Curl integrated in c# RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello !
    I need help please!
    How can I run this code in Curl in an application developed in C #

    curl -i -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d '{"node_id":"3","value":"100"}'http://10.194.*****/dimmers/set_level

    This code starts when i press a button ( to light a lamp via a Raspberry web service)

  • curl is just a commandline wrapper around an HTTP call. In .NET you'd use HttpClient to do the same thing.

    var client = new HttpClient()
       BaseAddress = "http:10.194.*****"
    var myData = new {
       node_id = 3,
       value = 100
    //In an async/await method
    var response = await client.PostAsJsonAsync("dimmers/set_level", myData);
    If you really want to rely on an external command like curl (which must be installed into a path that is accessible by the system) then use Process.Start

  • Hi Trabelsi Amine,

    You wouldn't call cURL directly, rather, you'd use one of the following options.

    HttpClient (available from .NET 4.5 on)

    Here is the example in StackOverFlow for your reference.

    You could try to Execute CURL Command using C#. Please refer to the example in the link below.

    Best Regards,
