Anatomy of the Carafe Bundle

By August 28, 2019 August 13th, 2020 No Comments

Anatomy of the Carafe Bundle is part of our Carafe feature tour playlist.

The Carafe Bundle JSON file format represents everything needed to browse, share, and deploy a JavaScript package in FileMaker.

It is designed to be compact and portable, but it’s unwieldy for humans. Therefore, Carafe tooling splits up the Bundle into source files.

Jeremiah Small explains the purpose of the five separate source files and how best to work with them:


  • config.json
  • data.json
  • template.carafe


  • meta.json
  • preview.jpg

For more information visit Carafe.FM or the Carafe FMForum.
