I have download a shapefile from OpenStreetMap (OSM), then I open it using TileMill. The next step is create stylesheet ".mss" file.

How can I download the exact OSM's stylesheet?


The OSM stylesheet is on github : https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto

    The question was how to download the MSS file, so giving a link to the project is fine. – etrimaille Jul 9 '15 at 15:08

OSM uses (-ed) the native Mapnik XML stylesheets, while Tilemill uses CartoCSS as style language. You need to get a converted map style file here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/CartoCSS
