I want to build my own map server which users can use for routing, directions etc. Currently, I have only st up an OSRM server which can send back json response using this tutorial here and it works perfect for me. Now I want to take it to the next level and implement tiles like, users get to see their route and maps. I also want to add an auto-complete address functionality. I have read a lot of articles like these here and its further links down. But I am not getting it together. Will following these steps help me achieve my goal. What tutorial should i look for auto-complete, is Nominatim or Pelias is required and how they can be integrated with OSM. Basically I want to build something similar to openrouteservice o my own server.

Photon is the easiest solution for autocomplete geocoding:

I learned about photon, but my problem is now that i have osrm backend set up how to have the front-end up and running that shows polyline/maps to users. should i have my own tile server for that, as OSRM front-end is not running on my system it says localhost:9966 secure connection failed
