Generated code reference

This documentation lists the functions generated with each Elixir structure associated to a protobuf message or enum.

Messages

Encode

@spec encode(struct) :: {:ok, iodata} | {:error, any}
encode(msg)

Encode msg into an iodata suitable for files or sockets. Returns {:ok, iodata} when the encoding was successful and {:error, description} in case of an encoding error.

@spec encode!(struct) :: iodata | no_return
encode!(msg)

Throwing version of encode/1.

Decode

@spec decode(binary) :: {:ok, struct} | {:error, any}
decode(data)

Decode binary data into an structure with the type of the module on which this function is called. Returns {:ok, msg} when the decoding was successful and {:error, description} in case of an decoding error.

@spec decode!(binary) :: struct | no_return
decode!(data)

Throwing version of decode/1.

Syntax

@spec syntax() :: atom
syntax()

Get the syntax of the protobuf message: :proto2 or :proto3.

Default values

@spec default(atom) :: {:ok, boolean | integer | String.t() | binary | float} | {:error, atom}
default(field_name)

Get the default value of a message field. Note that for Protobuf 3, the default value is mandated by the Google reference documentation.

Unknown fields

Note: these functions are not available when the option :keep_unknown_fields is set to false.

@spec clear_unknown_fields(struct) :: struct
clear_unknown_fields(msg)

Returns a copy of msg with all unknown fields removed.

@spec unknown_fields(struct) :: [{non_neg_integer, Protox.Types.tag(), binary}]
unknown_fields(msg)

Get the unknown fields that may have been encountered when decoding data. See Types section to get a description of Protox.Types.tag.

@spec unknown_fields_name() :: atom
unknown_fields_name(msg)

Get the name of the field that stores unknown fields.

Required fields

@spec required_fields() :: [atom]
required_fields()

Get the list of required fields.

Enums

@spec default() :: atom
default()

Get the default value of an enum.

@spec encode(atom) :: integer | atom
encode(enum_entry)

Get the integer value of an enum entry. If enum_entry does not exist in the enum, it is returned as is.

@spec decode(integer) :: atom | integer
decode(value)

Get the enum entry of an integer value. If value does not correpond to any entry in the enum, it is returned as is.

@spec constants() :: [{integer, atom}]
constants()

Get the list of all the constants of the enum that correponds to the module on which this function has been called.
