Leaflet Plugins

While Leaflet is meant to be as lightweight as possible, and focuses on a core set of features, an easy way to extend its functionality is to use third-party plugins. Thanks to the awesome community behind Leaflet, there are literally hundreds of nice plugins to choose from.

Tile & image layers

The following plugins allow loading different maps and provide functionality to tile and image layers.

Develop your own

Leaflet keeps it simple. If you can think of a feature that is not required by all Leaflet users, and you can write the JavaScript code in a reusable way, you’ve got yourself a Leaflet plugin already.

There are no hard requirements on how to create your own plugin, but all developers are encouraged to read the recommendations in the plugin guide.

Once your plugin is ready, you can submit it to this list: just send a pull request with the addition to /docs/plugins.md to our GitHub repository.
