Publish web ressources from your custom app, dynamically

Sometimes you need to publish some web resources such as a javascript file or a css file on the fly from your custom app. The main reason to do so is if you want to interact with Web Viewers in Web Direct, because Web Viewers are rendered as iFrames and thus you can’t “calculate” a too long code directly with the FileMaker calculation engine.

Up to now, you had to create the code, upload it to the htdocs folder of your server, test it, and redo. And you had a dependency, which is never something you like to have, especially if you manage multiple apps or are a SBA Partner with many servers.

As of today you can simply export from you app to the pat

Get ( DocumentsPath ) & "web_docs"

and your file is immediately published!
