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.

bzBond, open source toolset for FileMaker web integrations

This presentation highlights bzBond, an open source toolset for web integrations. It works with the latest versions of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Server, as well as Claris Pro and Claris Server.

bzBond features include:

  • 😎 Reliably run web UIs and JavaScript libraries in web viewers with an end-to-end approach
  • ⏩ Speed up FileMaker scripts with JavaScript functions
  • 💾 Store and deploy web code
  • 🎉 Keep the JavaScript party going server-side with an extensible microservice

This presentation will cover how, when and why to use bzBond, with development examples and pointers to more resources. It will also mention other tools and libraries building on Claris Platform web viewer technology. Q&A and general discussion around FileMaker web integrations will be encouraged.
