I've been asked to add a form to a map that will write data in the background (e.g., ajax to a magic file that does datawrites and some emailing, notifications etc) and a new marker will be added to the map being displayed.
I have done this before with CartoDB SQL api. Sent all the form data to a magic ajax script that wrote the new info to the database, then the front-end would refresh the map to show the new marker.
So that's fine, and I had intended upon copying my code over wholesale, but then I found out this is in MapBox ... Is there any way to write to the MB database? or will i need to re-work the entire map storing the data elsewhere ?
