Lazy loading google

See original GitHub issue


When I try to use the directive, I get a Global google var missing. Did you forget to include the places API script?

Of course, because I’m not loading google at all. I use the angular-google-maps.js to lazy load the google maps api like!/api/GoogleMapApi

How to use this lazy loading for this directive ??

PS: after that you can also add async="true" to the script of the google maps API and you are good to go 😉
