Simplify Yandex Maps Embed With The ddMap jQuery Plugin

ddMap is a lightweight jQuery plugin that allows developers to embed customizable, interactive, responsive Yandex maps into webpages.

Pass in an array of marker data, including the lat/long coordinates and popup content, and ddMap will plot them on the map. It automatically scales the map to fit all your markers if you have more than one.

You can customize markers with custom content, set the map controls like zoom buttons, and pass through any other Yandex map options. The plugin handles the map initialization so you don't have to write that boilerplate code.

How to use it:

1. Include jQuery library and the ddMap's script on the page.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/jQuery.ddMap.min.js"></script>

2. Create an empty DIV container to hold your Yandex map.

<div class="myMap"></div>

3. Initialize the Yandex map and specify marker details as follows.

  markers: [
      latLng: [
      content: '<p>jQueryScript.Net</p>'
      latLng: [
      content: '<p>CSSScript.Com</p>'
    // ...

4. More plugin options to customize the Yandex map.


  // Yandex API Key
  apiKey: '',

  // Default zoom level
  defaultZoom: 15,

  // 'map', 'satellite', or 'hybrid'
  defaultType: 'map',

  // zoom in/out the map with mousewheel
  scrollZoom: false,

  // map offset
  mapCenterOffset: [0, 0],

  // show/hide map controls
  controls: [
    {name: 'zoomControl'},
    {name: 'typeSelector'},
    {name: 'fullscreenControl'},
    {name: 'geolocationControl'},
    {name: 'rulerControl'}

  // Yandex map options
  markerOptions: {},
  mapOptions: {
    suppressMapOpenBlock: true
