mapnik's high-quality bindings let's you choose from Node.js, Python, and C++.

import mapnik
m = mapnik.Map(256,256)
mapnik.load_map(m, 'path/to/file.xml')
mapnik.render_to_file(m, 'the_image.png')
var mapnik = require('mapnik');
var fs = require('fs');
// register fonts and datasource plugins
var map = new mapnik.Map(256, 256);
map.load('./test/stylesheet.xml', function(err,map) {
	if (err) throw err;
	var im = new mapnik.Image(256, 256);
	map.render(im, function(err,im) {
		if (err) throw err;
		im.encode('png', function(err,buffer) {
			if (err) throw err;
			fs.writeFile('map.png',buffer, function(err) {
				if (err) throw err;
				console.log('saved map image to map.png');

style with a stylesheet

Only a single XML stylesheet for your map, regardless of the code binding.
XML Configuration
 1 <Map background-color="blue" srs="+proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs">
 2 	<Style name="My Style">
 3 		<Rule>
 4 			<PolygonSymbolizer fill="#f2eff9" />
 5 			<LineSymbolizer stroke="rgb(50%,50%,50%)" stroke-width="0.1" />
 6 		</Rule>
 7 	</Style>
 8 	<Layer name="world" srs="+proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs">
 9 		<StyleName>My Style</StyleName>
10 		<Datasource>
11 			<Parameter name="file">path/to/shapefile.shp</Parameter>
