MAU pricing questions
2 projects | /r/mapbox | 2 Dec 2022
1) I would like to use the Maps SDKs for Mobile pricing, so 25k MAU(monthly active users) free tier. If I have understood correctly I have to use the Mapbox Sdk for iOS and Android, in my case the flutter port(https://github.com/flutter-mapbox-gl/maps). So I think flutter_map(leaflet based) is not compatible with this type of pricing, right? But I was wondering if the open source maplibre(https://github.com/m0nac0/flutter-maplibre-gl) is ok for this type of pricing.

Max zoom levels?
2 projects | /r/mapbox | 26 Mar 2022
Yes, I'm using the Flutter MapBox GL project (that uses the native implementation, which is mostly written in C++). I'm using vector tiles, and it's getting down to 1.35cm/pixel for iOS and .12cm/pixel for Android at my latitude; I believe this is level 22 for iOS and 25.5 for Android.
Flutter for a map focused app?
2 projects | /r/FlutterDev | 15 Mar 2021
For Google Maps this seems to be the official package by Google, this one seems to be the official Mapbox package. Mapbox already states that their package only exposes a small subset of API methods in its flutter SDK, how is it with Google Maps? How limited are the Packages in terms of

> too bad it doesn't come with some code
Mapbox changed the license of their code last year I think to a proprietary one. https://github.com/mapbox/mapbox-gl-js/blob/main/LICENSE.txt
It requires a mapbox user license with billing enabled to use this code, let alone make modifications. But the source is viewable on github.
MapLibre GL is a free and open-source fork of mapbox-gl-JS

> Mapbox gl-js version 2.0 or higher (“Mapbox Web SDK”) must be used according to the Mapbox Terms of Service. This license allows developers with a current active Mapbox account to use and modify the Mapbox Web SDK. Developers may modify the Mapbox Web SDK code so long as the modifications do not change or interfere with marked portions of the code related to billing, accounting, and anonymized data collection. The Mapbox Web SDK only sends anonymized usage data, which Mapbox uses for fixing bugs and errors, accounting, and generating aggregated anonymized statistics. This license terminates automatically if a user no longer has an active Mapbox account.
Seems their client code does some things related to "billing, accounting, and anonymized data collection" and they don't want programmers to disable or modify that code.
Is that right? Anyone who has followed this have more information? I haven't used mapbox in a few years but I think it's great technology.6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Apr 2021
The software stopped being open source from v2 onwards. The new licence makes it merely shared source.
This GitHub issue where this change is announced provides a number of more in-depth explanations why this is a bad thing for most users of the software: https://github.com/mapbox/mapbox-gl-js/issues/10162
