How to start connecting my FM solution to other tools via API

I have built a Filemaker solution - so far entirely with native Filemaker functions. I am now looking to expand the database's functionality by connecting it to external apps using these apps' API (I'm speaking in general as there are different apps I want to connect to).


However, I have no idea how/where to start. I don't want to outsource this as I really want to learn this, but I have no idea:

  • how to set up such an API connection (do I need FM extensions or plugins)?
  • whether I will need to learn additional coding languages, and, if so, which ones are recommended?
  • any other suggestions you might want to share with an API newbie?


Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated. Thank you!
