Installing the GeoServer CSS extension

The CSS extension is listed among the other extension downloads on the GeoServer download page.

The installation process is similar to other GeoServer extensions:

  1. Download the https://build.geoserver.org/geoserver/master/ext-latest/geoserver-2.19-SNAPSHOT-css-plugin.zip

    Verify that the version number in the filename corresponds to the version of GeoServer you are running (for example 2.19-SNAPSHOT above).

  2. Extract the contents of the archive into the WEB-INF/lib directory in GeoServer. Make sure you do not create any sub-directories during the extraction process.

  3. Restart GeoServer.

If installation was successful, you will see a new CSS entry in the Styles editor.
