This is the fourth blog entry in my series ‘Leaflet-Diary’. In my last post Chapter 2: Projections and then some, I talked projections, easy button support and upgrading leaflet to 0.7.7. This one is about phase III, making the Leaflet package extensible and allowing for users to integrate many more Leaflet plugins.
- Some bugs were squashed.
- Leaflet package is now extensible. You can write your own R package that augment core leaflet functionality by incorporating various plugins.
- A new R package leaflet.extras has been created to extend the leaflet package.
Making Leaflet extensible
I created a new R package leaflet.extras where I have integrated more plugins and continue to do so. This will be the future direction for the leaflet package, the core package will only see bug fixes, performance improvements etc. and any new plugins will be developed in external packages.
End of Phase 3
This marks the end of Phase 3 in my leaflet development. If you like what you see or have comments/questions/critiques don’t hesitate to contact me via Twitter or open an issue over at Github. In the mean time happy mapping.
