable not to use any API variable name for your attributes either.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      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! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      InputfieldSlideToggle
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Status
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      Size
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

       
      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

       
      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

       
      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
