react-google-geocoder gives you a text input that allows input validation and geo-location of an address via the Google Geo Location API.

If there are multiple results returned, they are displayed as a list and one can be selected. Once a unique address is located, the component will call a callback with all of the available address information.

See the demo


Install using NPM:

npm install react-google-geocoder --save

You need to get a Google API credential that has GeoCoding enabled. See for information on how to get a key.

Note on Credential

For local development with an npm server, for some reason this setup requires a "server" key instead of a credential that is restricted by referrer. If you get errors about needing server credentials without referrer restrictions, generate a new server credential.
