In WMTS the publicUrl path was missed and it was not working properly.
Similar story about wmts.tmpl: the baseUrl is not working properly when
tileserver is hidden behind the proxy with different root path.

* Minor bugfix: make baseUrl always use '/' in the end

TileServer GL

Build Status Docker Hub

Vector and raster maps with GL styles. Server-side rendering by MapLibre GL Native. Map tile server for MapLibre GL JS, Android, iOS, Leaflet, OpenLayers, GIS via WMTS, etc.

Download vector tiles from OpenMapTiles.

Getting Started with Node

Make sure you have Node.js version 14.20.0 or above installed. Node 16 is recommended. (running node -v it should output something like v16.x.x). Running without docker requires Native dependencies to be installed first.

Install tileserver-gl with server-side raster rendering of vector tiles with npm.

npm install -g tileserver-gl

Once installed, you can use it like the following examples.

using a mbtiles file

wget https://github.com/maptiler/tileserver-gl/releases/download/v1.3.0/zurich_switzerland.mbtiles
tileserver-gl --mbtiles zurich_switzerland.mbtiles
[in your browser, visit http://[server ip]:8080]

using a config.json + style + mbtiles file

wget https://github.com/maptiler/tileserver-gl/releases/download/v1.3.0/test_data.zip
unzip test_data.zip
tileserver-gl
[in your browser, visit http://[server ip]:8080]

Alternatively, you can use the tileserver-gl-light npm package instead, which is pure javascript, does not have any native dependencies, and can run anywhere, but does not contain rasterization on the server side made with Maplibre GL Native.

Getting Started with Docker

An alternative to npm to start the packed software easier is to install Docker on your computer and then run from the tileserver-gl directory

Example using a mbtiles file

wget https://github.com/maptiler/tileserver-gl/releases/download/v1.3.0/zurich_switzerland.mbtiles
docker run --rm -it -v $(pwd):/data -p 8080:80 maptiler/tileserver-gl --mbtiles zurich_switzerland.mbtiles
[in your browser, visit http://[server ip]:8080]

Example using a config.json + style + mbtiles file

wget https://github.com/maptiler/tileserver-gl/releases/download/v1.3.0/test_data.zip
unzip test_data.zip
docker run --rm -it -v $(pwd):/data -p 8080:80 maptiler/tileserver-gl
[in your browser, visit http://[server ip]:8080]

Example using a different path

docker run --rm -it -v /your/local/config/path:/data -p 8080:80 maptiler/tileserver-gl

replace '/your/local/config/path' with the path to your config file

Alternatively, you can use the maptiler/tileserver-gl-light docker image instead, which is pure javascript, does not have any native dependencies, and can run anywhere, but does not contain rasterization on the server side made with Maplibre GL Native.

Getting Started with Linux cli

Test from command line

wget https://github.com/maptiler/tileserver-gl/releases/download/v1.3.0/test_data.zip
unzip -q test_data.zip -d test_data
xvfb-run --server-args="-screen 0 1024x768x24" npm test

Run from command line

xvfb-run --server-args="-screen 0 1024x768x24" node .
