Parse Server is a great, quick way to create an app backend without requiring years of knowledge and time.
There are a few additional steps you can do to ensure that your code is the best it can be, and be assured that your Parse Server always runs as smoothly as possible, even as your Cloud Code continues to grow.
The most amazing feature of Parse Server is that it’s accessible for developers of all skill levels.
Personally, I started playing around with Objective-C in 2012.
Parse was a way for me to build a complete online app, without having the in-depth knowledge of how to build networking, storage, user systems, etc.
Although it might seem daunting, contributing to our great open-source project is encouraged to all developers, and in this blog post, I’m going to give you an insight as to how.
We’re glad to announce that Parse Server now has support for GraphQL. GraphQL is an open-source data query and manipulation language that helps developers build fast and stable apps. It uses types to ensure Apps only ask for what’s possible and provide clear and helpful errors.
Parse Server is now the easiest way to instantly create a GraphQL API.
Amongst the core team we recently discussed adopting a governance model to make the Parse Community more transparent, make the decision making process more clear and make it easier to contribute to the project.
The Parse Platform has changed a lot over the past few months with the departure of one core contributor and the arrival of new contributors. We also look back at the successes of the last year and what’s in the works for the coming months.
The summer has been really busy and we’ve dusted off the JS SDK, stripping out large parts of its legacy.
Backbone style callbacks are definitely out.
We’d like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone in the community and beyond.
It’s been a great year and we couldn’t be providing all that is parse without everyone’s help.
Version 1.4.0 of the Parse PHP SDK is now available for use.
This is a jump from 1.3.0 which now includes quite a few new features. Among them being relative time queries, aggregate queries and index management.
