I am a relatively new Filemaker Developer and plan to use it for building custom solutions as a career .
I know how PHP is used quite commonly with the API for Filemaker to build CWP websites for use with filemaker server .
I do not know PHP but am planning to learn it soon .
Based on the post Update to Rfm (FileMaker - Ruby adapter)
I see that Ruby and ROR can be used to develop websites that interact with filemaker server .
- Is learning Ruby instead of PHP a good idea ? Especially when I know that I may need to use Ruby and ROR for some of my other non filemaker work ?
- Will Ruby be supported by Filemaker Server in future editions ?
- Is there any reason building a PHP based site as front end for filemaker server databases is better in the long run ?
Any insight into this will be really valuable .
