Convergence & gRPC

I saw that you use gRPC over http.

Can you expose gRPC service directly so I can reach out with other framework ?
Also do you plan some others clients than JS ?

Thank you very much !

We don’t actually use gRPC. gRPC doesn’t (or at least didn’t) work all the way to a browser. We ARE using Google Protocol Buffers, but over a web socket connection.

We don’t have any other clients yet, but we assumed that we would create a Java client at some point, and other clients if people are interested.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the quick reply.

gRPC is kinda protocol buffer over http 2.0. Web Socket is very standard but very difficult to manage when scaling since it’s a different protocol over http 2 or even Server Sent Event.

Maybe you can have a look at how Firebase from Google works with gRPC under the hood providing clients for every platforms, high volume streaming and low latency.

We are very familiar with gRPC. Happy to take a look again. Last time we check we found that gRPC does not work well in the WebBrowser. This is a bit old now, so we could look again:

But this roughly what we found, that it works well if you are not in the web browser.
