Want to learn how test your REST API fluently in a couple of lines of C# code?

Like this:

public async Task Get_UserWithId1_ReturnsDynamicWithUsernameBretAndOkStatusCode()
   var client = new RestClient("", new Config()
                .SetJsonSerializerSettings(new JsonSerializerSettings { ContractResolver = new CamelCasePropertyNamesContractResolver() }));

   await client
      .Verify(userIsBret => userIsBret.username == "Bret")
      .Verify(httpResponseMessageIsOk => httpResponseMessageIsOk.HttpResponseMessage.StatusCode == HttpStatusCode.OK);

Head over to my post on Code Maze, and your be testing REST API’s using C# in no time at all.

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 wanted something between Simple.Data and angular’s $http service, the main driver was to make my tests as readable as possible. 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.
