A simplistic integration for Google Maps on any TCA text field.

It allows you to either leverage Google Static Maps for a very privacy protected API Access or Google Maps to search places with a rich interface.


composer require cedricziel/formengine-map


You need a Google Maps API key activated with the following APIs:

This key needs to be configured in the ExtensionManager.

The default configuration attaches a field of type text with renderType=cz_map to the tt_content TCA table.

'tx_formenginemap_address' => [
    'exclude' => 0,
    'label'   => 'Map',
    'config'  => [
        'type'       => 'text',
        'renderType' => 'cz_map',
        'cols'       => 40,
        'rows'       => 15,
        'eval'       => 'trim',
        'size'       => 50,
        'default'    => '',

Usage on other tables / colums

Just define a text column with a renderType of cz_map.

You can then use the included DataProcessor to transport the value to your view.


As the column is filled with a JSON blob, you need to deserialize it, before passing it to the view. You can do so (preferably) in a DataProcessor, or use a ViewHelper to deserialize it in the view..

The extension ships a DataProcessor that attaches to lib.fluidContent, when the static template is included.

You can use the following snippet to attach it to any other element:

tt_content.my_ctype {
    dataProcessing {
        197 = CedricZiel\FormEngine\Map\DataProcessing\FormEngineMapProcessor
        197 {
            as = map
            field = tx_formenginemap_address

This will process the given tx_formenginemap_address field on the given row so that you can use the map variable in your fluid templates.
