This quickstart guide will help you get
pg_tileserv up and running with Container Apps on Crunchy Bridge. We recommend you start with the Container Apps Quickstart to get a general understanding of Container Apps.
A PostGIS-only tile server in Go. Strip away all the other requirements, it just has to take in HTTP tile requests and form and execute SQL. In a sincere act of flattery, the API looks a lot like that of the Martin tile server.
Getting started with pg_tileserv in a Container App
First, make sure you have Container Apps enabled. As a user with superuser privileges, run
CREATE EXTENSION pgpodman; to install the extension in the
postgres database of the desired cluster.
Next, find your cluster’s database URL to include as the
DATABASE_URL parameter when you run the container. You can find the URL in the Connection section of the cluster dashboard (choose the
application role), or by running
cb uri --role application <cluster name> on the command line.
pg_tileserv, run the following using your own value for
SELECT run_container('-dt -p 5433:5433/tcp -e DATABASE_URL="your-database-URL" -e TS_HTTPPORT=5433 docker.io/pramsey/pg_tileserv:latest');
Now you can visit your running
pg_tileserv at your-host-URL:5433. You can find your Host URL in the Overview section of your cluster dashboard, or by running
cb info <cluster name>.
