Main API as source for vector tiles
I would suggest to remove following sentence: "The OpenStreetMap API can also be used as an ad-hoc vector tile source for OSM XML data by creating appropriate bounding box queries; the iD editor uses this mechanism to access OSM source data." We should lead people to bad ideas. --Andi 20:09, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
What about mapbox?
They have blogged mapbox vector tiles in may 2013 which should have been progressing since. There seem to be some referenced projects:
- mapbox studio - tilemill2 replacement, display the final result (uses node.js)
- tilelive vector - render mapnik vector tiles to raster
