Scodigo Offers Free PHPx Plug-in for FileMaker Pro Development During the 2009 FileMaker Developer Conference

Get your very own FileMaker Pro plug-in function that does exactly what you want

Kalamazoo, Michigan – August 13, 2009. Scodigo is offering free development of PHPx functions for users of our award-winning SmartPill PHP plug-in for FileMaker Pro. This offer is good for the first 10 people that stop by our booth and fill out our function request form.

What Is PHPx?

PHPx allows SmartPill to dynamically load additional plug-in functions. New functions will magically appear in the FileMaker calculation dialog and can then be used just like any other function. No PHP experience is required. We currently offer PHPx functions for file, HTTP, FTP, script triggering, encryption, and barcode generation. Other ideas include credit card processing, send/receive email, regular expressions, base 64 encode/decode, LDAP, SSH, shell, zip, image manipulation, SQL and more. Have an idea? Let us know!

30% Off Devcon Special!

All SmartPill licensing will be 30% off during Devcon and for the following week (offer ends August 24, 2009).
