Functional Handler

Functional Handlers

With this module, requests can be handled in a functional manner, reducing the boiler plate code to be written by a web application developer.

NOTE Apps can quickly be created by using a project template.

Basic Structure

The following program will provide a simple web service to increment and decrement given numbers.

using GenHTTP.Modules.Functional;
    var handler = Inline.Create()
                        .Get("/increment", (i) => i + 1) // GET /increment?i=1
                        .Get("/decrement/:i", (i) => i - 1); // GET /decrement/2

As with the webservice module, functions can use various parameter and return types, including IRequest, IResponse, IHandler and Stream. Both synchronous and async methods are supported.
