We understand that this won’t be an easy transition, and we’re working hard to make this process as easy as possible. We are committed to maintaining the backend service during the sunset period, and are providing several tools to help migrate applications to other services.
The Parse API will continue to function, though Facebook is also releasing a database migration tool to help developers transition to a MongoDB database. The company is also releasing its open source Parse Server to run an API from a Node.js server.
It’s big opportunity for Twitter Fabric toolkit offers much of the same functionality as Parse. But Fabric is a pivot for the company, something almost entirely unrelated to the Twitter application itself. The platform consists of three Kits that address some of the major issues faced by developers, such as stability, distribution, and revenue and identity. The tools are meant to woo mobile app developers into the Twitter fold, with easy ways to manage app logins, make money off ads, and test their apps.
Stability: Crashlytics Kit
Crashlytics was built to solve all apps crash issue. It makes the time between detecting, accessing and fixing bugs much shorter so you spend less time debugging and more time focused on building great apps.
Distribution: Twitter Kit
Twitter Kit, which includes three new products to help you tap into Twitter to get the growth you want like: Native Tweet embeds, Tweet composer and Sign in with Twitter
Revenue: MobPub Kit
MoPub, is the ad exchange that Twitter acquired soon before going public. It will be wrapped into the Fabric fold as an option for developers to use to make money off ads. MoPub is one step above Facebook’s Audience Network; it’s a network of networks, so to speak. It’s an easy way for developers to manage their ad inventory, and determine which ad networks will pay them the most.
Facebook said it will begin winding down the Parse service, it will be fully retired after a year-long period ending on January 28,2017. Parse proud that they been able to help many of us (mobile developer) for building great mobile app.
