Hi,
Is there posibilities to load geoservers vector tiles in mapsforge? It rpovides MVT pbf formats but I have no idea if we can use them in VTM?

If they provide vector tiles in the known formats, then can be decoded by VTM and be rendered with available map styles..

Though probably would need to create the proper request according to what the server expects for input, in order to produce the vector tiles as output.

Probably mean VTM (not Mapsforge).

Need to study carefully library API to see how it works and can be extended with new providers.

Hi,
What is missing to integrate the Geoserver source?

Thanks

You may need a custom tile source to translate the GeoServer into valid tiles to be rendered with this map library.

osmdroid-wms has an implementation, you can study and customize it.
