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 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?

It was updated 4 hours ago...

Yes there's a readme with examples...

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.

      This fieldtype and inputfield bundle was built for storing measurement values within a field, rendering them in a variety of formats and converting them to other units or otherwise modifying them via the API.
      The API consists of a number of predefined functions, some of which include...
      render() for rendering the measurement object, valueAs() for converting the value to another unit value, convertTo() for converting the whole measurement object to different units, and add() and subtract() for for modifying the stored value by the value (converted as required) in another measurement. In the admin the inputfield includes a checkbox (which can be optionally disabled) for converting values on page save. For an example if a value was typed in as centimeters, the unit was changed to metres, and the page saved with this checkbox selected, said value would be automatically converted so that e.g. 170 cm becomes 1.7 m.

      A simple length field using Fieldtype Measurement and Inputfield Measurement.
      Combination units (e.g. feet and inches) are also supported.
      Please note that this module is 'proof of concept' at the moment - there are limited units available and quite a lot of code tidying to do. More units will be added shortly.
      See the GitHub at https://github.com/MetaTunes/FieldtypeMeasurement for full details and updates.

      Session Viewer is a module for ProcessWire to list session files and display session data. This module is helpful to display the session data of a specific session or to kick out a logged in user by simply delete his session file. After installation the module is available in the Setup menu.

      The following conditions must be met for the module to work properly:
      Session files
      Session data must be stored in session files, which is the default way in ProcessWire. Sessions stored in the database are not supported by this module. The path to the directory where the session files are stored must be declared in the ProcessWire configuration which is by default: site/assets/sessions.
      Serialize handler
      In order to transform session data easier back to a PHP array, the session data is stored serialized. PHP offers a way to declare a custom serialize handler. This module supports only the default serialize handlers: php, php_binary and php_serialize. WDDX was dropped in PHP 7.4.0 and is therefore not supported by this module as well as any other custom serialize handler. Which serialize handler is actually used you can find out in the module configuration which is available under Modules=>Configure=>SessionViewer.

      Session data
      The session data can be displayed in two different ways. PHP's default output for arrays print_r() or by default for this module nice_r() offered on github: https://github.com/uuf6429/nice_r. There is a setting in the module configuration if someone prefers print_r(). Apart from the better handling and overview of the folded session data the output of nice_r() looks indeed nicer.

      Repeater Easy Sort
      Adds a compact "easy-sort" mode to Repeater and Repeater Matrix, making those fields easier to sort when there are a large number of items.
      The module also enhances Repeater Matrix by allowing a colour to be set for each matrix type. This colour is used in the item headers and in the "add new" links, to help visually distinguish different matrix types in the inputfield.
      Screencasts
      A Repeater field

      A Repeater Matrix field with custom header colours

      Easy-sort mode
      Each Repeater/Matrix item gets an double-arrow icon in the item header. Click this icon to enter easy-sort mode.
      While in easy-sort mode:
      The items will reduce in width so that more items can be shown on the screen at once. The minimum width is configurable in the field settings. Any items that were in an open state are collapsed, but when you exit easy-sort mode the previously open items will be reopened. You can drag an item left/right/up/down to sort it within the items. The item that you clicked the icon for is shown with a black background. This makes it easier to find the item you want to move in easy-sort mode. You can click an item header to open the item. An "Exit easy-sort mode" button appears at the bottom of the inputfield. Configuration
      In the field settings for Repeater and Repeater Matrix fields you can define a minimum width in pixels for items in easy-sort mode. While in easy-sort mode the items will be sized to neatly fill the available width on any screen size but will never be narrower than the width you set here.
      In the field settings for Repeater Matrix you can define a custom header colour for each matrix type using an HTML "color" type input. The default colour for this type of input is black, so when black is selected in the input it means that no custom colour will be applied to the header.
      Exclusions
      The easy-sort mode is only possible on Repeater/Matrix fields that do not use the "item depth" option.
