NOTE: move echoclient.go inside a folder, otherwise there will be two main programs in the same packgae

System Req:

  # Instructions for Mac OS
  # You can find similar package for your OS
  brew install protobuf # protocol buffer compiler; protoc
  brew install protoc-gen-grpc-web # protoc plugin that generates code for gRPC-Web clients
  brew install grpcurl # curl for gRPC servers

Download Deps:

  go mod download

Compile Proto:

  protoc -I ./ *.proto --go_out=. --go-grpc_out=. 
  # generates compiled files in protos dir

Run server:

  go run .

Use grpcurl to test:

  grpcurl --plaintext -d '{"Text": "Hellp Grpc"}' localhost:9000 Echo.Hello

Run the client:

  # Inside the folder where you put echoclient.go
  go run echoclient.go
