    > 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.

  • Appwrite
