Connect-Swift has launched!You'll actually want to use Protobuf on iOS - generate idiomatic, modern Swift client APIs.
Get Started

The BSR is built around the open-source Buf CLI

Simplify your Protocol Buffers workflow.
Get started
CLI
The Buf CLI is a one stop shop for your local Protocol Buffers needs
Unifying the best of the proto/gRPC ecosystem, and filling the major gaps.
Local generation
No more bash script hacking for the most basic Protocol Buffers generation tasks
Use simple, well documented yaml configurations to generate code from your API locally. Without having to fiddle with arcane protoc invocations.
Local generation
Linting
Stop having code review arguments over the best way to build an API
With Buf's comprehensive lint categories, easily configure which lint checks you want to enable on your source.
Linting
Breaking change detection
Discover incompatibilities before you push, not during an outage
Simply prevent other teams from breaking your API.

Buf builds with your needs in mind
Tools having breaking changes is not acceptable.
Quality software that will stand the test of time is table stakes.
Tooling must work for all workflows, not just bazel/blaze.
Tooling shouldn't need additional infrastructure engineers to manage it.
