Geocoder Service module for Zend Framework

v1.1.1 2016-10-15 14:57 UTC


This package allows you to use Geocoder in Zend Framework.

It is still compatible with Zend Framework 2 and 3 Service Manager.


Please see the composer.json file.


Run the following composer command:

$ composer require "jguittard/zf-geocoder:~1.0"

Alternately, manually add the following to your composer.json, in the require section:

"require": {
    "jguittard/zf-geocoder": "~1.0"

And then run composer update to ensure the module is installed.

Finally, add the module name to your project's config/application.config.php under the modules key:

return array(
    /* ... */
    'modules' => array(
        /* ... */
    /* ... */

Or rely on Zend Component Installer to inject this module automatically

composer require zendframework/zend-composer-installer:^0.4


Copy the config/zf.geocoder.local.php.dist to the config/autoload directory and remove the dist extension to jump start configuration.


You can retrieve Geocoder documentation

The following will handle setup and service management within this Zend Framework module.

First, make sure you have set up your configuration file by commenting out the provider(s) you'd like to use.

For example, in config/autoload/zf.geocoder.local.php:

return [
    'geocoder' => [
        'httpAdapter' => '<SERVICE_KEY_OF_HTTP_ADAPTER>',
        'providers' => [
            'google_maps' => [
                'locale' => 'fr_FR',
                'region' => 'Île-de-France',
                'useSsl' => false,

Every provider is exposed as a service in the main Service Manager following the convention: Geocoder\<PROVIDER_NAME_IN_CAMELCASE> Such service will be an instance of corresponding Geocoder\Provider\<PROVIDER_NAME_IN_CAMELCASE> with appropriate configuration passed to its constructor

For example, in your controller:

public function localeAction()
    /* ... */
    $geocoder = $this->getServiceLocator()->get('Geocoder\GoogleMaps');
    $addressCollection = $geocoder->geocode('10 avenue Gambetta, Paris, France');
    /* ... */

Obviously, such a call is bad practice. You should consider injecting your Geocoder service in a dedicated service, not call it from a controller
