  1. FileMaker has been missing a looping control structure in its function set for…well…a while. So, the introduction of FileMaker 18’s While() function is less a fancy new feature than it is a fix for a long standing limitation in FileMaker’s function set. But even if it’s long overdue, its introduction profoundly changes what it is […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  2. Email is one of the simplest tools used to communicate and send information. Just open a mail client, write a message and press a button to virtually send a letter or message to a recipient. Sometimes, in addition to simple text, we want to enrich our emails with graphical contents and attachments, making it more […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  3. Combining functions, features, or steps in creative new ways can deliver productive results. I was thrilled to discover in FileMaker 18 that the new file-based script steps give us the ability to perform imports natively on FileMaker Server, with no configuration or changes needed. You can also take advantage of Perform Script on Server (PSoS), […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  4. Well, here we are again! With the release of FileMaker 18 we get the third version of the FileMaker Data API. This version brings an iterative advancement in features while maintaining the core functionality that was introduced with V1 of the API in FileMaker Server 17. I’m following suit with an iterative advancement of my previous […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  5. Out With the Old… Anyone who has used FileMaker will be familiar with the powerful import abilities the platform has. Being able to quickly and easily ingest comma- or tab-delimited data and Excel files makes merging multiple data sources into a single cohesive application pretty convenient. However, the import UI that has existed for the […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  6. Over time, without structure, things fall apart. So give them structure, a few conventions, and start to make them more maintainable. Let me say more, at least in the context of JavaScript in your applications (or did you think I was talking about gardens or buildings or such? lol.) As our applications grow larger and […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  7. Server-side Swift is making waves in the web and services worlds, and developers from iOS, web and other coding backgrounds are increasingly joining the server-side Swift community. There’s just one problem (a good one): How do you choose which open-source Swift framework to use? In a just-released post from our friends at Ray Wenderlich, “Vapor […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  8. “Hey Siri…Ask FileMaker…” This story started when we explored iOS Shortcuts to the FileMaker Data API. As we automate tasks by mixing together iOS apps, content on mobile devices and web APIs plus FileMaker, let’s add to our workflow using one of the most powerful functions available to iPhone and iPad users: Siri. Siri to FileMaker, […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  9. Shortcuts, on iOS, are a new way to automate tasks by mixing together apps, content on your iOS device and web APIs into custom workflows. Now, via the FileMaker Data API, you can use shortcuts as a way to interact with your FileMaker solutions. Here’s an example of automatically uploading a photo from your iPhone […] Afficher la totalité du billet

    A Ruby-ish Xmas

    Ruby-ish, rubbish… Get it? Anyways, not like Ruby-ish means bad! Quite the opposite! It’s the day after Xmas and because Ruby is awesome and delivered 2.6.0, we’ll get to play with some of our new X-mas gifts: Kernel#then, Proc#>> and Proc#<<. This is a very Ruby-specific post, but hopefully everyone can get something out of […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  11. ePub is a digital book format which is pretty common nowadays. It’s supported natively by Windows and Android and it’s one of the official formats for digital books in the Apple Books store. In this post I’ll talk about generating ePub files with Ruby and how to painlessly integrate this feature to your application. I’ll […] Afficher la totalité du billet

    Multi-Column Portals

    A colleague recently posed this challenge: is it possible to show two columns in a portal, such that the first row displays records 1 and 2, the second row displays records 3 and 4, etc.? With FileMaker, the answer is usually “Yes!” The Challenge Here are some clarifications of the challenge: The records must be […] Afficher la totalité du billet

Built using Node.js, this version of Admin FM is currently a beta version, but it allows you to access most of the functionality that the FileMaker Admin API allows. What is Zapier? Let’s take a moment […] Afficher la totalité du billet
