    Now let’s take a look at the source code of the protoc-gen-go plugin:

    Wait, you say, in Go you can embed a struct with default method implementations to "inherit" them in your composed struct... sure, except any methods called by those methods are early-bound in the original struct, completely ignoring your wrapper, so the best you can do is "not implemented" rather than actually implement something. It is at least a way to prevent semver-major breakage, which the gRPC generator uses, but that's about as far as it gets you.
  • 2022-01-11 gRPC benchmark results

    Seems like go is pretty middle of the road. I can only guess as to why but it probably has to do with heavy usage of pointers and reflection which are much slower than other implementations. Gogo/protobuf (RIP) solved this performance with code generation, but the the official go protobuf implementation has essentially eschewed it. I do wonder how the benchmark would look using the new vitess proto library for Go (which has many of the benefits of gogo but with active development and an API built on top of the Google one)

  • A new ProtoBuf generator for Go
    7 projects | | 3 Jun 2021
    Maybe I'm missing something, but my read of [golang/protobuf#364]( was that the re-organization in protobuf-go v2 was allow for optimizations like gogoprotobuf to be developed without requiring a complete fork. I totally understand that the authors of gogoprotobuf do not have the time to re-architect their library to use these hooks, but best I can figure this generator does not use these hooks either. Instead it defines additional member functions, and wrappers that look for those specialized functions and fallback to the generic ones if not found.

    I am thinking about stuff like the [ProtoMethods]([email protected]/reflec...) API.

    I wonder why not? Did the authors of the vtprotobuf extension not want to bite off that much work? Is the new API not sufficient to do what they want (thus failing some of the goals expressed in golang/protobuf#364?

    In this case try approach with line by line generation. Very much like what protoc-gen-go does for Go code:, need to implement this kind of generator yourself.

    The difference to the client-server solution is subtile when it comes to the details in implementation. protoc-gen-go and other plugins in the Protocol Buffers ecosystem use this approach.
