Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I currently have a satellite tile server based on an mbtiles file, and I also have a normal openstreetmap tile server with the normal carto styling.

But I want to make my openstreetmap tiles as a layer over my satellite layer. So I guess I need to change the style.css of my osm tile server so it only contains labels so I can use it as a layer over my satellite layer.

However, I can't really find any concrete examples and I can't find my way in the carto styling as it really is complex.

So are there any carto styling "templates" which I could use so that my tile server only offers transparent label-only tiles? Or is there another (easy) way to just have "label" tiles?

My satellite tile server is running with https://github.com/maptiler/tileserver-php.

My OSM tile server is setup using the following tutorial: How to Set Up OpenStreetMap Tile Server on Ubuntu 20.04.
