Mapbox Map Upgrades

Hello, would love some additions to the current Mapbox map integration

  1. Custom Styles from Mapbox studio
  2. Popup windows on hover or click
  3. Ability to use Mapbox animation, fly-to, 3D features and show users location.
  4. When other data is clicked ability to specify location

The map is a wonderful feature of Retool but with these updates I think could be that much better.
Thank you so much :relaxed:

Hey @lukejamison and welcome to the community! Interesting ideas here - any chance you could share a bit more about what you’re doing in Retool with Mapbox?

Hello @justin thank you and thanks for getting back to me. I’m building an app to manage our local deliveries and a big part of that is seeing the delivery locations on a map. The current map is pretty great but the addition of the features I listed would be super helpful to know what map marker belongs with what job and things of that nature. Hope this helps and let me know if you have any further questions

@lukejamison cool, thanks for sharing. @dominic is actually working on a few related upgrades as we speak - we’ll jump back in this thread when there’s something ready to check out :slight_smile:

@justin thanks for getting back to me with those updates I’m really looking forward to what @dominic can add. Thank you so much and hope to hear from you soon.

@justin just had a quick question, are there any plans to be able to display a encoded polyline on the Mapbox Map?

Hey @lukejamison! Not on the roadmap currently but we can take a look :slight_smile:

Hello @justin thanks for looking at that. Just wondering if there are any status updates with the Mapbox component?

Hey @lukejamison just wanted to let you know that you can now do #2 and #4 in Retool!

Specifically, we added a way to run a query “onHover” so you can run a JS query that opens up a modal.

We also added a way to select a point from a JS query, e.g. map1.selectPoint(yourPoint)

Let us know if you have any questions about that!

@dominicwhyte thank you for the reply and that information. Those are some super nice new features so thank you. I will try them and let you know how it goes. Also are there any plans to add some more basic map styles from Mapbox such as Streets, Satellite or Hybrid?

Hey @lukejamison it’s on our roadmap but I don’t have an exact timeline for you at the moment unfortunately. For now your best bet is probably to use a custom component - I’ll let you know once that changes
