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.

      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.

      Detailed records
      View mode "Detailed records" 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.

      Cached visitor records
      View modes other than "Detailed records" are cached visitor counts which will be collected on a daily basis from the detailed records. This procedure ensures a faster display even with a large number of data records. Another advantage is that the detailed records can be deleted while the cache remains. The cache can be updated manually or automatically in a specified time period. Multiple visits from the same IP address on the same day are counted as a single visitor.

      Upgrade from older versions
      Cached visitor counts is new in version 1.0.8. If you just upgraded from an older version you might expire a delay or even an error 500 if you display cached visitor counts. The reason for this is that the cache has to be created from the records. This can take longer if your database contains many records. Sometimes it might hit the maximally execution time. Don't worry about that and keep reloading the page until the cache is completely created.
      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 (-).

      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.

      TextformatterTypographer
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
    • By robert
      I often had the need for an overview of all used fields and their contents for a specific page/template while developing new websites without switching to the backend, so I made a small module which lists all the needed information in a readable manner (at least for me):
      Debug Page Fields
      https://github.com/robertweiss/ProcessDebugPageFields
      It adds two new properties to all pages:
      $page->debugFieldValues – returns an object with all (sub-)fields, their labels, fieldtypes and values $page->debugFieldTypes – returns an object with all fieldtypes and their corresponding fields // List all values of a pages $page->debugFieldValues // List a specific field $page->debugFieldValues->fieldname // List all used fieldtypes of a page $page->debugFieldTypes I recommend using it in combination with Tracy Debugger, Ray, Xdebug etc. as it returns an object and is only meant for developing/debugging uses. 
      For now, the fieldtype support includes mostly fieldtypes I use in my projects, but can easily be extended by adding a new FieldtypeFIELDNAME method to the module. I use it with five different client installations (all PW 3.0.*), but of course there might be some (or more) field configurations which are not covered correctly yet.
      Supported fieldtypes
      Button Checkbox Color Combo Datetime Email FieldsetPage * File FontIconPicker Functional Image ImageReference MapMarker Multiplier Mystique Options Page PageIDs PageTitle Radio Repeater * RepeaterMatrix * RockAwesome SeoMaestro Table Text Textarea Textareas Toggle URL * The fields with complete subfield-support also list their corresponding subfields.
      Installation
      Download the zip file at Github or clone the repo into your site/modules directory. If you downloaded the zip file, extract it in your sites/modules directory. In your admin, go to Modules > Refresh, then Modules > New, then click on the Install button for this module. As this is my first ›public‹ module, I hope I did not miss any important things to mention here.

      Wire Mail SMTP

      An extension to the (new) WireMail base class that uses SMTP-transport

      This module integrates EmailMessage, SMTP and SASL php-libraries from Manuel Lemos into ProcessWire. I use this continously evolved libraries for about 10 years now and there was never a reason or occasion not to do so. I use it nearly every day in my office for automated composing and sending personalized messages with attachments, requests for Disposition Notifications, etc. Also I have used it for sending personalized Bulkmails many times.

      The WireMailSmtp module extends the new email-related WireMail base class introduced in ProcessWire 2.4.1 (while this writing, the dev-branch only).
       
      Here are Ryans announcement.



      Current Version 0.6.0
      Changelog: https://github.com/horst-n/WireMailSmtp/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
      get it from the Modules Directory Install and Configure

      Download the module into your site/modules/ directory and install it.

      In the config page you fill in settings for the SMTP server and optionaly the (default) sender, like email address, name and signature.
      You can test the smtp settings directly there. If it says "SUCCESS! SMTP settings appear to work correctly." you are ready to start using it in templates, modules or bootstrap scripts.


      Usage Examples
      The simplest way to use it:
      $numSent = wireMail($to, $from, $subject, $textBody); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody); // or with a default sender emailaddress on config page This will send a plain text message to each recipient.
       
      You may also use the object oriented style:
      $mail = wireMail(); // calling an empty wireMail() returns a wireMail object $mail->to($toEmail, $toName); $mail->from = $yourEmailaddress; // if you don't have set a default sender in config // or if you want to override that $mail->subject($subject); $mail->body($textBody); $numSent = $mail->send(); Or chained, like everywhere in ProcessWire:
      $mail = wireMail(); $numSent = $mail->to($toEmail)->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); Additionaly to the basics there are more options available with WireMailSmtp. The main difference compared to the WireMail BaseClass is the sendSingle option. With it you can set only one To-Recipient but additional CC-Recipients.
      $mail = wireMail(); $mail->sendSingle(true)->to($toEmail, $toName)->cc(array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com')); $numSent = $mail->subject($subject)->body($textBody)->send(); The same as function call with options array:
      $options = array( 'sendSingle' => true, 'cc' => array('person1@example.com', 'person2@example.com', 'person3@example.com') ); $numSent = wireMail($to, '', $subject, $textBody, $options); There are methods to your disposal to check if you have the right WireMail-Class and if the SMTP-settings are working:
      $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { // Uups, wrong WireMail-Class: do something to inform the user and quit echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; return; } if(!$mail->testConnection()) { // Connection not working: echo "<p>Couldn't connect to the SMTP server. Please check the {$mail->className} modules config settings!</p>"; return; }  
      A MORE ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD!
      You can add some debug code into a template file and call a page with it:
      $to = array('me@example.com'); $subject = 'Wiremail-SMTP Test ' . date('H:i:s') . ' äöü ÄÖÜ ß'; $mail = wireMail(); if($mail->className != 'WireMailSmtp') { echo "<p>Couldn't get the right WireMail-Module (WireMailSmtp). found: {$mail->className}</p>"; } else { $mail->from = '--INSERT YOUR SENDER ADDRESS HERE --'; // <--- !!!! $mail->to($to); $mail->subject($subject); $mail->sendSingle(true); $mail->body("Titel\n\ntext text TEXT text text\n"); $mail->bodyHTML("<h1>Titel</h1><p>text text <strong>TEXT</strong> text text</p>"); $dump = $mail->debugSend(1); } So, in short, instead of using $mail->send(), use $mail->debugSend(1) to get output on a frontend testpage.
      The output is PRE formatted and contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection, like this one:
       
      Following are a ...


      List of all options and features


      testConnection () - returns true on success, false on failures


      sendSingle ( true | false ) - default is false

      sendBulk ( true | false ) - default is false, Set this to true if you have lots of recipients (50+)


      to ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      cc ($recipients) - only available with mode sendSingle, one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

      bcc ($recipients) - one emailaddress or array with multiple emailaddresses

       
      from = 'person@example.com' - emailaddress, can be set in module config (called Sender Emailaddress) but it can be overwritten here

      fromName = 'Name Surname' - optional, can be set in module config (called Sender Name) but it can be overwritten here


      priority (3) - 1 = Highest | 2 = High | 3 = Normal | 4 = Low | 5 = Lowest

      dispositionNotification () or notification () - request a Disposition Notification


      subject ($subject) - subject of the message

      body ($textBody) - use this one alone to create and send plainText emailmessages

      bodyHTML ($htmlBody) - use this to create a Multipart Alternative Emailmessage (containing a HTML-Part and a Plaintext-Part as fallback)

      addSignature ( true | false ) - the default-behave is selectable in config screen, this can be overridden here
      (only available if a signature is defined in the config screen)

      attachment ($filename, $alternativeBasename = "") - add attachment file, optionally alternative basename


      send () - send the message(s) and return number of successful sent messages


      debugSend(1) - returns and / or outputs a (pre formatted) dump that contains the areas: SETTINGS, RESULT, ERRORS and a complete debuglog of the server connection. (See above the example code under ADVANCED DEBUG METHOD for further instructions!)


      getResult () - returns a dump (array) with all recipients (to, cc, bcc) and settings you have selected with the message, the message subject and body, and lists of successfull addresses and failed addresses,


      logActivity ($logmessage) - you may log success if you want

      logError ($logmessage) - you may log warnings, too. - Errors are logged automaticaly
       
       
      useSentLog (true | false) - intended for usage with e.g. third party newsletter modules - tells the send() method to make usage of the sentLog-methods - the following three sentLog methods are hookable, e.g. if you don't want log into files you may provide your own storage, or add additional functionality here

      sentLogReset ()  - starts a new LogSession - Best usage would be interactively once when setting up a new Newsletter

      sentLogGet ()  - is called automaticly within the send() method - returns an array containing all previously used emailaddresses

      sentLogAdd ($emailaddress)  - is called automaticly within the send() method

      Food Allergens Module
      A simple List of Food Allergens
      My needs were to provide a simple list of food allergens for our clients with restaurant related activity.
      The idea was to simply output the list (to speed up the data entry) without leaving the food menu editing, eg. opening another page in new tab or window.
      This isn't a perfect solution, but it works fine for my needs and I decided to share the base idea.
      This could also be easily used to show little notes or short "vademecum", not only for the list of food allergens.
      ---
      Main features
      The basis
      All moves from a short editing of the module in this tutorial: How to create custom admin pages by @bernhard
      First of all it creates an empty admin page, with a dedicated permission to let safe-user to see it (this permission has to be created as a new ones, manually or by the module).
      Once the page is created, I have hooked its behaviour into the ready.php, to show the content (basically a list).
      A step further
      With the tips of  @bernhard, @Soma (and many others), see here , the magic happens. 
      The new page will be shown as a panel, so editors will not abandon their data entry to have a quick view to the list.
      A little further
      Why scroll to the top of the page to click a link?
      The next step was to create a sticky button only in the food menu pages.
      Again with a @bernhard tip I moved into the customization of this simple module and the related hook.

      How to use this module
      After installed, it creates the page /admin/page/allergens/ and the module is to be setted up. The first field is a CKEditor with multi-language. This is the place where to write the informations that will be shown into the page. The next field is a simply text-area where to place a bit of JS that will be appended to the markup of the text (omit the 'script' tags). I also putted a checkbox with a silly statement: this to think at least twice on the safety of the written JS. Now comes the first way to display the link to the page
      Field Note with Link. Enable and save it. The module will display a new row with 4 selects (1 standard and 3 ASM):
      View mode (to show the page as Panel or as Modal PopUp); Templates to select: select one or more and save before proceed, so the  asm-select of the pages will be populated showing all the pages of the selected templates. Pages to select: also here select at least one and save before proceed to populate the asm-select for fields only with the ones that belong to the selected pages. Select the fields where to place the note and save again. That's all: now you will find into the notes of the selected fields the link "See the List of Allergens".
      At the same way, the option for the sticky button, but with a plus
      The field select is obviously unnecessary, but you could play with the last row: the inline styles to fix your sticky button where you like. Here you could set the sticky position of the <div> and the absolute ones of the <a>.

      Video Explanation
      In these screencasts you could see a custom JS that show a "copy" button near a "hanna-code" call.
      This because I've set a specific one for each allergen to show up a tooltip in the front end.

      Last but not the least
      Actually it works fine for my needs, even if it's much improvable: I'm working on the permissions creation, the uninstall section, a separate configs and defaults and how to include the hook into the module leaving free the ready.php. According to a simpler uninstall. Also I would make the link text as a dynamic text field, so it will be more flexible.
      I always learn a lot here, so I would share my code for whom it could be interested.
      I removed the hanna code references, but I provide you the html list of the allergens, English and Italian too, so you can paste them into the "source" of the CKEditor field to have a ready to use module.
      Obviously you are free to modify the code as per your needs.
      Please, keep in mind that I'm not a pro coder and I beg your pardon for my verbosity (speaking and coding). 😉
      I hope be helpful or for inspiration.
