[ABD] Template Events Locations (for extension developers)

Post by martti » Wed Dec 24, 2014 4:41 am

Development of this extension will continue here under a new name: Show phpBB Events

This is a developers tool. It is only to be installed locally and not on a live site.

Extension Name: Template Events Locations

Author: martti

Extension Description: This extension for extension developers shows all the core template event locations in the board. Also the core PHP events that get triggered are shown in order in a table at the bottom of the page. Both the template events medals and PHP events are linked to their location in the phpBB repository in Github so their context can be easily reviewed when you click on them. You can toggle between showing/hiding the events with a button in the upper left corner.

Extension Version: 1.5.1

Requirements: phpBB 3.2.x, PHP 7.x

Extension Download: https://github.com/marttiphpbb/phpbb-ex ... master.zip
The files are to be put in ext/marttiphpbb/templateevents

Github repository: https://github.com/marttiphpbb/phpbb-ext-templateevents

Languages: en, fr

Templates: all (but only tested in prosilver)

Screenshots:

With a button at the upper left corner you can toggle between showing/not showing the events:
(The template events with grey labels are in the HTML head and the black labels in the HTML body)

Image


Image


At the bottom the triggered core PHP events are shown in order and the times they were triggered:

Image


The core template and PHP events are also shown for the ACP pages:

Image

If you hold the mouse pointer on a template event label, you see the phpBB version it was introduced and the file where it resides:

Image


Clicking on the template event label or the filename of the PHP event brings you to the line in the phpBB code:

Quite a good idea - but only for a development board.

I do, however, have a couple of questions:

1. How will this interact with other extensions that may use template events?
2. As these are effectively hard coded will you be updating this extension whenever a new event is added?

1. There is no interference with other extensions. Multiple extensions can be subscribed to the same events. The location indicators of this extension will appear right before or after anything that is inserted by other extensions. (The order is not fixed by nature.)
2. For the moment being, this is hard coded. I don't think there is an other solution now. I will update whenever a new version of phpBB with new events comes out.

Edit: 2 -> luckily I got some help from Oyabun1

when trying to view the template events in the ACP while in User administration viewing a user, clicking on the show button to view template events, it refreshes the page and drops back to the username input field. any way to set the show template events to just a global on so every time you go to another page it is already turned on?

like a switch in the ACP to just turn it on or off instead of the switch in the header of the page

To my view the phpBB core is wrong here and not the extension.
This is one of the places the phpBB core uses a HTTP POST where it should be using HTTP GET.
You don't see the user represented in the url of the ACP User Administration. If you copy paste the url into another tab of your browser, you won't get the user adminstration of the certain user, but the username input field.
Clearly, phpBB should be using here a HTTP GET because no data gets processed; the ACP User Administration is simply a representation of a resource (the certain user).
About HTTP POST vs GET:
http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/the-defin ... et-vs-post

Another example where phpBB uses HTTP POST where it should be HTTP GET are these selectors at the bottom of viewforum:

any way to set the show template events to just a global on so every time you go to another page it is already turned on?
So, this is already the case (when the showing of template events is turned on, query parameter&value templateevents=1 gets passed over each time in the url).
The unexpected behaviour you encounter has to do with the fact phpBB core that doesn't link each page (a resource) to an url. As long this doesn't get fixed in core I suggest to live with it.

This looks very useful. Thank you for sharing it - the long text list in the dev guide is okay, but a picture is worth a thousand words!

Hey Martti, I noticed a text error in the overall_footer_copyright_prepend.html file...

overall_footer_page_body_after should be changed to overall_footer_copyright_prepend.

Great extension. Love the work you have put in on this development tool.

Hi.
The German [de] and Russian [ru] translations are ready.
I sent them to the extension author.
Thanks for the extension.
