Bower

This module is available as bower package, install it with this command:

bower install angularjs-google-places

or

Demo

See this plunker

Usage

  • Include the Google Maps JS library in your app
  • Add ngGPlaces as a dependency
  • Inject ngGPlacesAPI as a dependency to your controller or other service
  • Invoke the nearbySearch method and pass in a latitude/longitude
  • Invoke the placeDetails method and pass in a Google Places reference id

Example

var myApp = angular.module('myApp',['ngGPlaces']);

// optional if you want to modify defaults
myApp.config(function(ngGPlacesAPIProvider){
  ngGPlacesAPIProvider.setDefaults({
    radius:500
  });
});

myApp.controller('mainCtrl',function($scope,ngGPlacesAPI){
  $scope.details = ngGPlacesAPI.placeDetails({reference:"really_long_reference_id"}).then(
    function (data) {
      return data;
    });

  $scope.data = ngGPlacesAPI.nearbySearch({latitude:-33.8665433, longitude:151.1956316}).then(
    function(data){
      return data;
    });
});

Further Customizations

You can override any default option below via setDefaults on the ngGPlacesAPIProvider Or by passing that property to the nearbySearch or placeDetails method

var defaults = {
    radius: 1000,
    sensor: false,
    latitude: null,
    longitude: null,
    types: ['food'],
    map: null,
    elem: null,
    nearbySearchKeys: ['name', 'reference', 'vicinity'],
    placeDetailsKeys: ['formatted_address', 'formatted_phone_number',
        'reference', 'website'
    ],
    nearbySearchErr: 'Unable to find nearby places',
    placeDetailsErr: 'Unable to find place details',
};
