Google Maps widget for address fields in Wagtail

Project description

# wagtailgmaps [![PyPI](](

> Simple Google Maps address formatter and LatLng provider for [Wagtail]( fields.

*Check out [Awesome Wagtail]( for more awesome packages and resources from the Wagtail community.*

![Wagtailgmaps screenshot](./screenshot.png)

## Quickstart

1. Install with `pip install wagtailgmaps`
1. Add `wagtailgmaps` to your `` `INSTALLED_APPS` section.
1. Add some configuration in your `` file:

# Mandatory
WAGTAIL_ADDRESS_MAP_CENTER = 'Wellington, New Zealand' # It must be a properly formatted address

# Optional
WAGTAIL_ADDRESS_MAP_ZOOM = 8 # See for more information.
WAGTAIL_ADDRESS_MAP_LANGUAGE = 'ru' # See for supported languages.

> As of June 22th 2016, Google maps requires an API key. See how to [Get a key]( While you're there, you'll also need to enable the [Geocoding Service](, the [Maps JS API]( and the [Static Map API](

4. Use it:

# myapp/
from django.db import models
from wagtail.wagtailcore.models import Page
from wagtailgmaps.edit_handlers import MapFieldPanel

class MapPage(Page):
# Wagtailgmaps expects a `CharField` (or any other field that renders as a text input)
formatted_address = models.CharField(max_length=255)
latlng_address = models.CharField(max_length=255)

# Use the `MapFieldPanel` just like you would use a `FieldPanel`
content_panels = Page.content_panels + [
MapFieldPanel('latlng_address', latlng=True),

# myapp/templates/myapp/map_page.html
<a href="{{ self.formatted_address }}">Open map (Formatted Address)</a>
<a href="{{ self.latlng_address }}">Open map (Lat/Long Address)</a>

## Additional information

### `MapFieldPanel` options

- `heading` - A custom heading in the admin, defaults to "Location"
- `classname` - Add extra css classes to the field
- `latlng` - Field returns a LatLng instead of an address
- `centre` - A custom override for this field
- `zoom` - A custom override for this field

### How the address option works under the hook

If using the address option, the field gets updated according to the [Google Geocoding Service]( each time:

* The map marker gets dragged and dropped into a location (`dragend` JS event).
* Click happens somewhere in the map (`click` JS event).
* Return key is pressed after editing the field (`enterKey` JS event for return key only).

### Troubleshooting

When editing the model from the admin interface the affected field shows up with a map, like the screenshot above. If it doesn't, check your browser console to make sure that there is no error related to your API key.

## Development

### Releases

- Make a new branch for the release of the new version.
- Update the [CHANGELOG](
- Update the version number in `wagtailgmaps/`, following semver.
- Make a PR and squash merge it.
- Back on master with the PR merged, use `make publish` (confirm, and enter your password).
- Finally, go to GitHub and create a release and a tag for the new version.
- Done!
