MapKit plugin for iOS and Android

Uses Apple Maps on iOS and Google Maps v2 on Android

Currently only works/tested on Android and iOS. Requires Cordova 3.0+ (will not work on earlier versions without modifications).

Cordova Map 1

Cordova Map 2

Cordova Map 3

Cordova Map 4

Android specific

You need a Google Maps Android v2 API KEY from google and you need to specify it when you install the plugin

You can install this plugin with plugman

plugman install --platform android --project android-mapkit-example/ --plugin /path/to/MapKit --variable API_KEY="YOUR_API_KEY_FROM_GOOGLE"

or with cordova CLI

cordova -d plugin add /path/to/MapKit --variable API_KEY="YOUR_API_KEY_FROM_GOOGLE"

(/path/to/MapKit could be the git repository https://github.com/imhotep/MapKit)

Follow the instructions that are displayed after you install the plugin.

Sample code

var app = {
    showMap: function() {
        var pins = [
        {
            lat: 49.28115,
            lon: -123.10450,
            title: "A Cool Title",
            snippet: "A Really Cool Snippet",
            icon: mapKit.iconColors.HUE_ROSE
        },
        {
            lat: 49.27503,
            lon: -123.12138,
            title: "A Cool Title, with no Snippet",
            icon: {
              type: "asset",
              resource: "www/img/logo.png", //an image in the asset directory
              pinColor: mapKit.iconColors.HUE_VIOLET //iOS only
            }
        },
        {
            lat: 49.28286,
            lon: -123.11891,
            title: "Awesome Title",
            snippet: "Awesome Snippet",
            icon: mapKit.iconColors.HUE_GREEN
        }];
        var error = function() {
          console.log('error');
        };
        var success = function() {
          mapKit.addMapPins(pins, function() {
                                      console.log('adMapPins success');
                                  },
                                  function() { console.log('error'); });
        };
        mapKit.showMap(success, error);
    },
    hideMap: function() {
        var success = function() {
          console.log('Map hidden');
        };
        var error = function() {
          console.log('error');
        };
        mapKit.hideMap(success, error);
    },
    clearMapPins: function() {
        var success = function() {
          console.log('Map Pins cleared!');
        };
        var error = function() {
          console.log('error');
        };
        mapKit.clearMapPins(success, error);
    },
    changeMapType: function() {
        var success = function() {
          console.log('Map Type Changed');
        };
        var error = function() {
          console.log('error');
        };
        mapKit.changeMapType(mapKit.mapType.MAP_TYPE_SATELLITE, success, error);
    }
}

Configuration

You can override the options by passing a suitable options object as arguments to showMap

var options = {
    height: 460,      // height of the map (width is always full size for now)
    diameter: 1000,   // unused for now
    atBottom: true,   // bottom or top of the webview
    lat: 49.281468,   // initial camera position latitude
    lon: -123.104446  // initial camera position latitude
};

Sample App

Checkout the sample/ application as a boilerplate!
