Parse Server Security

Parse Server Security

Hello everyone in this article I’m going to talk about Security when using Parse Server on Back4App. As security is not a topic that makes developers happy I’ll be very concise and direct. My intention here was to provide a quick security checklist to review your App before making it a Production App.


Database Publishing Software

The Database Hub Software project on Back4app was launched to help people to Publish any data they want on the web(Xls, CSV, complete databases) and also consume/use data from others. Also, we wanted to provide an option for people to benefit each other from working together to acquire more complete and accurate data by working together on a Data project using the Databse HUB.


How to Publish a Database

How to Publish a Database

In this article, I’m going to detail how you can create, import data and publish a database on Database HUB.

There are no prerequisites required to Publish the Data you want. If you have scrapped or exported this data from another source the only recommendation is to convert those data into CSV format.


The Open Source Databases Platform

The Open Source Databases Platform

When we started the Database HUB project on Back4App our vision was: What if people could build and sustain Databases together in the same way they do with code? What if they can benefit each other from work together to get more accurate and complete data to use on their App projects?
 
The journey hasn’t been easy. We’ve been working very hard based on user’s feedback to transform the HUB on a Social Platform to build and use Databases.
 
We’re happy to see how developers are Connecting to a ready Database in a few clicks and using it on their Apps.
 
Even happier to see the users publishing their own Databases, sharing their work and collaborating with each other to build Better Datasets useful to many other developers. You can see users opening issues here at the World Continents, Countries, and Cities, for example.


MERN Stack in minutes

MERN Stack in minutes

A set of tools and frameworks being used to create a software product is known as the technology stack. MERN stack is one of the widely used technological Stack in the software development world. In particular, MERN Stack uses MongoDB, NodeJS, ExpressJS and React JS to create web applications.
However, when it comes to Parse then you can find integrated MongoDB, NodeJS, Express JS and React JS in one single framework. So we can ensure that you are going to create a big hit in terms of software products using the MERN Stack in minutes. Let’s take a look at the following details to get a better understanding of how Parse/Back4App can make your life easier.


Announcing the Database HUB: Easiest way to fetch data to your App

Announcing the Database HUB: Easiest way to fetch data to your App

Today we’re thrilled to share with you the newest Back4App Platform: The Database HUB. As part of our mission to help developers build apps faster, the HUB is a public database repository designed to help you to populate your App with ready-to-use data in record time. With the Database HUB, you can both connect to or clone a public database into an app on Back4App in only a few steps.

How Two4Tea scaled its Game Application to 55 Million users with Back4App

There are a variety of different businesses that have made great use of Back4App’s services and flexible backend to launch and improve their applications. This particular partnership, with game-maker Two4Tea, is notable because Back4App was able to help provide support on all phases for a popular app, from building to launch to scaling to optimizing.  Here’s a closer look at how our platform helped this client refine and scale their operations.


What is GraphQL? Your app 10x faster

What is GraphQL? Your app 10x faster

GraphQL is a query language for APIs developed by Facebook in 2012. In simple words, it’s used to load data from a server to a client (i.e. from an API to your application) much more efficiently than traditional services.

It’s fair to say that GraphQL is unlike anything you might have used before which is precisely why a large number of organizations have switched over to it for building APIs.

In this article, I’ll take a closer look at some of the major problems behind current REST APIs and how GraphQL solves them while improving productivity. I’ll also explain some of the key benefits developers can experience by using GraphQL and whether you should make the switch from REST to GraphQL.

Let’s get started.
