Fargo Script to Insert a Google Map as Background Image in Noteblog

Tweet This Post

The following script lets you add a Google Map to your Fargo noteblog.

With your cursor on the date headline, choose the script, and enter the following in the dialog box, in this order: Latitude, Longitude, and mapType (each separated by commas). If Latitude is South or Longitude is West, precede the value with a minus sign. The mapTypes are roadmap, satellite, hybrid, and terrain. For example: "41.0967,-73.5522,hybrid" is what I'm using for this post.

Although the attribute mapZoom is supported in Fargo, I am not including it in this script.

I don't check for errors in entry, so if there are problems, please check the instructions first. If you are still getting errors, please contact me.

Disclaimer: Dave Winer has not even written up documentation for this feature, so use "as is."

Visit the Fargo scripting page in the docs to learn how to install this script, or watch this video.

Here is the OPML for the script.
