WordPress REST API, JSON and FileMaker Pro


An example file for the interaction between FileMaker Pro 16 and the WordPress REST API. This is not a ready-to-go solution, but the file shows several core techniques. Especially the processing of JSON data is shown here, and this file can be used to learn how JSON works in connection with FileMaker Pro.

  • REST API for WordPress and WooCommerce
  • Read JSON data (Insert from URL / cURL: GET)
  • Interpret JSON data
  • Parse JSON data into records
  • Build JSON blocks from records

The interaction between FileMaker Pro and web technologies is dramatically simplified by JSON. Knowing JSON helps to integrate with many webservices through a standardized interface. All techniques shown here not only apply to WordPress, but also to many other services.
