@ is a fluid and nimble SQL powertool designed expressly for FileMaker developers. Implemented via a library of custom functions, @ introduces a fresh perspective to FileMaker SQL (“FQL“). It offers a deep set of tools to help ensure that code written is unbreakable and well structured in any manner a FileMaker developer chooses.
Drawing on tools like Markdown, jQuery, and CoffeeScript, @ offers a nimble, chainable SQL syntax that eliminates the clutter currently associated with FQL. And @ outputs fully formatted, ANSI-compliant queries, making it possible to test and share FQL queries directly in standard internet SQL tools.
For FileMaker developers, @ is truly “SQL Sugar” — designed to sweeten the task of hand coding FQL. It makes it easy to build code that’s exceptionally clear, and that can support complexity without becoming unreadable.
