QGIS Server Simple Browser Plugin

A new server plugin provides quick browsing of a QGIS project and OpenLayers based layers preview.

Today I’m releasing the first version of QGIS Server Simple Browser Plugin, a simple Server plugin that generates a browsable table of contents of the project’s layers and a link to an OpenLayers map.

 

How it works

The plugin adds an XSL stylesheet to GetProjectsettings XML response, the generated HTML looks like this:

 

QGIS Server Browser TOC Tree

The openlayers format

The map preview is generated by adding a new application/openlayers FORMAT option to GetMap requests, the generated map automatically fits to the layer’s extent and has basic GetFeatureInfo

capabilities.

Limitations

The current version only supports EPSG:4326 that must be available (enabled) on the server.

Source code and download

The plugin is available on the official repository: ServerSimpleBrowser
The code is on GitHub.
