[David Losada, Ushahidi] Gerald, did you see this mention here? https://github.com/ushahidi/platform-release/#connecting-the-mobile-app. You would set the SITE_URL variable in your docker-compose.yml file , there is a commented out snippet for it.
Note that this will not work with localhost, because that URL will be used by the mobile app in your phone to connect. It needs to be a proper address in your local network or the internet.
[David Losada, Ushahidi] Dear @ptandler:[matrix.org](http://matrix.org) , that’s a great question. The folks at Mapbox have been very gracious with us and our mission, and as such the limits of the keys we have with them are a bit more generous than usual.
As long as each individual deployer keeps the usage to normal levels and there are no cases of egregious abuse, there shouldn’t be any problems. In case of heavy traffic due to just organic success due to great civic impact, we would work with you and Mapbox to find a solution. If cases of abuse are detected, we would work with Mapbox to blacklist the offending domains.
In addition to that, in case you are looking to make commercial use of Ushahidi technology with Mapbox maps, we would very much encourage that you assumed Mapbox license costs in your own budget :pray:
[Unknown] @dcardinal , if you are specifically referring to downloads, you are exactly right, platform-release is the combination of platform and platform-client , pre-arranged in an opinionated way to install them together at once.
A more flexible installation would result from downloading and setting up platform and platform-client separately , but the product functions would be the same.
