Looking for PyPlugin

Recommended Posts

Chuck    2

I'm looking for information about a FileMaker plugin called "PyPlugin." I have a client with an existing system who has it installed on macOS, but I can't find any information or documentation about it. Given the name, I assume it allows the execution of Python within FileMaker, but this isn't PyFM or PyFileMaker, since first, it's working on a Mac, and second, it's a plugin, not a Python library.

The system has been used for quite some time, so perhaps the plugin isn't available any more, but if anyone can point to any documentation for it, or, of course preferably, a link to be able to download it, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Chuck

      360Works Plugins: FileMaker 16 Compatibility and New Platform
       
      FileMaker 16 is here, and we are ready for this exciting update. At 360Works, we strive to provide the best possible service and support to our customers and to always keep our products compatible and flexible.
      New 360Works Plugin Platform: Major Version Update 

      We are excited to announce that we have a brand new major version update for 360Works plugins! With this new release of FileMaker 16, the plugin architecture has been significantly improved, and 360Works has taken advantage of all those new capabilities with this upgrade. 

      The new 360Works plugin platform will utilize the new features in FileMaker 16 such as better error reporting, calling plugin functions as script steps, and support for enumerated lists. The new platform will now explicitly control the life cycle of the plugin running it as a separate process from FileMaker, which results in plugins being reliably unloaded, making it possible to auto-update without restarting FileMaker and reducing the chance of FileMaker crashing when a plugin fails to load. In addition, it is no longer necessary to install any version of Java to run a 360Works plugin. All plugins on the new platform are fully compatible with FileMaker Cloud. 

      Summary of New Features: 
       
      No longer requires Java installation Can use plugin functions as script steps with a user-friendly GUI for specifying parameters Better error reporting in scripts Compatible with FileMaker Cloud Better compatibility with FileMaker Server for Perform Script on Server and scheduled scripts Each plugin runs in a separate process, increasing reliability and stability Plugins can be reliably unloaded, making it possible to auto-update without restarting FileMaker Where appropriate, plugin parameters can be selected from pull-down lists and checkboxes Support for streaming large container data, allowing unlimited amounts of data to be transferred between FileMaker and the plugin without running out of memory. Compatible with the older plugin API, so you can continue to use your existing scripts and calculations with the new plugins. New plugin versions are available as a paid upgrade. Plugins under valid maintenance, which include Scribe and CloudMail, are available as a free upgrade. 
      You can upgrade and download from the page links below: 
      Scribe, New Version: 3 Document automation in FileMaker
      Email, New Version: 3 Send and receive HTML or plain text email with SMTP, POP, and IMAP from FileMaker

      CloudMail, New Version: 3 Send email marketing and email blasts and track results in FileMaker using the Cloud
      FTPeek, New Version: 2 Upload, download, and manipulate remote files on an FTP server from FileMaker
      JDBC, New Version: 2 Execution of arbitrary SQL statements on one or more JDBC databases
      Charts, New Version: 2 Quick and easy charts and graphs
      RemoteScripter, New Version: 2 Remotely trigger FileMaker scripts on another computer
      ScriptMaster, New Version: 5 Free, general-purpose plugin including file manipulation, URL and network utilities, shell scripting, encryption, and much more
      Web Assistant, New Version: 2 Submit online forms, access any internet resource from FileMaker, and get the contents of any URL as text or as a container 

        SuperContainer Update 
      The SuperContainer Companion Plugin has been updated with new features for FileMaker 16. It is available as a minor point upgrade, at no additional cost for existing SuperContainer license holders.
       
      Here are our current non-plugin products that are compatible with FileMaker 16: 
      Zulu, Current Version: 2.1 Turns any FileMaker Server into a shared calendar server, sync FileMaker to iOS, OS X, Google Calendar, and Exchange/Office 365 calendars 
      MirrorSync, Current Version: 3.17 Sync FileMaker Server with FileMaker Pro/Go and SQL data sources, take your data anywhere with slow or non-existent network connection
      Web Services Manager, Current Version: 1.63 Publishes your FileMaker scripts as XML Web Services, integrate FileMaker with virtually any other system  
      All Plugins Tested and Compatible with FileMaker 16 

      We have tested our previous generation of plugins with the entire FileMaker 16 platform and older versions of our plugins will continue to work. However, it is recommended that you use the newest versions of our plugins to get all of the benefits outlined above.
      Are you finding several of our products to be helpful? You may want to look into the 360Works Portfolio Bundle, where you can obtain the entire suite of plugins and add-ons with a savings of 75% off of the full price! Special FBA pricing is available for in-house use, contact us for more details.

      Since FileMaker 16 now exports a plugin "source" code with the DDR (even if the plugin is not present) for plugin script steps, it would be helpful to have a way to identify a plugin based upon this "source" code.  It would be immensely helpful if developers could provide this information.  
       
      For reference the "source" code that I'm talking about is "FMmp" in the sample plugin source code.
       
      In the interest of gathering this information, I whipped up a Google Form for data collection.  To reduce misuse, this form is entry-only.  Once created, there is no way to edit a record.  If the information changes over time (say, you would like users to go to a different URL), just make a new record.  I can't speak for everyone else, but FMPerception will likely be using the last record available for each source code.
       
      At some later date, this may be expanded into a larger registry, but for now I'd just like to get some data.  Follow this link to fill out the form:
      FileMaker Plugin Registry Form
       
      I don't have any interest in being the only person with access to this information, so if you would like to view the results, feel free to click here.

      If there is some other registry, just point me to it, and I'll apologize for the distraction.
       
      Thank you very much.

      P.S.  Here's an example of how it looks when FMPerception knows about your plugin:

      Hi I'm trying to develop an interface between my filemaker database and a SOAP service. No where in the wsdl is there any authorisation so I believe I need to send my username and password before the SOAP envelope. I'm trying to do that with Scriptmaster but there are only three input parameters none of which appear useful for generating or inputting the HTTP authorisation Basic that needs to be in place. I can't see the fedex modules which may have had the parameters I needed. Can anybody help/advise or suggest another plugin I should use.
       
      Many thanks for reading this.

      I have a client where we use the Base Elements plugin to transfer data to a web site.
      The web site developer has given us an API, and we use the BE_HTTP_PUT_DATA command for this purpose.
      This is used with FMS14 scheduled script.
      Results are MOSTLY successful. 
      However, occasionally the script will hang. We have put a time limit on the server schedule, and it is supposed to abort if the time limit is passed.
      Though the abort happens, it leaves the scheduled user running, and the only way to disconnect that "hung" user is to use fmsadmin restart fmse.
      After much testing, it appears that somewhere there is a 600 second limit.
      It looks like all instances of failure occur when it takes the web site longer than 600 seconds to return a result.
      Most results return in 530 seconds or greater.
      After emailing Nick Orr at Goya about this, he mentioned the curl option CURLOPT_TIMEOUT.
      The base elements plugin has a command, BE_Curl_Set_Option.
      I have found nothing anywhere in the system that declares this.
      I could try to use the BE_Curl_Set_Option command.
      However, it seems likely that something else in the system might be setting this.
      Some other plugins are use by this system, including 360works Plastic 2.
      Any ideas on where to look for this 600 second limit?
