RestClient for Unity 🤘

Supported Unity versions 2017.2 or higher

Proyecto26.RestClient logo

This HTTP/REST Client is based on Promises to avoid the Callback Hell ☠️ and the Pyramid of doom 💩 working with Coroutines in Unity 🎮, example:

var api = "https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com";
RestClient.GetArray<Post>(api + "/posts", (err, res) => {
  RestClient.GetArray<Todo>(api + "/todos", (errTodos, resTodos) => {
    RestClient.GetArray<User>(api + "/users", (errUsers, resUsers) => {
      //Missing validations to catch errors!
    });
  });
});

But working with Promises we can improve our code, yay! 👏

RestClient.GetArray<Post>(api + "/posts").Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog ("Success", JsonHelper.ArrayToJson<Post>(response, true), "Ok");
  return RestClient.GetArray<Todo>(api + "/todos");
}).Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog ("Success", JsonHelper.ArrayToJson<Todo>(response, true), "Ok");
  return RestClient.GetArray<User>(api + "/users");
}).Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog ("Success", JsonHelper.ArrayToJson<User>(response, true), "Ok");
}).Catch(err => EditorUtility.DisplayDialog ("Error", err.Message, "Ok"));

<configuration>
  <config>
    <add key="repositoryPath" value="./Assets/Packages" />
  </config>
</configuration>

The package to search for is Proyecto26.RestClient.

Getting Started 📚

The default methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, HEAD) are:

RestClient.Get("https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/1").Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("Response", response.Text, "Ok");
});
RestClient.Post("https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts", newPost).Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("Status", response.StatusCode.ToString(), "Ok");
});
RestClient.Put("https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/1", updatedPost).Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("Status", response.StatusCode.ToString(), "Ok");
});
RestClient.Delete("https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/1").Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("Status", response.StatusCode.ToString(), "Ok");
});
RestClient.Head("https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts").Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("Status", response.StatusCode.ToString(), "Ok");
});

And we have a generic method to create any type of request:

RestClient.Request(new RequestHelper { 
  Uri = "https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/photos",
  Method = "POST",
  Timeout = 10000,
  Headers = new Dictionary<string, string> {
    { "Authorization", "Bearer JWT_token..." }
  },
  Body = newPost, //Content-Type: application/json
  BodyString = "Use it instead of 'Body' if you want to use other tool to serialize the JSON",
  SimpleForm = new Dictionary<string, string> {}, //Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
  FormSections = new List<IMultipartFormSection>() {}, //Content-Type: multipart/form-data
  ChunkedTransfer = true,
  IgnoreHttpException = true, //Prevent to catch http exceptions
}).Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("Status", response.StatusCode.ToString(), "Ok");
});

With all the methods we have the possibility to indicate the type of response, in the following example we're going to create a class and the HTTP requests to load JSON data easily:

[Serializable]
public class User
{
  public int id;
  public string name;
  public string username;
  public string email;
  public string phone;
  public string website;
}
  • GET JSON
var usersRoute = "https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users"; 
RestClient.Get<User>(usersRoute + "/1").Then(firstUser => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("JSON", JsonUtility.ToJson(firstUser, true), "Ok");
});
  • GET Array (JsonHelper is an extension to manage arrays)
RestClient.GetArray<User>(usersRoute).Then(allUsers => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("JSON Array", JsonHelper.ArrayToJsonString<User>(allUsers, true), "Ok");
});

Also we can create different classes for custom responses:

[Serializable]
public class CustomResponse
{
  public int id;
}
  • POST
RestClient.Post<CustomResponse>(usersRoute, newUser).Then(customResponse => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("JSON", JsonUtility.ToJson(customResponse, true), "Ok");
});
  • PUT
RestClient.Put<CustomResponse>(usersRoute + "/1", updatedUser).Then(customResponse => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("JSON", JsonUtility.ToJson(customResponse, true), "Ok");
});

Custom HTTP Headers and Options 💥

HTTP Headers, such as Authorization, can be set in the DefaultRequestHeaders object for all requests

RestClient.DefaultRequestHeaders["Authorization"] = "Bearer ...";

Also we can add specific options and override default headers for a request

var currentRequest = new RequestHelper { 
  Uri = "https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/photos",
  Headers = new Dictionary<string, string> {
    { "Authorization", "Other token..." }
  }
};
RestClient.GetArray<Photo>(currentRequest).Then(response => {
  EditorUtility.DisplayDialog("Header", currentRequest.GetHeader("Authorization"), "Ok");
});

currentRequest.UploadProgress; //To know the progress by uploading data to the server
currentRequest.DownloadProgress; //To know the progress by downloading data from the server
currentRequest.Abort(); //Abort the request manually

And later we can clean the default headers for all requests

RestClient.CleanDefaultHeaders();
