If you are familiar with the use of Protocol Bufffers (protobuf) and gRPC, you can skip this page.

If you are interested in a deeper dive into Protocol Buffers, check out the official documentation.

In short, protobuf messages define types that can then be generated into any programming language. This allows for a common interface between different languages and platforms and saves time by automatically generating code for message serialization and deserialization and API client/server code.

The Steward API is defined by a protobuf package and can be used with a gRPC client. Strategists must generate proto bindings and a client from the Steward API protobuf files for their preferred language using the protoc compiler or buf.

Please feel free to reach out to the Sommelier team for assistance with generating the necessary bindings in your language of choice if required.
