How to exercise Proto API?

Is it possible to make calls to the proto API via something like cURL or Postman? There doesn’t seem to be an actual server running, which is a bit confusing to me.

For example, it’d be great if I could call the getCard RPC from an external program.

The Protobuf messages are mainly used for in-process communication between the Rust & Python layers, where a server would be extra overhead. An option to expose them over HTTP may come in the future, but for now I suggest you use the AnkiConnect add-on.
