This buildpack clones, compiles, and installs Mapbox's Tippecanoe library for generating vector tiles from source data.


Add a .tippecanoe-version file to the source directory of your application to pin the version of tippecanoe that gets installed. If not specified, this buildpack will install the HEAD version of tippecanoe.

Example .tippecanoe-version file:



tippecanoe and related binaries get installed to your application's bin/ directory, which should already be on the application $PATH.

Dependencies & Troubleshooting

This buildpack is verified to work on build machines on Heroku's heroku-18 stack.

The only additional dependency you need is libsqlite3-dev; the Aptfile buildpack is a good way to get that installed.
