Getting started

Adding the package to a Visual Studio project

  1. From within Visual Studio, open the Nuget Package Manager
  2. Search for "dimension data"
  3. Click Install
  4. The package will install its dependencies, the Newtonsoft.Json for serializing JSON and Microsoft's ASP.NET WebApi client for sending XML requests over HTTP
