Web API Script Pack

What is it?

Makes using ASP.NET Web API's self host with scriptcs easy as cake, much easier than this :)

Highlights:

  • Creates a pre-configured OWIN self host with the default routes already added.
  • Supports configuring the OWIN pipeline
  • Write your controllers as scripts
  • Automatically imports common web api namespaces for you.

Getting started with Web API using the pack

  • Create a new folder for your script i.e. c:\hellowebapi and change to it.
  • Install the Web API script pack scriptcs -install -pre ScriptCs.WebApi2
  • Create a start.csx and paste the code below
using System.Dynamic;

public class TestController : ApiController
{
    public dynamic Get() {
        dynamic obj = new ExpandoObject();
        obj.message = "Hello from Web Api";
        return obj;
    }
}

var webapi = Require<WebApi>();

var server = webapi.
    Configure(typeof(TestController)).
    UseJsonOnly().
    Start("http://localhost:8080");

Console.WriteLine("Listening...");
Console.ReadLine();
server.Dispose();
  • Running as admin type scriptcs start.csx -modules mono on Windows or scriptcs start.csx on Mac/Linux to launch the app.
  • Open a browser to "http://localhost:8080/api/test";
  • That's it, your API is up!

Customizing

You can configure the OWIN host by passing in an Action<IAppBuilder> to the Configure method

var server = webapi.
    Configure(
        typeof(TestController),
        builder=> {
          builder.Use<MyMiddleware>();
        }
    ).
    Start("http://localhost:8080");
