One of Generator’s primary jobs is to remove the tedium of doing the same thing over and over again. Not only is it boring, but it is error prone. If something can be automated it should be automated. In v2.06, Generator makes it even easier to go from JSON to FileMaker database fields. We’ll cover that in this video.
If you have some JSON on your clipboard you can quickly create all the fields in a FileMaker table, and create a script that maps those fields to your JSON object. It takes about 30 seconds. Of course, if you already have fields in your table you can map to those too.
There is clearly more we can do here. We could add the table for example, or we could try to guess the field type before we create the field. We’ll get to that at some point.
By the way, in case you didn’t know Generator is completely free an unlocked!
Happy Generating 🙂
