@react-google-maps/api

This library requires React v16.6 or later. To use the latest features (including hooks) requires React v16.8+. If you need support for earlier versions of React, you should check out react-google-maps

This is complete re-write of the (sadly unmaintained) react-google-maps library. We thank tomchentw for his great work that made possible.

@react-google-maps/api provides very simple bindings to the google maps api and lets you use it in your app as React components.

Here are the main additions to react-google-maps that were the motivation behind this re-write

Install @react-google-maps/api

with NPM

npm i -S @react-google-maps/api

or Yarn

yarn add @react-google-maps/api
import React from 'react'
import { GoogleMap, LoadScript } from '@react-google-maps/api';
 
const containerStyle = {
  width: '400px',
  height: '400px'
};
 
const center = {
  lat: -3.745,
  lng: -38.523
};
 
function MyComponent() {
  const [map, setMap] = React.useState(null)
 
  const onLoad = React.useCallback(function callback(map) {
    const bounds = new window.google.maps.LatLngBounds();
    map.fitBounds(bounds);
    setMap(map)
  }, [])
 
  const onUnmount = React.useCallback(function callback(map) {
    setMap(null)
  }, [])
 
  return (
    <LoadScript
      googleMapsApiKey="YOUR_API_KEY"
    >
      <GoogleMap
        mapContainerStyle={containerStyle}
        center={center}
        zoom={10}
        onLoad={onLoad}
        onUnmount={onUnmount}
      >
        { /* Child components, such as markers, info windows, etc. */ }
        <></>
      </GoogleMap>
    </LoadScript>
  )
}
 
export default React.memo(MyComponent)

Migration from react-google-maps@9.4.5

if you need an access to map object, instead of ref prop, you need to use onLoad callback on <GoogleMap /> component.

Before:

// before - don't do that!
<GoogleMap
  ref={map => {
    const bounds = new window.google.maps.LatLngBounds();
 
    map.fitBounds(bounds);
  }}
/>

After:

<GoogleMap
  onLoad={map => {
    const bounds = new window.google.maps.LatLngBounds();
    map.fitBounds(bounds);
  }}
  onUnmount={map => {
    // do your stuff before map is unmounted
  }}
/>

If you want to use window.google object, you need to extract GoogleMap in separate module, so it is lazy executed then google-maps-api script is loaded and executed by <LoadScript />. If you try to use window.google before it is loaded it will be undefined and you'll get a TypeError.

Main features

  • Simplified API
  • Uses the new Context API
  • Supports async React (StrictMode compliant)
  • Removes lodash dependency => smaller bundle size 12.4kb gzip, tree-shakeable https://bundlephobia.com/result?p=@react-google-maps/api
  • forbids loading of Roboto fonts, if you set property preventGoogleFonts on <LoadScript preventGoogleFonts /> component

Examples

Examples can be found in two places:

  1. Official docs (powered by react-styleguidist.
  2. A Gatsby app including some examples. See the examples folder
  3. Gatsby.js Demo

Advice

Using the examples requires you to generate a google maps api key. For instructions on how to do that please see the following guide

How to test changes locally

When working on a feature/fix, you're probably gonna want to test your changes. This workflow is a work in progress. Please feel free to improve it!

  1. In the file packages/react-google-maps-api/package.json change main to "src/index.ts"
  2. In the same file, delete the module field
  3. You can now use the package react-google-maps-api-gatsby-example to test your changes. Just make sure you change the import from @react-google-maps/api to ../../../react-google-maps-api

Since 1.2.0 you can use onLoad and onMount props for each @react-google-maps/api component, ref does not contain API methods anymore.

Since version 1.2.2 We added useGoogleMap hook, which is working only with React@16.8.1 and later versions.
