FieldtypeFontIconPicker

This field-type allow to you easily pick icons from input-field. This module using jQuery fontIconPicker as icon selector. You can see supported icon libraries below. If you need to use custom fonts you can check below example.

Supported Icon Libraries

Cahangelog


NOTE: Module store data without prefix, you need to add "prefix" when you want to show your icon on front-end, because some of front-end frameworks using font-awesome with different "prefix".


Module will search site/modules/**/configs/IconPicker.*.php and site/templates/IconPicker.*.php paths for FieldtypeFontIconPicker config files.

All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.


Example config file : create your own icon set.

File location is site/configs/IconPicker.example.php

<?php

namespace ProcessWire;

/**
 * IconPicker : Custom Icons
 */
return [
    "name" => "my-custom-icons",
    "title" => "My Custom Icon Set",
    "version" => "1.0.0",
    "styles" => array(
        wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist/css/my-custom-icons.css"
    ),
    "scripts" => array(
        wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist/js/my-custom-icons.js"
    ),
    "categorized" => true,
    "attributes" => array(),
    "icons" => array(
        "brand-icons" => array(
            "title" => "Brand Icons",
            "icons" => array(
                "google", "facebook", "twitter", "instagram"
            )
        ),
        "flag-icons" => array(
            "title" => "Flag Icons",
            "icons" => array(
                "tr", "gb", "us", "it", "de", "nl", "fr"
            )
        )
    )
];

Example config file : use existing and extend it.

File location is site/configs/IconPicker.altivebir.php

<?php

namespace ProcessWire;

/**
 * IconPicker : Existing & Extend
 */

$resource = include wire("config")->paths->siteModules . "FieldtypeFontIconPicker/configs/IconPicker.uikit.php";

$url = wire("config")->urls->templates . "dist";

$resource["scripts"] = array_merge($resource["scripts"], ["{$url}/js/Altivebir.Icon.min.js"]);

$resource["icons"]["flag-icons"] = [
    "title" => "Flag Icons",
    "icons" => array("tr", "en", "fr", "us", "it", "de")
];

$resource["icons"]["brand-icons"]["icons"] = array_merge($resource["icons"]["brand-icons"]["icons"], array(
    "altivebir"
));

return $resource;

After you add your custom config file, you will see your config file on library select box. Library Title (Location Folder Name).

Library Select

If your library categorized and if you have categorized icons set like uikit and fontawesome libraries, you will have category limitation options per icon field or leave it empty for allow all categories (default).

Library Select


Example : output

if ($icon = $page->get("iconField")) {
    echo "<i class='prefix-{$icon}' />";
}

MarkupFontIconPicker Usage

// MarkupFontIconPicker::render(YourIconField=string, Options=array)
echo MarkupFontIconPicker::render($page->YourIconField, [
        'prefix' => 'uk-icon-', // Icon class prefix, if you have different prefix, default is : "fa fa-"
        'tag' => 'span', // Icon tag default is : "i"
        'class' => 'fa-lg', // If you have extra cutom classes, for example : icons sizes, Array or Sting value
        'style' => 'your custom styles if you have' // Array or String Value
    ]);

Great work - just playing with it now and it's really slick - thanks for the contribution!

One thing I noticed - not a big deal, but when you search by text, with "From all categories" selected, it duplicates the matching icons.

Also, out of interest, did you see this: http://processwire.com/blog/posts/processwire-core-updates-2.5.15/#new-icon-selection-module-in-the-core

It's an Inputfield, but not a Fieldtype, so it can't be used in templates as is, but I wonder how these two modules could be consolidated, or maybe they should remain completely separate - just thinking out loud - I have no idea whether Ryan is planning a matching fieldtype for his module.

Thanks for your feedback !

I think, duplicate problem is not actually a problem. Why ? : I took all icons from font-awesome website by categorized and 1 icon may in more than 1 category.

I see @Ryan module, i am trying to use always dev version of processwire and i can follow updates, new things better, but you can't use it on page as a field. @Ryan solution is good for templates and field icons select.

If you think from customer side : Simple example, think you have links page for social network website. You need an icon for each link page and you can easily select icon from select list. you don't need to search icon class inside font-awesome website or inside a icon class guide. Just select it from list. Also its possible to limit icons from input setting tab by category.

Yes, I submit it. Waiting for approve.

Also if you can, can you correct the url of my dev profile

False  -> /alt-ve-bir-bilisim-teknolojileri/ (Loosing small "ı")  ???

True   -> /alti-ve-bir-bilisim-teknolojileri/ (Turkish characters ). ı -> i

note: I added logo also again. When you make post on dev form profile, if validation is not ok fields coming as blank field.

Having a small z-index problem

attachicon.gifScreen Shot 2015-02-08 at 5.19.31 PM.png

Thanks for your feedback!

Z-index problem causing from content section ("<div id='content' class='content'>").

Icon selector z-index value is "10000" and not effecting outside of "content" section, if you add z-index value = 2, to "<div id='content' class='content'>" element its looking ok.

Need a hack for ("<div id='content' class='content'>") section by jquery or core team can add a z-index value for this section. If core team can do it, i don't need a hack for z-index. If they can't i can add a little hack for this problem. Will wait for core team answer.

But PW has the "<div id='content' class='content'>" with z-index: 0, jquery is fine. I don't see a reason why PW needs a z-index: 0 there at all as it will result all absolute containers inside #content underlap #footer cause #footer has no z-index.

Z-index values looking ok, but how copyright informations coming up?

When i check page render result with firebug, footer section looking ok, .container element inside footer section coming up of absolute element.

My solution is hack #content element or #footer .container element by little jquery code. Add a z-index value when document ready to #content "z-index: 2;" or #footer .container "z-index: -1;". Problem solve with this method.


You can change InputfieldFontIconPicker.module line 94 with this code, I will update repo also :
 
$output .= "\n<script>
		\n\tjQuery(document).ready(function($) {
		\n\t\t$('#{$options['id']}').fontIconPicker({
		\n\t\t\tsource: {$options['icons']},
		\n\t\t\t{$settings}
		\n\t\t});
		\n\t\tif($('#content').length) {
		\n\t\t\t$('#content').css('z-index', 2);
		\n\t\t}
		\n\t});
		\n</script>";

Ugly things! :)

PW should remove the z-index:0 from #content. No need to add it and if there's a reason it can be solved differently by adding z-index: 0 to footer too, but then why? PW has that wrong not your module or the plugins so PW needs to sort that out cause it's a ”bug".

It's like "adding !important to all elements that need overriding specification problems in you CSS".


Z-index values looking ok, but how copyright informations coming up?

#header (stacking order 1)

#content (stacking order 1)

#footer (stacking order 1)

now a "z-index: 0" to #content will make it

#header (stacking order 1)

#content (stacking order 0)

#footer (stacking order 1)

So content is "under" footer now.

ok, this issue comes from the array notation!

$array = array($foo, $bar); // is ok

$array = [$foo, $bar]; // only php version 5.4+

had this issue today with a different module so i thought it was not specific to this module and did some research...

For compatibility, i will change [$foo, $bar] to array($foo, $bar).

- Edit : Done. You can update module.

I don't know what I am doing wrong but I can't get this module to work.

I tried it on a fresh install of processwire 2.5.3

I just get as the image shows below. No way to pick an icon.

Edit: Problem solved can you confirm after update to v0.0.5

On Install i get :

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /somepath/site/modules/FieldtypeFontIconPicker/InputfieldFontIconPicker.module on line 22

I guess this is because that server uses php 5.4.   that does not support the new [] Syntax.

The funnie thing about that is that it should support it !

Nice module! Love the good work ( Ellerine saglik ukyo ;-) )

I would like to know if it's possible to include the icon package of foundation http://zurb.com/playground/foundation-icon-fonts-3

regards,

Gerald

Yes its possible, you can configure module as your needs

- Corredted with last commit, you can download 0.0.6 version

Hi! Awesome Module (pun intended) ;)

This would turn out very usefull for my next project, However I get some strange behaviour when leaving an edit page without changing anything on the icon. It gives me a confirm box saying there is unsaved content (see attachment). Does anybody have the same behaviour or knows what I do wrong here? 

Thanks for any suggestion. 

Sascha

Great extension! Very useful for a project of mine, thank you!

I have the same problem as saschapi. I save my page. Next I want to leave, I get a browser message (firefox) telling me that I have unsaved data.

Google translation from German:

"This page asks you to confirm that you want to leave the page - data you have entered will not be saved under certain circumstances."

Sorry i am to busy with work and i know the issue. I think this issue appear, because fonticonpicker js library changing the processwire field attributes. I will do one more hidden field for fonticonpicker js attributes and after done i will update processwire field. Started to work on it.

Thanks for interest !

      Cacheable Placeholders
      This module allows you to have pieces of dynamic content inside cached output. This aims to solve the common problem of having a mostly cacheable site, but with pieces of dynamic output here and there.  Consider this simple example, where you want to output a custom greeting to the current user:
      <h1>Good morning, <?= ucfirst($user->name) ?></h1> This snippet means you can't use the template cache (at least for logged-in users), because each user has a different name. Even if 99% of your output is static, you can only cache the pieces that you know won't include this personal greeting. A more common example would be CSRF tokens for HTML forms - those need to be unique by definition, so you can't cache the form wholesale.
      This module solves this problem by introducing cacheable placeholders - small placeholder tokens that get replaced during every request. The replacement is done inside a Page::render hook so it runs during every request, even if the response is served from the template cache. So you can use something like this:
      <h1>Good morning, {{{greeting}}}</h1> Replacement tokens are defined with a callback function that produces the appropriate output and added to the module through a simple hook:
      // site/ready.php wire()->addHookAfter('CachePlaceholders::getTokens', function (HookEvent $e) { $tokens = $e->return; $tokens['greeting'] = [ 'callback' => function (array $tokenData) { return ucfirst(wire('user')->name); } ]; $e->return = $tokens; }); Tokens can also include parameters that are parsed and passed to the callback function. There are more fully annotated examples and step-by-step instructions in the README on Github!
      Features
      A simple and fast token parser that calls the appropriate callback and runs automatically. Tokens may include multiple named or positional parameters, as well as multi-value parameters. A manual mode that allows you to replace tokens in custom pieces of cached content (useful if you're using the $cache API). Some built-in tokens for common use-cases: CSRF-Tokens, replacing values from superglobals and producing random hexadecimal strings. The token format is completely customizable, all delimiters can be changed to avoid collisions with existing tag parsers or template languages. Links

      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:
      Since 0.0.4, instructions and changelog can be found in the README only. You can find it here  🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github, thanks!

      Sorry for the convoluted title. I have a problem with Process modules that define a custom page using the page key through getModuleInfo (as demonstrated in this excellent tutorial by @bernhard). Those pages are created automatically when the module is installed. The problem is that the title of the page only gets set in the current language. That's not a problem if the current language (language of the superuser who is installing the module) is the default language; if it isn't, the Process page is missing a title in the default language. This has the very awkward effect that a user using the backend in the default language (or any other language) will see an empty entry in the setup menu:

      This screenshot comes from my Cache Control module which includes a Process page. Now I realize the description sounds obscure, but for us it's a common setup: We a multiple bilingual sites where the default language is German and the second language is English. While the clients use the CMS in German, as a developer I prefer the English interface, so whenever I install a Process module I get this problem.
      As a module author, is there a way to handle this situation? I guess it would be possible to use post-installation hooks or create the pages manually, but I very much prefer the declarative approach. The page title is already translatable (through the __ function), but of course at the time of installation there is no translation, and as far as I'm aware it's not possible to ship translations with a module so they are used automatically. Could this situation be handled better in the core? I would prefer if the module installation process would always set the title of the Process page in the default language, instead of the language of the current user.
