Usage

  4. Add MapCountdown
    1. With module bundler
    2. In browser

Install

yarn install map-countdown

or

npm install map-countdown

Prepare route points

To draw polygons on Google Maps we need to pass an array of route points. To do that we can import .tcx file and use route-parser CLI to parse it.

  1. First ensure map-countdown is installed. Next you have to download workout in .tcx format. The most popular sport tracking app are supported:
    1. Endomondo - Instructions
    2. Polar - Instructions
    3. Garmin - Instructions
  2. After download open a terminal in your project's directory and run:
route-importer ~/Downloads/training-file.tcx routePoints.js

route-importer will parse TCX file and save it with given name.

Prepare Google Maps API Key

Google Maps need an api key for working. If you don't have a key already, don't worry. You can create new one below: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/embed/get-api-key Replace 'GOOGLE_API_KEY' from chosen snippet below with your api key.

Add MapCountdown

With module bundler

import MapCountdown from 'map-countdown'
import './../path/to/routePoints'

new Countdown({
    selector: '#countdown',
    key: 'GOOGLE_API_KEY',
    meta: '2019-07-13 11:30:00'
})

In browser

You have to include routePoints.js along with MapCountdown, which load those points automatically. Next, add container for countdown (ie. #countdown).

<html>
<head>
    <title>MapCountdown Example</title>
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/[email protected]/dist/bundle.js"></script>
    <script src="routePoints.js"></script>
    <script>
        window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () {
            new MapCountdown({
                selector: '#countdown',
                key: 'GOOGLE_API_KEY',
                meta: '2019-07-13 11:30:00',
            })
        })
    </script>
    <body>

        <div id="countdown"></div>

    </body>
</html>

jQuery

You can use jQuery, if you will.

<html>
<head>

    <script src="https://unpkg.com/[email protected]/dist/bundle.js"></script>
    <script src="routePoints.js"></script>
    <script>
        $(function () {
            new MapCountdown({
                selector: '#countdown',
                key: 'GOOGLE_API_KEY',
                meta: '2019-07-13 11:30:00',
            })
        })
