Magnolia Light Module for providing 2 google maps components:
install the light module using a package manager like npm or yarnnpm install google-maps-magnolia
google-maps-component and/or the
google-directions-component in you desired areas like this:availableComponents:google-maps:id: google-maps-magnolia:components/google-mapsgoogle-directions:id: google-maps-magnolia:components/google-directions
Hint: If you're having the travel-demo (magnolia sample site), these component will automatically be available in the "Standard" Templates (see screenshots above).
Retrieve a (free) Google Maps API Key https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/embed/guide?hl=en#api_key and set it as parameter
google-maps-magnolia-api-keyin the site definition like this:
(Optionally) customize your components by using your own templateScript. You can either do this by decorating the components or definining your own components, which then uses the
google-maps-magnolia:components/google-directionsdialog. The mentioned dialogs may be decorated as well.dialog: google-maps-magnolia:components/google-mapstemplateScript: /path/to/my/custom/template/script.ftl
Hint: You should try to stay upgradeable by including
utils.ftlin your own templateScript and using the provided macros and functions. Afterwards a simple package update like
npm update google-maps-magnoliawill give you the latest bugfixes and enhancements for this light module. For the same reason you probably shouldn't write your own dialog, but decorate the existing one with your custom fields. Here is an example, how you could extend/wrap the
google-mapscomponent in a custom component:[#include "/google-maps-magnolia/templates/inc/utils.ftl" /]<div class="my-custom-wrapper"><h2>My Custom Title</h2><p>My custom description</p>[@renderGoogleMapsComponent content=content /][#--Alternatively use [@renderGoogleDirectionsComponent content=content /]--]</div>
Offers an editor-friendly way to integrate Google Maps into Magnolia Sites:
- Name and Address Search
- Map Type (Roadmap vs Satellite)
- Custom Zoom Level
- Interface Language (with all language codes currently supported by google)
- Offers a responsive Mode, where Google Maps retains a predefined aspect ratio, no matter the screen size.
- Directions including travel data
- Routes to avoid (tolls, ferrys, highways)
- custom distance units (km vs miles)
