leaflet Leaflet is "a modern, lightweight open-source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps" and here I show how my Stacey method of linking articles to a map works with Leaflet (refer to the previous posts for the Stacey end of things).

Implementation consists of a Leaflet Template and a geo Partial file, with a link in the Article/Post code - my link looks like:

<a href="/leaflet/?@psn,14" title="view location on Leaflet OpenStreetMap"><img src="/images/opengeo.png" alt="" /></a>

Template - leaflet.html

Remember to delete [remove] from the code - it's there to stop Stacey doing it's stuff even when written as code.

There is a zoom function in the popup window, but you can pass whatever you like through.
