Last Thursday, we held our first-ever webinar that focused on Karbon, our Framework for Ambitious FileMaker Custom Apps. We briefly touched on Karbon’s purpose and position, Karbon’s data model, and Karbon’s API integration. We also spoke about our tool Generator that helps us generate 95% of the code needed for Karbon. Finally we looked at testing in Karbon and one specific integration with LedgerLink and Quickbooks Online.

 

The webinar was about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Here’s a breakdown of the main points:

You can participate

As Todd mentioned in the webinar, you have the opportunity to participate. We’ve got three ways that you can get involved:

  1. Provide feedback and features.  We want to create an ecosystem of discussion around this framework to discuss ideas and features about Karbon. There’s great thoughts out there in the community, and we want to know those.
  2. Pay us to add features.
  3. Become a Patron. Support us through Patreon so that we can hire someone to work exclusively on Karbon.

 

We are excited about Karbon. It is ambitious for complex custom apps, and we think it is sorely needed in the community. We all need a framework from which to start. Karbon is it.
