Generator™ Makes it Easy!
Generator™ Makes it Easy!
The first ever, Free & Open Source FileMaker developer utility for integrating with web APIs and JSON data.
It makes it faster and easier to connect your FileMaker custom application to any other API-supported website or service.
By creating ready-to-use scripts that are pre-integrated with web and JSON APIs, you can quickly and easily connect your FileMaker solutions to any supported website or service. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!
And now it can generate code that uses the native built in FileMaker 16 functions and script steps.
Generator can help you by guiding you through the process of working with Web APIs. You fill out a form and select from options in drop-down menus to create a request; then you can test it with the push of a button. Once you have it working, press a button, and you have working scripts ready to be pasted into your own solution.
Generator can help you too, by making it easy for you to experiment with APIs, correctly formatting the request, and generating working code when you’re ready to move it into your solution.
Generator takes the tedium out of working with APIs. Once you learn it for one of API, you’ll be able to use it for any API out there that uses JSON
Here are a just a few of the thousands of APIs that Generator can help you with.
Generator analyzes your open database and helps you create a field map between the fields in your database and the data elements in the JSON data
Once the fields are mapped, you click a button and the ready-to-use FileMaker scripts are generated and placed on your clipboard.
Copy and paste the pre-integrated script steps into your FileMaker app. They will connect up to the fields in your app automatically.
Generator requires FileMaker 15 or higher. The FileMaker Scripts it generates work with FileMaker 12 through 18, so once the scripts are in your own file, you can use any version of FileMaker after 12.
