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).

    it's not possible to have enum information show up in the metadata page, but only in swagger .. it would be nice to have such allowed enum values in metadata page as well.

  2. Add support for non-ambient TypeScript module generation in ssutil

    While having typing information in an ambient module (d.ts) is great for most use cases it doesn't cover the following two problems:

    • Using enums declared in an ambient module: The enums are not compiled to JavaScript objects and can therefore not be used
    • Creating instances of DTOs: You cannot create an instance of a DTO if it is an interface.

    My suggestion is to have the possibility to create a normal TypeScript module with classes instead of interfaces and exported enums which can be compiled to JavaScript.

    Currently the following ambient module is created

    declare module api
    {
    interface MyDTO…

  3. 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.

  4. ORMLite - Add attribute to ignore property on updates

    It'd be nice to have an attribute to apply to data DTOs that would cause them to be excluded if an update statement is executed.

    Use case: Auditing
    I have an IAudit interface that looks like (basically copied from Demis' answer here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21803999/are-interceptors-possible-in-servicestack-ormlite)

    public IAudited{
    string CreatedBy {get; set;}
    DateTime CreatedDate {get;set;}
    string ModifiedBy {get;set;}
    string ModifiedDate {get;set;}
    }

    Using OrmLite's insert filter makes it easy to generate values for the interface members when setting, as I can get the current user and Date and use them for both the Created and Modified fields. On an update though, I…

  5. Make virtual some methods in OrmLiteAuthRepository

    It's possibile to make inheritable some methods in OrmLiteAuthRepository class, to allow custom logics?

    For example CreateUserAuth, UpdateUserAuth, CreateOrMergeAuthSession, GetPermissions/Role, Has Permission/Roles, etc

  6. Allow us to use Geography data type in Sql Server

    It would be nice to be able to take advantage of the Geography type in Sql Server... even better, I wonder if there would be a way to allow "us" to define custom classes for these more advanced data types that are built into a database.

  8. Allow sub-select SqlExpression in Sql.In clauses

    The Load* methods already do this internally (sort-of), but allow explicitly creating Where expressions that use a sub-select to get the IDs, instead of the Sql.In() utility. Or possibly reworking Sql.In to support a Select with a single column.

    Something like this:
    var customers = Db.From<Customers>().Where( ... my complex expression ... ).Select("Id");

    var orders = Db.Select<Orders>(q => Sql.In(q.CustomerId, customers);

  9. Deprecate or update docs.servicstack.net

    Can you either shelve or update docs.servicestack.net? They appear to be very out-of-date, but keep showing up in search results. While most of the information is relevant, its incomplete and occasionally misleading.

  14. Command Line/Buildserver support for ServiceStack references

    We use the ServiceStackVS extension to generate TypeScript code for our service.
    During development (when the API might still change) it would be really nice is we could generate the TypeScript code as a step in the build process to make sure our TypeScript projects are always build against the latest API (and fail when there are breaking changes).

    Although we currently only use the TypeScript generator I assume the same applies to the other languages as well.

  17. OrmLite Join Aliases

    Joining on the same table multiple times results in incorrect SQL being generated by OrmLite.

    Table aliases need to be added automatically by OrmLite so the correct SQL is generated when joining on the same table multiple times.

  18. Ability to override OrmLiteCacheClient to change CacheEntry table name

    However it would be best to accomplish, it would be rad to be able to have our own Alias for the CacheEntry object inside OrmLiteCacheClient. We are sharing a database between multiple web apps, but don't want to share the same CacheEntry table.

  19. Add Email Templating Engine

    Similar to ServiceStack Bundler, it'd be fantastic to have a node.js-powered email templating system for generating transactional emails with custom data payloads out of a SS app.

    It'd be great if the engine worked with simple html templates and CSS so that non-C# people can get involved. Something super simple to use and set up, but powerful in execution.

    This would make emails:

    • testable
    • collaborative (e.g. with frontend engineers)
    • iterable (easy transactional email multivariate testing?)
    • CSS automatic inlining
    • optional integration with litmus.com?

    The latest v5.2 release includes a powerful and easy to use template system which is ideal for non-devs to create email templates:

    https://docs.servicestack.net/releases/v5.2#servicestack-templates-remastered

    The Background MQ provides a great way to send emails in the background:
    http://docs.servicestack.net/background-mq

    A working example of this is available in TechStacks:
    https://github.com/NetCoreApps/TechStacks#background-mq-service
