  1. Writing a Markdown Compiler – Part 2

    Hello, and welcome to the second part of the Markdown Compiler series! In case you’ve missed it, here is the first part. In this part we’ll talk about the second step in compiling: Parsing – also known as Syntactic Analysis. This part has a bit more theory, so it might take some time to digest.

  2. After a bit of hiatus, we are pleased to release bBox version 0.86. bBox is a free utility plug-in to extend FileMaker solutions to easily use code libraries and OS X functions from Python, Ruby, AppleScript, JavaScript, Bash, XPath, and SQLite. Included is a demo file that has over 180 examples of how you can put its functions to work for you. […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  3. Apple’s Server 5.x has a rather different Apache configuration compared to the core Mac OS setup or those used in previous versions of Server. In particular, an instance of Apache is used as a proxy to any ‘backend’ copies of Apache. Unfortunately, this setup has the proxy always listening (attached) to ports 80 & 443, even […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  4. Writing a Markdown Compiler

    Have you ever wanted to make your own programming language? Maybe a template engine? A JSON parser? If you have ever built any of those, you might have noticed it’s not exactly easy to get started. There are a lot of concepts to digest before you get going. That’s why lots of devs just give […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  5. In Part 1 of this series, “Introducing LOgiCATOR,” I mentioned that LOgiCATOR grew out of a search interface I developed for a project several years ago. In ways we’ll briefly consider here, it wasn’t extensible, but all that has changed. As that early search interface grew into LOgiCATOR, it made a quantum leap in context independence. The […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  6. Introduction If you are FileMaker developer, but new to the notion of web APIs and web development in general, then you might take on a kind of deer-in-the-headlights look when confronted with FileMaker Server 16’s new Data API, aka “REST API”. Fear Not! It really is simpler and more straightforward than you might expect. I […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  7. We’re excited to announce the release of LOgiCATOR, a new modular search interface for FileMaker. It’s designed as a module you can drop into a FileMaker application and, with minimal configuration, add a rule-based search interface to any number of layouts in that solution. LOgiCATOR is also a springboard for learning about some great new […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  8. It’s here and I feel like I have to tell the whole world… which is what I am doing! Now that FileMaker 16 is officially announced, there are lots of exciting things to talk about that are now possible. I think one of the most powerful new features that have been introduced in version 16 is the capability […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  9. While working on the third installment of Fun with FileMaker Button Bars, I was served a reminder of why it’s good to test the stuff you write about using the latest software updates (even if they just arrived that very morning). I had written up two tips for designing good-looking FileMaker button-bar icons and decided […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  10. If you’ve been working with FileMaker, then I don’t have to sell you on the fact that it’s a great solution to help you manage your data. Whether you’re an in-house developer, a consultant, or just starting to explore what is possible with this powerful platform, you will at some point come across the need […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  11. In Part 1 (“Check Please,”) and Part 2 (“Expert Panel,”) of this series, we had some fun doing things with button bars that showed off some of their unique usefulness within the FileMaker design-layer toolbox. Often as not, your button bars are going to include icon labels, with or without a supporting text label, and you want those icons … Continue reading Fun with FileMaker Button Bars, Part 3: Tips for Designing Great Icons → Afficher la totalité du billet
  12. A well-designed Domain Specific Language (DSL) can help you be more productive as a developer, thus making you, your team and your clients happier. In this post, I’ll guide you through the design and creation of a simple DSL to create EPUB files. We’ll start with a regular API and refactoring until we get to … Continue reading Writing DSLs: The joy of human consumable APIs → Afficher la totalité du billet
  13. InspectorPro 6

    InspectorPro 6 Highlighting insight, performance and collaboration Wow! InspectorPro 6 is finally here. Can’t even believe it. It was such a massive undertaking. Lots of great new things and many improvements. Really proud of this release. In the immortal words of the late Steve Jobs… “This is our best version ever”. The focus has been … Continue reading InspectorPro 6 → Afficher la totalité du billet
  14. Export Just What You Need in FileMaker

    example file: Airplane_Maintenance.fmp12 The Lesson of Context One of the first lessons I learned with FileMaker is that of context! Layouts, reports, calculations, scripts, and so on all act from the perspective of a single Table Occurrence (TO) — the “context” — pulling in data from related tables as needed. Generally, the record set being … Continue reading Export Just What You Need in FileMaker → Afficher la totalité du billet
  15. Recycle Your Data | Save Space and Money

    A few years ago, I worked on a FileMaker project where the client told us that every week they need to import about 7,000 rows of data that represent some information that this company uses. And every week there might be some modified records, some records that don’t show up any longer, and some new records that … Continue reading Recycle Your Data | Save Space and Money → Afficher la totalité du billet
