Parse open-source is moving fast

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.


I’m still developing my app on Parse.com. Should I stay or should I go?

I’m still developing my app on Parse.com. Should I stay or should I go?

There are two important announcements from Parse.

  • Post April 28th, apps which have not migrated their database would assume a lower priority of traffic.
  • Parse will ultimately shut down after January 28th.

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.


Why back4app is the best option to Parse users?

Why back4app is the best option to Parse users?

We are really sorry to see parse go. We are also wondering what questions are the Parse users trying to answer now: What service can I trust? Can I have the same problem in the future? Or if I had this problem how can I mitigate them? How much effort I need to migrate my apps now? I’m a Back4app founder and will try to clarify some of these questions.


Parse is shutting down. What are the alternatives?

At this moment, the best alternative to Parse users is to migrate his database and application service to a Parse solution hosting provider. It’s the best plug and play option. If you want to setup your own Parse server its possible too but it’s not so simple.

After the parse shut down the new trend to BAAS providers is to offer a migration that will require a significant effort developing the backend on its solution and re-coding the front-end/mobile app connection with the API.
