A couple of weeks ago we had countless members looking fo Python Tools for FileMaker. For those of you looking, here is another addition to to FileMaker-Python family by Mikhail Edoshin and from the tests I've ran so far it is a very good one!
PyFM is a FileMaker® plug-in that allows you to write plug-in functions in Python® programming language. This is a first version of the plug-in targeted to early adopters, which means that to benefit from it you'll have to program in Python. If you'd rather program solely in FileMaker, please wait for the next version, which will offer traditional ready-to-use functions.
Note that this is a beta version that may not be stable and may even crash FileMaker.
The Zip function creates a Zip archive from the passed containers or field names; for the latter it automatically collects data from the found set or related table.

FileMaker is easy-to-use database software; it is probably a single database application that scales from a personal tool made by a non-programmer to a multi-user enterprise app.
Not familiar with Python?
Python is a general-purpose programming language used in many fields from scientific research to game development. Python is simple to start with and has a remarkable number of ready-to-use modules nearly for everything. Read more about Python from the official site.
