OpenStreet Map in FSMK Website


#1

I just noticed today that, the fsmk.in website, that we are still using google maps.

Can we move to OpenStreet Map for the same ?


#2

Yeah. I really get annoyed when FSMK does these things in the name of convenience, user friendliness, or some other lame excuse.


#3

This happen quite often when people feel they are already ‘converted’ and they only have to ‘preach’. The compromises help reach a wider audience, but creates a weaker community who will easily give up freedom when they get a convenient alternative. It is really a choice.


#4

Yes, we know. We will update the same.


#5

Please let me know if I can help here. As I looked into source, saw this coffee script that has code for googlemaps - https://github.com/fsmk/fsmk-site-theme/blob/master/theme-builder/app/assets/javascripts/scripts/fsmk_app.coffee
Is this where we should change or is there any other code?


#6

I completely forgot to ask you for help! :slight_smile: I’m not completely sure about it either. Will let you know.

@yogi This function creates map.

I’ll change the map to OSM ASAP


#8

That would be great!


#9

The sites updated with open street map. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the change.
