Color-coding locations on the supercharge.info map between V1, V2 and V3 superchargers (versus just a red dot)

Hi community, and specifically @corywright,

I wanted to make a suggestion and/or feature request for the visual map on supercharge.info:

Instead of having to manually click on each red supercharger dot to determine if it's a V3, V2, etc. could you change the color coding so that each kW rating had its own distinct color (i.e. V1 are yellow dots, V2 are orange, V3 are red)? It would be a cool feature, I think, and would help visualize what parts of the country are currently being expanded with V3 vs being held up by V2 still.

If the answer isn't a clear yes, or it's a hard no, I might consider making a map like this myself. Would be a cool resume booster, though I'm not too proficient with frontend stuff. Just had a thought!

Hi @tesrella,

Development of supercharge.info has been somewhat stagnant for the last year or so, but we are planning to work more on it soon.

There is a 2+ year old thread for this feature request on forum.supercharge.info, where there was a lot of debate about icons and colors:

Request: New Markers to Specify 72 kW (Urban), 150 kW (V2), or 250 kW (V3) Superchargers

I believe @Pluto worked on this a while back. If he still has a branch available with these changes then we may be able to get this deployed soon.

Also, all of the source code for supercharge.info is available on Github.

Woah, meaning I can contribute to this as an open-source? Count me in.
