Project description

papyrus_tilecache provides an easy and convenient method for embeding TileCache in Pyramid applications.


papyrus_tilecache can be installed with easy_install:

$ easy_install papyrus_tilecache

Often you’ll want to make papyrus_tilecache a dependency of your Pyramid application, which is done by adding papyrus_tilecache to the install_requires list defined in the Pyramid application’s file.

Embed TileCache

Embeding TileCache in a Pyramid application is easy.

Edit the application’s development.ini file and, in the main section ([app:]), set tilecache.cfg to the location of the TileCache config file. Example:

use = egg:MyApp
tilecache.cfg = %(here)s/tilecache.cfg

In this example the TileCache config file is located at the same location as the development.ini file.

You can use the following TileCache config as an example:


Now, edit the application’s main file,, and register papyrus_tilecache using the Configurator.include method:

def main(global_config, **settings):

    config = Configurator(settings=settings)

    import papyrus_tilecache

That’s it! The Pyramid application now exposes a TileCache service at /tilecache.
