Protoc compilation error when building plugin


I’m following the waypoint plugin tutorial ( and receiving the following error when trying to build the gobuilder plugin:

Build Protos
protoc -I . --go_out=plugins=grpc:. --go_opt=paths=source_relative ./builder/output.proto
--go_out: protoc-gen-go: plugins are not supported; use 'protoc --go-grpc_out=...' to generate gRPC
make: *** [protos] Error 1

This is the command that fails

It seems more of an issue with protoc or grpc but was wondering if anyone has run into this or knows how to fix it?

OS: MacOS 10.14.6
Go version: go1.14.3 darwin/amd64
protoc version: libprotoc 3.13.0



Did you install the latest go-grpc plugins?

go get -u 
go get -u

I thought I did but I mustn’t have installed them correctly :man_facepalming: Works now after installing them in the plugin directory. Thanks for the help
