I’m currently working on a implementation of the jquery.cropper as a Custom Panel Field.
The idea is that you select images from a Dropdown, this is then loaded into the cropper. You then click a “Crop Now”-Button that sends the File to another .php File which then crops the image using Imagick.
My problem at this point is that it seems like I’m not able to put the file (thats called via ajax) into my site/fields/cropper/ Folder that I created (because of the htaccess?) - if the file is located on the root level, it works.
The Readme is wrong at the current state but it’s how I want it to be once everything works as expected.
What you’ll have to do to make it work is pull all files into site/fields/cropper/ except for the ajax_cropper.php which has to go into the your project root folder.
Yes, still working for me. So you see the Cropping Area, you can choose the area that should be cropped? That would mean you have the submodule and everything on the frontend works as expected.
If that is not the case make sure that the submodule is there (https://github.com/fengyuanchen/cropper). So in your site/fields/cropper-Folder should be another cropper-Folder which inherits the files of the submodule (the jQuery image cropping plugin).
Like @iancox I also managed to get the frontend working, used the cropper tool and saved but couldn’t produce a cropped image to my knowledge. The image that the text file points to is still the original image. Perhaps I am missing something?
You select the Image, then you select the part of the image you want to crop, then you press “Crop image” - then the original image will be overwritten. You can use it as any other image in kirby (as it is just that, a totally normal image - just cropped).
I was trying to install it, but it doesn’t work for me.
I followed the instructions and it seems that all is in it’s place.
But i don’t see any “Crop Image” button. A field appears, but it seems to be just an image selector.
@zyre, you mentioned that imagemagick wasn’t installed. Does this plugin depend on whether this is installed on the user’s computer?
Do I still need to add ajax_cropper.php to the root folder?
I’m looking to add this field at file level. So when we edit a file we immediately have the cropping option of the edited file.
No problem to add the field in the file blueprint but how could it be possible to have this file immediately selected? (by default it’s dropping list to select the file to crop among all files from folder).
