Grokit Tools launches “Grokit Palette”

[Los Angeles, California - Holzkirchen, Germany]

Todd Geist of geist interactive and Wim Decorte of Connecting Data are joining forces to bring a new level of productivity to FileMaker Developers the world over.

Grokit Tools – Tools to live by!

Having spent years deeply involved in the minutia of how FileMaker Pro does what it does, Todd and Wim believe that while FileMaker is the best in its class when it comes to productivity, it can be even better! We have made it our mission to remove the roadblocks that stand between idea and execution!

The first step towards realizing our goal is the release of the “Grokit Palette”, a collection of floating palettes that will significantly speed up your development process in FileMaker.

Some highlights of the tool’s functionality:

* save and restore Data Viewer sets

* visual indication if script debugger is on or off

* define default script steps that go in each new script

* with one click, add a new blank layout with no header or footer

* create a list of your favorite script steps and functions

* maintain a list of the variables you use (and insert them with a simple click)

* work with a floating color palette that stays open as long as you want it to

* copy an RGB(x,x,x) string from the color palette to use in FileMaker’s text formatting functions

* ... and much more

A 21-day trial version is available at http://grokittools.com, together with screenshots of the tool.

PC only for now… but stay tuned this is only the beginning!

The VB plug-in looks really good, i think i might buy a license to play around with. In the mean time though, this is just a curiosity question, did you build the site using dnn nuke?

Yep, the site is built with DotNetNuke. Love it. This way I can update it here from my little hill-side village in Germany and Todd can do the same from LA.

We'r also running a sandbox copy of DNN and the site on one of my web servers so we can try different modules out before we put them live.
