然而Parse Server还是一个开发应用和API的更好选择。接下来会为两者进行分析并说明为什么Parse Server 会是更好的选择。

Parse announced about their shut down on January 28th. With this, they also released a database migration tool that lets you migrate data from your Parse app to any MongoDB database.

Hacking Parse open source with some workarounds

 

Parse server is one of the best alternatives for Parse. But as we have seen in our last article “Parse open-source is moving fast but still has some features to be opened up. See which” there are a few features that are not available in the open-source version of Parse. But there are alternatives for each of those features. Let’s take a quick look at some of the ways to close the gaps between Parse Server and make it work closer to Parse.

Migrating the data and setting up your own Parse Server is one of the most preferred options as Parse bids goodbye soon. Open source Parse Server and Dashboard are an excellent replacement for Parse.com with the support from Parse community. Many look at it as a great potential framework as you can develop according to your needs and get improvements and new features from developer’s community. Parse open-source already supports many features of Parse.com but here are some of them which are yet to be open sourced.

If you are half way through developing an app, you must be deciding about the right time to migrate.
You need not be panicking right now because the performance that Parse will deliver it’s enough to finish your app’s development. Additionally. The April 28th deadline has no impact on you because there are no users for your app yet.

But there are other good reasons to move now, especially to anticipate issues on Parse migration and on to adapt Parse features. You need to figure out alternatives to build, host and manage your app.

Let’s analyse some scenarios:


Firebase versus Parse Server

Firebase versus Parse Server

O Google recentemente liberou uma nova versão do Firebase. A mesma fornece uma plataforma unificada para Android, iOS e aplicações web. Painel administrativo, Analytics, autenticação, indexação, laboratório de testes e notificações são algumas das funcionalidades introduzidas na última versão do Firebase. O Parse Server é uma melhor escolha para criação de novos aplicativos ou APIs. Continue lendo para ter uma comparação completa entre ambas as plataformas e descobrir o motivo que o Parse Server continua sendo melhor que o Firebase.

If you’ve been using Parse as the backend that supports your mobile, IoT and Web apps, this is the perfect time to try out the back{4}app platform. Parse announced that its service will be discontinued on Jan/2017, made its technology open-source and provided a way to migrate an existing backend hosted by Parse to another BaaS provider. When searching for a new BaaS, we hope that you try out back4app.
