Do you think we are missing an alternative of MapBBCodeShare or a related project?
In order to reduce load on the main share.mapbbcode.org website, cloning the service is encouraged. Requirements are few:
- Apache with mod_rewrite or nginx with php-fpm
- PHP 5.2 or newer
- MySQL 5
- A separate domain (or subdomain) name
To install, copy all files (except
README.md) to a designated directory, modify
config.php according to your setup, and open
http://domain.name/initdb. If you see a map with a yellow message saying tables were created, you're good to go. Set
NEED_INIT_DB in the config to
false, then check that saving and signing in work.
For caching to work, you need a
cache directory with writing rights.
At the moment MapBBCode Share can import 11 file types and export 10. Writing a plugin for a new file format is easy: see examples in
formats directory. Those are loaded automatically, you won't have to modify other scripts. Keep in mind this is not a universal convertor: GPSBabel is. This is not a GPS trace storage, and traces are simplified: we already have GPSies for full GPX downloads, elevation and speed profiles. MapBBCode Share goals are simple and outlined in the first section, and supported formats list should be kept short.
Writing the service would be much harder it it weren't for those libraries:
- MapBBCode (WTFPL)
- Leaflet (BSD 2-clause)
- Leaflet.draw (MIT)
- Bing.js (BSD 2-clause)
- LightOpenID (MIT)
- OpenID Selector (BSD 3-clause)
- Simplify.js (BSD 2-clause)
- Simplify.php (unknown license)
All files that did not come from other libraries are released under WTFPL.
*Note that all licence references and agreements mentioned in the MapBBCodeShare README section above are relevant to that project's source code only.
