Rapid Cloud Code Development with Parse Develop

In the past month, we've made several improvements to the parse command line tool to speed up the Cloud Code development process. The biggest improvement is the new develop command that will monitor your project for any changes and automatically upload them to the Parse Cloud. The develop command will also stream log messages to...

Importing JSON

We've supported importing data from a CSV for a while. Now we're happy to announce you can also import from JSON! CSV is still good for getting simple data types from a spreadsheet into Parse, but more complicated data types like Pointers and GeoPoints can be imported using JSON. This also means you can import...

Pushing from the JavaScript SDK and Cloud Code

The launch of Cloud Code allows developers to perform sensitive operations in a trusted environment. One such operation is sending push notifications, which you can now do with the JavaScript SDK, using the Parse.Push.send function. Let's say that you want to send a push a Mr. T saying to Mr. T fans using your app. You can...

Welcoming Cloud Code to the Parse Family

We’re excited to take the platform to the next level by introducing a powerful new service called Cloud Code. Cloud Code makes Parse a one-stop shop for mobile app development by pushing the boundaries of server code. You can now add custom validations and endpoints that are instantly and easily accessible by any client, whether...

We decided to highlight two exciting features that allow you to reduce the number of queries that were previously needed. First, we added multi-level include support. This means that you can...

A More Scalable Many-to-Many Approach

In a previous blog post, we highlighted our support for many-to-many relationships. In the past week, we've improved our handling of large many-to-many relationships, which was cumbersome with the simple array of PFObject approach. Now you can use the PFRelation primitive to deal with large many-to-many relations. The same scenario of keeping tracking of people...

Parse Supports Many to Many Relations

There is updated content on this subject. Please see this post for more information. A few days ago, we came out of beta with our 1.0 SDK. The 1.0 blog post discusses a few backwards incompatible changes, but I'm here to talk about some of the awesome new features that it included. In the new...
