Is it possible to 'fly to location' in Leaflet in the same way as this Mapbox GL example?
map.flyTo() is available in Leaflet 1.0.
However the parameters are different from those in the example. See http://leafletjs.com/reference-1.0.0.html#map-flyto
flyTo(<LatLng> latlng, <Number> zoom?, <Zoom/pan options> options?)
flyTo([13.87992, 45.9791], 12)
Yes, flyTo() function in Leaflet 1.0 (in Beta at the moment). Demo http://regionbound.com/leaflet-fly-demo
