Textpattern plugins website

Build Status

Official 2020+ plugins website of the Textpattern project. Requires Textpattern 4.8.2 or later.

Pulls supporting data from the Textpattern curated plugins list repository.

Supported web browsers

  • Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari and Opera the last two recent stable releases.
  • Internet Explorer 11.
  • Firefox ESR latest major point release.

Older versions of the above and other browsers may work, but these are the ones we verify.

Requirements

Building this repository requires:

Setup

Installing required tools

The project uses Grunt to run tasks. First make sure you have base dependencies installed: Node.js and Grunt. You can install Node using the installer, Composer using the installer, and Grunt with npm:

$ npm install -g grunt-cli

Consult the Grunt documentation for more instructions if necessary.

Installing dependencies

After you have the base dependencies taken care of, you can install the project's dependencies. Navigate to the project's directory, and run the dependency manager:

$ cd textpattern-plugins-website
$ npm install
$ composer install

npm installs Node modules for Grunt and composer installs PHP libraries.

Building

This repository hosts sources and needs to be built before it can be used. After you have installed all dependencies, you will be able to run tasks using Grunt, including building:

$ grunt @task@

Where the @task@ is either build or watch.

  • The build task builds the project.
  • The watch task will launch a task that watches for file changes; the project is then automatically built if a source file is modified.

Shortcodes

Textpattern 4.7 introduced support for user-definable <txp:output_form /> attributes (and also the short tags syntax <txp::...>), allowing for our own version of 'shortcodes' within articles (note: remember to also use notextile. when within Textile content). This site uses the following tags:

Superceded plugin flag

Plugins can be flagged as 'superseded' when there is deemed a better method to achieve the same end task. For example, newer core Textpattern tags/attributes have been developed, a more modern alternative plugin, or if Textpattern custom short-tags and shortcodes can be used instead.

The shortcode creates an alert block on the page showing an advisory listing the new method and a link to the new methods' documentation.

To create a superceded plugin flag:

<txp::superseded type="" location="" />

type is used to explain the replacement method that is available. For example, shortcodes, alternative plugin, core tags, etc. Please try to keep the naming convention consistent throughout the CMS if possible.

location is the full URL to the replacement method; be that documentation and/or examples via shortcodes, the webpage of the alternative plugin, the documentation page of the core tags, etc.

For example:

<txp::superseded type="shortcodes" location="https://example.com/example.html" />

Image

To create a HTML5 image snippet:

<txp::media_image id="" dark-option="" set-width="" set-height="" />

id accepts either a single image ID, or comma separated image IDs if you want multiple images. For blogs/articles the ideal image width is 832 pixels for the standard resolution version and 1664 pixels for the double resolution version (which is optional, but should be provided if possible).

dark-option is optional (for a single image ID), for if you need to provide an alternative image when website is in Dark Mode.

set-width and set-height are optional (for a single image ID), for if you need to provide explicit maximum dimensions (in pixels) for an image. Otherwise (when not set), images default to being fully responsive (expanding to fill their container).

For example, comma separated image IDs:

<txp::media_image id="41, 42, 50" />

For example, image with an alternative dark theme version and a set width and height in pixels:

<txp::media_image id="51" dark-option="52" set-width="400" set-height="125" />

Video

To create a HTML5 video snippet:

<txp::media_video width="" height="" mp4-url="" webm-url="" poster-url="" name="" description="" duration-seconds=""/>

poster-url, name, description and duration-seconds are optional, but should be provided if possible to provide valid Schema.org microdata. If not used, remove those attributes from your shortcode.

For example:

<txp::media_video width="640" height="480" mp4-url="/video/video1.mp4" webm-url="/video/video1.webm" poster-url="/video/video1-poster.png" name="Cat video" description="My great video of cats." duration-seconds="20" />

File

To create a file download snippet:

<txp::media_file category="" filename="" large-button="" />

category and filename are interchangeable (use one or the other, where appropriate) - if both are provided then category is used in preference and filename is ignored.

large-button is optional. If set to 1, this will render a larger style button.

For example:

<txp::media_file category="current-release-zip" large-button="1" />
