[ANN] MBS FileMaker Plugin grows to 3000 functions

Discussion created by monkeybreadsoftware on Feb 10, 2015

10th February 2015 - Monkeybread Software develops for years the MBS FileMaker Plugin. The current development version 5.0pr10 includes now over 3000 functions, a new record!


Shortly we release our Version 5.0. New in this version are global hotkeys for Mac and a lot of improvements for TAPI, WebView, DynaPDF, Barcode, GraphicsMagick, Excel, ListDialog, Audit and SystemInfo functions. Our Menubar functions allow you to run FileMaker menu commands by script. Using FM.RunDataDesignReport function you can even automate generating a database design report. If you have a typing mismatch in a function name our plugin will now suggest a correction. And if some error happens in a script, the plugin can show a notification on OS X with the error message, so you notice script problems easier.


Many FileMaker developers trust the MBS Plugin. Normally new developers find the MBS Plugin due to an interesting function. Often while researching for a client if a possible feature can be added to a solution in FileMaker. Once the developer knows how powerful our plugins is, they enjoy using it and find new functions regularly.


The development of MBS Plugin startet 2006 with early versions. Soon in 2010 we had version 2.0 with over 400 functions. End of 2012 we published version 3.0 with already 1375 functions. Early 2014 with version 4.0 we got 2298 functions. In the last year alone we added over 700 functions for you. No wonder, as we have a constant stream of feature requests coming in from our plugin users.


Especially our free extras like the line numbers and syntax highlighting in script editor brought us a lot of new clients in the last two years.
