Get Started

Installation

Using react-map-gl requires node >= v4 and react >= 16.3.

npm install --save react-map-gl

Example

import * as React from 'react';
import { useState } from 'react';
import ReactMapGL from 'react-map-gl';

function Map() {
  const [viewport, setViewport] = useState({
    width: 400,
    height: 400,
    latitude: 37.7577,
    longitude: -122.4376,
    zoom: 8
  });

  return (
    <ReactMapGL
      {...viewport}
      onViewportChange={nextViewport => setViewport(nextViewport)}
    />
  );
}

Styling

The current mapbox-gl release requires its stylesheet be included at all times. The marker, popup and navigation components in react-map-gl also need the stylesheet to work properly.

You may add the stylesheet to the head of your page:

<!-- index.html -->
<link href='https://api.tiles.mapbox.com/mapbox-gl-js/v<YOUR_MAPBOX_VERSION>/mapbox-gl.css' rel='stylesheet' />

Find out your mapbox version by running yarn list mapbox-gl or npm ls mapbox-gl.

Or embed it in your app by using - browserify-css with Browserify or - css-loader with Webpack:

// app.js
import 'mapbox-gl/dist/mapbox-gl.css';

Using with Browserify, Webpack, and other JavaScript Bundlers

  • browserify - react-map-gl is extensively tested with browserify and works without configuration.

  • webpack - Most of the provided react-map-gl examples use webpack. Look at the get started examples folder for minimalist templates.

  • create-react-app - react-map-gl is compatible with create-react-app.

  • create-react-app-typescript - react-map-gl is compatible with create-react-app-typescript. You can see an example here.

There's many other ready-to-run examples you can take a look at if you need more inspiration.

Using with a mapbox-gl Fork

Install your choice of fork along with react-map-gl, for example:

npm i react-map-gl maplibre-gl

In your bundler's configuration, set the forked library to replace any reference from mapbox-gl. This can be done in Webpack with something like:

// webpack.config.js
module.export = {
  // ...
  resolve: {
    alias: {
      'mapbox-gl': 'maplibre-gl'
    }
  }
}

In rollup:

// rollup.config.js
import alias from '@rollup/plugin-alias';

module.exports = {
  // ...
  plugins: [
    alias({
      entries: [
        { find: 'mapbox-gl', replacement: 'maplibre-gl' },
      ]
    })
  ]
};
