Protocol Buffers for Swift

Build Status Carthage compatible Version Platform

An implementation of Protocol Buffers in Swift.

Protocol Buffers are a way of encoding structured data in an efficient yet extensible format. This project is based on an implementation of Protocol Buffers from Google. See the Google protobuf project for more information.

let person = personBuilder.build()
let jsonData = person.toJSON() //return NSData

Deserializing

var person = Person.parseFromData(bytes) // from NSData

Using Oneof

syntax = "proto3";
message SubMessage {

Nested Types

Packages

syntax = "proto2";
package FooBar;

  optional string description = 7;
}
public extension FooBar {
  ...
  final public class Perfomance : GeneratedMessage, GeneratedMessageProtocol {
    ...
  }

}

Custom Options

import "google/protobuf/descriptor.proto";

package google.protobuf;

enum AccessControl {
  InternalEntities = 0;
  PublicEntities = 1;
}
message SwiftFileOptions {

  optional string class_prefix = 1;
  optional AccessControl entities_access_control = 2 [default = PublicEntities];
  optional bool compile_for_framework = 3 [default = true];
}

message SwiftMessageOptions {
  optional bool generate_error_type = 1 [default = false];
}

message SwiftEnumOptions {
  optional bool generate_error_type = 1 [default = false];
}

extend google.protobuf.FileOptions {
  optional SwiftFileOptions swift_file_options = 5092014;
}

extend google.protobuf.MessageOptions {
  optional SwiftMessageOptions swift_message_options = 5092014;
}

extend google.protobuf.EnumOptions {
  optional SwiftEnumOptions swift_enum_options = 5092015;
}

option (.google.protobuf.swift_file_options).compile_for_framework = false;
option (.google.protobuf.swift_file_options).entities_access_control = PublicEntities;

At now protobuf-swift's compiler is supporting custom options.

  1. Class Prefix
  2. Access Control
  3. Error Types
  4. Compile for framework

If you have use custom options, you need to add:

import 'google/protobuf/swift-descriptor.proto';

in your .proto files.

Class prefix

This option needs to generate class names with prefix.

Example:

import 'google/protobuf/swift-descriptor.proto';

option (.google.protobuf.swift_file_options).class_prefix = "Proto";

message NameWithPrefix
{
  optional string str = 1;
}

Generated class has a name:

final internal class ProtoNameWithPrefix : GeneratedMessage

Access control

option (.google.protobuf.swift_file_options).entities_access_control = PublicEntities;

All generated classes marks as internal by default. If you want mark as public, you can use entities_access_control option.

option (.google.protobuf.swift_file_options).entities_access_control = PublicEntities;

message MessageWithCustomOption
{
  optional string str = 1;
}

Generated class and all fields are marked a public:

final public class MessageWithCustomOption : GeneratedMessage

Generate enum/message conforming to "Error" protocol

option (.google.protobuf.swift_enum_options).generate_error_type = true;

Example


import 'google/protobuf/swift-descriptor.proto';

enum ServiceError {
  option (.google.protobuf.swift_enum_options).generate_error_type = true;
  BadRequest = 0;
  InternalServerError = 1;
}

message UserProfile {
    message Request {
        required string userId = 1;
    }
    message Response {
        optional UserProfile profile = 1;
        optional ServiceError error = 2;
        optional Exception exception = 3;
    }

     message Exception {
        option (.google.protobuf.swift_message_options).generate_error_type = true;
        required int32 errorCode = 1;
        required string errorDescription = 2;
    }
    
    optional string firstName = 1;
    optional string lastName = 2;
    optional string avatarUrl = 3;
}
public enum ServiceError:Error, RawRepresentable, CustomDebugStringConvertible, CustomStringConvertible {
  public typealias RawValue = Int32

  case badRequest
  case internalServerError

  public init?(rawValue: RawValue) {
    switch rawValue {
    case 0: self = .badRequest
    case 1: self = .internalServerError
    default: return nil
    }
  }

  public var rawValue: RawValue {
    switch self {
    case .badRequest: return 0
    case .internalServerError: return 1
    }
  }

  public func throwException() throws {
    throw self
  }

  public var debugDescription:String { return getDescription() }
  public var description:String { return getDescription() }
  private func getDescription() -> String { 
    switch self {
    case .badRequest: return ".badRequest"
    case .internalServerError: return ".internalServerError"
    }
  }
}
func generateException()throws {
    let user = UserProfile.Response.Builder()
    user.error = .internalServerError
    let data = try user.build().data()
    let userError = try UserProfile.Response.parseFrom(data:data)
    if userError.hasError {
        throw userError.error //userError.error.throwException()
    }
}

do {
    try generateException()
} catch let err as ServiceError where err == .internalServerError {
    XCTAssertTrue(true)
} catch {
    XCTAssertTrue(false)
}

func throwExceptionMessage() throws {
  let exception = UserProfile.Exception.Builder()
  exception.errorCode = 403
  exception.errorDescription = "Bad Request"
  let exc = try exception.build()
  let data = try UserProfile.Response.Builder().setException(exc).build().data()
  let userError = try UserProfile.Response.parseFrom(data:data)
  if userError.hasException {
      throw userError.exception
  }
}

do {
    try throwExceptionMessage()
} catch let err as UserProfile.Exception {
    print(err)
    XCTAssertTrue(true)
} catch {
    XCTAssertTrue(false)
}
  

Compile for framework

option (.google.protobuf.swift_file_options).compile_for_framework = false;

This option deletes the string import ProtocolBuffers of the generated files.

If you will need some other options, write me. I will add them.

Utilities (ProtocolBuffers 3.0)

Added well-known type protos (any.proto, empty.proto, timestamp.proto, duration.proto, etc.). Users can import and use these protos just like regular proto files. Addtional runtime support will be added for them in future releases (in the form of utility helper functions, or having them replaced by language specific types in generated code).

Any

message Any {
  // A URL/resource name whose content describes the type of the
  // serialized message.
  //
  // For URLs which use the schema `http`, `https`, or no schema, the
  // following restrictions and interpretations apply:
  //
  // * If no schema is provided, `https` is assumed.
  // * The last segment of the URL's path must represent the fully
  //   qualified name of the type (as in `path/google.protobuf.Duration`).
  // * An HTTP GET on the URL must yield a [google.protobuf.Type][google.protobuf.Type]
  //   value in binary format, or produce an error.
  // * Applications are allowed to cache lookup results based on the
  //   URL, or have them precompiled into a binary to avoid any
  //   lookup. Therefore, binary compatibility needs to be preserved
  //   on changes to types. (Use versioned type names to manage
  //   breaking changes.)
  //
  // Schemas other than `http`, `https` (or the empty schema) might be
  // used with implementation specific semantics.
  //
  // Types originating from the `google.*` package
  // namespace should use `type.googleapis.com/full.type.name` (without
  // schema and path). A type service will eventually become available which
  // serves those URLs (projected Q2/15).

  // is omitted, it defaults to zero. If the entire version field is
  // empty, the major version is derived from the package name, as
  // outlined below. If the field is not empty, the version in the
  // package name will be verified to be consistent with what is
  // provided here.
  //
  // The versioning schema uses [semantic
  // versioning](http://semver.org) where the major version number
  // indicates a breaking change and the minor version an additive,
  // non-breaking change. Both version numbers are signals to users
  // what to expect from different versions, and should be carefully
  // chosen based on the product plan.
  //
  // The major version is also reflected in the package name of the
  // API, which must end in `v<major-version>`, as in
  // `google.feature.v1`. For major versions 0 and 1, the suffix can
  // be omitted. Zero major versions must only be used for
  // experimental, none-GA apis.
