protoc-gen-go: Go compiler output filter for the protocol buffer

NAME

protoc-gen-go - Go compiler output filter for the protocol buffer compiler

SYNOPSIS

protoc
--plugin=protoc-gen-go=/usr/bin/protoc-gen-go --go_out=gocode input.proto
protoc
--go_out=gocode input.proto

DESCRIPTION

protoc-gen-go is a filter for the protoc(1) protocol buffer compiler. It takes the protocol buffer format from protoc(1) as input and produces Go code as output which can then be used to encode (marshal) and decode (unmarshal) data in the protocol buffer format specified in its input. The input is typically produced by protoc(1) by taking a .proto input file and converting it to a protocol buffer descriptor format which protoc-gen-go can then read. If protoc-gen-go can be found in the regular search path, the --plugin flag can be omitted.

OPTIONS

protoc-gen-go itself doesn't like options. All input is taken from stdin. If you use the protobuf compiler to invoke protoc-gen-go, see protoc(1) for a detailed list of all options.

AUTHOR

protoc-gen-go was mostly written by Rob Pike and David Symonds for The Go Authors.
