Buf provides stub generation capability using it's high-performance, internal
buf generate uses a template file of the following shape:
By default, buf generate will look for a file of this shape named
buf.gen.yaml in your current directory. This can be thought of as a template
for the set of plugins you want to invoke. Then, call with:
The paths in the template and the
-o flag will be interpreted as relative to your
current directory, so you can place your template files anywhere.
Plugins are invoked in the order they are specified in the template, but each plugin
has a per-directory parallel invocation, with results from each invocation combined
before writing the result. This is equivalent behavior to
buf protoc --by_dir.
