How to Integrate the Google Maps into React Applications

Google Maps is flexible and powerful enough to handle a wide variety of use cases, and it can provide real value to users of your React app.

There’s a quote from British science-fiction writer Arthur Charles Clarke that goes, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

We might take it for granted, but Google Maps is a modern miracle in many respects. The possibilities it allows for are endless and can provide real value to your business and users. From showing your office location to showing a route a package delivery will take, Google Maps is flexible and powerful enough to handle a wide variety of use cases.

Indeed, there are a number of reasons why you may choose to integrate Google Maps into your React app, and we’ll be taking a look at one of the most popular ones: displaying your business address. You can then use this as a base for other, more complex cases if you desire.

Because of how incredibly powerful and complex Google Maps is, we’ll need the aptly named google-map-react package to help us integrate it into our React app. This package is a component written over a small set of the Google Maps API, and it allows you to render any React component on the Google Map. It is actively maintained and simple enough to use that it is my default go-to for integrating Google Maps in a React project.

Before we start building, however, I feel it would be a good idea to list some reasons why you may want to put Google Maps on your website (or web app):

  • To provide directions to your business address
  • To show a route to an event (i.e., a concert or conference)
  • To provide live updates on a shipped item’s location
  • Showcase interesting places around the world
  • etc…

This is just a small list of features made possible by the Google maps API, and you may have other business requirements. For this guide, we’ll build a contact page that contains a map displaying the address of the business, as this is the most common use case I’ve encountered. The google-map-react team has provided a list of examples you can go through in case you require something a bit more advanced.

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

React Google Login Example

Integrate google login in react apps; This example tutorial will show you step by step how to implement google login in react apps using javascript SDK.

If you want to integrate google login authentication in your react app. So you will not need any react plugin for this. In this tutorial, you will learn how to add a google login button in react app without any react plugin.

Before you can integrate Google Sign-In into your react app, you must create a client ID, which you need to call the sign-in API.

To create a Google API Console project and client ID, go to the APIs & Services dashboard and then follow the following steps:

Step 1: Visit Google Developer Console. And create a new project as following in below picture:

Step 2: you will see the screen looks like, show here you can set your project name as you want.

Step 3: Now you have successfully created a new project. After that, you need to select the created projects on the top menu. Then click on OAuth consent screen and select the given option according to your requirement:

Step 4: when you will be done above. After that automatically appear below given screen. In this screen, you need to fill your website URL, privacy policy URL, etc.

Google Maps Draggable Marker Get Coordinates

In this blog post, you will learn how to create google maps draggable marker using Google Maps Javascript API v3, and when you drag the marker position then get coordinates (latitude and longitude) of that location where you place the marker.

How to make a marker draggable?

To allow users to drag a marker to a different location on the map, set the draggable attribute to true in the marker options.

var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(-25.363882,131.044922);
var mapOptions = {
  zoom: 4,
  center: myLatlng
}
var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), mapOptions);
// Place a draggable marker on the map
var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
    position: myLatlng,
    map: map,
    draggable:true,
    title:"Drag me!"
});

Google's TPU's being primed for the Quantum Jump

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

As the world is gearing towards more automation and AI, the need for quantum computing has also grown exponentially. Quantum computing lies at the intersection of quantum physics and high-end computer technology, and in more than one way, hold the key to our AI-driven future.

Quantum computing requires state-of-the-art tools to perform high-end computing. This is where TPUs come in handy. TPUs or Tensor Processing Units are custom-built ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to execute machine learning tasks efficiently. TPUs are specific hardware developed by Google for neural network machine learning, specially customised to Google’s Machine Learning software, Tensorflow.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute. It powers Google products like Google Search, Gmail, Google Photos and Google Cloud AI APIs.
