fmcloud.fm new web site launch. Your databases in the cloud on Linux/Docker in 5 minutes from now. Free trial.By fabriceN
It has never been easier to find your way among FileMaker license or to deploy a server in the cloud.
fmcloud.fm is a unique hosting service, based on a docker/Linux architecture. According to @Nick Lightbody's benchmark on Medium, our architecture is 4 times faster (yes, 400%!) than a standard Windows/VPS service.
And… we've got a free trial!
Your databases could literally be in the cloud in 5 minutes from the moment you click this link.
As a Claris partner, we also resell FileMaker licenses. Buying the license from us has some extra benefits, one of them being a nicely formatted PDF document with all information about the license, including download links. In order to be able to generate this document from our FileMaker based CRM, I needed to find a way to include functional web links in it. So I wrote a custom function that does it, without needing any plug-ins or other external technologies.
The custom function simply takes a PDF saved from FileMaker, and adds a link to it. As long as you know what page and where on that page you want the link to be, you can modify your PDF that easily.
No plug-ins are needed, no web viewer, so it works in the whole platform, including WebDirect and server-side scripts.

I updated my SwiftFM repo for the FileMaker 19 Data API.
Notable improvements include support for the new `validateSession()`, and moving the server `message` into the completion block. So now you can access the message in the closure, where it's more helpful. Better examples as well. Give it a ⭐️ on GitHub if you find it useful. Thanks! 😘
