    Take a look at how https://github.com/fullstorydev/grpcurl works. Iirc either you depend on the protobuf files or the introspection API.

  • twirp

    A simple RPC framework with protobuf service definitions

    Project mention: Recommendations Protobuf + HTTP Service | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-06-13

    Looking at twirp as an option but seemed like previous thread don't consider it as proper gRPC but rather a competitor to it.

    Project mention: Compiling proto server side | reddit.com/r/grpc | 2022-06-28

    Yeah I don't like that as well for professional solutions I like using https://buf.build/

  • plumber

    A swiss army knife CLI tool for interacting with Kafka, RabbitMQ and other messaging systems.

    Project mention: Managing Apache Kafka Connect via Kowl | reddit.com/r/apachekafka | 2021-11-17

    Checkout https://github.com/batchcorp/plumber. You can use it to write messages into Kafka from file or text. The team that built plumber also built the platform https://batch.sh capture and replay specific messages into Kafka.

  • connect-go

    Simple, reliable, interoperable. A better gRPC.

    Project mention: Recommendations Protobuf + HTTP Service | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-06-13

    Check out https://connect.build/ as another option.

  • encoding

    Go package containing implementations of efficient encoding, decoding, and validation APIs.

    Project mention: 80x improvements in caching by moving from JSON to gob | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-04-11

    Binary formats work well for some cases but JSON is often unavoidable since it is so widely used for APIs. However, you can make it faster in golang with this https://github.com/segmentio/encoding.

  • centrifuge

    Real-time messaging library for Go with scalability in mind. The core of Centrifugo server.

    Project mention: TCP or websockets for chat server | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-11-25

    Hello, +1 to WebSockets. If you need to choose WS library – go with https://github.com/gorilla/websocket or https://github.com/gobwas/ws. You can also look at Centrifugo server (https://centrifugal.dev/, supports WebSocket, SockJS bidi transports, also EventSource, HTTP-streaming, GRPC unidirectional transports and many builtin features) or https://github.com/centrifugal/centrifuge Go library.

  • protolock

    Protocol Buffer companion tool. Track your .proto files and prevent changes to messages and services which impact API compatibility.

    Project mention: Book notes: Turn the Ship Around! | dev.to | 2022-05-04

    Protolock to prohibit incompatible changes.

  • vtprotobuf

    A Protocol Buffers compiler that generates optimized marshaling & unmarshaling Go code for ProtoBuf APIv2

    Project mention: 2022-01-11 gRPC benchmark results | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-01-12

    I ran the benchmark on my device. Vitess proto library improves ~30% req/s linearly with default config and 8 cpu client.

  • onnx-go

    onnx-go gives the ability to import a pre-trained neural network within Go without being linked to a framework or library.

  • gosercomp

    :zap: Golang Serializer Benchmark Comparison

    Project mention: Optimal dispatcher for json messages ? | reddit.com/r/golang | 2022-03-06

    Well, instead of using full GRPC, you could use ProtoBuf. Any "binary" protocol will be faster to parse than JSON, if performance is your biggest factor, you can find benchmarks comparing the different formats.

  • buildbuddy

    BuildBuddy is an open source Bazel build event viewer, result store, remote caching, and remote build execution platform.

  • rules_proto

    Bazel build rules for protobuf / gRPC (now with gazelle)

    Project mention: Buf raises $93M to deprecate REST/JSON | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-12-08

    `proto_library` for building the `.bin` file from protos works great. Generating stubs/messages for "all" languages does not. Each language does not want to implement gRPC rules, the gRPC team does not want to implement rules for each language. Sort of a deadlock situation. For example:

    - C++: https://github.com/grpc/grpc/blob/master/bazel/cc_grpc_libra...

    - Python: https://github.com/grpc/grpc/blob/master/bazel/python_rules....

    - ObjC: https://github.com/grpc/grpc/blob/master/bazel/objc_grpc_lib...

    - Java: https://github.com/grpc/grpc-java/blob/master/java_grpc_libr...

    - Go (different semantics than all of the other): https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_go/blob/master/proto/def...

    But there's also no real cohesion within the community. The biggest effort to date has been in https://github.com/stackb/rules_proto which integrates with gazelle.

    tl;dr: Low alignment results in diverging implementations that are complicated to understand for newcomers. Buff's approach is much more appealing as it's a "this is the one way to do the right thing" and having it just work by detecting `proto_library` and doing all of the linting/registry stuff automagically in CI would be fantastic.

  • casbin-server

    Casbin as a Service (CaaS)

    Project mention: Why Authorization Is Hard | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-09-15

    casbin is super flexible and it support many models[1]


  • goflow2

    High performance sFlow/IPFIX/NetFlow Collector

    Project mention: Announcing open source Netflow collector | reddit.com/r/networking | 2022-07-04

    I'd suggest looking at goflow2 before you write something new.
