Tirex Tile Rendering System
===========================

Tirex is a bunch of tools that let you run a tile server. A tile server
is a web server that hands out pre-rendered map raster images to clients.

The web page for Tirex is at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tirex .
See there for more information.

PREREQUISITES
-------------

You'll need the following Perl modules to run Tirex:

* IPC::ShareLite (Debian/Ubuntu: libipc-sharelite-perl)
* JSON           (Debian/Ubuntu: libjson-perl)
* GD             (Debian/Ubuntu: libgd-gd2-perl)
* LWP            (Debian/Ubuntu: libwww-perl)

You'll need a C++ compiler and build tools to compile the Mapnik backend.

BUILDING
--------

To build Tirex run

  make

in the main directory. This will compile the mapnik backend and create
the man pages for the Perl modules.

Call 'make clean' to cleanup after a 'make'.

INSTALLING
----------

To install Tirex call

  make install

as root user. This will install the main parts of Tirex including the
tirex-master, tirex-backend-manager and the Mapnik backend.

This will not install the example map, or the munin or nagios plugins.
To install those, call

  make install-example-map
  make install-munin
  make install-nagios

respectively. You can also install everything with

  make install-all

DEBIAN/UBUNTU
-------------

To create Debian/Ubuntu packages you need the package 'devscripts'
installed. Call

  make deb

to create the packages. The following packages will be created in the parent
directory:

  tirex-core
  tirex-backend-mapnik
  tirex-backend-wms
  tirex-backend-mapserver
  tirex-example-map
  tirex-munin-plugin
  tirex-nagios-plugin
  tirex-syncd

Call 'make deb-clean' to cleanup after a 'make deb'.

TESTS
-----

Call 'prove' in the main directory to run Perl unit tests. You need Test::More
(Debian/Ubuntu: libtest-simple-perl) and Test::Harness (Debian/Ubuntu:
libtest-harness-perl) installed.

There are some other tests in the 'test' directory. See the description at the
beginning of the scripts for information on how to use them.
