Google place photos api setup failure

Post by Mark7294305 »

Hello Support
I have tried to setup the Google place photos api as a rest service on the JQM appery platform by following the instructions on their website https://developers.google.com/places/.... I tried to use their example

https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/...

but this fails when I hit the test button after I add my api key. However it works when I paste the link to a normal browser. Can you confirm if the Google place photos api works on the appery or not? If it does work please could you me the steps on how to get it working.

Thanks in advance

The app (client) doesn't run in Appery.io. It runs in the browser/WebView. You can use any JavaScript library, including Google Place Photos. You need to debug the app and see where exactly it fails to work properly.

Hi Mark - you will need to check Google documentation and how it works and after that implement this approach with Appery.io. Also could you clarify what you have tried and what exactly does not work? Have you debugged your implementation in the app, what are you getting in the browser console?

Hi Illya
Thank you for your reply. Ok this is what I've done so far

  1. I went to the website https://developers.google.com/places/...
    2.I copied the example they gave

    https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/...

  2. I created a new rest service and pasted the above link to the URL section.

  3. Please see the screen shot of the results Image Image Image

Hello Mark,

This is a binary image file, which you can use in the Appery.io application in the image component. Just set that URL to the attribute "src" of that image component

Hi Mark,

Here is a JS code which you can use on any event (like page show or button click, etc..) to assign url (which returns an image) to image component on the page.

pre

//Where "imageComponentName" is your image component name.
Apperyio("imageComponentName").attr("src", "http://www.sunhome.ru/UsersGallery/wallpapers/41/9100645.jpg");

/pre

Note: you need to change here image component name and url.

Regards.
