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. Group operations on metadata page by the service they are in

    By default the metadata page could group the operations by the service they are in.
    All user operations under UserService.
    Order operations under OrderService.
    etc.

  2. Add Distirbuted Configuration Management

    with distributed services, the configuration is stored on application configuration files, these are hard to maintain in sync and requires application restart to apply changes.

    the distributed configuration manager can take this issue down, and allow configuration changes at runtime on a single place.

    much like the Netflix Archaius library

  3. support caching in java AndroidServiceClient

    Using servicestack client in mobile development with Xamarin gives so much benefits and caching dramatically improves performance and user experience.
    It would be nice to have same caching support for all clients (.NET, JAVA, ..)

  6. PocoDynamo - Support Distributed Locks

    The Redis client supports distributed locks, which is a really useful feature, the same is possible using DynamoDB.

  7. 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.

  8. Add support for [References(TYPE)] in NativeTypesFeature

    The NativeTypesFeature is used by ServiceStackVS does a great job of looking at all types exposed by Services. However, it fails to include (or exclude via options) any type only referenced via a "ReferencesAttribute" data annotation. This forces me to either create a complete clone of the type just for automatic client DTO generation, or to create an additional dummy service route that exposes this type.

    Can the NativeTypesFeature be enhanced to also include Reference(TYPE) and/or References(TYPE)?

  9. Allow Serialization/Deserialization of DTO objects through a Stream for returning unbounded results sets

    following the discussion on the related post (https://plus.google.com/102769881855401822960/posts/FjydVsKJWTT) it would be great to be able to return a result set of DTO objects in a stream (which could be deserialized as they arrived on the client to reduce latency). a custom IEnumerator/IEnumerable result type could be used to hide the specifics of deserializing the objects from the stream.

  10. Allow field level control in the Request Logger

    The API request logger logs all fields and there is now way to disable any of them. Specifically, logging the users cookie each time takes up a huge amount of space and also makes the display difficult to use. Please add a config option to allow control over which fields get logged.

  13. RediSearch Client forthcoming from ServiceStack?

    I was just reading about the Redis Labs new RediSearch product for use in implementing a search engine in Redis. I saw in the RediSearch product page that StackExchange has a C# client for this product. Do you plan to implement RediSearch client in ServiceStack.Redis? I prefer ServiceStack modules to StackExchange.

    If this is your roadmap, can you project delivery of such a client?

    Keep up the good work! Thanks!

  14. 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)

  15. Redis Cache value compression

    Redis and clients are typically IO bound and the IO costs are typically at least 2 orders of magnitude in respect to the rest of the request/reply sequence. Smaller payloads will give you higher throughput and lower latencies.

    The ICacheClient interface should provide an option to enable compression. This will store a compressed string representation in the cache store (except in memory). Default should be false.

    Some interesting reads:

  16. Kinesis Data Streams/Firehose Plugin for RequestLogger

    Would be very helpful to be able to stream RequestLogger data to AWS Kinesis Data Streams and Kinesis Data Firehose.

  17. Inject ReplyClientFactory from RedisMqServer to MessageHandler<T>

    There's a ReplyClientFactory property on RedisMqServer, which is not used at all. I believe that it should be used to override the MessageHandler<T>.ReplyClientFactory property.

  18. smal change in IndexOperationsControl.RenderRow

    You could do a little modification to the IndexOperationsControl.RenderRow method, so that no row for an operation is rendered if no formats are available in the calling scenario.
    Currently, if I protect an operation with
    [Restrict(VisibilityTo = RequestAttributes.InternalNetworkAccess | RequestAttributes.AnyFormat)]
    and i connect from an external network I see the operation with all formats disabled. It would be better not to see the operation at all.

  19. Allow filtering of services on metadata page by endpoint

    If you have many services, which you also want to provide via soap and other endpoint types and thus need multiple for each http verb. It would be great to be able to filter the metadata page based on endpoints (JSON, JSV, SOAP, Protobuf, etc.).
    Similare to the already provided filter function or via chechboxes to turn each endpoint on and off.

  20. Add a new method to IContainerAdapter interface to support Resolving with name parameters

    I am using ServiceStack with Autofac IoC.
    There is code provided for wiring up the AutofacIocAdapter as the default resolver for ServiceStack (instead of Funq).
    There are two method currently exposed on the IContanerAdapter interface which is used to expose wiring.
    It would be useful to expose another method to resolve registered components with named parameters .
    It would be very easy as the underlying IContainer interface already exposes this methed.

    So, something like

    public class AutofacIocAdapter : IContainerAdapter

    {
    
    private readonly IContainer _container;

    public AutofacIocAdapter(IContainer container)
    {
    _container = container;
    }

    public T Resolve&lt;T&gt;()
    {
    return _container.Resolve&lt;T&gt;();
    }

    public…
