    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    A TileStrata plugin for generating mapnik vector tiles (pbf). Vector tiles are useful for times when you want to render multiple variations of a tile (1x, 2x, interactivity, etc) without having to do expensive data fetching for each. Use the tilestrata-vtile-raster plugin to render them into normal images. To use this plugin, you must have node-mapnik in your dependency tree.

    Sample Usage

    var vtile = require('tilestrata-vtile');
    var vtileraster = require('tilestrata-vtile-raster');
     
    var common = {
        xml: '/path/to/map.xml',
        tileSize: 256,
        metatile: 1,
        bufferSize: 128
    };
     
    server.layer('mylayer')
        .route('t.pbf').use(vtile(common))
        .route('t.png').use(vtileraster(common, {
            tilesource: ['mylayer', 't.pbf']
        }))
        .route('i.json').use(rasterizer(common, {
            tilesource: ['mylayer', 't.pbf'],
            interactivity: true
        }));

    If you need fine control over the Mapnik vector tile creation options, use the overrideRenderOptions option:

    server.layer('mylayer')
        .route('t.pbf').use(vtile({
            xml: '/path/to/map.xml',
            tileSize: 256,
            metatile: 1,
            bufferSize: 128,
            overrideRenderOptions: function(opts, z, maxz) {
                opts.simplify_distance = z < maxz ? 8 : 1;
                return opts;
            }
        }))
