Features

Dependency

Notes

Deprication notices for Google Places API Web Service that effects Premium data (Zagat), types parameter, id and reference fields.

  • Nearby Search - types parameter depricated, use parameter type (string)
  • Place Details - the reference is now deprecated in favor of placeid (placeid originally used in this package)
  • Place Add - still uses types parameter as per service documentation
  • Place Autocomplete - still uses types parameter as per service documentation

Installation

Issue following command in console:

composer require alexpechkarev/google-maps:1.0.9

Alternatively edit composer.json by adding following line and run composer update

"require": { 
		....,
		"alexpechkarev/google-maps":"1.0.9",
	
	},

Configuration

Register package service provider and facade in 'config/app.php'

'providers' => [
    ...
    GoogleMaps\ServiceProvider\GoogleMapsServiceProvider::class,
]

'aliases' => [
    ...
    'GoogleMaps' => GoogleMaps\Facade\GoogleMapsFacade::class,
]

Publish configuration file using php artisan vendor:publish --tag=googlemaps --force or simply copy package configuration file and paste into config/googlemaps.php

Open configuration file config/googlemaps.php and add your service key

    /*
    |----------------------------------
    | Service Keys
    |------------------------------------
    */
    
    'key'       => 'ADD YOUR SERVICE KEY HERE',

If you like to use different keys for any of the services, you can overwrite master API Key by specifying it in the service array for selected web service.

Usage

Here is an example of making request to Geocoding API:

$response = \GoogleMaps::load('geocoding')
		->setParam (['address' =>'santa cruz'])
 		->get();

By default, where appropriate, output parameter set to JSON. Don't forget to decode JSON string into PHP variable. See Processing Response for more details on parsing returning output.

Required parameters can be specified as an array of key:value pairs:

$response = \GoogleMaps::load('geocoding')
		->setParam ([
		    'address'    =>'santa cruz',
         	    'components' => [
                     	'administrative_area'  => 'TX',
                     	'country'              => 'US',
                      ]

                ])
                ->get();

Alternatively parameters can be set using setParamByKey() method. For deeply nested array use "dot" notation as per example below.

$endpoint = \GoogleMaps::load('geocoding')
   ->setParamByKey('address', 'santa cruz')
   ->setParamByKey('components.administrative_area', 'TX') //return $this
    ... 

Another example showing request to Places API Place Add service:

$response = \GoogleMaps::load('placeadd')
                ->setParam([
                   'location' => [
                        'lat'  => -33.8669710,
                        'lng'  => 151.1958750
                      ],
                   'accuracy'           => 0,
                   "name"               =>  "Google Shoes!",
                   "address"            => "48 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont, NSW 2009, Australia",
                   "types"              => ["shoe_store"],
                   "website"            => "http://www.google.com.au/",
                   "language"           => "en-AU",
                   "phone_number"       =>  "(02) 9374 4000"                       
                          ])
                  ->get();	

Available methods


load( $serviceName ) - load web service by name

Returns reference to it's self.


\GoogleMaps::load('geocoding') 
...

Accepts two parameters:

  • key - body parameter name
  • value - body parameter value

Deeply nested array can use 'dot' notation to assign value.
Returns reference to it's self.
