Requests, service discovery, load balancing. Enhances the built-in HttpClient with an IHttpClient interface with retry policy using Polly and adds a possibility to easily use Consul service discovery and Fabio load balancing mechanisms, as well as switching between the different implementations.


This document is for the latest MSHelper.HTTP 1.0.0 release and later.

dotnet add package MSHelper.HTTP


-- MSHelper


Extend IMSHelperBuilder with AddHttpClient() that will register the required services.

public static IMSHelperBuilder RegisterMSHelper(this IMSHelperBuilder builder)
    // Other services.
    return builder;

Then, simply inject IHttpClient (and optionally HttpClientOptions to resolve services URLS) to execute HTTP requests.

public class SomeService
    private readonly string _webService1Url;
    private readonly IHttpClient _client;

    public SomeService(IHttpClient _client, HttpClientOptions options)
        _client = _client;
        _webService1Url = options.Services["web-service1"];

    public async Task FooAsync()
        var dto = await _client.GetAsync<Dto>($"{_webService1Url}/data");


--- type - sets the IHttpClient message handler, if none is specified then the default handler will be used, other possible values: consul, fabio. --- retries - number of HTTP request retries using an exponential backoff. --- services - dictionary (map) of service_name:service_url values that can be used to invoke the other web services without a need to hardcode the configuration URLs, especially useful when service discovery mechanism or load balancer is available.
