Looking for an open source PCL for accessing any Web API (read only is fine) RRS feed

  • User801426777 posted

    As a side project while learning c#, I'd like to create a PCL so .NET developers can easily access the  SunLight Foundation's Congress API (https://congress.api.sunlightfoundation.com/.  They currently have Python, Node, and a few other packages, but no .NET.  There must be some other open source .NET projects that provide client side api access to other web based API's that I could glean some best practices from.

    The best one I've found is:  https://github.com/facebook-csharp-sdk/facebook-csharp-sdk  However, it's a pretty robust read/write API that is far more complex than what I would need to implement.  I also looked at the Google Data .NET work, but it's also far richer that what would be needed for a read-only API.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,
