What developers say about 24U Plug-In Template:

"24U FM Template might be useful if you want to reinvent the wheel, but not the axle and the rest of the car." -- Jay Gonzales, A.E. Wood & Erickson

"They took the example plug-in project from FileMaker and simplified it a bunch by wrapping it with their own stuff! (BTW - It's FREE!!) It's a whole lot simpler to start with the 24U template than it is with FileMaker's!" -- Mike Faulkner, Sky Dancer Studios, Inc.

"A huge thanks for making the plug-in template. From Zero knowledge of CW to producing a filemaker plug-in in less than 1 week. Not bad!" -- John Walsh
