Ruby on Rails Using GoogleMaps with Rails Show addresses on a google map in the profile view


On the profile view, show the profile fields of a user or group in a list as well as the address fields on a google map.

- # app/views/profiles/show.html.haml
%h1 Contact Information
  = render @profile_fields
.google_map{data: address_fields: @address_fields.to_json }

The appropriate @profile_fields and @address_fields are set in the controller:

# app/controllers/profiles_controller.rb
class ProfilesController < ApplicationController
  def show
    # ...
    @profile_fields = @user_or_group.profile_fields
    @address_fields = @profile_fields.where(type: 'ProfileFields::Address')

Initialize the map, place the markers, set the zoom and other map settings with javascript.
