Add some action to your Map apps!

I’ve been experimenting with ways to add small, focused, utility actions to my maps. This could be something like clicking on the map and doing a buffer analysis, or double-click and query some data, and so on, I think you get the idea.

Quick intro to esri-loader

This is a quick, I mean quick intro to the esri-loader. I was shooting for 2 minutes, that turn to 5, ended up around 7. The esri-loader is cool if you are building apps with other build tools like Webpack or one of those cool new cli tools to scaffold your apps. A lot of…


How to be a geodev
