Drupal 8 custom Google Maps and automatic geocoding with Composer, Drupal Console and Drush
The scope of this article is to illustrate the responsibilities of several tools and techniques used in the Drupal ecosystem (Composer, Drupal Console, Drush, Configuration management) to achieve quickly a simple custom Google Maps use case: an Address field will be defined on a content type. We want the address to be geocoded automatically for each node on save to display a Google Map. The display of the map will be achieved by a custom module to allow further extension.
