I am trying to publish a raster layer with qgis2web, when I set the parameters in the popup qgis2web window, the raster doesn´t show up in the preview window (there is a question mark instead). Then, after exporting/publishing, the folder with index.html file and other folders are created, but there is nothing inside the data folder, and the raster does not show on the index.html page. A similar thing happens if trying with qgis2leaf. Any idea of what might been wrong? The raster is a 3 band composite RGB from Sentinel2 bands, saved as rendered raster, projection EPSG:4326.QGIS Version is 2.18.

  • Confirmed that it fails with OpenLayers 3 export. However, it works for me with Leaflet export - can you confirm? I'll investigate the OpenLayers issue. Feb 4, 2017 at 11:31
  • No, it doesn´t work with Leaflet export for me. Qgis MacOS ver 2.18.

    Ah, perhaps you have the same bug as github.com/tomchadwin/qgis2web/issues/…. Some MacOS rasters fail. No fix for it yet, I'm afraid. Feb 4, 2017 at 12:17

It looks like there was a regression in qgis2web for OpenLayers 3 raster layers. I've committed a fix to the Github master branch at https://github.com/tomchadwin/qgis2web. Please try that and leave a comment to this answer to say whether it fixes the problem or not.

  • thank you very much Tom, but by knowledge is limited for executing your recommendation, I see the utils.py file that you have added, but I wouldn´t know how to proceed to try it. I´d be thankful if you adviced me how.

  • On the page I linked to, click the green button "Clone or download", and choose "Download ZIP". Open the downloaded zip file, and copy the contents of the folder "qgis2web-master" over the contents of the qgis2web installation folder (the installation folder is listed in the plugin's details screen in the QGIS plugin manager). Then restart QGIS - you now have the most up-do-date development version of qgis2web. Try your raster again, and report back what happens. Feb 4, 2017 at 13:08
  • I updated the folder content, but everything stays the same: there is no problem with vector layers, but with rasters, nothing show in preview when selecting OpenLayers 3, and I can see a square outline with a question mark in the center when selecting Leaflet.

  • Now, what I did is installed QGis Windows version on the same machine, with Parallels Desktop. Now, OpenLayers 3 doesn´t work but Leaflet does the export fine.

  • Can you post any errors, either from the QGIS Python console, or from the browser console? Feb 8, 2017 at 7:08
