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 :)

      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.

      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 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)
