Publish a tileset with Mapbox Tiling Service


mts_publish_tileset() publishes an existing vector tileset at your Mapbox account, allowing you to use the vector tiles in your projects. The tileset name will be the same name you specified in mts_create_tileset().


mts_publish_tileset(tileset_name, username, access_token = NULL)



The name of the tileset (as supplied to mts_create_tileset())


Your Mapbox username


Your Mapbox access token


The published tileset will conform to rules specified in its recipe. If you want to change the recipe for a tileset, use mts_update_recipe() then re-publish the tileset with a call to mts_publish_tileset() once more.


The response from the Mapbox Tiling Service API, formatted as an R list.
