Export FormatsΒΆ

While there are many libraries and frameworks that work directly with Tiled maps, Tiled also supports a number of additional file and export formats, as well as exporting a map to an image.

Exporting can be done by clicking File > Export. When triggering the menu action multiple times, Tiled will only ask for the file name the first time. Exporting can also be automated using the --export-map and --export-tileset command-line parameters.

Several Export Options are available, which are applied to maps or tilesets before they are exported (without affecting the map or tileset itself).

Note

When exporting on the command-line on Linux, Tiled will still need an X server to run. To automate exports in a headless environment, you can use a headless X server such as Xvfb. In this case you would run Tiled from the command-line as follows:

xvfb-run tiled --export-map ...
