Feature request #3221
Fast, easy and beautiful on the fly rule-based rendering of OSM maps
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||duplicate|

Currently, rule-based rendering of openstreetmap.org-based maps is pretty slow, not easy to achieve (many data-management operation, need to apply patch manually and recompile...) and sometimes give ugly results. It should be fast, easy and beautiful.
Fast: to make navigation a fun experience; to allow doing this on old computers/computers without internet access (for users not having access to the slippy map).
Easy: because everybody can create new tags of tags, there are thousands of different tags. They will never be displayed all on online-rendered map. There are as many different needs as users. Each user should be able to define what he/she wants to render, and how, based on personal needs and tastes.
Beautiful: artefacts, unwanted graphic features and semantic needs that are impossible to meet make ugly maps; a beautiful map is easy to read for the ordinary user, rich and precise for the advanced user.
