TextformatterMakeLinks

This Textformatter module is just a wrapper around the method fHTML::makeLinks from flourishlib (http://flourishlib.com/api/fHTML#makeLinks)

The following description is basically just slightly modified copy from the official flourishlib documetation (http://flourishlib.com/docs/fHTML):

The Textformatter will parse through a string and create HTML links out of anything that resembles a URL or email address, as long as it is not already part of an tag.

Here is an example of it in action:

If you put this text into a textarea inputfield which uses this textformatter

Example 1: www.example.com.
Example 2: https://example.com.'>https://example.com.
Example 3: john@example.com.
Example 4: ftp://john:password@example.com.'>ftp://john:password@example.com.
Example 5: www.example.co.uk.
Example 6: john@example.co.uk.
Example 7: <a href="http://example.com">http://example.com</a>.
The output would be:
Example 1: <a href="http://www.example.com">www.example.com</a>.
Example 2: <a href="https://example.com">https://example.com</a>.
Example 3: <a href="mailto:john@example.com">john@example.com</a>.
Example 4: <a href="ftp://john:password@example.com">ftp://john:password@example.com</a>.
Example 5: <a href="http://www.example.co.uk">www.example.co.uk</a>.
Example 6: <a href="mailto:john@example.co.uk">john@example.co.uk</a>.
Example 7: <a href="http://example.com">http://example.com</a>.

Thanks for giving my module a try.

I see that it would be handy in your case, but I think it's better to keep these Textformatters separate. Not everybody wants obfuscation, and having separate Formatters is way more flexible.

Love the module, but is there any way you could fix the trailing slash(/) on urls not being recognized?

Unfortunately, I'm not very good with regex, but I still tried to solve the problem. Can you please give it a try if the result is better if you remove the \b in lines 52 and 53?

Has anyone here with more regex experience an idea what problems could arise from this change?

Thanks interrobang.  I didn't know much about regex either, but I'm learning now!

That worked with detecting urls with/without an ending slash, but then I noticed that email addresses were no longer linked.  test@something.com gets converted into a link "something.com."

I even tried removing the other \b, but it didn't make a difference.

Edit: Actually, after playing around some more... If I remove the \b in lines 52 only, everything seems to work correctly.  Urls with/without trailing slashes and email addresses are now linked correctly.  Can you test that on your end?

Do you want me to submit a pull request for this change?

So far I haven't found a fully working regex. My test case is this. You you or anybody else finds a solution a PR is more than welcome.

$test = "<h2>Fully URLs</h2>";
$test .= "http://domain.com <br>";
$test .= "http://domain.com/ <br>";
$test .= "http://domain.com/dir <br>";
$test .= "(http://domain.com/dir) <br>";
$test .= "http://domain.com/dir/ <br>";
$test .= "http://domain.com/dir/?a=1 <br>";
$test .= "<h2>www. domains</h2>";
$test .= "www.domain.com <br>";
$test .= "www.domain.com/ <br>";
$test .= "www.domain.com/dir <br>";
$test .= "www.domain.com/dir/ <br>";
$test .= "www.domain.com/dir/?a=1 <br>";
$test .= "<h2>flourishlib Examples</h2>";
$test .= "Example 1: www.example.com.<br>";
$test .= "Example 2: https://example.com.<br>";
$test .= "Example 3: john@example.com.<br>";
$test .= "Example 4: ftp://john:password@example.com.<br>";
$test .= "Example 5: www.example.co.uk.<br>";
$test .= "Example 6: john@example.co.uk.<br>";
$test .= 'Example 7: <a href="http://example.com">http://example.com</a>.';

wireModules("TextformatterMakeLinks")->format($test);
echo $test;

Hmm... Thanks for the test data.  I see the problem as well with the www. urls with a trailing slash.  I'll see if I can come up with a alternative regex that works.

I just remembered that Drupal has a URL filter built into core.  Maybe we can somehow use it's code since it's been battle tested? ...with credit of course.

https://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/modules!filter!filter.module/function/_filter_url/7.x - For Drupal 7

In the comments of the Drupal module, it interestingly states "Each type must be processed separately, as there is no one regular expression that could possibly match all of the cases in one pass."

There is also https://github.com/thephpleague/uri-parser that looks like it may help, but that would require composer to install the library?

Also, I've been testing different regex patterns with https://regex101.com.  It's the best regex tester I've found so far.

@interrobang - can you try this regex?

'~
  \b([a-z]{3,}://[a-z0-9%\$\-_.+!*;/?:@=&\'\#,]+[a-z0-9\$\-_+!*;/?:@=&\'\#,])\b\/?                           | # Fully URLs
  \b(www\.(?:[a-z0-9\-]+\.)+[a-z]{2,}(?:/[a-z0-9%\$\-_.+!*;/?:@=&\'\#,]+[a-z0-9\$\-_+!*;/?:@=&\'\#,])?)\b\/? | # www. domains
  \b([a-z0-9\\.+\'_\\-]+@(?:[a-z0-9\\-]+\.)+[a-z]{2,})\b                                                       # email addresses
~ix'

It looks like it works.  All I did was add the "\/?" to the end of the first two lines.  If it works, I'll make a pull request.

      Jumplinks for ProcessWire
      Release: 1.5.56
      Composer: rockett/jumplinks
      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.
      Enjoy! :)

      As threatened in Ryan's announcement for 3.0.139, I built a little module for sliding toggles as a replacement for checkboxes. Styling of the input is CSS3 only (with all the usual caveats about older browsers), no JS necessary, and may still be a bit "rough around the edges", so to speak, since I didn't have much time for testing on different devices or brushing things up enough so I'd feel comfortable pushing it to the module directory. But here's the link to the GitHub repo for now:
      InputfieldSlideToggle
      Fieldtype and Inputfield that implements smartphone-style toggles as replacement for checkbox inputs. The visualization is CSS-only, no additional JS necessary.
      Status
      Still very alpha, use with caution!
      Features / Field Settings
      Size
      You can render the toggles in four different sizes: small, medium, large and extra large.
      Off Color
      Currently, "unchecked" toggles can be displayed either in grey (default) or red.
      On Color
      "Checked" toggles can be rendered in one of these colors: blue (default), black, green, grey, orange or red.
      Screenshots

      Hi Guys
      I needed to add extended functionalities for the InputfieldDatetime Module (module is from processwire version 2.7.3) because of a Request of Customer.
      So I duplicated the module and placed it under /site/modules/.
      I have added 3 new Settings to the InputfieldDatetime Module.
      1. Day Restriction - Restrict different days based on weekdays selection (e.g. saturday, sunday) - WORKING

       
      2. Time Slots - Define Time slots based on custom Integer Value (max is 60 for 1 hour) - WORKING

       
      3. Time Range Rules per Weekday - Define a minTime and MaxTime per Weekday (e.g. Opening Hours of a Restaurant) - NOT WORKING PROPERLY

       
      The Problem
      Time Slots and Day Restriction working fine so far. But the Time Range Rules per Weekday doesn't work right.
      What should happen is, that when you click on a date, it should update the minTime and maxTime of the Time Select.
      But the change on the select only happens if you select a date 2 times or when you select a date 1 time and then close the datepicker and reopen it again.
      The time select doesn't get change when you select a date 1 time and don't close the picker.
      Here is the whole extended InputfieldDatetime Module.
      The Files that I have changed:
      InputfieldDatetime.module InputfieldDatetime.js jquery-ui-timepicker-addon.js (https://trentrichardson.com/examples/timepicker/) - updated it to the newest version, because minTime and maxTime Option was only available in the new version  
      Thats the Part of the JS that is not working correctly:
      if(datetimerules && datetimerules.length){ options.onSelect = function(date, inst) { var day = $(this).datetimepicker("getDate").getDay(); day = day.toString(); var mintime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-mintime'); var maxtime = $(this).attr('data-weekday'+day+'-maxtime'); console.log("weekday: "+day); console.log("minTime: "+mintime); console.log("maxTime: "+maxtime); var optionsAll = $(this).datetimepicker( "option", "all" ); optionsAll.minTime = mintime; optionsAll.maxTime = maxtime; $(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); $(this).datetimepicker(optionsAll); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); //$.datepicker._selectDate($(this).attr("id"),date); //$.datepicker._base_getDateDatepicker(); // var inst = $.datepicker._getInst($(this)); // $.datepicker._updateDatepicker(inst); /*$(this).datetimepicker('destroy'); InputfieldDatetimeDatepicker($(this), mintime, maxtime); $(this).datetimepicker('refresh'); */ // $(this).datetimepicker('option', {minTime: mintime, maxTime: maxtime}); } } Can you have a look and find out what the Problem is?

      This module tracks changes, additions, removals etc. of public (as in "not under admin") pages of your site. Like it's name says, it doesn't attempt to be a version control system or anything like that - just a log of what's happened.
      At the moment it's still a work in progress and will most likely be a victim of many ruthless this-won't-work-let's-try-that-instead cycles, but I believe I've nailed basic functionality well enough to post it here.. so, once again, I'll be happy to hear any comments you folks can provide
      https://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-changelog/
      https://github.com/teppokoivula/ProcessChangelog
      How does it work?
      Exactly like it's (sort of) predecessor, Process Changelog actually consists of two modules: Process Changelog and Process Changelog Hooks. Hooks module exists only to serve main module by hooking into various functions within Pages class, collecting data of performed operations, refining it and keeping up a log of events in it's own custom database table (process_changelog.) Visible part is managed by Process Changelog, which provides users a (relatively) pretty view of the contents of said log table.
      How do you use it?
      When installed this module adds new page called Changelog under Admin > Setup which provides you with a table view of collected data and basic filtering tools See attached screenshots to get a general idea about what that page should look like after a while.
      For detailed installation instructions etc. see README.md.

      If you are interested, you can test the current state of development:
      https://github.com/gadgetto/SnipWire
      Please note that the software is not yet intended for use in a production system (alpha version).
      If you like, you can also submit feature requests and suggestions for improvement. I also accept pull requests.
      ---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
      I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
      The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
      Here are some highlights:
      simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
      I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
      I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
      (please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
