papyrus_mapproxy provides an easy and convenient method for embedding MapProxy in Pyramid applications.
The source code of papyrus_mapproxy is straightforward, so if papyrus_mapproxy doesn't do what you want, open its source code, get inspiration, and write your own code.
papyrus_mapproxy can be installed with
$ easy_install papyrus_mapproxy
Often you'll want to make papyrus_mapproxy a dependency of your Pyramid
application, which is done by adding
papyrus_mapproxy to the
install_requires list defined in the Pyramid application's
Embedding MapProxy in a Pyramid application is easy.
Edit the application's
development.ini file and, in the main section
mapproxy.yaml to the location of the MapProxy config
[app:MyApp] use = egg:MyApp ... mapproxy.yaml = %(here)s/mapproxy.yaml
In this example the MapProxy config file is located at the same location as the
development.ini file. (As an example you can use this MapProxy config file.)
Now, edit the application's main file,
__init__.py, and register
papyrus_mapproxy using the
def main(global_config, **settings): config = Configurator(settings=settings) import papyrus_mapproxy config.include(papyrus_mapproxy)
That's it! The Pyramid application now exposes a MapProxy service at
/mapproxy. Try http://localhost:6543/mapproxy/demo.
