Usage

  1. Install from npm

     npm install vue-static-map
    

    Or include in your html using the script tag

    <script src="https://unpkg.com/vue-static-map/dist/StaticMap.js"></script>
    
  2. Add component in your app

    import StaticMap from 'vue-static-map';
    // or require('vue-static-map')
    // or window.StaticMap if you are including in a script tag
    
    export default {
    	components: {
    		StaticMap,
    	},
    }
    
    
  3. Create some parameters in your data object

    export default {
    	data: {
    		apiKey: 'YOUR_GOOGLE_API_KEY', // required
    		zoom: 13, // required
    		center: 'Brooklyn+Bridge,New+York,NY',
    		format: 'gif',
    		language: 'ja',
    		markers: [
    			{
    				label: 'B', color: 'blue', lat: 40.702147, lng: -74.015794, size: 'normal',
    			},
    			{
    				label: 'Y', color: 'yellow', lat: 40.711614, lng: -74.012318, size: 'tiny',
    			},
    			{
    				label: 'G', color: 'green', lat: 40.718217, lng: -74.015794, size: 'small', icon: 'http://www.airsoftmap.net/images/pin_map.png',
    			},
    		],
    		paths: [
    			{
    				color: 'blue',
    				weight: 8,
    				geodesic: false,
    				fillcolor: '0xFFFF0033',
    				locations: [
    					{ startLat: 40.737102, endLng: -73.990318 },
    					{ startLat: 40.749825, endLng: -73.987963 },
    					{ startLat: 40.752946, endLng: -73.987384 },
    					{ startLat: 40.762946, endLng: -73.997399 },
    				],
    			},
    		],
    		type: 'roadmap',
    		size: [800, 400],
    	},
    	components: {
    		StaticMap,
    	},
    }
    
  4. In your template just call the static map component

    <static-map :google-api-key="apiKey" :format="format" :markers="markers" :zoom="zoom" :center="center" :size="size" :type="type" :paths="paths" :language="language"></static-map>
    

Events

  1. What about if you want the URL of the map, you can easily do that using the getUrl event

    	function getUrl(url) {
    		this.url = url;
    	}
    
    	export default {
    		data: () => {
    			const dataValues = {
    				apiKey: 'YOUR_API_KEY',
    				center: 'Empire State Building',
    				url: '',
    				zoom: 13,
    			};
    			return dataValues;
    		},
    		name: 'app',
    		components: {
    			StaticMap,
    		},
    		methods: {
    			getUrl,
    		},
    	};
    
  2. Add the event on your template

    <static-map :google-api-key="apiKey" v-on:get-url="getUrl" :zoom="zoom" :center="center"></static-map>
