Installing the CLI
In order to run Apache Baremaps, you first need to install Java 17 or a later version. SDKMAN (opens in a new tab) provides a convenient Command Line Interface (CLI) to install and upgrade Java.
To install Apache Baremaps, download and decompress the latest binary distribution (opens in a new tab).
Then, add the
/bin directory of the decompressed distribution to your
PATH environment variable:
tar -xzf baremaps-<version>-incubating-bin.tar.gz export PATH=$PATH:`pwd`/baremaps/bin
baremaps command should now result in an output similar to the following:
Usage: baremaps [-V] [COMMAND] A toolkit for producing vector tiles. -V, --version Print version info. Commands: workflow Manage a workflow. database Database commands. map Map commands. geocoder Geocoder commands (experimental). iploc IP to location commands (experimental). ogcapi OGC API server (experimental).
From here, heads to Installing PostGIS if you plan to work with vector tiles.
If you want to work on Geocoding or IP to location, head directly into the related examples.
