gRPC working on render

Hey guys,
does render.com web service support grpc applications?
Best regards,

Hi @picopco,

There’s certainly nothing preventing you from spinning up gRPC services on Render and calling them from other Render services in the same Region. However, as of today the service won’t be able to communicate over the public internet without some additional provisions.

If you have other services that need to connect you could leverage our Tailscale example to set up a VPN to make requests to your gRPC service.

Alternatively, you could deploy a gateway such as GitHub - grpc-ecosystem/grpc-gateway: gRPC to JSON proxy generator following the gRPC HTTP spec to proxy requests to your gRPC service.

I don’t see that we’ve received any requests for this capability at https://feedback.render.com/, I’d also encourage you to add something there if this is functionality you’d find valuable.

Regards,

Matt
