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).

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

      We’re super excited to announce ServiceStack is now running on .NET Core!

      Nearly all of ServiceStack’s features are now available across 21 of our most popular NuGet packages, inc. OrmLite support for SQL Server, PostgreSQL and Sqlite. We’ve been able to achieve excellent integration and code-reuse where your ServiceStack AppHost can be registered as a .NET Core module and most of your Service Implementation using ServiceStack libraries remains unchanged.

      We’ve ported a number of existing Live Demos to .NET Core providing example projects so you can easily compare .NET 4.5 ServiceStack code-bases with what it looks like in .NET Core at:
      https://github.com/NetCoreApps/LiveDemos

      All .NET Core Live Demos are running on Linux / Docker using AWS ECS Container Service.

      We’re maintaining .NET Core packages isolated from the Main NuGet packages separated with a `.Core` suffix until we’re satisfied .NET Core has been battle-tested…

    • 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.

        • Add ETag / If-None-Match support to enable client-side caching

          This would be very nice to have, in both the ServiceStack client AND server. The server part would be preferred, obviously :)

            ServiceStack’s HTTP Caching story has been greatly improved in v4.0.56 which transparently improves the behavior of existing ToOptimized Cached Responses, provides a typed API to to opt-in to HTTP Client features, introduces a simpler declarative API for enabling both Server and Client Caching of Services and also includes Cache-aware clients that are able to improve the performance and robustness of all existing .NET Service Clients – functionality that’s especially valuable to bandwidth-constrained Xamarin.iOS / Xamarin.Android clients offering improved performance and greater resilience.

            For more details please refer to the v4.0.56 Release Notes: https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/blob/master/docs/2016/v4.0.56.md#http-caching

          • Research optimal deployment strategies for hosting on Mono/Linux

            Research optimal deployment strategies for hosting ServiceStack on Linux (e.g. nginx FastCGI/ nginx + reverse proxy / self-hosting inside linux daemon) with the best performance, that best supports CI deployment with no downtime, auto restart/recovery when Mono process dies.

              We’ve published our recommended Setup for hosting ASP .NET sites on Linux and Mono is to use nginx/HyperFastCgi. We’ve published a step-by-step guide going through creating an Ubuntu VM from scratch complete with deploy / install / conf / init scripts at [mono-server-config]1.

              As well as a guide for hosting ServiceStack with Mono on Docker at: https://github.com/ServiceStackApps/mono-docker-config

              Although hosting on Mono is only a Stop Gap as the future and supported option for running .NET on Linux is CoreCLR which will be a priority for us to look at supporting as soon as it’s released. You can vote for the feature request to keep updated on progress: https://servicestack.uservoice.com/forums/176786-feature-requests/suggestions/10286952-support-dnx

            • Enhance OrmLite with common data usage patterns

              Add better support for Joins and fetching related records.

                Support for AutoQuery has been added in v4.0.23 which enables instant querying support on RDBMS tables behind clean self-describing APIs, full docs for AutoQuery is available at:
                https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/wiki/Auto-Query

                Support for joins have been added to typed SqlExpressions in v4.0.22:
                https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/blob/master/release-notes.md#typed-sql-expressions-now-support-joins


                Going to mark off this broad feature as completed as we’ve just completed what we set out to do for this. Please open up new feature requests for more specific features.

                Thanks!

                  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.

                • Server-side Async support

                  Change ServiceStack to be based on IHttpAsyncHandler so services have the option to be non-blocking by returning a Task<T>.

                      • Improve support for Xamarin iOS/Android clients

                        Provide better support and testing around Android/iOS builds. iOS's AOT restrictions would likely require code-gen to minimize NoJIT errors.

                                    • Portable Class Library for Xamarin Clients - Xamarin Component Store

                                      Xamarin support IOS/Android/Windows Store/Windows Phone. A universal Service Stack client written using PCL would simplify code reuse. The code could be packaged up into a Xamarin Component Store download if necessary. Or be used in conjunction with MvvmCross for use in MVVM style coding and/or unit testing.

                                      • Support SSL connection to Redis instances hosted as PaaS in public clouds such as Azure.

                                        At this time, StackExchange.Redis is the only .Net library I can find that supports SSL connections to Azure Redis. I imagine others will follow suit. It would be useful to have SSL connection available in ServiceStack as well. Thanks.
