django-gmapify 0.1

Add a Google Map to a template with a simple tag.

# django-gmapify

Add a Google Map to a template with a simple tag.

Django-gmapify provides an easy way to manage the Google Maps JavaScript API v3 using a simple tag:

{% gmapify "map-canvas" 36.84531718210699 -2.4523544311523438 %}

## Installation

Using `pip`:

$ pip install django-gmapify

Or cloning the project from github:

$ git clone git@javimb/django-gmapify.git
$ cd django-gmapify
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

## Usage

Add `gmapify` to `INSTALLED_APPS`:


Create a div in the template. The map will fill this div, so it has to have width and heigth:

<div id="map-canvas" style="width:500px;height:500px;"></div>

Load and use the provided `gmapify` tag in the template:

{% load gmapify %}
{% gmapify <html_id> <lat> <lng> [zoom=<zoom>] [map_type=<map_type>] [marker_title=<marker_title>] %}

Django-gmapify provides all the JavaScript stuff for Google Maps API v3, so put the `gmapify` tag at the end of the template.

### Optional args

- **zoom:** The initial resolution at which to display the map, where zoom 0 corresponds to a map of the Earth fully zoomed out, and higher zoom levels zoom in at a higher resolution. 15 by default.
- **map_type:** The initial map type. ROADMAP by default. The following map types are supported:
- **ROADMAP:** displays the normal, default 2D tiles of Google Maps.
- **SATELLITE:** displays photographic tiles.
- **HYBRID:** displays a mix of photographic tiles and a tile layer for prominent features (roads, city names).
- **TERRAIN:** displays physical relief tiles for displaying elevation and water features (mountains, rivers, etc.).
- **marker_title:** The title of the marker. If it's not provided, no marker will be displayed.
