24U Software releases fmRESTor for FileMakerģ Data API

fmRESTor is an object-based PHP library developed to interact with databases and custom apps hosted on a FileMakerģ Server via the new FileMaker Data API from within a PHP code

Prague, CZ -- June 20, 2018 --- 24U Software releases fmRESTor, an object-based PHP library developed to seamlessly interact with databases and custom apps hosted on a FileMaker Server via the new powerful FileMaker Data API from within a PHP code.

With fmRESTor, PHP developers donít have to learn FileMaker Data API in detail, they can just create a new object, passing it necessary parameters to connect to the database, and use fmRESTorís easy to understand methods to access or modify their data. fmRESTor will take care of authentication, exceptions, logging, and even session preservation in order for the PHP code to be a well-behaving client for the FileMaker Data API without the developer having to worry about these technical details.

24U believes that the whole FileMaker developers community will benefit from the FileMaker Platform not only having new powerful RESTful API, but also developers using the API nicely and efficiently, therefore they decided to make this library available as Open Source.

Features of fmRESTor:

  • One object class conveniently handles everything
  • Automatically generates authentication token
  • Re-uses existing token to avoid unnecessary additional connections
  • Automatically re-generates expired token
  • Handles exceptions and provides meaningful error results
  • Can handle raw form data for easier container uploads
  • Provides customizable debug logging
  • Requirements:

  • PHP >= 5.5
  • cURL
  • FileMaker database hosted on FileMaker Server 17 or FileMaker Cloud 1.17
  • Availability and Pricing of fmRESTor::

    fmRESTor is available as open source, licensed under the "GNU LGPLv3" License. 24U greatly appreciates contributions, but cannot provide free support for the library. Developers may hire 24U to help them with their projects, either by purchasing developer-level support or by utilizing 24Uís custom development services.
