Protocol Buffers for Go with Gadgets

Travis CI Matrix Builds: Build Status

Getting Started (Give me the speed I don't care about the rest)

Install the protoc-gen-gofast binary

go get github.com/maditya/protobuf/protoc-gen-gofast

Use it to generate faster marshaling and unmarshaling go code for your protocol buffers.

protoc --gofast_out=. myproto.proto

Getting started (I have heard about fields without pointers and more code generation)

Other binaries are also included:

protoc-gen-gogofast (same as gofast, but imports gogoprotobuf)
protoc-gen-gogofaster (same as gogofast, without XXX_unrecognized, less pointer fields)
protoc-gen-gogoslick (same as gogofaster, but with generated string, gostring and equal methods)

Getting started (I want more customization power over fields, speed, other serialization formats and tests, etc.)

Please visit the homepage for more documentation.

Installation

To install it, you must first have Go (at least version 1.3.3) installed (see http://golang.org/doc/install). Go 1.3.3, 1.4.2, 1.5.3 and 1.6 are continiuosly tested.

Next, install the standard protocol buffer implementation from https://github.com/google/protobuf. Most versions from 2.3.1 should not give any problems, but 2.5.0, 2.6.1 and 3 alpha are continuously tested.

Finally run:

go get github.com/maditya/protobuf/proto
go get github.com/maditya/protobuf/protoc-gen-gogo
go get github.com/maditya/protobuf/gogoproto

Proto3

Proto3 is supported, but most of the new native types are not supported yet. See Proto3 Issue for more details.

GRPC

It works the same as golang/protobuf, simply specify the plugin. Here is an example using gofast:

protoc --gofast_out=plugins=grpc:. my.proto
