A library for adding some usability tools for working with protobuf

Project description

Purpose

  • To ease editing and reading protocol buffer files
  • It provides easy interface to encode/decode proto files

Installation

This package can be pip installed

pip install protobuf_tools

Note

Built and tested with python 2.7 and proto 2

Usage

Python

you can import it in your library as

from protobuf_tools import proto_utils

protobuftools

To use to read/decode any proto files please use the script utility protobuftools If you do not provide the –proto_path it defaults to the working directory

##### For help use

protobuftools -h

##### To use json for decode or encode use -json flag

##### For enabling all fields to be part of decode use –allfields

##### For decoding a protobuf file to more human readable form

protobuftools “<path_to_proto_stream_file>” –proto_path “<optional - provide path to where _pb2 files are>” –decode=message_name –allfields -json

#### To display instead of writing to file

protobuftools “<path_to_proto_stream_file>” –proto_path “<optional - provide path to where _pb2 files are>” –decode=message_name –allfields -json -d

##### For encoding - To convert from json/text to protobuf file, output is a file with .protoout extension

protobuftools “<path_to_file(.json/.txt etc) from above” –proto_path “<optional - provide path to where _pb2 files are>” –encode=message_name -json
