Getting The Source

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

If you are interested in Developing or just view the sourcecode of the OSM server and editors, you can find it in our git and subversion repositories.


Increasingly we're using GIT instead of subversion for a lot of code: or

The rails code (for the website and API) can be downloaded with the following command: git clone

This is described in more detail at Committing to the rails port. There are many other git repos relating to OpenStreetMap. In particular Potlatch 2 code is managed in git. See Potlatch 2/Developer Documentation/git. In theory git repos are decentralised and can live anywhere. You'll find links amongst the developer information related to various software/tools on this wiki. In practice you'll also find many of them on


The Subversion repository is at, this contains sourcecode for some useful tools and scripts.

To obtain the latest version perform a checkout from the repository, using the subversion client or a frontend of your choice. At the command line you might perform a complete checkout using the following command: svn co

This is >100,000 files totalling >1GB so it will typically take over an hour to perform the checkout. Watch out for failed externals!

You can view the source repository in your web browser at

Getting SVN commit access

A SVN account is required to make changes or upload new software. SVN accounts can be requested from the administrator of the svn server. See System Administrators. (The administrator is currently System-users-3.svgTomH (on osm))

Any changes that you commit will not be visible on the live site until an admin rolls out the new version.

If you ask SVN access to update a JOSM plugin, please talk about it with JOSM developers first, on josm-dev mailing list. JOSM plugins require some understanding of the JOSM development model thus it is very easy to break existing things.

Once access is granted, please consider adding the template Svnuser to your wiki userpage, which automatically adds you to Category:Users with SVN accounts.

How to use subversion

Subversion (or SVN) is a version control system very similar to CVS. There's plenty of information about using subversion. See these resources:
