Protocol buffers are Google’s language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured data – think XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler. You define how you want your data to be structured once, then you can use special generated source code to easily write and read your structured data to and from a variety of data streams and using a variety of languages.

Mouse Melon is a software application for viewing and editing data stored in the Protocol Buffers wire format. The program needs your .proto files to know the exact file format.

You can also use it as a documentation viewer and as code generator. Browse through your defined messages and gRPC methods and read your comments. Generate code for the programming language you're using by simply selecting the output directory and pressing a button.

Mouse Melon comes as a free version and a paid version. The only limitation of the free version is that you cannot use it to save project or data files. Viewing documentation, generating code and viewing Protocol Buffers data files is fully functional.
