Mapbox Studio is the modern alternative to Mapbox Studio Classic: if you're starting out and creating a map today, we recommend starting with Mapbox Studio rather than Mapbox Studio Classic.
Desktop application for vector tile driven map design.
Install latest release
Download the latest release for your platform and run the packaged app.

Mapbox Studio Classic ships with pre-built binaries for common platforms:
- 32 and 64 bit Windows
- 64 bit OS X
- 64 bit Linux
The minimum platforms versions are:
- Windows >= 7
- OS X >= 10.8
- Ubuntu >= 14.04 (Trusty)
- RHEL/Centos >= 7
Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) can be supported by upgrading libstdc++:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test sudo apt-get update -q sudo apt-get install -y libstdc++6
If packages like
node-mapnik fail to install then you are likely running a platform for which no binaries are available. In this case you will need to build these packages from source (Feel free to create a github issue to ask for help).
You can do this like:
npm install --build-from-source
The docs offer both a step-by-step guide to creating your first projects in Mapbox Studio Classic and detailed information about styling and creating vector sources.
