About The Project

Automatically generate fully implemented tRPC routers from your Prisma Schema. This includes routers, app router and of course all input schemas using Zod. Updates every time npx prisma generate runs.

Supported Prisma Versions

Prisma 4

  • 0.2.0 and higher

Prisma 2/3

  • 0.1.12 and lower

Supported tRPC Versions

tRPC 10

  • 0.8.0 and higher

tRPC 9

  • 0.7.2 and lower


Using npm:

 npm install prisma-trpc-generator

Using yarn:

 yarn add prisma-trpc-generator


1- Star this repo 😉

2- Add the generator to your Prisma schema

generator trpc {
  provider          = "prisma-trpc-generator"
  withZod           = true
  withMiddleware    = false
  withShield        = false
  contextPath       = "../src/context"
  trpcOptionsPath   = "../src/trpcOptions"

3- Enable strict mode in tsconfig as it is required by Zod, and considered a Typescript best practice

  "compilerOptions": {
    "strict": true

4- Running npx prisma generate for the following schema.prisma

model User {
  id    Int     @id @default(autoincrement())
  email String  @unique
  name  String?
  posts Post[]

model Post {
  id        Int      @id @default(autoincrement())
  createdAt DateTime @default(now())
  updatedAt DateTime @updatedAt
  title     String
  content   String?
  published Boolean  @default(false)
  viewCount Int      @default(0)
  author    User?    @relation(fields: [authorId], references: [id])
  authorId  Int?

will generate

tRPC Routers

5- Make sure you have a valid Context file, as specified in contextPath option. The official Context for reference.

6- Optionally, you can specify a trpcOptionsPath to set various tRPC options (like transformer, error formatter, etc). Find about all possible options here.

import { ZodError } from 'zod';

export default {
  errorFormatter({ shape, error }) {
    return {
      data: {,
          error.code === 'BAD_REQUEST' && error.cause instanceof ZodError
            ? error.cause.flatten()
            : null,


Skipping entire models

/// @@Gen.model(hide: true)
model User {
  id    Int     @id @default(autoincrement())
  email String  @unique
  name  String?

Additional Options

Option Description Type Default
output Output directory for the generated routers and zod schemas string ./generated
withMiddleware Attaches a global middleware that runs before all procedures boolean or string true
output Output directory for the generated routers and zod schemas string ./generated
withZod Use Zod for input validation boolean true
withShield Generates a tRPC Shield to use as a permissions layer boolean or string true
contextPath Sets the context path used in your routers string ../../../../src/context
trpcOptionsPath Sets the tRPC instance options string ../../../../src/trpcOptions
isGenerateSelect Enables the generation of Select related schemas and the select property boolean false
isGenerateInclude Enables the generation of Include related schemas and the include property boolean false
showModelNameInProcedure When disabled, the generated procedure no longer includes the name of the Prisma model boolean true
generateModelActions Enables the generation of specific model actions string aggregate,aggregateRaw,count,create,createMany,delete,deleteMany,findFirst,findFirstOrThrow,findMany,findRaw,findUnique,findUniqueOrThrow,groupBy,update,updateMany,upsert

Use additional options in the schema.prisma

generator trpc {
  provider           = "prisma-trpc-generator"
  output             = "./trpc"
  withMiddleware     = "../middleware"
  withZod            = false
  withShield         = false
  contextPath        = "../context"
  trpcOptionsPath    = "../trpcOptions"
  isGenerateSelect   = true
  isGenerateInclude  = true
  showModelNameInProcedure  = false
  generateModelActions = "aggregate,aggregateRaw,count,create,createMany,delete,deleteMany,findFirst,findFirstOrThrow,findMany,findRaw,findUnique,findUniqueOrThrow,groupBy,update,updateMany,upsert"
