Hi guys, I discovered nodebb two weeks ago, here is my first plugin (inspired by youtube-lite and imgbed): https://github.com/jenkin/nodebb-plugin-embed-gmap.
Once activated, it replaces strings such as [map <location>] (where <location> is a generic string) with a link to a Google Map with a pin on <location> (if found).
The plugin provides also an admin page where you can set an API Key for Google Maps Embed API. In this case, the plugin embeds at the end of the post an interactive map for each <location> found.
Comments are appreciated, so I can highlight errors or bad patterns and avoid them in the future... Thanks a lot for this great project!
