FileMaker Portland – Integrating Web Services

Thank you to everyone who attended the January FileMaker Portland meetup. The evening was packed with presentations about how people are leveraging FileMaker 16’s JSON support to connect to web services.

Some of the integrations we discussed were:

  • Magento – This popular e-commerce platform has REST and SOAP APIs. Use them to connect data about products, customers, and orders to FileMaker.
  • SmartyStreets – Supercharge your address entry fields with five different APIs.
  • Google Charts – A Javascript library for creating interactive HTML5/SVG charts.
  • FileMaker – Why not the other way around? Make POST, GET, PUT, and DELETE calls to FileMaker using the Data API.

Have something you’d like to share or discuss with other FileMaker developers? Consider attending the next meetup.


FileMaker Academy: JSON and Multiple Script Parameters

On Tuesday, January 23, Rohit Roy from IT Solutions presents FileMaker JSON and Multiple Script Parameters.

Short for Javascript Object Notation, JSON has quickly become a web standard. Since FileMaker 16 gave us new functions to easily implement JSON into our code, many developers are switching to JSON as a native method to support multiple script parameters. In the first half of this webinar, we will cover the basics of JSON and the new FileMaker JSON functions. In the second half, we will learn how to use JSON to pass multiple script parameters without plugins or custom functions!
