rpc_ts provides a hassle-free way to define APIs in TypeScript so that we can build isomorphic web applications faster.
Clean API contracts written in TypeScript. Ideal for modern isomorphic web applications.
No Domain Specific Language, no code generation, no proxy. Improve the developer experience without compromising correctness.
Based on proven technologies
Implements the gRPC-Web+json protocol.
RPC Service Definition
Type-Safe Remote Procedure Call
rpc_ts was made for the startup engineer who prioritizes time to market, readability and correctness.
rpc_ts was developed with agility first and foremost in mind. It does not explicitly address scalability or performance (although this should not be a problem, really), but helps writing Minimal Viable web apps, decreasing time to market, and improving the developer experience without compromising correctness.
rpc_ts was made for the startup engineer who recognizes that using one language is always preferable to using many, that proven technologies should be favoured over new, shiny ones, and that messing with the toolchain to enable code generation with custom DSLs (Domain-Specific Languages) is a time pit.
We believe that rpc_ts fills an important gap in the RPC ecosystem: it provides a hassle-free way to define APIs in an expressive language, TypeScript, so that we can build isomorphic applications faster. 🏖

rpc_ts is a framework for type-safe Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) in TypeScript. In this post, I'm going to compare our design to other solutions out there and go through the rationale for coming up with rpc_ts.Read more
