FileMaker + RESTfm + LiveCode

Post by aphero » Tue Jul 11, 2017 1:54 pm

Hi All,

Brand spanking new to LiveCode. FileMaker developer for 10 years, I am pushing the boundaries of FM, including RESTful and iOS apps generated by the FileMaker iOS App SDK.

Is there a way for a LiveCode file to connect to a FileMaker data source?

Is there a syncing framework at all?

I have native iOS apps accessing FileMaker as a data source via the RESTfm (RESTful web services for FileMaker) that work successfully.

I am having an issue connecting to a FileMaker data souce via API.

I have implemented Stripe with LiveCode, so I feel there is a hidden header somewhere that needs to be disclosed as it works when I am using html rather than json.

Thanks,
DK

See httpHeaders and liburlLastHttpHeaders in the Dictionary.
