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.

  1. 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.

    • ServiceStack.OrmLite.Core Mysql support.

      I'd like to see a mysql integration.

      • Profile major aspects to ensure speed

        One of the most enticing aspects about ServiceStack is that it is incredibly fast. I suggest that all major aspects of SS (web services, text, ormlite) get thoroughly tested in the upcoming versions just to make sure the code base is as fast as it could be.

        • 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.

          • Support Kestrel as a hosting provider

            The KestrelHTTPServer is built on the cross-platform libuv library.

            While some of the elements in Kestrel may conflict with ServiceStack's implementations (different DI, request / response filters), the overall goals are in alignment, and would bring a powerful new hosting option for ServiceStack.

              • 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.

                  Could someone please provide an example of using ServiceStack in the Microsoft On-Premise ServiceFabric PaaS. Maybe show an example of a Monolithic and Microservices configuration.

                      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…

                    • 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.

                      • Endpoint Configuration Discovery

                        In WCF, I can create a udp endpoint discovery to allow client finding the service without knowing the endpoint addresses.

                        Is there a similar approach using restful servicestack so that the client could discover the end point addresses using some kind of discovery detection ?

                        • 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.

                                  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…

                                  • Add TypeScript reference for WebStorm

                                    ServiceStack already has a plugin for IntelliJ Idea to generate typed requests, and for Visual Studio to generate TypeScript models. It would be nice to combine both of them in a WebStorm support for TypeScript models generation from a ServiceStack service.

                                    • new feature in c# add service stack reference

                                      I'd like the possibility to specify if types (all or specific ones) should be generated as internal and not as public

                                      such as
                                      InternalTypes: ... list of types

                                      often I get collision among types that are in a shared library , but that do "leak" through a service request / response DTO .

                                      • 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.
