I have downloaded and configured openstreetmap-tile-server from github repository which is just great and works fine with my map.
I would like to test different style insead of gravitystorm's. I checked the dockerfile and made research over internet to understand how this server works behind the scene.
What I found - that server install and uses carto to export gravitystorms project.mml into readable mapnik.xml for Mapnik application.
But I have found different interesting style which I would like to use with current image.
What I understand by README file- this is whole application to serve tiles, but I would like to get only CSSes styles as it's written in dockerfile with downloading gravitystorm's style. Is it possible to extract CSS styles?

There are a bunch of questions over at that github repository already - - do any of those help?

In particular suggests a couple of options.

After studying dockerfile I understand I need to generate mapnik.xml with carto and it is fine.

What is curious for me is- how to know which file (form repository I listed in post) should I convert with carto into mapnik.xml? There is no project.mml - in fact there is no .mml file at all. I found file piano.yml which looks like good candidate to be converted but the extension is .yml and it is confusing. I found some of other repositories with no .mml files.

I know I could ask on all repositories separately, but I gues it's a newbie question and it can be obvious for users here.

If the file lists the layers, it's the right one. is indeed the right one.

At the end I have forked openstreetmap-carto repository and with kosmtik I've edited official style to my custom. Than during build OSM docker image I've changed style download path to my repository. It works fine.
