Recently I had the pleasure of speaking with Jeremy Brown on The Context Podcast about an open-source project called JSONata that enables you to query and transform JSON.
The JSONata site is packed with useful information, including this short video…
…as well as…
- Extensive documentation
- A link to the Stack Overflow forum, where you can ask questions (which may or may not get answered), and
- The JSONata Exerciser, where you can experiment with pre-existing examples, or with your own pasted in JSON
Okay, a JSON query and transformation language sounds intriguing, at least in theory, but wouldn’t it be great if we could harness that power from within FileMaker? Well, now we can, utilizing techniques in this demo, built by Jeremy and shared here with his permission.
Demo file: JSONata.zip (requires FM 19+ on Mac, 19.3+ on Windows)
Note: the demo requires an online connection to access the JSONata library. Continue reading “FileMaker 19 + JSONata”
