Using arbitrary Leaflet plugins with Leaflet for R

Using arbitrary Leaflet JS plugins with Leaflet for R

The Leaflet JS mapping library has lots of plugins available. The Leaflet package for R provides direct support for some, but far from all, of these plugins, by providing R functions for invoking the plugins.

If you as an R user find yourself wanting to use a Leaflet plugin that isn't directly supported in the R package, you can use the technique shown here to load the plugin yourself and invoke it using JS code.

library(leaflet)
library(htmltools)
library(htmlwidgets)
# This tells htmlwidgets about our plugin name, version, and
# where to find the script. (There's also a stylesheet argument
# if the plugin comes with CSS files.)
esriPlugin <- htmlDependency("leaflet.esri", "1.0.3",
src = c(href = "https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/leaflet.esri/1.0.3/"),
script = "esri-leaflet.js"
)
# A function that takes a plugin htmlDependency object and adds
# it to the map. This ensures that however or whenever the map
# gets rendered, the plugin will be loaded into the browser.
registerPlugin <- function(map, plugin) {
map$dependencies <- c(map$dependencies, list(plugin))
map
}
leaflet() %>% setView(-122.23, 37.75, zoom = 10) %>%
# Register ESRI plugin on this map instance
registerPlugin(esriPlugin) %>%
# Add your custom JS logic here. The `this` keyword
# refers to the Leaflet (JS) map object.
onRender("function(el, x) {
L.esri.basemapLayer('Topographic').addTo(this);
}")
# This example shows the ability to pass extra R data to onRender.
# At the time of this writing it requires a custom build of htmlwidgets:
# devtools::install_github("ramnathv/htmlwidgets@joe/feature/onrender-data")
#
# Track the progress of this functionality at
# https://github.com/ramnathv/htmlwidgets/pull/202
library(leaflet)
library(htmltools)

heatPlugin <- htmlDependency("Leaflet.heat", "99.99.99",
src = c(href = "http://leaflet.github.io/Leaflet.heat/dist/"),

@satishregonda & @klupido, we have found out that using a externally hosted javascript file may not always work. It is best if you try your respective examples by downloading the plugin javascript (and CSS and image files if any) locally.

Then instead of src = c(href = "https:/..."),, do src = normalizePath(<path to directory where the plugin files are downloaded>),

I can't seem to get the leaflet.defaultextent plugin to work as well even though there is no error. Please assist.

leafletPlugin <- htmlDependency("leaflet.defaultextent", "0.0.3",
                                src = normalizePath("www/Leaflet.defaultextent-master"),

Hello, thank you for this tip it seems to be very useful. Unfortunately, I have not managed to make the L.control.mousePosition works with this method within a shiny app. Whenever the plugin works if we launch the leaflet by itself (outside the shiny app). The onRender function seems to be the cause of the dysfunction.

Here there is a reproducible example of my code (you just have to load the .js and .css files locally, doesn’t work with the link (https://github.com/ardhi/Leaflet.MousePosition/tree/master/src)):

rm(list=ls(all=TRUE))
library(shiny)
library(leaflet)
library(sp)
library(htmltools)
library(htmlwidgets)

path <- “YourPath”

shape <- Polygon(data.frame(lon = c(-5,-7,-6), lat = c(47, 47, 52)))
shape <-Polygons(list(shape), ID = 1)
shape <- SpatialPolygons(list(shape), proj4string = CRS("+proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs"))
shape <- SpatialPolygonsDataFrame(shape, data.frame(ID= 1))

mouse_plug <- htmlDependency("Leaflet.MousePosition", "0",
  src = normalizePath(path),
  script = "L.Control.MousePosition.js",
  stylesheet = "L.Control.MousePosition.css"
)
registerPlugin <- function(map, plugin) {
  map$dependencies <- c(map$dependencies, list(plugin))
  map
}
ui <- fluidPage(
  leafletOutput("map")

)

server <- function(input, output, session) {
	output$map <- renderLeaflet({
		leaflet() %>%
			addPolygons(data = shape, group = "Fond de carte", color = "black", weight = 0.5, fillColor = rgb(238,197,135, maxColorValue = 255), opacity = 1) %>%  
			addLayersControl(
				overlayGroups = "triangle",
				options = layersControlOptions(autoZIndex = TRUE)
			)%>%
			registerPlugin(mouse_plug) %>%
			onRender("function(el, x) {
				 L.control.mousePosition().addTo(this);}"
			)
		  
	})
	
}

I am sorry but I do not know anything about JS code, I am just a R user and maybe it is obvious but I am totally stuck with that and I really need this plugin for my work.

I would be very greatful if you can help me !

Thank you

OK I'm sorry I didn't used the right keywords for my search, I felt on that: rstudio/shiny#1389
But I think I don't well understand the solution. I tried to install different versions of htlmlwidgets (included the development version) but it still doesn't work.

Problem solved: I have just had to reboot R after uninstalling the old version of htmlwidgets and then reinstall the 0.8 version with the fixed 237 issue.

Sorry for the trouble

Like everyone else, I'm also having problems adapting the example. My question is this: what's the best way to debug problems? All I know is that it's not working for me, but no error messages are reported. I tried opening the map in the browser and inspecting but nothing appears on the console. Suggestions?

Another question: I'm trying to pass an icon to a marker. Using a URL it works file. But when I try to grab the icon locally from disk I get a blue box with a question mark. I'm presuming that it can't find the icon. So what is the "working" directory for the javascript that's run in OnRender?

@rickyars

One more thing for others looking for help with this. You can't use forEach in your inside OnRender. I think this has to do with the fact that this has special meaning in forEach - I'm not a javascript programmer so that's about the extent of my knowledge - and since this is the map they don't play nice together. Convert your forEach to a for-loop.

I am trying to use the SideBySide plugin, however without any luck at the moment. I tried the suggestion of downloading the file and this answer here. Below what I am trying to run (using chrome under fedora 27). I can see the first layer but not the handle to compare the two.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

This gist is really helpful and on point and exactly what I was looking for. I tried using the method to use the "Leaflet playback" plugin.

My code looks like this:

# Draw a line from startPoint to Endpoint on the map
                    leafletProxy(mapId = "map") %>%
                        onRender(
                            "function(el, x, data) {
                                // Initialize playback
                                var playback = new L.Playback(this, data, onPlaybackTimeChange);
                                console.log('Inside leaflet playback');
                            };
                            
                            // A callback so timeline is set after changing playback time
                            function onPlaybackTimeChange (ms) {
                                //timeline.setCustomTime(new Date(ms));
                            };", data = geojson_ends
                        )

I register the plugin with the first call to leaflet where I create the map. Two functions are created inside the onRender as L.PLayback needs a callback function onPalybackTimeChange. The leafletproxy is just used for updating the plot. As such I don't think this is working. No error, just no change in behavior.

  • Is there a way to debug this? I tried putting a console.log to see it gets printed, no luck.
  • Is there a way I can use "Developer tools" to inspect the code in the the browser? If yes, which file should I look for? Apparently, shiny creates a bunch of files.
  • Any other hints/comments?

This is really helpful information. We are trying implement the 'leaflet-measure' plugin but it simply does not render properly (renders without any icons being displayed). This post seems like a promising solution, but on trial and error, it fails to load any plugins that are of type leaflet-control. Dunno if this is the correct place to post, but I would really appreciate some help to rectify the issue.
Here's my code to use the leaflet-control type plugins using this method.

`library(leaflet)
library(htmltools)
library(htmlwidgets)

LeafletMeasure <- htmlDependency("leaflet-measure","3.1.0",
src = c(href="https://github.com/ljigis/leaflet-measure/src"),
script="leaflet-measure.js",
stylesheet = "https://github.com/ljigis/leaflet-measure/scss/leaflet-measure.scss")

registerPlugin <- function(map, plugin) {
map$dependencies <- c(map$dependencies, list(plugin))
map
}

leaflet() %>% addTiles() %>%
setView(lng = 12, lat = 50, zoom = 4) %>%
registerPlugin(LeafletMeasure) %>%
onRender("
function(el, x) {
measureControl.addTo(this);}")`

The plugin has a scss that is in a different folder from the standard src folder. I have tried referencing the file through the Github repository as well as local copy.

Wow, sorry, I didn't know there were so many messages posted here over the years. @Jigar-S, leaflet-measure is already bundled with the leaflet R package, just do leaflet() %>% addMeasure() for example.

For the rest of you, I'd focus on the following for debugging:

  1. Are my JS/CSS resources being properly attached? (BTW, you can't use .scss or .less files from htmlDependency directly, they have to be compiled to .css first for the browser to understand them.) You can use Chrome Developer Tools to see if there are any errors in the Console tab about JS and CSS URLs not being downloaded, and look in the Elements tab to see if the proper JS/CSS links are in the <head> of the document.
  2. Am I getting any JS errors? Again, use the Chrome Developer Tools' Console tab to see if there are errors. If there are, you need to fix those first.
  3. If the previous steps pass, or you have trouble figuring out the cause of the errors, then try the JS Debugger. One easy way is to add the statement debugger; to the start of your onRender function's JS function. Then, if you load the page with Chrome Developer Tools enabled, the JS debugger should pause just inside your JS function. With the debugger paused, you can examine the values of this, el, x, etc. to see if everything matches your expectations.

If you have continued problems, feel free to file an issue on the rstudio/leaflet repository, or drop by https://community.rstudio.com/c/shiny.

Sharing our successful integration of one JS plugin for tile-layer opacity.
Shiny app code is here. The js/css files have to be downloaded before execution.
The bulk of the work was to find the Leaflet JS 'hook-up' objects, which are not documented.

Great work! do you know how you would do something like this with a map that is already constructed with mapview?

I would like to make the resulting map's legend say:

Places
|-> names
|-> village
Other
|-> Changed Name

install.packages("mapview")
install.packages("dplyr")
install.packages("magrittr")
library(mapview)
library(dplyr)
library(magrittr)

names = breweries %>%
select(brewery)

village = breweries %>%
select(village)

Complicated Name_layer = breweries %>%
select(number.of.types)

mapview(names, legend = F) +
mapview(village, legend = F) +
mapview(Complicated Name_layer, legend = F)

Thank you so much!!

@nash1119 - why not just paste the value inside the JS code string:

library(leaflet)
library(htmltools)
library(htmlwidgets)
beautifyPlugin <- htmlDependency( "Beautify", "1.0.9",
                                 src = c(href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/beautifymarker@1.0.9/"),
                                 script = "leaflet-beautify-marker-icon.min.js",
                                 stylesheet = "leaflet-beautify-marker-icon.min.css"
)
fontawesomePlugin <- htmlDependency( "fontawesome", "4.5.0",
                                    src = c(href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.5.0/css/"),
                                    stylesheet = "font-awesome.min.css"
)
registerPlugin <- function(map, plugin) {
  map$dependencies <- c(map$dependencies, list(plugin))
  map
}
myIcon <- 'leaf'
leaflet() %>% setView(-122.23, 37.75, zoom = 10) %>% addTiles()%>%
 registerPlugin(fontawesomePlugin) %>% 
 registerPlugin(beautifyPlugin) %>%
 onRender(paste0("function(el, x) {

@rickyars @Bignoozer @chintanp or anyone, did you ever find a solution to why this does not seem to work with leafletProxy()? I am currently having this issue. Thanks!

@nash1119 @rickyars @Bignoozer @chintanp please take a look at the question below:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52846472/leaflet-plugin-and-leafletproxy-with-polylinedecorator-as-example

It worked for my case as a workaround. You need to anticipate what is coming by creating a function associated to an event listener inside onRender, and call this directly on leaflet, not leafletProxy.

Maybe @jcheng5 could have some idea on why the main approach described in this gist doesn't work well with leafletProxy.

Hello,
some of you have experience about integration of Leaflet.LayerTreePlugin with R Shiny

library(htmltools)
library(htmlwidgets)
library(dplyr)

layerTreePlugin <- htmltools::htmlDependency(
  "Leaflet.LayerTreePlugin", "1.0.0",
  src = "./www/js/",
  script = "leaflet-layer-tree-control.js"
)

registerPlugin <- function(map, plugin) {
  map$dependencies <- c(map$dependencies, list(plugin))
  map
}

leaflet() %>% addTiles() %>%
  registerPlugin(layerTreePlugin) %>%
  onRender("function(el, x) {
  function buildContentFromLayer(layer) {
		var content = '<table>';
		var properties = layer.feature.properties;
		for (var i in properties) {
			content += '<tr><td>' + i + '</td><td>' + properties[i] + '</td></tr>';
		}
		content += '</table>';
		return content;
	}
  
	// Icons
	var greenIcon = L.icon({
		iconUrl: 'https://leafletjs.com/examples/custom-icons/leaf-green.png',
