MapCraft (Alpha) – Google Maps Plugin


** Alpha version. Under active development **

MapCraft is our take on what a Google Maps plugin would look like if it was built in 2020 with cutting edge web technologies, such as Vue.js.

Currently the plugin provides a basic set of features, such as styling the map, placing markers and store locator. It is usable in production, however it’s still early in development and major changes might and most likely will occur. Having said that, please feel free to download it, and give us feedback!

Currently we have our development piepeline fully set up for rapid development, such as servers, repositories, end to end testing, website, documentation, build processes, etc.


This plugin provides 1 block.

There are a few ways to install MapCraft™ in your WordPress website.

From the Dashboard

The easiest way is directly from your Dashboard.

  1. From your Dashboard go to Plugins -> Add New.
  2. In the search box on the right enter “MapCraft”.
  3. Find the plugin and click Install Now.


If you wish to manually install the plugin:

  1. Download the plugin from this page.
  2. Upload and extract the ZIP in /wp-content/plugins/ or from your Dashboard go to Plugins -> Add New -> Upload Plugin and upload the zip.


Where is all the functionality?

This plugin is under active development and we are currently setting everything up for the future, and publishing version 0.1.0 on the official WP repository is one of the first steps. Once all infrastructure is in place, we will be adding new features on a regular basis.

Can I use this plugin in production?

You can, but please keep in mind that we are early in production and there could be drastic changes and/or bugs. However it will be awesome if you have a look at how we are approaching the Editor and give us some feedback!

What features do you have planned?

Soon we will publish a detailed Roadmap on, so stay tuned!

Is this going to be a free plugin?

Eventually we will add a Pro version. The free version will have some limitations, but we will make sure the pro vs. free feature set and the pricing model is as fair as possible.
