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-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).
- Generic File Formats
- GameMaker: Studio 1.4
- GameMaker Studio 2.3
- Godot 4
- Other Formats
- Custom Export Formats
- Export as Image
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 ...
