  • Deno-first implementation of protobuf Reader and Writer
    2 projects | /r/Deno | 3 May 2023
    I created it so that I could use `protoc` and `ts-proto` to convert the otel proto files into typescript files.
  • Is TypeScript actually worth It?

    Re libraries incompatible with certain typescript versions - e.g. protobufjs fix - it’s been my experience that you want to try and only use compilers specific to each library and compile libraries separately. It’s unfortunate but the JS community often tries to run all JS for a project through the same single compiler tool chain, using one global version of the compiler instead of relying on and effectively linking the JS output for each library. Unless you routinely rewrite third-party libraries to match your toolchain’s expectations, you’re going to have a hard time doing that.

    For a library that generates code, that’s a special case, as the code it generates must target a particular language version. You have three choices: 1. Upstream a fix as you propose; 2. Side-by-side install both TS 4.6 and TS 4.7 using workspaces or sub-projects and have some of your code compile with 4.6 and then link the results or 3. Find a replacement that is updated to 4.7. For example, https://github.com/stephenh/ts-proto has 4.7 support listed in its readme.

  • [help] Tonic-build: how to generate generic service definition?
    4 projects | /r/rust | 13 Jun 2022
    With ts-proto, I can pass a --ts_proto_opt=outputServices=generic-definitions as a flag to protoc to generate "generic service definitions". These definitions contain descriptors for each method, which allows to generate server and client stubs at runtime, and also generate strong types for them at compile time.
  • Connect: A Better gRPC
    10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 1 Jun 2022
    Curious to see their typescript implementation and how it compares with https://github.com/stephenh/ts-proto which works great for grpc-web.
  • Why isn't gRPC used more for browser to api transport over REST / graphql?
    8 projects | /r/webdev | 2 Apr 2022
    I'm planning on modding https://github.com/stephenh/ts-proto to use https://github.com/ianstormtaylor/superstruct on the client.
  • React Native + gRPC 2021
    2 projects | /r/reactnative | 14 Apr 2021
    We also use protobufs and typescript, so we use ts-proto for codegen + binding to grpc services.
  • Typescript clients for invoking Protobuf services over HTTP
    2 projects | /r/typescript | 13 Mar 2021
    Fwiw I maintain ts-proto (https://github.com/stephenh/ts-proto/) and it'd be cool to have the functionality you're building supported in ts-proto at somepoint, if you're curious/want to poke around/etc. :-) Right now there is grpc support via the improbable-eng grpcwebproxy, but supporting GCP's transcoding as well would be great.
