What is the new embed function

The development of the new Openrouteservice Map-Client in VueJS is in the final phase and now has a new function with which Routes and isochrones and other functions from openrouteservice (ORS) can be easily integrated into other websites using copy & paste. In this way, webmasters and editors can easily embed these ORS results into their website using the new ORS client.

Using the embed function:
Any feature visualized on the new map client such as a route, isochrones or a location can be used as embedded content. The code to be used for embedding is automatically generated on the card client itself. To access the code in the sidebar, click the share option. The iframe code is available. All you have to do is click on the code and it will be copied to your clipboard.

Access to the embed code via the "Share" button:
