We have an application written in GoLang and we are using GRPC for defining service contracts.
When we try to run "go generate" command to generate stub from proto file it gives following error:
main.go:4: running "protoc": exec: "protoc": executable file not found in $PATH
Command format in code:
//go:generate protoc -I . --go-grpc_out=. --go_out=. ./proto/service.proto
- I have already installed protoc-gen-go and protoc-gen-go-grpc
- Tried to search for the above error but haven’t been able to find a solution yet.
protoc-gen-go-grpc are plugins for
protoc. You need to install the
protoc (the Protobuf compiler) itself, as explained in Go gRPC – Prerequisites.
See protobuf – Releases page for a download.
On a Mac can just use
brew install protobuf.
