Hi all, new to Statamic but hoping it can have a big impact on the way we work.
So I have a project I have to move into Statamic. In this project is a list of locations (300 or so) which all have latitude and longitude data in them.
As part of the website there is a google map with these planted on but the ability to search by the closest to your location.
So you could use Laravel and JSON database fields as so:
Location::selectRow("*", "(3959 * acos(cos(radians(json_unquote(json_extract(geocode, '$.\"lat\"')))) * cos(radians(" . $lat . ")) * cos(radians(" . $lng . ") - radians(json_unquote(json_extract(address, '$.\"lng\"')))) + sin(radians(json_unquote(json_extract(address, '$."lat\"')))) * sin(radians(" . $lat . ")))) AS distance") ->orderBy('distance') ->get();
Obviously now without having a database I would need to interrogate the filesystem and do this programatically.
Using Statamic how can I load up the data and then sort it in such a way?
Do I use a Laravel approach of getting the items into a collection and then mapping them etc?
Just concerned if you had a few thousand records this could be pretty slow.
I just need some pointers in the right direction on how I can move forward with this.
