Map Box - Map Creation and Tiling
Posted 27 April 2011 - 05:04 PM
I installed Virtual Box on my machine and ran an Ubuntu 10.10 as a VM. Installed TileMill as per the instructions on their home page and it runs perfectly!!!

Now is there a way to use their mapbox format with openlayers instead of just using straight files? Handling one file is much more efficient. It'd be nice not to need to configure a web server.
This will definitely need a web server.
You could of course, export your map as a PNG from TileMill un-tiled, and then port that into Zoomify or Zoomit...
With TileMill, you export mbtiles (at various zoom levels), then with a tileserver, like TileStream for instance, that can be fed into a web-browser that uses OpenLayers.
Like if you install TileStream from that site, it displays all your data with OpenLayers as an example.

That's what I figured. I was hoping a simple js might be able to get at the tiles in the database. But it's still a pretty sweet option.
Hey redbeard: Yep, you'd have to export MBTiles. You can turn an MBTiles file into plain image files with node-mbtiles, but it isn't recommended - a map's worth of tiles is unwieldy.
Nowadays there are many options for hosting MBTiles files - MapBox hosting, or any of 10 or so open-source servers: https://github.com/m...Implementations
