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. They said the Parse API would continue to operate as usual based on the new database. It made sure the migration could happen without downtime.
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.
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:
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.
Last Friday, giving further evidence that the powerful Parse open source framework will not die, Parse developer’s team opened the Dashboard code. The dashboard is one of the main components on Parse platform together with the Parse Server and Database.
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.
