Geocoding and autocomplete with Google Maps and jQuery UI

A simple demo showing how to use the jQuery UI autocomplete widget in conjunction with Google Maps geocoding service.

See it in action here: rjshade.com/projects/gmaps-autocomplete/

Use with Rails form helpers

I've had success using this with the SimpleForm gem:

= simple_form_for(@post) do |f|
    = f.input :address, :input_html =>{:id => 'gmaps-input-address'}, :placeholder => 'Start typing a place name...'
