Example of a Mapbox-gl-js layer integration.

Show how to add a mapbox-gl-js layer in an OpenLayers map. Note: Make sure to get your own API key at https://www.maptiler.com/cloud/ when using this example. No map will be visible when the API key has expired. mapbox-gl-js version 1.13.0 is used in this example as later versions require a Mapbox access token and are not compatible with older browsers.
