Hacker Beach Map (Phu Quoc)
This is an interactive map app, showing points of interest to participants of Hacker Beach 12/13 on Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam. You can launch it from:
It works well on both desktop browsers and smartphones, so you can take it with you when exploring the island.
You can contribute new places by forking the repo, editing
then doing a pull request. The format is a subset of
GeoJSON, but it's really just a few attributes.
The icons are sourced from http://mapicons.nicolasmollet.com and all 700+ icons
are included. For the
icon property, just browse their directory and use the
lowercase name you see on the detail page of an icon.
You can also contribute improvements to the app itself if you like (it's really simple), or use the code for your own purposes.
You can also install the app in various formats from 5apps or add it to your home screen to install on iOS:
If you find this helpful and want to buy me a beer, you can flattr the app on 5apps (same link as above), or send some Bitcoin to the following wallet:
We had some ideas for new features already. Hack away, if you like:
- Add the possibility of sharing your being at a place from the popup (create a URL that opens the app with that place selected)
- Create some helper that makes it easy to contribute a new place from the current location
- Add some kind of URI array to the properties and render buttons that link to e.g. Wikipedia, Foursquare, etc.
- Add a tile layer switching control. See https://gist.github.com/1804938 for example configs
