Esri-leaflet 1.0 is out

So as of right now, LeafletJs is at 1.0 beta1, which for anyone that has been using Leaflet for a while, is a big deal. In all honesty, everyone already knew the current release was stable as-is, but to get to a 1.0 release, even in beta is a big deal. So in anticipation of…


Quick Tip: Fun with Electron

Have you tried out the Atom editor? It has some nice features as far as editors go, however one of the most interesting things about is the fact that it uses atom-shell, which is now called Electron. Electron is a built on node.js. What does that even mean? That means we have transitioned from JavaScript…


Exploring new Turf

Leaflet.Control, transducers and es6

Hacking away I haven’t hacked away at using Leaflet in a while, but I’m looking at doing some pretty extensive Leaflet.Control development down the line so I needed some practice. I also wanted to play around with Transducer.js which is a JavaScript port of Clojure’s Transducers. To learn more about Transducers, go watch this video…
