Package descriptor

Overview ▾

Package descriptor provides functions for obtaining protocol buffer descriptors for generated Go types.

These functions cannot go in package proto because they depend on the generated protobuf descriptor messages, which themselves depend on proto.

func ForMessage

func ForMessage(msg Message) (fd *protobuf.FileDescriptorProto, md *protobuf.DescriptorProto)

ForMessage returns a FileDescriptorProto and a DescriptorProto from within it describing the given message.

type Message

Message is a proto.Message with a method to return its descriptor.

Message types generated by the protocol compiler always satisfy the Message interface.

type Message interface {
    Descriptor() ([]byte, []int)
