  1. Recently, we had a client who required restoration of FileMaker backup files for their FileMaker Cloud for AWS 1.17–hosted solution. This seemed a simple enough request—we would download their backup files using the FileMaker Cloud for AWS Admin Console and then re-upload them to the server. However, things did not go smoothly as there was […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  2. I have ulterior motives. I’m not writing about code review practices by the Web team at Beezwax because the world needs another blog post about code review. I’m not going to link to any of the articles I read while preparing this. If you can’t find them yourself, I’m not sure how you found this one. […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  3. Introducing JSON Filter, Map, Reduce. Now that FileMaker has given us a practical and more simplified way to loop in a calculation with the While() function, the doors have opened to other ways to look at looping. While() Is Great! While() is such a great tool and if you are new to the While() function […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  4. Here at the Beezwax, we have been performing research on FileMaker 18 import changes, specifically new support for ESV: Emoji Separated Values. At Beezwax, we develop the bBox FileMaker plug-in (Get it: “Bee Box”?), nicknamed our blog the Beezwax Buzz, refer to our headquarters as the Bee Hive, and our employees (who are always incredibly bee-sy) […] Afficher la totalité du billet
  5. Functional programming is all about passing functions around. Let’s try a practical example in JavaScript, using high order functions, filters, “currying” and more. But first, perhaps a brief historical review is worth a moment of our time… JavaScript, then and now Before JavaScript had the class keyword, there were many ways to write JavaScript code.

  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. “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
  14. 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
