Overview

protoc-gen-go is a plugin for the Google protocol buffer compiler to generate Go code. Install it by building this program and making it accessible within your PATH with the name:

protoc-gen-go

The 'go' suffix becomes part of the argument for the protocol compiler, such that it can be invoked as:

protoc --go_out=paths=source_relative:. path/to/file.proto

This generates Go bindings for the protocol buffer defined by file.proto. With that input, the output will be written to:

path/to/file.pb.go
