Motivation & Current implementation

MapProxy WebConf is a small web-based configuration tool for MapProxy.

The current implementation of MapProxy WebConf is able to create new configurations and to save them as .yaml files. The configuration files are stored in the configured output path. The name of the configuration file is the project name.

Not all MapProxy options are available from WebConf. But with the edit manually mode, you are able to add the missing configuration parameters to your config.

The MapProxy documentation is available at:

Note: In the current implementation the MapProxy WebConf doesn't have a demo client and you are not able to load existing MapProxy configurations.


We recommend to install MapProxy WebConf into a virtual Python environment.

A virtualenv is a self-contained Python installation where you can install arbitrary Python packages without affecting the system installation.

How to create a virutalenv is explained in the MapProxy documentation:

To install from source just do:

git clone
cd mapproxy-webconf/app
pip install -e .

Create your own configuration file from the template:

cp config.tmpl.ini config.ini

Then start MapProxy WebConf:

mapproxy-webconf serve-develop config.ini

Open http://localhost:8080/ in your browser.


MapProxy WebConf has a config.ini file for the configuration:

# path where the yaml-files are stored
output_path = /tmp/

# path where the sqlite-files is stored
storage_path = ./

# name of the sqlite.db
sqlite_db = mapproxy.sqlite

# default langauge
language = en

# supported languages
supported_languages = en,de

# demo modus for our online demo
demo = False
You can’t perform that action at this time.
