Design, style, and share
Creating and sharing great looking mapping apps just got easier!
Just in time for the Developer Summit, there’s a new app template in town called Styler. If you look in the ArcGIS configurable apps gallery you’ll find one for styling web maps (Map Styler) and one for styling scenes (Scene Styler).
What is Styler?
Here’s an example:
http://www.arcgis.com/apps/Styler/index.html?webscene=default&title=Esri DevSummit 2017&subtitle=For Developers. By Developers.&bgcolor=transparent&lat=33.82501&lon=-116.54115&zoom=14&heading=267&tilt=83
Styler implements Calcite UX and UI design principles, patterns and colors giving you the ability to create a wide variety of user experiences with the same map or scene. It also provides a number of handy mapping features such the ability to display and share the current latitude, longitude and scale of your map, to find places (parks, gas stations, restaurants…) by tapping-and-holding on the map, to present 2D and 3D slide shows, and to show or hide the title bar and panels. Styler is also designed to work well on both web and mobile devices.
Here are a few examples of styled maps. Give them a try and try customizing some of the url params. e.g. title=Al’s Map&bgcolor=red&layout=bottom&widgetslayout=bottom-left…
Get the code!
In the future, I’ll be posting more details about what you can do with Styler, but in the meantime, happy map app styling!
Oh ya, I’ll be talking about this at the DevSummit too if want more details!
