Explore Newsbeast Labs' standardized CartoDB templates for interactive maps with hover states and infowindows using Leaflet.js and Underscore.js on GitHub.
As some of you may already know Newsweek / The Daily Beast has been using CartoDB for some time now and as such today's blog post comes from Michael Keller of Newsbeast labs. We'd also like to take the opportunity thank Michael for his amazing contributions to the CartoDB community. Thanks!
I have been reusing code from former projects and so it was about time I standardized them into reusable templates with Leaflet.js. I released them on Github this week.
I made three categories: basic map with hover states hover states + hover infowindow and all of that with templated infowindows using Underscore.js.
In each of these categories you'll see a template for a point map a polygon map and a map with both points and polygons.
