InputfieldChosenSelect

InputfieldChosenSelect

This topic (https://processwire.com/talk/topic/71-categorizingtagging-content/) showed the need for a Inputfield that would provide a real tagging UI to be useable with FieldtypePage. It uses the chosen library, which can be found here http://harvesthq.github.io/chosen/. It's meant for MultiPageFields and works kinda like asmSelect, but with a different skin.

Features:

  • Inline adding of new tags, which will then generate the corresponding pages.
  • Sortable tags.

Usage

  • Install the Module
  • Edit your pagefield and choose InputfieldChosenSelect as inputfield.
  • Use Enter or Tab to create new Pages with the currently typed name.
  • Enter will fill in the tab currently selected in the dropdown.

Is there a way to make readme-images, which come from github, work in the module directory?

Like this: <img src='https://github.com/LostKobrakai/InputfieldChosenSelect/raw/master/screen.png' /> in your README

Since this will be the modules support forum, please add instructions here on how to install and use it. Also add in your README, thanks.

I've added usage instructions, but the potential stumbling block of first adding the module in the settings of InputfieldPage is now included in the modules installation. So there's really not much left.

@LostKobrakai - just playing with this now and I like it - thanks, but there is a bug :)

In InputfieldChosenSelect.js you have:

$(".InputfieldPageTags select[multiple=multiple]").each(function() {

I am not actually sure how that would ever work since that approach would need the name of the field, eg if your field name is: tags

$(".Inputfield_tags select[multiple=multiple]").each(function() {

but this also works and won't be dependent on the field's name:

$(".InputfieldChosenSelect select[multiple=multiple]").each(function() {

Features on the "maybe" list:

  • Inline adding of new pages.

This is in-built in ProcessWire and it already works with your Inputfield. I have tested and it works fine unless I am missing something?

A request: Do you know if it is possible to sort the tags by drag and drop like in asmSelect? In your case this would have to be horizontal, of course..

@adrian

Shoot, renamed the module locally from InputfieldPageTags to InputfieldChosenSelect, that's why it was still there :) Fixed it.

@kongondo

With inline I mean really in the field where the tags are, so that new pages are also shown in a tag ui if you hit tab or enter. Currently you can only use the autocomplete in this field and add pages below.

I see, but adding pages below has the advantage of being able to add multiple pages in one swoop. I wouldn't want to reinvent the wheel myself, but of course, it's your decision :-)

I edited my post above: Did you see my request?

No offense kongondo, but I would actually really like to see the inline way of adding new tags/pages - Since they are already typing, I think that is what many users would expect to be able to do, rather than needing an additional field. 

Nico's https://github.com/NicoKnoll/TextboxList works like this, but of course it would be great to have this in this module so everything is connected to the page field.

I wouldn't reinvent much, I would just add the ability to add new tags and in the background, as this works kinda like asmSelect, it would just add items to a select input. To the request of sorting these. It's not possible out of the box, as the library is meant to be a progressive enhancement for selectboxes, where you're normally not able to sort stuff. I'll see if this would be addable with a little jQueryUI's sortable.

Yeah I found a few github repos with that feature added, too. Updated all those snippets to work with the new version of chosen and here we go. Inline adding and sorting is now working.

Love the enhancements, but I am getting something weird - if I only enter 2 characters and then hit enter, it creates a new tag for to match those 2 characters, and then randomly adds a second tag to the list.

Then hit enter and I get this:

Yeah the code to to distinguish between "still options available" and "definitely a new page" is not working perfectly. For now I've updated it to just use TAB to create a new one and ENTER for choosing from the dropdown.

Nice stuff.

A question though. If i remember correctly Chosen loads the entire dataset into the DOM. I'm wondering if this could potentially lead to performance issues when working with a lot (thousands) of pages to choose from. Solutions like select2 or selectize.js (both jQuery based) allow for partial loading of remote datasets in some form. Maybe you chose Chosen for a good reason but i was just wondering.

If i remember correctly Chosen loads the entire dataset into the DOM. 

I don't know about all the other inputfields, but chosen is based on the exact multi select inputfield, which asmSelect is built on. I don't know about the performance of the library itself, but the base DOM containes all elements for both inputfields.

Nice module. I'll try it soon :)

I build an inline edit module with Tokeninput with free tagging and ajax data source, but I build it for frontend use and not a Inputfield.

Btw, seems the inline creation of new tags changes the tag's title case to lower case (must be the js). Since this are used to create page titles, is it possible to change this behaviour? i.e. If I enter the tag 'Tech', I expect that and not 'tech'.

Yeah, was to eager to do the comparison of available tags and new tags in lowercase. Should have been only in the if statement and not for the whole value. I've uploaded a fixed version, so it should work now.

Just a quick request - can you make it possible to override these:

    AbstractChosen.default_multiple_text = "Select/Enter tags";
    AbstractChosen.default_single_text = "Select an Option";
    AbstractChosen.default_no_result_text = "No results match";

Thanks again for this - it's coming in very handy, although client feedback unfortunately is saying that the "Tab" to create a new tag is confusing - any chance you can revisit making Enter work in all situations? Sorry for sounding demanding :)

From the api you can just use these as with all options available: https://harvesthq.github.io/chosen/options.html.

$inputfield->setChosenOption('no_results_text', "Text");
$inputfield->setChosenOption('placeholder_text_multiple', "Text");
$inputfield->setChosenOption('placeholder_text_single', "Text");

I don't know if that's enough for you to hook ::render and inject these. 

Regarding the Tab / Enter situation. I'm quite good in js by now, but the sourcecode of chosen is still somewhat complex. The last time I searched I didn't find a way to check if there are still elements left in the dropdown or not. I'll take another look into it tomorrow.

I've updated the module to give users the ability add pages with Enter as well. Let me know if there are any problems. 

Edit: I've also added some more fitting styles for AdminThemeReno.

Awesome - so much better with Enter working to add tags - thank you!

As for the no results/placeholder text - I might just go with some jquery.

Thanks again for a fantastic job on this - it really is the best solution for tags fields!

Just had one more thought for you - how hard do you think it would be to also offer this as an inputfield for Ryan's new Options fieldtype, in addition to the Pages fieldtype that is currently uses. Thought it might be nice because with tags it is often unlikely that you actually need these to be accessible via a URL, hence no real need for having them as pages now that we have this new fieldtype. 

Just thinking out loud if you are looking for something to do :)

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      I've updated the module to 0.0.3. I removed the instructions from this forum, so I don't have to maintain it on multiple places. Just checkout the readme on github 🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github.

      Hej,
      A module which helps including Photoswipe and brings some modules for rendering gallery markup. Feedback highly appreciated
      (Also pull requests are appreciated 😉 - have a new Job now and don't work a lot with ProcessWire anymore, yet, feel free to contact me here or on GitHub, Im'm still "online"!)

      Modules directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/markup-processwire-photoswipe
      .zip download: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe/archive/master.zip
      You can add a photoswipe enabled thumbnail gallery / lightbox to your site like this. Just pass an image field to the renderGallery method:
      <?php $pwpswp = $modules->get('Pwpswp'); echo $pwpswp->renderGallery($page->nicePictures); Options are provided like so:
      <?php $galleryOptions = [ 'imageResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 70, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'loresResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 20, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'pswpOptions' => (object) [ 'shareEl' => false, 'indexIndicatorSep' => ' von ', 'closeOnScroll' => false ] ]; echo $pswp->renderGallery($page->images, $galleryOptions); More info about all that is in the readme: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe
      What do you think? Any ideas, bugs, critique, requests?
      cheers

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      OAuth2Login for ProcessWire
      A Module which give you ability to login an existing user using your favorite thrid-party OAuth2 provider (i.e. Facebook, GitHub, Google, LinkedIn, etc.)..
      You can login from the backend to the backend directly or render a form on the frontend and redirect the user to a choosen page.
      Built on top of ThePhpLeague OAuth2-Client lib.
      Registration is not handled by this module but planned.
       
      Howto Install
      Install the module following this procedure:
       - http://modules.processwire.com/modules/oauth2-login/
       - https://github.com/flydev-fr/OAuth2Login
      Next step, in order to use a provider, you need to use Composer to install each provider
      ie: to install Google, open a terminal, go to your root directory of pw and type the following command-line: composer require league/oauth2-google
      Tested providers/packages :
          Google :  league/oauth2-google     Facebook: league/oauth2-facebook     Github: league/oauth2-github     LinkedIn: league/oauth2-linkedin
      More third-party providers are available there. You should be able to add a provider by simply adding it to the JSON config file.

      Howto Use It
      First (and for testing purpose), you should create a new user in ProcessWire that reflect your real OAuth2 account information. The important informations are, Last Name, First Name and Email. The module will compare existing users by firstname, lastname and email; If the user match the informations, then he is logged in.
      ie, if my Google fullname is John Wick, then in ProcessWire, I create a new user  Wick-John  with email  johnwick@mydomain.com
      Next step, go to your favorite provider and create an app in order to get the ClientId and ClientSecret keys. Ask on the forum if you have difficulties getting there.
      Once you got the keys for a provider, just paste it into the module settings and save it. One or more button should appear bellow the standard login form.
      The final step is to make your JSON configuration file.
      In this sample, the JSON config include all tested providers, you can of course edit it to suit your needs :
      { "providers": { "google": { "className": "Google", "packageName": "league/oauth2-google", "helpUrl": "https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials" }, "facebook": { "className": "Facebook", "packageName": "league/oauth2-facebook", "helpUrl": "https://developers.facebook.com/apps/", "options": { "graphApiVersion": "v2.10", "scope": "email" } }, "github": { "className": "Github", "packageName": "league/oauth2-github", "helpUrl": "https://github.com/settings/developers", "options": { "scope": "user:email" } }, "linkedin": { "className": "LinkedIn", "packageName": "league/oauth2-linkedin", "helpUrl": "https://www.linkedin.com/secure/developer" } } }  
      Backend Usage
      In ready.php, call the module :
      if($page->template == 'admin') { $oauth2mod = $modules->get('Oauth2Login'); if($oauth2mod) $oauth2mod->hookBackend(); }  
      Frontend Usage
      Small note: At this moment the render method is pretty simple. It output a InputfieldForm with InputfieldSubmit(s) into wrapped in a ul:li tag. Feedbacks and ideas welcome!
      For the following example, I created a page login and a template login which contain the following code :
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; if(!$user->isLoggedin()) { $options = array( 'buttonClass' => 'my_button_class', 'buttonValue' => 'Login with {provider}', // {{provider}} keyword 'prependMarkup' => '<div class="wrapper">', 'appendMarkup' => '</div>' ); $redirectUri = str_lreplace('//', '/', $config->urls->httpRoot . $page->url); $content = $modules->get('Oauth2Login')->config( array( 'redirect_uri' => $redirectUri, 'success_uri' => $page->url ) )->render($options); }
      The custom function lstr_replace() :
      /* * replace the last occurence of $search by $replace in $subject */ function str_lreplace($search, $replace, $subject) { return preg_replace('~(.*)' . preg_quote($search, '~') . '~', '$1' . $replace, $subject, 1); }

      Version 1.1.0 is now released. It's been submitted to the module directory so should appear there soon. In the meantime, it's available on GitHub: https://github.com/gRegorLove/ProcessWire-Webmention. Please refer to the updated README there and let me know if you have any questions!
      ------------
      Original post:
       
      This is now out of date. I recommend reading the official README.
       
      I've been working on this one for a while. It's not 100%, but it is to the point I'm using it on my own site, so it's time for me to release it in beta. Once I finish up some of the features described below, I will submit it to the modules directory as a stable plugin.
      For now, you can install from Github. It works on PW2.5. I haven't tested on PW2.6, but it should work there.
      Feedback and questions are welcome. I'm in the IRC channel #processwire as well as #indiewebcamp if you have any questions about this module, webmention, or microformats.
      Thanks to Ryan for the Comments Fieldtype which helped me a lot in the handling of webmentions in the admin area.
      ProcessWire Webmention Module
      Webmention is a simple way to automatically notify any URL when you link to it on your site. From the receiver's perspective, it is a way to request notification when other sites link to it.
      Version 1.0.0 is a stable beta that covers webmention sending, receiving, parsing, and display. An easy admin interface for received webmentions is under development, as well as support for the Webmention Vouch extension.
      Features
      * Webmention endpoint discovery
      * Automatically send webmentions asynchronously * Automatically receive webmentions * Process webmentions to extract microformats   Requirements * php-mf2 and php-mf2-cleaner libraries; bundled with this package and may optionally be updated using Composer. * This module hooks into the LazyCron module.   Installation Github: https://github.com/gRegorLove/ProcessWire-Webmention

      Installing the core module named "Webmention" will automatically install the Fieldtype and Inputfield modules included in this package.   This module will attempt to add a template and page named "Webmention Endpoint" if the template does not exist already. The default location of this endpoint is http://example.com/webmention-endpoint   After installing the module, create a new field of type "Webmentions" and add it to the template(s) you want to be able to support webmentions. Sending Webmentions
      When creating or editing a page that has the Webmentions field, a checkbox "Send Webmentions" will appear at the bottom. Check this box and any URLs linked in the page body will be queued up for sending webmentions. Note: you should only check the "Send Webmentions" box if the page status is "published."   Receiving Webmentions This module enables receiving webmentions on any pages that have have "Webmentions" field, by adding the webmention endpoint as an HTTP Link header. If you would like to specify a custom webmention endpoint URL, you can do so in the admin area, Modules > Webmention.   Processing Webmentions (beta) Currently no webmentions are automatically processed. You will need to browse to the page in the backend, click "Edit," and scroll to the Webmentions field. There is a dropdown for "Visibility" and "Action" beside each webmention. Select "Process" to parse the webmention for microformats.   A better interface for viewing/processing all received webmentions in one place is under development.   Displaying Webmentions (beta) Within your template file, you can use `$page->Webmentions->render()` [where "Webmentions" is the name you used creating the field] to display a list of approved webmentions. As with the Comments Fieldtype, you can also generate your own output.   The display functionality is also under development.   Logs This module writes two logs: webmentions-sent and webmentions-received.   Vouch The Vouch anti-spam extension is still under development.   IndieWeb The IndieWeb movement is about owning your data. It encourages you to create and publish on your own site and optionally syndicate to third-party sites. Webmention is one of the core building blocks of this movement.   Learn more and get involved by visiting http://indiewebcamp.com.   Further Reading * http://indiewebcamp.com/webmention * http://indiewebcamp.com/comments-presentation * http://indiewebcamp.com/reply
