Module: Process Link Checker

Recommended Posts

This is a beta release, so some extra caution is recommended. So far the module has been successfully tested on at least ProcessWire 2.7.2 and 3.0.18, but at least in theory it should work for 2.4/2.5 versions of ProcessWire too.
 
GitHub repo: https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessLinkChecker (see README.md for more techy details, settings etc.)
 
What you see is ...
 
This is a module that adds back-end tools for tracking down broken links and unnecessary redirects. That's pretty much all there is to these views right now; I'm still contemplating whether it should also provide a link text section (for SEO purposes etc.)  and/or other features.
 
The magic behind the scenes
 
The admin tool (Process module) is about half of Link Checker; the other half is a PHP class called Link Crawler. This is a tool for collecting links from a ProcessWire site, analysing them and storing the outcome to custom database tables.
 
Link Crawler is intended to be triggered via a cron task, but there's also a GUI tool for running the checker. This is a slow process and can result in issues, but for smaller sites and debugging purposes the GUI method works just fine. Just be patient; the data will be there once you wait long enough :)
 
Now what?
 
For the time being I'd appreciate any comments about the way this is heading and/or whether it's useful to you at all. What would you add to make it more useful for your own use cases? I'm going to continue working on this for sure (it's been a really fun project), but wouldn't mind being pushed to the correct direction early on.
 
This module is already in active use on two relatively big sites I manage. Lately I haven't had any issues with the module, but please consider this a beta release nevertheless; it hasn't been widely tested, and that alone is a reason to avoid calling it "stable" quite yet.

Teppo this looks fantastic, nice work! While I haven't yet been able to test it out here I will be soon, as I have a regular need for a tool like this. It's also one of those things that come up with clients a lot: "how do I keep track of when a link no longer works?". I've been using Google Webmaster tools for 404 discovery in the past, but it's often hard to separate the noise from the goods there, and it's not particularly client friendly either. Regarding the cron side of this, I immediately thought of IftRunner (which itself is triggered by cron) and how this might work great as a PageAction with IftRunner. PageActions can also be executed by ListerPro and presumably other tools in the future as well.

Thanks, Ryan. Let me know how it handles once you do test it, would be interesting to know. My tests so far have been very limited in scope, so I'm fully expecting a pile of issues (and most likely a few things I've completely missed).. though of course the opposite would be cool too :)

You've given me something new to consider there, will definitely take IftRunner and PageAction part into consideration.

Hangs for me too on a test server. Great Module though. Love the ability to run the check directly in the Admin.

Looks like I've missed some messages here. I'm currently using this on a couple of sites with no issues; ProcessWire 2.7.2 and 3.0.18, on two separate servers.  Would be interesting to hear if aforementioned issues still exist.

Can someone give me an example code of how to initialize this module with a cron job? Do I need to create a cron job module or can I use ready.php?

Thanks for your hints!

@SteveB: shouldn't require any tricks, but to be honest I've never used such a setup myself, so it's probably a mistake on my side. I'll take a closer look at that ASAP :)

@Juergen: README includes instructions for setting up a cron job. The gist of it is that you should make a cron job that runs the module's own Init.php file periodically.

To be honest I'm not entirely sure what you mean by a cron job module or ready.php in this context – but please let me know what I'm missing!

@Juergen

To setup a cronjob is really easy, but you have to understand some basics first.

The cronjob past has nothing to do with ProcessWire. It is a separate program running on your server which is able to run commands at a certain time. It is either configured in your hosting admin panel (easiest, ask your hosting provider) or you can set-up it yourself through the command line. You can follow this example if you're running a Linux based server.

You need to understand that you can execute a PHP file from the command line. Teppo has provided us with such a script that will activate the link checker. The file is "/ProcessLinkChecker/Init.php". This is the one the cronjob needs to run. If you are unsure what the correct path is you can ask your hosting provider or login into the shell and navigate to the "ProcessLinkChecker" folder and type "pwd". That will give you the current path. It will be something like:

/srv/username/apps/appname/public/site/modules/ProcessLinkChecker/

Combine the path with your new knowlegde from the tutorial and you can set it up.

p.s. If you are on Windows you need to create a "Task" in "Windows Task Scheduler".

p.s. 2 You don't have to wait to test if the link is working since you can test the script by running:

/usr/bin/php /path/to/site/modules/ProcessLinkChecker/Init.php >/dev/null 2>&1

p.s. 3 this whole timing stuff can be pretty  confusing so use a tool like crontab.guru.

p.s. 4 after proofreading this post now it seems pretty hard O0, but believe me after a few times you can set it up in a few minutes.

Great module thanks teppo!!

I can't edit crontab via ssh am only able to add crons via admin panel and there I can only provide a url and no path so without changing .htaccess I can't just run domain.com/site/modules/ProcessLinkChecker/Init.php..right?

But I have already set up crons so I thought about copying contents of Init.php in an existing cron which should trigger it..

$linkCrawlerPath = $config->paths->siteModules . 'ProcessLinkChecker/LinkCrawler.php';
if (file_exists($linkCrawlerPath)) {
	require $linkCrawlerPath;
	$crawler = new \LinkCrawler();
	$crawler->start();
}

But then I'm getting those

Notice: Undefined variable: wire in site/modules/ProcessLinkChecker/LinkCrawler.php on line 144
Fatal error: Call to undefined function wire() in site/modules/ProcessLinkChecker/LinkCrawler.php on line 144

Uh, I'm running 3.0.25 that's why the backslash

Any ideas? Or alternative paths? And, easier I included the Init.php in my cron script with the same result..

EDIT: Same error (at least the top one "undefined variable wire") when running from ProcessLinkChecker admin page..

@Can: The issue you mentioned should be fixed in the latest version of LinkCrawler.php, though please let me know if it still persists. The problem was that LinkCrawler didn't have access to $wire from the global scope, but since PROCESSWIRE was already defined, it wasn't attempting to instantiate ProcessWire either.

I'm no longer entirely sure that current behaviour makes sense in this case (perhaps I should rather allow the user to pass an instance of ProcessWire to LinkCrawler when instantiating it) but at least this seems to fix the issue at hand :)

After removing content from site/init.php and site/ready.php for now (throwing errors about redeclared functions) I'm getting this now:

throw new Exception("Unrecognized render method");

I'm invoking LinkCrawler like this within an external script which bootstraps processwire (so not within template file, maybe that's the problem?)

if ($modules->get('ProcessLinkChecker')) {
	require $config->paths->siteModules . 'ProcessLinkChecker/LinkCrawler.php';
	$crawler = new \LinkCrawler();
	$crawler->start();
}

@Can: Sorry for the delay. So far I haven't been able to reproduce the issue you're seeing, which is making it quite difficult to debug. This is one of those cases where it would be tremendously useful to be able to check which values LinkCrawler gets from the Process module, what $this->config contains, what that "unrecognized" render method really is, and so on :) 

Not calling the module from a template file isn't a problem, but I'm a bit confused why it would throw the "unrecognized render method" error. Could you check what the module config page of ProcessLinkChecker lists as the render method?

This error should only happen if render_method config setting contains something weird or if it's undefined. At this point I can only assume that either LinkCrawler doesn't have access to the ProcessLinkChecker module (it tries to get it's config from there) or those config variables are somehow mishandled.

Just checking, but is the above snippet the only code in that file? I assume it's bootstrapping the same ProcessWire installation that has ProcessLinkChecker installed, right?

Hey @Can,

I just ran into some small things myself installing and configuring this module. Since I don't have shell access to the server (yet) I created a workaround. I've created a template and page called "cronjob" so I could trigger the script from an url (www.domainname.com/cronjobs/?key=123).

In the template.php I do a simple check on a get variable (key) to prevent people from accessing it on purpose. From there I include:

// Skip access since the guest user is loading the script
// Perhaps you might want to look into the permission check stuff since you're bootstrapping ProcessWire
$options = array('noPermissionCheck' => true);

// Load the Module to get the className
$linkCheckerModule = $this->modules->getModule("ProcessLinkChecker", $options);

// Include Teppo's LinkCrawler
require $config->paths->siteModules . $linkCheckerModule->className() . '/LinkCrawler.php';

// Start crawling
$crawler = new LinkCrawler();
$crawler->start();

// Stop ProcessWire from executing
$this->halt();

This seems to work fine for me. I've got a lot of data.

I still get some notices like Array to string conversion in */site/modules/ProcessLinkChecker/LinkCrawler.php on line 335*. I'll look into them tomorrow.

You mean $this->config in LinkCrawler.php? Would say it looks quite good, I put a var_dump($this->config) on line 151 (right after $this->config has been populated) and I'm getting this in the error message after clicking on check now on /processwire/setup/link-checker/

Spoiler

Don't now what you mean? Here /processwire/module/edit?name=ProcessLinkChecker right? don't know what I have to look for?!

No but for the tests I exit; right afterwards and those lines are the very first lines right after opening php and bootstrapping pw..

Thanks for your workaround @arjen think I'll give it a try soon :)

      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:
      ["type"] string(3) "jpg" ["imageType"] int(2) ["mimetype"] string(10) "image/jpeg" ["width"] int(500) ["height"] int(331) ["landscape"] bool(true) ["ratio"] float(1.5105740181269) ["bits"] int(8) ["channels"] int(3) ["colspace"] string(9) "DeviceRGB" -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getPimVariations

      getPimVariations()
      return: array of Pageimages Collect all pimVariations of this Pageimage as a Pageimages array of Pageimage objects. All variations created by the core ImageSizer are not included in the collection.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * removePimVariations

      removePimVariations()
      return: pim - (class handle) Removes all image variations that was created using the PIM, all variations that are created by the core ImageSizer are left untouched!
      -------------------------------------------------------------------
      * 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. Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * resize

      resize($dst_width=0, $dst_height=0, $sharpen_mode=null)
      param: $dst_width - (integer) default is 0 param: $dst_height - (integer) default is 0 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 have to set width and / or height, like with pageimage size(). Additionally, after resizing, an automatic sharpening can be done with one of the three modes.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * stepResize

      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.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * unsharpMask

      unsharpMask($amount, $radius, $threshold)
      param: $amount - (integer) 0 - 500, default is 100 param: $radius - (float) 0.1 - 50, default is 0.5 param: $threshold - (integer) 0 - 255, default is 3 return: pim - (class handle) Applys sharpening to the current memory image like the equal named filter in photoshop.
      Credit for the used unsharp mask algorithm goes to Torstein Hønsi who has created the function back in 2003.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * 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.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * canvas

      canvas($width, $height, $bgcolor, $position, $padding)
      param: $width = mixed, associative array with options or integer, - mandatory! param: $height = integer, - mandatory if $width is integer! param: $bgcolor = array with rgb or rgba, - default is array(255, 255, 255, 0) param: $position = one out of north, northwest, center, etc, - default is center param: $padding = integer as percent of canvas length, - default is 0 return: pim - (class handle) This method creates a canvas according to the given width and height and position the memory image onto it.
      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()
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * flip

      flip($vertical=false)
      param: $vertical - (boolean) default is false return: pim - (class handle) This flips the image horizontal by default. (mirroring)
      If the boolean param is set to true, it flips the image vertical instead.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * rotate

      rotate($degree, $backgroundColor=127)
      param: $degree - (integer) valid is -360 0 360 param: $backgroundColor - (integer) valid is 0 - 255, default is 127 return: pim - (class handle) This rotates the image. Positive values for degree rotates clockwise, negative values counter clockwise. If you use other values than 90, 180, 270, the additional space gets filled with the defined background color.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * 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.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * grayscale

      grayscale()
      return: pim - (class handle) Turns an image into grayscale. Remove all colors.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * sepia

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

      * colorize

      colorize($anyColor)
      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".

      pixelate($blockSize=3)
      param: $blockSize - (integer) 1 - ??, default is 3 return: pim - (class handle) This apply the well known PixelLook to the memory image. It is stronger with higher values for blockSize.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * emboss

      emboss()
      return: pim - (class handle) This apply the emboss effect to the memory image.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * edgedetect

      edgedetect()
      return: pim - (class handle) This apply the edge-detect effect to the memory image.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * getMemoryImage

      getMemoryImage()
      return: memoryimage - (GD-Resource) If you want apply something that isn't available with that class, you simply can check out the current memory image and apply your image - voodoo - stuff
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * setMemoryImage

      setMemoryImage($memoryImage)
      param: $memoryImage - (GD-Resource) return: pim - (class handle) If you are ready with your own image stuff, you can check in the memory image for further use with the class.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * watermarkLogo

      watermarkLogo($pngAlphaImage, $position='center', $padding=2)
      param: $pngAlphaImage - mixed [systemfilepath or PageImageObject] to/from a PNG with transparency 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 5, padding to the borders in percent of the images length! return: pim - (class handle) You can pass a transparent image with its filename or as a PageImage to the method. 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.

      TrelloWire
      This is a module that allows you to automatically create Trello cards for ProcessWire pages and update them when the pages are updated. This allows you to setup connected workflows. Card properties and change handling behaviour can be customized through the extensive module configuration. Every action the module performs is hookable, so you can modify when and how cards are created as much as you need to. The module also contains an API-component that makes it easy to make requests to the Trello API and build your own connected ProcessWire-Trello workflows.
      Warning: This module requires ProcessWire 3.0.167 which is above the current stable master release at the moment.
      Features
      All the things the module can do for you without any custom code: Create a new card on Trello whenever a page is added or published (you can select applicable templates). Configure the target board, target list, name and description for new cards. Add default labels and checklists to the card. Update the card whenever the page is updated (optional). When the status of the card changes (published / unpublished, hidden / unhidden, trashed / restored or deleted), move the card to a different list or archive or delete it (configurable). You can extend this through hooks in many ways: Modifiy when and how cards are created. Modify the card properties (Target board & list, title, description, et c.) before they are sent to Trello. Create your own workflows by utilizing an API helper class with many convenient utility methods to access the Trello API directly. Feedback & Future Plans
      Let me know what you think! In particular:
      If you find any bugs report them here or on Github, I'll try to fix them. This module was born out of a use-case for a client project where we manage new form submissions through Trello. I'm not sure how many use-cases there are for this module. If you do use it, tell me about it! The Trello API is pretty extensive, I'll try to add some more helper methods to the TrelloWireApi class (let me know if you need anything in particular). I'll think about how the module can support different workflows that include Twig – talk to me if you have a use-case! Next steps could be a dashboard to manage pages that are connected to a Trello card, or a new section in the settings tab to manage the Trello connection. But it depends on whether there is any interest in this 🙂 Links

      ProcessWire InputfieldRepeaterMatrixDuplicate
      Thanks to the great ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" I have the possibility to create complex repeater items. With it I have created a quite powerful page builder. Many different content modules, with many more possible design options. The RepeaterMatrix module supports the cloning of items, but only within the same page. Now I often have the case that very design-intensive pages and items are created. If you want to use a content module on a different page (e.g. in the same design), you have to rebuild each item manually every time.
      This module extends the commercial ProModule "RepeaterMatrix" by the function to duplicate repeater items from one page to another page. The condition is that the target field is the same matrix field from which the item is duplicated. This module is currently understood as proof of concept. There are a few limitations that need to be considered. The intention of the module is that this functionality is integrated into the core of RepeaterMatrix and does not require an extra module.
      Check out the screencast
      What the module can do
      Duplicate multible repeater items from one page to another No matter how complex the item is Full support for file and image fields Multilingual support Support of Min and Max settings Live synchronization of clipboard between multiple browser tabs. Copy an item and simply switch the browser tab to the target page and you will immediately see the past button Support of multiple RepeaterMatrix fields on one page Configurable which roles and fields are excluded Configurable dialogs for copy and paste Duplicated items are automatically pasted to the end of the target field and set to hidden status so that changes are not directly published Automatic clipboard update when other items are picked Automatically removes old clipboard data if it is not pasted within 6 hours Delete clipboard itself by clicking the selected item again Benefit: unbelievably fast workflow and content replication What the module can't do
      Before an item can be duplicated in its current version, the source page must be saved. This means that if you make changes to an item and copy this, the old saved state will be duplicated Dynamic loading is currently not possible. Means no AJAX. When pasting, the target page is saved completely No support for nested repeater items. Currently only first level items can be duplicated. Means a repeater field in a repeater field cannot be duplicated. Workaround: simply duplicate the parent item Dynamic reloading and adding of repeater items cannot be registered. Several interfaces and events from the core are missing. The initialization occurs only once after the page load event Attention, please note!
      Nested repeaters cannot be supported technically. Therefore a check is made to prevent this. However, a nested repeater can only be detected if the field name ends for example with "_repeater1234". For example, if your MatrixRepeater field is named like this: "content_repeater" or "content_repeater123", this field is identified as nested and the module does not load. In version 2.0.1 the identification has been changed so that a field ending with the name repeater is only detected as nested if at least a two-digit number sequence follows. But to avoid this problem completely, make sure that your repeater matrix field does NOT end with the name "repeater".
