So I have come to the conclusion that I am becoming overloaded with things to do. And adjustments must be made. It’s possible that I missed a single phone call due to over-scheduling, and it cost me $15,000.

Jeez that’s a cheesy photo. And so is using the word cheesy. But I did get it from Google Images “Free for reuse” filter so no one will come after me.

I haven’t always been a professional. And it’s as difficult to pick up some habits as it is to break bad ones. …


Layers vs Markers

If you need info on some other React MapBox implementation, then I would look into some of my other articles, because there is a decent chance I have covered it.

Problems:

In one of my earlier apps and article’s I had come across an issue with the performance aspect of one of my projects that I am looking to rectify in this blog post. At the time I didn’t know what the solution was, but I have since dipped my toes a little deeper into the world of “Layers” and have found a solution to my performance issue.


Displaying Polygons

It’s good to be back! Back with another React MapBox article. It has been way too long and I have been insanely busy, so hopefully I can help some people out.

Polygons

Polygons are a great way to visualize an area. I use them all the time at work, they…


Well I guess I gave that away.

Let me paint a picture for you. You have a job that you have to commute to every day, it’s not too bad of a commute, only 40 minutes per day or so. You have your route, and you’ve been going on this route for a year because one of your buddies told you that this was the fastest way.

In a whole years worth of commute, you have spent 173 hours driving per year. Then your other friend comes to you and tells you that there is a shorter way to get…


I am kind of on a CLI/Terminal binge these recent weeks. My last article was on Iterm2 and Oh-My-Zsh, which was encouraging developers to upgrade from the coach of terminals, to the first class of terminals. If you haven’t done this, you are seriously missing out.

When I was setting up my Iterm2 and Oh-My-Zsh, I noticed a Spotify plugin that I was curious about. So I did a bit of research and found out a script was made so you can interact with your desktop Spotify via Terminal.

It was made by this guy:

Terminal:

Iterm2 and Oh My Zsh

Taking a bit of a detour from some of my recent articles about React Mapbox. I just haven’t quite had the time to keep up with learning something new this week, but hopefully next week! But we’ll see.

Todays article is going to be on a new tool that one of my coworkers Riki introduced me too. I had never heard of this somehow, but it seems to be pretty popular, and honestly, a no brainer implementation.

As programmers we are using our terminal all the time. And since starting a developer type role, I…


Getting started with Geocoder

Geocoding

We are going to cover an extremely powerful tool. It’s about as easy to get going as the others, but the power of this is astounding. Here is what the internet tells us geocoding is:

“Geocoding is the computational process of transforming a physical address description to a location on the Earth’s surface. Reverse geocoding, on the other hand, converts geographic coordinates to a description of a location, usually the name of a place or an addressable location.” — Wikipedia

If you have ever used Google Maps, Bing Maps, or any other mapping software, you have likely participated in geocoding…


Getting started with NavigationControl, zoom, and compass

NavigationControl

React MapBox has everything for you to make a map with the standard features. A huge part of the user experience with maps is the ability to navigate the map optimally. You notice that Google Maps and most maps generally have buttons to zoom in and out, as well as…

Using popup components with marker

First (You Know The Drill):

Below are the links to the previous pieces in this series. They have done pretty well — check them out if you haven’t already, there should be some valuable info in there!

Goal: Set Up Some Popups for Our Markers

We’re going to programmatically place popups for each Marker. This result is this:
