Faster FileMaker Coding with FMSnippets for TextExpander
February 4, 2009 in FileMaker
[prMac.com] Orlando, FL, USA - CampSoftware released FMSnippets to help FileMaker developers code faster and click less. Based on TextExpander for Mac OS X, FMSnippets for TextExpander contains over 250 abbreviations for FileMaker 9 and FileMaker 10. The set of snippets includes practically all functions used in the FileMaker calculation engine helping developers get more done in less time.
Once TextExpander is installed, you import FMSnippets. Then you can type simple abbreviations rather than type out or reformat FileMaker functions. This will make your development faster, allowing you to focus on the code rather than trying to find the functions you need amongst the very long list of functions. Imagine typing 'fmgsp' for 'Get ( ScriptParameter )' instead of having to choose a menu item and then scrolling through the list!
Hal Gumbert of CampSoftware said, "It's all writing more code with less clicking. FMSnippets has saved our developers hours of time by assisting them to be more productive. According to the TextExpander statistics, one of our developers saved four hours over a two month period with 1,226 snippets expanded saving him from an additional 95,962 keypresses!"
FMSnippets requires TextExpander from SmileOnMyMac and includes functions for both FileMaker Pro 9 and FileMaker Pro 10 from FileMaker.com. Some snippets will work with earlier version of FileMaker Pro.
