Getting Started

To get started with Gatere Maps locally, follow these steps:

  1. Clone the repository:
  2. Install the dependencies:

    cd g_maps_clone
    pnpm install
  3. Register for a Maps API via Google Cloud

    • Create a .env.local / .env file in the root directory of the project.

    • Register for a Maps JavaScript API key via the Google Cloud platform and enable the GeoCoding API. You can follow the official documentation to obtain the API key.

    • Open the .env.local file and add the following line:


      Replace YOUR_API_KEY with the actual API key you obtained from Google Cloud. By setting up the .env.local file with the appropriate API key, the application will be able to access the geocoding API and provide accurate property locations.

  4. Start the development server:

    pnpm run dev
  5. Open your browser and visit specified local host port to view the app eg. http://localhost:5173
