Module: Leaflet Map

Recommended Posts

Thanks again for the port to leaflet! I prefer OSM over google maps and have been using it for quite some time. Leaflet is very powerful and opens up many possibilities.

I forked Mats' module and added support for leaflet-providers so we can choose different map tile providers (see my post here). It is still a work in progress but seems stable. Once it is ready for production I'll make a pull request.

Mats, do you think we should use leaflet-providers as standard or offer the user a choice whether they want to use it or not?

Next up I will add an icon field and support for Leaflet.awesome-markers.

I think the providers can be a part of the module as long as one can choose from others providers like Mapbox.

Awesome markers support will be awesome!  :)

I agree. Added all available providers to the select dropdown and have set OpenStreetMap.Mapnik as default.

Will post the next days with update on awesome icons...

Thanks for the heads-up!

Since it's a beta i will wait until it's more stable and Marker cluster plug in is compatible with the new version.

I just discovered that if I have a Leaflet Map marker field in a template, but leave the lat and long empty in a page, CKEditor text field will not display its toolbar. Must be some JS meltdown.

I left the lat and long empty, because I am populating the map with an array of markers.

It is no problem after I discovered this (just added lat & long values to make it work), but it was quite frustrating at first :)

I notice that this module isn't in the module directory anymore, however I downloaded and installed it a few months ago so I'm using an old version for now. I have a page displaying a map, pulling in multiple locations from child pages and displaying as markers. That all works fine, but I'm wondering if it's possible to change what's included in the marker popup. Currently it just displays the child page title, I'd also like it to include a body field if it has content.

@houseofdeadleg

At the moment only the title is supported. You would need to change some code in the module:

https://github.com/madebymats/FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker/blob/master/MarkupLeafletMap.module#L115 -> add another line

'markerBodyField' => 'body',

https://github.com/madebymats/FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker/blob/master/MarkupLeafletMap.module#L192 -> add another line

$body = $options['markerBodyField'] ? $page->get($options['markerBodyField']) : ''; 

https://github.com/madebymats/FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker/blob/master/MarkupLeafletMap.module#L193 -> change line 193 to

$out .= "$id.addMarker($marker->lat, $marker->lng, '$url', '$title', '$body'); ";

https://github.com/madebymats/FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker/blob/master/MarkupLeafletMap.js#L65 -> change line 65 to

this.addMarker = function(lat, lng, url, title, body) {

https://github.com/madebymats/FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker/blob/master/MarkupLeafletMap.js#L98 -> change line 98 to

marker.bindPopup("<b><a href='" + marker.linkURL + "'>" + title + "</a></b><br>" + body);

Then in the template where you render the map, you need to include the markerBodyField in the options that you pass to the render function, e.g.

$options = array();
$options["markerTitleField"] = $page->title;
$options["markerBodyField"] = ($page->body) ? $page->body : "";
// ... more options
$map = $modules->get('MarkupLeafletMap'); 
echo $map->render($items, 'map', $options);

I have not tested this but it should work. Please report back here.

Looking again at my above implementation for additional content in the marker popup feels a bit hacky because the content of the popup is being constructed in MarkupLeafletMap.js

I think the cleaner and proper way of doing it would be to construct the HTML that goes into the popup on the template file level and then pass it to the map render function.

Something like this:

$options = array();
$options["markerPopupContent"] = "<b><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></b>{$page->body}";
// ... more options
$map = $modules->get('MarkupLeafletMap'); 
echo $map->render($items, 'map', $options);

Hope to get your opinion on this. I would then implement the code into my fork of this module.

Been having a play with this using your suggestions above. The first way shows the map and markers, but no content in the markers (and no console errors), the second way the map doesn't show but looking in the code generated all the copy os there but showing an error (SyntaxError: unterminated string literal).

@houseofdeadleg

sorry, I don't have the capacity to look into this thoroughly at the moment. I'll try and implement it like described in #11 within the next few weeks.

The unterminated string literal error often happens when strings with line breaks are used in JS variables. So we might need to account for that in the $options["markerPopupContent"] string when passing it to the javascript. Try using

$options["markerPopupContent"] = json_encode("<b><a href='{$page->url}'>{$page->title}</a></b>{$page->body}");

When trying to add a new field with this fieldtype I get the following error:

[RED] DB connect error 2006 - MySQL server has gone away
[GREEN] Geocode OK APPROXIMATE: 'Decatur, Georgia'
[GREEN] Geocoded your default address. Please hit save once again to commit the new default latitude and longitude.

after that in the admin it only states The process returned no content.

Any idea how to fix this? Using 3.0.18…

Seems to be at database problem. I can't duplicate the issue on my set up (also on 3.0.18).

Can you add other field types without the db issue?

I've a little problem to fix...

I've some fields that provide a complete address and i wanna use a MapMarker field with your module to generate the lat/long of this address entry...so i use a hook to change $page->mapfield->address but this don't work since the generating is triggert by the additional search field on the map....so how could i execute the generation of lat/long?

example hook:

/**
 * change address of the mapmarker field on save
 */
$pages->addHookAfter('saveReady', null, 'addEntry');
function addEntry(HookEvent $event) {
	$page = $event->arguments[0];
	if($page->template != 'eintrag' ) return; //for this template only
	//change the "standort" map marker with the adress data
	$page->standort->address = $page->strasse.' '.$page->hausnummer.', '.$page->PLZ.' '.$page->ort;
}

the address is saved in the mapmarker field right for example: "Examplestreet 5, 123456 Examplevillage"

but like described no generation of lat/long on save from the address field...

Version is 2.0.7 from github

Hi,

i use the MarkupGoogleCalendar module to display events pulled from a google calendar. I would like to display labels for these events on a map. The locations are available as addresses, not as lon/lat pairs.

Is there a way to pass the needed data to the Leaflet module?

Thanks! Ondra

@Mats @gebeer Thanks to a job I just finished for @dab I have been actively taking your work forward. I have a fork of the project here that...

005.png

I based my work on gebeer's extension of your repo Mats, so I have issued a pull request to gebeer - but I'd like to get these changes into your repo if possible as then we can revert to your repo as the master codebase and, hopefully, have the latest goodies straight from the PW module directory.

It's now very easy to add fields to the marker pages that let you customise their appearance. Below I have added an Options field, a FieldtypeFontIconPicker and a Text field to control the marker visuals via the added callback.

If anyone want's to try it out, here is the link to the zip file.

@houseofdeadleg Gebeer was on the right track when he posted the above. The error is due to the use of single quotes - I ran across it as part of the work I posted about above. If you still want to try the approach gebeer introduced then give this a shot...

$options = array();
$safe_title = str_replace("'", "\'", $page->title);
$safe_title = str_replace("\n", "<br />", $safe_title);
$safe_body  = str_replace("'", "\\'", $page->body);
$safe_body  = str_replace("\n", "<br />", $safe_body);
$options["markerPopupContent"] = "<b><a href=\"{$page->url}\">$safe_title</a></b>$safe_body";
// ... more options
$map = $modules->get('MarkupLeafletMap'); 
echo $map->render($items, 'map', $options);

We have to make sure that no un-escaped single quotes appear in anything we generate that gets inserted via the JS on the page. That also means we have to use escaped double quotes around the link's href attribute. We also have to prevent newline characters getting through that are part of any field - I do that as shown above rather than use the nl2br() method as nl2br prefixes all newlines with <br/> but does not remove the newlines.

Hope that helps!

Edited to add: Forgot to say, with the new version of the module you can just do this...

<?php
$map = $modules->get('MarkupLeafletMap'); 
$options = array(
    'popupFormatter' => function($page) {
        return $page->body;
    }
);
echo $map->render($items, 'your-marker-field-name', $options);
?>

That will append the page body content to the popup window. It also takes care of escaping single quotes and converting newlines into HTML breaks.

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Basic Usage

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
