Hi all,

I'm pleased to introduce Tilemaker, a command-line utility for making 
vector tiles directly from .osm.pbf planet extracts.

The aim is to make vector tiles hackable for the independent 
cartographer or developer, without the need to set up a database or 
complex stack to marshal your data.

You can read more about it here:
