Prerequisites

  • PHP >= 7.1.3
  • Laravel >= 5.5

This package is the continuation of GeneaLabs/Phpgmaps. The move to the more appropriately-named package namespace is in preparation for a complete rewrite of the package, optimizing it for Laravel.

PhpGmaps

This repo aims to keep appitventures/phpgmaps alive, hopefully filling in temporarily until they make their repo available again, or else continuing its maintenance going forward and keeping it working with future versions of Laravel.

Currently only Laravel 5.* is supported.

Installation

Add the repo to composer.json under this new namespace:

composer require genealabs/laravel-maps

Add an environment variable with your Google Maps API Key in your .env file:

GOOGLE_MAPS_API_KEY=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Lastly, add the following entry to your \config\services.php config file:

    'google' => [
        'maps' => [
            'api-key' => env('GOOGLE_MAPS_API_KEY'),
        ],
    ],

Example

The following code will prompt the user for access to their geolocation and then creates a map centered on their lat/lng

Route::get('/', function(){
    $config = array();
    $config['center'] = 'auto';
    $config['onboundschanged'] = 'if (!centreGot) {
            var mapCentre = map.getCenter();
            marker_0.setOptions({
                position: new google.maps.LatLng(mapCentre.lat(), mapCentre.lng())
            });
        }
        centreGot = true;';

    app('map')->initialize($config);

    // set up the marker ready for positioning
    // once we know the users location
    $marker = array();
    app('map')->add_marker($marker);

    $map = app('map')->create_map();
    echo "<html><head><script type="text/javascript">var centreGot = false;</script>".$map['js']."</head><body>".$map['html']."</body></html>";
});

More Examples

BIOINSTALL has a great website showing how to do all the things with the class. No reason to reinvent the wheel, so here it is. The only thing to note is that $this->googlemaps is now either the facade Map:: or the app variable app('map').
