I'm trying to run a local version of iD and am having problems. I'm on windows.

Here's what I've done so far:

git clone git@github.com:openstreetmap/iD
cd iD
python -m SimpleHTTPServer

I can then visit in browser & the map loads, everything seems to work.

The browser is logged in to openstreetmap.org, so I think that it picks up that I'm logged into osm automatically. But when I try to save changes, an OAUTH permission window pops up. I accept everything there, and it redirects me to[removed] which is a page whose content is just:


Here's what view source on it looks like - maybe a broken unicode page which mentions symlink?:


It looks like iD may need more config to run locally? Is it just missing the hostname of the page OAUTH wants to redirect me to?

Also, "ÿþ" is the UTF-16 BOM.

It was a symlink problem due to windows. I just had to move <root>dist/land.html to <root>/land.html (replacing the symlink originally at land.html)

There is symlink for css/img - you have to copy dist/img to replace css/img also.
