We often find ourselves needing a simple, high speed and decoupled map tile server to generate maps from PostGIS as fast as possible without sacrificing developmental flexibility.
Today we’re really pleased to introduce a node.js library called windshaft that makes integrating a simple high speed map tiler with your application as simple as possible.
Windshaft give you:
Being a dynamic map renderer, windshaft commits some map server sins in it’s raw form, but the idea is that you the developer actually want to graft your own auth/metrics/caching/scaling on top of decent core components. Same old story: high cohesion, low coupling makes us happy.
