Quickstart Guide

To start using the leaflet-rails gem, follow the steps below (assuming you use the default asset pipeline):

First, add the following code to your Gemfile.

gem 'leaflet-rails'

Then, run bundle install from within your project to download the necessary files. Following that, open your application-wide CSS file (app/assets/stylesheets/application.css) and add the following line as a comment:

= require leaflet

After that, open your application-wide Javascript file (typically app/assets/javascripts/application.js) and add the following line before requiring files which depend on Leaflet:

= require leaflet

At this point, you may skip the first two steps of the Leaflet Quick Start guide and start at the third step (adding the map div to a view).

Rails 4.1+

If you are using Rails 4.1+ you will need to open your application-wide CSS file (app/assets/stylesheets/application.css) and add the following lines at the top:

//= depend_on_asset "layers.png"
//= depend_on_asset "layers-2x.png"

Version Parity

leaflet-rails tries to keep version parity with leaflet.js. However, this isn't possible in all cases. Discrepancies have been noted below.

leaflet-rails leaflet.js Reason
0.7.4 0.7.3 Requested in #33 because of large gap between master and rubygems.org.

Helpers

To get you up and running quickly, you can also use the gem's helper. To get started, add the following lines to a file called leaflet.rb in config/initializers:

Leaflet.tile_layer = "http://{s}.tile.cloudmade.com/YOUR-CLOUDMADE-API-KEY/997/256/{z}/{x}/{y}.png"
# You can also use any other tile layer here if you don't want to use Cloudmade - see http://leafletjs.com/reference.html#tilelayer for more
Leaflet.attribution = "Your attribution statement"
Leaflet.max_zoom = 18

If you are using a tile layer which requires non-default subdomains such as MapQuest-OSM Tiles, you can set the subdomains like this:

Leaflet.tile_layer = "http://{s}.mqcdn.com/tiles/1.0.0/map/{z}/{x}/{y}.png"
Leaflet.subdomains = ['otile1', 'otile2', 'otile3', 'otile4']

You will then be able to call the #map helper method in a view, and make sure that the helper method is inside an erb tag like so: ```ruby

<%= map(:center => { :latlng => [51.52238797921441, -0.08366235665359283], :zoom => 18 }) %>

You can also add any number of markers like so:
```ruby
map(:center => {
    :latlng => [51.52238797921441, -0.08366235665359283],
    :zoom => 18
  },
  :markers => [
    {
       :latlng => [51.52238797921441, -0.08366235665359283],
    }
  ]
)

Adding a :popup element to a marker hash will also generate a popup for a maker:

map(:center => {
    :latlng => [51.52238797921441, -0.08366235665359283],
    :zoom => 18
  },
  :markers => [
     {
       :latlng => [51.52238797921441, -0.08366235665359283],
       :popup => "Hello!"
     }
  ]
)

If you want to override the map settings you have set in the initializer, you can also add them to the helper method:

map(:center => {
    :latlng => [51.52238797921441, -0.08366235665359283],
    :zoom => 18
  },
  :tile_layer => "http://{s}.somedomain.com/somepath/{z}/{x}/{y}.png",
  :attribution => "Some other attribution text",
  :max_zoom => 4
)

If you want to have multiple maps on same page , you should add unique container_id in helper method for each map:

map(:container_id => "first_map", :center => {
    :latlng => [51.52238797921441, -0.08366235665359283],
    :zoom => 18
})

map(:container_id => "second_map", :center => {
    :latlng => [51.52238797921441, -0.08366235665359283],
    :zoom => 18
})
