Rehab Studios implements trends from PSFK's Future of Retail to reinvent grocery shopping

Rehabstudio’s activation personalizes interactions at Whole Foods by incorporating information and creating an interactive environment through personal electronics.

Upon entering the store, the shopper’s mobile device would recognize they are in a Whole Foods.

It would give the wearer contextual suggestions based on availability, location, and history to give users additional information about staying healthy.  

Creative partner at rehabstudio Tim Rodgers explains, “Wearable devices allow for a hands-free, personalized, and private guided experience in a retail environment.

It’s like having a personal shopper guide you around the store, it knows what the consumer likes, what they might want to try and buy.”

Google Maps become affordable | FileMaker Maps | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Since the introduction of WebViewer, Google Maps were quite popular in FileMaker solutions.


What many FileMaker developers may have missed though is that in most cases they were using Google Maps API illegally and Google could ban their API key or IP address from accessing the feature at any time.

FileMaker 17 Data API

FileMaker 17 Data API | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

The FileMaker 17 Data API is one of the least understood new features of FileMaker 17. 

Essentially, the Data API allows a FileMaker 17 server to interact with web services directly using the REST protocol.

OK, let's unpack that a bit.

REST stands for Representational State Transfer, which doesn't shed much light on the subject.

Let's try again. 

Essentially, REST lets the World Wide Web (WWW) communicate with a FileMaker database.  Easily, because the REST set of tools exist in just about any programming language and are easy to use.

Let's try a real world example:  Assume you have a WordPress website with form generator – something simple, like a 'Contact Us' form. 

Simply put, that form can add records directly to a FileMaker Database using the Data API.

On paying for software

On paying for software | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

The business of software is a bit of a miracle.

Properly designed, software isn’t more expensive to create when more people use it.

In fact, when network effects are involved, it’s actually more efficient when more people use it.

That’s one of the reasons that people hesitate to pay for software. There isn’t a feeling of scarcity, that the store will run out if it’s free…

But of course, this overlooks the two-and-a-half essential missing factors:

FileMaker offers many different options for charting, but if you need a chart that is not available in FileMaker, you should consider using Google Charts.

 

Google Charts is a free Javascript framework that can be used in conjunction with web viewers in FileMaker to extend your charting capabilities.

Since native FileMaker charting is much quicker and simpler to set up, let’s look at some Google Charts.

Only Available in Google Charts

Yesterday I (Tim Dietrich) released version 1.0 of "Temper," an alternative Web API for the FileMaker platform. 

 

With Temper, developers can make API calls to create, read, update, and delete records, run scripts, set and get the contents of containers, and more. 

Temper uses the FileMaker API for XML, so there are no additional licenses needed to transfer data, and no need to worry about hitting data transfer limits.

It works with all versions of FileMaker Server that support the FileMaker API for XML. 

Temper was developed using Xojo.

The source code is fully accessible, and it is being distributed under an MIT License.

 

It's available for download at: https://temperapi.com I'll be demonstrating Temper during a Xojo Webinar that's being held on June 12, 2018 1:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada). To register, visit: https://lnkd.in/gbCaeB3

 

 

-------

 

 

Simplify the development of desktop, web and mobile apps with Xojo.

Temper is an open-source Xojo project from Tim Dietrich that provides and easy API to your FileMaker hosted databases.

Come watch Tim give an overview of Temper and then see how you can use it with Xojo to make an iOS app that displays FileMaker data.

P.S. Even if you can't attend at the scheduled time, be sure to sign up so you will receive a notification when the recording is available.

Comment utiliser les icônes Material Design dans FileMaker ?

Je suis toujours étonné de voir à quel point nous nous adaptons et réagissons facilement aux visuels.

Non seulement la fonctionnalité est importante pour le développement de logiciels, mais le design est également très important.

Puisque le temps est une ressource limitée, l’ergonomie et l’intuitivité sont des facteurs clés pour encourager les utilisateurs à adopter une nouvelle application.

En général, les éléments visuels déterminent la rapidité avec laquelle les utilisateurs peuvent s’approprier une nouvelle application.

Le design comprend de multiples et diverses aspects — la couleur, la mise en page, les polices, les tailles, etc.

Il convient donc d’être stratégique avec les éléments de design, y compris les micro-images que nous appelons icônes.

Ces symboles, en apparence petits, ont en fait un grand impact sur la navigabilité pour l’utilisateur et sa compréhension d’une application.
