In addition to all the fantastic work they’ve done with Drupal modules in the past, the guys over at Development Seed have been working on MapBox for a while. These guys have shifted their impressive creative machine in the direction of mapping and come up with a fantastic product. Add the folks they’re partnering with and DevSeed is pretty much a bunch of awesome do-gooders. Definitely go take a look at their demo projects.
Given that most of my development servers are running CentOS and I generally use Fedora, I spent some trying to get TileMill up and running on CentOS. This is still in process and I’m sorting a couple things out.
Roughly following: Kris Arnold to get Mapnik, one of TileMill’s dependencies installed.
Install or check Python 2.6
yum info python26 vi ~/.bashrc ; alias python='python26'
yum install freetype-devel libtool-ltdl-devel libpng-devel libtiff-devel libjpeg-devel gcc-c++ libicu-devel bzip2-devel libxml2-devel
Annoyingly, the install documentation is in an html file, so download the regular zip to check that out here. You can download the latest from here then do:
./configure Linux make sudo make install
download 1.46 from here
./bootstrap.sh ./bjam install sudo cp -rfv stage/lib/* /usr/lib/ sudo cp -rf boost /usr/include sudo vi /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local.conf sudo /sbin/ldconfig
Update sqlite and sqlite-devel to >3.6
# sudo python26 scons/scons.py configure # sudo python26 scons/scons.py install
export GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true git clone https://github.com/joyent/node.git cd node git checkout v0.4.12 ./configure make sudo make install
