Hosting Files on Parse Server

Parse Server, the open source Parse backend, initially shipped with a GridStore adapter as the only option to store your files. This uses your MongoDB database to save file content and is a great way to get you started quickly with minimal effort and dependencies. However, for heavy production usage, it’s advisable to use a more scalable data store, optimized for storing files and that won’t put additional load on your MongoDB instance.

Last week, we released Parse Server, the open source version of the Parse backend. Since then, the repository has already received over 4,000 stars, 700 forks, and dozens of pull requests. We are working hard to make it the best open source app framework. Developers with an existing Parse app should migrate their apps to Parse Server now. In addition, if you’re building a new mobile app, Parse Server is a great way to build out your backend, coupled with the Parse SDKs.

Moving On

We have a difficult announcement to make. Beginning today we’re winding down the Parse service, and Parse will be fully retired after a year-long period ending on January 28, 2017. We’re proud that we’ve been able to help so many of you build great mobile apps, but we need to focus our resources elsewhere.

Apple TV and Apple Watch SDKs are Here

With the launch of Apple TV this past fall, a new development medium and platform has been unleashed. Here at Parse, we’re extremely excited about the potential of this new platform and its ability to change the way you interact with your television. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Apple monumentally influence the world of software development—we’ve also seen its impact with watchOS, iOS, and and OS X. Over the years, our Parse iOS and OS X SDKs have been well-loved by developers around the globe, and in April, we released support for the Apple Watch and App Extensions.

The New Parse Developer Experience

Today we’re excited to give our users beta access to the new Parse Dashboard. It’s the result of months of effort spent working to bring you the best developer experience we can. It’s more than just a fresh coat of paint though — it’s completely rebuilt from the ground up with tools like React and Webpack to make your workflow faster and more seamless.

Thread Safety Basics on iOS/OS X

Dealing with concurrency and reentrancy is one of the more difficult challenges any library will inevitably face as it grows. Here at Parse, we have put a large effort towards ensuring that anything you do with our SDKs is thread-safe, without letting performance suffer.
