Protobuf toolkit for modern web development

pbkit is a collection of tools for modern web development with protocol buffers.

Getting started

To get started, make sure you have the Deno CLI installed.

Then, run the following command to install both `pb` and `pollapo` cli:

brew install pbkit/tap/pbkit

Once installed, you can use the `pollapo` command to install your protobuf schema package.

pollapo install

Now you can generate en/decode typescript code from your protobuf schema.

pb gen ts

A more in-depth getting started guide is available in the docs.

What is Protocol Buffers?

Protocol buffers are Google's language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured data – think XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler.
