Gmaps proxy allows you to easily add an embedded iframe with a GoogleMap image, when it is not possible to use the native embedded map or API due to local area restrictions. (like in Israel when the map rights belong to a private company so Google cannot use it).
+gem install gmaps_proxy+ from gemcutter.
simply call a new class with an address you want to focus on:
+map = GmapsProxy.new(“Fort Lauderdale”)+
+ map.pull +
and it will return a full HTML page with the map, generally i think the best usage is to point an iFrame in your app to an action that simply returns that HTML.
It does not allow you to
do anything but look :)
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
