React Components for the Google Maps JavaScript API

MIT License

This is a TypeScript / JavaScript library to integrate the Maps JavaScript API into your React application. It comes with a collection of React components to create maps, markers and infowindows, and a set of hooks to use some of the Maps JavaScript API Services and Libraries.


This library is available on npm as

npm install


yarn add

(PowerShell users: since @ has a special meaning in PowerShell, the package name has to be quoted)


Import the APIProvider and wrap it around all components that should have access to the Maps JavaScript API. Any component within the context of the APIProvider can use the hooks and components provided by this library.

To render a simple map, add a Map component inside the APIProvider. Within the Map component, you can then add further components like Marker, AdvancedMarker, or InfoWindow to render content on the map.

For more advanced use-cases you can even add your own components to the map that make use of google.maps.OverlayView or google.maps.WebGlOverlayView.

import {APIProvider, Map, Marker} from '';

function App() {
  const position = {lat: 53.54992, lng: 10.00678};

  return (
    <APIProvider apiKey={'YOUR API KEY HERE'}>
      <Map defaultCenter={position} defaultZoom={10}>
        <Marker position={position} />

export default App;

Please see our documentation or examples for more in-depth information about this library.

Using other libraries of the Maps JavaScript API

Besides rendering maps, the Maps JavaScript API has a lot of additional libraries for things like geocoding, routing, the Places API, Street View, and a lot more.

These libraries are not loaded by default, which is why this module provides the useMapsLibrary() hook to handle dynamic loading of additional libraries.

For example, if you just want to use the google.maps.geocoding.Geocoder class in a component and you don't even need a map, it can be implemented like this:

import {useMap, useMapsLibrary} from '';

const MyComponent = () => {
  // useMapsLibrary loads the geocoding library, it might initially return `null`
  // if the library hasn't been loaded. Once loaded, it will return the library
  // object as it would be returned by `await google.maps.importLibrary()`
  const geocodingLib = useMapsLibrary('geocoding');
  const geocoder = useMemo(
    () => geocodingLib && new geocodingLib.Geocoder(),

  useEffect(() => {
    if (!geocoder) return;

    // now you can use `geocoder.geocode(...)` here
  }, [geocoder]);

  return <></>;

const App = () => {
  return (
    <APIProvider apiKey={'YOUR API KEY HERE'}>
      <MyComponent />
