A library that gives you access to the powerful Parse cloud platform from your JavaScript app. For more information on Parse and its features, see the website, the JavaScript guide or API Reference.

Getting Started

The easiest way to integrate the Parse SDK into your JavaScript project is through the npm module. However, if you want to use a pre-compiled file, you can fetch it from unpkg. The development version is available at https://unpkg.com/parse/dist/parse.js, and the minified production version is at https://unpkg.com/parse/dist/parse.min.js.

Using Parse on Different Platforms

The JavaScript ecosystem is wide and incorporates a large number of platforms and execution environments. To handle this, the Parse npm module contains special versions of the SDK tailored to use in Node.js and React Native environments. Not all features make sense in all environments, so using the appropriate package will ensure that items like local storage, user sessions, and HTTP requests use appropriate dependencies. For server side rendered applications, you may set the SERVER_RENDERING variable to prevent warnings at runtime.

To use the npm modules for a browser based application, include it as you normally would:

var Parse = require('parse');

For server-side applications or Node.js command line tools, include 'parse/node':

// In a node.js environment
var Parse = require('parse/node');

For React Native applications, include 'parse/react-native':

// In a React Native application
var Parse = require('parse/react-native');
// On React Native >= 0.50 and Parse >= 1.11.0, set the Async
var AsyncStorage = require('react-native').AsyncStorage;

Upgrading to Parse SDK 2.0.0

With Parse SDK 2.0.0, gone are the backbone style callbacks and Parse.Promises.
