Jumpstart for new projects

FM Starter has been designed as a starter file, which combines important functions which are used in most projects. With the help of FM Starter it is much easier to get your own projects off the ground. At the same time it’s all about a simple yet powerful structure, which help you to integrate new functionality and further developments with ease.

As a developer, you have the experience that several functions and components are needed in almost any application. A user management solution, for example, or a dynamic navigation are such components. Other tasks can be a generic search function, multilingual text labels, or important basics like a project structure and design templates. FM Starter offers you all this in a single integrated FileMaker file, ready to use for your next project. FM Starter speeds up your own development tremendously. Just focus on what you really wanted to do.

FM Starter is a starter file. It is not a starter solution, as there are many around. FM Starter is not a ready-to-go address book solution, nor a CRM-application. It isn’t programmed to anything specific, but rather gives you a toolbox and a work bench to craft your next project on.

FM Starter is the foundation on which you build your next project.
