WebDirect is a Claris FileMaker deployment option that runs a version of FileMaker in a web browser.


WebDirect requires great FileMaker server resources and good web clients (Safari, Chrome, or Internet Explorer). It uses html 5, CSS, and JavaScript extensively to provide the best FileMaker experience possible without requiring the FileMaker client application.

WebDirect can be a great solution in many situations:

  • Users are remote or working from home away from the server location that require the greatest speed.
  • A company with rigid desktop computing standards and costly application deployment methods that don’t already include FileMaker.

If you’re considering a new way to deploy Claris FileMaker LuminFire can assist with looking at options that fit your work.
