After a bit of a break from my blog, I have returned. There is a lot on the plate for work in 2015, and I need to get out ahead of that development. 2015 will be the year that we begin to introduce Leaflet to our maps, so it’s time that I returned to my exploration of Leaflet and its plugins.
Over the last couple of weeks, I did several things to improve Exploring Spatial. I converted the site to a single page web application, I reworked that HTML/CSS on my site to utilize more real-estate, and I made everything available on GitHub.
Bigger is Better
The entire site is now available at GitHub: https://github.com/smitchell/exploringspatial. Not only can you find all the demo code there, but theoretically you can contribute your own code to the demos too.
One Page Fits All
My biggest change was to convert the entire website to be a single page app using Backbone.js. I did this for no other reason than this is the direction we are heading at work. At first, I resisted making this change because it makes the demos a little harder to follow if you are not familiar with Backbone.js.
Enjoy the new site. You can expect a lot of activity on the Leaflet demos in 2015.
