Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

Is there a version of smd_xml that works with 4.73 & PHP 7.3 that is available for download?

Try v0.4.2 which should work a heap better on more recent Textpattern/PHP versions. Please let me know if anything is amiss.

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

Bloke, that’s beautiful. A wall of errors just disappeared (this plugin gets used a bunch on one of my fave sites.)

Thank you.

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

No problems. I just spotted that I missed a couple of tag registrations for the conditional tags. I’ll add those and get a new version bundled up in a few minutes, sorry.

EDIT: Done. v0.4.3 is up

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

Now that I finished with my deadlines/submissions, I am back trying to enhance the media shortcode and I am examining the vimeo API in order to parse some info in the pages. Vimeo has an xml file for each video, the ID of which is the same as the one in the page url. Sample from: http://vimeo.com/api/v2/video/336049258.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<videos>
	<video>
		<id>336049258</id>
		<title>Self as Actor: Colonising identity</title>
		<description>Footage from the exhibition 'Self as Actor: Colonising identity,'  exhibition, (part of the State Machines project) at the NeMe Arts Centre. &lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt; Further information can be found on http://www.neme.org/projects/state-machines/self-as-actor</description>
		<url>https://vimeo.com/336049258</url>
		<upload_date>2019-05-14 04:22:20</upload_date>
		<thumbnail_small>https://i.vimeocdn.com/video/782791131_100x75.jpg</thumbnail_small>
		<thumbnail_medium>https://i.vimeocdn.com/video/782791131_200x150.jpg</thumbnail_medium>
		<thumbnail_large>https://i.vimeocdn.com/video/782791131_640.jpg</thumbnail_large>
		<user_id>321806</user_id>
		<user_name>NeMe</user_name>
		<user_url>https://vimeo.com/nemeorg</user_url>
		<user_portrait_small>https://i.vimeocdn.com/portrait/885175_30x30</user_portrait_small>

		<user_portrait_large>https://i.vimeocdn.com/portrait/885175_100x100</user_portrait_large>
		<user_portrait_huge>https://i.vimeocdn.com/portrait/885175_300x300</user_portrait_huge>
		<duration>384</duration>
		<width>426</width>
		<height>240</height>
		<tags>statemachines, neme, exhibitions, social media</tags>
		<embed_privacy>anywhere</embed_privacy>
	</video>
</videos>

I have installed the plugin and I am testing this code in a textile disabled article

<txp:smd_xml data="http://vimeo.com/api/v2/video/336049258.xml" record="item" fields="title,description,url,thumbnail_large,thumbnail_medium" wraptag="" limit="1" cache_time="86400">
	<p><a rel="external" href="{url}">{title}</a>
	<br />{description}</p>
	<picture>
		<source media="(min-width:650px)" srcset="{thumbnail_large}" />
		<source media="(min-width:465px)" srcset="{thumbnail_medium}" />
		<img src="{thumbnail_medium}" alt="{title}" style="width:auto;" />
	</picture> 
</txp:smd_xml>

but it returns no results. It is the first time I am using this plugin (or the vimeo api), and I hope that I am using both correctly.

On a similar vein, I seem to remember that some xml parsing functions are now available in the core and I was wondering if something similar to the above could be achieved without a plugin.

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

Try with record="video" since that’s what each record is wrapped with.

We have made a step

this is my parsed outcome…

<p><a rel="external" href="{url}">{title}</a>
<br />{description}</p>
 <picture>
  <source media="(min-width:650px)" srcset="{thumbnail_large}" />
  <source media="(min-width:465px)" srcset="{thumbnail_medium}" />
<img src="{thumbnail_medium}" alt="{title}" style="width:100%;height:auto;" />
</picture>

The XML endpoint URL doesn’t return any data for me when I download it. Just a blank structure with no data in any of the nodes. Hence there’s nothing to replace. Are you sure the URL is correct?

Re: smd_xml : extract data from XML feeds

You are absolutely right. When I am logged out of vimeo the xml returns an empty structure.

I discovered that json returns the expected results using https://vimeo.com/api/oembed.json?url=http%3A//vimeo.com/336049258. I am now examining how to edit them in order to only show what is needed.
