Is this runtime?!

hkupty17:02:10

I was thinking on a macro-based alternative for known classes, but it's not the focus for my usecase...

Confluent is busy adding support for protobuf to schema registry (it's in current master) so might be interesting for #apache-kafka #jackdaw

This is incredible. The need to precompile protobuf has always been a problem for me.

dominicm17:02:48

I assume it can work on the binary form?

hkupty17:02:28

Hum, maybe we're talking about different things. This is runtime reflection on top of protobuf java objects. Is this still what you're looking for?

dominicm17:02:32

Oh. I thought it was protobuf serialization.

dominicm17:02:53

And deserialization.

hkupty17:02:03

That's not a bad idea to be honest

hkupty17:02:12

I'll look into that

dominicm17:02:12

I've always thought the compilation step and external cli is just a hindrance to the repl with it. And setup for new people joining a project.

hindol17:02:51

What kind of help wanted? This project is interesting to me.

hkupty18:02:36

Well, currently it only deals with java->clj conversion of protobuf, but @U09LZR36F gave me a brilliant idea and I'll investigate further. Feel free to fork, test, open issues or PRs. :)

Nice! About 2 years ago I wrote a small CLI to query NYC realtime subway data. I struggled my way through the protobuf support but eventually got it working. I bet this tool could help a lot!
