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 ...

  1. Add ".dll" to AllowFileExtension, and add dll => "application/octet-stream" MimeTypes

    The new WebAssembly feature being added to mainstream browsers will download .dll files to the browser. To make it possible to serve static .dll fiiles by default, please add .dll files as mimeType application/octet-stream, and allow these types of files by default.

    • Add ".wasm" to AllowFileExtensions and associate MimeType "application/wasm"

      WebAssembly is a new binary format for static files. The official site has more info. https://webassembly.org/

      Google for webassembly mimetype w3c will return many results showing the addition of this file extension and Mimetype in other mainstream servers.

      • Batching support for Typescript JsonServiceClient

        I would like to get the batching support for the Typescript JsonServiceClient as it is supported by the C# JsonServiceClient.

          • Support for filtering DTO's by namespace

            It'll be really useful to be able to define namespaces for DTO filtering. Currently I can specify Types to include or exclude but doing it by namespace will be much more useful in situations where there are too many types to include or exclude.

              You can include a Request DTO and all its dependent Types it references with a .* suffix, e.g:

              IncludeTypes: MyRequest.*

              You can also include all types with a C# namespace with the /* suffix, e.g:

              IncludeTypes: MyApp.ServiceModel.Admin/*

              This change is available from v5.0.3 that’s now available on MyGet.

            • Support ServerEventsClient in .NET Core

              My server needs to be able to push messages to my app. Unfortunately, I'm running ServiceStack.Client.Core in a .NET Standard library, which means my app does not have access to ServerEventsClient. Having the ability to use ServerEventsClient in .NET Standard libraries would be amazing.

              • 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.

                • ServiceStack .NET Core 2 React Template

                  It would be nice if you had a (vanilla JS) ServiceStack .NET Core 2 + React template project (without typescript).

                      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.

                      • Provide option to set Referer header on service client.

                        Due to it being a restricted header, the referer cannot be set using the standard header methods. In order to set the referer on a standard http web request, you must use the referer property. I would like to suggest that this header be accessible from the client.

                        • Show plugin startup errors on metadata screen

                          Add a visual indicator which links to or has a label that contains any plugin startup errors on the metadata page.

                          Given that they are swallowed to prevent the apphost from crashing it is not always obvious unless you check the operations metadata.

                            From v4.5.7 (now on MyGet) the number of Startup Errors will appear in X-Startup-Errors HTTP Response Header (visible when viewing HTTP Responses) and when in DebugMode a warning banner will appear on the /metadata page.

                                • Update the servicestack-client typescript pacakge to include .d.ts files in npm

                                  Creating new Angular 2.0 projects with the angular CLI is simpler if all the packages required include their typescript definition files in their npm package which allows the types to be registered by calling : npm install @types/servicestack-client instead of having to rely on using typings. Please consider updating your npm pacakge to include the typescript definition files for the typescript client.

                                    With Service Stack you can create very good backend, it would be nice to use all functions that it provides of Android, without Xamarin because Android is the most popular platform for mobile devices.

                                    For a complete happiness is not enough to us now server events so we do request every 5 seconds to check for data.

                                    Please make the ability to use server events on Android.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Typescript and C# Enums: option for string literal types

                                      We already proposed https://servicestack.uservoice.com/forums/176786-feature-requests/suggestions/10105086-add-support-for-non-ambient-typescript-module-gene

                                      We are using this and it works well, but unfortunately there is one issue: enums!

                                      We serialize the enums as strings and not integers.

                                      In typescript world this all works fine, the enums are in the generated DTO's and the compiler is happy. But on the wire there is the Enum as a string instead of an integer which typescript can't map back to the typed dto. so all my typescript code doesn't work anymore.

                                      We end up doing:

                                      myAnimal.AnimalType.ToString() === dtos.AnimalType[dtos.AnimalType.Rabbit]

                                      which is working but doesn't feel "right". From a typescript point of view we…

                                        • Session data Persistance on login

                                          I am building a webshop/ecommerce platform with:
                                          * an extension on CredentialsAuthProvider.
                                          * And an extension on the AuthUserSession with

                                          on login want to persist the CartId. but i found the source code does reset the session on login. But this part is not overrideable.

                                          i made a pull request. please check it, adjust it to the way you work.
