Forging Titanium Episode 5: Parse – A Simple Back End for Mobile Applications

0 Flares 0 Flares ×
Editor’s note: This and future episodes of Forging Titanium are available here. In this week’s episode, we’ll be taking a look at Parse, a new service which allows developers to quickly and easily set up persistent back end data services for their application. This is particularly useful for mobile applications that aren’t terribly concerned with back end business logic, like games or utility applications. While Parse is still in beta and has a few kinks that need to be worked out, it’s definitely a project worth tracking, and is super easy to use in Titanium. Find out how to use a simple Parse client in this week’s episode of Forging Titanium. Episode Resources:

    Sounds great! Can you give any specifics as to implementation? Do we just use the files in the git repo along with the Parse credentials they provide after sign up? Or is there a Ti version they provide?

  2. Jefferey Wassnik

    How is this interesting? It takes a whole 12 seconds to build a rails or node.js backend that can do the same thing, and can use well-known HTTP apis.

  3. Are you guys planning on releasing a module for Parse rather than just a modified way to use their REST API?
