iBrightKite

Description

This plugin grabs your bright location and displays it in a sidebar widget.

The choice at the moment is between a textual location, or a full-blown Google map. The map can be customised to a particular size or zoom, to suit your blog.

The map uses Google’s static map API, so is converted to an image, no javascript required. For a Google map, you will need an API key, which can be obtained here: create a Google Maps API key

Your location can now be cached, to save reloading from BrightKite every time.

Screenshots
