gRPC client cli

Recently I have been working more and more with gRPC services and protocol buffers. It wouldn’t come to you as surprise that I constantly needed a tool which allows to quickly call a gRPC endpoint, something similar to Postman of Fiddler in the world of microservices.

While there definitely are some tools available for this job, I found most of them buggy and often they did not work as expected, so I decided to write my own.


grpcx is command line tool, you can download and install it via npm. It is by no measure feature complete but does the basic job well. As bonus you can use this for simple load test scenarios.

I do have plans to improve this further, and if you wanna contribute, that would be wonderful. You can find more details about it in the github readme.
