Hyprlinkr by Mark Seemann
This post serves as an announcement that my latest open source project Hyprlinkr is available. It's a very sharply focused helper library for the ASP.NET Web API, enabling you to create type-safe hyperlinks between resources in a RESTful API.
It's basically a reusable package of the RouteLinker class I previously presented as a spike. The original idea wasn't mine, but José F. Romaniello's - I just took the idea and created a project out of it.
The library is mostly useful if you build level 3 RESTful APIs with the ASP.NET Web API.
It's available as a NuGet package.
Apart from that, I'll refer you to the project site for more information.

The one thing I am struggling to reconcile, you must have some insight on, is the addition of the link properties to the model.
I am thinking that hyperlinks should be a responsibility of the serializer and not the model...
At the time I wrote that article i was trying different syntax to create a DSL to express a workflow, like the coffee workflow in "Rest on practice".
i think this is an step forward
