I've successfully used Leaflet to load a geoJSON polygon-shapefile with data, and added click and hover interactivity to the layer. For a large dataset, I switched to mapbox.js 1.6.1, used TileMill to export a tiles, used infostream's mbtiles-php (https://github.com/infostreams/mbtiles-php) to serve the data.
I'm very confused, now, how to use mapbox.js to access show the polygon attributes in the tile layer? I have successfully loaded the tiles onto a page using mapbox.js - but don't know where to start to pull in the attribute table.
I did not find an appropriate Mapbox example on the example page, and the Mapbox support links are all directed to their contact page. Did I misunderstand how the purpose of Mapbox/TileMill?
