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 Sign in with Apple auth provider

    Add Sign in with Apple auth provider support for servicestack. Same way as there is facebook, google and other providers

  2. Expose cancellable async methods in clients through an interface

    IHttpRestClientAsync exposes various method-specific async methods as well as SendAsync.

    SendAsync has a cancellation token parameter in its signature:

    Task<TResponse> SendAsync<TResponse>(string httpMethod, string absoluteUrl, object request, CancellationToken token = default);
    

    while other methods (GetAsync, PostAsync etc) don't

    https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/blob/6366ba9316d1380b920cd854042bef8649f630c5/src/ServiceStack.Interfaces/IHttpRestClientAsync.cs

    Implementations of IHttpRestClientAsync (like JsonHttpClient) do have the methods which support then token:

        public Task<TResponse> GetAsync<TResponse>(IReturn<TResponse> requestDto, CancellationToken token) =>
    
    SendAsync<TResponse>(HttpMethods.Get, ResolveTypedUrl(HttpMethods.Get, requestDto), null, token);

    https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/blob/9de810436e0a589be002dff5bdfcf203081e6a0b/src/ServiceStack.HttpClient/JsonHttpClient.cs#L699

    and in fact all the method-specific implementations just call SendAsync under the hood.

    Without token-aware methods exposed through an interface I cannot use them in a depencency-injected IServiceClient and its derivatives. They are only usable if…

    Yeah the clients async interfaces weren’t ideal, it started from the initial impl of the .NET WebRequest clients being implemented using the older APM model which didn’t use them. Other implementations just kept the same API.

    Anyway since it’s a source-compatible change (will require a rebuild after upgrade), I’ve added an optional CancellationToken to all Async Service Client APIs in this commit:

    https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/commit/dc6a281e80987b522c218bc82ce9cfefb111ea86

    This change is now available from v5.8.1 that’s now available on MyGet:

    https://docs.servicestack.net/myget

  3. PHP Service Clients and DTO generation

    Our clients wish to consume our services via PHP.

    ServiceStack support for PHP via Service Clients, DTO generation and possibly 'Add Service Reference' would be great!

    We’re going to support Server Events for alt languages through ServiceStack’s new gRPC support which has a dedicated “Server Stream” rpc channel that’s specifically designed for persisten server communications like Server Events.

    There’s a Dart Server Events example in the docs:

    https://docs.servicestack.net/grpc#server-stream-grpc-services
    https://docs.servicestack.net/grpc-dart

    May look at improving the development UX in future with an “Adapter” of the gRPC stream to provide a declarative UX for registering handlers.

  6. Add SqlListLazy to OrmLite

    When using raw SQL, due to having complex CTE queries, that does not start with SELECT but rather with WITH, the SqlList method loads everything in one go.
    This is unfortunate when the result set is large, and we would like to process one row at a time, and avoid the memory overhead, and waiting time, of getting the whole result set at once.

    The SelectLazy would have solved this problem, if it had supported any arbitrary SQL, but it does not.
    According to the documentation SelectLazy can do this if the SQL starts with SELECT however, for our…

  7. Possibility to download previous version of ServiceStackVS extension

    Since latest update of ServiceStackVS seems to introduce a bug in VS 2015, the option "Add ServiceStack Reference" is no longer appearing in project context menu. In addition, the ability to update ServiceStack References is broken too.

    Where can I download previous version of this extension ?

  8. Support for Visual Studio 2019

    VS2019 will be released tomorrow, but the current VSIX is not compatible with it. Aside from bumping the supported versions, it should also be updated to an AsyncPackage.

  10. mongodb / nosql support

    For a few of us, we are constrained with having to use mongodb or other nosql databases instead of an RDBMS.

    It would be good if we have a some sort of native mongodb support or at least a few examples/patterns of how to go about a full mongodb/servicestack solution. I understand that we have examples of redis usage but, we do not have authentication and other similar aspects as examples.

    Love the tooling still! yet hate to work with anything else now (you spoiled us!) that I have to work with mongodb.

    Cheers!

  11. OrmLite.PostgreSQL support for HStore types (Dictionary)

    Support of HStores when using Dictionary<string,string> or as a new field attribute.

    HStores (key values) are very good in certain scenarios (logging/auditing) and complex parsing is easier to do in .NET than in SQL.

    Custom SQL that SELECT's data is easy, but not easy to insert/save hstore in custom sql.

    Also Npgsql already supports them.

    More info here:

  12. 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.

  13. Create Auto Crud

    Take a project like http://www.mattjcowan.com/funcoding/2013/05/11/restful-api-and-ui-for-typed-views-and-typed-lists/
    and lift it to the next level.
    Purpose: Point ActiveScaffold with AutoCrud to your database, and you get a half sensible CRUD web interface to maintain it. In other words, an instant backoffice.
    This is orthogonal to any other API usage of ServiceStack.

    Inspired by the Rails equivalent "https://github.com/activescaffold/active_scaffold&quot; that is very nicely designed, with both configuration and override possibilities.

  15. Support PostgreSQL array parameters

    Currently to send in an integer array as a parameter, I have to use format.

    var ids = "ARRAY[1,2,3]";
    var sql = "SELECT 1 = ANY[{0}]".Fmt(ids);
    Db.Query<Model>(sql);

    I would rather use syntax like this:
    var ids = new int[] {1, 2, 3};
    var sql = "SELECT 1 = ANY(@ids)";
    Db.Query<Model>(sql, new { ids });

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
