Back in December it seemed there was no way to bring in a CartoDB layer into a Mapbox.js or Tilemill project.

Has this changed?


I'd like to implement this on a few local government projects I'll be working on shortly.

another example that may be useful:

<script src="http://libs.cartocdn.com/cartodb.js/v3/cartodb.uncompressed.js"></script>
<script src='http://api.tiles.mapbox.com/mapbox.js/v1.2.0/mapbox.standalone.js'></script>
function main() {
  var map = new L.Map('map', {
    zoomControl: false,
    center: [43, 0],
    zoom: 3

  cartodb.createLayer(map, 'http://documentation.cartodb.com/api/v2/viz/2b13c956-e7c1-11e2-806b-5404a6a683d5/viz.json').addTo(map)
