LeafLet GeoCoder Plugin

What is LeafLet GeoCoder Plugin?

that adds support for address lookup to Leaflet with dropdown list capabilities and loading icon feedback. This Plugin works in conjunction with LeafLet library for the Yii 2 framework.

Important The libraries used on this plugin have been modified from the original plugin source. So, if you wish to modify the plugin, remember that you cannot update it from its original source.


The preferred way to install this extension is through composer.

Either run

composer require 2amigos/yii2-leaflet-geocoder-plugin:~1.0

or add the following to the require section of your application's composer.json file:

"2amigos/yii2-leaflet-geocoder-plugin" : "~1.0"

Usage example

There are four services that you can use, even though we have implemented only three:

  • Nominatim
  • Bing
  • MapQuest

Anybody will to help integrate more services, is very welcome :)

use dosamigos\leaflet\layers\TileLayer;
use dosamigos\leaflet\LeafLet;
use dosamigos\leaflet\types\LatLng;
use backend\extensions\leaflet\ServiceNominatim;
use backend\extensions\leaflet\GeoCoder;

// lets use nominating service
$nominatim = new ServiceNominatim();

// create geocoder plugin and attach the service
$geoCoderPlugin = new GeoCoder([
    'service' => $nominatim,
    'clientOptions' => [
        // we could leave it to allocate a marker automatically
        // but I want to have some fun
        'showMarker' => false

// add a marker to center
$marker = new Marker([
    'name' => 'geoMarker',
    'latLng' => $center,
    'clientOptions' => ['draggable' => true], // draggable marker
    'clientEvents' => [
        'dragend' => 'function(e){
            console.log(e.target._latlng.lat, e.target._latlng.lng);

// configure the tile layer
$tileLayer = new TileLayer([
    'urlTemplate' => 'http://otile{s}.mqcdn.com/tiles/1.0.0/map/{z}/{x}/{y}.jpeg',
    'clientOptions' => [
        'attribution' => 'Tiles Courtesy of <a href="http://www.mapquest.com/" target="_blank">MapQuest</a> ' .
            '<img src="http://developer.mapquest.com/content/osm/mq_logo.png">, ' .
            'Map data &copy; <a href="http://openstreetmap.org">OpenStreetMap</a> contributors, ' .
            '<a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/">CC-BY-SA</a>',
        'subdomains' => '1234'

// initialize our leafLet component
$leafLet = new LeafLet([
    'name' => 'geoMap',
    'tileLayer' => $tileLayer,
    'center' => $center,
    'zoom' => 10,
    'clientEvents' => [
        // I added an event to ease the collection of new position
        'geocoder_showresult' => 'function(e){
            // set markers position

// add the marker

// install the plugin

// run the widget (you can also use dosamigos\leaflet\widgets\Map::widget([...]))
echo $leafLet->widget();
