A TileStrata plugin for proxying tile requests. Commonly this is needed when you have a beefy vector tile server, and want rendering to happen on cheaper, more-lightweight boxes for scaling purposes.

Sample Usage

var tilestrata = require('tilestrata');
var vtileraster = require('tilestrata-vtile-raster');
var proxy = require('tilestrata-proxy');
var strata = tilestrata();

// route that proxies from an upstream server
strata.layer('vtiles').route('t.pbf').use(proxy({uri: 'http://domain.com/{z}/{x}/{y}.mvt'}));

// rasterize the vector tiles
    xml: '/home/ybon/Code/maps/thankyou/mapnik.xml',
    tileSize: 256,
    metatile: 1,
    bufferSize: 128,
    tilesource: ['vtiles', 't.pbf']


The plugin will automatically decompress gzipped content by default regardless of the client's Accept-Encoding header. This is due to the fact that proxied content is often used as part of a pipeline (it's not served directly to the client). This isn't always the case though. Decompression behavior is configurable:

// always decompress gzipped content
proxy({decompress: 'always'});

// decompress only if the client does not support compression
proxy({decompress: 'client'});

// never decompress gzipped content
proxy({decompress: 'never'});

To specify custom request headers, use the headers option:

	uri: '...',
	headers: {
		'User-Agent': 'TileStrata/' + tilestrata.version

Other Options

// spread requests across different subdomains ala leaflet
.use(proxy({uri: 'http://{s}.domain.com/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', subdomains: 'abc'}));
.use(proxy({uri: 'http://{s}.domain.com/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', subdomains: ['a', 'b', 'c']}));

// request arbitrary urls
.use(proxy({uri: tile => {
	// note: if you return a falsy value this will cause a 404 Not Found to be returned
	return 'http://domain.com/' + tile.z + '/' + tile.x + '/' + tile.y + '.png';
