fmfoo: Preview Video

Update: fmfoo is now available. Click here to download it.

I released FMEasyWeb, which makes it easy to publish information in FileMaker databases to the Web, back in June. At that time, I mentioned that I was also working on another solution that's designed to make it easy to collect information from Web forms and save it back to FileMaker.

That solution, which I'm calling fmfoo, acts as a bridge between Wufoo (an online service that makes it easy to setup online forms) and FileMaker. It's a simple PHP script that takes the data collected via Wufoo and saves it in a FileMaker database.

That project has been on hold for awhile, but I finally found some time this weekend to wrap it up. I'm hoping to release it later today.

In the meantime, here's a preview video that shows a Wufoo form submission and the data automatically making its way to FileMaker. Note that in the example I'm attaching a PDF file to the form, and it, too, gets saved back to FileMaker (as a container field).
