I have changed this in my code:

var osmUrl='http://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png';

to this:

var osmUrl='https://maps.wikimedia.org/osm-intl/{z}/{x}/{y}.png';

It works fine, but in the previous variable, there was a {s} that I don't know if it is possible to add for wikimedia tiles mirror.

I'm not very familiar with OSM tiles. What's {s} for?

Placeholder {s} should be for subdomains:

https://github.com/Leaflet/Leaflet/blob/2dbda53cc384b378fa156c3e810e4b823e411579/src/layer/tile/TileLayer.js#L164

Generally several subdomains (server names) are provided to get around browser limitations on the number of simultaneous HTTP connections to each host. Browser-based applications can thus request multiple tiles from multiple subdomains faster than from one subdomain.

With HTTP/2, domain sharding may not be necessary anymore.

@Ricordisamoa Thanks. Then I think I don't have to use it in my code anymore.
