Minnesota State Fair Improves Competitions Processes with FileMaker, iPads, and JavaScript

Minnesota State Fair Improves Competitions Processes with FileMaker, iPads, and JavaScript | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

...

Exhibitors register their crafts, horses, livestock, and vegetables online, which syncs to a FileMaker database.

State Fair staff uses FileMaker Go on iPads to check in livestock as they arrive through the 12-day run of the State Fair.

Judges also use FileMaker Go on iPads to enter results as they happen and award ribbons.

Results data is fed to web pages throughout the day so that the public can see live results as they are happening in the various arenas and barns.

Special versions of those pages are also fed to displays in the Compeer Arena and the “jumbo-tron” in the Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum as competitions are happening.

Carafe: The Fast & Free Tool to Implementing JavaScript In FileMaker

Carafe: The Fast & Free Tool to Implementing JavaScript In FileMaker | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Adding JavaScript to your FileMaker solution allows you to customize your functionality and do more on the platform.

The opportunities are endless.

While these capabilities have only recently started to become mainstream, it's evident FileMaker, Inc., has aligned behind the programming language.

The company has launched native JSON functions, two robust JSON APIs, a Node.js server that ships with the product, and a pure JavaScript Admin Console.

As a result, interest in JavaScript within the FileMaker developer community is growing.

Unfortunately, working with JavaScript in FileMaker isn’t exactly straightforward.

It takes a lot of time and effort to implement and maintain required specialized techniques.

This deters many developers on the platform.

After implementing JavaScript for our FileMaker clients, we quickly realized we had to find a better method.

That’s why we built Carafe, a free, open-source project that streamlines the process of integrating and working with JavaScript in FileMaker.
