D Protocol Buffers

Build Status Coverage Status DUB DUB license Stories in progress

Protocol buffers are a language-agnostic way of specifying message structures to allow communication and serialization.

dproto is designed to enable mixing protocol buffer files into your D code at compile time.

Inspiration and a good portion of the original parser is adapted from square/protoparser

Options

dproto supports altering behavior via protobuf options:

OptionMeaningExampleDefault
dproto_reserved_fmtThe format for renaming reserved D keywords as fields."%s_" will convert version to version_"%s_"

Examples

Further info

Examples can be found in import/dproto/dproto.d and in examples/.

Simple Example

import std.stdio;
import dproto.dproto;

mixin ProtocolBufferFromString!"
	message Person {
	  required string name = 1;
	  required int32 id = 2;
	  optional string email = 3;

	  enum PhoneType {
		MOBILE = 0;
		HOME = 1;
		WORK = 2;
	  }

	  message PhoneNumber {
		required string number = 1;
		optional PhoneType type = 2 [default = HOME];
	  }

	  repeated PhoneNumber phone = 4;
	}
";


int main()
{
	Person person;
	person.name = "John Doe";
	person.id = 1234;
	person.email = "jdoe@example.com";

	ubyte[] serializedObject = person.serialize();

	Person person2 = Person(serializedObject);
	writeln("Name: ", person2.name);
	writeln("E-mail: ", person2.email);
	return 0;
}

More Complex Example

import dproto.dproto;

mixin ProtocolBufferFromString!"

	  MOBILE = 0;
	  HOME = 0;
	  WORK = 2;
	}

	message Person {

	  optional string email = 3;

	  message PhoneNumber {
		required string number = 1;
		optional PhoneType type = 2 [default = HOME];
	  }

	  repeated PhoneNumber phone = 4;
	}

	message AddressBook {
	  repeated Person person = 1;
	}
";


int main()
{
	Person t;
	t.name = "Max Musterman";
	t.id = 3;

	ubyte[] serializedObject = addressbook.serialize();

Services

Generate interfaces for service definitions.

import dproto.dproto;

mixin ProtocolBufferInterface!"
	message ServiceRequest {
		string request = 1;
	}
	message ServiceResponse {
		string response = 1;
	}
	service TestService {
		rpc TestMethod (ServiceRequest) returns (ServiceResponse);
	}
";

class ServiceImplementation : TestService {
	ServiceResponse TestMethod(ServiceRequest input) {
		ServiceResponse output;
		output.response = "received: " ~ input.request;
		return output;
	}
}
