Plugins – Leaflet – a JavaScript library for interactive maps

While Leaflet is meant to be as lightweight as possible, and focuses on a core set of features, an easy way to extend its functionality is to use third-party plugins. Thanks to the awesome community behind Leaflet, there are literally hundreds of nice plugins to choose from. The following plugins allow loading different maps and provide functionality to tile and image layers. The following plugins provide new ways of loading overlay data (GIS vector data): points, lines and polygons. These plugins provide new markers or news ways of converting abstract data into images in your screen. Leaflet users versed in GIS also known these as symbolizers. The following plugins enable users to interact with overlay data: edit geometries, select areas or features, interact with the time dimension, search features and display information about them. Most data is two-dimensional (latitude and longitude), but some data has more dimensions (altitude and/or time). The following plugins help users navigate these extra dimensions. Display two maps at once. One of them might be a different size and zoom level, usable as a minimap to aid with navigation. The following plugins perform several sorts of geoprocessing (mathematical and topological operations on points, lines and polygons). External services that transform an address or the name of a place into latitude and longitude (or vice versa). Ease your development integrating Leaflet into a development framework or automating some of the javascript/CSS work for complex applications. Leaflet keeps it simple. If you can think of a feature that is not required by all of Leaflet users, and you can write the javascript code in a reusable way, you’ve got yourself a Leaflet plugin already. There are no hard requirements on how to create your own plugin, but all developers are encouraged to read the recommendations in the plugin guide. Once your plugin is ready, you can submit it to this list: just send a pull request with the addition to Leaflet repo’s gh-pages branch (plugins.md file). Source.
