The Leading Filemaker Developer Tools

Lua Plug-in for FileMaker – FileMaker Today


This FileMaker plug-in allows developers to write and execute Lua code within their databases. You may also register your own functions (much like FileMaker’s own custom functions) so that you may create your own discrete functions and even classes as you wish. The Lua Socket is included which allows you to make HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, POP, and IMAP calls as well.

This dramatically extends FileMaker’s capabilities. With Lua you can build virtually any logic you need on top of a FileMaker database, and the integration with Web protocols makes building hybrid web/database applications simple.


Lua


Lua is a capable, lightweight, embeddable scripting language.


It combines simple procedural syntax with data constructs based on associative arrays. Lua is dynamically typed, runs by interpreting bytecode for a register-based virtual machine, and has automatic memory management with incremental garbage collection, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping.
