HTML TemplatingΒΆ

pygeoapi uses Jinja as its templating engine to render HTML and Flask to provide route paths of the API that returns HTTP responses. For complete details on how to use these modules, refer to the Jinja documentation and the Flask documentation.

The default pygeoapi configuration has server.template commented out and defaults to the pygeoapi pygeoapi/templates and pygeoapi/static folder. To point to a different set of template configuration, you can edit your configuration:

    path: /path/to/jinja2/templates/folder # jinja2 template HTML files
    static: /path/to/static/folder # css, js, images and other static files referenced by the template

Note: the URL path to your static folder will always be /static in your deployed web instance of pygeoapi.

Your templates folder should mimic the same file names and structure of the default pygeoapi templates. Otherwise, you will need to modify accordingly.

Linking to a static file in your HTML templates can be done using Jinja syntax and the exposed config['server']['url']:

<!-- CSS example -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ config['server']['url'] }}/static/css/default.css">
<!-- JS example -->
<script src="{{ config['server']['url'] }}/static/js/main.js"></script>
<!-- Image example with metadata -->
<img src="{{ config['server']['url'] }}/static/img/logo.png" title="{{ config['metadata']['identification']['title'] }}" />
