Mapbox GL Native

A library for embedding interactive, customizable vector maps into native applications on multiple platforms. It takes stylesheets that conform to the Mapbox Style Specification, applies them to vector tiles that conform to the Mapbox Vector Tile Specification, and renders them using OpenGL. Mapbox GL JS is the WebGL-based counterpart, designed for use on the Web.

The Mapbox GL ecosystem

This repository hosts the cross-platform Mapbox GL Native library, plus convenient SDKs for several platforms. The cross-platform library comes with a GLFW-based demo application for Ubuntu Linux and macOS. The SDKs target the usual languages on their respective platforms:

SDK Languages Build status
Mapbox GL Native C++14 Circle CI build status Coverage Status
Mapbox Maps SDK for Android Java Circle CI build status
Mapbox Maps SDK for iOS Objective-C or Swift Bitrise
Mapbox Maps SDK for macOS Objective-C, Swift, or AppleScript Bitrise
node-mapbox-gl-native Node.js Circle CI build status
Mapbox Qt SDK C++03 Circle CI build status AppVeyor CI build status

Additional Mapbox GL Native–based libraries for hybrid applications are developed outside of this repository:

Toolkit Android iOS Developer
React Native (npm) Mapbox
Apache Cordova (npm) Telerik
NativeScript (npm) Telerik
Xamarin Xamarin

If your platform or hybrid application framework isn’t listed here, consider embedding Mapbox GL JS using the standard Web capabilities on your platform.
