If you've ever worked on a website for a business, there's a good chance you've included a map.

A Google Map embed is sufficient for showing a location, but doesn't leave you many customization options.

React Leaflet to the rescue!

In this course, Colby Fayock will guide you through a series of lessons and challenges that will build your map making skills as you build out a web app for a fictional restaurant.

You'll get practice with handling API keys and using React Hooks to implement a custom interactive map complete with metadata and additional overlays.

This course has built-in challenges that you are encouraged to pause and work through, but feel free to just watch.

What you'll learn

  • Using Mapbox to style the map's appearance
  • Store location data in GeoJSON documents
  • Customize map markers & tooltips to display metadata
  • useEffect and useRef React Hooks
  • Dynamic location-based data
  • Event handling

    What did you like about this course?

    Putting things on the map is not just about programming skills, but you need to know about certain terminology and technology to make it happen.

    I liked this course because it

    • did a good introduction to map related technology like geoJSON,
    • pointed out the quirks in leaflet,
    • provided knowledge that I can use right away.
    • provided tools like geojson.io that makes you more productive in mapping.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    This course does a good job of introducing leaflet to a react developer. I wish it wasn't split into so many small videos.

    Great course Colby!

    I am going to be use Leaflet for a project this fall so this was a timely review of the tech. Also based in Gatsby so I will be for sure checking out some of the code in your starter as well!

    Thank-you for the work you put into this!
