Summary: The Claris FileMaker platform can leverage modern web technologies to integrate new UI elements and JavaScript-based functionality. Several built-in and third party tools use web viewers to enable powerful, flexible web integrations. As our methods have evolved, we’re able to consider using new technologies for microservices and web components in building FileMaker solutions.
