Twitter Feed (MarkupTwitterFeed)

Recommended Posts

I tested adding this function to the module:

<?php
function convert_twitter_links($tweet)
{
	//converts URLs to active links
	$tweet = preg_replace('/((http)+(s)?:\/\/[^<>\s]+)/i', '<a href="$0" target="_blank">$0</a>', $tweet );

	//converts mentions (e.g. @stathisg) to active links, pointing to the user's twitter profile
	$tweet = preg_replace('/[@]+([A-Za-z0-9-_]+)/', '<a href="http://twitter.com/$1" target="_blank">$1</a>', $tweet );

	//converts hashtags (e.g. #test) to active links, pointing to a twitter's search URL
	$tweet = preg_replace('/[#]+([A-Za-z0-9-_]+)/', '<a href="http://twitter.com/search?q=%23$1" target="_blank">$0</a>', $tweet );
	return $tweet;
}

and then called it like this: 

$text = $this->convert_twitter_links($text); 

Though, I had to put this line just below this line (this is within renderItem() definition ):

$text = wire('sanitizer')->entities($text);

I will guess I must be doing something wrong here not sanitizing this string before rendering it, but I can't really tell, I don't know much about this "entities" methods, so I will recommend taking this solution as unsafe or something like that until someone else gives a hand :)

Here's a working code example that doesn't use render and implements elabx's function mentioned above:

<ul>
	<?php

	$i = 0;
	$limit = 4;
	$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed'); 

	function convert_links($tweet) {
		$tweet = preg_replace('/((http)+(s)?:\/\/[^<>\s]+)/i', '<a href="$0" target="_blank">$0</a>', $tweet );
		$tweet = preg_replace('/[@]+([A-Za-z0-9-_]+)/', '<a href="http://twitter.com/$1" target="_blank">$1</a>', $tweet );
		$tweet = preg_replace('/[#]+([A-Za-z0-9-_]+)/', '<a href="http://twitter.com/search?q=%23$1" target="_blank">$0</a>', $tweet );
		return $tweet;
	}

	foreach ($t as $tweet){
		if ($i < $limit){
			$text = convert_links($tweet['text']);			
			$timestamp = date('F j g:i a', strtotime($tweet['created_at']));
			echo '<li>'.$text.'<br><small>'.$timestamp.'</small></li>';
		}
		$i++;
	}

	?>
</ul>

A variant of the IF statement section from the above example that checks whether a Tweet is a retweet, and displays the appropriate author information.

if ($i < $limit){
	$text = convert_links($tweet['text']);
	$timestamp = date('F j g:i a', strtotime($tweet['created_at']));

	echo '<li>';

	if ($tweet['retweeted']){
		$author = $tweet['retweeted_status']['user']['name']; // Other Person
		$handle = $tweet['retweeted_status']['user']['screen_name']; // @otherPerson
		$text = substr($text, 3); // Removes 'RT ' from the beginning of the Tweet
	} else {
		$author = $tweet['user']['name']; // You
		$handle = $tweet['user']['screen_name']; // @you
	}

	echo $author.' @'.$handle.'<br>'.$text.'<br>'.$timestamp.'</li>';
}

Note that the above requires the following change to MarkupTwitterFeed.module (line 138) to work :

'trim_user' => false, // include user details, because user details are useful

Thank you Acturus, got this code working now!

But I'm experiencing another problem: I can't show more than 3 Tweets, even though I've  set the limit in the module to 4...

I'm also experiencing this in 3.0, I set the limit to 5 but it's showing 13. I guess it's ignoring the limit in 3.0?

Hello,

I installed this module on a 3.0.12 devns site despite the fact that it is officially not compatible (yet?).

And it broke my backend theme which is  a custom admin theme based on the default theme with only very slight changes to the theme header and the content width.

I needed to manually delete my custom admin theme from the modules table in the DB to get a working backend again.

Finally, I downgraded the site to 2.7.2 so I can use the twitter markup module. Site is still under development and I don't really need all the new features from devns branch.

Has anyone else experienced problems with this module on 3.0.x?

I forked the module and added the functionality, you can find the module at github: https://github.com/flydev-fr/MarkupTwitterFeed

To search hashtag use it as the following :

$options = array(
    'searchQuery' => 'ProcessWire',
    'limit' => 3
);
$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed');
$out =  $t->search($options);
echo $out;

The function search() act like render().

Thanks again for the suggestion (searching for hashtag). I think we can improve it a bit, let me know for any needs.

Hello,

If you use this module, you may be interested by my fork https://github.com/jlj/MarkupTwitterFeed, that adds the following features to the official MarkupTweeterFeed module:

  • support of the recent Twitter extended tweet format (tweets longer than 140 chars);
  • support of emoji characters in tweets;
  • display of image in a tweet (only the first image is displayed in the curent version);
  • display of video in a tweet (with a html5 video markup);
  • for retweets, display of the original author and avatar in the tweet.

Also, it allows a more flexible per-item rendering, as in the following example:

$t = $modules->get('MarkupTwitterFeed');
$t->limit = 10; 

$renderOptions = array(
    'showDate' => 'before, after',
    'dateFormat' => __("M j, Y"), // Tweet block date format
    'listItemOpen' => "\n\t<div class='tweet-item'>",
    'listItemClose' => "</div>",
    'listItemText' => "<i class='fa fa-twitter'></i> <span class='tweet-text'>{text}</span>",
    'listItemDate' => " <div class='date'><i class='fa fa-calendar'></i> {date}</div>", 
    'listItemLink' => "<a rel='nofollow' href='{href}'>{url}</a>", 
    'videoAttributes' => "autoplay loop muted",
    'preserveLineBreaks' => 'coalesce',
);

foreach($t as $tweet) {
  echo $t->renderItem($tweet, $renderOptions);
}

Examples from my website:

Capture d’écran 2016-11-13 à 16.19.17.pngCapture d’écran 2016-11-13 à 16.19.50.png

This module has been tested with pw 2.7.2 only, so I cannot guarantee the proper working with 3.0… :-)

Hope this will be useful for others here.

@jean-luc Nice. Any chance of issuing your updates as a pull request to the original repo?

Already done that (https://github.com/ryancramerdesign/MarkupTwitterFeed/pull/5), but the previous pull request I did for this same module in January 2015 has stayed unanswered, so I don't know if this one will be integrated…

Thanks for this very useful fork! It would be rad if it integrated @flydev 's fork too for hashtag search!

Jean Luc, 

I have installed your fork on Processwire 3.0.42 and get the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'site' (T_STRING), expecting ',' or ')'

File: .../modules/MarkupTwitterFeed/tmhOAuth/tmhOAuth.php:14

Any ideas how to get around this? I upgrade your module over the one from Ryan. 

 

Thanks

Hi @erikvanberkum

I have not tried the MarkupTwitterFeed module with Processwire 3, but I can tell what caused the error here:

Actually the original tmhOAuth.php:14 is:

defined('__DIR__') or define('__DIR__', dirname(__FILE__));

This code makes the (visibly wrong here) assumption that PHP magic constant __DIR__ is not expanded when placed between single quotes. Here, __DIR__  was replaced by its value (a  PHP expression) at compile time, and the surrounding quotes around it cause a syntax error.

To solve this, you can simply comment or remove line 14 in tmhOAuth.php. Doing so which should be perfectly safe because __DIR__ is defined (probably by processwire), and so the check is not needed. :)

[Edit] __DIR__ is available since PHP 5.3.0, so with Processwire 3.x requiring PHP version 5.3.8 or higher, it is actually safe to delete line 14 of tmhOAuth.php.

Hope this helps.

Hi @ryan

 

I've been implementing the module in a project and first of all, it's a really nice module!

I have just 1 consideration, you have text for the most basic items (date, link, etc) but the text from the tweet is formatted without an HTML tag for example <p></p>.
Maybe it is possible to implement this? Then it would be possible to style the text itself better.

@jean-luc I've installed your fork of the module but am having a couple of issues with getting it to display correctly. Using the Specifying options example: I can't get images from Twitter to display. If I try Or you can iterate the feed rather to generate your own markup... I get an error – Error: Exception: Method MarkupTwitterFeed::renderItem does not exist or is not callable in this context (line 519).

After a bit of further work, I'm now getting a parse error – Parse Error: syntax error, unexpected '[', expecting ')' (line 284 of /var/www/xxxxxx/site/modules/MarkupTwitterFeed/MarkupTwitterFeed.module)

The line in question is –

$linkHtml = str_replace(['{href}', '{url}'], [wire('sanitizer')->entities($u['expanded_url']), $u['display_url']], $options['listItemLink']);

      PageMjmlToHtml
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/PageMjmlToHtml
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/page-mjml-to-html/ (pending approval)
      A module allowing you to write your Processwire template using MJML and get a converted HTML output using MJML API.
      This is considered to be in alpha and as such needs some testing before being used in production!

      About
      Created by Mailjet, MJML is a markup language making it a breeze to create newsletters displayed consistently across all email clients.
      Write your template using MJML combined with Processwire’s API and this module will automatically convert your code into a working newsletter thanks to their free-to-use Rest API.
      Prerequisite
      For this module to work you will need to get an API key and paste it in the module’s configuration.
      Usage
      Once your credentials are validated, select the template(s) in which you’re using the MJML syntax, save and go visualize your page(s) to see if everything’s good. You will either get error/warning messages or your email properly formatted and ready-to-go.
      From there you can copy/paste the raw generated code in an external mailing service or distribute your newsletter using ProMailer.
      Features
      The MJML output is cached to avoid repetitive API calls Not cached if there are errors/warnings Cleared if the page is saved Cleared if the template file has been modified A simple (dumb?) code viewer highlights lines with errors/warnings A button is added to quickly copy the raw code of the generated newsletter Not added if the page is rendered outside of a PageView Only visible to users with the page’s edit permission A shortcut is also added under “View” in the edit page to open the raw code in a new tab Multi-languages support
      Notes
      The code viewer is only shown to superusers. If there’s an error the page will display:
      Only its title for guests Its title and a message inviting to contact the administrator for editors If you are using the markup regions output strategy, it might be best to not append files to preserve your MJML markup before calling the MJML API. This option is available in the module’s settings.

      Hi guys!
      I'm a bit anxious because this is the first module I present! (beta modulo) But I will finally be able to share something with the community too! :)
      This is a BETA version of the PayPal payment system called: PayPal Commerce Platform.
      It is an advanced system (Business Pro account is needed) that brings various benefits in terms of fees and above all integrates direct payment with credit/debit cards. 
      The module integrates with Padloper 0.0.2, which is the current installation I'm using.
      This system integrates the classic PayPal buy button, the alternative or local payment method and the new payment system: credit/debit cards that doesn't go through the PayPal account. It is a Stripe-style payment, it connects directly with the bank and integrates 3D security validation.
      I say that it is a BETA because this module currently only works with Sandbox account, to put it live you need to change API url manually (manually for the moment).
      Because this module is not ready for live:
      I would like to have your opinion on how I built the module (is the first one I do). I don't want to share something that is not fish but I need a comparison with someone more experienced than me, for be sure that this is the best way to code the module.
      If you want to try this I created a git, you will find all the instructions for installation and correct operation. (Git has a MIT licensed)
      https://github.com/MarcooRo/processwire-PayPal-Commerce-Platform I hope I did something that you guys can like :)

      (once again I was surprised to see a work of mine pop up in the newsletter, this time without even listing the module on PW modules website 😅. Thx @teppo !)
      FieldtypeQRCode
      Github: https://github.com/romaincazier/FieldtypeQRCode
      Modules directory: https://processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-qrcode/
      A simple fieldtype generating a QR Code from the public URL of the page, and more.
      Using the PHP library QR Code Generator by Kazuhiko Arase.

      Options
      In the field’s Details tab you can change between .gif or .svg formats. If you select .svg you will have the option to directly output the markup instead of a base64 image. SVG is the default.
      You can also change what is used to generate the QR code and even have several sources. The accepted sources (separated by a comma) are: httpUrl, editUrl, or the name of any text/URL/file/image field.
      If LanguageSupport is installed the compatible sources (httpUrl, text field, ...) will return as many QR codes as there are languages. Note however that when outputting on the front-end, only the languages visible to the user will be generated.
      Formatting
      Unformatted value
      When using $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field") it returns an array with the following structure:
      [ [ "label" => string, // label used in the admin "qr" => string, // the qrcode image "source" => string, // the source, as defined in the configuration "text" => string // and the text used to generate the qrcode ], ... ] Formatted value
      The formatted value is an <img>/<svg> (or several right next to each other). There is no other markup.
      Should you need the same markup as in the admin you could use:
      $field = $fields->get("qrcode_field"); $field->type->markupValue($page, $field, $page->getUnformatted("qrcode_field")); But it’s a bit cumbersome, plus you need to import the FieldtypeQRCode's css/js. Best is to make your own markup using the unformatted value.
      Static QR code generator
      You can call FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCode to generate any QR code you want. Its arguments are:
      string $text bool $svg Generate the QR code as svg instead of gif ? (default=true) bool $markup If svg, output its markup instead of a base64 ? (default=false) Hooks
      Please have a look at the source code for more details about the hookable functions.
      Examples
      $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::getQRText", function($event) { $page = $event->arguments("page"); $event->return = $page->title; // or could be: $event->return = "Your custom text"; }) $wire->addHookAfter("FieldtypeQRCode::generateQRCodes", function($event) { $qrcodes = $event->return; // keep everything except the QR codes generated from editUrl foreach($qrcodes as $key => &$qrcode) { if($qrcode["source"] === "editUrl") { unset($qrcodes[$key]); } } unset($qrcode); $event->return = $qrcodes; })

      AppApiFile adds the /file endpoint to the AppApi routes definition. Makes it possible to query files via the api. 
      This module relies on the base module AppApi, which must be installed before AppApiFile can do its work.
      Features
      You can access all files that are uploaded at any ProcessWire page. Call api/file/route/in/pagetree?file=test.jpg to access a page via its route in the page tree. Alternatively you can call api/file/4242?file=test.jpg (e.g.,) to access a page by its id. The module will make sure that the page is accessible by the active user.
      The GET-param "file" defines the basename of the file which you want to get.
      The following GET-params (optional) can be used to manipulate an image:
      width height maxwidth maxheight cropX cropY Use GET-Param format=base64 to receive the file in base64 format.

      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.
