Facebook to Sunset Parse

Feb 09, 2016


BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Facebook announced on its Parse blog that as of January 28, 2017, it will no longer offer its Parse service, which helped users build mobile apps. Over the next year, Facebook will sunset the service, giving current users time to make alternate plans for their apps. The post says, "We are committed to maintaining the backend service during the sunset period, and are providing several tools to help migrate applications to other services."

Facebook will help users start the transition process by releasing a database migration tool. It is also "releasing the open source Parse Server, which lets you run most of the Parse API from your own Node.js server." Facebook is also offering a migration guide.
