This directory contains a simple c++ program demonstrating the Mapnik C++ API. It mimics the python 'rundemo.py' example with a couple exceptions.
If building on unix you can have this program automatically build by configuring Mapnik like:
However, this example code also should be able to be built standalone.
The following notes describe how to do that on various operating systems.
- Mapnik library development headers
mapnik-configon unix and
On OS X and Linux you also need
On windows, additional dependencies to build are:
- MSVS 2010 with C++ compiler
- Python 2.x
- gyp: https://code.google.com/p/gyp | https://github.com/springmeyer/hello-gyp
mapnik-config.bat should come with your Mapnik installation.
First confirm it is on your path:
mapnik-config # should give usage
To install gyp, which is pure python do:
svn checkout http://gyp.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ gyp cd gyp python setup.py install
If you do not have svn installed you can grab gyp from:
https://github.com/TooTallNate/node-gyp/archive/master.zip # unzip and extract the 'gyp' subfolder then do cd gyp python setup.py install
Building the demo
Then to run do:
./rundemo `mapnik-config --prefix`
On OS X you can also create an xcode project:
gyp rundemo.gyp --depth=. -f xcode --generator-output=./build/ xcodebuild -project ./build/rundemo.xcodeproj ./build/out/Release/rundemo `mapnik-config --prefix`
First you need to build the visual studio solution with gyp:
C:\Python27\python.exe c:\Python27\Scripts\gyp rundemo.gyp --depth=. -f msvs -G msvs_version=2010
Then you can compile with
msbuild rundemo.sln /p:Configuration="Release" /p:Platform=Win32
Then run it!
for /f %i in ('mapnik-config --prefix') do set MAPNIK_PREFIX=%i Release\rundemo.exe %MAPNIK_PREFIX%
