VTSD (VTS-Deamon) is an HTTP server for streaming static surfaces and map configuration delivery with nginx-like configuration
- Main GitHub repository
- Build and install instructions
- Commented sample configuration file. To get complete list of options, run vtsd --help-all.
How it works¶
Once running, it behaves similarly as nginx webserver. If you access an URL matching location where
dataset is set to
true (which is the default), VTS will try to open underlaying filesystem path as:
- storage - looking for a
storage.confwithin a directory,
- tileset - looking for a
tileset.confwithin a directory,
- or storage view (parsing given path as JSON).
VTSD will return map configuration for the first entity it successfully opens. If none of above succeeds, VTSD will return a directory listing of underlaying path if configured to do so.
