GSoC Week #3: Creating a views filter plugin for search_api_location_views module(First part)

If you remember in the previous post, I submitted tests for location data type, and location input plugin i.e raw input plugin. Although there are three location input plugins available i.e raw, geocoder and map. But as I discussed with my mentor and came across a solution that to release a working search_api_location module with only raw input plugin at the end of this month. Because geocoder module is not stable yet.

Right now, there are some alpha modules existing but these modules need some serious investment for them to become production ready.
