Hi, new version is here, as I promised. It's currently on the dev branch: https://github.com/uiii/ProcessWire-FieldtypePDF/tree/dev. The readme is updated so everything should be clear. It contains tests and they successfully passed for PW 2.4, 2.5. If you can try the module, I'd be glad to hear your opinions and suggestions.

Oh yeah, my hosting provider said they couldn't update GS to 9.x...

Thanks for the update - will check it out as soon as I can. :)

I'm trying this (dev) on PW 2.6 and it works fine so far but I'm not sure why it's using Image field ... like it has the pdf file but showing an image that in PW 2.6 has a dialog for cropping etc. The file basename is a link that opens a modal where there's an error:

When creating the PDF field I'm seeing configurations same like an image field, but it's not. I'm not sure this is the right direction of how this should work.

Because I'm not able to download/open the PDF itself in the admin like I expect when clicking on the basename. Maybe I get it wrong, but it's not only about creating an image of a pdf but also having the pdf itself. So there maybe the best way is to introduce your own "renderItem()" method again instead of using the parent method.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I haven't tried the PW 2.6 yet. The reason why I used image inputfield is to render the PDF thumbnails exactly the same way as images. But maybe you are right, I should have used my own render method. I'll check it out.

DEV branch is updated, should be PW 2.6 compatible now. And InputfieldImage is not parent of InputfieldPDF anymore. Check it out.

Not sure why this worked, but I had to modify the ImageMagick code in PagePDF.php a bit to get it working on GoDaddy shared hosting (I know, I know...):

$imagick = new Imagick($this->filename . "[0]");
$imagick->setResolution(300, 300);
$imagick->setOption('pdf:use-cropbox', 'true');
//$imagick->setColorspace(Imagick::COLORSPACE_RGB);
//$imagick->readimage($this->filename . "[0]");
$imagick->setImageFormat('png');
$imagick->scaleImage($width, $height);
$imagick->writeImage($filename);

I believe it has to do with GoDaddy running old versions of IM and GhostScript, but I'm not certain.

Hi @evan,
yes, it's probably because of the old version of IM and GS. What was the problem exactly (error message, ...), can you post it here? I also find that setColorspace method is supported since IM version 6.5.7, so I should change the code to reflect that. What is the problem with readImage method? Will it work if you comment only setColorspace?

It's been a while since I did this, but I think you will have problems with the change to loading the image at the start rather than using readImage. The problem is with setResolution - this needs to happen before the image is read. The image is rasterized as soon as it is read, so setting the resolution afterwards can result in a poorer quality image.

The setColorspace() method doesn't exist on my server, as IM is too old (ImageMagick 6.5.4-7):

Error: 	Call to undefined method Imagick::setColorspace() (line 16 of /path/to/public_html/site/modules/FieldtypePDF/PagePDF.php)

When I use readFile(), I get the following error (not the real path, obviously):

- Postscript delegate failed `/path/to/file.pdf': No such file or directory @ pdf.c/ReadPDFImage/611

From what I read this is common if you're using a pre-9.x version of GhostScript (server has 8.70).

I haven't seen any visible quality issues with declaring the image with the Imagick object, but I also haven't been looking too carefully -- mostly glad to get it working at all.

Hi, I've been doing some research and testing. But I don't find a way to get it properly working on older versions of ghostscript. But @evan's solution works, it produces low quality images and it's properties cannot be affected because the pdf is read on the Imagick object creating. The readImage method always throws the mentioned exception. Despite of this it is useful where you cannot update GS or IM (e.g. shared hosting). So I added it to the module as fallback mode. It can be turned on in the module's settings. See DEV branch.

Any chance to update this module for 2.5+? Aka making the dev to the new master?

Hi, sorry I din't do that yet. I stucked, because I wanted to test it properly first. I wanted to make automated unit tests, but in processwire it isn't (maybe wasn't) so easy, I wanted to use wireshell to help with it, but somehow I moved my activity somewhere else. I can merge the branches, but I would like to have some feedback if it is working correctly or not. Did you try it? I've tried it in PW 2.5 and 2.6 and it looks it's working, but I'm not sure about PW 2.7+. If you can test it a give me feedback I would appreciate it. Thanks

Hi Richard,

I've tried out this module on version 2.6 and it works nicely! 

I've tried installing it in version 3.0 and had to restore the database from backup: I got error messages and couldn't reach the PDF-field anymore. 

The information about compatibility is misleading: on the module page it says compatible with version 3.0, but later on it's stated <3.0.

Too bad I can't used it now, I liked it a lot!

Thanks.

Hi lenoir,

There is a version compatible with 3.0, it is in devns branch, it is separated because i didn't find a way to have one codebase compatible with PW 2.x and 3.x (I can tell you more if you want).

What happend with your pdf files in 3.0? Why did you have to restore the database? Should I fix something?

Cheers,
Richard

Finally I've found out how to support PW 2.x and PW 3.x with one codebase. So here is a new version 1.1.2 compatible with PW 2.5+. I updated the tests as well, turned the script which runs tests against multiple versions of ProcessWire into standalone tool PW-Test.

@ICF Church Hi, I'm trying to solve your issue, but I can't reproduce the error. What version of PHP are you using? During module installation there is a step where the `use` statemenents in source files under FieldtypePDF folder are prefixed with `Processwire\' namespace if PW 3.x detected. Could you please examine what's wrong? Look into this method https://github.com/uiii/ProcessWire-FieldtypePDF/blob/d11ff962d520782fa25215f5ce606886773a5a44/FieldtypePDF.module#L232. Thanks

      PageImage Manipulator, API for version 1 & 2

      The Page Image Manipulator is a module that let you in a first place do ImageManipulations with your PageImages. - And in a second place there is the possibility to let it work on any imagefile that exists in your servers filesystem, regardless if it is a 'known PW-image'.

      The Page Image Manipulator is a Toolbox for Users and Moduledevelopers. It is written to be as close to the Core ImageSizer as possible. Besides the GD-filterfunctions it contains resize, crop, canvas, rotate, flip, sharpen, unsharpMask and 3 watermark methods.



      How does it work?

      You can enter the ImageManipulator by calling the method pim2Load(). After that you can chain together how many actions in what ever order you like. If your manipulation is finished, you call pimSave() to write the memory Image into a diskfile. pimSave() returns the PageImage-Object of the new written file so we are able to further use any known PW-image property or method. This way it integrates best into the ProcessWire flow.

      The three examples above put out the same visual result: a grayscale image with a width of 240px. Only the filenames will slightly differ.

      You have to define a name-prefix that you pass with the pimLoad() method. If the file with that prefix already exists, all operations are skipped and only the desired PageImage-Object gets returned by pimSave(). If you want to force recreation of the file, you can pass as second param a boolean true: pim2Load('myPrefix', true).

      You may also want to get rid of all variations at once? Than you can call $pageimage->pim2Load('myPrefix')->removePimVariations()!

      A complete list of all methods and actions are at the end of this post.
       
      You may also visit the post with tips & examples for users and module developers.


      How to Install
      Download the module Place the module files in /site/modules/PageImageManipulator/ In your admin, click Modules > Check for new modules Click "install" for PageImageManipulator Done! There are no configuration settings needed, just install and use it. Download    (version 0.2.0)
      get it from the Modules Directory History of origins

      http://processwire.com/talk/topic/3278-core-imagemanipulation/


      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      Page Image Manipulator - Methods

      * pimLoad  or  pim2Load, depends on the version you use!

      pimLoad($prefix, $param2=optional, $param3=optional)
      param 1: $prefix - (string) = mandatory! param 2: mixed, $forceRecreation or $options param 3: mixed, $forceRecreation or $options return: pim - (class handle) $options - (array) default is empty, see the next method for a list of valid options! $forceRecreation - (bool) default is false It check if the desired image variation exists, if not or if forceRecreation is set to true, it prepares all settings to get ready for image manipulation
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * setOptions

      setOptions(array $options)
      param: $options - (array) default is empty return: pim - (class handle) Takes an array with any number valid options / properties and set them by replacing the class-defaults and / or the global config defaults optionally set in the site/config.php under imageSizerOptions or imageManipulatorOptions.

      valid options are:
      quality = 1 - 100 (integer) upscaling = true | false (boolean) cropping = true | false (boolean) autoRotation =true | false (boolean) sharpening = 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong' (string) bgcolor = (array) css rgb or css rgba, first three values are integer 0-255 and optional 4 value is float 0-1, - default is array(255,255,255,0) thumbnailColorizeCustom = (array) rgb with values for colorize, integer -255 - 255 (this can be used to set a custom color when working together with Thumbnails-Module)
        outputFormat = 'gif' | 'jpg' | 'png' (Attention: outputFormat cannot be specified as global option in $config->imageManipulatorOptions!) set {singleOption} ($value)
      For every valid option there is also a single method that you can call, like setQuality(90), setUpscaling(false), etc.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * pimSave

      pimSave()
      return: PageImage-Object If a new image is hold in memory, it saves the current content into a diskfile, according to the settings of filename, imagetype, targetFilename and outputFormat. Returns a PageImage-Object!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * release

      release()
      return: void (nothing) if you, for what ever reason, first load image into memory but than do not save it, you should call release() to do the dishes! 😉 If you use pimSave() to leave the ImageManipulator, release() is called automatically.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getOptions

      getOptions()
      return: associative array with all final option values example:
      ["autoRotation"] bool(true) ["upscaling"] bool(false) ["cropping"] bool(true) ["quality"] int(90) ["sharpening"] string(6) "medium" ["targetFilename"] string(96) "/htdocs/site/assets/files/1124/pim_prefix_filename.jpg" ["outputFormat"] string(3) "jpg" get {singleOption} ()
      For every valid option there is also a single method that you can call, like getQuality(), getUpscaling(), etc. See method setOptions for a list of valid options!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getImageInfo

      getImageInfo()
      return: associative array with useful informations of source imagefile example:

      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * removePimVariations

      removePimVariations()

      -------------------------------------------------------------------
      * width

      width($dst_width, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) param: $auto_sharpen - (boolean) default is true was deleted with version 0.0.8, - sorry for breaking compatibility param: $sharpen_mode - (string) possible: 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong', default is 'soft' return: pim - (class handle) Is a call to resize where you prioritize the width, like with pageimage. Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * height

      height($dst_height, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_height - (integer) param: $auto_sharpen - (boolean) default is true was deleted with version 0.0.8, - sorry for breaking compatibility param: $sharpen_mode - (string) possible: 'none' | 'soft' | 'medium' | 'strong', default is 'soft' return: pim - (class handle) Is a call to resize where you prioritize the height, like with pageimage.

      stepResize($dst_width=0, $dst_height=0)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) default is 0 param: $dst_height - (integer) default is 0 return: pim - (class handle) this performs a resizing but with multiple little steps, each step followed by a soft sharpening. That way you can get better result of sharpened images.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * sharpen

      sharpen($mode='soft')
      param: $mode - (string) possible values 'none' | 'soft'| 'medium'| 'strong' return: pim - (class handle) Applys sharpening to the current memory image. You can call it with one of the three predefined pattern, or you can pass an array with your own pattern.

      * smooth

      smooth($level=127)
      param: $level - (integer) 1 - 255, default is 127 return: pim - (class handle) Smooth is the opposite of sharpen. You can define how strong it should be applied, 1 is low and 255 is strong.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * blur

      blur()
      return: pim - (class handle) Blur is like smooth, but cannot called with a value. It seems to be similar like a result of smooth with a value greater than 200.

      * crop

      crop($pos_x, $pos_y, $width, $height)
      param: $pos_x - (integer) start position left param: $pos_y - (integer) start position top param: $width - (integer) horizontal length of desired image part param: $height - (integer) vertical length of desired image part return: pim - (class handle) This method cut out a part of the memory image.

      You can pass an associative options array as the first and only param. With it you have to set width and height and optionally any other valid param. Or you have to set at least width and height as integers.
      Hint: If you want use transparency with rgba and your sourceImage isn't of type PNG, you have to define 'png' as outputFormat with your initially options array or, for example, like this: $image->pimLoad('prefix')->setOutputFormat('png')->canvas(300, 300, array(210,233,238,0.5), 'c', 5)->pimSave()
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * brightness

      brightness($level)
      param: $level - (integer) -255 0 255 return: pim - (class handle) You can adjust brightness by defining a value between -255 and +255. Zero lets it unchanged, negative values results in darker images and positive values in lighter images.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * contrast

      contrast($level)
      param: $level - (integer) -255 0 255 return: pim - (class handle) You can adjust contrast by defining a value between -255 and +255. Zero lets it unchanged, negative values results in lesser contrast and positive values in higher contrast.

      param: $anyColor - (array) like css rgb or css rgba - but with values for rgb -255 - +255,  - value for alpha is float 0 - 1, 0 = transparent  1 = opaque return: pim - (class handle) Here you can adjust each of the RGB colors and optionally the alpha channel. Zero lets the channel unchanged whereas negative values results in lesser / darker parts of that channel and higher values in stronger saturisation of that channel.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * negate

      negate()
      return: pim - (class handle) Turns an image into a "negative".

If the watermark is bigger than the destination-image, it gets shrinked to fit into the targetimage. If it is a small watermark image you can define the position of it:
      NW - N - NE | | | W - C - E | | | SW - S - SE  
      The easiest and best way I have discovered to apply a big transparency watermark to an image is as follows:
      create a square transparent png image of e.g. 2000 x 2000 px, place your mark into the center with enough (percent) of space to the borders. You can see an example here! The $pngAlphaImage get centered and shrinked to fit into the memory image. No hassle with what width and / or height should I use?, how many space for the borders?, etc.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkLogoTiled

      watermarkLogoTiled($pngAlphaImage)
      param: $pngAlphaImage - mixed [systemfilepath or PageImageObject] to/from a PNG with transparency return: pim - (class handle) Here you have to pass a tile png with transparency (e.g. something between 150-300 px?) to your bigger images. It got repeated all over the memory image starting at the top left corner.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkText

      watermarkText($text, $size=10, $position='center', $padding=2, $opacity=50, $trueTypeFont=null)
      param: $text - (string) the text that you want to display on the image param: $size - (integer) 1 - 100, unit = points, good value seems to be around 10 to 15 param: $position - (string) is one out of: N, E, S, W, C, NE, SE, SW, NW,
      - or: north, east, south, west, center, northeast, southeast, southwest, northwest
      default is 'center' param: $padding - (integer) 0 - 25, default is 2, padding to the borders in percent of the images length! param: $opacity- (integer) 1 - 100, default is 50 param: $trueTypeFont - (string) systemfilepath to a TrueTypeFont, default is freesansbold.ttf (is GPL & comes with the module) return: pim - (class handle) Here you can display (dynamic) text with transparency over the memory image. You have to define your text, and optionally size, position, padding, opacity for it. And if you don't like the default font, freesansbold, you have to point to a TrueTypeFont-File of your choice.

      PageImage Manipulator - Example Output


    • By d'Hinnisdaël
      Format Datetime fields as Carbon instances.
      You can find the latest release and the complete readme on Github.
      Installation
      composer require daun/datetime-carbon-format Usage
      All Datetime fields will now be formatted as Carbon instances instead of strings. Some examples:
      // $page->date is a Datetime field // Output format: j/n/Y echo $page->date; // 20/10/2020 echo $page->date->add('7 days'); // 27/10/2020 echo $page->date->format('l, F j'); // Monday, October 20 echo $page->date->year; // 2020 echo $page->date->diffForHumans(); // 28 minutes ago Frontend only
      The ProcessWire admin seems to expect datetime fields to be strings. This module will only return Carbon instances on frontend page views.
      Date output format
      When casting a Carbon instance to a string (usually when outputting the field in a template), the field's date output format will be respected.

      PS. I remember reading about a Carbon module in a recent newsletter, but couldn't find it anywhere. Was that you, @bernhard?

      Hey folks,
      Iam working on a module that extends InputfieldPageTable. I use PageTableExtended as a starting point and all went well so far, except I can't access my config values outside of the module file. The config values allways return the defaults, and not the values in the pw field settings. 

      Here is the code that sets the defaults inside my inputfield module file:
      public function init() { parent::init(); // defaults $this->set('gridMaxWidth', '1600'); $this->set('gridColumns', '12'); } Here is how I add the config field:
      public function ___getConfigInputfields() { $inputfields = parent::___getConfigInputfields(); $fieldsetGrid = $this->modules->get('InputfieldFieldset'); $fieldsetGrid->label = $this->_('Default Grid Settings'); $f = $this->wire('modules')->get('InputfieldText'); $f->attr('name', 'gridMaxWidth'); $f->attr('value', $this->gridMaxWidth); $f->label = $this->_('Container max width'); $f->description = $this->_('Grid container max width in px'); // page name format description $f->notes = $this->_('default is 1600'); // page name format notes $fieldsetGrid->append($f); $inputfields->append($fieldsetGrid); return $inputfields; } Accessing the values outside my module files like this (this gives me the default: 1600, even if I insert another value in the backend field settings):
      $default = $this->wire('modules')->get('InputfieldPageGrid'); $default->gridMaxWidth; Any Ideas?

      How does one enable executables to be uploaded to the File field? Just adding the file extension to the accepted extensions does not seem to work.
