  1. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    If you go the telegram way I may be able to contribute. I have _NO_ desire to use Facebook/whatsapp or skype, however Telegram Messenger is really good.
  2. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    If you choose Telegram Messenger; you most likely would like to implement: https://core.telegram.org/method/auth.signIn https://core.telegram.org/method/messages.sendMessage and their prerequisits. Before you start acquire an API ID: https://core.telegram.org/api/obtaining_api_id for your own client. If you would like a 3rd option: this video( 02:30 - 35:58 ) may or may not suite your needs for messaging in a FileMaker setup alone:
  3. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    Whatsapp's e2e is not necessarily better than HTTPS from what I understand; while Telegram's e2e is.
  4. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    Ehhh, there is bot API and Telegram API: https://core.telegram.org/api what you really want is to make your own Telegram Messenger client inside FileMaker from what I read. I believe more than 90% of the knowledge you will need to apply was covered in Steve Winter's curl presentation at FM Dev Con 2017 Telegram Messenger is the snappiest IM I ever tried.
  5. Will this be the full procedure for FM16S on a Mac? Once https://brew.sh/ brew install certbot Perpetually; the first of every month or so sudo certbot certonly -w "/Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/htdocs" -d sub.domain.tld ln -s /etc/letsencrypt/live/sub.domain.tld/privkey.pem /Library/FileMaker\ Server/CStore/privkey.pem sudo fmsadmin certificate import /etc/letsencrypt/live/sub.domain.tld/fullkey.pem --keyfile /Library/FileMaker\ Server/CStore/privkey.pem sudo launchctl stop com.filemaker.fms sudo launchctl start com.filemaker.fms Here are some examples on how to use certbot for other purposes: https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html
  6. On a mac or linux( or the windows bash shell ) I would run curl from both the locations and see if you receive the desired response, are you sure this is not a firewall / port forwarding issue? curl http://username:password@ For somewhat legible XML pipe through tidy curl http://username:password@ | tidy -xml -i -wrap 0 Or for SSL curl -k https://username:password@
  7. 7 cool tools for better nerd living

    f.lux FTW!
  8. In my experience the memory issue is usually in the php interpreter's config or the php script not in FileMaker, but who gives you error 7? At what level?
  9. XML Import & Export

    1a) $ git clone https://github.com/TyrfingMjolnir/nmap2fmpxmlresult take port or node or 1b) copy this file's raw representation: https://github.com/TyrfingMjolnir/nmap2fmpxmlresult/blob/master/nmap2fmpxmlresult_port.xslt 2) and modify to fit your needs.
  10. Do you have other browsers installed? Which browser is the default one in your system?
  11. I have no experience using: FMPXMLLAYOUT.php; can you post the file in full? Are you supposed to use this file as a starting point to generate your own php file? I used to use FM CWP w/FX.php; amongst others, to write my own php scripts, these days I mainly use node w/express and/or nginx to achieve the same due to better support with postgres, elasticsearch, and now also FileMaker DATA API
  12. Looks like styleType does not have a corresponding value in the array. For the statement not to break associatively there will have to be an entry of styleType in $V77be71a4[] Philosophical question: How are you going to fix this if you have no access to edit the code?
  13. What is on line 53? The general idea is to set an empty value first that it will not complain about for example $tmp = ""; I do not know which variable is in question. Or you can change error level to error.
  14. Is there a way in AppleScript to trap if the connection is lost and have an AppleScript act on this? At the risk of asking and answering myself( AppleScript below ) repeat tell application "FileMaker Pro" try database "db" on error do shell script "sudo shutdown -r now" with administrator privileges end try end tell delay 59 -- 59 secs end repeat
  15. Raid server setup

    Note to self; never trust autocorrect.
  16. Auto import with dynamic name

    What is the issue at hand? I always do my imports using a $tmp variable works for XML for sure as I use this n times pr day. May also work for the file type of your liking. Set Variable[$tmp, Get( DocumentPath ) & table::filename] Import[$tmp]
  17. Perhaps making new layouts with all fields and no design will suffice in your case?
  18. [ANN] CWP User Group - Monday at DevCon 2017

    I use crontab in combination with postgres FDW( JDBC flavour ) and FX.php for dynamic data to feed the web depending on web load of the project, FileMaker as editorial tool and single source of truth; I use FX.php for writing data from the www to FileMaker.
  19. FileMaker lingo = unix / SQL lingo --- table = table table occurance = table as seen in a specific query layout = view AND / OR CUBE valuelist = sort | uniq as in ORDER BY relationship = part of query AND / OR CUBE You will add a record through a relationship aka related record, in Filemaker there is no need to fiddle with the keys and related keys, you just need to add a record in a related table through a relationship; possibly via a portal.
  20. How many machines? Why not just keep using FileMaker 15 on 1 machine if you are only 1 person?
  21. FQL? or SQL? SQL has this defined as standard: SUBSTR( columnname, 3, 2 ) // Where 3 is starting position and 2 is length of substring.
  22. My experience with installing older FileMaker with current OS is that it does not work as expected. However if you are able to install Mavericks as an example on your hardware, then install older Filemaker this will work, and if you upgrade to current OS, it will usuall keep on working. At least that's what I do for Filemaker 11 Pro Advanced. 1) Install Mavericks 2) Install FileMaker 11 Pro Advanced 3) Upgrade OS to lastest version This may or may not work for your FM 14 S as well
  23. What is the time spent on parsing intervals of 10 000, 100 000, 1 000 000 records 10 fields, datatypes mixed( timestamp, text[5-255], number )? Did you make a benchmark between FM and MBS's methods?
  24. newbie looking for advice

    There are also some videos on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/search?q=filemaker
  25. Raid server setup

    Numbered RAIDs are obsolete. Do yourself a favour and read up on: O3X: https://openzfsonosx.org ) AFPS may work well for a workstation, for a server you will still benefit from running ZFS. I would say the correct setup is to move as much of your solution as possible to RAM. If you move your filmmaker files to the SSD RAID in essence you have moved them to RAM. The single most effective way to improve speed of any server service on a mac regardless of drive spec is to turn off spotlight; I see from your profile that you use Yosemite: sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist According to this link: http://recomhub.com/blog/how-to-disable-or-enable-spotlight-in-mac-os-x-yosemite-mavericks-mountain-lion/
