Usage

Using static types

To post/put a customer to some service:

    var customer = new Customer(); 
    customer.Name = "Joe"; 
    customer.Email = "joe@smith.com";
    var http = new HttpClient();
    http.Post("url", customer, HttpContentTypes.ApplicationJson);

To get some data in JSON format:

    var http = new HttpClient();
    http.Request.Accept = HttpContentTypes.ApplicationJson;
    var response = http.Get("url");
    var customer = response.StaticBody<Customer>();
    Console.WriteLine("Name: {0}", customer.Name);

Using dynamic types

To post/put a customer to some service:

    var customer = new ExpandoObject(); // Or any dynamic type
    customer.Name = "Joe";
    customer.Email = "joe@smith.com";
    var http = new HttpClient();
    http.Post("url", customer, HttpContentTypes.ApplicationJson);

To get some data in JSON format:

    var http = new HttpClient();
    http.Request.Accept = HttpContentTypes.ApplicationJson;
    var response = http.Get("url");
    var customer = response.DynamicBody;
    Console.WriteLine("Name {0}", customer.Name);

Both in Static and Dynamic versions, hierarchies are supported.

Perform a get with parameters

To get some data from a service

    var http = new HttpClient();
    http.Get("url", new {Name = "test"});

Should translate to the following url being passed. url?Name=test the value will be urlencoded.

To get some data in JSon format.

    var http = new HttpClient();
    http.Request.Accept = HttpContentTypes.ApplicationJson;
    http.Get("url", new {Name = "test"});

Serialization / Deserialization Conventions

For serialization / deserialization, you can use pretty much any type of naming convention, be it Propercase, CamelCase, lowerCamelCase, with_underscores, etc. If for some reason, your convention is not picked up, you can always decorate the property with an attribute:


   [JsonName("mycustomname")] 
   public string SomeWeirdCombination { get; set; }
