Webservice APIs for Unity Games

Introduction

With the GenHTTP framework you can easily define and host REST web services that support your games written with Unity. As webservices are also written in C# / .NET and can be set up using project templates in a couple of minutes they take less of your time compared to learning advanced technologies such as ASP.NET.

Creating a Project

A new web service API project can be created by utilizing the project templates of the framework. To create a new project, run the following commands in your terminal:

dotnet new -i GenHTTP.Templates
    
    mkdir MyService
    cd MyService
    dotnet new genhttp-webservice
    

This will create a new, already working project that you can modify and extend. It can either be edited in Visual Studio or with an editor of your choice. To run the project, execute:

dotnet run
    

This will make your server available on http://localhost:8080/.

Next Steps

The documentation will show you how to use advanced features such as API key authentication or how to host your app.
