Animating Google Maps Markers
babycheeses posted a topic in GSAPI'm trying to make an animated map of sorts by having markers show up on google maps at a certain time/after a certain amount of time has passed. I've only found one other post on how to move a marker, but can't seem to "select" the marker to change the opacity. I've got it working with setTimeout, but I would like the ability to scrub the animation, which seems to be quite difficult/slow without GS given the number of points I'm trying to animate. I've included a codepen with 2 points. https://codepen.io/azhao/pen/rgvXJq The only thing I can think of doing is to create all the markers with initial opacity of 0 and then change the opacity of them in the order that I want. Due to the crowdedness, I want the markers to "disappear" after a couple of seconds. (in the example, I thought it'd be easier to start with opacity at 1 and fade to 0 to show that the markers do show up correctly). Is there an easier way to debug this? ie some way to tell if I'm even selecting the google maps marker with greensock? I'm not sure how to start to figure out what's not working
Plugins: should I write my own?
thunderkid posted a topic in GSAPHi, I'm wondering whether I should be writing my own plugins for GSAP. I have two cases where this might be nice: 1) First I'm animating richmarkers on google maps. To animate latitude and longitude I must call setPosition. I can do this ok with onUpdate, but then if I'm also animating color, say, it starts to get a bit cumbersome. 2) In another project I'm using fabric.js. I notice you have a plugin for easel.js but not fabric. So for cases like this should I write my own plugin to make the syntax nicer? If so, are there any docs or examples on doing this? Thanks.
