Codegeneration tool for isomorphic server and mobile Go apps with gRPC & Protobuf. Share code between your backend, Android & iOS app!
Anakin takes care about some routine tasks and helps to create shared code between client (mobile apps) & server app written in Go and backed by gRPC & Protobuf. So, how it works?
At the first stage, it just generates from your
*.proto (with defined service, RPC-calls & allowed messages) main gRPC-file
*.pb.go which may be used by any Go app. It uses
Next Anakin parses
*.proto-file to extract RPC-methods and messages, takes templates for client and server & generates similar Go code. After that it builds binaries for Android (
*.aar) and iOS (
Mobile binaries build stage may fail by different reasons and you may want to go back again later when environment will be ready. Also you can ignore build stage if you want to make some changes in generated code. Anyway Anakin has another
anakin-build script inside for this purpose, which automatically copied for generated
$YOUR_OUTPUT/client directory with other source files when you run original
Go 1.5 and higher.
Xcode Command Line Tools (Mac OS X only, will be installed if needed).
Android SDK (if Android build is needed).
