Introducing FMEasyHTML

Here's a sneak peek of FMEasyHTML, a WYSIWYG HTML / text editor for the FileMaker platform. And yes, it will be provided via an open source license.

FMEasyHTML is one of the components of the upcoming FMBlogger solution that I've been working on. With FMEasyHTML (and the recently added Markdown support), FMBlogger will make it very easy to manage a blog's content directly from within FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go, or FileMaker WebDirect.

I hadn't planned on releasing FMEasyHTML separately, but after giving it some thought, I decided that it made sense to do so. I have a number of clients who manage Web-published content from within their FileMaker databases (product descriptions, news, etc). With FMEasyHTML, they will no longer need to manually type HTML code, or work on it outside of FileMaker.

I don't have a firm ETA on FMEasyHTML yet, but after I do a bit more testing, I'll release the beta.
