Snazzy Maps (FREE)

Post by Adendum » Mon Dec 09, 2013 10:38 pm

This extension is based on the Snazzy Maps repository of styled Google Maps using the Google Maps JavaScript API v3 code.

A simple utility to allow you to style a Google Map to suit your website design and colour scheme or to use any of 24 pre-set styles.

Demo.

NOTE:
[a] You are required to set up you own API key via the Google Developers website. It is not difficult and is entirely free - but without your own API key the extension will not work.
This is a simple extension - but read the help PDF before you ask for support and take the time to understand how the wizard works as I will not be giving support on the wizard!

Have fun

Paul, you seem to have packaged the project file (XWB) instead of the complied extension.

Paul;

Great stuff! I have now used it for an upcoming site. However the only snag is, unlike BF's version of GMaps, it does not let me add a Pin for the exact location. A very welcomed feature request if at all possible.

Thanks gain.

Send me an example of how the code looks for a Google Map with a marker and I'll see what I can do. e.g. the html and/or the JavaScript used.

Bendigo,

Bacon's extension (if that is what you used in the NLS site) uses an iFrame and I assume embedded code taken from the Google Map site. Snazzy Maps is using API and JavaScript to create the maps. So as far as I can tell it's a quite different approach.

However I'll take a look again at the API documentation and see what I can find in there....must be something.

Anyone else who has been there and done that please feel free to help me shortcut this!!

I stand corrected :)

And I also have made some progress with a standard Marker but I am 100% sure that won't be enough, so I am looking at all the options including custom marker icons, animation and a few other extras!

Blame Bendigo!

Re: Snazzy Maps (FREE) *** UPDATED ***

Post by Adendum » Wed Jan 08, 2014 7:39 pm

v1.0.0.1 released
Aditerum _ Snazzy Maps.jpg
1. Removed width and height setting and replaced size requirements with the size of the drawn extension.
2. Added map marker facility with animated bounce in. Marker image is customisable and I have provided a sample set that can be downloaded from the revised demo page.
3. Added info text box when marker clicked.
4. New demo page.

BEWARE - The new Info Box uses the standard WWB Rich Text editor and the code does not like carriage returns SO DO NOT HIT THE ENTER KEY when entering your Info Box text.


@Bendigo - I expect to see a really sexy NLS page within the week!!!!
