Check Out the New fmDotNet, Updated for FileMaker Server 18

fmDotNet is one of my pet projects, something that I created when the XML API was first introduced to counter the emphasis that was placed at the time on the PHP API. Since I dabble in .NET I wanted to have something out there that showed that PHP was not the only technology that could be used to integrate with FileMaker apps.

When FileMaker 16 introduced the Data API, I created a new version that used it and updated this version when FileMaker 17 launched. It is time to update it yet again to include the many interesting Data API additions that allow us to retrieve meta-data (layout names, script names, value lists,…) and run scripts directly without any other query.

If you want to use fmDotNet in your .NET projects, then the easiest way to get is to add it as a Nuget package in your project:

If you are interested in the source code and how to interact with the raw Data API from .NET then you can download the full source code on GitHub:
