drpc_dweb

Simple RPC with Protobuf Services

npm install drpc_dweb

Usage

First define an RPC service

message Echo {
  required string value = 1;
}

service Example {
  rpc Echo (Echo) returns (Echo) {}
}

Then compile it using the drpc_dweb compiler

npm install -g drpc_dweb
drpc_dweb services.proto --rpc=rpc.js --messages=rpc-messages.js
npm install --save drpc_dweb-runtime # make sure to add this to your package.json

That's it!

The above produces two files, rpc.js and rpc-messages.js. Now you can run an RPC server and client like so:

const MyRPC = require('./rpc')

// a server
const server = MyRPC.createServer(function (client) {
  client.example.onRequest({
    async echo ({ value }) {
      return { value: 'echo: ' + value }
    }
  })
})

await server.listen('/tmp/test.sock')

// a client
const client = MyRPC.connect('/tmp/test.sock')

const { value } = await client.example.echo({ value: 'hello world!'})
console.log(value) // 'echo: hello world'

The client object in the server and that's returned from connect implements the same API so you can handle requests in both the server and client, depending on your needs!

To destroy a client do:

client.destroy()

And to close a server and all open connections do:

await server.close()

If your request handler throws an error it is forward to the client using the following schema

message RPCError {
  required string message = 1;
  optional string code = 2;
  optional int32 errno = 3;
  optional string details = 4;
}

And if your rpc method does not return a value you can use the Void type in the definition.
