My goal is to create EPSG:4326 vector tiles (using Plate Caree) that can be served in Leaflet. I currently have a .shp file, which I converted to a geojson file using ogr2ogr. The main obstacle to begin with his seems to be how to create vector tiles from a shape file (or geojson).

Tippecanoe only produces Web Mercator tiles and the .mbtiles spec says reads "Only the Spherical Mercator projection is supported for presentation (tile display)". Therefore, I assume the preferred output is a MVT file.

The trouble is, I can't find any tool out there that can produce vector tiles in EPSG:4326. Does anybody know of a good way to produce a .mvt file (or a similar output format) in 4326 from a shape file?
