Embed JS

Boldmapper's Embed JavaScript module allows you to add (or embed) maps to a web page. The following is a guide of the module's usage and features.

Basic Example

The following assumes you have a map with an ID of abcd-1234-defg-5678-hijk. To embed this map on a webpage, you can do the following:
  • Add an element to the page's HTML where you want the map to appear:
<div id="my-store-locator"></div>
  • Add a script to the page's <head> or just before the closing </body> tag to initialize and mount the embed:
<script type="module">
import Embed from 'https://boldmapper.com/embed.js';
const embed = new Embed({ mapId: 'abcd-1234-defg-5678-hijk' });
embed.mount('#my-store-locator');
</script>
The above script imports the Embed module, creates a new embed instance with the given map ID, and mounts it on the target element. The result is a Boldmapper map being rendered at the target element when the page is loaded.

Options

The Embed instance can take the following parameters when being initialized:
Option
Description
Default
mapId
Required. The ID of the map you wish to render. This should be a UUID string and can be found on your map's Settings page.
N/A

Methods

Embed instances have the following methods available to them:

mount()

Mounts the embed to the specified element. The argument can be either a DOM element or a CSS selector string (the first matching element will be used).
// Mounting via CSS selector string
embed.mount('#some-element');
// Mounting via DOM Element
embed.mount(document.body.lastChild);

unmount()

Removes the embed from the page, restoring the mount element to it's pre-mount state. This can be useful when an explicit teardown is required (e.g. when rendering maps on pages with non-standard navigation handling, like Single Page Apps or Turbolinks).
