131 - Create a Joomla! v 1.5 Plugin for Odeo

Postby annerajb » Sat Dec 08, 2007 9:38 pm

creating thread per contest quideline my task create a Joomla! 1.5 plugin that will embed odeo player when the appropiate tags used.
there is no much description :S right now i am working on the regex but it is not liking me :( this is what i have in mind right now.
a parameter to set the default player style
2 type of tags
{odeo http://odeo.com/audio/1632351/view } << this one will use the default parameter
{odeo small-black http://odeo.com/audio/1632351/view} << this one will override the default parameter

Loadposition uses this:

Code: Select all

    // expression to search for
    $regex = '/{loadposition\s*.*?}/i';


Would this work?

Code: Select all

    // expression to search for
    $regex = '/{odeo\s*.*?}/i';


Thanks for taking this task!
Amy :)

have a dilemma here.
problem:
the ode embed players(only the medium and small one) needs the file path of the mp3 this varies by song
solutions:
use curl and with a regex to parse the song url and get the mp3 location and allow the small and medium player to be use.
or only provide the large player without small and medium player.

thats the only thing i can thing of other thing will be getting the source code of the word press extension see how they did it but the blog and the file give a 404 error :(
if somebody have any idea please.

thanks Amy but i got one working.

Sorry we left you alone to talk to yourself!  :P

But, it sounds like you figured it out. Looking forward to listening to some tunes with your plugin!

ok got a version ready :D.
somethings i know:
the code needs comment been the whole day fixing joomla bugs at pbf and working with the regex so excuse me.
i will have comments in next version :)
need to localize it not sure how to do that one i know its a ini file but not sure about what line to add to the xml file
Note: the regex got me the whole morning i know the syntax looks ugly but heres how to get it on your site

create a article with the following tags
{odeo http://odeo.com/audio/1632351/view|} << this one uses the plugin parameter to set the layout of the plugin and size
{odeo small-grey|http://odeo.com/audio/1632351/view} << this one uses the size and color specified
Note: the server needs to have curl if its going to use the small size or medium site if not the player wont play the song

sizes avaible:
small
medium
large

colors avaible:
black
grey

Sorry about that delay.  :P We are swamped, as you well know, with over 100 contestants and the bug smash, etc. Thank YOU for your contributions to the bug smash. You have already made a big and positive difference for our community. It is recognized and appreciated!

For Internationalization

Code it so it does not require the | at the end. That's tooo cryptic.
{odeo http://odeo.com/audio/1632351/view}

I'd override the default player second. Honestly, most of your users won't do that. It will be hard enough to remember the brackets, odeo and a URL.

This doesn't work:

Code: Select all

{odeo small-grey|http://odeo.com/audio/1632351/view}


I'll try to watch closely for your next update.

Thanks,
Amy :)

Let the end user select the default player in the plugin manager.

Use the regex to find the occurrences of the odeo plugin. (Just like the loadmodule plugin, except loadposition changed to odeo.)

Code: Select all

$regex = '/{odeo\s*.*?}/i';


You can do a string search to see if | exists. If it does - everything previous to | is your URL; everything after is your player.

Does that help?

Amy :)

I don't have any 1's at the end of my file, so,  I'm not certain what that is. (I don't even have a en-GB.com_plugins.ini file, either.)

Here's a post on Internationalization you might find helpful.

Glad you have things working; I *hate* system problems.  :P

thanks Amy Ian help me out with the localization problem :D i had in the wrong path the translation. i created a Joomla forge project for this  going to upload there. as always input is appreciated next is to improve on what you guys suggest and create another translation language :D
btw: found a small bug on my rc3 installation when you finish installing it didnt localized the description of the plugin so if somebody can take a look at it and tell me if it still a issue.
updated the tags you no loger need the | at the end just at the middle when you are specifying size and color

Postby AmyStephen » Tue Dec 18, 2007 3:52 pm

Need to pull all of your CSS out into a separate file, then include it as a separate stylesheet (you'll have to have a different style per player, it appears).

style="font-size: 9px; padding-left: 35px; color: #6a99fe; letter-spacing: -1px; text-decoration: none"


Example of loading a stylesheet:
// Load Accordion CSS
$document->addStyleSheet( JURI::base() . 'plugins/content/mootoolsaccordion.css', 'text/css', null, array( ' id' => 'StyleSheet' ) );


Other than the style tags, this seems to work very good. I tested a number of default options and overrides.

I couldn't ever get this one to play {odeo medium-grey|http://odeo.com/audio/1632351/view} but, it might have been my machine. Could you try that - and on the next version, I'll try, again, too.

Looking good!
Amy :)

well as that is the medium sized player it has to use curl so maybe the odeo site was down and the plugin coudnt get the mp3 path or other problem on their side because i could listen to that one fine its my favorite song :D but i cant test it on my linux webserver because i am preparing it for rc4 and idk how to get curl working on windows. going to take a look at the style sheet. thanks amy let me know if it dosnt work.

got the next version done :D added a css file and referenced the style using css classes also tested the song you told me and it works fine probably a problem with your curl extension or that odeo website was having some problems.

Are you still having trouble? Sometimes the Forge does have problems, but if you try later everything works.

Also, upload it to your Google Task so we can close it - and then, if you want, you could choose another.

Let me know if you are still having trouble.

Thanks again!
Amy :)
