8. Ready! Account created and key generated.

Create the Angular application

1. Let's create the application with the Angular base structure using the @angular/cli with the route file and the SCSS style format.

✔ Packages installed successfully.
    Successfully initialized git.

2. Install and configure the Bootstrap CSS framework. Complete steps 2 and 3 of the post Adding the Bootstrap CSS framework to an Angular application.

3. Configure the TomTom key in the src/environments/environment.ts and src/environments/environment.prod.ts files as below.

tomtom: {
  key: 'POQwSkANG2wVgN1qMbook38s5EMkN7pG',
},

4. Install the @tomtom-international/web-sdk-maps library.

npm install @tomtom-international/web-sdk-maps

5. Configure the @tomtom-international/web-sdk-maps library. Change the angular.json file and add the maps.css file as below.

"styles": [
  "node_modules/bootstrap/scss/bootstrap.scss",
  "node_modules/bootstrap-icons/font/bootstrap-icons.css",
  "node_modules/@tomtom-international/web-sdk-maps/dist/maps.css",
  "src/styles.scss"
],

6. Remove the contents of the AppComponent class from the src/app/app.component.ts file. Create the getCurrentPosition and loadMap methods as below.

import { AfterViewInit, Component } from '@angular/core';
import { Observable, Subscriber } from 'rxjs';
import * as tt from '@tomtom-international/web-sdk-maps';

import { environment } from '../environments/environment';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.scss'],
})
export class AppComponent implements AfterViewInit {

  map: any;

  constructor() {
  }

  public ngAfterViewInit(): void {
    this.loadMap();
  }

  private getCurrentPosition(): any {
    return new Observable((observer: Subscriber<any>) => {
      if (navigator.geolocation) {
        navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition((position: any) => {
          observer.next({
            latitude: position.coords.latitude,
            longitude: position.coords.longitude,
          });
          observer.complete();
        });
      } else {
        observer.error();
      }
    });
  }

  private loadMap(): void {
    this.map = tt.map({
      key: environment.tomtom.key,
      container: 'map',
    });

    this.map.addControl(new tt.FullscreenControl());
    this.map.addControl(new tt.NavigationControl());

    this.getCurrentPosition()
    .subscribe((position: any) => {
      this.map.flyTo({
        center: {
          lat: position.latitude,
          lng: position.longitude,
        },
        zoom: 13,
      });

      const popup = new tt.Popup({ anchor: 'bottom', offset: { bottom: [0, -40] } }).setHTML('Angular TomTom');
  
      var marker = new tt.Marker().setLngLat({
        lat: 37.7749,
        lng: -122.4194,
      }).addTo(this.map);
      marker.setPopup(popup).togglePopup();
    });
  }

}

7. Remove the contents of the src/app/app.component.html file. Add the map div tag as below.

<div class="container-fluid py-3">
  <h1>Angular TomTom</h1>

  <div id="map" class="map"></div>
</div>

8. Add the style in the src/app/app.component.scss file as below.

#map {
  height: 400px;
  width: 100%;
  max-width: 600px;
}

9. Run the application with the command below.

npm start

> [email protected] start
> ng serve

✔ Browser application bundle generation complete.

✔ Compiled successfully.

Note:

  • If the error Module '"/node_modules/@types/geojson/index"' has no default export. Did you mean to use 'import { GeoJSON } from "/node_modules/@types/geojson/index"' instead? occurs, add the setting allowSyntheticDefaultImports in the tsconfig.json file as below.
{
  "compilerOptions": {
    "allowSyntheticDefaultImports": true
  }
}

10. Ready! Access the URL http://localhost:4200/ and check if the application is working. See the application working on GitHub Pages and Stackblitz.
