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).

  1. Support for Visual Studio 2019

    VS2019 will be released tomorrow, but the current VSIX is not compatible with it. Aside from bumping the supported versions, it should also be updated to an AsyncPackage.

  3. OrmLite.PostgreSQL support for HStore types (Dictionary)

    Support of HStores when using Dictionary<string,string> or as a new field attribute.

    HStores (key values) are very good in certain scenarios (logging/auditing) and complex parsing is easier to do in .NET than in SQL.

    Custom SQL that SELECT's data is easy, but not easy to insert/save hstore in custom sql.

    Also Npgsql already supports them.

    More info here:

  4. Support OAuth2 on .net core

    At the moment, the *OAuth2 Providers for ServiceStack* library does not support .net core, as explained by mythz in this StackOverflow answer:

    > ServiceStack's OAuth2 depends on DotNetOpenAuth which unfortunately doesn't support .NET Core so there's currently no support for OAuth2 - https://stackoverflow.com/a/42344183/969613

    Google Authentication is a feature requirement on my current project, so this one thing is preventing us from moving to .net core, support for this would be great.

  5. Add ".dll" to AllowFileExtension, and add dll => "application/octet-stream" MimeTypes

    The new WebAssembly feature being added to mainstream browsers will download .dll files to the browser. To make it possible to serve static .dll fiiles by default, please add .dll files as mimeType application/octet-stream, and allow these types of files by default.

  6. Add ".wasm" to AllowFileExtensions and associate MimeType "application/wasm"

    WebAssembly is a new binary format for static files. The official site has more info. https://webassembly.org/

    Google for webassembly mimetype w3c will return many results showing the addition of this file extension and Mimetype in other mainstream servers.

  9. Support for filtering DTO's by namespace

    It'll be really useful to be able to define namespaces for DTO filtering. Currently I can specify Types to include or exclude but doing it by namespace will be much more useful in situations where there are too many types to include or exclude.

    You can include a Request DTO and all its dependent Types it references with a .* suffix, e.g:

    IncludeTypes: MyRequest.*

    You can also include all types with a C# namespace with the /* suffix, e.g:

    IncludeTypes: MyApp.ServiceModel.Admin/*

    This change is available from v5.0.3 that’s now available on MyGet.

  10. Support ServerEventsClient in .NET Core

    My server needs to be able to push messages to my app. Unfortunately, I'm running ServiceStack.Client.Core in a .NET Standard library, which means my app does not have access to ServerEventsClient. Having the ability to use ServerEventsClient in .NET Standard libraries would be amazing.

  11. IAppSettings implementation for new appsettings.json configuration format.

    Asp.NET Core defaults to use a json base appsettings.json configuration. Right now SS has no support for the new standard. I would like to have an IAppSettings implementation for the new format. Maintain different configuration files is less than optimal.

  12. Enum Serialization and Typescript String Enums

    I understand if this is changed it may break projects based on Typescript < 2.4. I propose a new flag or option to serialize enum strings as enum strings instead of string literals. This would minimally allow us to get access to the list of strings available for an enum which is not readily available with a string Literal.

    Instead of this:

    export type MessagePriority = "Normal" | "Low" | "High";

    It would be:

    export enum MessagePriority{
    Normal = "Normal",
    Low = "Low",
    High = "High"
    }

  13. ServiceStack .NET Core 2 React Template

    It would be nice if you had a (vanilla JS) ServiceStack .NET Core 2 + React template project (without typescript).

    We’ve added full support for VS.NET 2017 in the latest v4.5.10 release: http://docs.servicestack.net/releases/v4.5.10

    All ServiceStackVS Single Page App templates have also been converted to use Webpack and we’ve added a new template for Vue.js! The release notes contains an overview of Webpack and covers the different template built-in features.

    If you’re building ServiceStack from source you’ll notice we’ve switched to VS2017 new MSBuild format in all ServiceStack NuGet packages which is much cleaner and simpler for managing builds for different platforms.

  16. Provide option to set Referer header on service client.

    Due to it being a restricted header, the referer cannot be set using the standard header methods. In order to set the referer on a standard http web request, you must use the referer property. I would like to suggest that this header be accessible from the client.

  17. Show plugin startup errors on metadata screen

    Add a visual indicator which links to or has a label that contains any plugin startup errors on the metadata page.

    Given that they are swallowed to prevent the apphost from crashing it is not always obvious unless you check the operations metadata.

    From v4.5.7 (now on MyGet) the number of Startup Errors will appear in X-Startup-Errors HTTP Response Header (visible when viewing HTTP Responses) and when in DebugMode a warning banner will appear on the /metadata page.

  18. ServiceStack.OrmLite.Core Mysql support.

    I'd like to see a mysql integration.

  19. Exclude or Include by route prefix/subfix when add servicestack reference

    when add a service stack reference we can use include types and exclude types.

    could you add include / exclude by route.

    so, we can configure reference like this way.

    //include route "/mobile%"
    or
    //include route "%mobile%"
