The Fast & Free Tool to Implementing JavaScript In FileMaker

JavaScript capabilities in FileMaker have only recently started to become mainstream, with native JSON functions, two robust JSON APIs, a Node.js server that ships with the product, and a pure JavaScript Admin Console. It seems clear that FileMaker, Inc., has aligned behind JavaScript on numerous levels, and there has been increasing interest in JavaScript in the FileMaker developer community.

Unfortunately, working with JavaScript in FileMaker isn’t exactly straightforward. It takes a lot of time and effort to implement and maintain required specialized techniques, which deters many developers on the platform.

After implementing JavaScript for our FileMaker clients, we quickly realized there had to be a better way. That’s why we built Carafe, a free, open source project that streamlines the process of integrating and working with JavaScript in FileMaker.

Announcing Carafe

Carafe provides built-in package management, versioning of your implementation, simplified debugging, round-trip integration with JavaScript code editors. You can easily integrate and configure JavaScript libraries such as Datatables.js, Google Maps, rich text editors, an image gallery, calendar, charting, and so much more.

A Free, Open-source Solution

We want to share Carafe to help other developers customize their FileMaker implementations with JavaScript, so we’ve decided to make the solution publicly available. It’s open-source, so you can download the files and make it your own. In fact, we encourage you to add to it and share your upgrades with others.

Launching Soon

Carafe is coming soon! Get the files first by signing up for alerts here.
