i tried but you can't set zoom levels/precision with wfs [1] and geojson [2].

interesting. i tried gdal2tiles but it creates raster not vector tiles.

interesting. i found these-
https://github.com/nextgis/QTiles (creates raster tiles)
https://github.com/minorua/TileLayerPlugin (creates raster tiles)
https://github.com/matakuka/gridsplitter (saves output in .shp that i
can convert to geojson, but it doesn't follow the standard x/y/z)
