About This Episode

Learn how to implement Google Maps and the Google Places Autocomplete API in Rails compatible with Turbolinks using StimulusJS


Google Maps has notoriously not played well with Rails and Turbolinks. Using Stimulus.js, we can make it work seamlessly using custom events in Javascript to tie the two together allowing us to add maps and location search autocomplete from Google Maps extremely easily.
