I am trying to display the map given by Google Maps API using python gmaps library on streamlit. I know that there are other ways to plot maps like folium or with st.map but I would like to use directly the google maps one. Notebook example:
The map object is of type gmaps.figure.Figure so it’s not a standard one. Does anyone have any idea on how to display it?
Hi @AelxRossi, welcome to the Streamlit community!
From a quick reading of the gmaps source code, it looks like they might be doing this via a ipywidgets display. If so, that’s not currently able to be embedded within Streamlit.
Hey @randyzwitch thanks for your reply
In this discussion about pywidgets I found this solution that seems to do the job.
ipywidgets streamlit discussion
from ipywidgets import embed
snippet = embed.embed_snippet(views=map)
html = embed.html_template.format(title="", snippet=snippet)
import streamlit.components.v1 as components
Perfect, thanks for surfacing that!
