Using a hosted Oskari - RPC

One of the features of Oskari is the ability to embed a map to another website. RPC-functionality allows a developer to control the embedded map and react to events on the map from the embedding website. (Read more)

Frontend

The user interface is a Javascript-based single-page app built by selecting a series of modules that provide features for an application. The modules provide a documented API for interaction and/or easy replacement for a new implementation of a feature. You can mix and match the modules or create new ones to customize the application for your needs.

Server

The oskari-server is built with Java and Maven. It provides deployable webapps for managing and launching the user interface for Oskari-based apps. It also provides endpoints (action routes) for http-requests triggered by the frontend.
