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. Customize Auth DTO Response

    Currently if we want to customize the Auth DTO Response in Credential Auth Provider, we must to rewrite the Auth Feature,the Authentication Service and the Credential Provider.
    It would be useful to be able to set a custom auth DTO Response.

    At this time there isn't a simple solution.
    I found this post on stackoverflow that explains the problem in details:

    You can use the Meta string Dictionary to extend the AuthenticateResponse with additional custom info, but we’re not planning on trying to support for switching the AuthenticateResponse DTO entirely and breaking the Service Contract.

  2. Create PCL/Silverlight version of MsgPackServiceClient

    The MessagePack format seems pretty ideal for communication between a ServiceStack service and a Silverlight client. Unfortunately there is no PCL package for ServiceStack.MsgPack.

    On top of that it would be useful to split the client and server parts into separate packages.

  3. Refactor IReturn to allow portable DTOs

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12700702/servicestack-ireturn

    "In the case where you define your DTOs in a portable class library, you won't be able to use IReturn or the NewApi. Perhaps IReturn should be defined in a PCL in ServiceStack. Just a thought."

  4. Add 'Add Service Reference' functionality

    Instead of sharing binary dlls with client projects, provide the option for being able to generate DTO's on the client using metadata from a remote ServiceStack instance. The result to be equivalent to sharing the binary DTO dll on the client, where you can continue to use them with generic .NET Service Clients.

    Later add support for generating types in alternative languages/platforms: Java/Ruby/Python/JavaScript/PHP/Clojure in order of interest.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    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.

  15. Flag MyGet builds as nightly, beta, alpah, pre-release

    If the MyGet builds are marked as pre-release then it will be easy to move between MyGet builds for the same version number and also easier to upgrade to the NuGet stable build when it is released.

    I deploy to Azure Web Sites which does the nuget package restore and full solution build for me. In order to move between MyGet builds or move to the stable NuGet build, I have to log in and manually delete the package cache on every site. If the MyGet builds had their own unque version number, upgrades would be easier.

  16. Add more Razor @helper functions support

    Support to use @helper not only to call functions in an external assembly (which I think is already supported by SS), but also to call helper functions inside very the same .cshtml template like describied in this link:http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6531983/how-to-create-a-function-in-a-cshtml-template

  18. Enable foreign key constraint checks for Sqlite

    Currently OrmLite's Sqlite adapter supports creation of foreign key constraints when using the ForeignKey attribute on your data classes. However the foreign keys aren't actually enforced at the database by default (for 'compatibility reasons').

    I don't know when Sqlite added the feature, but it will check constraints if you send a pragma at the start of each connection:

    http://www.sqlite.org/pragma.html#pragma_foreign_keys

    I've tested a simple workaround by sending the pragma as a SQL statement in my service methods), and the constraints are enforced as expected. Cascade deletes work as expected too.

    However this isn't optimal if you want your service code to…

    The EnableForeignKeysCheck/Async and DisableForeignKeysCheck/Async APIs are the RDBMS agnostic APIs for enabling/disabling FK constraints which in SQLite sets the foreign_keys PRAGMA.

    There’s no state or concept of “prepending to first db request”, the right time to call it is after opening a DB Connection which you can wrap in your own Custom SqliteOrmLiteConnectionFactory as Franck shows in comments or behind a custom IDbConnection extension method that does it or if you want it called everytime you can register it on the IOrmLiteDialectProvider’s OnOpenConnection delegate which is also available on the OrmLiteConnectionFactory’s ConnectionFilter.

  19. Possibility to download previous version of ServiceStackVS extension

    Since latest update of ServiceStackVS seems to introduce a bug in VS 2015, the option "Add ServiceStack Reference" is no longer appearing in project context menu. In addition, the ability to update ServiceStack References is broken too.

    Where can I download previous version of this extension ?

  20. 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.

    Our Modular Startup makes it easier to configure features which our Start page takes advantage to create customizable starting project templates:
    https://servicestack.net/start

    We’ve also been busy this year creating free videos on YouTube exploring different features of ServiceStack, with 25+ new videos created this year and counting.

    Please subscribe to your YouTube channel to get updates as they’re published:
