MarkupTwitterFeed - where do I get the feed?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have just installed the MarkupTwitterFeed module, but for some reason I cannot find the right feed.

I have created a Twitter app and maybe it is because I am doing it wrong in the process of doing that.

Would anyone mind guiding me in the right direction to getting the right feed?

By the way, the link to the Twitter application page is leading to a 404 github page here https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/MarkupTwitterFeed

Thanks

Vayu

Is it possible to use this module to render multiple feeds from different timelines now that you have to provide a consumer tokens etc? I was using the old version to render two twitter timelines to a page.

Hi Ben.

Do you have an idea of how to get it working, what am I missing?  Can you get it working with a single feed?

I find it amusing that twitter requires auth, when pulling public tweets... Boring.

got one timeline working. I might try duplicating the module, giving it a new name and adding it as a second module to see if that works for two separate user timeline renders.

Could I see the code for a working example?  I still don't know why I cannot get it to work.  I am guessing it's my Twitter app I have created the wrong way, but am not sure.

Hi Soma. Yes, I saw that yesterday and downloaded it right away.  But what is the feed that I enter into the $t = $modules->get('What-goes-here');  Can I see a working example?

OK so bit of a hack but heres how i got 2 timelines within PW. Maybe in the future the twitter module could include multiple users...?

1) Created one instance using the twitter module:

- implemented the latest version of the twitter module - on github

- created an app on twitter using the user of the timeline i wanted to show (in this case Virgin) dev.twitter.com

- for some reason it didnt authenticate straight away so I signed into twitter.com and went to app settings and found my new app at the top with read-only permissions.

- went back to my app on dev.twitter.com and add my new keys.

2) Duplicated the twitter module

- changed the name of the module folder to MarkupTwitterFeed2, the file MarkupTwitterFeed2.module and the class within to MarkupTwitterFeed2 (instead of MarkupTwitterFeed)

- uploaded to modules folder and installed like normal in PW

3) rendering

- I created a new template duplicating my first twitter template (which i happened to do as if it was a widget on the page and thus could be used by any page)

- <? php $t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed2');

and TADA! you've got two timelines...

e.g. http://www.virgintribesa.com/

Hi Arjen and Soma.

Thanks for helping.  I am running the latest version and have been for the last day or so.  I realize that Ryan has made a couple of changes today, but I am running version 2.0 and have been ever since I posted this first post. :-)  I have now updated it again from github, just like I did last night.

I have just found out what I was missing.  I had not seen that I could enter the Twitter app settings via the module settings: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s3/sh/20c34a3b-47fa-45da-b303-3dbea2adddb4/62e355680244c10271847a66dc91b753.  It all makes sense now.

One other thing I might like to ask is how to set a locale.

I tried this:

setlocale(LC_TIME, "da_DK");
$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed');


But it won't work.  Any ideas? My site can be seen here: http://vrweb.dk/

I'm glad vayu solved his problem but I can't solve mine. I have updated the module, created a twitter app and retrieved the consumer key & secret and access token & secret, entered them into the module settings but still get "Error retrieving Twitter status".

Is there some extra step when creating the app? Their documentation is horrible.

It seems for the module to work all I should need is the oauth settings and any other info in the app is arbitrary (i.e needed for the app but not for the module. What am I missing?

EDIT:

I've got a new error message:

Error    Call to undefined function wireRmdir() (line 195 of /home/checkere/www/www/site/modules/MarkupTwitterFeed/MarkupTwitterFeed.module)

Maybe I should see about using the embedded feed for now.

@vayu, you might want to use strftime since that will respect your locale. So you might want to convert it. Can't really tell if that's best practice but it might work.

@digitex, I made a mistake updating my code partially. Make sure you use:

$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed'); 

instead of:

$t = new MarkupTwitterFeed;

That worked for me.

Hey Arjen.

That's where the different errors came from. Originally I had:

$t = new MarkupTwitterFeed;

Which returned "Error retrieving Twitter status" which at least proved the module was installed and working.

I switched to:

$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed');

which is when I got "Error    Call to undefined function wireRmdir() (line 195 of

/home/checkere/www/www/site/modules/MarkupTwitterFeed/MarkupTwitterFeed.module)"

I then abandoned the module for Twitteroauth and used:

<?php
session_start();
require_once("twitteroauth/twitteroauth/twitteroauth.php"); //Path to twitteroauth library
 
$twitteruser = "digitex";
$notweets = 3;
$consumerkey = "1234345667";
$consumersecret = "244556667";
$accesstoken = "23456676788";
$accesstokensecret = "2345667889";
 
function getConnectionWithAccessToken($cons_key, $cons_secret, $oauth_token, $oauth_token_secret) {
  $connection = new TwitterOAuth($cons_key, $cons_secret, $oauth_token, $oauth_token_secret);
  return $connection;
}
 
$connection = getConnectionWithAccessToken($consumerkey, $consumersecret, $accesstoken, $accesstokensecret);
 
$tweets = $connection->get("https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=".$twitteruser."&count=".$notweets);
 
echo json_encode($tweets);
?>

Which worked and loaded the feed but not in a very presentational way. I'm convinced now the twitter app I created is correct but the implementation with or of the module is not. I'm not suggesting the module doesn't work since it obviously does for others, just that something is set up wrong for me.

Last report before I give up on this S---.

I went ahead and updated the module on a different site, different server, same version of PHP but different host and it worked like a charm. So, now I'm a little closer to figuring it out.

The problem site has another issue. I tried to uninstall the MarkupTwitterFeed module and got a new error. It won't uninstall. I might try going in through PHPMyAdmin and doing it that way and then see if I can start over with it.

@arjen,thanks for the tip, but it looks like strftime is used in the code of the module.  Furthermore, it looks like the only thing regarding the date, that can be changed via the parameters is the date format.  I don't see any way to hook into the code to change the date output.

I went to update to v2 today and noticed that it is not showing up in the modules manager. Thought I'd uninstall and see if that helped, but got this error:

DirectoryIterator::__construct(/xxx/site/assets/cache/MarkupTwitterFeed/): failed to open dir: No such file or directory

The directory doesn't exist - not sure why. Anyway, manual upgrade seems to be fine.

Another thing - the link from the Github page:

"To obtain these, create a new Twitter application at: https://dev.twitter.com/apps."

is broken!

I'm having the same issue with the module error and havent been able to get the new module working with Ryan's Blog template yet :(

Just to clarify - I am not having any problems with the new version of the module working at all. My comments were strictly related to upgrading and the link on the GitHub page. 

Can you provide anymore info on why the new module isn't working for. No output, errors, what?

I was getting errors initially because I was using:

$t = new MarkupTwitterFeed();

but switching to:

$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed'); 
 

fixed everything.

Does that help?

looks like u. right. Not workin wit ver 2.2.9 :lol:

That may have just saved me a wack of trouble. Didn't realize it was 2.3 compatible only. Thanks Willy.

Edit June 18: upgraded PW to 2.3 and twitter feed is up again. Note to self: read compatibility before spending 5 hours troubleshooting.

Hi guys,

Having problems with this module. Using PW 2.3 and the latest version of this Module. 

I've put in all the information required in the module admin page and double checked that the information is correct, but no matter what I try, I keep getting 

"Error retrieving Twitter status" 

With nothing being logged to the errors.txt log file.

Any ideas what it could be? I'm running PHP 5.4 on Debian 7.

      SnipWire - Snipcart integration for ProcessWire
      Snipcart is a powerful 3rd party, developer-first HTML/JavaScript shopping cart platform. SnipWire is the missing link between Snipcart and the content management framework ProcessWire.
      With SnipWire, you can quickly turn any ProcessWire site into a Snipcart online shop. The SnipWire plugin helps you to get your store up and running in no time. Detailed knowledge of the Snipcart system is not required.
      SnipWire is free and open source licensed under Mozilla Public License 2.0! A lot of work and effort has gone into development. It would be nice if you could donate an amount to support further development:

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.60
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      ⚠️ NOTICE: 1.5.60 is an important security patch-release for an XSS vulnerability discovered by @phlp. It's HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that all Jumplinks users update to the latest version as soon as possible.
      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! 🙂
