- It supports all popular modern desktop browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Edge, and IE11.
- iD is not yet designed for mobile browsers, but this is something we hope to add!
- Data is rendered with d3.js.
- Read the project Code of Conduct and remember to be nice to one another.
- Read up on Contributing and the code style of iD.

Note: Windows users should run these steps in a shell started with “Run as administrator”. This is only necessary the first time so that the build process can create symbolic links.
To run the current development version of iD on your own computer:
- Create a local
git cloneof the project, then
cdinto the project folder
npm install(this will run the
prepublishscript that builds everything)
http://localhost:8080/in a web browser
For guidance on building a packaged version, running tests, and contributing to development, see CONTRIBUTING.md.
Initial development of iD was made possible by a grant of the Knight Foundation.
