Minimal project to use OpenLayers with Parcel bundler

Full Screen


This is a minimal project for getting started with OpenLayers using Parcel bundler.

If you wonder what is Parcel, think of a powerful & simplified Webpack alternative. Their official motto is “Blazing fast, zero configuration web application bundler”


You must have Node installed

You may want to use Yarn instead of Npm to install Node packages but we choose to narrow choice to avoid confusion for beginners.

Install and test the demo

Clone this repository and cd into with:

git clone demo-ol-parceljs
cd demo-ol-parceljs

Install deps with:

npm install

Then do:

npm start

Open http://localhost:1234 to see the result

For production, you may want to run:

npm run build

and serve generated content using dist directory as root.
