Module: Leaflet Map

Recommended Posts

The ProcessWire modules directory link for Fieldtype Leaflet Map Marker is pointing to the master branch's ZIP archive which is the 2.8.1 version. I'm assuming that needs to be updated to point to the proper Github location.

I installed the version 3.0.3 (PW3) and tested the geocoding and It can't find many places and even street numbers. Please correct me if I'm wrong but Google Geocoding can't work without an API key and the module doesn't ask for a key so it's probably using Leaflet's default geocoding cause when I search for example "Terra Vibe Park" I'm getting Nothing found but if I go on this sample that uses Leaflet with Esri Geocoding and search for "Terra Vibe Park" it will find it. Shouldn't be better to update the module to use Esri Geocoding? According to that sample code it doesn't seem to require any API key.

I started working on a module that will use exclusively the Esri Geocoding.

Since you're using the Leaflet Control Geocoder on your module that supports various geocoders, you should update it to let the user select which one they want to use by supplying their API key if the selected geocoder requires it.

EDIT: Unfortunately Esri isn't free.

Is it possible to use Leaflet's layer groups with this module? I have three pages, each containing a map, each one showing a different kind of data. I'd like to be able to have one map that shows all three types of data with the ability to turn layers on and off, each type being a different layer.

I'm thinking that the best way to do this is going to be by using the module to handle the backend, geocoding the data in the relevant pages/child pages, but using plain Leaflet.js to output the data on the front-end. Any other thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated though.

Dear Mats,

I'm trying to get your Leaflet Map Module with PJAX to work. I'm using the MoXo https://github.com/MoOx/pjax library but seem to have some troubles with it: I managed to configure PJAX that the inline JavaScript is executed after every page fetch, but I get Error: Map container is already initialized.

Any ideas how to approach this? 

EDIT:

I decided to use my own code with the standard Leaflet library and getting the marker with data attributes:

.map(data-lat=$map->lat data-lng=$map->lng data-zoom=$map->zoom data-address=$map->address)

initializing the map with 

import L from "leaflet";
document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function(event) {
  let container = document.querySelector(".map");
  let mymap = L.map(container).setView([container.dataset.lat, container.dataset.lng], container.dataset.zoom);
  L.tileLayer('https://api.tiles.mapbox.com/v4/{id}/{z}/{x}/{y}.png?access_token={accessToken}', {
  maxZoom: 18,
  id: 'mapbox.outdoors'}).addTo(mymap);
  let marker = L.marker([container.dataset.lat, container.dataset.lng])
  }).addTo(mymap);
});

and triggering DOMContentLoaded in pjax:

document.addEventListener("pjax:success", function(event){
  window.document.dispatchEvent(new Event("DOMContentLoaded", {
    bubbles: true,
    cancelable: true
  }));
});

I tried using this module on a new website and it looks like it's no longer functioning, probably due to the Google Api issues.

When I add a new Field I immediately get the error "Error geocoding address" and cannot update the address without getting this error, and it no longer returns the lat/lng points when I change the address.

      Hi all,
      I'm a new to website building. Learned some CRASH course of js,jquery,php. Then I found CMS. Still learning around forum, youtube....
      Anyway, please help me with some beginer questions:
      1, About template - please correct me if I understand wrong : every page should be (or recommended) built on a template. So if in total I'll have 10 pages, 2 of them have same layout, I'll need 9 templates.  And, what fields a page includes, is not defined in page, but defined in the template that page uses. 
      2,  Where to see what modules I've installed? is it in "Modules - Site"? 
      3, I installed "PageTable Extended", then what?  As in a youtube tutorial, it should appear in Setup tab, but it doesn't.  What's in there: templates,fields,logs,comments. (I installed "Uikit 3 site_blog profile".)
      4, I did a search in Processwire website for the famous "repeater matrix" module, and can not find it, there's a Repeater, as well as a Matrix. Is it not a module?
      5, I watched this youtube tuts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqnLQy9R1A
      Anybody familiar with this tuts please help: 
      After he analysed a target webpage layout he wanted to mimic, he created some fields, some template, then based on those he created a page and input some "content" in there, then clicked "view", it's just some text. So, here comes my question, he copied a folder "assets" (subfolders are: css,fonts,js,img) over, then the page have the appearance/layout he wanted to mimic. Where does that assets folder come from?
      Appreciate any help.

      I've created a set of modules for importing (manipulating and displaying) data from external resources. A key requirement was to handle large (100k+) number of pages easily.
      Main features
      import data from CSV and XML sources in the background (using Tasker) purge, update or overwrite existing pages using selectors user configurable input <-> field mappings on-the-fly data conversion and composition (e.g. joining CSV columns into a single field) download external resources (files, images) during import handle page references by any (even numeric) fields How it works
      You can upload CSV or XML files to DataSet pages and specify import rules in their description.
      The module imports the content of the file and creates/updates child pages automatically.
      How to use it
      Create a DataSet page that stores the source file. The file's description field specifies how the import should be done:
      After saving the DataSet page an import button should appear below the file description.

      When you start the import the DataSet module creates a task (executed by Tasker) that will import the data in the background.
      You can monitor its execution and check its logs for errors.

      See the module's wiki for more details.
      The module was already used in three projects to import and handle large XML and CSV datasets. It has some rough edges and I'm sure it needs improvement so comments are welcome.

      TemplateEnginePug (formally TemplateEngineJade)
       
      This module adds Pug templates to the TemplateEngineFactory. It uses https://github.com/pug-php/pug to render templates.
      doctype html html(lang='en') head meta(http-equiv='content-type', content='text/html; charset=utf-8') title= $page->title link(rel='stylesheet', type='text/css', href=$config->urls->templates . 'styles/main.css') body include header.pug h1= $page->title if $page->editable() p: a(href=$page->editURL) Edit Project on GitHub: github.com/dreerr/TemplateEnginePug
      Project in modules directory: modules.processwire.com/modules/template-engine-pug/
       
      For common problems/features/questions about the Factory, use the TemplateEngineFactory thread.

      Pages At Bottom
      Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
      A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
      Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
      The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
      Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
      Why?
      Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
      Usage
      Install the Pages At Bottom module.
      Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.
