How to use C# (.dll) to make a web request with Dynamo Bim

Guys, I’m trying to make some code (C#) and integrate it with the Bim dynamo…
Is it possible to make a web request in C# and retrieve it to dynamo bim?

I kind of made an API in another language and I would like to consume it with C# by integrating it with Dynamo Bim

You should be able to add the DLL as a library as per the instructions halfway down this page where it says Opening the project's dll file.

But that said you likely want to generate the class in a way which makes things more Dynamo friendly. This write up can help with that: Dynamo Unchained 1: Learn how to develop Zero Touch Nodes in C#
