REST service access using C# 4.0 dynamic programming

branch: master
README.md

Dynamic REST

This is a small project demonstrating REST service access, working against JSON data and XML data using late-bound dynamic code using the new dynamic programming features being added to c# 4.0.

JSON data http://www.nikhilk.net/CSharp-Dynamic-Programming-JSON.aspx

REST client http://www.nikhilk.net/CSharp-Dynamic-Programming-REST-Services.aspx

Basic usage

  • To get an instance of RestClient use the RestClientBuilder fluent interface:

    var client = new RestClientBuilder()
            .WithAcceptHeader("application/json")
            .WithUri("http://some.uri")
            .WithOAuth2Token("token")
            .Build();
    

    ss

  • Issue a GET

    var response = client.Get();
    
  • Navigate the response

    Given this response:

      {
        article:{
          images:[
            { src:'http://some.uri/image1.png' },
            { src:'http://some.uri/image2.png' }
          ]
        }
      }
    

    You can navigate using the following dynamic syntax:

      var image2src = response.Result.article.images[1].src;
