DVote Protobuf

Protobuf definitions for messages and services used by the Vocdoni open stack.

Check out the source code generated for each of the available languages.

Important note

  • In protobuf, new fields can be added, renamed and removed with future-compatibility.
  • However, once an ID has been used, it can't never be reused by any other field again

Get started

In order to be able to build this project, you need some dependencies in your machine:

  • go for the go bindings
  • dart for the dart bindings
  • npm & node for the ts bindings
  • build essentials like make

If protoc is installed in the host system, it will be used by default. To force installing protoc, set PROTOC variable to blank: PROTOC= make <action>

To install protoc and the plugins for Dart, Go and TS:

$ make init

Or optionally:

$ make protoc/bin/protoc
$ make protoc-dart-plugin
$ make protoc-ts-plugin
$ make protoc-go-plugin

Then, run make all to build all the targets

Available models

  • client-store
    • Data types used for client apps to store local data
  • common
    • Types shared across many components
  • metadata
    • Human readable data for organizations, governance processes, news feeds, etc.
  • vochain
    • Specific data types for the Vocdoni Vochain

Build

  • Build DART models: make dart
  • Build JS/TS models: make ts
  • Build GoLang models: make golang

Develop / Release

See DEVELOPING.md

Artifacts

Import the files from:

  • build/dart/*
  • go-vocdonitypes/*

Usage

Typescript/Nodejs

You can either import things from the main package or from the individual exports

const { Vochain } = require('@vocdoni/proto')
// this is the same as
const Vochain = require('@vocdoni/proto/vochain')

Using the individual exports is useful if you want to import only a specific part and not the entire bundle. It's also less boilerplate, since you can directly access the types without having to use the required namespace:

import { TxType } from '@vocdoni/proto/vochain'
// this is the same as

import { Vochain } from '@vocdoni/proto'
const { TxType } = Vochain

Note: required namespaces can be Vochain, Metadata and ClientStore. Named exports are dashed: vochain, metadata and client-store.
