  • The next time I want to build an API, I will probably make use of https://github.com/twitchtv/twirp. I like working with Protobuf and having strongly-typed and well-defined messages, but gRPC is way, way too much. It's obviously a Google product, built for what Google needs.

Adopting gRPC for external services might require bespoke solutions to support these features.

    The article should mention the Connect protocol for web-based Protobuf messaging:
