Parse migration: time is running out

After Parse shutdown announcement: “Parse will be fully retired after a year-long period ending on January 28, 2017”, one of the most important user’s concerns is the ideal due date to conclude all the Parse migration.

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.




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 back{4}app 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.

Parse Webhooks

As comunicações de servidor a servidor do Webhooks mantêm os desenvolvedores informados sobre eventos de aplicativos conectados a várias interações de usuários e dispositivos. Eles ficam livres para trabalhar em sua linguagem de codificação preferida e definir uma URL para receber um POST vinculado a um gatilho, por exemplo, beforeSave e afterSave em objetos, ou quando uma determinada função de nuvem é chamada. Enquanto o servidor estiver em execução  o Cloud Code é capaz de integrar com webhooks.
