Should We Create an Arcade Expression Functions Plugin or Documentation of Equivalent Functions?

See original GitHub issue

Although I was initially skeptical, I have fallen in love with Arcade Expressions. I was wondering if there was desire and/or support to connect Arcade Expressions into the Esri-Leaflet ecosystem? I know I have written a function that is the equivalent of IsEmpty for my Leaflet apps. Below are some initial thoughts of what this could potentially look like. I would love for this community to chime in.

  • Create an esri-leaflet-arcade plugin that allows you to write Arcade Expressions in esri-leaflet. This is probably not realistic, but I wanted to include it anyway
  • Create a section on the documentation site or repo wiki that provides reference to JavaScript functions that can be used in esri-leaflet that are equivalent to Arcade Expressions.
  • Other great ideas this community comes up with

In web maps, I’ve only used Arcade for pop-up content. So that’s the angle I’m coming from. But I think in whatever ways we could support Arcade functionality would be ideal.

Thanks for great work you all do. Currently finding myself in position where I’d like to utilize a L.esri.featureLayer with symbology published in the service using ‘valueExpression’ written in Arcade. Have found the valueExpression is often only option for setting up more advanced attribute-based transparency/symbology. Would this potential enhancement apply to L.esri.dynamicMapLayer usage as well?
