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. 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.

    • Allow custom type converter for CSV parser

      The only thing that keeps me from dropping CsvHelper and using SS Csv capabilities for everything is that quite often I need a custom type converter.

      For instance sometimes currency is a mix of numbers and letters or there can be inconsistent data.

      If there was a way to register a method that would receive the raw column values and alter them then this would make it much more versatile in my opinion.

      • Update links in Community resources

        I went trough the links in chapter:
        Community Resources September 20, 2015
        on page:
        http://docs.servicestack.net/create-webservice-from-scratch

        to have a look on how old the articles where. There where a number of not found:s as well as one very graphic adult nude gymnastic site...
        The entries still there where a bit on the old side.

          • Port AspNetWindowsAuthentication To .Net Core

            At present, the AspNetWindowsAuthentication is not supported in .NET Core. ASP.NET Core does allow for Windows Authentication (through IIS reverse proxy), so it would be great to have support for this in ServiceStack.

            I made an attempt at porting it myself, and it kind of works, though I'm sure I'm missing some subtleties on how it works, as I sometimes get "header already set" errors on some requests. In case this never gets picked up, here's a gist of my attempt:

            • Expand Generic Type when documenting responses

              We have an application that always return an AppContentResponse<T>. AppContentResponse contains some properties that are present in every response of every method we have, while the T is the actually Type of the response.

              When we look at the metadata documentation, ServiceStack generates the documentation for AppContentResponse<T> without also documenting T. The strange thing is that if I create a class that actually implements AppContentResponse<TypeOfThatResponse>, both types get automatically documented.

              I filed an issue at https://forums.servicestack.net/t/expand-generic-type-when-documenting-responses/5676 if you are looking for more details.

              • Silence code analysis for "Add ServiceStack reference..." generated code.

                The generated code does not conform to company rules so I get a bunch of useless warnings when I run code analysis on my solution.

                Just adding a

                // <auto-generated>
                // This code was generated by ServiceStack.
                // </auto-generated>

                block above or below the /* Options: */ block would be enough to exclude the generated file from code analysis.

                • Support for ServiceStack Client in NativeScript applications

                  I think that ServiceStack TypeScript client does not work in NativeScript + Angular2 applications, as I am getting a bunch of weird errors when trying that (in Fetch module).

                  I installed the module as this:
                  npm install --save @servicestack/client

                  Is there support for the TypeScript client in NativeScript applications? If not, Id like there to be =)

                    • 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)?

                      • Increase the number of generics parameters of Select, SelectDistinct and GroupBy

                        While some methods of SqlExpression<T> supports up to 15 generic parameters (Where, And, Or) others like Select, SelectDistinct and GroupBy only supports a couple. When building complex queries, it's easy to select data from more than 7 tables, or group by fields from more than 4 tables.

                        Could you implement more Select, SelectDistinct and GroupBy overloads like you did for Where, And and Or?

                        There is no specific number of parameters needed, but I think that the default 15 is a good start.

                        • Add a MQ Server support for Azure Storage Queues

                          Storage Queues are cheaper and more performant than azure service bus if guaranteed first-in-first-out, etc is not required.

                          They do offer 'At-Least-Once' guaranteed delivery, where Redis is 'fire and forget'.

                          Combining this with full featured CosmoDb caching instead of Redis would make a compelling low-cost option.

                          • Support sharding in sentinels mode.

                            I didn't find support of client side sharding with sentinels in your Redis API. It will be a nice to have feature. I asked this question on stackoverflow, if you have some solution for the problem, it would be great to hear: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50107173/servicestack-redis-is-sharding-supported-in-sentinel-mode

                              The AutoQuery plugin is great especially for use with many front end grids/tables, however it lacks the ability to Group By. Can you implement it to have feature parity to work with many of the front end grid components (ie kendo grid/devexpress/etc)?

                                  • Support OAuth2 on .net core

                                    At the moment, the *OAuth2 Providers for ServiceStack* library does not support .net core, as explained by mythz in this StackOverflow answer:

                                    > ServiceStack's OAuth2 depends on DotNetOpenAuth which unfortunately doesn't support .NET Core so there's currently no support for OAuth2 - https://stackoverflow.com/a/42344183/969613

                                    Google Authentication is a feature requirement on my current project, so this one thing is preventing us from moving to .net core, support for this would be great.

                                    • Stripe Events

                                      The ServiceStack Stripe library currently doesn't support retrieving of Stripe Events. It would be nice to have this feature especially when working with webhooks.

                                      As it currently stands, I either have to install both the Stripe.net and ServiceStack.Stripe packages in my project, or switch to using just the Stripe.net package.

                                      • ADOMD.net Orm provider addition and would work with AutoQuery

                                        ADOMD.net Cubes as a source of data. I think this would be huge in adding a provider to the mix and utilize Analysis Service cubes to return faster data/query's for warehouse service use.

                                        • MiniProfiler async support

                                          Some older release notes https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/blob/net40/docs/2015/release-notes.md states that Mini Profiler async support is there, but unless I am missing something, using v5.0, I cannot get it to work. Looking at ProfiledCommand, it does not actually overload the async overloads and call IDbProfiler methods.

                                          MiniProfiler integrated this last februari: https://github.com/MiniProfiler/dotnet/commit/8973afb7bd418a37ce38e0805dc3636942ea7788
