The New Execute FileMaker Data API Script Step

September 18, 2020 — Just introduced in FileMaker 19, the new Execute FileMaker Data API script step offers us another way to gather data from our FileMaker apps. Like its big brother, the Data API, this script step returns data in JSON format, as a JSON array. Unlike the Data API, this runs directly in your app using the FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go, or WebDirect clients. This will even run on a local file that is not hosted. Join us as we examine how it works and explore different scenarios where you might use it.

Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You — FileMaker and Webhooks

September 4, 2020 — Sometimes your FileMaker solution needs to receive data in a format set by the sender and the sender insists that it needs a URL to send it to. How do you tackle that? In this webinar, Wim Decorte, Senior Technical Architect at Soliant Consulting shows why you’ll need a webhook to do this and why it’s really not that scary. In fact he claims it’s actually a lot of fun. That’s Wim for you.

FileMaker iOS App SDK

August 14, 2020 – With the FileMaker iOS App SDK, you can deploy a custom FileMaker application using existing enterprise deployment methods and use custom launch icons, all without having to install FileMaker Go on your iOS device. In another one of our virtual CAFDA meetings, Matt Hintz, Senior Application Developer at Soliant Consulting, discusses the process for setting up your app in Xcode, and the challenges of maintaining your application for mobile users.

Adopting Cloud Infrastructure with the FileMaker Platform

July 10, 2020 – Considering the many options in the shifting landscape of cloud providers and offerings, how does the FileMaker Platform fit into your cloud strategy? Mike Duncan, Senior AWS Cloud Engineer at Soliant Consulting, examines and explores strategies for cloud adoption and how to evaluate and plan for cloud migration. He also presents best practices that can be applied to the FileMaker Platform. He shows some behind the scenes infrastructure we have invested in at Soliant and demos several ways to expand on Cloud technology and in a FileMaker deployment.

FileMaker & HIPAA

June 19, 2020 – Healthcare is one of the highest growth industries in the world, but are you prepared to support it? Perhaps you’ve contemplated projects that require HIPAA compliance, but aren’t sure what that will require of you and your development team. Maybe you’re familiar with HIPAA, but not the implications of HITECH, or you’re uncomfortable with the prospect of expanding access to compliant systems for clients who are now working remotely.

With nearly two decades of experience developing for regulated environments, Heather McCue, Lead FileMaker Developer at Harmonic Software Production Studios, discussed the obligations and requirements associated with HIPAA-compliant projects. She also shared compliance-specific techniques, best practices, and other considerations for development and supporting compliance across multiple environments.

Meet Claris FileMaker 19

June 5, 2020 – Claris FileMaker 19 is Claris’ first open platform, allowing developers to extend the platform with shareable add-ons, making it even faster for anyone to build modern apps.

FileMaker has always enabled developers, at all skill levels, to create custom apps to improve their workplaces. Now, developers can extend the platform using AI and JavaScript and even package their work as plug-and-play add-ons others can use.

Create in a snap. Extend the platform. Build smarter apps.

Introducing Carafe v3

May 15, 2020 – Since its launch last August, Carafe, Soliant’s open source FileMaker JavaScript integration tool, has been undergoing continual development. These improvements have led to easier configuration and deployment, simple upgrade paths, and support for offline libraries. In this webinar, we introduced Carafe v3 and demonstrated how you can easily integrate JavaScript libraries into your FileMaker apps.

What’s in a Name? Naming Conventions in FileMaker

May 1, 2020 – Every day that we develop in FileMaker we are naming scripts, table occurrences, variables, fields and many more. We don’t always take the time to consider how we should name things in structured manner and how this can improve our efficiency as a developer. In this workshop we discussed best practices utilized by our Soliant Consulting team and open a discussion for how others approach this method.

Animated Alerts Using Native FileMaker

April 17, 2020 – As it becomes easier to connect your FileMaker to other systems, it’s even more important to keep your FileMaker UI as impressive as these other systems. Our guest Chris Conger from Recruiting Pro Software shares his own version of toast alert to do toast style animated alerts in native FileMaker.
