From FileMaker to App Store Step by Step
I was a guest of Richard Carlton’s live stream 5 days in a row to explain, step-by-step, how to build a native app from a FileMaker database, and how to distribute it to iPhone and iPad devices, with and without using the App Store. Here’s a list of all the topics discusse with direct links to the corresponding moment in each recording.
Xgode 2.0 on Steroids
According to our customers. Xgode is the best and easiest to use way to build and push mobile apps made in FileMaker to the users. Now version 2.0, faster, with more controls and better support for the App Store, has been deployed and is ready for you to try out!
Automated Greenhouse Climate Control
As a little boy I grew tomatoes and some herbs in pots on balcony (because we didn’t have a garden at that time). Over time my hobby evolved into growing vegetables in a greenhouse. Since I also like technology and automation, now many of the repeating processes are controlled by Claris FileMaker, Raspberry Pi, Hardwario, LoRa, Node-RED, etc.
Pond powered by FileMaker and Raspberry Pi
A few years ago I made one of my dreams come true. I built a pond in our garden. There are water plants, fish, and other water animals living in the pond. To keep the pond in good conditions, I have automated control of its environment with the help of Claris FileMaker and Raspberry Pi…
Xgode just got better
According to Patrick Cranston, there is no better way to build and push mobile apps made in FileMaker to the users. Well, the best way now got even better as we released a new version…
Another FileMaker Konferenz is over and it has been great again
This year, hosted in Hamburg, Germany, over 180 German-speaking FileMaker developers came to this local conference to learn something new and get inspired. The atmosphere of the 3-day conference was very friendly and forward looking, as, how we already learned during the past 3 years, FileMaker Konferenz always tends to be.
Life before and after Xgode
We can build native iOS apps with the FileMaker platform but we struggled doing that too often. Xgode has changed this for us, and now it is not an exception when we build a FileMaker based native app more than five times on the same day. Why is the life after Xgode so different from the life before it?
Designing Buttons in Pages [updated]
When developing a software (FileMaker solutions, iOS apps in my case) we often need nice looking user interface elements such as buttons. I do not always have time to wait for a designer to create them. Now I don’t have to, because I have discovered I can quickly do that using Apple’s Pages.
