processwire webfont

Recommended Posts

Had fun to create a webfont with only one single glyph: Processwire-Logo Unicode-Letter:  (Unicode Block "For Private Use")
I created first an svg with inkscape and created the font-set with http://icomoon.io/app (very nice website!)

Like it, use it, waste it. :rolleyes:

Nice!

Would you mind creating three other glyphs? It would be nice having "process" and "wire" as two seperate glyphs as they are often coloured differently. Also the "w" from wire would be a nice addition to do a "picture sign" for navigations.

@all
thanks for the laurels


@felix
this shouldn't be a problem, most of the work is done. But first of all I would like to clear up the rights. I don't know who created the logo respectively who is the owner of the copyright license. Generally I am not in the theme of typefont licensing.
Before I made the post didn't really thougt about that. Maybe somebody could bring some light in this issue ...

Any progress on this?

I'd love using it in my upcoming Theme!

Just found this thread: http://processwire.com/talk/topic/1920-processwire-logos-download/ - Michael van Laar did the vector work for the logo.

I actually don't think there will be a legal problem with making a font of it: As long as you don't alter it to say "mySuperAwsomeOwnCMSWire" it's used as intended (for branding pw instances).

I think the best way to implement this would be ligatures (process and wire) as well as the letter "w". There is an option in iconmoon to do this: you can just upload 3 .svg graphics, select ligatures from the options menu, enter process for the first ligature and wire for the second and there you go (in fact i already did that for my theme yesterday  :)).

I made the logo. Its just mahalia and avenir (which I licensed through myfonts.com). Its totally fine with me to have the logo font (i love it!), so long as it's ok with the fonts/license (?). I would think it would be, but maybe somebody else knows more about this.

I think WillyC is correct on that one. The term "font" means an entire character set. As for the resulting logo: Whether in an SVG, font-set, PNG, GIF, JPG, EPS, etc. the logo is a flat image (whether vector or bitmap). The file format means little. I don't see any difference between a font-set with the PW logo in it and a PNG or EPS file of the logo.

A logo is a logo, a font is a font. If the logo was created with a licensed font, the owner of the logo can do whatever he wants with it (if it was created with an unlicensed font, it shouldn't exist anyway). Including breaking it in parts and release it as a font. I'm not supporting this by any law, but I'm pretty sure of it based on experience and common sense.

the great thing about having this logo as an icomoon font would be that you could easily change the color and size without having to generate any images, so some sites where the footer is dark, the logo could be light grey or whatever color to match the site...

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImageReference. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from selectable sources. Sources can be: 
      a predefined folder in site/templates/ and/or a  page (and optionally its children) and/or the page being edited and/or any page on the site CAUTION: this module is under development and not quite yet in a production-ready state. So please test it carefully.
      UPDATE: the new version v2.0.0 introduces a breaking change due to renaming the module. If you have an older version already installed, you need to uninstall it and install the latest master version.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference
      Install from URL: https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference/archive/master.zip
      Read on for features and use cases.
      Features
      Images can be loaded from a folder inside site/templates/ or site/assets Images in that folder can be uploaded and deleted from within the inputfield Images can be loaded from other pages defined in the field settings Images can be organized into categories. Child pages of the main 'image source page' serve as categories mages can be loaded from any page on the site From the API side, images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.), even the images from a folder Image thumbnails are loaded into inputfield by ajax on demand Source images on other pages can be edited from within this field. Markup of SVG images can be rendered inline with `echo $image->svgcontent` Image names are fully searchable through the API $pages->find('fieldname.filename=xyz.png'); $pages->find('fieldname.filename%=xy.png'); Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message with links to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. This field type can be used with marcrura's Settings Factory module to store images on settings pages, which was not possible with other image field types When to use ?
      If you want to let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site (e.g. icons, but not limited to that).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images that live on other pages or inside a folder are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Installation and setup instructions can be found on github.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Install from URL: https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImageReference/archive/master.zip
      Eventually this will go in the module directory, too. But it needs some more testing before I submit it. So I'd really appreciate your assistance.
      Thanks to all who contributed their feedback and suggestions which made this module what it is now.

      I am having problems uploading svg images in the the latest pw 3.0.98. It shows the preview and has the spinner on top of it, and just gets stuck on that.
      Worked fine in the previous version of PW

      Hey!
      We use Processwire in for Blue World Content Section and did some fancy SVG Primitive lazyloading for our images.
      How do you like it: https://www.blue-tomato.com/blue-world/
      We also wrote an article about how we did it:

      I am currently working on a website in process wire.  I created an image field and added svg as a valid file extension and could upload a png image and a jpg image but when I try to upload a svg image it is stuck loading at 100%.  I figured out that the image field does not take the extension svg even if I add it as an extension. and I was wondering if their is any way to upload a svg image to an image field in processwire?
      I am working with processwire version 3.0.61

      Hi all and thanks again for a perfect product!
      I'm glad to see Processwire growing and becoming a strong, popular product. The new look of admin interface (uikit-based) is nice and minimalistic. Maybe it's the starting point to think about the consistent identity for the whole Processwire project.
      The only thing which is more or less consistent now is the main Processwire color. Somewhate between red and maroon, I call it "Thai color" because it's very popular in Thailand. You meet this color at almost any page related to Processwire, and it's good because this color is very distinctive.
      But what's about PW logo? There's no consistency. And, i'm unhappy to reveal it, the PW logo (at least the sign, not the text part) is not absolutely original.
      There are at least three different Processwire logos:
       The text part of logo at PW homepage (and pure-textual logo in most admin themes, e.g. Reno). The sign part of logo present at PW homepage. The new logo (only sign, textless) present in the new Uikit admin theme. For sure it's too much. A single, unique, consistent logo could be better.
      As to the sign -- small b in circle -- just look at Beats Audio logo which is very similar. And even worse: there's a CMS which is very popular in Russia and called Bitrix, and it has a very similar logo.
      So i would like to propose another vision of PW logo. Unique, original, but being inherited from current PW logos. It's only a first approach, will be glad to polish it in case of positive feedback. And thanks again for a great product!
