curl for gRPC.

Terminal utilities
Our review

What we like

Point it at your protobuf files and you can easily interact with gRPC endpoints. Can also detect the services based on reflection, if supported by the endpoint. Supports TLS and plaintext (useful for development), plus streaming methods. Can be pipelined with tools like jq because it works with JSON request bodies that it translates to gRPC. Single binary (Golang) and open source.

What we don't like

Only supports JSON inputs. No release for a year even though development has happened on main.
