ASP.NET Minimal APIs Made Easy...

FastEndpoints is a developer friendly alternative to Minimal APIs & MVC

It nudges you towards the REPR Design Pattern (Request-Endpoint-Response) for convenient & maintainable endpoint creation with virtually no boilerplate.

Performance is on par with Minimal APIs. It's faster, uses less memory and does around 35k more requests per second than a MVC Controller in our benchmarks.

public class MyRequest 
{
	public string FirstName { get; set; }
	public string LastName { get; set; } 
}
public class MyResponse 
{
	public string FullName { get; set; }
	public string Message { get; set; } 
}
public class MyEndpoint : Endpoint<MyRequest, MyResponse>
{
		public override void Configure()
		{
				Post("/hello/world");
				AllowAnonymous();
		}

		public override async Task HandleAsync(MyRequest r, CancellationToken c)
		{
				await SendAsync(new()
				{
						FullName = $"{r.FirstName} {r.LastName}",
						Message = "Welcome to FastEndpoints..."				
				});
		)
}
