Thanks for this, but I suspect that a bit more information will be
needed by anyone who might be thinking about helping with this.
Currently the "What's needed" section of the readme is a bit "Monty
Python: how to play the flute" (
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1sM29zGxeo ). As just one example, I'd
expect that the osm2pgsql database needs to be imported with a
particular style file to decide which columns are created. Maybe that's
the default osm2pgsql one, maybe it's a different one such as
, or maybe it's a cut-down one to minimise database size - but without
that information, no-one is going to be able to reproduce what you
currently have at http://18.104.22.168/ or https://www.free-map.org.uk/
and investigate why things are as they are there - for example why are
some things shown and not other, why does the screen only take up a
quarter of the browser window, why is it so slow (is that a server or a
client side issue)?
I appreciate that this is only designed to be a proof of concept - but
surely the purpose is that people will see it and say "that isn't
exactly what I was looking for but I can change it to do X, and Y, and
Z"? I don't think that that's really possible right now.
