gRPC in 3 minutes (PHP)


This requires php >=5.5, phpize, pecl, phpunit


  • Install the gRPC PHP extension

    $ [sudo] pecl install grpc
  • Clone this repository

    $ git clone -b $(curl -L https://grpc.io/release) https://github.com/grpc/grpc
  • Install composer

    $ cd examples/php
    $ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
    $ php composer.phar install


  • Run the server

    Please follow the instruction in Node to run the server

    $ cd examples/node
    $ npm install
    $ cd dynamic_codegen or cd static_codegen
    $ node greeter_server.js
  • Generate proto files and run the client

    $ cd examples/php
    $ ./greeter_proto_gen.sh
    $ ./run_greeter_client.sh


This directory has a copy of helloworld.proto because it currently depends on some Protocol Buffer 2.0 syntax. There is no proto3 support for PHP yet.
