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.

You’ll find this post in your
_posts directory. Go ahead and edit it and re-build the site to see your changes. You can rebuild the site in many different ways, but the most common way is to run
jekyll serve, which launches a web server and auto-regenerates your site when a file is updated.
To add new posts, simply add a file in the
_posts directory that follows the convention
YYYY-MM-DD-name-of-post.ext and includes the necessary front matter. Take a look at the source for this post to get an idea about how it works.
In this post, I will attempt to convince you that Parse Server is worthy of your time and interest, even if you’ve never heard of Parse before. I will also make the case that Parse Server is and can be objectively better than the hosted Parse service. I hope that by the end of it, you will consider evaluating it for your next project.
