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.

I created Module with last dev version. Let me check for last stable version and i can see what is problem for oldest versions.

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

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.

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 !

      Hey folks,
      for a module (a pagebuilder based on PageTable) I need to save some settings as JSON. The values are saved for each page table item (a pw page). It's working well, but I am looking for ways to improve the structure I have. As I'm not that experienced with JSON, maybe someone more experienced can take a look and tell me if my approach is good practice. 

      My goal is to make all the items accessible by page id, without looping over them (using objects instead of arrays):
      // access from template with pw page var $jsonObject->items->{$page}->cssClass; Her is an example of my JSON structure:
      { "items": { "3252": { "id": "3252", "cssClass": "pgrid-main", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "auto", "grid-row-end": "auto", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "60px", "padding-right": "60px", "padding-top": "60px", "padding-bottom": "60px", "background-color": "rgb(255, 255, 255)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3686": { "id": "3686", "cssClass": "test_global", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "-1", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "1", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3687": { "id": "3687", "cssClass": "block_editor-3687", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "span 2", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } }, "3696": { "id": "3696", "cssClass": "block_editor-3696", "breakpoints": { "base": { "css": { "grid-column-end": "span 2", "grid-row-end": "span 1", "grid-column-start": "auto", "grid-row-start": "auto", "align-self": "auto", "z-index": "auto", "padding-left": "0px", "padding-right": "0px", "padding-top": "0px", "padding-bottom": "0px", "background-color": "rgba(0, 0, 0, 0)", "color": "rgb(0, 0, 0)" }, "size": "@media (min-width: 576px)", "name": "base" } } } }, "breakpointActive": "base", "breakpointActiveSize": "@media (min-width: 576px)" }

      Fieldtype Page Table Grid
      This is a sneak preview of a side project I've been working on for quite some time now. A lot of work and thought has gone into this, so I will most likely release this as a commercial module at some point in the near future. 

      As a designer (and developer) I get the appeal of a WYSIWYG editor. After playing around with some WYSIWYG page builder tools, I always felt something was wrong about them. So I decided to build my own PW version based on PageTable.

      Here is a small demo (using AdminThemeCanvas, but its working with other admin themes as well) :
      There is also a complete website that I built for a friend of mine using this module and some custom blocks.
      Concept
      This fieldtype shares a lot of features with PageTableExtended: it's also an extension of PageTable and renders the block templates in the backend and frontend (native PW templates and fields). You can also add your own css via module settings.
      The difference is, this fieldtype also gives you the ability to rearrange and resize elements in a visual way as well as enable inline editing for text, ckeditor and file fields. Similar (and promising) attempts have been made, but I wanted something based on native CSS grid instead of a CSS framework...so I built my own version. Most CSS frameworks are based on flexbox, which is great for layouting elements horizontally. With CSS grid, you can place elements horizontally and vertically, allowing for layouts that were not previously possible with CSS. Similar to webflow, this fieldtype uses javascript (in the backend) to let you manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them). It should still be possible to include a CSS framework if you like (just add the classes to your block markup and include the CSS via module settings).
      The CSS grid layout manipulations are saved in a single field as a JSON array and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you simply include in your main template (no inline styles). The styles are saved within the breakpoint you select and cascade down to smaller breakpoints. That means you can specify just the basic breakpoint and adjust other breakpoints if needed. The exception is the mobile breakpoint which will display everything in one column as a default (you can change the layout here too).
      The fieldtype also comes with an optional style panel to manipulate some additional CSS properties directly on the page. You can customize the panel or disable it completely from the module settings (and just use a CSS file that you include via module settings). The style panel is based on inputfields (nothing is saved to the database). This means that you just have to install the module and all fields are available to all blocks automatically (this can be customized). It also has the benefit that your installation is not flooded with fields; this module only installs one field.
      Don't want to give your customer all that power? Design features can be disabled for certain roles. The grid editor role can just edit the content and use the inline editing feature to edit content quickly. You can then also grant access individually to the style panel, resize or drag functionality.
      Features
      Blocks are just pages Blocks are defined by native PW templates and fields Manipulate CSS grid in a visual way to design fully responsive websites (or parts of them) Design features can be disabled for certain roles Inline editing of text, ckeditor and file fields The layout is 100% CSS grid (very small css file size) Simply drag and resize to manipulate grid items directly inside the backend Manipulate grid columns and rows directly on the page (use any number of columns you want) All style manipulations are saved as JSON and used to generate a dynamic stylesheet that you just include in your main template (no inline styles) Nested groups/grids (child pages of nested blocks are created under group parent) Global blocks work with page reference field (changes on one page, changes all blocks on all pages) Manual and auto placement of grid items Define custom icons for your blocks via native template settings (template -> advanced -> icon) Option to load lazysizes in the backend to enable lazy loading of assets with class lazyload Works with all default and ui-kit based admin themes If you have any questions or feedback, let me know.

      I built this module because I needed a versatile solution to replace tags and simple if-blocks in some E-Mails and PDF documents.
      If you only need to replace static tags (no if-conditions), then you can use default PW api and need no module:
      $str = "My favourite color is {color}."; $texttools = $sanitizer->getTextTools(); echo $texttools->populatePlaceholders($str, ['color' => 'red']); // output: My favourite color is red. Usage:
      See the two example Files in the folder /replacements

       
      Methods:
      replacementsTable()
      Renders an overview of all available replacements (see the example in the Module's config file:
       
      Create new Replacements:
      Simply copy the sample file and adopt to your needs.

      DEPRECATED
      I'm using this module in several projects, but it will likely not see any updates in the future. I'm not happy with it and I'm looking for ways to develop better solutions. RockTabulator was my first try, but I'm also not 100% happy with that. The tabulator library is great, but my module implementation is not. I hope to get a good solution soon, but it will be a lot of work...
      ---
      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support (please contact me via PM).
       
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

      Hi there. I wrote a custom module for one of my projects. In fact I maybe want to use my module in other projects too. In order to be variable and customizable  I need to implement some custom hooks into my module. So I can afterwards hook into the my functions in order to modify them to match the needs of the new project.
      I tried simply defining functions with the '__' prefix. But that did not work. I'm imagining something like the following:
      <?php class MyClass { public function ___someFunction() { // Do something } } // ready.php $this->addHookBefore('MyClass::someFunction', function($event) { // some customization }); Is there a way to accomplish that?
