- As a Wikipedia Reader, I want to view a map on my mobile browser, so that I can better learn about geoinformation.
- As an SRE, I want to see a working example map using the new vector tile server, so that I have higher confidence this will reduce the time and effort I have to spend on supporting maps.
This is the first iteration and prototype of changing out our vector tile server functionality with Tegola. We hope to better understand the limitations of this new design, validate our assumptions in the technical approach and help identify what the next iteration of the new solution will look like.
- Vector tiles are generated that conformed with the current schema of maps being presented to users
- We collect a baseline of performance on:
- Client-side rendering
- Server-side tile rendering
- Map is rendered on mapbox-gl
- For mobile web test
- Desktop web test
- Basic styling is incorporated in the rendered map
- Spike regarding client-side renderers style config that can interact with Tegola and their interoperability (how easy is to pivot through them)
- Lightweight documentation of how Tegola works and how we plan to fit it in the overall architecture
- A few ADRs are proposed as a result of this prototype
- All maps documentation has been updated to reflect changes done by this work
Out of Scope
- Feature-parity map styling
- Client-compatibility for:
- Android Wikipedia App
- iOS Wikipedia App
