We have an updated example for our Leaflet 1 tutorial thanks to some incentive from Matthew McKenna. Leaflet has undergone many changes recently, which rendered our original tutorials obsolete. We are currently restructuring with the 0.6 upgrade (0.6.4 more specifically). Check out the new Setup and Basemap tutorial.
