Had a chance to catch up with Angelo Luchi at Pause On Error and was very impressed with what he has planned for Foxtail Labs. “Labs” is a suite of hosted APIs that let FileMaker developers employ techniques that previously required plugins. The first lab involves using URLs to generate bar codes: vey useful for apps on FileMaker Go where plugins won’t run, but also makes sense on Pro for folks who don’t want to install or update plugins.

This was part of a big theme at Pause: leveraging FileMaker Server to do things you can’t do on Go. I think this could be a great way to take advantage of third party tech, and I know Micah Woods from Scodigo (makers of Smart Pill) is looking into this as well.
