CodeMaze have written a great post with real world examples of using C# and DalSoft.RestClient to consume any REST API. It includes everything you need to know head over there now if you find yourself writing a lots of boilerplate code to consume REST API’s.

Earlier this year I posted about a pet project I’ve been working on DalSoft.RestClient which is a dynamic C# rest client.

I’ve now used it on a number of projects, and it works really for fluently accessing rest api’s (if I do say so myself). So I thought I’d do a quick post on a real life scenario. For a client of mine I’ve recently needed to integrate PushWoosh, so I thought I’d share some code to show how easy it would be to create a PushWoosh SDK with DalSoft.RestClient.

Whenever I’ve wanted to create a SDK for my WebApi’s I’m surprised by the amount of bolierplate code you end up with. HttpClient made things easier for us, but you still end up wrapping HttpClient and passing generics around.

I’ve messed around with .NET 4 dynamic objects before, so I set about creating a dynamic wrapper around HttpClient and a fluent API I could re-use. It’s passed the rule of 3 as I’ve used it for multiple clients. A side note is that it should be trivial to generate DalSoft.RestClient code examples in your WebApi docs.
