Mapbox-GL Draw Passing Mode

npm

Custom mode for Mapbox GL Draw that adds passing drawing (the ability to draw features but doesn't add them). this can be used whenever there's a need to draw features to manipulate others, e.g., when cutting or splitting features.

Demo

See a full example in the docs folder, or check at the Demo.

Install

npm i mapbox-gl-draw-passing-mode

or use CDN:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/mapbox-gl-draw-passing-mode"></script>

Usage

Import passing modes and add them to mapbox-gl-draw:

import * as mapboxGlDrawPassingMode from "mapbox-gl-draw-passing-mode";
// or global variable mapboxGlDrawPassingMode when using script tag

const draw = new MapboxDraw({
  modes: {
    ...MapboxDraw.modes,
    passing_draw_point: mapboxGlDrawPassingMode.passing_draw_point,
    passing_draw_line_string: mapboxGlDrawPassingMode.passing_draw_line_string,
    passing_draw_polygon: mapboxGlDrawPassingMode.passing_draw_polygon,
  },
});

Then change mode to one of the passing mode. to handle drawn features, instead of using draw.create event, you can pass a callback or use the draw.passing-create event (fired after feature is drawn and only if callback is not provided).

// this will fire `draw.passing-create` event on feature draw
draw.changeMode("passing_mode_line_string");

// or pass a callback to handle drawn feature (no event would emit)
draw.changeMode("passing_mode_line_string", {
  onDraw: (feature) => {
    console.log(feature);
  },
  onCancel: () => {
    /// ...
  },
});

when activated, these modes act like Mapbox Gl Draw default modes (draw_point, draw_line_string, and draw_polygon), only they don't add the feature to the map, therefore no draw.create event is fired.

Development

Use npm run dev command to start the local server on port 3000 then navigate to /test.html.

Acknowledgement

The inspiration is from the Radius Mode created by @chriswhong and the discussion here.
