Functionality for building gRPC services and rpcs with lwt.

Published: 28 Oct 2022


OCaml gRPC

Pure OCaml implementation of gRPC over HTTP2.

Supported features:

  • RPCs: unary, server streaming, client streaming, bidirectional streaming

  • Client (Lwt and Async), server (Lwt only)

To get started, browse the documentation and the examples:

  • examples/greeter-{client,server}-{async,lwt} implements a basic "Hello world" service using ocaml-protoc for Protobuf serialization

  • examples/greeter-{client-tls-async,server-ssl-lwt} showcases the greeter service over a secure connection

  • examples/etcd interfaces with an external etcd server and shows how to use ocaml-protoc-plugin for Protobuf serialization


This MVP version of this library was built by @jeffa5. Andrew gratiously passed the baton to our team to develop it into a full fledged production-ready implementation.
