  1. mod_tile depends on Apache and requires a rendering backend like renderd (which uses Mapnik) or Tirex (which supports several backends).
  2. TileSweep renders tiles with Mapnik via libmapnik.
  3. TileServer GL can render tiles with MapLibre GL Native, there is also a Light version which does not depend on the rasterization library.
