Feature Requests

Feature, docs and use-case samples requests for ServiceStack. If you can, focus on the end-user benefit / use-case, rather than the technical details so we can focus on the end-goal and free us to work on how best to achieve it. Features can also include supporting content, e.g. a starter project on how to use ServiceStack with another product (e.g. SS + SharePoint).

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Add ServiceStack + Microsoft On-Premise ServiceFabric example

    Could someone please provide an example of using ServiceStack in the Microsoft On-Premise ServiceFabric PaaS. Maybe show an example of a Monolithic and Microservices configuration.

  2. Update the servicestack-client typescript pacakge to include .d.ts files in npm

    Creating new Angular 2.0 projects with the angular CLI is simpler if all the packages required include their typescript definition files in their npm package which allows the types to be registered by calling : npm install @types/servicestack-client instead of having to rely on using typings. Please consider updating your npm pacakge to include the typescript definition files for the typescript client.

  3. Android Java Server Events Client

    With Service Stack you can create very good backend, it would be nice to use all functions that it provides of Android, without Xamarin because Android is the most popular platform for mobile devices.

    For a complete happiness is not enough to us now server events so we do request every 5 seconds to check for data.

    Please make the ability to use server events on Android.

    Thanks!

  4. Typescript and C# Enums: option for string literal types

    We already proposed https://servicestack.uservoice.com/forums/176786-feature-requests/suggestions/10105086-add-support-for-non-ambient-typescript-module-gene

    We are using this and it works well, but unfortunately there is one issue: enums!

    We serialize the enums as strings and not integers.

    In typescript world this all works fine, the enums are in the generated DTO's and the compiler is happy. But on the wire there is the Enum as a string instead of an integer which typescript can't map back to the typed dto. so all my typescript code doesn't work anymore.

    We end up doing:

    myAnimal.AnimalType.ToString() === dtos.AnimalType[dtos.AnimalType.Rabbit]

    which is working but doesn't feel "right". From a typescript point of view we…

  7. Add TypeScript reference for WebStorm

    ServiceStack already has a plugin for IntelliJ Idea to generate typed requests, and for Visual Studio to generate TypeScript models. It would be nice to combine both of them in a WebStorm support for TypeScript models generation from a ServiceStack service.

    We’re super excited to announce ServiceStack is now running on .NET Core!

    Nearly all of ServiceStack’s features are now available across 21 of our most popular NuGet packages, inc. OrmLite support for SQL Server, PostgreSQL and Sqlite. We’ve been able to achieve excellent integration and code-reuse where your ServiceStack AppHost can be registered as a .NET Core module and most of your Service Implementation using ServiceStack libraries remains unchanged.

    We’ve ported a number of existing Live Demos to .NET Core providing example projects so you can easily compare .NET 4.5 ServiceStack code-bases with what it looks like in .NET Core at:
    https://github.com/NetCoreApps/LiveDemos

    All .NET Core Live Demos are running on Linux / Docker using AWS ECS Container Service.

    We’re maintaining .NET Core packages isolated from the Main NuGet packages separated with a `.Core` suffix until we’re satisfied .NET Core has been battle-tested…

  10. Add Servicestack + Aurelia template

    Add a starter template for servicestack and aurelia. After what I've read, Aurelia and ServiceStack seems to have a lot in common. Like conventions over configuration. It's easy to test, customize and extend.

  11. Support Kestrel as a hosting provider

    The KestrelHTTPServer is built on the cross-platform libuv library.

    While some of the elements in Kestrel may conflict with ServiceStack's implementations (different DI, request / response filters), the overall goals are in alignment, and would bring a powerful new hosting option for ServiceStack.

  12. new feature in c# add service stack reference

    I'd like the possibility to specify if types (all or specific ones) should be generated as internal and not as public

    such as
    InternalTypes: ... list of types

    often I get collision among types that are in a shared library , but that do "leak" through a service request / response DTO .

  13. support swagger 2.0

    in order to tie into the ecosystem of self-describing APIs supporting Swagger 2.0 definitions, I would like to suggest support for this version of swagger. This is particularly necessary for supporting Azure Web Api Apps....the only way to create an Azure API app currently appears to be to use the Swashbuckle Generator (which means using WebApi instead of ServiceStack) or hand-crafting the definition file.

  14. Self Host Response Compression

    Add built-in response compression for Self Hosted applications.

    As per https://forums.servicestack.net/t/http-response-compression-with-self-hosted/2098/4, there is only one way to enable compression on a Self Hosted SS application, add a http proxy like nginx (beta on Windows) in-front of SS.

    This is not ideal as it increases the complexity of deployments and maintenance.

  15. Extend CacheResponse feature with a VaryByRoles option

    A number of our services have responses that vary by the set of roles a user is associated with. It would be more memory efficient if we could cache by roles rather than by user for these services.

    I’ve added support for VaryByRoles in this commit: https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/commit/bbd3eda601b4a373d81bbed593bc2b743dbcf6f6

    You need to be explicit in which roles the cache should be varied by, e.g:

    [CacheResponse(Duration = 60, VaryByRoles = new[] { “RoleA”, “RoleB” })]

    Where there will be separate caches created for Users in “RoleA” vs “RoleB” vs No Role/UnAuthenticated Users.

    This is available from v4.0.55 that’s now on MyGet

  17. PocoDynamo - Support Generic Types

    We're interested in purchasing licenses for ServiceStack. Particularly, we're interested in using the ServiceStack.Aws component. However, while evaluating it, we noticed that the PocoDynamo implementation fails to support generic types.

    Currently, if a table is registered using a generic type (i.e. db.RegisterTable<GenericPoco<Poco>()) , it fails because the name used for the table does not abide by DynamoDB's rules for Table Name.

    I have local modifications of the ServiceStack.Aws source that allows for generic types definitions to be registered, including tests showing it working. I can submit this code to somebody on your team if you like.

  18. Why 'Fmt'?

    Why don't you use plain 'Format' instead?

    ‘fmt’ is a widely used abbreviation to mean format, as this is something that can used a lot we prefer its most abbreviated form to reduce the noise. If you prefer a longer name you can use the equivalent `.FormatWith()` extension method however both these APIs are effectively deprecated with C# 6’s new string interpolation.

    Please ask questions in Customer Forums or StackOverflow: https://forums.servicestack.net

  19. Change ServiceStackVS templates to Gulp

    Gulp has got much better friction in the community than Grunt and many people already moved to Gulp completely. ServiceStack SPA templates use Grunt and leverage Gulp packages via grunt-gulp, which seems to be articifial. Wouldn't it be easier just to remove Grunt at all and make everything with Gulp instead?
