Module: TemplateEngineFactory

Recommended Posts

Nevermind.  Rookie mistake.  I just needed to check if the post.template == "calendar-posting" before trying to access post.event_description.

@gmclelland

Twig sometimes has problems when you try to access a property via magic getter. I consistently use $page->get('my_field') to avoid this issue. So in your example, you could use {{ post.get('event_description') }}.

Thanks @Wanze, I haven't ran into any issues so far, but that's good to know.  The only thing I'm currently stuck on right now is trying to figure out how to get the TwigExtensions module to work with the latest versions of TemplateEngineTwig.  It was working previously before TemplateEngineTwig 1.1.0.  Any help testing is appreciated.

Are you using TwigExtensions library at all in your projects?  If not, don't you need the date functions and text truncating functions?

After I get my sites upgraded to the latest version of TemplateEngineFactory and TemplateEngineTwig, I can start checking into a possible bug I think I see with the new changes to handle Wire404Exception.

Side note:  I really appreciate the work you've done on this module.  To me it is so much cleaner looking at Twig code than looking at a php mixed with html.   I like that in Processwire, I can simply build up my variables in the template to be sent to the view.  That way my views(Twig files) are very simple and contain simple logic only.

Hi @Sipho

Sorry I missed your post. I don't know/use markup regions myself, so it's hard for me to help. Does your code work if you disable the TemplateEngineFactory module? If it works, then somehow markup regions are not respected when your ProcessWire templates are getting rendered by this module. I try to look into this at the end of this week.

Cheers

@Wanze It does work when I disable TemplateEngineFactory (and move my home.php file back into templates/).

I don't really know how ProcessWire renders templates under the hood but it could be that it only renders markup regions of files under templates/.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a look at it. You can take a look at this tutorial to get started using markup regions.

Hi @Wanze

I don't know if it's possible in the current state of the module to disable "Global File Template" for a given template file.

I needed this feature in order to work with a REST API endpoint. The problem is when I try to get JSON data from http://my.sites.sek/api, the markup of the global template file is sent.

 

I forked your module and added an option to ignore the global template file on given template. If it make sense, I can send a pull request.

Hi @Sipho

MarkupRegions is currently only processed during Page::render(). TemplateEngineProcessWire uses TemplateFile::render() to return the markup, where MarkupRegions are not recognized/populated.

Here are the relevant lines: https://github.com/processwire/processwire/blob/master/wire/modules/PageRender.module#L521-L526

It should be possible to integrate this logic into TemplateFile::render via hooks. Unfortunately I do not have much time for ProcessWire these days 😕
I'm happy to accept a pull request though :)

Cheers

Hello @Wanse and all of you,

This plugin is a must, thank you Wanse.

For 2 days I have been searching, I guess I have a pattern problem with my twig templates.

  1. My global template is base.twig
  2. Inside I have {% block home %}{% endblock %} and several includes parts.
  3. Nothing from this block is displayed. It works only if I keep my global template file field empty.
  4. In my home.twig I have
{% extends 'base.twig' %}
{% block home %}
<div id="corps"> <div id="titres">
<div id="titre">{{ page.title }}</div>
</div>
 <div class="hr"></div>
<br>
{% block engagement %}{% endblock %}
{% endblock %}

What do you think ?

In my base.twix I have all my html code...

Thank you

Hello @Sten So what exactly is the problem? Don't you get any output? What happens? What is you path to templates in the config of the module? I have /templates/views and with my twig files in this directory everything works fine. Did you choose twig as the template files suffix?
Your code and extend seem to be correct.
The global template file field has to be empty so you can work with extends like you do

@Sten

Your twig templates look fine, the problem is the global template file setting. Just leave that config empty. This is a "global setting" of the TemplateEngineFactory which is supported by all engines, but actually makes no sense in Twig and generally in engines supporting template inheritance. It was introduced by a feature request, but now I think it's more confusing than useful.

Cheers

Hello Jmartsch and Wanze,

It is great to be assisted, thank you 😊. I changed my config to have the global file field empty. So I put all my *.twig files in the views directory. I created partials directory for parts included in base.twig.
So I keep home.twig and engagement.twig in views.

in home.twig I have
 

{% block home %}
<div id="corps"> <div id="titres">
<div id="titre">{{ page.title }}</div>
</div>
 <div class="hr"></div>
<br>
{% block engagement %}{% endblock %}
{% endblock %}

In engagement.twig, I have
 

{% extends 'home.twig' %}
{% block engagement %}
<p>His cognitis Gallus ut serpens adpetitus telo vel saxo iamque spes extremas opperiens et succurrens saluti suae quavis ratione colligi omnes iussit armatos et cum starent attoniti, districta dentium acie stridens adeste inquit viri fortes mihi periclitanti vobiscum.</p>
<p>Mensarum enim voragines et varias voluptatum inlecebras, ne longius progrediar, praetermitto illuc transiturus quod quidam per ampla spatia urbis subversasque silices sine periculi metu properantes equos velut publicos signatis quod dicitur calceis agitant, familiarium agmina tamquam praedatorios globos post terga trahentes ne Sannione quidem, ut ait comicus, domi relicto. quos imitatae matronae complures opertis capitibus et basternis per latera civitatis cuncta discurrunt.</p>
{% endblock %}

But still engagement block is not displayed.

@Sten In home.twig, the block engagement block is nested inside the home block. In engagement.twig, this is not the case. Does it work if you either move it out of the home block in your parent template; or recreate the nested block structure in engagement.twig.

Hello,

I'm trying out TemplateEnginePug, and I get a blank page. I have a empty home.php and a views/home.pug. This one has a very basic paragraph. Still I get a blank page, without any error. Same with TemplateEngineJade. Can't manage to see a byte on screen no matter what.

Tested other template languages (twig, processwire, latte), and it works fine. Config debug is `true`.

Thanks!

      MediaLibrary
      Update: MediaLibrary can now be found in the official module list.
      Out of necessity, I've started to implement a simple media library module.
      The basic mechanism is that it adds a MediaLibrary template with file and image fields. Pages of this type can be added anywhere in the page tree.
      The link and image pickers in CKEditor are extended to allow quick selection of library pages from dropdowns. In the link picker this happens in the MediaLibrary tab, where you can also see a preview of the selected image. In the image picker, simply select a library from the dropdown at the top, everything else is handled by standard functionality.
      I've put the code onto github. This module is compatible with ProcessWire 3.
      Steps to usage:
      Download the module's zip from github (switch to the pw3 branche beforehand if you want to test on PW 3.x) and unpack it into site/modules Click "Modules" -> "Refresh" in the admin Click "Install" for MediaLibrary For testing, create a page with the MediaLibrary template under home (give it an expressive title like 'Global Media') and add some images and files Edit a differnt page with a CKEditor field and add a link and an image to see the MediaLibrary features in action (see the screencap for details) Optionally, go into the module settings for MediaLibrary Note: this module is far from being as elaborate as Kongondo's Media Manager (and doesn't plan to be). If you need a feature-rich solution for integrated media management, give it a look.
      Feel free to change the settings for MediaFiles and MediaImages fields, just keep the type as multiple.
      There are some not-so-pretty hacks for creating and inserting the correct markup, which could probably be changed to use standard input fields, though I'm a bit at a loss right now how to get it to work. I've also still got to take a look at error handling before I can call it fit for production. All feedback and pointers are appreciated (that's also why I post this in the development section).

      Edit 09.03.2016 / version 0.0.4: there's now also a "Media" admin page with a shortcut to quickly add a new library.

      Edit 01.05.2016:
      Version 0.0.8:
      - The module now supports nested media libraries (all descendants of eligible media libraries are also selectable in link/image picker).
      - There's a MediaLibrary::getPageMediaLibraries method you can hook after to modify the array of available libraries.
      - You can switch between (default) select dropdowns or radio boxes in the module configuration of MediaLIbrary to choose libraries.
      Edit 10.10.2018:
      Version 0.1.3:
      - Dropped compatibility for ProcessWire legacy versions by adding namespaces
      - Allow deletion of libraries from the Media overview admin page
      - Added an option to hide media libraries from the page tree (optionally also for superusers)

      This module corrects a few things that I find awkward about the "Add New Template" workflow in the PW admin. I opened a wishlist topic a while back because it would good to resolve some of these things in the core, but this module is a stopgap for now.
      Originally I was going to share these as a few standalone hooks, but decided to bundle them together in a configurable module instead.
      Add Template Enhancements
      A module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF. Adds some efficiency enhancements when adding or cloning templates via admin.

      Features
      Derive label from name when new template added: if you like to give each of your templates a label then this feature can save some time. The label can be added automatically when templates are added in admin, in admin/API, or not at all. There are options for underscore/hyphen replacement and capitalisation of the label. Edit template after add: when adding only a single template, the template is automatically opened for editing after it is added. Copy field contexts when cloning: this copies the field contexts (a.k.a. overrides such as column width, label and description) from the source template to the new template when using the "Duplicate/clone this template?" feature on the Advanced tab. Copy field contexts when duplicating fields: this copies the field contexts if you select the "Duplicate fields used by another template" option when adding a new template. Usage
      Install the Add Template Enhancements module.
      Configure the module settings according to what suits you.

      As I mentioned in this issue, I've create a new textformatter for ParsedownExtraPlugin, which adds some oomph to your markdown.
      Repo: Parsedown Extra Plugin
      Unlike the built-in textformatter for Parsedown and Parsedown Extra, this should be used when you want to use Extra with additional configuration/customisation.
      Some examples:
      ### Test {.heading} - A [external link](https://google.com/){.google} with `google` as a class that opens in a new tab if the config property is set. - [Another link](/page){target=_blank} that opens in a new tab even though it isn't external. ```html .html <p>Test</p> ``` There's some config options available to you, such as setting attributes on all/external images and links, setting table and table-cell alignment classes, adjusting footnote classes and IDs, adding <code> attributes to their parent <pre> elements, and changing the <code> class if your syntax highlighter does not use language-*.
      I was thinking about adding the ability to make links open in a new tab by appending a plus to the link syntax, but only external links should be opening in a new tab anyway. Further, this would add extra, unnecessary processing time.
      Please let me know if you bump into any problems. ☺️

      TextformatterTypographer (0.4.0 Beta)
      A ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer in wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.
      Learn more on my blog
      It's based on the PHP-Typography library found over at wp-Typography, which is more frequently updated and feature rich that its original by KINGdesk LLC.
      The module itself is fully configurable. I haven't done extensive testing, but there is nothing complex about this, and so I only envisage a typographical bug here and there, if any.
      Please do test it out and let me know what you think.
      Also note that I have indicated support for PW 2.8, but I haven't tested there as yet. This was built on PW 3.0.42/62.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.50
      Jumplinks is an enhanced version of the original ProcessRedirects by Antti Peisa.
      The Process module manages your permanent and temporary redirects (we'll call these "jumplinks" from now on, unless in reference to redirects from another module), useful for when you're migrating over to ProcessWire from another system/platform. Each jumplink supports wildcards, shortening the time needed to create them.
      Unlike similar modules for other platforms, wildcards in Jumplinks are much easier to work with, as Regular Expressions are not fully exposed. Instead, parameters wrapped in curly braces are used - these are described in the documentation.
      Under Development: 2.0, to be powered by FastRoute
      As of version 1.5.0, Jumplinks requires at least ProcessWire 2.6.1 to run.
      View on GitLab
      Download via the Modules Directory
      Read the docs
      Features
      The most prominent features include:
      Basic jumplinks (from one fixed route to another) Parameter-based wildcards with "Smart" equivalents Mapping Collections (for converting ID-based routes to their named-equivalents without the need to create multiple jumplinks) Destination Selectors (for finding and redirecting to pages containing legacy location information) Timed Activation (activate and/or deactivate jumplinks at specific times) 404-Monitor (for creating jumplinks based on 404 hits) Additionally, the following features may come in handy:
      Stale jumplink management Legacy domain support for slow migrations An importer (from CSV or ProcessRedirects) Feedback & Feature Requests
      I’d love to know what you think of this module. Please provide some feedback on the module as a whole, or even regarding smaller things that make it whole. Also, please feel free to submit feature requests and their use-cases.
      Note: Features requested so far have been added to the to-do list, and will be added to 2.0, and not the current dev/master branches.
      Open Source

      Jumplinks is an open-source project, and is free to use. In fact, Jumplinks will always be open-source, and will always remain free to use. Forever. If you would like to support the development of Jumplinks, please consider making a small donation via PayPal.
