📦 Installation

Install trpc-browser.

# npm
npm install trpc-browser
# yarn
yarn add trpc-browser

🧩 Example usage for extensions

1. Add createChromeHandler in your background script.

// background.ts
import { initTRPC } from '@trpc/server';
import { createChromeHandler } from 'trpc-browser/adapter';

const t = initTRPC.create({
  isServer: false,
  allowOutsideOfServer: true,
});

const appRouter = t.router({
  // ...procedures
});

export type AppRouter = typeof appRouter;

createChromeHandler({
  router: appRouter /* 👈 */,
});

2. Add a chromeLink to the client in your content script.

// content.ts
import { createTRPCClient } from '@trpc/client';
import { chromeLink } from 'trpc-browser/link';

import type { AppRouter } from './background';

const port = chrome.runtime.connect();
export const chromeClient = createTRPCProxyClient<AppRouter>({
  links: [/* 👉 */ chromeLink({ port })],
});

3. (extra) If you have an injected window script, hook it up too!.

// inpage.ts
import { createTRPCProxyClient } from '@trpc/client';
import { windowLink } from 'trpc-browser/link';

import type { AppRouter } from './background';

export const windowClient = createTRPCProxyClient<AppRouter>({
  links: [/* 👉 */ windowLink({ window })],
});
// content.ts
import { relay } from 'trpc-browser/relay';

const port = chrome.runtime.connect();
relay(window, port);

🕸️ Example usage for windows

1. Add createWindowHandler in your main window.

// main.ts
import { initTRPC } from '@trpc/server';
import { createWindowHandler } from 'trpc-browser/adapter';

const t = initTRPC.create({
  isServer: false,
  allowOutsideOfServer: true,
});

const appRouter = t.router({
  // ...procedures
});

export type AppRouter = typeof appRouter;

createWindowHandler({
  router: appRouter /* 👈 */,
  window: window /* 👈 */,
});

2. Add a windowLink or popupLink to the client

import { createTRPCProxyClient } from '@trpc/client';
import { popupLink, windowLink } from 'trpc-browser/link';

import type { AppRouter } from './main';

/** iframe */
const iframeEl = document.querySelector('iframe');
export const iframeClient = createTRPCProxyClient<AppRouter>({
  links: [/* 👉 */ windowLink({ window: iframeEl.contentWindow })],
});

/** popup */
export const popupClient = createTRPCProxyClient<AppRouter>({
  links: [
    /* 👉 */ popupLink({
      listenWindow: window,
      createPopup: () => {
        const w = window.open('/example/popup', 'popup', 'width=680,height=520');
        if (!w) {
          throw new Error('Could not open popup');
        }
        return w;
      },
    }),
  ],
});
