Recommended Posts

SAN FRANCISCO, May 20, 2020 — Claris International Inc., an Apple subsidiary, today announced the launch of FileMaker 19: the company’s first open platform for developers to rapidly build sophisticated custom apps leveraging direct JavaScript integrations, drag-and-drop add-ons, AI via Apple’s Core ML, and more. Through FileMaker 19, developers can be more productive and businesses can now leverage Claris’ global community of developers, marketplace of add-ons, and existing developer resources to collaboratively solve complex digital problems.

"As cost pressure grows in our rapidly-changing world, companies need to innovate quickly to boost productivity and deliver for their customers,” said Claris CEO Brad Freitag. “That critical agility is at the core of FileMaker 19 as we open the Claris Platform to the most popular programming language on the planet. We’re excited to see what our 50,000 customers will do with a growing set of add-ons and the ability to integrate any of the millions of JavaScript packages."

Meet FileMaker 19: Fast, extensible, smart

FileMaker 19 enables Claris’ global developer community to use the platform they already know to deliver powerful custom apps to more than 1.3 million active users faster than ever before. With FileMaker 19, developers can:

  • Create in a snap with plug-and-play add-ons — Use add-ons like Kanban boards and photo galleries to snap together robust apps faster than ever before, or leverage JavaScript, web services, native FileMaker code and more to create sharable add-ons to sell in the Claris Marketplace. 
  • Extend custom apps with JavaScript  — Use readily-available JavaScript libraries or create custom code to directly embed maps, animated graphics, data visualization, and more into their apps.
  • Build smarter apps — Enable rich user experiences with Core ML machine learning models, support for Siri Shortcuts, and NFC (near field communication) tag reading. Unlock the potential of data with image classification, sentiment analysis, object detection and more.

Additional features

  • Create directly in the cloud — Fast track app deployment by creating apps directly in FileMaker Cloud, skipping the multi-step configuration process and making apps instantly sharable. 
  • Host where you want — In addition to Mac and Windows, FileMaker Server can now be hosted on Linux, an industry standard OS, for high availability and reliability. 

FileMaker 19 beta reviews

  • “This is the most important release in 15 years.” - Todd Geist, Geist Interactive
  • “In FileMaker 19...simple drag-and-drop JavaScript add-ons save hundreds of hours of programming.” - Cris Ippolite, iSolutions 
  • “Add-ons make us much more productive. We already work in a modular approach, but FileMaker 19 makes things much easier.” Claus Lavendt, DataManix

      I know that peer to peer sharing has been deprecated. I also know that it still works on my network between two computers.
      My client has a two-person shop and has been doing peer to peer for years. He wants to upgrade from an old version of FileMaker to 19 because he is getting new computers. He has been hit hard by events this year so he wants to spend the minimum amount.
      My versions of 19 are part of a volume license, so I don't know if p2p sharing is only working because of that. Would it work with two or three individual licenses of 19?

      Hi,
      My issue is that my customer layout has a script trigger on LayOutEnter that sorts my customers portal list by "Active" customers,
      but when I do a go to related record from another table say from quotes or any other the customer layout does not load that customer
      or show my related customer because the OnLayoutEnter script trigger changes it, I would like it to go to the related customer and also sort it by "Active"
      on the list.
      Hope someone can help me with this.
      Thanks,
      Pio

      Hoping someone might have the answer to this. I have two new copies of FM19. I installed on 2 machines (Catalina) but like an idiot accidentality used the same licence key on both machines.
      Not a problem I thought, just trash the app on one machine and delete the <home>/Library/Preferences/com.filemaker.client.pro12.plist  then reinstall and enter the second key (as per Claris instructions).
      But no! each time I reinstall it does NOT ask me for the licence key but automatically picks up the originally entered key.
      So I am kind of stuck. Does anyone know what other files need to be removed for a truly clean uninstall because clearly trashing the app and the preference are not what is needed to clear out the licence key?

      Hey Everyone
       
      We are having this issue with the change of any of this variables
      IOS 13
      FileMaker 18
      FileMaker Server 18
      FileMaker Go 18
       
      We have a Layout for FileMaker go to upload photos from an iPod Touch or iPhone Pro 11, and when we use a script to take the photo directly from the camera works perfectly, but when we use the another one that has to open the library from the device it will happen either of this 2 things
       
      1. It will duplicate on the mini preview the last "good" picture and when try to maximize the picture nothing shows up
      2. It will happen this weird "no signal tv" ( that's how I call this lol ) image and there's no way to see the picture
       
      Discoverys
      On MacOS the pictures looks great, also con iOS , it seems that windows it's not detecting as a valid file when the photo is taken from the library of the iPhone or the iPod Touch (this never happen in older versions of filemaker or iOS)
       
      Any ideas ?
