RESTfm Goes Open Source – RESTful Web Services for FileMaker Server – FileMaker Today
FMT Newswire Melbourne, Australia – Australian FileMaker solutions provider, Goya Pty Ltd has open sourced their RESTful Web Services product for FileMaker Server. RESTfm allows you to share your FileMaker Server based data over a RESTful Web Service API and allow access to read, create, edit and delete records from any application that has web access.
Previously a paid product, RESTfm is now free and open source, with a paid support model so everyone has the ability to try it and see the benefits for themselves. The RESTfm source code is now available under an MIT licence from GitHub.
“We’ve been using RESTfm for so many things ourselves, but Web Services are still only a small part of the FileMaker world. By making RESTfm open source we can bring the speed, simplicity and power of a REST web model to more FileMaker developers to try out and see the benefits for themselves.” said Nicholas Orr of Goya.
Goya offers a paid annual sponsorship model for RESTfm that allows access to a dedicated support channel and code samples, for $199 for individuals or $399 for companies. The sample code included with the sponsorship option also includes a complete syncing solution, that lets you sync FileMaker Pro and Go to FileMaker Server over RESTfm.
Pricing and Availability:
RESTfm is available for free with no implementation costs, and can be downloaded today from our github repository. Paid support is available for $199 per annum for individuals, or $399 per annum for companies. RESTfm is built on the Custom Web Publishing PHP API of FileMaker Server and as such doesn’t require any concurrent licences to operate or access.
Goya is an Australian based software development company specialising in FileMaker Pro developer tools. For over 15 years, we’ve been developing custom solutions for FileMaker businesses while building up our own suite of developer tools. Starting with BaseElements in 2007 we changed the way developers built their solutions by offering them an analysis tool that worked like FileMaker. In 2010 we created RefreshFM for automating updates and it remains the only product in it’s category for FileMaker developers. Our free FileMaker plugin is widely used and highly regarded by the FileMaker community for it’s extensive functionality. Now with RESTfm for Web Services we’re again re-thinking the things that FileMaker can do and giving more options to developers to extend their solutions. Copyright (C) 1999-2015 Goya Pty Ltd.
