Sure, maybe.  It depends what you mean by all those words.  "connect" to 
an external javascript library?  Don't you mean "load" an external 
javascript library?  And how is making calls to a library different than 
making calls to any random function?

I don't know a lot about Google Maps, but I do know that Divmod's most 
recent product (Blendix) uses Google Maps to display locations.

You can see this in action on my blendix page:


or view the source code:


Have a look at the 'initializeMap' method to see an example of 
integration between Athena and Google Maps.

Please note that this isn't open source; we haven't released the code 
anywhere yet (although this part is JavaScript, so you could of course 
have just done 'view source' and figured out that link for yourself).
