tinyrpc is a high-performance RPC framework based on protocol buffer encoding. It is based on net/rpc and supports multiple compression formats (gzip, snappy, zlib).

Install

go install github.com/golang/protobuf/protoc-gen-go
go install github.com/zehuamama/tinyrpc/protoc-gen-tinyrpc

Quick Start

Fisrt, create a demo and import the tinyrpc package:

> go mod init demo
> go get github.com/zehuamama/tinyrpc

under the path of the project, create a protobuf file arith.proto:

syntax = "proto3";

package message;
option go_package="/message";

// ArithService Defining Computational Digital Services
service ArithService {
  // Add addition
  rpc Add(ArithRequest) returns (ArithResponse);
  // Sub subtraction
  rpc Sub(ArithRequest) returns (ArithResponse);
  // Mul multiplication
  rpc Mul(ArithRequest) returns (ArithResponse);
  // Div division
  rpc Div(ArithRequest) returns (ArithResponse);
}

message ArithRequest {
  int32 a = 1;
  int32 b = 2;
}

message ArithResponse {
  int32 c = 1;
}

an arithmetic operation service is defined here, using protoc to generate code:

> protoc --tinyrpc_out=. arith.proto --go_out=. arith.proto

at this time, two files will be generated in the directory message: arith.pb.go and arith.svr.go

the code of arith.svr.go is shown below:

// Code generated by protoc-gen-tinyrpc.

package message

// ArithService Defining Computational Digital Services
type ArithService struct{}

// Add addition
func (this *ArithService) Add(args *ArithRequest, reply *ArithResponse) error {
	// define your service ...
	return nil
}

// Sub subtraction
func (this *ArithService) Sub(args *ArithRequest, reply *ArithResponse) error {
	// define your service ...
	return nil
}

// Mul multiplication
func (this *ArithService) Mul(args *ArithRequest, reply *ArithResponse) error {
	// define your service ...
	return nil
}

// Div division
func (this *ArithService) Div(args *ArithRequest, reply *ArithResponse) error {
	// define your service ...
	return nil
}

we need to define our services.

Finally, under the path of the project, we create a file named main.go, the code is shown below:

package main

import (
	"demo/message"
	"log"
	"net"

	"github.com/zehuamama/tinyrpc"
)

func main() {
	lis, err := net.Listen("tcp", ":8082")
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}

	server := tinyrpc.NewServer()
	server.RegisterName("ArithService", new(message.ArithService))
	server.Serve(lis)
}

a tinyrpc server is completed.

Client

We can create a tinyrpc client and call it synchronously with the Add function:

import (
        "demo/message"
	"github.com/zehuamama/tinyrpc"
...

conn, err := net.Dial("tcp", ":8082")
if err != nil {
	log.Fatal(err)
}
defer conn.Close()
client := tinyrpc.NewClient(conn)
resq := message.ArithRequest{A: 20, B: 5}
resp := message.ArithResponse{}
err = client.Call("ArithService.Add", &resq, &resp)
log.Printf("Arith.Add(%v, %v): %v ,Error: %v", resq.A, resq.B, resp.C, err)

you can also call asynchronously, which will return a channel of type *rpc.Call:

result := client.AsyncCall("ArithService.Add", &resq, &resp)
select {
case call := <-result:
	log.Printf("Arith.Add(%v, %v): %v ,Error: %v", resq.A, resq.B, resp.C, call.Error)
case <-time.After(100 * time.Microsecond):
	log.Fatal("time out")
}

of course, you can also compress with three supported formats gzip, snappy, zlib:

import "github.com/zehuamama/tinyrpc/compressor"

...
client := tinyrpc.NewClient(conn, tinyrpc.WithCompress(compressor.Gzip))

Custom Serializer

If you want to customize the serializer, you must implement the Serializer interface:

type Serializer interface {
	Marshal(message interface{}) ([]byte, error)
	Unmarshal(data []byte, message interface{}) error
}

JsonSerializer is a serializer based Json:

type JsonSerializer struct{}

func (_ JsonSerializer) Marshal(message interface{}) ([]byte, error) {
	return json.Marshal(message)
}

func (_ JsonSerializer) Unmarshal(data []byte, message interface{}) error {
	return json.Unmarshal(data, message)
}

moving on, we create a HelloService with the following code:

type HelloRequest struct {
	Req string `json:"req"`
}

type HelloResponce struct {
	Resp string `json:"resp"`
}

type HelloService struct{}

func (_ *HelloService) SayHello(args *HelloRequest, reply *HelloResponce) error {
	reply.Resp = args.Req
	return nil
}

finally, we need to set the serializer on the rpc server:

func main() {
	lis, err := net.Listen("tcp", ":8082")
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}

	server := tinyrpc.NewServer(tinyrpc.WithSerializer(JsonSerializer{}))
	server.Register(new(HelloService))
	server.Serve(lis)
}

a rpc server based on json serializer is completed.

Remember that when the rpc client calls the service, it also needs to set the serializer:

tinyrpc.NewClient(conn,tinyrpc.WithSerializer(JsonSerializer{}))
