The Relationship Graph in SeedCode Complete | FileMaker - SeedCode

The Relationship Graph in SeedCode Complete | FileMaker - SeedCode | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

We’ve been asked to provide a descriptive overview of how the relationships graph in SeedCode Complete is structured and why.

So I’ll try to do that without getting into too much technical detail, or philosophy.

 

(For some of the philosophy here, checkout Jason’s posts on the origins of the Selector Connector pattern and why he chose “cards” as the design metaphor in Complete.)

Rapid Application Development: Go Native or Go Platform? | FileMaker

Rapid Application Development: Go Native or Go Platform? | FileMaker | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

...

 

Well-suited for workgroups, it fills the void between desktop software like Excel and enterprise-grade tools built on Oracle or SAP. Its strength lies in its ease of use: A developer can build in hours what might take days or even weeks to create in a traditional programming language. 

FileMaker solutions deploy to desktop, mobile and web clients with a single shared codebase.

Developers often choose to create device-specific interfaces, but the underlying application, data architecture and business logic all live within one common solution.

It’s certainly not a new concept to code-once, deploy-to-multiple-platforms, but in the case of FileMaker, deployment is a one-step process of publishing an app to an application server.

No need to compile or modify solutions for a specific OS or platform.

Users work with FileMaker solutions via desktop, mobile and web clients much as they might access a website via browser on a desktop or mobile device.

This code-once, deploy-once approach simplifies development effort significantly.
