Explain in detail

rotoc -I=. /proto --go_out=. . /proto/*
protoc -I=$SRC_DIR --go_out=$DST_DIR $SRC_DIR/addressbook.proto
The file helloworld.pb.go is generated in the /proto directory
Here option go_package defines the path /proto to be imported, and -go_out also defines the path, so the final -go_out=.

-I: directory of the source file (can be omitted)
--go_out: set the output directory of the generated Go code
The last argument indicates the source file

Grpc caused an error

If option go is not added to the proto file_package = “/proto”; This industry will report the following mistakes.

protoc-gen-go: unable to determine Go import path for "proto/helloworld.proto"

Please specify either:
        • a "go_package" option in the .proto source file, or
        • a "M" argument on the command line.

See https://developers.google.com/protocol-buffers/docs/reference/go-generated#package for more information.

--go_out: protoc-gen-go: Plugin failed with status code 1.

The reason is the compatibility of different versions of protocol Gen go.


First, add option go to the proto file_package = “/proto”;

Second, the old version of proto Gen go is adopted, and the command is used to switch to V1 Version 3.2 go get – u GitHub com/golang/protobuf/protoc-gen- [email protected]
