Modular FileMaker | JSON

Using JSON with FileMaker – Todd Geist


Provides native support for JSON in FileMaker. It will parse JSON encoded text into a format that can easily be read via custom functions. It will also convert text encoded by custom functions into JSON.


#Parameters is highly recommended, although the JSON: READ ME script lists the exact custom functions required/recommended.


The concept for this module was proposed by Todd Geist.

The logic for JSON to FM conversion was copied as closely as possible from Douglas Crockford.


FYI, JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate.
