JavaScript can be used to enhance the capabilities of FileMaker. Appearing through a web viewer, JavaScript code can create interfaces that would be difficult and time consuming to build directly with FileMaker layout objects and scripting.

At our recent FMPUG-MN (FileMaker Pro User Group Minnesota) meeting, we had the privilege of hearing Jeremy Brown (Proof-Geist) share his experiences using a FileMaker JavaScript Development Environment.

Jeremy first presented this topic at the 2021 Pause of Error FileMaker Unconference in Georgia. An article on the topic can be found here.

As you are guided by the video above, details of how to set up this environment can be found at

Thanks, Jeremy, for sharing your knowledge and experience on this topic.
