Walk through setting up bzREST-ruby in a Ruby on Rails project
The Integrating FileMaker’s Data API and Ruby with the fmrest-ruby gem article will walk you through setting up bzREST-ruby (using fmrest-ruby libraries) in a Ruby on Rails project. Some level of familiarity with Ruby / Rails and FileMaker’s Data API is advised, although much of the content covered is applicable to any Ruby project, Rails or not.
bzREST-ruby is an fmrest wrapper for these Ruby gems:
- fmrest-spyke, providing an ActiveRecord-like ORM library built on top of fmrest-core and Spyke.
- fmrest-core, providing the core Faraday connection builder, session management, and other core utilities.
- fmrest-rails, providing Rails integration.
In addition, the optional fmrest-cloud gem adds support for FileMaker Cloud.
