Integrating FileMaker’s Data API and Ruby with the fmrest-ruby gem

We often work on projects that intersect two technologies near and dear to us: FileMaker and Ruby. This allows us to build robust web applications in Ruby on Rails, integrated with data sources from FileMaker solutions. When Claris introduced the FileMaker Data API we were naturally curious to try it out. At the time there […] Afficher la totalité du billet

OOP Fundamentals: The Decorator Pattern

The decorator pattern is one of my favorite patterns. It is simple, extensible and powerful. It feels like it follows the essence of object oriented programming beautifully. Sadly though, it is also easy to be misused or misunderstood. So, in this post I will show you the essence of the decorator pattern, illustrated with a […] Afficher la totalité du billet

OOP Fundamentals: The Dependency Inversion Principle

The dependency inversion principle is one of the cornerstones of object-oriented programming. Without it, there is no object-oriented design. It’s that important. What amazes me about this principle is that people can spend years working with an object-oriented language and never learn about it, never take the next step towards becoming a senior developer, especially […] Afficher la totalité du billet

Something out of Nothing: Null Object Pattern

We often think of nothing as, well, nothing. It's when something doesn't exist and therefore cannot be interacted with. So in our code, we try account for having nothing. No User? No problem. The Null Object Pattern is also an example of Composition over Inheritance. Afficher la totalité du billet

Math in a FileMaker field, for Inputter’s sake

Inputting purchase orders or invoices in accounting systems can be quite a hassle for bookkeepers, accountants, data administrators or anyone who simply has the role of "Inputter". Each company may have its own invoicing theme and sometimes information is not always ready for easy input. Afficher la totalité du billet

Ruby’s Safe Navigation Operator &. and is it a Code Smell?

Ruby's safe navigator operator "&." isn't inherently bad. In fact if you have something like "foo && foo.bar" in your code, Rubocop will admonish you for not using safe navigation. However, using "&." too often in your code is probably something to avoid. Afficher la totalité du billet
