Demo license for LuaFy Plus
FileMaker Pro and the LuaFy plug-in file for your platform is all you need. No additional third-party software is required.
Download, unzip, and place the plug-in file into the appropriate Extensions folder of your FileMaker Pro installation or use the Install Plug-in File script step with the LuaFy plug-in stored in a container field in your solution.
The plug-in files are digitally signed. To check the digital signature on Windows, examine the file's Properties to see the Digital Signatures tab to see that it is signed by "Cosmic Consulting". On Mac OS X 10.5 or later use "codesign -dv -vv LuaFy.fmplugin" in the Terminal to see that the signature is present and the first "Authority" is "Developer ID Application: Thomas Hays".
