A HTML5 fullscreen plugin for Leaflet.


To provide a button for toggling fullscreen on and off:

// Create a new map with a fullscreen button:
var map = new L.Map('map', {
    fullscreenControl: true,
    // OR
    fullscreenControl: {
        pseudoFullscreen: false // if true, fullscreen to page width and height

// or, add to an existing map:
map.addControl(new L.Control.Fullscreen());

The plugin also adds several methods to L.Map which are always available, even if you choose not to use the fullscreen button:

map.isFullscreen() // Is the map fullscreen?
map.toggleFullscreen() // Either go fullscreen, or cancel the existing fullscreen.

// `fullscreenchange` Event that's fired when entering or exiting fullscreen.
map.on('fullscreenchange', function () {
    if (map.isFullscreen()) {
        console.log('entered fullscreen');
    } else {
        console.log('exited fullscreen');


To change fullscreen control text:

map.addControl(new L.Control.Fullscreen({
    title: {
        'false': 'View Fullscreen',
        'true': 'Exit Fullscreen'

Including via CDN

Leaflet.fullscreen is available through the Mapbox Plugin CDN - just copy this include:

<script src=''></script>
<link href='' rel='stylesheet' />


npm install && make

ProTip You may want to install watch so you can run watch make without needing to execute make on every change.
