vue-google-maps

Vue-2 port of vue-google-maps

This is the Vue 2.x port of vue-google-maps!

If you have used vue-google-maps with Vue 1.x before, refer to Upgrading.

Installation

With npm (Recommended)

npm install vue2-google-maps

In your project:

import Vue from 'vue'
import * as VueGoogleMaps from 'vue2-google-maps'
Vue.use(VueGoogleMaps, {
  load: {
    key: 'AIzaSyBvWE_sIwKbWkiuJQOf8gSk9qzpO96fhfY',
    libraries: 'places', // This is required if you use the Autocomplete plugin
    // OR: libraries: 'places,drawing'
    // OR: libraries: 'places,drawing,visualization'
    // (as you require)
  }
})

Nuxt.js projects

For Nuxt.js projects, please import VueGoogleMaps in the following manner:

import * as VueGoogleMaps from '~/node_modules/vue2-google-maps/src/main'

This is required for successful server-side rendering.

(Note: as of v0.8.1, you should add src/main to the path)

Manually

Just download dist/vue-google-maps.js file and include it from your HTML. If you use this method, Vue 2.1.x is required.

Example.

Basic usage / Documentation

See API.

Showcase with a lot of features

Brief

If you want to write google map this way :

<gmap-map
  :center="{lat:10, lng:10}"
  :zoom="7"
  map-type-id="terrain"
  style="width: 500px; height: 300px"
></gmap-map>

Or use the power of Vue.js within a google map like this:

<template>
  <gmap-map
    :center="center"
    :zoom="7"
    style="width: 500px; height: 300px"
  >
    <gmap-marker
      :key="index"
      v-for="(m, index) in markers"
      :position="m.position"
      :clickable="true"
      :draggable="true"
      @click="center=m.position"
    ></gmap-marker>
  </gmap-map>
</template>
 
<script>
  /////////////////////////////////////////
  // New in 0.4.0
  import * as VueGoogleMaps from 'vue2-google-maps';
  import Vue from 'vue';
 
  Vue.use(VueGoogleMaps, {
    load: {
      key: 'YOUR_API_TOKEN',
      v: 'OPTIONAL VERSION NUMBER',
      // libraries: 'places', //// If you need to use place input
    }
  });
 
  export default {
    data () {
      return {
        center: {lat: 10.0, lng: 10.0},
        markers: [{
          position: {lat: 10.0, lng: 10.0}
        }, {
          position: {lat: 11.0, lng: 11.0}
        }]
      }
    }
  }
</script> 

Use with vue-router / components that change their visibility

If you are using vue-router, you may encounter the problem where you see greyed-out areas because you haven't triggered a resize on the map after its visibility has changed.

You have two options:

Option A

(Version 0.5.0) Run Vue.$gmapDefaultResizeBus.$emit('resize').

For example, you can write the following to force all maps on your page to re-render:

watch: {
  '$route'(to, from) {
    // Call resizePreserveCenter() on all maps
    Vue.$gmapDefaultResizeBus.$emit('resize')
  }
}

If you wish to be more selective about which maps receive the resize event, you can define resizeBus individually on each map. (See API). This will disconnect the map from Vue.$gmapDefaultResizeBus.

Option B

Call vm.$refs.<YOUR_MAP_HERE>.resizePreserveCenter() on every map instance that you have

Testing

There is a non-comprehensive test for the DeferredReady mixin. More automated tests should be written to help new contributors.

Meanwhile, please test your changes against the suite of examples.

Improvements to the tests are welcome :)

Standalone / CDN

If you are not using any bundler, include vue-google-maps/dist/vue-google-maps.js instead. The library will be available in a global object called VueGoogleMap. However you will need to include Vue and Lodash beforehand:

<head>
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/vue/2.1.6/vue.js"></script> 
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/lodash.js/4.16.4/lodash.js"></script> 
  <script src="dist/vue-google-maps.js"></script> 
</head>
<body>
 
  <div id="root">
    <gmap-map style="width: 100%; height: 100%; position: absolute; left:0; top:0"
        :center="{lat: 1.38, lng: 103.8}"
        :zoom="12"
    >
 
    </gmap-map>
  </div>
 
  <script>
    Vue.use(VueGoogleMaps, {
      load: {
        key: 'YOUR_API_TOKEN',
        v: 'OPTIONAL VERSION NUMBER',
        // libraries: 'places', //// If you need to use place input
      }
    })
 
    new Vue({
        el: '#root',
    });
 
  </script> 
 
</body>

Set your api key

To enable any vue-google-maps components you need to set your api token:

Vue.use(VueGoogleMap, {
  load: {
    key: 'YOUR_API_TOKEN',
    v: '3.26',                // Google Maps API version
    // libraries: 'places',   // If you want to use places input
  }
})

The parameters are passed in the query string to the Google Maps API, e.g. to set the version, libraries, or for localisation.
