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. Add support for expand object graph on request by default out of the box

    It would be great to have the option to expand by request descendant objects indicating route or getting href attribute with route by default.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Update links in Community resources

    I went trough the links in chapter:
    Community Resources September 20, 2015
    on page:

        <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="http://docs.servicestack.net/create-webservice-from-scratch">http://docs.servicestack.net/create-webservice-from-scratch</a>
    

    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.

  7. 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:

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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 =)

  12. 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)?

  13. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. Update Kotlin docs to reflect the fact that it is now supported in Android Studio by default

    http://docs.servicestack.net/kotlin-add-servicestack-reference should be updated to reflect the fact that Google now provides first class support for Kotlin in the IDE

  19. ServiceStack should has native support for building microservice

    Microservice is the modern and hot trending architectural design pattern now, ServiceStack should has builtin feature to support building microservice. In Java world they have Spring Boot / Spring Cloud to wire together other open source technologies such as Nextflix Ribbon, Eureka, Kafka etc. to build microservice.

    Basically, ServiceStack should be identified itself to be not only a framework of choice to build not only RESTful webservice but also a full-fledged platform such as the Java's Spring framework
