FileMaker includes native functions for building and parsing JSON data. This demo will help FileMaker developers that are at an intermediate to advanced level.
At LuminFire, we believe in using the best tool for the job. And quite often that means using a specialized web service dedicated to that task. Most web services that offer a REST API will accept and return data in JSON. With FileMaker cURL functions that use Insert from URL, learning how to create and parse JSON data is key. Even if you aren’t interacting with REST APIs, using JSON is a great way to pass complex data (read: multiple parameters) to your FileMaker scripts.
