Monkey Bread Software FM Plugin - Feedback on use?

Recommended Posts


I just ran across Monkey Bread Software's Filemaker PlugIn. If I am reading the feature list right, this seems like FM nirvana!

Syntax Color Coding - Been looking for this from FM for years!!

Progress Bar

Greatly enhanced webviewer support

Enhanced SQL support ..... and a zillion other features.




Anyone have any experience with this???


Also ran into this freely available external FM Script Editor, as an extension to Textmate.



Same question: Anyone have any insights?

OK, after only a few hours working with just the color coding part of this plug in, I've got to say that color coded syntax is just AWESOME! Code is far more readable. Nested structures just jump out off the page, and the speed of reading through the code is radically improved - at least for me.


Used this to look at some legacy code someone else wrote - the structure was sooo much more obvious (as well as the problems :-)


Sorry to say, this feature is Mac only, but that is just fine for me.


Figuring out how to invoke the plugin commands was interesting. Filemaker definitely needs to add this to their script editor, albeit easier to customize.
