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. PocoDynamo Async APIs

    The ServiceStack.Aws.DynamoDb has only limited APIs that are async (currently 3 methods).

    I would like to see the rest of the APIs get an async overload.

    I hope that's enough of a description.

  2. OrmLite Support saving of PhysicalAddress

    Saving classes with properties of type PhysicalAddress does not work. The reason should be the serialization:

    [Test]
    public void JsvStringSerializerWorksForPhysicalAddress()
    {
    var address = PhysicalAddress.Parse("0123456789AB");

    var serializer = new JsvStringSerializer();
    var result = serializer.SerializeToString(address);
    StringAssert.Contains("0123456789AB", result);
    }

  3. Backend Hosting Environment

    When starting a new project one always has to build a backend environment. This includes managing users, user groups, user password changes, etc. etc. This requires a backend database and an admin front-end.

    Currently, we use the ASPNETZERO framework for this purpose. https://aspnetzero.com/ But the support, documentation, and performance leave a lot of room for improvement.

    We're looking to move away from ASPNETZERO as soon as we can find a replacement. Currently, their pricing starts at $1500 a year for updates and support. Something that I would gladly pay, except the documentation and support they provide is horrible.

    It would…

  4. Generate 1 Testmethod for each end point and create the object structure in MStest/Nunit/Xunit

    Currently we have to write a testmethod for each endpoint and define the DTOs and then provide data to test. Instead if we have a testfile generated which can act like template and teams just write data against it. This helps teams to have proper test coverage and would save the time to create these request and response models.(Which already ServicestackVS reference does)

  6. Blazor support

    Blazor (www.blazor.net) seems to be the next revolution in web programming, where C# can be used instead of Javascript.

    However, WebAssembly is in essence still Javascript, and thus it seems that the C# client for Servicestack cannot be used:

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/56386712/servicestack-adding-blazor-support

    I would suggest looking into supporting Blazor client-side programming with ServiceStack, at least a C# client that works with the ServiceStack cli (https://docs.servicestack.net/csharp-client).

    Regards

  9. Allow Join with UpdateOnly

    Trying to UpdateOnly, when onlyField is typed as SqlExpression and the query has a Join an error will be thrown that says "The multi-part identifier "DepartmentJobCode.DepartmentId" could not be bound."

    Example:
    var jobsQuery = _db.From<dev.ScheduleEvent>()
    .Join<dev.DepartmentJobCode>((se,jc)=> se.Job == jc.JobTitleId)
    .Where<dev.DepartmentJobCode>(e => Sql.In(e.DepartmentId, departments))
    .Update(x => new { x.Published, x.ModifiedBy});
    db.UpdateOnly(new dev.ScheduleEvent { Published = false, ModifiedBy = userId}, onlyFields: jobsQuery);

  11. Auto Batched Requests - return responses up to error

    When an error occurs processing a batch of requests, the responses for the successful requests are lost. It would be helpful if these successful response are returned along with the error that stopped further processing.

  12. Web App support for accessing remote ServiceStack services

    Templates has a sendToGateway option. In a Web App it would be good if settings could be provided for the baseUrl for the ServiceStack service which should receive the request.

  14. Allow custom type converter for CSV parser

    The only thing that keeps me from dropping CsvHelper and using SS Csv capabilities for everything is that quite often I need a custom type converter.

    For instance sometimes currency is a mix of numbers and letters or there can be inconsistent data.

    If there was a way to register a method that would receive the raw column values and alter them then this would make it much more versatile in my opinion.

  15. Support Upsert with MySQL

    AWS Charges by the IOp, not supporting UPSERT effectively doubles the cost (and reduces the performance) of running mysql/mariadb on that platform with the SELECT/INSERT behavior of OrmLite

  17. Help Pluralsight update their video on Servicestack and/or the solution

    Help Pluralsight update their videos on Servicestack and/or show how to update their example solutions to the latest version of Servicestack.
    Another alternative is to offer an updated version of the videos example code localy (somewhere at servicestack.net/github.com).

    I tried to do a update to the latest versions myself and I ran into loads of problems. To the extent that i gave up.

  18. Update links in Community resources

    I went trough the links in chapter:
    Community Resources September 20, 2015
    on page:
    http://docs.servicestack.net/create-webservice-from-scratch

    to have a look on how old the articles where. There where a number of not found:s as well as one very graphic adult nude gymnastic site...
    The entries still there where a bit on the old side.

  19. Port AspNetWindowsAuthentication To .Net Core

    At present, the AspNetWindowsAuthentication is not supported in .NET Core. ASP.NET Core does allow for Windows Authentication (through IIS reverse proxy), so it would be great to have support for this in ServiceStack.

    I made an attempt at porting it myself, and it kind of works, though I'm sure I'm missing some subtleties on how it works, as I sometimes get "header already set" errors on some requests. In case this never gets picked up, here's a gist of my attempt:
