Getting Started

This guide covers the basics of how to install, setup and use Devin in only a few minutes. For a more detailed guide, see the full Documentation.

If you do not manage your own servers, we got your cloud provider covered as well! If they are not already a Devin Partner, they can reach out to us through this Email.

Server Setup
On your Development Server, download and start the installer by running the following terminal commands as root:
wget https://download.devin.fm/downloads/install_devin.sh
chmod +x install_devin.sh
sudo ./install_devin.sh
  • Optionally, install Devin Server on additional servers
    (like test or production)
  • Save the API Key generated during installation.
2
App Setup
On your computer:
  • Download and install the App
  • Restart FileMaker Pro
  • Open the App, create an account and connect to your Development Server
3
Add your servers
In the App, go to Settings:
  • Add FileMaker Admin Console credentials
  • For staging and production servers, enter the API Key from the installer.
    If lost, this can be found on the sever in opt/Devin/info.json
  • Use Test Connection to verify the connection to FMS Admin API and Devin API
4
Create your first project
In the App:
  • Create a Project
  • Add files and branch them for development
  • Link production files
  • Save versions and release them to production
  • Use the Update button to automatically roll out new versions to clients. This will automatically clone, deploy and migrate the latest main version to production.
