How to install or uninstall modules
CAUTION: This module is not compatible with repeater fields or ProFields. See BUGS.
To install this module manually, simply put it into the site/modules directory of your ProcessWire installation, so that directory should look like this:
site/modules/ AutoExportTemplatesAndFields/ AutoExportTemplatesAndFields.module cli/ import.php ...
After installing the module, all changes to fields and templates are automatically exported after the respective request to the directory specified via the module's persistDirectory setting.
In order to facilitate executing the import as part of an automated process, it
has been implemented as a command line application and can be called as
follows (assuming the php executable can be called as
php and the working
directory is the root of the ProcessWire installation):
php site\modules\AutoExportTemplatesAndFields\cli\import.php --import
The import automatically creates a database backup which can be restored using:
php site\modules\AutoExportTemplatesAndFields\cli\import.php --restore <path>
- (#1) This module is not compatible with repeater fields or ProFields. See this forum thread:
The BreakRepeaterFields module is included in the repository as a minimal showcase of what is breaking the repeater fields.
