Hi, how can I pass options for markers into addMarkers method?

OK, I figured out. No worries, @apneadiving

Instead of

<%= gmaps({:last_map => false}) %>

I can add options this way

<%= gmaps("markers" => {"data" =>"[]", "options" => {"randomize" => true, "max_random_distance" => 2, "do_clustering" => true}}, "map_options" => { "provider" => "google", "provider_key" => $GOOGLE_API_KEY, "auto_adjust" => true }, :last_map => false) %>

In which, I used "[]" to fill the data section
