Requirements

Installation

Installation is via Composer:

$ composer require silverware/google-maps

Configuration

In order for the map component to work, you will need to create a Google API Key. The key can be entered either into the SiteConfig area of the CMS (in SilverWare settings), or you can define the API key using YAML config:

SilverWare\Google\API\GoogleAPI:
  api_key: '<paste-api-key-here>'

Usage

Google Map Component

This module provides a GoogleMapComponent for use with your SilverWare app. The map component can be added to your SilverWare templates, layouts or panels using the CMS. After creating a map, you'll need to define the latitude and longitude to set the location for the map.

On the Style tab for the component, you may select Auto or Manual for the height mode. Auto mode will always maintain the map dimensions on any device or screen. Manual mode requires the pixel height of the map to be entered into the "Height manual" field. In manual mode, the map will always remain at the height entered.

On the Options tab, you may select the default zoom level for the map, and also the type of map from the following options (Roadmap is the default type):

  • Roadmap
  • Satellite
  • Hybrid
  • Terrain

Map Markers

By enabling the "Show marker for location" option on the Main tab, you may define the title, label and content for the default map location marker.

On the Markers tab, you may add additional markers to the map, each with it's own coordinates, title, label and content. It is recommended to use a label of short length for each marker (e.g. a single letter or number) due to space
