I have designed a non-real map, using QGIS. Until now, my map was very basic (a few layers with some polygons, dots, and lines). This map is a "decal" from a raster image.

I recently add some custom labels, which are displayed into a certain zoom range, and also some labels (using invisible dots or lines, if I need curved labels).

Here is how a part of my map looks in QGIS :

Here is what the qgis2web export give me for the same area :

How can I export the map to the web in the most accurate way possible?

    to preserve curved labels you will need to generate tiles plugins.qgis.org/plugins/quantumnik will create tiles in QGIS – Mapperz Jan 19 '16 at 18:50
  • Of course, that's the other way to do it as @Mapperz says - a raster layer, tiled or untiled. – Tom Chadwin Jan 19 '16 at 20:13
  • Thank you for your insights. I can't find the plugin in QGIS although it's available on the previous link. – Yann-Reun Jan 19 '16 at 20:30
  • you can copy the files from github and load locally (into C:\Users\user\.qgis2\python\plugins\quantumnik) you might have to restart QGIS to have it picked up. – Mapperz Jan 19 '16 at 20:44

I'm afraid I don't think this is possible either with OL3's labels or with the Leaflet label plugin. I therefore don't think curved labels can be easily developed in qgis2web. They're certainly not currently possible, I'm afraid. If someone knows how to do them in either mapping lib, please let us know.
