Create a ``FileMakerModel``:

from django.contrib.flatpages.models import FlatPage
from django.contrib.sites.models import Site
from filemaker import fields, FileMakerModel

class FileMakerFlatPage(FileMakerModel):

# The first argument to a FileMaker field should be the field name for
# that item on the FileMaker layout
pk = fields.IntegerField('zpkFlatpageID')
url = fields.CharField('Url_FileMaker_Field')
title = fields.CharField('Title_FileMaker_Field')
content = fields.CharField('Content_FileMaker_Field')
# You can pass in a default value to any field
template_name = fields.CharField(
'Template_Name_Field', default='flatpages/default.html')
registration_required = fields.BooleanField(
'Registration_Required_Field', default=False)
sites = fields.ModelListField('SITES', model=FileMakerSite)

meta = {
'connection': {
'url': '',
'db': 'Db_Name',
'layout': 'Layout_Name',
'model': FlatPage,
'pk_name': 'pk',

class FileMakerSite(FileMakerModel):
# On related fields we specify the relative field to the field name
# specified on the calling model (FileMakerFlatPage), unless the
# calling model uses the special '+self' value which passes the layout
# of that model to the sub model
domain = fields.CharField('Domain_field')
name = fields.CharField('Name_Field')

meta = {
'model': Site,
# abstract here means it is a child of an actual FileMaker layout
'abstract': True,

Query FileMaker for instances of your model, and convert them to django
instances using the ``to_django`` method:
>>> # The Django style methods will convert field names
>>> FlatPage.objects.count() == 0
>>> fm_page = FileMakerFlatPage.objects.get(pk=1)
>>> fm_page.to_django()
<FlatPage: pk=1>
>>> FlatPage.objects.count() == 1

You can also use the FileMaker style manager methods to query:

>>> FileMakerFlatPage.objects.find(zpkFlatpageID=1)
