The API aims to simplify and unify - under the
mapbox interface, you can set
up tile layers with
mapbox.layer, markers with
a map with
mapbox.map. Controls, taken from the Wax
project, now have common interfaces and are automatically attached to maps.
We've also been working on a great new examples gallery with examples from the simplest map possible to cool animated markers with markers.js. As the API grows and we find more and more uses for it, this gallery will only grow.
Try it out, and see how much your site building experience can improve. As always, if you have any questions, hit us up in the support forum.
