Modern FileMaker – Server at the Center

Last week, Claris released FileMaker 19.5. Although there were features for FileMaker Pro and Go, Claris FileMaker Server got the lion’s share of the updates. We aren’t surprised by their focus, as the center of innovation and automation has shifted from the FileMaker file to the FileMaker server over the last few years. The Modern FileMaker Revolution is centered on the server. Tired: Centered on the user and the file For most of its history, FileMaker users and developers focused […] The post

Building a modular picker with an OnTimer Script

It’s common in Claris FileMaker to create picker windows. Imagine selecting a customer for many different parts of your app: Invoices, Work Orders, Sales Orders. How can you reuse the same customer picker and have the result from the picker target different tables? One technique that we use here at Proof+Geist is to use the Install OnTimer script step along with a handler script.  The components are: Calling script, with context-dependency Handler script, with context-dependency Picker window Pi

Managing authentication for FileMaker-backed web apps

One of the wonderful things about Claris FileMaker is its ability to power web apps. However, doing so brings up questions about authentication. For instance, how do you allow a user to securely log into a web app? Once they’ve logged in, how can information about the user be easily collected, displayed, and changed according to the user’s role and permission set in that web app? For Next.js there is a great library to handle secure authentication: NextAuth. Because NextAuth […] The post Managi

Deciding on a single or multi-file FileMaker solution is not a good proxy for how complex the system is – a complex system can comprise one file, just as a simple system can comprise multiple files.

Towards A Better JavaScript Development Environment

I have tried to find a way to write JS code that makes it fairly easy. And by “easy,” I mean “make it so that FileMaker developers don’t have […] The post Towards A Better JavaScript Development Environment appeared first on Geist Interactive. View the full article
