ServiceModel.Grpc enables applications to communicate with gRPC services using a code-first approach (no .proto files), helps to get around limitations of gRPC protocol like "only reference types", "exact one input", "no nulls", "no value-types". Provides exception handling. Helps to migrate existing WCF solution to gRPC with minimum effort.

ServiceModel.Grpc.Client.DependencyInjection provides client extensions for Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection and Grpc.Net.ClientFactory packages.

Declare a service contract

A service contract is an interface decorated with the ServiceContract attribute. Interface methods decorated with the OperationContract attribute are treated as gRPC operations.

For example, following ICalculator contract with unary Sum operation and client streaming MultiplyBy operation:

public interface ICalculator
    Task<long> Sum(long x, int y, int z, CancellationToken token = default);

    ValueTask<(int Multiplier, IAsyncEnumerable<int> Values)> MultiplyBy(IAsyncEnumerable<int> values, int multiplier, CancellationToken token = default);

Configure Grpc.Net.ClientFactory registrations

After registering a gRPC service client by the generic AddGrpcClient method, configure Grpc.Net.ClientFactory to use ServiceModel.Grpc creator:

IServiceCollection services = ...

    // Grpc.Net.ClientFactory registration
    .AddGrpcClient<ICalculator>(options =>
        options.Address = new Uri("https://localhost:5001");
    // use ServiceModel.Grpc creator
    .ConfigureServiceModelGrpcClientCreator<ICalculator>((options, serviceProvider) =>
        options.MarshallerFactory = ...
        options.ErrorHandler = ...

The gRPC service client is registered as transient with dependency injection. The client can now be injected and consumed directly in types created by DI.

IServiceProvider serviceProvider = ...
ICalculator calculator = serviceProvider.GetRequiredService<ICalculator>();

// call Sum: sum == 6
var sum = await calculator.Sum(1, 2, 3);

// call MultiplyBy: multiplier == 2, values == [] {2, 4, 6}
var (multiplier, values) = await calculator.MultiplyBy(new[] {1, 2, 3}, 2);

Register and configure gRPC clients with custom GrpcChannel

IServiceCollection services = ...;


    .AddServiceModelGrpcClient<ICalculator>((options, serviceProvider) =>
        options.MarshallerFactory = ...
        options.ErrorHandler = ...
