Vue composable for Google Maps Places Autocomplete.

Though not a fork, this composable is fully inspired by react-google-places-autocomplete and use-places-autocomplete.


yarn add v-use-places-autocomplete


<!-- Load the library using the script tag -->
<script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR_API_KEY&libraries=places"></script>
  <input type="text" v-model="query" placeholder="Search a place..." />
    <li v-for="item in suggestions" :key="item.place_id" v-text="item.description" />

import { defineComponent, ref } from 'vue' // or @vue/composition-api
import { usePlacesAutocomplete } from 'v-use-places-autocomplete'

export default defineComponent({
  setup() {
    const query = ref('')
    const { suggestions } = usePlacesAutocomplete(query, {
      debounce: 500,
      minLengthAutocomplete: 3

    return {


const {
} = usePlacesAutocomplete(query, options);


Key Type Default Description
apiKey string "" If this parameter is passed, the component will inject the Google Maps JavaScript API using this apiKey. So there's no need to manually add the script tag to your HTML document.
apiOptions object {} Object to configure the google script to inject.
autocompletionRequest object {} Autocompletion request object to add restrictions to the search.
debounce number 300 The number of milliseconds to delay before making a call to Google Maps API.
minLengthAutocomplete number 0 Defines a minimum number of characters needed on the input in order to make requests to the Google's API.
onLoadFailed function console.error Function to be called when the injection of the Google Maps JavaScript API fails due to network error.
withSessionToken boolean false If this is set to true, the composable will handle changing the sessionToken on every session. To learn more about how this works refer to Google Places Session Token docs.

suggestions array [] Contains the autocomplete predictions.
loading boolean false Indicates the status of a request is pending or has completed.

Converts an address or location or placeId and optionally bounds, componentRestrictions, region. It'll be passed as Geocoding Requests.

const parameter = {
  address: "Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway Corp., Antuwanga, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines",
  // or
  placeId: "ChIJk6_7UFmdqTMRgFAxl4KEnUQ",

const results = await getGeocode(parameter);
console.log('Geocoding results: ', results);


Allows to get the latitude and longitude from the result object of getGeocode.

const parameter = {
  address: "Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway Corp., Antuwanga, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines",
  // or
  placeId: "ChIJk6_7UFmdqTMRgFAxl4KEnUQ",

const results = await getGeocode(parameter);
const latLng = await getLatLng(results[0]);

const { lat, lng } = latLng;
console.log('Coordinates: ', { lat, lng });
