Protobuf, short for Protocol Buffers, is a language-agnostic data serialization format developed by Google. It is designed to efficiently and reliably serialize structured data to communicate between different systems and programming languages. Protobuf offers a compact binary representation of data, making it efficient for data storage, transmission over networks, or persistent storage.
Protobuf uses a language called Protocol Buffer Language (proto) to define the structure of the data. The proto files specify the message types, fields, and their data types. These files serve as a contract be
