The frontend should be available on your server at:
If required, edit
OSRM.config.js to change multiple settings.
By default the frontend uses the project-osrm infrastructure (routing server, data timestamps, url shortener).
This should be changed to your locations.
Note that our url shortener only accepts urls pointing to the official project-osrm website. Though, it is possible to either switch to another shortening service or disable the url shortener entirely if required.
masterbranch will always point to the latest released version of the frontend.
developbranch should always point to a working version with new features and bugfixes (think of it as a nightly-build).
- Other branches contain various work in progress.
Please use the OSRM-Project bug tracker (4) for submitting any bug reports or feature requests.
If you like to contribute, simply fork the project and start coding. It is best practice to create a new branch (from the current develop branch!) with a descriptive name for your contributions. When you are done, send a pull request from that branch. With this workflow, each pull request is isolated and can be easily merged.
The frontend has been tested with Firefox 2.0+, Internet Explorer 8+ and Chrome 18+. Certain visuals like rounded corners or moving boxes only show up in more recent browser versions. The frontend will not work with Internet Explorer 6 or 7. As of Leaflet 0.6.x, dragging the map is no longer fully functional in very old browsers, such as Firefox 2.x. This will not be fixed.
