node-mapnik on windows

1) Cleaning up mess
npm cache clean if encounter issues despite changes

2) binding.gyp

2a) From the dos command prompt, running npm install
set protobuf_src=
eg set protobuf_src=x:\progra~1\protobuf\src
set cairo_src=
eg set cairo_src=x:\progra~1\cairo\src

2b) Modifying binding.gyp in directory node-mapnik
from
 'conditions': [
      ['OS=="win"', {
        'variables': {
          'PROTOBUF_INCLUDES%':'C:/dev2/protobuf/vsprojects/include',
          'PROTOBUF_LIBS%':'C:/dev2/protobuf/vsprojects/Release',
          'PROTOBUF_LIBRARY%':'libprotobuf-lite.lib',
to
 'conditions': [
      ['OS=="win"', {
        'variables': {
          'CAIRO_INCLUDES%':'$(CAIRO_SRC)',
          'PROTOBUF_INCLUDES%':'$(PROTOBUF_SRC)',
          'PROTOBUF_LIBS%':'$(PROTOBUF_SRC)/../vsprojects/Release',
          'PROTOBUF_LIBRARY%':'libprotobuf-lite.lib',

2c) from
'conditions': [
        ['OS=="win"', {
            'include_dirs':[
                '<!@(mapnik-config --includes)',
                '<!@(mapnik-config --dep-includes)',
                '<@(PROTOBUF_INCLUDES)'
              ],

to
'conditions': [
        ['OS=="win"', {
            'include_dirs':[
                '<!@(mapnik-config --includes)',
                '<!@(mapnik-config --dep-includes)',
                '<@(PROTOBUF_INCLUDES)',
                '<@(CAIRO_INCLUDES)'
              ],


3) As advised in binding.gyp, make changes to .node-gyp\*\common.gypi under user directory
xp - c:\documents and settings\username\...
win7 - c:\users\username\...


see https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/gyp-developer/p98GJxYJuH4
see https://github.com/TooTallNate/node-gyp/issues/26


4)  Testing
npm install -g mocha
npm install sphericalmercator

Grab a copy of GDAL for windows from http://www.gisinternals.com/sdk/
sdkshell.bat to set the environment for
4a) PROJ_LIB
4b) GDAL_DATA


mocha -R spec to list details

Pay-it-forward

Decades of sustained, methodical development of Singapore’s water policies has its many players, from multi-national corporations to international organisations, all of whom have performed a crucial role. During the dialogue, Mr Lee acknowledged their contributions, and in a pay-it-forward move, Singapore now wants to share its expertise with other countries facing water shortages.

"We did not do this by ourselves. We climbed on other people’s shoulders. We brought this [technology] together and improved on them. We’re happy to have people climb on our shoulders, whether they are from the Middle East, China, India, whatever. It’s a collaborative effort. The world will need this because what we have assumed was limitless — endless supplies of water — is not so. We’ve found it not to be so, and that we’ve got a way out of it.” -MM Lee
