Building / Installing
You can build a concatenated and minified version of Places Editor with the command
make. Node.js is required for this.
Places Editor will be built to the
dist directory. This directory is designed to be self-contained; you should be able to copy it into the public directory of your web server to deploy it. This functionality will be improved in future releases, since we require Windows compatibility (no sym links) for our web server.
Initial development of iD was made possible by a grant of the Knight Foundation.
