Experimental project

This is a sandbox project, which contains experimental code for developer use only.

Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be

This module uses the location API to figure out nodes (or users, or whatever) that are... you guessed it... close to you. The block does a call to the browsers' navigation.geolocation object (if it exists) and returns the location entries closest to the given coordinates. If the browser doesn't support geolocation, the user may enter an address, the address is reverse geocoded using gmap module and then proximate nodes are returned just as smoothly as Karen Carpenter sang those infamous words so very long ago.

This module integrates with GMap. If you create a View with GMap display and call the map "close2u", Close2u adds the ability to click the markers and display the nodes in a Display Suite "marker" build mode.

Eventually, I will bundle the view and context with the module.
