MapLibre GL

MapLibre GL is a community led fork derived from mapbox-gl-js prior to their switch to a non-OSS license.

Migrating from mapbox-gl

If you depend on mapbox-gl directly, simply replace mapbox-gl with maplibre-gl in package.json:

  "dependencies": {
-    "mapbox-gl": "^1.13.0"
+    "maplibre-gl": ">=1.14.0"

And replace mapboxgl with maplibregl in your JavaScript and optionally in your HTML/CSS code:

-    var map = new mapboxgl.Map({
+    var map = new maplibregl.Map({

-    <button class="mapboxgl-ctrl">
+    <button class="maplibregl-ctrl">

Want an example? Try out MapLibre GL on CodePen and have a look at ones in the official MapLibre GL JS Documentation.

Use MapLibre GL JS bindings for React (https://visgl.github.io/react-map-gl/docs/get-started/get-started#using-with-a-mapbox-gl-fork) and Angular (https://github.com/maplibre/ngx-maplibre-gl). Find more at awesome-maplibre.


This project's initial plans are outlined in the Roadmap project. The primary goal is consistency and backwards-compatability with previous releases and continued bug-fixes and maintenance going forward.

Community Leadership

Avoid Fragmentation

If you depend on a free software alternative to mapbox-gl-js, please consider joining our effort! Anyone with a stake in a healthy community led fork is welcome to help us figure out our next steps. We welcome contributors and leaders! MapLibre GL already represents the combined efforts of a few early fork efforts, and we all benefit from "one project" rather than "our way". If you know of other forks, please reach out to them and direct them here.

Thank you Mapbox 🙏🏽

We'd like to acknowledge the amazing work Mapbox has contributed to open source. The open source community is sad to part ways with them, but we simultaneously feel grateful for everything they already contributed. mapbox-gl-js 1.x is an open source achievment which now lives on as maplibre-gl. We're proud to develop on the shoulders of giants, thank you Mapbox 🙇🏽‍♀️.

Please keep in mind: Unauthorized backports are the biggest threat to the MapLibre project. It is unacceptable to backport code from mapbox-gl-js, which is not covered by the former BSD-3 license. If you are unsure about this issue, please ask!
